Presentation Transcript
  • Painting is the art that has most to do with revealing the visual appearance of objects and events.
  • The most basic elements of painting are line, shape, light, texture, and color.
  • The eye is the chief sense organ involved in our participation with painting…
  • Representational paintings furnishes the world with definite objects and events.
  • Abstract paintings offers us a complete rest from practical concerns.
  • Along with painting and architecture is classified as one of the visual arts.
  • It engages our senses differently than painting does; because it occupies space as a three-dimensional mass.
  • Sunken-Relief Sculpture: carving cut grooves of various depths into the surface plane of the stone.
  • Surface-Relief; Low-Relief; High-Relief; etc.
  • Is the creative conservation of space.
  • Space is the material of the architect.
  • Four necessities of architecture:
  • Technical requirement – buildings must stand (and withstand).
  • Functional requirements – they must stand in such a way that they reveal their function or use.
  • Spatial requirements – relationships with surrounding buildings.
  • Content – subject matter = relevant values of society.
  • Is an art whose medium is language used to affect the imagination.
  • Fiction writers and poets share many of the techniques of literature because their effects depend on universal language art.
  • Language has denotation: a literal level where words mean what they obviously say, and connotation; a subtler level at which words mean more than they obviously say.
  • Is a species of literature whose basic medium is spoken language.
  • It can be read, somewhat like a poem or a novel.
  • The word “drama” comes from the Greek word meaning “act.”
  • Drama is spoken language acted, to be produced for public exhibition, usually upon a stage.
  • Is one of the most powerful of the arts partly because sounds – more than any other sensory stimulus – create in us involuntary reactions, pleasant or unpleasant.
  • There is no escaping the effects of music except by turning off the source.
  • It can be experienced in two ways: “hearing” or “listening.”
  • Moving bodies shaping space.
  • At its most basic level, the subject matter of dance is abstract motion.
  • In abstract dance the center of interest is upon visual patterns.
  • It is rhythmic, unfolding in time, and thus has common ground with music.
  • Most is accompanied by music.
  • When we evaluate a film, all of these elements come into play:
  • Cinematography, the care with which the film was photographed,
  • Structure, the completeness and excellence of the script or story line,
  • Acting and character development,
  • Editing of separate shots
  • Music, the way sound evokes emotion or establishes mood.
  • When it became widely available in the 1940’s and 1950’s the images printed on paper were in black-and-white or sepia (brown-and-white).
  • The success of photography in reproducing realistic scenes and people had an instant impact on painting.
