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.

Bodega. Escaped the humidity, now watching the rain. Good Sagada coffee, just hard to hold coz its hit coffee in a glass. Excellent Sagada yogurt with bugnay, a local berry similar to blueberry. Yummy oatmeal and orange cookie. Good place in the neighborhood. I should be writing, but I'm eating. Lol. #coffee #manila Suman latik for Sunday morning. Steamed glutinous rice with coconut syrup, a traditional dish in the Philippines. Perfect with a cup of tea. #breakfast #manila Sugar rush for Louise's baby shower. Fun bonding moment for the department. I feel so grown up, I never thought I'd be the type to co-organize one of these things. Excited for the baby, apparently the first one in about 18 years for art studies. #babyshower #das #upd #moment Crab, shrimp, and tahong dinner. So full. And I really smell like crab now. They seriously need to improve ventilation. But the seafood is nice and fresh, satisfied my cravings. New place in Maginhawa is worth a shot. #seafood #dinner #maginhawa Autumn in Anyang. I really miss the freezing cold. APAP 2016. Also, welcome to ig @dstempfer :p #art #installation #anyang #korea Transition. I miss the cold. Tropical summer feels like a hot, wet, heavy blanket. #korea #moment #autumn #winter #snow
