INTRO TOART CH. 1 NOTES **These notes are all pulled from the textbook Prebles' Artforms 11 Edition. If I cannot find a way to re-define a word, I will use the exact definition from the book and cite it at the end of the notes. This will help with keeping the definitions clear, precise, and to the point. Anything with an asterisk is pulled directly from the book without any kind of revising or editing. Thanks** • Work of art: An experience or idea that is visually expressed through a medium. • Medium: Examples of media are canvas' and paint, paper and charcoal, concrete, marble, etc. Whatever the art is being portrayed on or from. • Mixed Media: Arts that is made up of different mediums or materials. If you were to make a work of art that contained photography, and oil paint, it would fall under the mixed media category. • * Five traits to define creativity: ◦ Associating: The ability to make connections across seemingly unrelated fields. ◦ Questioning: Persistently challenging the status quo, asking why things function as they do now, and how or why they might be changed. ◦ Observing: Intently watching the world around, without judgment, in search of new insights or ways of operating. ◦ Networking: Being willing to interact with others, and learn from them, even if their views are radically different or their competencies seem unrelated. ◦ Experimenting: Exploring new possibilities by trying them out, building models, and taking them apart for further improvement. • Photo montage: As series of photographs that portray and action or feeling in a single unit. (One piece) • Folk artists/outsider artists: Also referred to as untrained artists who have not studied or practiced art professionally. • Representational art: Literally depicts an object (called subjects) or form. When the art depicts human form it is called figurative art. • Abstract art: Depicts an object or form in a distorted, disfigured, or immoderate way. • Nonrepresentational/nonobjective art: Does not depict any certain form, object, or figure. It is visually pleasing through various patterns, lines, and/or colors. • Form: The overall effect from the combination of lines, shape, design, color, etc that a piece of art offers. • Content: The message that a work of art portrays, or is trying to portray. • Iconography: Anything in a work of art that is symbolic in any way. This can include motifs, symbols, certain colors, phrases, etc. • Looking: Taking in the value, purpose, or function of a presented object. (Looking at a door and understanding that it opens.) • Seeing: Not considering the value, purpose, or function of an object, but connecting to the objects' aesthetic with feeling. (Looking at a door and realizing it could be symbolic for new beginnings.) Works cited Frank, Patrick, and Duane Preble. "Part One."Prebles' Artforms: An Introduction to the Visual Arts. N.p.: Pearson Education, 2009. 2-19. Print.
