Like the American economy, American art and literature flourished during the Gilded Age. The new millionaires desired greatly to furnish their mansions with beautiful things. Consequently, patronage for the American arts was at a higher level than any previous era. Painters depicted a realistic look at the glories and hardships of this new age. Writers used their pens to illustrate life at its best and its worst. The net result was an American Renaissance of arts and letters.

They were called the Lost Generation. America's most talented writers of the 1920s were completely disillusioned by the world and alienated by the changes in modern America. The ghastly horrors of trench warfare were a testament to human inhumanity. The ability of the human race to destroy itself had never been more evident. The materialism sparked by the Roaring Twenties left many intellectuals empty. Surely there was more to life than middle-class conformity, they pined.

The arts reflect the society that creates them. Nowhere is this truer than in the case of the ancient Greeks. Through their temples, sculpture, and pottery, the Greeks incorporated a fundamental principle of their culture: arete. To the Greeks, arete meant excellence and reaching one's full potential.

Powerful kingdoms, beautiful sculpture, complex trade, tremendous wealth, centers for advanced learning — all are hallmarks of African civilization on the eve of the age of exploration. Hardly living up to the "dark continent" label given by European adventurers, Africa's cultural heritage runs deep. The empires of Ghana, Mali, and Songhay are some of the greatest the world has ever known. Timbuktu, arguably the world's oldest university, was the intellectual center of its age.

Aboriginal Hand Prints

Aboriginal Hand Print
(art + history; art + social studies)
"One old man in Arnhem Land remembered being carried as a child on his father's shoulders as his father climbed up a log leaning against a rock wall. His father then sprayed his hand with red ochre against the rock, leaving a stencil he could still recognize many years later. The main function of the stencils was to record people's presence and association with a site." — Aboriginal Art Online

The stenciled hand print and aboriginal style drawings help children to relate to the man from the Australian Aboriginal Culture stated above, while helping them to understand the use of line in art. A black paper with white splattered paint was used, but white paper with red (ochre) splattered paint would make a nice impression also. Construction paper crayons make bright, bold, linear designs around the hand stencil.

Conditions of Use:

Making art together is one of the most important ways students can engage in a collaborative process, and talk about the messages and methods they believe in. Art takes time and process. Once children have had a chance to look at different symbols and think about the importance of technique, colors, shapes, and styles, it is time with each other and their art materials that will really allow them to express themselves, finding their voices as artists and activists simultaneously.

As students move forward with work on their activist murals, it will be important for them to think about managing their time and materials. It will also be important for them to remind themselves and each other of their messages and ultimate goals. Continuing work on an ongoing project can be challenging for some children, but it is an important part of developing an identity as someone who does good and important work. Make sure you show respect for the challenging aspects of this activity as your students move ahead with their mural.

Ahmet Öğüt "Across the Slope" Interpretation Pack
Rating

This SALT Interpretation Pack has been designed as a resource for educators and students as they explore the themes of the Ahmet Öğüt "Across the Slope" exhibition at SALT Beyoğlu in Istanbul, Turkey. Designed for use in high school classrooms, its contents include activities, multimedia resources, terminology and opportunities for discussion. Educators are encouraged to adapt, shape and build upon these materials to best meet the needs of their students and teaching curricula.

"Across the Slope" was first exhibited at Centre d’Art Santa Mònica, Barcelona, in 2008. An installation of a modified Seat 131 (the Fiat 131 Mirafiori model produced in Spain) hovering over a man-made slope, "Across the Slope" responds to the dream of an emerging working class. When, in the 1970s, Fiat began licensing automobile production to manufacturers in Turkey, Spain and Morocco, car prices in these countries dropped. Cars were no longer luxury items. They became affordable consumer products—and symbols of a “modern,” Western lifestyle. Though modification of the Fiat was common, as Öğüt demonstrates, no matter how advanced or decorative the modifications, a car’s capacity remains the same: “A slope is always a slope, and it is always possible for a car to get stuck on one.”

