06/19/2001 - Updated 12:05 PM ET Using tech to teach art appreciation By Jinny Gudmundsen, Gannett News Service If a quick trip to Paris to visit the Louvre isn't on your calendar this summer, don't despair. You can still expose your children to world-class art because the masterpieces in the Louvre's collection are just a mouse click away with a new DVD-ROM about the Louvre. What's more, the Internet provides many fun ways to explore famous artworks. Let's take a look. 'The Louvre: The Virtual Visit' This visually spectacular DVD-ROM is the result of the work of more than 100 professionals including curators and a film crew that spent several months filming the Louvre collections. The DVD showcases 1,000 pieces of art from the Louvre collections. Visitors have four choices of navigation: This software displays full-screen images of individual pieces of artwork. Visitors have the option of using the "magnifier" to view it even closer. There is a biography of the artist, and the ability to see the piece in scale.

Project URL:
Purpose of the Project
Students read and understand [above] grade level appropriate material. They write research reports. They use organizational features of electronic text to locate information. They compose documents electronically.
Software and Materials Used
A computer with an Internet connection, a scanner, a printer. Also, traditional art supplies.
The Students
Students should have some basic knowledge of computers but that is not required. Mentor students can assist students who need training. This program is designed for highly motivated 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students. All students at our school were tested for their de-coding and comprehension reading levels. The students selected for this class scored at the top. The class included 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students.
Overall Value
Most of my students had never visited an art museum or a technology museum. As a motivating factor, I told my students that I would work hard to secure a grant to take them to a major art museum and technology museum in San Francisco. The grant, which covered transportation and admission fees, was made available primarily because of the linking of science and art.

If you're like me, the sea of choices for art instruction is overwhelming.  I feel like I don't even know what they need to learn, much less when, how, or what to use.  We all owe a lot to Devin, Stacey, KC, and a few others on the Sonlight Extracurricular Forum, for all their patient advice, often to the same questions over and over.  At least now I feel I have some direction to start from.  There seemed to be a need to put much of that good advice in one place, and save our experts a little work. I want to especially thank Devin for helping get this collection "ready to meet the world."  For trying to save her some work, I sure made her do a lot of work!  Thank you Stacey, too, for your input and reviews.

Then why is it so easy for many of us to appreciate the Neolithic cave paintings? The language that those artists spoke is lost, as are most of the details of their culture, and yet the art speaks deeply without any necessity for latter-day interpretation. Perhaps it is only marginal art

GRADES K-3 PHILOSOPHY - At Artistic Pursuits Inc., we believe every student can understand the concepts of art and enjoy the process of putting ideas and visual images on paper. We are committed to the goal of helping students of all ages discover what it is to be creative. We're here to help parents and teachers give students a quality art education that will prepare them to meet creative challenges in their future endeavors. At the K-3 level we teach how artists work. We introduce the elements of art as they are understood by students this age, and begin an exciting introduction to art history. Students are encouraged to use the information within the book as a starting place for their own ideas. In this way young students understand and use the concept of personal expression. To see a further description, click on Grades K-3 sidebar. We begin the study of the elements of art and composition when students become perceptually aware of those things, usually around forth grade. Books at this level through Senior High introduce learning tools and techniques that students are ready to see in the world around them and that they can apply to their artwork. For more details, see the description below or click the appropriate level on the sidebar.

INTRODUCTION The aim of this Infoguide is to provide to the educator the means to access information in order to teach art appreciation. The nature of the information provided here is broad in scope in order to encompass as many areas of interest as possible. The approach taken was primarily to provide curriculum resources and secondarily to provide resources that enhance and expand those particular curriculums. You will find many references to Goals 2000 and DBAE, as well as numerous generous curriculum suggestions and image collections. There is not a focus on one particular teaching style as the scope of the guide is so broad (k-12). In this Infoguide, the strength is primarily in the WWW resources as those provide the imagery and fast access to a tremendous array of resources. These are enhanced by the inclusion of a context through associations, newsgroups, listservs, and hard copy resources such as dictionaries, encyclopedias, and subject journals.

