The art of theatre is very important part of our culture. Without entertainment, whether it is individual or with a group humans could not stay occupied. Throughout time stories have been pasted down from generation to generation-through words, books and theater. Theatre continues to thrive and has become an important subject in schools now. People are allowed to express their creative and critical thinking to really allow the viewers to get involved. The purpose of theater is to develop performance art through any distinctively cultural foundations. Theatre is able to enrich our social and cultural views through art and performance. Actors provide a stage that they can really test the limits of their own creativity by ongoing dialogue of ideas.
The “whipping man” is to show the relationship between a master and slave. We are shown that after losing everything you never know what you will have left. Caleb is part of a white family that bought slaves and treated them like family. Caleb leaves and returns only to find out that the two people who are left after war are two slaves his family owned. Simon and John are now forced to take care of Caleb because that is all they know to do. Simon is the main caretaker and demands respect from Caleb when he returns home, because things are different now and he should not be treated the same. John struggles with this relationship with Caleb because when they were younger the two were best friends until Caleb was given the opportunity to whip john. The play is illustrating relationships between master and the slaves. Caleb realizes that they may have been slaves back then but they are not anymore and want to be treated with respect. Twists and turns are added to the story and as each new revelation comes to light information the audience learns is bound to affect the opinions of each of the characters.…...

The Museum of Fine Art

...The Museum of Fine Art I went to Boston in this spring break and I visited one of the largest museums in the United States, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts. The Museum of Fine Art attracting over one million visitors a year. It contains over 450,000 works of art, making it one of the most comprehensive collections in the Americas. It is also the 54th most visited art museum in the world, and the twelfth most-visited in the United States, as of 2010. The Museum was founded in 1870 and opened in 1876, with a large portion of its collection taken from the Boston Athenaeum Art Gallery. There are tons of different exhibits; some temporary and some more permanent. I went to see some of the temporary exhibits- Degas and the Nude and Aphrodite and the Gods of Love. The permanent exhibits include items of Paul Revere, silversmith, which are really cool. Their early American collection represents a wide variety of art and arts, craft and crafts. I tend to love their artifacts collections. Their permanent modern art gallery is cool but for me, is not as strong as some of their other offerings, like their collection of priceless musical instruments from around the world, throughout history. Their permanent pan-Asian art gallery is strong for its location. I'm not a big fan of their restaurant, but their cafe is open, airy, and pleasant. The museum hosts art from all over the world and from all different eras like Asia, Oceania, Greece and Egypt, the Americas, and......

Intro to Fine Art Assignment 3

...Intro to Fine Art Assignment 3 Question 1. In order to fully understand Roman art, we must understand that “Roman culture was modeled on that of the Greeks.” (Lewis 228) More specifically our textbook states that “while the romans absorb their artistic ideals from the Greeks, they were more realistic than idealistic, more active than philosophical, more pragmatic than creative.” (Lewis 228) One example of the more realistic art contributions made by the Romans is “a tradition of realistic portraits.” (Lewis 228-229) The Roman sculpture of Cato and Porzia exemplifies this realistic portrait sculpture. The portrait is very realistic and descriptive of all of their features despite their somewhat unattractive nature. By contrast, the Greek’s would have preferred a much more idealized sculpture of the couple. Another aspect of art introduced by the Romans can be seen in their architecture. The Romans used many of the Greek techniques but also “borrowed the idea of the arch from the East and exploited its possibilities to construct public buildings of great size, feats of ancient engineering.” (Lewis 230) The Roman Coliseum could not have been built using traditional Greek architecture due to the weight of the structure. In addition to the use of the arch in Roman architecture, “The Romans developed the architectural feature of the dome.” (Lewis 233) The Roman Temple the Pantheon is a great example of the Romans use of the dome in architecture. The Roman use small stones......

...Arts and Crafts A few weeks ago, I made my first trip to an art gallery, the Tucson Museum of Art, in Tucson, Arizona. I went in ready to take notes with my notepad and pen not knowing what to expect, but hopeful that I could find a few pieces worth writing about. At the entrance, the ladies at the information desk were very helpful in getting me started after I explained my mission. After relieving me of my pen and giving me a pencil, I walked through the gallery. I found many pieces that I really liked, and only very few that I didn’t. Throughout my visit, it became more and more difficult to choose only two pieces that I like and one I do not. Fortunately for me, the day I visited the Museum was the last day of Judy Miller’s exhibit called, Imaginary Dioramas. Miller’s dioramas involve taking pictures of celebrity’s wax figures (normally from Madam Toussad’s Wax Museums), and superimposing the pictures onto an unlikely background. Imaginary Dioramas is about dichotomy. One of my favorite pieces from the exhibit was titled, Outtake #26, Uma. The background of the picture is a serene forest in autumn, showing trees and many leaves on the ground. On the left side of the picture is a close-up of Uma Thurman in her part as The Bride, Beatrix Kiddo, from the movie Kill Bill volume 2, looking more than ready for the director to yell, “Action!”, so she can continue to cut bad guys in half with her sword. On the right side, the director, Quentin Tarantino, is shown......

