In these days of budget cuts and limited resources, it’s often the case that fine arts classes are the first to be cut. Edwards, J. (1999). Considering the paradigmatic frame: Social science research approaches relevant to research in music therapy. The Arts in Psychotherapy, 26(2), 73-80. Even when Reinhardt was not literally making collages, he alluded to the practice of it in many of his drawings, applying color in overlapping, autonomous swaths like pieces of paper laid down on top of one another. In several elegant black-and-white drawings dating from 1936-39, the negative space is allowed to take on its own constructive presence, moving from the edges into the center, as in a gestalt-shifting optical illusion. (Here again we find Reinhardt’s insistent exhortation to stay awhile, looking, even in front of his smallest, quickest works.) Transparent forms seem to float in early gouaches from 1938-39 like colored tissue paper layered … Read the rest

Founded in 1979, Modernism has since presented more than 450 exhibitions, both historical and contemporary, in media ranging from painting to photography, sculpture to performance, by an international roster of artists. Art Nouveau is an international style of art, architecture and applied art, especially the decorative arts, known in different languages by different names: Jugendstil in German, Stile Liberty in Italian, Modernisme in Catalan, etc. In English it is also known as the Modern Style (not to be confused with Modernism and Modern architecture). The style was most popular between 1890 and 1910. It was a reaction against the academic art, eclecticism and historicism of 19th century architecture and decoration. It was often inspired by natural forms such as the sinuous curves of plants and flowers. Other characteristics of Art Nouveau were a sense of dynamism and movement, often given by asymmetry or “whiplash” curves, and the use of modern … Read the rest

Lyonel Charles Feininger or Lyonel Feininger, the German-American ‘Expressionist’ painter, printmaker, and caricaturist, was born on July 17, 1871. The Brooklyn Museum, New York. American Drawings from the Collection of the Brooklyn Museum. 23 August – 5 November 1972. Checklist. Spinal fusion (SF) for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is one of the most painful surgeries performed on adolescents. Music Therapy is an intervention shown to decrease postoperative pain intensity in adult samples. Currently at our hospital, a Music Therapist (MT) visits AIS patients on postoperative day 2 when the adolescent gets out of bed to a chair for the first time. As in many hospitals, resources are limited and the therapist can only provide one session per patient. We wanted to know if using other methods for delivering music (e.g., IPod, IPad, website) in addition to the usual individualized music therapy session would be desirable. Our first step was to … Read the rest

3D abstract art is a form of abstract art which uses the help of modern technology for the purpose of designing and drawing. You guys were great to work with. The other henna tattoo artist we used before was not very cooperative and rude to the guest. You guys were great. The kids loved you. We will definitely be using you more in the future. This exhibit focuses on these so-called contemporary relics and the obsessive nature of the artists who produce them. And what makes their nature obsessive? It is their intense curiosity, their methodical thinking, and their discoveries. Through the creative process, artists not only create cultural relics, but become contemporary anthropologists. Helen Wilson is a member of the Royal Glasgow Institute (RGI) and the Royal Scottish Society of Painters (RSW). Her paintings are in various private and public art collections including: Glasgow Art Gallery, Kelvingrove, Paisley Museum … Read the rest
