Cultural Expression Painting:

Cultural Expression Painting Mrs. Comstock

What is culture?:

What is culture? Culture is created by a sense of shared beliefs and values of a group: the beliefs, customs, practices, and social behavior of a particular nation or people. There is a difference between examining traits of cultural groups and stereotyping a group. You need to understand that not all groups of people have the same cultural beliefs. You are going to represent an “aspect” of a cultural group you choose.

Before we get started looking at examples, let’s discuss this question: :

Before we get started looking at examples, let’s discuss this question: How can an artwork from a selected culture or historical time period represent that culture or time period ?

Let’s look at an example::

Let’s look at an example: Classical Thai painting is mostly confined to mural paintings inside Buddhist temples and palaces. They are idealistic and the themes frequently depicted are those related to Buddhism, such as the Buddha's life stories, stories of the three worlds (heaven, earth and hell), and also those concerning customs and traditions. The subjects of the paintings reflect different purposes: to beautify and dignify the places of worship, to promote Buddhism, and to educate people through pictures. ( http:// www.thaiwaysmagazine.com/thai_cultures/index.html ) Therefore, this artwork represents the Buddhist culture.

PowerPoint Presentation:

African culture has always placed emphasis on personal appearance and jewelry. Many pieces of such jewelry are made of cowry shells and similar materials. Similarly, masks are made with elaborate designs and are important part of African culture. Masks are used in various ceremonies depicting ancestors and spirits, mythological characters and deities. What do you think this artwork represents?

More African Culture Inspired Paintings:

You will also see in most of Africa’s traditional arts and crafts certain themes significant to African culture recur, including a couple, a woman with a child, a male with a weapon or animal, and an outsider or a stranger, or African facepainting . More African Culture Inspired Paintings

Discussion Question::

Discussion Question: How do perceptions in art reflect cultural beliefs and values? Let’s look at the next slide and see…

Here is an example::

Here is an example: This is the beautiful Hawaiian Goddess HAUMEA. Known as the Earth Mother, Goddess of Fertility and Protector of Pregnant Women, a painting of Haumea is said to be the perfect lucky wedding gift. Haumea's likeness in a newlywed's home ensures blessings of a bountiful and fruitful married life with healthy children. Among HAUMEA'S many offspring is feisty Fire Goddess, PELE, who HAUMEA is said to have birthed through her mouth. ( Con’t . explanation of painting on next page)

The idea reflected in the artwork::

The idea reflected in the artwork: HAUMEA oversees Earth's gardens, especially those in her Hawaiian Island home where the Earth's most exceptional fruits and flowers grow. From Sidney Filson's series "Playing With Gauguin" HAUMEA is depicted in a field of anthurium flowers, hefting a tray of mangoes and very pregnant with a mango herself. The background shows an equally fertile diffusion of Hawaiian mangoes and plumeria blossoms.

Discussion Question::

Discussion Question: How do responses to works of art differ based on whether the viewer is a member of the culture in which the art was created?

Our Purpose With This Project::

Our Purpose With This Project: Create an original artwork that expresses a culture (PP3B-HSL2) Create an original artwork that communicates ideas through the following themes (cultural identity, social commentary, ceremony/ritual, myth/legend) ( PP3C-HSL2)

PowerPoint Presentation:

While you are doing this project, you will also be covering the following objectives:

PP1B-HSL2: Mix tempera/acrylic paints to create different hues :

PP1A-HSL2: Blend values/colors to create new values/colors :

PP1A-HSL2: Blend values/colors to create new values/colors To do this, in your painting I want you to experiment further with colors by mixing black (a shade), white (a tint), and black and white (a tone) when you are creating your colors.

Values can create “form” (not just 2-D shapes):

Values can create “form” (not just 2-D shapes) EP1F-HSl2: identify and use a range of values to create the illusion of complex forms

So, first things first: What cultures are you interested in?:

So, first things first: What cultures are you interested in?

We will go to the library for the research part…:

We will go to the library for the r esearch part… First you will research a few cultures and decide which one you want to focus on. You can do this by searching for images of cultural artwork and then researching the culture that inspired that image. OR- you can decide on a culture you are interested in and then search for specific images about that culture.

The Writing Part::

The Writing Part: You will be writing about the culture you select and how it is illustrated in the image you select. This needs to be a minimum of one page long (typed) or two pages (handwritten). IF it is handwritten, it must be legible.

The Writing Part (con’t)::

The Writing Part ( con’t ): Be descriptive about the culture you select and how the image illustrates aspects of that culture. Someone who sees your image should be able to understand (without reading your research) that you are communicating through ART about a culture.

Our Plan::

Our Plan: We will spend our first two days in the library, researching cultures and images that inspire you. I will be answering your questions in addition to asking you questions about the cultures you choose. Once we have sufficient research, we will begin the process of prepping our canvas boards. Questions??? Let’s do this 
