If you would love to learn more about the modern artist movements through exploring, discovering, experimenting’ expressing in the styles, techniques and media used by the modern masters, this is a group for you.
Each month we will all explore a movement and the artists and you will create artwork based on the process. This is a fun and powerful creative method of learning about modern art and the artists.
example we will explore Impressionism Monet and do a painting of water using the Impressionist brushstrokes. work with glazing and medium to over lay color onto color and create the painting effects as the Impressionists did in their work. We will also look for images of Monet’s Water Lilly Pond and garden. You can also do an Impressionist painting form one of your photos during the month.. If this sis something that you want to do join my blog or Facebook group event and we will start January 2015. Happy Creating,
Modern art includes artistic works produced during the period extending roughly from the 1860s to the 1970s, and denotes the style and philosophy of the art produced during that era. The term is usually associated with art in which the traditions of the past have been thrown aside in a spirit of experimentation. Modern artists experimented with new ways of seeing and with fresh ideas about the nature of materials and functions of art. A tendency away from the narrative, which was characteristic for the traditional arts, toward abstraction is characteristic of much modern art. More recent artistic production is often called Contemporary art or Postmodern art
