Africa ~ Art ~ Art History ~ African ~ Art ~ 152 Slides

The author is a retired attorney but still producing artist.THERE ARE MANY ACTUAL SLIDES FROM THE SHOW POSTED ON THIS PAGE. These slides give you the best idea of whether the material will suit your needs.Africa is a huge continent with many diverse peoples and cultures. Accordingly, African art is not one type of art. It varies considerably among these peoples. The easiest way of dealing with this continent's art is to break it down into regions. There are still differences to be found within the regions but they aren’t as stark.Thus, there are four regions to consider: Western Africa, Eastern Africa, Central Africa and Southern Africa. Because Northern Africa is adjacent to the Middle East, it is Islamic. Thus its art is also Islamic. North African art is thus studied along with Islamic art and not along with African art. African art until very recently did not follow western traditions of painting, on an easel or otherwise. When it turned to painting, it used dyes, textiles, weaving and basketry. Africans also used more perishable materials, such as wood for sculptures.Masks and human figures were and are made by artists throughout these regions, often for religious ceremonies.

MANY OF THE ACTUAL SLIDES in the presentation are on this page. This will give you the best idea of what the product is like. EXCERPT:Paul Cézanne 1839 – 1906, was a French Post-Impressionist painter. His art became the foundation from which modern art was built in the 20th Century. He used repetitive, exploratory, small brushstrokes and planes of color. He built up complex paintings in layers. He minutely studied his subjects and repeated using the same subjects rather than seeking new subjects. He was constantly interested in pushing the boundaries of painting, not in finding new scenery to paint. Geometric shapes became more and more important to him as the years went on. Matisse and Picasso acknowledged their debt to him as they used his discoveries in inventing their Fauvism and Cubism. They would say, “Cézanne is the father of us all.”

Easter Egg Art and Maths lesson: spring themed decorated egg net!

Easter Egg Art and Maths lesson: spring themed decorated egg net!

A great one-off lesson to celebrate spring-time and get crafty at Easter. A full lesson powerpoint gives step-by-step instructions and makes fun links to art and maths. Students will love this activity which takes focus but generates fantastic easter-themed results.You will need to photocopy the template onto card for each student (you can use paper rather than card, though the resulting egg is a little more delicate). There are image sheets which can be handed out as inspiration for the drawn decorations at the end of the powerpoint. The only other materials required are biros, glue sticks, scissors and a couple of rolls of tape.If you are feeling generous you could bring in mini-eggs to put in the eggs that they create.The lessons can be done quickly (skip the decoration stage if necessary) in one hour, or can be stretched over two one hour sessions (with more attention to the drawing stage).Thank you to the brilliant paper engineer Rob Ives (robives.com) for the fantastic egg-box template.

Developing Literacy Through Art - Henri Rousseau

Developing Literacy Through Art - Henri Rousseau

Develop descriptive and creative writing by asking your students to look at the detailed work of Henri Rousseau. This resource includes a lesson plan, and within a presentation an introduction to Rousseau's work. The presentation then gives an example of how to fill in the worksheet. The worksheet is a metacognition task which asks students to look at the artwork, write what they can see and then what they are 'thinking', 'wondering' or 'feeling'. A selection of three Rousseau artworks are also within the PowerPoint ready to print off. A great resource to get your students creatively writing. To make it clear, this is not a presentation on Rousseau, I'm just using a PowerPoint to hold the activities. The PowerPoint is 6 slides long. Slide 1: Front Page Slide 2: Introduction to Rousseau with facts. Slide 3: A Rousseau artwork to use with the example worksheet to demonstrate what you would like students to do. Slides 4 - 7 Artworks to print off.

Many actual slides are shown on this page.EXCERPTS:SYMBOLISM~turn of the century (19-20th) European movement in literature, theatre, music and painting. ~Prime years were 1880-1910 with overlap on both poles.~akin to the Pre-Raphaelites, Romantics and Aesthetics. ~a reaction against naturalism and realism. ~Symbolists explored their imagination, dreams, and unconscious selves.~were drawn to metaphoric imagery, suggestive forms and symbolic meaning.~intellectual expressionism using messages and esoteric references. ~narrative content dominated.Odilon Redon : "I painted an object down to the smallest accidents of its visual appearance; but the day left me sad and with an unsatiated thirst. The next day I let the other source run, that of imagination, through the recollection of the forms, and I was then reassured and appeased.”Edvard Munch: most well-known work is "The Scream" which was conceived thusly: ”I was walking down the road with 2 friends when the sun set; suddenly, the sky turned as red as blood. I stopped and leaned against the fence, feeling unspeakably tired. Tongues of fire and blood stretched over the bluish black fjord. My friends went on walking, while I lagged behind, shivering with fear. Then I heard the enormous, infinite scream of nature."Hugo Simberg: "The Wounded Angel" is his most famous painting and is extremely well known in his native Finland. The Finnish band Nightwish’s 2007 music video, "Amaranth", is based on "The Wounded Angel".
