Pointillism is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. Rabinowitch, T., Cross, I., & Burnard, P. (2013). Long-term musical group interaction has a positive influence on empathy in children. Psychology of Music, 41(4), 484-498. Design a container that is functional – reusable where the surface decoration is influenced by function. This might be a container for a car which serves as an activity centre for children; a container for grocery shopping with compartments for specific items; a wastepaper basket of paper or old newspapers to create a container for newspapers.

Dodd’s painting practice first concretised during this period. Influenced by principles of observed natural light and repeated looking that characterise the work of artists such as Edward Hopper and Paul Cézanne, Dodd quickly adopted a subdued palette of pale greens, rusty oranges, rich creams and browns, and a shorthand of synoptic brushstrokes and economical paint applications with which to impart her vision.

It took the more abstract work of the desert artists to open up to the modern world about the time-honoured values and knowledge contained within Indigenous cultures. Now, these paintings are shown alongside modern western art in contemporary art galleries and homes of art lovers around the world. The Collector as Patron in the Twentieth Century. Exh. cat.

Though one could say that the human voice was the first instrument, most cultures have developed other distinctive ways of creating musical sound, from something as simple as two sticks struck together to the most complex pipe organ or synthesizer. Learning about musical instruments can teach you much about a culture’s history and aesthetics. A musical instrument is an instrument created or adapted to make musical sounds. In principle, any object that produces sound can be considered a musical instrument—it is through purpose that the object becomes a musical instrument. The history of musical instruments dates to the beginnings of human culture. Early musical instruments may have been used for ritual, such as a trumpet to signal success on the hunt, or a drum in a religious ceremony. Cultures eventually developed composition and performance of melodies for entertainment. Musical instruments evolved in step with changing applications. Legg, Alicia.

There’s a lot of evidence,” Gaab says, that if you play a musical instrument, especially if you start early in life, that you have better reading skills, better math skills, etc.

KIKUO SAITO (1939-2016) had two métiers, as an abstract painter and as a creator of experimental theater performances. These co-existed in a state of fruitful tension for much of his life, representing two aspects of his being, the public and the private, the active and the reflective. These polarities can also be seen clearly in his paintings, which unite the contemplative coolness of Color Field with the energetic gestures of Abstract Expressionism. Establishing himself in the New York art world in the late ’60s and early ’70s, Saito bucked the Pop and Minimalist trends to chart his own course, moving back and forth between the theater and the studio. I’ve included the above painting even though it was not actually by an official war artist. George Luks was an American artist, a member of the Ashcan school of art, and this painting represents the women and families at home waiting for news of their men-folk who are away at war. In those days it was common to knit socks by hand, and here we see the wives, mothers and sisters of the soldiers, busily producing warm socks for their loved ones, many miles away. The snowy scene reminds us of the tough conditions the men-folk are likely to be enduring, and this is echoed in the next painting, shown below. Oceanic colours move throughout these undulating, soft-flowing, shell-shaped forms. There are combinations of cool and warm pastel colours. Each object is horizontally aligned. The presentation of six of them, one above the other, creates a strong vertical formation. These container like forms have sensuous outer shells which enclose delicate fragile interiors. They each have an organic shape which differs slightly from all the others. Some loose weaving, resembling nets, emerges from the enclosed areas. Each piece is sensitively proportioned.

Listening to ‘relaxing’ music (generally considered to have slow tempo, low pitch, and no lyrics) has been shown to reduce stress and anxiety in healthy people and in people undergoing medical procedures (e.g., surgery, dental, colonoscopy). Eugène Henri Paul Gauguin was a French post-Impressionist artist. Well-known for his experimental use of colour, Gauguin produced a number of striking paintings of equine subjects. Towards the end of his life he spent ten years in French Polynesia, and the paintings produced at that time are amongst his best-known works. Many include images of the islanders horses, and these are beautifully rendered in non-naturalistic colours. Krout, R.E. (2015). Evaluating Electronic Music Technology Resources for Music Therapy.

A repeated square supports a facial image which moves from an asymmetrical arrangement in the first block through to an almost symmetrical arrangement in the second block. The various blotches of colour against the black background diminish in number as the size of the face increases. The image on fabric covers uniform sized wooden blocks. Warm red colours which border on cool purple contrast vividly with the black background. Organic shapes of these colours float in the space around the head changing shape and size from block to block. Movement is sensed as the viewer zooms in on the face as its size increases.

Catalogue with texts by George Burton Cumming and John I. H. Baur. McCubbin is one of the only Australian artists I could have named before reading this hub. I quite like The Pioneer triptych. Had never seen most of the rest before. Bush Idyll is well named. It looks more Romantic in the capital R sense. Do see the appeal but much prefer what looks to be his middle period. I like the little snapshots, the little flies in amber, conveying a thousand words each. There’s a ton of art for you to see inside of the Art Institute, the Museum of Contemporary Art and more of the best museums in Chicago , but there’s no need to end your journey through the city’s creative landscape there. Neighborhoods like Hyde Park and Wicker Park host thriving communities of art galleries, where you can see paintings, sculptures, photographs and interactive works by emerging and established artists. You’ll find galleries devoted to video-game art, contemporary paintings, performance art and archives of antiquated media—you just have to know where to look. Use our guide to Chicago’s best art galleries to find an opening and experience some bold and imaginative works. For thousands of years people have sung, performed, and enjoyed music. World travelers and social scientists have consistently observed that all of the people in the world have some type of music, and all people recognize music when they hear it, even if they have different names and categories for what they hear. While the music of other cultures will sound different and have different meanings and emotions associated with it, every culture makes it. Twelve groups were scheduled based on students’ appointment selections. Five groups had 2 players and 7 had 3 players. Each group met in a soundproof room containing a video camera, three chairs, and a circular table. On the table were 2 Sony mini speakers, a KORG Kaossilator Pro synthesizer (an 8.5 x 8.5 in panel with a 3 x 4 in touchpad)- and a small sign, “Press the touchpad lightly with your finger.” After reading an explanation of the study and signing permission forms, participants began exploring the device. Each group began with the same sound generated (P168) and was recorded for 10 minutes. Participants then completed a questionnaire requesting demographic information, perceptions of the experience, and ideas for hospital applications.
