Arts in the Park When reflecting on what art is, Lawren Harris said, â€œThe truth is that works of art test the spectator as much as the spectator tests themâ€?. During this programme, students will question and understand the subjectivity of art while also learning about various artistic mediums such as visual arts, drama and dance.
