By studying the events of history and the propaganda that shapes those events, you will gain insight into the importance of art in society. Hopefully, you will reach conclusions based on what happens when artists don't share a social responsibility in their freedom of expression and when society suppresses freedom of expression and creative ideas. The work you create as an artist will reflect your understanding of the elements of good art production as well as your personal response to what you have studied.
