The home in East Hampton, New York where Jackson Pollock lived with his wife Lee Krasner is now a museum. At this special place you can see the rooms where these artists lived. Most importantly, you can see the studio where Pollock and Krasner created their work. On the floor of the studio is the evidence of years and years of Pollock’s thrown paint. The floor looks just like one of Pollock’s paintings. Lines, Grids, Stains, Words – Minimal Art Drawings from the Collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Exh. cat.

There is no cure, and the care of a person with Alzheimer’s Disease can mean heavy financial and psychological burdens for family members. It is important that families facing this situation be aware that there are many sources of help and support. One important source of help can be music therapy. Research studies have shown that people with Alzheimer’s Disease respond to music at all stages of the disease. For example, in the early stages of the disease, the music therapist can help the person use existing music skills to constructively fill his or her leisure time. Music also can be paired with relaxation techniques to relieve symptoms of depression. During the middle stages of the disease, listening to and talking about familiar music can provide a source of comfort and reassurance. Theme-based music therapy groups can challenge cognitive skills, encourage social interaction and improve mood. Even people in the later stages of dementia can benefit from involvement with music. At this stage, music can encourage communication through eye contact, touch and changes in facial expression. Favorite recorded music also can be helpful in decreasing problem behaviors associated with agitation or aggression, and singing with or to a person can provide meaningful human contact.

Exemplified by the landscape paintings of Claude Monet (1840-1926), Impressionism focused on the almost impossible task of capturing fleeting moments of light and colour. Introduced non-naturalist colour schemes, and loose – often highly textured – brushwork. Close-up many Impressionist paintings were unrecognizable. Highly unpopular with the general public and the arts authorities, although highly rated by other modern artists, dealers and collectors. Eventually became the world’s most famous painting movement. See: Characteristics of Impressionist Painting (1870-1910). The main contribution of Impressionism to “modern art” was to legitimize the use of non-naturalist colours, thus paving the way for the wholly non-naturalist abstract art of the 20th century. She embraced modernism and Dada art, and she even created costumes and puppets for Dada performances. She collaborated with other artists like her husband Hans to produce shows, dances, writings, and fine art works. Today Alan King paintings are becoming increasingly sought after. And, his paintings are now in many private art collections across the world. I am pleased to be able to introduce you to one if our greatest artists Ruby.

The Wyeths instructed young Andrew in all the normal subjects, plus art education. Even at a young age, Andrew showed artistic talent. He began with sketching and working with water colors, and later, he learned to paint with egg tempera. Wyeth often painted rural landscapes and portraits of people he knew, both in Pennsylvania and in the family summer home in Maine. He is considered a regionalist in style. Great Hub. As usual you have put together an interesting collection of pictures and narrative. Thanks for taking time to make this interesting article. Thank you, Dianna! It’s not very often that face and body painters get acknowledged for their talents and so we REALLY appreciate you for taking the time to share your feelings and thoughts on your face painting. It was fun being a part of your event. Thanks again, Team ContoursFX.

Colour: Cool, muted. The largest area of colour is the blue water, above and below which are horizontal bands of white. Space: The viewer’s perspective is somewhat above the dock, looking out over the buildings and people. Oil paint was applied flatly, opaquely. There is a slight texture to the surface and edges are slightly blurred. Besset, Maurice, Thomas McEvilley and Thierry de Duve. La Couleur Seule, l’Expérience du Monochrome. Exh. cat.

The art program should also provide situations in which students have the opportunity to talk about art and the environment. Art instructors must balance structured guidance in skill development with an understanding of adolescent behaviour and an appreciation for the imagery preferred by this age group. Planning a variety of approaches to visual problems and considering methods of motivating students and instilling excitement into the art program will enhance the art experience for all. Above all, once the groundwork is laid, art teachers must trust in the most useful resource available to them the students themselves – a give them the opportunity to explore, to discover, and to share their knowledge. As a young boy, Duchamp aspired to become a conventional artist, and took classes in academic drawing. He worked in the styles of the time (Post Impressionism, Cubism, etc), but failed to achieve recognition, until 1917, when his notorious ‘Fountain’ changed the face of art. I started painting with my regular Faber Castell brushes and often now add different shapes and sizes as and when needed.

