ARTH 223 Survey of Art, Ancient to Medieval 9/8/16 Professor Dr.Sarah Diebel 323E APPA Introduction to the class Art will always reflect the thoughts, beliefs, and culture of the people who make it. In class Dr. Diebel discussed several different things about art including the App “Artsnap” which is a funny app that places interesting and humorous captions over pieces of art. Something worth checking out. She has even taken classes abroad to see several of the pieces we observe in class. We did an overview of the Syllabus, which can be read further in depth on D2L. A discussion in class started out with observation and Art, but more importantly, what constitutes as ‘Art’. What is it? We observed two pieces of art for this discussion as well as one questionable one. The first was Greek Statue of Victory, then a Painters Large swirls, and then black velvet painting of Jesus and Elvis, which one could view as a “shit piece”. Or the lack of a better term, “bad art”. “It evokes emotion, is a concept unique to the artist, and conveys an abstract thought or experience. It involves the viewer” Out of these answers the professor posed this question. Why do we create? One could say this is because we are in awe of the human presence when it comes to recreations, or rather, someone else’s view or interpretation as well as the evidence that they are there in the art themselves. This can be found through brushstrokes, markings, a record of a gesture if you will. I wouldn’t say this an answer but rather part of one. An app that she discussed was called Prisma, an app that turns photos into ‘mock’ oil paintings. Why is this pleasing? Because it’s focus on the basic shapes, more vibrant colors? Its more inviting than the photo its self. Is this ART? Readings to be done can be found in the syllabus for assignments including the Web Link to “the Art of Observation”.