...beginning. Other artists such as Barbara Foster’s “The Great God Pan” and Sophie Ryder’s “The Minotaur” also inspired me to take element from within the element that the creature belonged to. Because of the inspiration from the green man I attempted to slip cast leaves as a means of developing a way of incorporating the natural surroundings. Although the leaves were very fragile once fired the delicate beauty of them and level of detail the clay had captured concreted my idea to include some kind of mould or print of the natural world within my final piece. By now I was aware that I wanted to maintain the focus of my final piece within classic Greek/Roman mythology as it is a period of history that has always fascinated me not only through the fine detail of the marble sculptures but also the strength of spiritual belief in gods and the legends that surround them. I began by looking at artistic representation of my favourite Greek/Roman god Poseidon/Neptune. I have always had an interest with this god from stories such as the Little Mermaid and a fascination with the sea. By starting here it gave my investigation a little more of a personal link. Despite looking at the work of Manuel Garcia Calderon and Edvard Enksen’s ‘Copenhagen Mermaid’ I was incredible inspired by the presentation of the god within the classic marble sculptures. The level of detail and emotion captured within the face of the piece was so detailed that the piece almost looked alive, this was something......

...spectacle. The use of plastics, steel, aluminum, advanced lighting control, and sound recording equipment drastically changed the face of theatre production and quality. This is also a period of open experimentation both in design and production and has resulted in the development of the minimalistic and fractured realism styles. Minimalism is a style, which reduces the design elements to the least number necessary to produce the production. Fractured realism uses limited realistic elements separated in a fractured nature. Furthermore, a division of the theatre workforce into separate specialized artisans increases both operational efficiency and overall quality. The development of the technical director to oversee the production elements further organizes the modern theater. However, this specialization requires a great amount of trust and collaboration between the director and other artists on the production team. The advent of director/designer teams like Eli Kazan and Jo Melziner are in response to this emerging need for collaboration. Historical Background Obviously, the anti-realism movement is a reaction to the realism movement. However, this was more than a knee jerk reaction to the scientific examination of human relationships to society, culture, and politic. It was a burst of creative activity in both art and language. During the late 19th century an enfranchised citizenry of educated, thinking, voters and consumers were exercising their......

...Definition and Beginnings of Theatre Arts Theatre or theater is a branch of the performing arts. While any performance may be considered theatre, as a performing art, it focuses almost exclusively on live performers creating a self contained drama. A performance qualifies as dramatic by creating a representational illusion. By this broad definition, theatre had existed since the dawn of man, as a result of the human tendency for storytelling. Since its inception, theatre has come to take on many forms, utilizing speech, gesture, music, dance, and spectacle, combining the other performing arts, often as well as the visual arts, into a single artistic form. The word theatre means "place for seeing". The first recorded theatrical event was a performance of the sacred plays of the myth of Osiris and Isis in 2500 BC in Egypt. This story of the god Osiris was performed annually at festivals throughout the civilization, marking the beginning of a long relationship between theatre and religion. Elements and Principle of Theatre Arts There are six elements necessary for theatre: Plot, Character, Idea, Language, Music, and Spectacle. Script/Text, Scenario, Plan:  This is the starting point of the theatrical performance.  The element most often considered as the domain of the playwright in theatre. The playwright’s script is the text by which theatre is created.  It can be simplistic, as in the 16thcentury, with the scenarios used by the acting troupes of the Commedia dell’ arte...

...I viewed a play from the Oliver National Theatre in London broadcasted on the 31st of January 2015. The name of this play is ‘A Small Family Business’. It began at 7:30pm at the Eileen L. Auditorium in Paraquita Bay. The play as written by Alan Ayckbourn. The designer is Tim Hatley, the lighting designer is Paul Anderson and the sound director is Gareth Fry. The main actors are Jack McCracken, played by Nigel Lindsay, Poppy McCracken, played by Debra Gillett, Samantha McCracken, played by Alice Skyes, Desmond Ayes, played by Neal Barry and Benedict Hough, and played by Matthew Cottle. The play is about Jack McCracken and his entrepreneurial greed after taking over his father-in-law’s business. Upon his takeover he is approached by a private detective named Mr. Benedict Hough, who has knowledge of some compromising information. He later then realizes that his extended family is known thieves and adulterers who plunders the business from their home. It then concludes with a small housewarming party with their trouble, Mr Hough, dead. The acting was a little more developed than I thought. It was on-point in some areas and in others not so good. At first I thought Niky Wardley, the character Anita McCracken, was over acting but u then realized that that was supposed to be the kind of character she was; boastful. At some point in time Poppy’s back was shown to the audience. I liked the character Samantha McCracken. Her part was played very well. I noticed in the end and......

