Galerie Blue Square is dedicated to celebrating the talents of artists inspired by the principles and philosophies of the Russian avant-garde. 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=""

Jackson Pollock, a great American painter of the 20th century, established a distinct way of painting that produced a major impact on the world of art. Oldfield, A., & Flower, C. (Eds.). (2008). Music Therapy with Children and their Families. London: Jessica Kingsley. The artist used the side of the pencil tip to apply tone broadly and quickly. She worked quickly and loosely, producing a sense of the whole animal rather than a detailed drawing. She concerned herself with the large shapes. She used the point of the pencil to emphasize some parts. All her lines are gentle and curving. She also incorporated the rough texture of the paper surface. There are white parts remaining (even in the toned areas) that keep the drawing light, fresh, and sparkling. Aasgard, T. (2001).

Thomas Nozkowski: New Paintings, Max Protetch Gallery, New York, November 8-December 20, 2003. Bob, your observation is actually very astute. McCubbin’s painting of the bush are unique in the fact that he doesn’t just paint a landscape showing the horizon and various features. He seems to paint a story “within” the bush. It surrounds his subjects and makes the viewer feel like they are part of it. I am glad these paintings helped you relive childhood memories. Thanks for reading. Thompson, G., & McFerran, K.S.

Robert Motherwell was a young American ‘Abstract Expressionist’ painter, printer, collage maker, and author. The exterior edges show the wooden structure which underlies the quillwork. A variety of traditional design motifs including star patterns, circles, moose, flora, fauna, and waves cover the surface. The overall design is symmetrical. Colours are generally cool except for a few areas of earth tones. Forms: The repeated geometric forms are identical in size, shape, colour, and texture. The forms are dramatized by light which falls on them. Movement: The non-stable appearance of the forms, as if they were caught in a moment of incomplete action, creates tension.

After visiting a Scott show in London in 1953, James Johnson Sweeney, then director of the Guggenheim, wrote to the gallerist Martha Jackson: “At last England has a painter.” That same year Scott became one of the first British artists to visit New York, where Martha Jackson introduced him to Rothko, De Kooning, Kline, and Pollock. The following year, Scott, with Hepworth and Bacon, took part in a three-person show at the MJ Gallery going on to exhibit with Jackson regularly through the next decade. … Read the rest

Listening to music can also help people with Alzheimer’s recall seemingly lost memories and even help maintain some mental abilities. Jackson Pollock was born in Cody, Wyoming in nineteen twelve. He grew up in the states of Arizona and California. Pollock later said that the wide-open land of these western areas greatly influenced his expansive artwork. In nineteen thirty he moved east to New York City where he studied at the Art Students League. There, Pollock spent a few years studying with the artist Thomas Hart Benton who painted images of every day American life. Pollock’s early works are similar to his teacher’s kind of painting. However, Pollock slowly left this traditional art education behind. de Chassey, Éric. Kelly et Matisse – Une Filiation Inavouée.” Les Cahiers du Musée National d’Art Moderne … Read the rest

American contemporary artist, Jasper Johns, Jr., was born on May 15, 1930, in Augusta, Georgia. Through media work, art provides the opportunity for physical as well as mental activity. Studio work provides relief from academic pursuits in art and in other subject areas. Since the creation of art works depend upon the manipulation of materials, the importance of developing specific art skills cannot be overstressed. It is during the period of early adolescence that students must develop studio competence. If adolescent students cannot accomplish what they perceive to be good art, they usually become discouraged and abandon art making. Feen-Calligan, H., & Matthews, W.K. (2016).