    Looking At Pictures
    From: Stacey L If you're looking for a great one-volume introduction to art appreciation for young children, you should be Looking At Pictures (LAP) by Joy Richardson. This is a book full of reproductions of paintings in the National Gallery of Art, London. It covers art from the 13th to the 20th centuries, and from all over Europe. A list of the chapter headings will give you an idea of what LAP covers: Introducing paintings; Behind the scenes in a gallery; Why paintings were made; Stories in pictures; Clues and symbols; How paintings were made; Focus on color; Tricking the eye; Everyday life and special events; The power of light; Painting people; Painting objects; Magic landscapes; Organizing the picture. Each chapter uses several paintings to explore a given topic and is written in easily accessible, conversational style appropriate for reading aloud to children about age 6+. LAP offers a good mix of both the mechanics of painting and appreciation / interpretation. Once children grasp some of the reasons why paintings were made, for example, they can then more readily assess a given painting as one meant for home adornment or public display, etc. Large, often full-page reproductions are frequently accompanied by enlarged details for closer examination. Occasionally, details from paintings from earlier chapters reappear for the reader to reconsider in light of a new topic. The book ends with a list of the artists and their works. Although a fairly short book, there's lots packed into its 80 pages!

    The truth is that when a free spirit exists, it has to materialize itself in some form of work, and for this the hands are needed.
    Everywhere we find traces of men's handiwork, and through these we can catch a glimpse of his spirit and the thoughts of his time.

    Art is a way of approaching life, of moving and speaking, of decorating a home and school and oneself, of selecting toys and books. It cannot be separated from other elements of life.
    An Eye that Sees
    A Hand that Obeys
    A Soul that Feels
    Art Materials
    At this age children are capable of many forms of art, including cutting and pasting paper, drawing with chalk, black and colored pencils and beeswax crayons, painting with water color and poster paints, and molding clay. Avoid felt pens and paints and clay with strong dyes and ingredients that are too harsh for the very young and sensitive child.
    It is fun to do special art projects in the home and infant community, but even at this young age children benefit from having a variety of art materials available to them at all times and a space to work, uninterrupted, when they are inspired.

    ART MATERIALS ART APPRECIATION Reproductions of great masterpieces inspire an appreciation of beauty at any age. We hang them at the child's eye level, and provide art postcards to sort into groups, such as by artist. Stories about artists, especially as children, are interesting for children. With the children, we can designate a "museum" table, or shelf where beautiful art objects can be brought into the environment for temporary exhibits. Since everything else in the room is available for handling, this gives practice in just looking, like in a real museum, and allows close exposure to beautiful objects that the child might not otherwise have. Whenever possible we give the best of examples of art and the best art materials, at the youngest, most impressionable age.

    Art 1010
    Course Purpose

    Art 1010 focuses on building a foundation of understanding of basic visual elements and principals of design to enrich and enlarge your appreciation of the visual arts. Through a brief survey of disciplines, media, processes, periods of art history and style and an introduction to a wide range of artists, I hope you will develop a basis for critical thinking and have your eyes opened to a greater art experience. About The Instructor
    Born in 1945 and raised in Bakersfield, California, Gregory Abbott says he can’t recall a time when he didn’t want to paint. He thinks his desire was inborn. He still remembers a preschool teacher taking him to task for not using the “right” colors for a drawing, and even as a young child he was offended that someone would try to control his art work. His early perception of himself as an artist spawned the painting of murals on walls at home, and at 12, the painting of a huge, reclining nude on his uncle’s water tower in Parowan, Utah. Abbott’s parents were supportive of his interests (unlike his uncle, who was shocked by the nude on the water tower and made him repaint the tower with solid gray primer). In addition to encouraging his painting at home, his parents took him on frequent visits to Los Angles, to various museums and galleries, Abbott particularly remembers the opening exhibit of the Surrealists Salvotore Dali, Joan Miro’, Georgio de Chirico, Max Ernst, and Marcel Duchamp at the new Los Angles County Museum. From that day on, Abbott’s art tended toward Surrealism.

