Mistaken About the Nature of Art.
on June 24, 2016
I've given this show two stars because my youngest enjoys watching it. I find it annoying on many levels.
Foremost, the producers of this show are mistaken about the Nature and role of Art. Art solves nothing. It's not supposed to. Art is significant only for it's artistry, it's function is to evoke an emtional response. This show relentlessly thrusts crafts forward as art and insists that each episode feature some problem "solved by art". I feel this cheapens the concept of art, one of humankinds's most important endeavors, and undermines the apparent intent of the program.
Otherwise, it features the typical disregard for physical laws and the misguided "everyone's a winner" drivel we've all come to expect from insipid children's programming.
This show could've been special, could've actually enlightened children, might even have challenged them. It did not.
