Figurative art, alternatively known as figurativism, is a style in art forms -predominantly in paintings and sculptures. Space: The space is not clearly defined but there is a readily apparent foreground, middle, and background. Shapes: Edges are not indicated by outlines, but rather by a dramatic change of value (note fence). See also L.L. Fitzgerald (DR 15). Texture: Soft, because of the use of fine lines and gradual changes of value within objects.

We see spotted blue colour on a white background. The wingtips, beak, tail section and top of head are painted solid orange. A narrow red band encircles the neck. My husband, kids, and I traveled three hours up to Mount Vernon, WA to attend the Tulip Festival there ONLY to get our faces painted by the amazing Dutch Bihary. We’re face painters ourselves, so we know how renowned Dutch is for his unmatched skills in face and body painting. We introduced ourselves as face painters and fans of his work. He was very kind and spoke with us freely about the business and offered wonderful advice. Music can also be a successful intervention in promoting social skill development in children with autism (Finnigan & Starr, 2010; Wigram & Gold, 2009; and Duffy & Fuller, 2000). In fact, two studies were found that incorporate the idea of musically-adapted social skills songs to address behavioral or social skills. Brownell (2002) investigated the effect of musically adapted social stories on the behaviors of students with autism and found that the reading and singing conditions were significantly more effective in decreasing targeted behaviors than the control baseline condition. Pasiali (2004) explored the application of prescriptive therapeutic songs on promoting social skills in three children with autism. Using an ABAB reversal design, Pasiali found that there was some indication that prescriptive songs are a viable intervention for children with autism, even though the results were inconclusive. However, no studies were found that incorporate the use of a social skills song (i.e., musically adapted social story) in teaching initiation.

The 19th century also witnessed a number of philosophical developments which would have a significant effect on art. The growth of political thought, for instance, led Courbet and others to promote a socially conscious form of Realist painting – see also Realism to Impressionism ). Also, the publication of The Interpretation of Dreams (1899) by Sigmund Freud, popularized the notion of the “subconscious mind”, causing artists to explore Symbolism and later Surrealism. The new self-consciousness which Freud promoted, led to (or at least coincided with) the emergence of German Expressionism , as artists turned to expressing their subjective feelings and experiences. Smith also leaves a legacy as an influential educator, who taught at the original Vancouver School of Art and later at the University of British Columbia, and as an arts philanthropist. Ken James, who co-founded the Artists for Kids Foundation with Smith in 1989 as a way to encourage well known Canadian artists to donate prints for arts education, remembers him as the most generous person I have ever met”.

Review, 15 September 1987: 16. The field of Music Therapy Assisted Childbirth has been growing and developing during the last twenty years. A landmark study by Clark, McCorkle, and Williams (1981) was the first published treatment protocol for music therapists for working with labor and delivery patients. Their investigation was a preliminary study of the effectiveness of music for pain relief during labor and delivery. They found that music serves several functions in the natural childbirth process including attention focusing, distraction from pain, stimulating pleasure responses, focusing breathing, and as a conditioned stimulus for relaxation.