Camera Obscura also referred to as pinhole image, is the natural optical phenomenon that occurs when an image of a scene at the other side of a screen (or for instance a wall) is projected through a small hole in that screen as a reversed and inverted image (left to right and upside down) on a surface opposite to the opening. The surroundings of the projected image have to be relatively dark for the image to be clear, so many historical camera obscura experiments were performed in dark rooms.

Many ethnographic studies demonstrate that music is a participatory, community-based activity. Music is experienced by individuals in a range of social settings ranging from being alone to attending a large concert, forming a music community, which cannot be understood as a function of individual will or accident; it includes both commercial and non-commercial participants with a shared set of common values. Musical performances take different forms in different cultures and socioeconomic milieus. In Europe and North America, there is often a divide between what types of music are viewed as a high culture” and low culture.” High culture” types of music typically include Western art music such as Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and modern-era symphonies, concertos, and solo works, and are typically heard in formal concerts in concert halls and churches, with the audience sitting quietly in seats. Other types of music—including, but not limited to, jazz, blues, soul, and country—are often performed in bars, nightclubs, and theatres, where the audience may be able to drink, dance, and express themselves by cheering. Until the later 20th century, the division between high” and low” musical forms was widely accepted as a valid distinction that separated out better quality, more advanced art music” from the popular styles of music heard in bars and dance halls.

Klein, S.A., & Winkelstein, M.L. (1996). Enhancing pediatric health care with music. Journal of Pediatric Health Care, 10(2), 74-81. Since the emergence of the study of psychoacoustics in the 1930s, most lists of elements of music have related more to how we hear music than how we learn to play it or study it. C.E. Seashore, in his book Psychology of Music, 17 identified four “psychological attributes of sound”. These were: “pitch, loudness, time, and timbre” (p. 3). He did not call them the “elements of music” but referred to them as “elemental components” (p. 2). Nonetheless these elemental components link precisely with four of the most common musical elements: “Pitch” and “timbre” match exactly, “loudness” links with dynamics and “time” links with the time-based elements of rhythm, duration and tempo. This usage of the phrase “the elements of music” links more closely with Webster’s New 20th Century Dictionary definition of an element as: “a substance which cannot be divided into a simpler form by known methods” 18 and educational institutions’ lists of elements generally align with this definition as well. Dementia is already critical issues in the world when the society experiences super-aging. This situation requires establishment of rehabilitation methods for relieving symptoms of the patients. We have done research based on our assumption that most effective music therapy differs from culture, because music is dependent on cultural context. Here, we propose a hypothesis that the Japanese music gives better effects to Japanese patients than Classical music. Another really exciting artist experience, Jodah. Thanks so much for keeping us informed about some great artists who would otherwise be unknown to those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. I appreciate these history lessons. What a fabulous artist. Keep them coming. A University of Illinois scientist named Thomas Huang has analyzed the Mona Lisa, using facial-recognition software, to determine Mona’s likely gender. The scientist says that the software that he and his students developed indicates a 60-40 probability that the painting is of a female. Additionally, Huang says even if it is a man, it doesn’t match well with Leonardo’s sketch of himself.

Omaha, NE: Joslyn Art Museum, 1987. From the perspective of a musician, anything that is capable of producing sound is a potential instrument for musical exploitation. What we perceive as sound are vibrations (sound waves) traveling through a medium (usually air) that are captured by the ear and converted into electrochemical signals that are sent to the brain to be processed. Since sound is a wave, it has all of the properties attributed to any wave, and these attributes are the four elements that define any and all sounds. They are the frequency, amplitude, wave form and duration, or in musical terms, pitch, dynamic, timbre (tone color), and duration.
