Here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on the concept of art for art’s sake. This is a half-page worksheet with a three-sentence reading and three comprehension questions. In its brevity, this document does a fine job of introducing the concept of art for its own sake–that art needs no economic, political, or social justification.
