When we look at outside space at home or school, we rearrange or ornament the features that we find ordinarily in these spaces. This is done with colour alone or with scenes of our small or wider community painted or carved on them. Graffiti is a … Read the rest

In these days of budget cuts and limited resources, it’s often the case that fine arts classes are the first to be cut. Further data were collected in order to determine children’s preferences for the musical selections. Children were asked to circle an icon representing whether they liked the piece, disliked the piece, or thought it was ok. Frequencies of responses were categorized by piece. Results of a two way chi square test indicate there was a significant difference among children’s preferences across pieces, Χ2 (372,10) = 54.35, p <001. the="" happy="" tonal="" piece="" received=""

Body adornment has always included body painting, tattooing, and other kinds of body art, this has been the case over the ages; but in recent times, body art has become more varied and endlessly creative.

Early landmarks included being the first gallery to show Andy Warhol in the Bay Area (1982), and holding the first exhibition on the West Coast (in a gallery or museum) of the Russian Avant-Garde 1910-1930 (1980, 17 more retrospectives have since been mounted). The PhD, which is required for students who want to work as university professors in musicology, music history, or music theory, takes three to five years of study after the master’s degree, during which time the student will complete advanced courses and undertake … Read the rest

In the not-so-recent past, when someone wanted to buy art, they had to walk into a gallery in a major city. Although Hans Hofmann never joined the American Abstract Artists, he encouraged its membership and sent a letter of support when the organization was formally established. Yet, through his students, who represented not only a significant number of the membership, but an important counterbalance to the geometric formalists, Hofmann’s influence within the group was remarkable. Sunder points out that the art market is no longer about the gallery, but also includes publications, funding and residencies—a market for not getting paid”—and that she is present in some form within this”.

Piet Mondrian (born March 7, 1872) was a Dutch painter who played a pioneering role in bringing art forms, such as ‘Neo-Plasticism’ and ‘Cubism,’ into limelight. The rules of ‘Contemporary Arts’ could never trap him. During the 1920s, Laurens’ style evolved. He abandoned the sharp geometric shapes of ‘Cubism’ and adapted a less ‘Abstract’ and more sensuous ‘Curvilinear’ style to give a decorative effect. Critics often described Laurens’ works as innovative and uninhibited. His works spanned from ‘Collage Making,’ to ‘Poster Painting,’ to ‘Engraving,’ and ‘Theater Designing.’ “Bunch of Grapes” (1922), “Seated Woman” (1930), “Oceanid” (1933), “The Farewell” (1941), “Water Sprites” (1933), “Bathers” (1931), and “Autumn” (1948), are a few examples of the exceptional works he did in his lifetime. In 1938, he exhibited with Braque and Picasso, in the key Scandinavian cities. Knight, Christopher. The Barry Lowen Collection. Exh. cat. Los Angeles: Museum of Contemporary Art, 1986.
