AttributeError: module 'json' has no attribute 'load'

import json

with open('example_1.json') as artfile:
    art = json.load(artfile)

Any idea why this is giving me the no attribute 'load' message?

Did you by any chance named your workspace file json.py?

I think you need to use ( json.loads) or use the full file path. Good luck:)
