Does a person need empathy to create great art?
2 Points to prove my thesis
"Yes as a painter you will need a hand, and as an actor I need a voice and a body but before getting to those, we need to develop the eye, the ear, the heart" (Smith pg 123).
This shows that an artist needs many things to create grate art.
This proves that a person needs empathy to create grate art.
"What are you going to draw for him?"..."Use your imagination" (Potok pg 158).
This shows that an empathetic artist has more imagination in what they create.
This proves that empathy creates great art.
