18 Art in the digital revolution In the digital age the distinction between art and everyday life is further diminished through sites such as You Tube and Flicker, where anyone can post his own images Thus the Internet is helping to democratize art

19 Relationship -Art and Language Art stimulates visual meaning, which stimulates the ability of description and provokes comment Promotes students´imagination Provides unforgettable experience transferred into foreign language Awakes emotions and feelings which consequently enthuse learners to participate in discussion
