After studying each slide individually, compare them in terms of colour and shape. Experimentation To learn about arranging shape and colour in stencil printing, try the following: a) Make interesting prints by using a single found stencil and printing it in various positions and colours. b) Make a simple stencil using bold shapes and then printing both the positive and negative images as in part a).

Last to Know, from the Denver Art Museum’s exhibition Embrace! features the seemingly straightforward, yet disconcerting, motif of plunging kitchen knives, cleavers and a single pair of tweezers on the sloping wall of the Newman Overlook in the Frederic C. Hamilton Building. An undercurrent of vulnerability and violence belies the decorative appeal and seeming simplicity of the arrangement. Brannon describes himself as a fully committed believer in Freud,” and his themes spotlight the insecurities and misplaced desires that thwart us all. His blatant imitation of advertising models also playfully blurs the lines between art, graphic design, and promotional advertising. Williams, K., Teggelove, K., & Day, T. (2014).

Jack Vettriano for instance, has made a fortune from vast print sales and royalties. (Even a tiny fraction of such success would mean a decent income). Success in the print market can dramatically magnify an artists earning potential. Creating a number of related income streams is how most successful artists manage to survive and eventually thrive. The effect of music, however, might not be dependent on a specific piece. According to scientists, music that is personally liked by the subjects turns out to enhance EEG power spectra globally and also across bandwidths. The effect is best seen in beta and alpha frequencies in the right frontal and temporal regions. Disliked music, musical improvisations, or white noise (a random signal having equal intensity at different frequencies) do not seem to have the same impact, although white noise also produces similar responses on the left hemisphere. A study investigating traditional Indonesian music found that it significantly increases beta power activity, averaged over the posterior two thirds of the scalp. In this case, however, no effect on alpha waves was seen. Also, comparing the periods of silence and music, listening to music recruited new areas of the brain into the active processes, such as the posterior part of the precuneus, which also had an increase in cerebral blood flow. According to the authors, this effect may reflect the impact of music on cognitive processes, such as music-evoked memory recall or visual imagery.
Another domain that has been implicated in the far-transfer effects of musical training is mathematical performance. A meta-analysis of 6 studies examining this relationship found that only 2 studies reported a positive effect (Vaughn 2000). Furthermore, a recent cross-sectional study did not find superior mathematical abilities in musically trained children (Forgeard and others 2008). Thus, there appears to be little evidence demonstrating a transfer of skills between music and mathematics. Gould, Claudia and Ann Bremner. Revolution: Art of the Sixties from Warhol to Beuys.

Promising pharmacological interventions are available for the treatment of dementias, but have a restricted ability to treat many of its features. Non-pharmacological treatments and research into this dimension is relatively ignored. Common approach in dementia treatment is to limit the extent and rate of progression of the pathological processes and slow down the cognitive decline. Music therapy is one of the novel approaches proposed for achieving such targets. Greatest advantage of music therapy is that it creates an alternate mode of communication to patients who have limited ability to speak and understand language. Spretnak builds her argument around broadly recognized artists. The exhibitions cited above, by contrast, focus on figures who have been more marginal to art history. As a result, there has been some debate about their legitimacy as artists.
Music is present in every culture, but the degree to which it is shaped by biology remains debated. One widely discussed phenomenon is that some combinations of notes are perceived by Westerners as pleasant, or consonant, whereas others are perceived as unpleasant, or dissonant. The contrast between consonance and dissonance is central to Western music, and its origins have fascinated scholars since the ancient Greeks. Aesthetic responses to consonance are commonly assumed by scientists to have biological roots, and thus to be universally present in humans. Ethnomusicologists and composers, in contrast, have argued that consonance is a creation of Western musical culture. The issue has remained unresolved, partly because little is known about the extent of cross-cultural variation in consonance preferences. Here authors report experiments with the Tsimane’—a native Amazonian society with minimal exposure to Western culture—and comparison populations in Bolivia and the United States that varied in exposure to Western music. Participants rated the pleasantness of sounds. Despite exhibiting Western-like discrimination abilities and Western-like aesthetic responses to familiar sounds and acoustic roughness, the Tsimane’ rated consonant and dissonant chords and vocal harmonies as equally pleasant. By contrast, Bolivian city- and town-dwellers exhibited significant preferences for consonance, albeit to a lesser degree than US residents. The results indicate that consonance preferences can be absent in cultures sufficiently isolated from Western music, and are thus unlikely to reflect innate biases or exposure to harmonic natural sounds. The observed variation in preferences is presumably determined by exposure to musical harmony, suggesting that culture has a dominant role in shaping aesthetic responses to music. One man’s music really is another man’s noise, says this new study from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The researchers found that only cultures previously exposed to Western music formed opinions on consonance and dissonance-an element of music theory that establishes consonant chords as more aurally pleasing than dissonant chords. The findings, published in Nature, may end longstanding arguments over whether or not musical preference is biological. June 10-14. Ages 4-5.

