Figurative art, alternatively known as figurativism, is a style in art forms -predominantly in paintings and sculptures. Deep Canvas is a 3D painting and rendering technique that allows artists to produce CGI background that looks like a traditional painting. The software keeps track of brushstrokes applied in 3D space. Provides comfort. Music therapy has also been used to help enhance communication, coping, and expression of feelings such as fear, loneliness, and anger in patients who have a serious illness, and who are in end-of-life care.

Over the last decade, Uttech’s enchanted forests have become home and stage to animal migration, a natural phenomenon rooted in eons of animal behavior and evolution. Part fantasy, part natural science, these migration paintings are compelling not only for their settings but for the hundreds of species of animals flying, swarming, and bolting across his paintings on a timeless mission and in a perpetual state of reenactment. Uttech does not identify as an environmental artist, but his treatment of the migration subject has become synonymous with encroaching dangers that finds resonance in contemporary issues of wildlife preservation. Uttech is in many ways most comfortable in the north woods or the forests that surround his forty-acre farm in Saukville, Wisconsin, which is also home to his converted barn-studio.

Good question. But my research leads me to understand that according to various gallery owners, the consensus seems to be that larger size paintings will normally tend to sell better than small ones. It is also the case that it’s easier to ask decent money for a big painting, – if not an outrageous price, – due to the extra perceived value, and actual impact of a larger work. Craft is a pastime or a profession that requires particular skills and knowledge of skilled work. In a historical sense, particularly as pertinent to the Middle Ages and earlier, the term is usually applied to people occupied in small-scale production of goods, or their maintenance. Conclusions: Music therapy can immediately decrease levels of fatigue for patients undergoing bone marrow transplants. A reduction in fatigue may temporarily assist a more active lifestyle that can facilitate recovery and quality of life. Limitations, implications for clinical practice, and suggestions for future research are provided. Exploration time was almost equally divided between ontask playing (M=53.83, SD =22.15) and watching (M =41.74, SD =21.15). Only 2.41% of the intervals were offtask. The majority of participants (N=26) verbalized at least one solution. Participants’ verbalization frequency ranged from 0 (N=5) to 8 (N=1) (M = 2.35). Participants responded positively (M= 5.97, SD =98) to the question, “Did you enjoy playing with the KORG?” and less positively (M= 5.13, SD = 1.33) to the comparison question “Do you enjoy experimenting with electronic devices in general?” The feasibility question “Based on your experience today, do you think adolescent and adult hospital patients would enjoy playing with the KORG?” received the most positive response (M=6.10, SD =.99). Statistical comparisons of music and nonmusic majors’ data revealed no significant differences. Loran (1905-1999) was a California abstract expressionist, painter, printmaker, author and teacher. “Erle Loran (1905-1999): A Modern Artist of the American West” will feature a retrospective of more than 60 works in diverse media, including oil paintings, watercolor, gouache, mixed media drawings and charcoal studies.

The study of composition has traditionally been dominated by examination of methods and practice of Western classical music, but the definition of composition is broad enough to include the creation of popular music and traditional music songs and instrumental pieces as well as spontaneously improvised works like those of free jazz performers and African percussionists such as Ewe drummers. Although in the 2000s, composition is considered to consist of the manipulation of each aspect of music (harmony, melody, form, rhythm, and timbre), composition mainly consists in two things only. The first is the ordering and disposing of several sounds…in such a manner that their succession pleases the ear. This is what the Ancients called melody. The second is the rendering audible of two or more simultaneous sounds in such a manner that their combination is pleasant. This is what we call harmony, and it alone merits the name of composition. In 2009, VSA (national office in Washington, DC) invited artists from around the world to paint, draw, or collage the meanings, impressions and images associated with the word disability.” What is Disability is a dramatic display of many of the hundreds of postcards received. The exhibition is an exploration of disability from multiple points of view—cultural, geographic, personal—displayed as works of individual expression. The exhibition opened in June 2010, at the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in conjunction with the 2010 International VSA Festival.

Music therapy is an interpersonal process in which a trained therapist uses music and all of its facets—physical, emotional, mental, social, aesthetic, and spiritual—to help clients to improve or maintain their health. In some instances, the client’s needs are addressed directly through music; in others they are addressed through the relationships that develop between the client and therapist. Music therapy is used with individuals of all ages and with a variety of conditions, including: psychiatric disorders, medical problems, physical disabilities, sensory impairments, developmental disabilities, substance abuse issues, communication disorders, interpersonal problems, and aging. It is also used to improve learning, build self-esteem, reduce stress, support physical exercise , and facilitate a host of other health-related activities. Music therapists may encourage clients to sing, play instruments, create songs, or do other musical activities. Melhuish, R., Beuzeboc, C., & Guzmán, A. (2015).

The shapes often contain some type of pattern and there is a tremendous variety among the patterns. Identify as many as you can. There are many colours in the painting. Many of them are primary colours. The painting is therefore quite intense. Black has been used all over the surface and helps unify the picture. Although abstract art marked a decisive break from prior artistic traditions, the movement can also be seen as the inevitable and logical result of the work and thinking of previous artists. At the start of the century the Fauvist movement explored the importance of colour, whilst the Cubists started to deconstruct shapes and play with geometry. In a similar way, German Expressionism, which was born in 1905, encouraged the idea that independent emotions, detached from reality, should be the focus of an artist’s work. Thanks to abstraction, modern art has been able to excel and reach its very peak. By no longer focusing on physical subjects, artists are no longer limited to representing recognisable reality. Abstract art has a universal language to share and convey. Since its beginnings, abstraction has been significantly shared across the world and has contributed a great deal to contemporary thinking today.

But by the end of the 19th century many Western artists felt a need to create a new kind of art that reflected the fundamental changes taking place in technology, science and philosophy. Maurice Tuchman, the exhibition curator, threw down the gauntlet in the first line of his catalogue essay. He declared, Abstract art remains misunderstood by the majority of the viewing public.” In a sprawling exhibition of works by more than 100 artists, he presented both canonical figures and little known practitioners, early modernist masters and contemporary artists, in each case revealing deep connections to spiritual, utopian, or metaphysical beliefs.
