Arte Episode 2 Discussion:
On these first two episodes it left clear the scenario on which Arte must face off if she wants to succeed in being recognized as an artist. Which set the plot a challenge of not making the element of sexual discrimination tiresome nor tedious during it’s runnig. A challenge which will be interesting to see since the set-up of the premise make it as not only the main but also recurrent obstacle.
In the first episode Arte starts her journey by searching to be accepted as an apprentice in a workshop after her mother set her drawings on fire and demanded her to focus in becoming a good woman so she can get married with a good man. After many failed attempts an artist named Leo takes her as an apprentice due finding on her his younger self when he was aiming to be an artist as well.
On the second episode, Arte now must get used to live as an apprentice and thus do the labor of such despite being female. Here Angelo, another apprentice from another workshop, is introduced to the story who is amazed at Arte doing stuff that was meant to be only done by males while she fights to overcome the perception of what a woman should be in her environment in order to meet the task she is ordered to do.
