ART can be defined as the expression of creativity and imagination through various techniques and media producing works to fulfill a variety of purposes. ARTISTS are people who create art. (in any art form)
Art involves: VISUAL ARTS MUSIC DANCE DRAMA These are known as the “the arts”, the ART FORMS or ART DISCIPLINES.
Ceremonial Artworks created to support worship ceremonies (rituals and celebrations). Artworks to express or communicate emotions, ideas, feelings, or to decorate objects. Artworks that tell stories, describe and illustrate experiences, communicate information, or document historical events. Artistic objects used in everyday life Artworks that promote ideas, philosophies, or products. Purposes of ART TheThe
MEDIA A technique involving the use of two or more artistic media that are combined in a single artwork.
It has a height, width, and actual depth Two-dimensional media Has a height and width and implied depth. These are “flat” art pieces such as drawings and paintings. Three-dimensional media Examples: Sculptures, Ceramics and Pottery.
TWO DIMENSIONAL Art Processes Have a height and width but no real depth. The depth is IMPLIED.
TWO DIMENSIONAL ART PROCESSES 1.DRAWING 2.PAINTING 3.PRINTMAKING 4.PHOTOGRAPHY 5.GRAPHIC DESIGN 6.MIXED MEDIA A complex operation involving a number of methods or techniques
IS OPAQUE (out of the bottle) OR TRANSLUCENT (water added) PAINTING MEDIA
Subject matter What is shown in the artwork. Art that contains shapes that simplify shapes of real objects to emphasize form instead of subject matter. Art that has no recognizable subject matter. The elements become the subject matter
What TYPE of subject matter? OBJECTIVEABSTRACTNON-OBJECTIVE NON-OBJECTIVE Jackson Polluck, Lavender Mist, 1950
What TYPE of subject matter? OBJECTIVEABSTRACTNON-OBJECTIVE ABSTRACT Pablo Picasso, The Three Musicians, 1921
What TYPE of subject matter? OBJECTIVEABSTRACTNON-OBJECTIVE OBJECTIVE Dorothea Lange, The Migrant Mother, 1936
3D art Three-dimensional works have a height, width, and ACTUAL depth.
Two types of sculptures: sculpture in the round relief sculpture SCULPTURE is the largest category of 3D work SCULPTURE refers to any way of creating 3D form from any available materials.
THREE DIMENSIONAL MEDIA Free standing sculpture that can be viewed from all sides. SCULPTURE IN THE ROUND What is a
THREE DIMENSIONAL MEDIA Forms are projected from a background. It’s classified as low relief or high relief according to the degree in which it its raised from the surface. SCULPTURE IN THE ROUND What is a Lorenzo Ghiberti's cast gilt-bronze "Gates of Paradise" at the Baptistery, Florence. Are relief sculptures meant to be viewed from all sides?
THREE DIMENSIONAL MEDIA Forms are projected from a background. It’s classified as low relief or high relief according to the degree in which it its raised from the surface. RELIEF SCULPTURE What is a Lorenzo Ghiberti's cast gilt-bronze "Gates of Paradise" at the Baptistery, Florence. Are relief sculptures meant to be viewed from all sides?
THREE DIMENSIONAL MEDIA LOW RELIEF Only SLIGHTLY raised from the surface.
THREE DIMENSIONAL MEDIA HIGH RELIEF Half or more of the modeled surface projects out from the background. Figures often are undercut to such a degree that you can grab hold of them with your hand.
GESTURE LINES Quick lines drawn to capture the form, likeness, or movement of a subject. Generally these are done as a warm up.
OUTLINE Only drawing the outer edges of an object. (NOT a trace)
CONTOUR LINES A pure line drawing. Using ONLY lines to draw with both inside and out.
BLIND CONTOUR LINES Typically you do not pick up your pencil while you draw. Why is this? A line drawing where you look at the object the entire time you draw and never look down at your paper.
Continuous LINE DRAWING A line drawing where you draw the entire subject without removing your drawing tool from the paper.
Form A 3-dimensional object having volume or thickness. It can be measured by height, width, and depth. Forms can be viewed from many angles. The 3D effect can be implied through the element of VALUE with the use of light and shading techniques. FOUR BASIC FORMS: Sphere Cone Cube Cylinder
PRIMARY HUES Pure & Basic Cannot be made by mixing other colors. RED, YELLOW, BLUE
SECONDARY HUES MIXING A PRIMARY + ADJACENT PRIMARY ORANGE= Red + Yellow GREEN= Blue + Yellow VIOLET= Red + Blue
Tertiary / Intermediate HUES A PRIMARY mixed with a SECONDARY red- violetred- orange Yellow-orange Yellow- green Blue- green Blue-violet
What is an ART CRITICISM? An ORGANIZED approach for studying a work of art. What’s the purpose of Art Criticism? To judge the artwork and gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the work.
DESCRIPTION What do I see? ART CRITICISM PROCESS ANALYSIS How is the work organized? INTERPRETATION What is the artist trying to communicate? JUDGMENT Is this a successful work of art?
This stage is like taking inventory. When you describe an artwork, you identify the things about the work that you can see ( the visual FACTS-- -BE SPECIFIC)! You should not include opinions, evaluations, or possible meanings. Imagine that you are describing the artwork to someone over the telephone who can’t see the artwork. This is a long and detailed section. DESCRIPTION
ANALYSIS In this step consider the subject matter as well as the most significant art elements that were used in the artwork and describe how the artist used the principles to organize the composition.
INTERPRETATION An interpretation seeks to explain the meaning of the work based on what you have learned so far about the artwork, what do you think the artist was trying to say? Use the information from your description and analysis to help you.
JUDGMENT After careful observation, analysis, and interpretation of an artwork, you are ready to make your own judgment. This is your personal evaluation based on the understandings of the work(s).
A.IMITATIONALISM: C. EMOTIONALISM B. FORMALISM: Focuses on a REALISTIC representation of the work. Composition(the arrangement and placement of the elements and principles) is the most important factor in judging the artwork. Concerned with the content of the work. It must arouse an emotional response in the viewer. Literal qualities Design qualities Expressive qualities THREE AESTHETIC THEORIES
How do the Principles of Design relate to the elements of art?
The elements are the building blocks of art. The Principals are the organizing ideas.
