This paper is a formal analysis of the Marble grave stele with a family group relief sculpture. It is a pentelic marble style relief standing at 171.1cm tall carved by a master. It is from the Late Classical period of Greek, Attic which was completed around ca.360 B.C. . I chose to analyze this piece as apposed to the others because I’m mainly attracted to art and sculptures from the Greek era. The overall color used in this relief is ivory with a few cracks and pieces broken off. There is some discoloration which causes the color to come off as slightly light brown for most of the relief. The sculpture appears larger compared to the other sculptures in the art room. It represents a family which includes a man, his wife, and their

In early Christianity there was a lack of art depicting stories from the bible, in the renaissance time period there were a lot of masterpieces being created and most of them were being created to exemplify the stories from the bible. Many artists became famous for eternity just by the designs the created. Some of the most famous artists that are still looked at and used today in schools when showing artistic styles are; Michelangelo Buonarroti, Raphael Sanzio, Leonardo da Vinci, and Albrecht Dürer. They all have their own stories behind how they became famous, but what each one has in common is that they were talented in their own form of art. It may have been in different forms such as painting, architecture, or sculpting but they all had an eye for artistic design.
These two clubs were able to help me realize I wanted to be learning with a group of leaders who are excited about their studies and who are aware of their community. Business is the basis of our world and I want to be a part of this Business Honors Program with other students who are just as passionate as I
In the mid-1800s artists frustrated by the restraints placed upon them by governing bodies such as the French Academy of Fine Arts, began a movement that became known as Impressionism. These artists created paintings based upon their view of the world around them, and how they felt in both their hearts and minds in a manner that fit their own personal style and in doing so shattered the glass ceiling that existed for centuries to control how art was made. As history demonstrates, paintings and other works of art are created within a particular style and that this style is one that is widely set by the culture as the acceptable standard for art. The style includes both form and composition and is influenced by the time period, the region and
Some future projects lined up for the club are holiday cards, blankets, plant pieces or any suggestion from the members. They also hope to begin doing volunteer work in the community.

In elementary school I had art class right after lunch. As a kid I was very excited to go to art class because I always wanted to be an artist someday. I would go home and just draw anything that come to my mind like flowers, hearts, landscapes and more. One day in class my teacher taught us how to draw three dimensional figures. The student had to sit or stand on top of the desk and pose for us and we had to draw it. It was fun and very cool to do. Moreover, towards the end of the school year we would have assemblies. While the assembly was going on they announced that they were giving out awards and prizes. Then out of nowhere my name and a few other students got called down for the best artistic in the class. We had got a sketchbook, art
Art is a world wide known skill, where the artist expresses themselves with no limitations. Over the years, humans have produced numerous forms of art, such as paintings, sculptures, architecture, music, and the list goes on. For instance, Renaissance art is mesmerizing due to the fact that back then their art was very realistic looking rather than earlier work. Renaissance artist used perspective and foreshadowing in order to create an illusion which made their paintings so realistic. Not only were their paintings realistic looking, but so were their sculptures due to their classic techniques. Another beautiful form of art is Baroque art. Baroque art is also very realistic looking, but natural looking, and it contains dramatic contrast between light and dark shadows. Their artwork would reflect political and cultural changes that were happening across Europe back in the 17th century (The Editors of Encyclopædia Britannica).
All over the world, art is used to represent many things, especially the artist's imagination
European art during the 1400-1700s, just like any other decade, has had many influences, as well as new discoveries. One of the major influences that marked this specific time period as the “rebirth” of classical art was scientific and humanistic approaches to the styles. The three main time periods showcasing these influences in each of their key styles are Renaissance, Baroque, and Rococo.
Contemporary art has evolved into many different forms and genres. The substantial amount of freedom given by the art educational institutions to the artist enables the practice of seeking new ways of expression and evolution. This open mode of creation is necessary for the practice to freely evolve, but the freedom brings a huge responsibility onto the maker too. There is also a question of whether there is a real freedom of expression, in the world governed by the social and institutional rule and order. Shall the artist seek to escape the expectations of the societal responsibilities and demands of the art institutions, and if yes, to what extent is it possible and meaningful for the avant-garde attitudes to exist within the contemporary
Many schools encourage people to become involved in service-learning projects. These projects can range from art clubs, tutoring, science clubs, math clubs, etc… These service activities are good for helping students solve real world problems, and training them to cope with real world situations. Many students also find these services enjoyable. These services help prepare our younger generations for the real world as well as help them develop people skills. But what service do I think every school should have? Well, I think an art club should be mandatory for most if not every school. Here are a few reasons why I think so.
DePaul Activities Board, DePaul Music Business Organization, and Springboard Theater Company are all organizations I want to get involvement in just for pure entertainment of them. DePaul Activities Board is said to be the largest programming body on campus and could be a great place to meet new people at DePaul. As a former cello player I miss getting involved with the music scene at school which is why DePaul Music Business Organization see like a great way to bring music back into my life.