...there is a digital-like granularity to how we analyze and store experiences. We don’t remember every single point in time as a discreet instant—rather our memories are aggregations of a number of instances we have grouped based on some consciously or subconsciously perceived similarity.” (Ryan Wolfe, 21c Museum) III. Aesthetic Value What attracted me to his work was how he was able to capture that instance of nature and bring it indoors on a wall for everyone to experience. It is inspiring by how he was able to engineer the experience through electronic devices that gave the wall life. It means a lot that someone experienced something so small but yet brings us to that experience that we are alive. I personally think this piece of art has its place, but I was not a fan of the exposed wires connecting one device to another. I would not purchase this piece. References 21cmuseumhotels. (2009).

...Fine arts and music education should continue in public schools. Anyone exposed to the arts and/or music benefits from life-long advantages. Education in these areas is associated with improvement in mathematics, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skills. These are very important aspects in life, all of them necessary in order to make a mark on society. Studies also show that involvement in the arts increases motivation, boosts confidence, and also improves concentration and teamwork skills. Again, these are very important aspects in life. Students who are exposed to the arts generally perform better on standardized testing than those who do not. This is due to the academic gain in important subjects such as math and reading, which have a tendency to be tested the most heavily. Also, as stated before, students exposed to the arts gain important critical thinking skills, which is included in most standardized testing. Unfortunately, some school districts fail to recognize the importance of education in the arts. Over the past three decades, art education has been gradually slipping. The result? Lower test scores. I’m sure you can see the correlation. On the bright side, a majority of the United States realize the importance of art education. Forty states require art education in order to graduate from high school. Those 80% of high school graduates in our country more than likely have better jobs and better communication skills. Why? Because they......

... Name Instructor Date Compare and contrast pieces of fine art Fine art has been considered as the major source of history, which has articulated several formatives that depict on the essence of humanity. Based on different sources, fine art has navigated some comparatives that portray the nature of history that equally aligns some prospects that site on the major differences on art. To start with, the major goal of the fine art is mainly to promote a unique active and thoughtful approach towards analyzing some specification of art history. Therefore the process requires taking into consideration by comparing and contrasting some essentials of the two pieces of art that attempt to approach the critical thinking analysis. This assumption invites availing the simple analysis of the information that ideally addresses the craft of an effective subtlety that is undertaken on the process. Every step that is articulated on the preparation of the early course on the fine art is depicted as an informative exhibit that is consolidated in organizing the discrete bits in a larger notion. This is well crafted on the practice of the fine art that distinguishes the level of thinking in the history of art. Based on that note, the major exercise that reviews on fine history has added the benefit of the emerging success on the concepts of well-crafted images of fine art. This equally announces the expected comparison that focuses on this practice. The completion of the moral abstract by......

Fine Arts Describing an Artwork

...Patric Rooney Intro to Fine Arts Gary Towne The fine arts are comprised of multiple forms of arts, two of them being visual art and music. I decided to analyze one piece of visual art and one piece of music, based on several different elements of the respective categories. I chose to begin with the visual art piece, The Arnolfini Wedding, because of its many small and intricate details hidden in the artwork. Jan van Eyck (Flemish, before 1390-1441), The Arnolfini Wedding, 1434, oil on oak panel of 3 vertical boards, 82.2 cm × 60 cm, National Gallery of Art, London, is an intricate piece of art with many minuscule details that contain an abundance of symbolism and meaning. One of the first things to catch your eye will be the man and woman standing in the forefront of the image. At first, one may believe that the woman in the velvet green robe is pregnant, but it has been found that this was actually excess fabric from her robe creating the bump on her stomach. Both the man and woman have their hands in positions that imply that they are taking some type of oath, more specifically an oath of marriage. The clothing worn by the wedding couple is common clothing of their time, for people of the upper class. If you were to zoom in on the picture, you begin to realize the realistic qualities of all of the textures in the painting. One use of this skill that jumps out at me is the lifelike beads that sit beside the circular mirror. If you look closely at the gear...

19th Century Art Education, Industrial Art or Fine Art?

