By 1916, the Dada movement was launched, filled with a nihilistic urge to subvert the value system which had caused Verdun and the Somme. Suddenly representational art seemed obscene. No imagery could compete with photographs of the war dead. Already artists had been turning more and more to non-objective art as a means of expression. Abstract art movements of the time included Cubism (1908-40), Vorticism (1914-15), Suprematism (1913-18), Constructivism (1914-32), De Stijl (1917-31), Neo-Plasticism (1918-26), Elementarism (1924-31), the Bauhaus (1919-33) and the later St Ives School. Even the few figurative movements were distinctly edgy, such as Metaphysical Painting (c.1914-20). But compare the early 20th century Classical Revival in modern art and Neoclassical Figure Paintings by Picasso (1906-30).

The word ensemble” comes from the French meaning together” and is a broad concept that encompasses groupings of various constituencies and sizes. Ensembles can be made up of singers alone, instruments alone, singers and instruments together, two performers or hundreds. Ensemble performance is part of virtually every musical tradition. Examples of large ensembles are the symphony orchestra, marching band, jazz band, West Indian steel pan orchestra, Indonesia gamelan, African drum ensembles, chorus, and gospel choir. In such large groups, performers are usually divided into sections, each with its particular material or function. So, for example, all the tenors in a chorus sing the same music, and all the alto saxes in a jazz big band play the same part. Usually a conductor or lead performer is responsible for keeping everyone together. Preissler, P., Kordovan, S., Ullrich, A., Bokemeyer, C., & Oechsle, K. (2016).

Speaking about her work Georgina says: ‘I love to capture the texture of the animal and I want it to look like you can touch it and engage with it. I want it to come alive and be a part of your daily living space. People should be aware of animals and be aware of the importance of nature’. Georgina started painting with everyday animals, like cows, hens, birds and horses and she has progressively expanded her interest to the ‘more exclusive’ animals, like eagles and deer and threatened species like tigers, the animals that people don’t always get to see or get up close to.
Students learn to listen, take turns, anticipate changes, and pick up on cues in ways they might not do outside of a music-therapy session,” says Hutchison. By 1905, Paul Klee was experimenting with different art techniques, including needle etching on different surfaces. “Portrait of My Father (1906)” and “Inventions” are the results of this experimentation. In 1905, the artist traveled to Paris and displayed his creations. In 1906, Paul decided to settle in Munich after marrying Lili Stumpf, a pianist from Bavaria. In 1910, in Bern, the artist held his first solo exhibition. The artist developed and enhanced his skills in ‘abstract Art,’ after joining an ‘Expressionist’ group, Dee Blaue Reiter group in 1911. In 1912, Klee exhibited his great works of art in the second “Blauer Reiter” exhibition. The Vanguard of the Collection of The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. Exh. cat.

Some musical styles focus on producing songs and pieces for a live performance, while others focus on producing a recording that mixes together sounds that were never played “live.” Even in essentially live styles such as rock, recording engineers often use the ability to edit, splice and mix to produce recordings that may be considered “better” than the actual live performance. For example, some singers record themselves singing a melody and then record multiple harmony parts using overdubbing, creating a sound that would be impossible to do live.

Maybe Dad’s old shirt will make the perfect smock for a small person to embrace their inner Leonardo. If you or your artists are doing more than one session at their paintings, invest in some good quality paint posts with lids, or keep a roll of plastic kitchen film near to hand to wrap up palettes or paint tubs. Make sure and put the lids back on your paints to maximise the life of your poster paint.
