The Art Object: Drawing and Painting

I find that students are often confused between the terms drawing and painting. They often use them interchangeably when discussing the visual arts. In the lecture on the art object, I will initially focus on these two approaches. Aside from that, I will also introduce the collage as a valid art form.

Media and Materials Part I: Drawing and Painting

Lion Resting by Rembrandt, Ink on Paper

The Arnolfini Portrait by Jan Van Eyck, Oil on Wood

Minotaur by Pablo Picasso, Collage

This will be the point of discussion before I send them out to the National Museum and experience Juan Luna’s Spoliarium¬†once again. This is a beginner’s exercise, but I find that a lot of students reach the collegiate level without even going near it. Some didn’t even recognize it. Well, it’s about time we change that.

      Hi! Thank you for reading and appreciating the post. If only a lot of my students would give time and read as well. I am very to hear that you actually spent half an hour studying this. I hope you would get to enjoy my other posts as well.

      Thanks for visiting! Jan van Eyck really is amazing for his details and his symbolisms.

Once in a while, we perform the traditional notion of romance. #date #romance #gamerchef #ninyo Sunshine in the rain, late valentine's cake. I'm craving this again. #gamerchef #mocha #cake #sweets #dessert #gamerchef made me feel better by cooking chicken and bacon burger. Her served it with prata and salad greens with more bacon! That's good dinner. #dinner #chicken #burger Been experimenting on Jaime Oliver's yorkshire pudding recipe. Though I'm pretty sure the English wouldn't add cheese to it, I did and I liked it. Its probably why it didn't rise this time. Its basically 1 egg, 1 cup milk, 1 cup flour, 1 tsp salt mixed like crazy together. Then in a muffin tin, put olive oil before pouring in the mix. Takes 15-20 mins in a 200 deg oven. The batter is also good for pancakes! #pudding #bread #breakfast #recipe Simple pasta in cream sauce for a stay-at-home Friday night. #pasta #dinner #food First Japanese curry I cooked by myself. I don't have the proportions perfect yet, but I love it! This version has beef, potatoes, and button mushrooms, because that's what I found in my stock. I used black mountain rice because I enjoy its texture and flavor, the more common rice served with this dish is Japanese white rice. #curry #homecooked #lunch #food