Ahmet Öğüt "Yokuş Boyunca" Yorumlama Rehberi
Rating

SALT Beyoğlu’nda düzenlenen “Yokuş Boyunca” sergisindeki temaları açıklayan bu Yorumlama Rehberi, eğitimciler ve lise öğrencileri için bir kaynakça olarak hazırlanmıştır. Eğitimcilerin, rehberin içeriğindeki aktiviteler, multimedya kaynakları, terminoloji ve tartışma olanaklarını öğrencilerinin ihtiyaçlarına en iyi cevap verecek şekilde düzenleyerek müfredatlarına uyarlamalarını öneririz.

“Yokuş Boyunca” ilk olarak 2008 yılında, Barselona’daki Centre d’Art Santa Mònica’da [Santa Mònica Sanat Merkezi] sergilenmiştir. Sergi alanında oluşturulmuş bir yokuşta kalmış modifiye bir Seat 131 (İspanya’da üretilmiş Fiat 131 Mirafiori modeli) enstalasyonu olan “Yokuş Boyunca,” gelişmekte olan orta sınıfın mütevazı hayallerine gönderme yapmaktadır.

Fiat’ın 1970’lerde Türkiye, İspanya ve Fas’taki imalatçılara otomobil üretim ruhsatı vermeye başlamasıyla bu ülkelerdeki araba fiyatları düşer. Araba artık bir lüks olmaktan çıkar; bütçeye uygun bir tüketim ürünü ve “modern”, Batılı yaşam tarzının bir simgesi haline gelir. Fiat’ın modifikasyonu yaygındır; ancak Öğüt’ün “Yokuş Boyunca”’da gösterdiği gibi, modifikasyonlar ne denli gelişmiş ya da dekoratif olursa olsun, bir arabanın kapasitesi hep aynı kalır: “Yokuş hep yokuştur ve bir arabanın bir yokuşta kalakalması her zaman mümkündür.”

The main objective of this lesson is to illustrate an important application of mathematics in practical life -- namely in art. Most of the pictures selected for this lesson are visible on the walls of Al-Hambra – Granada (Spain), which is one of the most important landmarks in the Islamic civilization. There are three educational goals for this lesson: (1) establishing the concept of isometries; (2) giving real-life examples of groups; (3) demonstrating the importance of matrices and their applications. As background for this lesson, students just need some familiarity with the concept of a group and a limited knowledge about matrices and the inverse of a non-singular matrix.

This class investigates the theory, method, and form of collage. It studies not only the historical precedents for collage and their physical attributes, but the psychology and process that plays a part in the making of them. The class was broken into three parts, changing scales and methods each time, to introduce and study the rigor by which decisions were made in relation to the collage. The class was less about the making of art than the study of the processes by which art is made.

This course is an exploration of visual art forms and their cultural connections for the student with little experience in the visual arts. It includes a brief study of art history and in depth studies of the elements, media, and methods used in creative processes and thought. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: interpret examples of visual art using a five-step critical process that includes description, analysis, context, meaning, and judgment; identify and describe the elements and principles of art; use analytical skills to connect formal attributes of art with their meaning and expression; explain the role and effect of the visual arts in societies, history, and other world cultures; articulate the political, social, cultural, and aesthetic themes and issues that artists examine in their work; identify the processes and materials involved in art and architectural production; utilize information to locate, evaluate, and communicate information about visual art in its various forms. Note that this course is an alternative to the Saylor FoundationĺÎĺ_ĺĚĺ_s ARTH101A and has been developed through a partnership with the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges; the Saylor Foundation has modified some WSBCTC materials. This free course may be completed online at any time. (Art History 101B)

Art and Social Justice: What is a Portrait?
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Most students are familiar with at least some portraits—pictures or paintings of people—but perhaps they have not had a chance to think about the way a portrait shows a person. In fact, portraitists make a lot of choices when they execute their work. These choices include how the artists see the subject, and how the artists want the subject to be seen by others. It is important for young children to develop a critical eye when looking at portraits, just as they are developing critical thinking skills in other areas. In particular, this lesson helps children start thinking about what a portrait can show about race and racial stereotypes, and how portraitists might reinforce or fight against stereotypes through their art.
