The article “Book Tackles Old Debate: Role of Art in Schools” by Robin Pogrebin explains the influence of art and the conclusion of two researchers, Ellen Winner and Lois Hetland. “Students who study the arts seriously are taught to see better, to envision, to persist, to be playful and learn from mistakes, to make critical judgements and justify such judgements,” conclude both researchers.
Around the world, communities carve statues, paint pictures, or assemble and organize items, all of which are ultimately choreographed reflections of who they are. What form the art takes is in the eye of the artist as much as it is in the eye of the beholder. Art incorporates pride – pride of awareness, of authenticity, of individuality, of message, of authorship, the list goes on and on. However, it is universally true is that the underlying message will withstand the test of time. As such, Art has been a part of humanity for thousands of years. People have been viewing, discussing, comparing, analyzing, and fighting over art for centuries. What changes from time to time, however, is the role that art often plays within communities and society. Sometimes art is important for communicating emotions and reinforcing messages and while other times it is a reminder of where we came from. Art’s role in society changes from time to time. Of the many things art means to a community, it also provides a means for society: i) to take pride in culture and history, ii) to communicate messages and emotional catalysts, and iii) to learn.
Everywhere you look you see art. It is everywhere in our life today and has become an important part of our daily life. Arts education helps students develop creativity, visual learning, self-confidence, decision making, improved academic performance, and self-motivation. All are necessary to be successful in life. “Art education isn’t something we add on after we’ve achieved other priorities, like raising test scores and getting kids into college,” said the First Lady Michelle Obama. Art education is important for future students. It allows students to learn about themselves, their culture, their community and the world around them. Creativity and Imagination will be encouraged through the development of an artistic mind. Art uses science, math, and creativity. Art uses math because it involves shapes and angles and when people make an art project with geometric shapes they use math to find what is this angle worth? Science needs art because art helps people to understand and see what they are learning in science classes. Scientists always use and draw models that include art.
Some of the most redefining and revolutionary moments in the history of man socially, have been catalyzed by use of art. Throughout the age’s music, imagery and poetry have been a fundamental tool in reaching out to the masses to condemn vices, motivate people and bring awareness. One cannot underestimate the impact that art has in influencing and communicating an idea to the people. Art is an integral ingredient in the cohesion and integration of any society. Through poetry, the poet is able to put across a message that resonates in the minds of the reader in an artistic manner that ultimately triggers a response. Art is therefore a force to reckon with in the transformation of a society or a regime.
Many people don’t realize that art is involved in everything. I think that as a society it is our responsibility to support, promote, provide access and education to the history and or practice/appreciation of the arts in our community. To be honest when I think of art I think of famous paintings but in reality, everything around us involves art. Through what I have learned in this class so far I have learned that there is more to art than just a painting. Through art we can communicate the things we can’t necessarily see or articulate through spoken or written speech; it acknowledges that which is hidden to the naked eye, and it has a transformative power that allows us to access parts of ourselves and the
Arts, as a luxury, are considered as a periphery element in the process of community development, which play a vital role in community development. Besides, arts are a catalyst to increase cultural awareness, an important element of this awareness to community coherence.
The statement of when artists feel issues in strong and personal way, or that they have something to say about the human condition, they can produce powerful, disturbing and intuitive artworks is true because in many situations, art has influence people to make drastic changes. Artists, in some cases have a stronger influence on people rather that someone making a speech as art involves techniques such as colour, the type of medium and the location in which it was painted. The article, ‘Influence of Art on American Society’ and the artist Shepard Fairey correspond with this statement through facts and artworks.
This dissertation is dedicated to all the Artists in the world who believe that the Arts are agents of social development, cooperation, solidarity, and tolerance, even when their lives confront the injustices of the system.
Each generation presents us with the different varieties of artistic expression. The prevalence of art impacting society has always been constant. With the many forms of artistic expression that exist, it is also easy to see how an individual can test out the different options available to them until finding a specific form that suits their tastes. When this happens, the artist and viewer create a special mutually beneficial relationship. This is evident in the article, “Memory, Money and Persistence: Theater Of Social Change in Context” written by Arlene Goldbard. . Goldbard used her article to expose the concept of social awareness and performances that are relevant to and can even change the open world outside of the arts. This is evident
Art is important and has changed history in many ways. One reason why art is important is because art has meaning to it, I will be talking about Leonardo Da Vinci and how he and his paintings changed the world. Another one of the reasons how art changed the world is the printing press. I will be explaining how the printing press helped art change the world. Then I will explain how art helps change the world by improving kids thinking, imagination and helps relieve kids depression.
Art is a catalyst of change. It can confront both social and political issues as well as providing people with a creative outlet in which they can express their innermost thoughts and feelings - but what effect can art have on our society as a whole? Artists today have the unique ability to connect with people in a creative, innovative way that they can understand and interpret themselves. With this ability, artists are able to express their own views as well as influencing the views of others. Art is an immense part of our world – so much so that we barely even consider its impact upon us – but just how significant is the work of artists in our modern day society?
Where would the world be without music? People look at many high schools and see them for their football team or their basketball team, but what about the band or show choir? Many fine arts departments, such as theatre, band, choir, and debate, are overshadowed by athletics. This has lead to fine arts receiving less funding causing them to eventually shut down. Fine arts in public school provides students with community and scholarships towards a brighter future.
Art plays an important role in each society. Most artists believe that this kind of activities can enhance the people’s perspective, fuel economic development, bring intellectual stimulation and develop the community identity. Art can help people to understand the things such as the social issues in different ways. It can be a tool to build social connections among people with different identities.
The academic programs at Simpson College, whether it be Mathematics, Sciences, or the Arts, have made an outstanding impact on my life. Initially attracting my interest to this institution, these programs hold students to the highest standard and expect nothing less than success. While currently majoring in Actuarial Science and Economics and minoring in Computer Science and Spanish, I have always carried a great appreciation for the Arts, especially photography. Having the ability to capture a single moment in time while also being able to relive that moment and all of its memories is unlike any other experience. Because of this unique trait and various others, the Arts will always carry a significant meaning throughout my life experiences.
In addition, art can be a way people can help express and bring attention to their own ideas. David again says that if a person were to find an inspirational art piece, say on a building or poster, then those art pieces will help a person become motivated to make a change in their world. Furthermore, if a person were to create inspirational art then that allows a person to get their own ideas across to the world. That person may be the one to help people make a change or that piece of art can show the creator of the art is trying to make a difference in their world. So to restate, “everywhere [people] go art is evident. Parks often use sculptures to add interest and to inform people.