Sometimes, live performances incorporate prerecorded sounds. For example, a disc jockey uses disc records for scratching , and some 20th-century works have a solo for an instrument or voice that is performed along with music that is prerecorded onto a tape. Some pop bands use recorded backing tracks Computers and many keyboards can be programmed to produce and play Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) music. Audiences can also become performers by participating in karaoke , an activity of Japanese origin centered on a device that plays voice-eliminated versions of well-known songs. Most karaoke machines also have video screens that show lyrics to songs being performed; performers can follow the lyrics as they sing over the instrumental tracks. Like many Artists Jock MacInnes spent his early career teaching Art – in his case at the Glasgow School of Art. Throughout his time teaching Jock continued with his own painting regularly exhibiting and winning art Awards and Scholarships. These included: the Paisley Art Institute, Drawing competition; the Cargill Award, Royal Glasgow Institute; and the Colquhoun Memorial Painting Competition. It is unproductive to arrange forums to discuss such emotional issues with people when the diseased monetary system is bringing about merciless global cybernetic chaos. People all over the world are being terrorized by governments when they protest that they have no employment opportunities to obtain such things as food, water, housing, education and medical care. The oppressed voting people of the world are realizing that the traditional illusory words of tribal wisdom are meaningless. When they understand that the Art of tribal war is now obsolete then Humanity can begin to face up to its current challenges, particularly climate change. As Norbert Wiener, the inventor of the predominate cybernetic warfare has stated, Plato’s ethical cybernetic mathematics exists to develop technologies to master such forces of nature.

Worcester, MA: Worcester Art Museum, 1991. Although many different styles are encompassed by the term, there are certain underlying principles that define modernist art: A rejection of history and conservative values (such as realistic depiction of subjects); innovation and experimentation with form (the shapes, colours and lines that make up the work) with a tendency to abstraction; and an emphasis on materials, techniques and processes. Modernism has also been driven by various social and political agendas. These were often utopian, and modernism was in general associated with ideal visions of human life and society and a belief in progress.
In contrast, this work by Andy Warhol definitely is of something – but it’s not exactly something you would expect. Andy Warhol took a piece of design that the American people saw every day, and turned it into gallery-worthy art. In doing so, he questioned ideas of value attached to art – is this Campbell’s soup tin really less worthy of attention than a Leonardo? To emphasise his point, Warhol first displayed the works lined up on shelves in a gallery space, mimicking how they would be stacked in a grocery store. Carmean, Jr., E. A.

In the 12th century Hagia Sophia had a staff of deacons and clergy of 500. In the early part of the century Alexis Comnenus as a cost saving effort had reduced the paid clergy from 700. They were highly trained in the Greek language and the teaching of theology, which involved study of the gospels and preaching. They were also responsible for the celebration of the liturgy and broadcasting news of the Imperial court and current events in the city and around the world. When the Emperor was on a military campaign he would send the official Imperial newsletter to the clergy and deacons to be read from the ambo in the center of the church. The clergy was very concerned with the correct form and pronunciation of Greek and was responsible for setting the official form of Greek throughout the empire. When Alexis I Comnenus reduced the paid clergy of Hagia Sophia this pushed out the excess staff out to provincial churches where they raised the educational level of the local schools. Here they taught reading and writing. In the local schools students learned large parts of the Bible by heart. Everyone learned the Creed by heart at a young age. The clergy of Hagia Sophia was also responsible to teach Byzantine Christian theology and they set the curricula that was used throughout the rest of the empire. Goossen, E. C.