    V. Art Appreciation
    Have you heard the Taoist tale of the Taming of the Harp? Once in the hoary ages in the Ravine of Lungmen stood a Kiri tree, a veritable king of the forest. It reared its head to talk to the stars; its roots struck deep into the earth, mingling their bronzed coils with those of the silver dragon that slept beneath. And it came to pass that a mighty wizard made of this tree a wondrous harp, whose stubborn spirit should be tamed but by the greatest of musicians. For long the instrument was treasured by the Emperor of China, but all in vain were the efforts of those who in turn tried to draw melody from its strings. In response to their utmost strivings there came from the harp but harsh notes of disdain, ill-according with the songs they fain would sing. The harp refused to recognise a master. At last came Pai Ya[Peiwoh], the prince of harpists. With tender hand he caressed the harp as one might seek to soothe an unruly horse, and softly touched the chords. He sang of nature and the seasons, of high mountains and flowing waters, and all the memories of the tree awoke! Once more the sweet breath of spring played amidst its branches. The young cataracts, as they danced down the ravine, laughed to the budding flowers. Anon were heard the dreamy voices of summer with its myriad insects, the gentle pattering of rain, the wail of the cuckoo. Hark! a tiger roars,the valley answers again. It is autumn; in the desert night, sharp like a sword gleams the moon upon the frosted grass. Now winter reigns, and through the snow-filled air swirl flocks of swans and rattling hailstones beat upon the boughs with fierce delight.

    Turning a Computer Into a Decent Docent By LAWRENCE J. MAGID In an effort to get by with dwindling resources, many school districts have cut back on art, photography and music programs. I'm not at all happy with the trend, but in the face of this reality, there's some consolation in the fact that computer technology can fill in a few of the gaps.
    There are numerous software programsmany on CD-ROMthat can help teachers and parents teach art appreciation. Although a computer screen lacks the resolution of a finely printed bookand is certainly no substitute for a visit to an art museum or a hands-on workshopCD-ROM-based art education and photo programs can nevertheless provide children and adults with an excellent overview of a genre. What's more, by adding sound and textand, in some cases, animation, video and even interactive gamesthey can provide further richness, making them an ideal supplement to books and classroom instruction.
    Masterpiece Mansion, a Mac and Windows CD-ROM from Philips ($40, [800] 883-3767), is the first CD I've seen that uses interactive games and puzzles to teach art appreciation. Designed for ages 12 and up, the program consists of two parts. One, an art exploration module, lets you view the work of 45 artists from major periods in art history with biographies of the artists and samples of their work. It's far from a full collection, but it does give you a quick overview of the work and lives of Picasso, Raphael, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Toulouse-Lautrec, Monet, O'Keeffe and others.

    Role of the Arts We believe that artistic endeavors are a critical part of a child's education and integral to our interdisciplinary curriculum. In the classroom, in separate classes and through on-campus events, our students are exposed to a wide range of visual and performing arts. The arts help to balance our curriculum, shape the whole child and foster the ability to create, experience, analyze and reorganize. Due to cutbacks in public funding, this may be the only exposure to the arts some students receive during their school years. Our Arts Program builds on individual differences. It affords our students the opportunity to realize their full potential by providing a means for self-discovery, broadening the avenues of nonverbal expression, cultivating a positive attitude toward learning and developing creative and intuitive thinking processes. Arts education increases cognitive development, builds social skills, develops self-esteem, enhances problem-solving skills and critical thinking. Through art, we can reach those who cannot be reached in other ways. The arts are used to teach everything from math, language arts, science to geography and history. Without the opportunity to learn in a visual or hands-on style, students may never discover valuable talents and skills. For our racially and ethnically diverse student body, our Arts Program also provides an important forum for learning about and promoting an understanding of unique cultural styles.