...19th Century Art Education, Industrial Art or Fine Art? Varick Taylor East Carolina University MAED Art 6800 History and Philosophy of Art Education Abstract As an art educator in the today’s public school system, I feel that it is my responsibility to introduce and allow my students to explore the arts from the past and the present. I want them to learn a variety of art making techniques and art history. I also want to prepare them for future by giving them exposure to possible career choices that utilizes the arts. Therefore I feel it is important that my art classes allow students to be exposed to both the fine arts and design fields of the 21st century. 21st century technology like 19th century industrialization has influenced art education methods. The use of technology in classes is increasing each year. We are using design software to create both designs and fine art assignments on computers. In the 19th century, industrialization was one of the most important reasons why art became a part of public school education. Government leaders and the industry wanted America to able to compete with the superior European imports. As a result they felt that requiring drawing as a subject in public schools would help the U.S. in competing with Europe and balance trade. Knowing how much they wanted America to produce better products, I was puzzled when the Massacusetts did not model its art education after the France, whom was considered the best in producing superior......

Romaew Beardens Fine Art

...Romare Bearden’s Fine Art Romare Bearden was an African American Artist. He was born in Charlotte, North Carolina then moved to New York City as a child. Bearden has done many different types of works including oil, cartoons and collage. Romare is best known for his collages. He is recognized as one of the most creative and original visual artists of the twentieth century. He fills his work with the symbols and myths of the American black experience. In this essay I will compare and contrast two of Romare’s pieces. It was difficult to narrow down to only two pieces because Romare has a large quantity of remarkable work. The two pieces I decided on are “The Block” and “Golgotha”. “The Block” was made in 1971. It shows a Harlem neighborhood with an optimistic spirit. The neighborhood shows a barbershop, a corner store, liquor store, a church and funeral parlor. The neighborhood seems lively with people outside on the sidewalk, children playing and pedestrians in a hurry. It gives you that feeling of daily life in Harlem. One unique aspect of the picture is that is shows you daily life indoors and outdoors at the same time. The collage shows people at home watching TV, people inside having a conversation and a couple making love. In this collage I see a lot of line being used. Line is a mark by pencil that forms part of the formal design of a picture. I see it with the different buildings. The lines used make it look like the buildings aren’t supposed to be together...

...Fatima Pootrakul – Theatre Management 1- How will you go about obtaining property? What will you need to obtain this property? We would need to acquire the rights to produce the play “Ghetto Klown”. Team awesome would contact John Leguizamo himself and his attorneys. This would be easy to obtain since our good friend Luis Guzman worked closely with John in the past and has kept in contact with him since. We would need small rights since it is a non-dramatic play. If “Ghetto Klown” has musical intros or segways then we would have to obtain a license from either ASCAP, BMI or SESAC. At the end of the day, we will obtain grand rights to avoid any law suits or injunctions with copyright infringement. Even though we will have the assurance from Mr. Leguizamo himself in that he controls the rights we need to produce the play, Team Awesome trusts no one and can easily fall into a false sense of security. Better safe than sorry! 2- Will you need actors? Dancers? Or both? If so what performers-related unions will you have to deal with? Provide some examples of rules and regulations the union dictates. Since we are using the one-man show “Ghetto Klown” all we would need is one actor. The Actors' Equity Association (AEA) is an American labor union representing the world of live theatrical performance, as opposed to film and television performance. However, performers appearing on live stage productions without a book or through-storyline (vaudeville, cabarets, circuses) may......

Theatre Art Investigation Essay

...relationship between them. In some plays all of the actors may adopt the same attitude towards the audience (for example, the entire cast of a production of a Chekhovian drama will usually ignore the audience until the curtain call); in other plays the performers create a range of different relationships towards the audience (for example, most Shakespearean dramas have certain characters who frequently adopt a downstage ‘platea’ playing position that is in direct contact with the audience, while other characters behave as if unaware of the audience’s presence). Audience is an essential part of the theatrical event. With the actor it comprises one of the two indispensable elements of theatre. There seems to be no dispute over this fact. Yet the audience is the most elusive element of the theatre to deal with, source material is scarce and complex; it does not submit to simple analysis or definition. Primary sources tend to mention curiosities connected with the extravagant behavior of spectators, or to ignore the audience altogether. But in Hansel and Gretel, I know Jonathan Aitken and Sheldon Rosen, Ryerson professors, have developed a unique twist on live performance. Incorporating interaction between live actors and animated typographic actors, their play Hansel and Gretel explores multiple modes of communication: between actors and audience, actors and actors, actors and animated text and animated text and audiences. It includes original music and sound as well as......
