Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History. During the twentieth century, outside commentators defined poro (or lô) as a universal age-grade initiation association common to all Senufo communities in West Africa.

They also attributed much of the region's artistic production to the institution. Based primarily on observations made in areas of northern Côte d'Ivoire, scholars, colonial administrators, and missionaries emphasized that Senufo boys from different lineages passed through a series of initiation stages before...

Part of me is so in love with these textile moths {the colors, the patterns, the skilled technique required to make them}, but the other part of me… shudder! Yes, I have some major issues with flying things {there’s a story about a butterfly sanctuary in there, but that’s for another day.} Luckily these beauties, by North Carolina based artist Yumi Okita, can’t fly… RIGHT? Oh, and just so you have a sense of scale: Lovely… but I am sooooo glad that’s not real.

Key to American Innovation? Incorporating Art and Design into Education

We will have self-driving cars, and the advancements of 3D printing will make it possible for anyone to design and create physical objects. Our cell phones will be ambient technology—no longer requiring our attention, learning our behavioral patterns in the background, and politely serving up our next favorite lunch spot. Life will be good in the future. But here's the catch: innovation in the next 100 years could bring a hefty price tag for the United States, figuratively and literally, because much of it will probably happen outside U.S. borders. Consider that the cost of innovation in technology and software—which runs everything from your microwave, to the self driving car—is expensive and takes time. While these companies are U.S. As Steve Jobs once said, "Technology alone is not enough.

FRANK MEADOW SUTCLIFFE

F.R.P.S.)1853-1941 born at Headingley Leeds October 6th 1853 to the painter Thomas Sutcliffe and Sarah Lorentia Button. He had an elementary education at a dame school before moving into the new technology of photography. He set up his own professional photographic studio in a dis-used jet workshop along Waterloo Yard, Whitby in 1875 and eventually established himself in more suitable premises in Skinner Street, Whitby.

He married Eliza Weatherill Duck, the daughter of a local bootmaker January 1st 1875 and had a son and three daughters at his home in Sleights. Frank Meadow Sutcliffe is probably Whitby's most famous artist. Photography in Victorian times was not an easy craft to master and people were often content to produce an acceptable image which was sharp and well exposed - but there were a handful of photographers who wanted to lift their pictures into the heady realms of 'Art' Sutcliffe was one of these.

The Jealous Curator

I had a girl crush on Shauna Alterio before I got to Philly last Thursday night… but then I met her {and her wonderful husband Stephen!} , and well, I am in complete awe of both of them. They literally are creative geniuses, and their home… my word, it’s like waking up in an artsy heaven! Have a look: Yeah, I know! This is GIRL CRUSH No.5, and I am always still so moved by the conversation that springs up during our morning of creative block bashing exercises. Ok, so after about five pots of coffee {thank you Stephen!} Collages on found book covers! Sugar. Thank you soooo much to our lovely sponsors: decor : bhldn // gift bag : green market / girls can tell / made by hank / giant dwarf / seed house Yes. A visit to Lost at Sea, Gallery Hanahou. I don't usually do adventure stories, but on Thursday night I got to see my lovely friend Kendra for the first time in months and we did a fun art thing together.

A visit to Lost at Sea, Gallery Hanahou

We went to see the opening of a lovely art show curated by Kristen Rask(of Schmancy and Plush You fame) called Lost at Sea, over at Gallery Hanahou. From their site: ' "Lost at Sea" gathers 33 exciting artists who share underwater visions of items lost, creatures forgotten, and life that struggles to stay with us. The show will feature a broad array of amusing and uncanny works in embroidery, plush, and other materials, including new pieces by Hine Mizushima, Jill Bliss, and Jenny Hart of Sublime Stitching. It is a must see, and is open until June 11th just off of Broadway and Houston.

Sadly we went late and so missed meeting Nicole (Astulabee). I didn't take any photos even though I brought my camera, but I wanted to share my favorites of the evening, so here they are from flickr (with permission!). ------Miniature Rhino -moo.

Hilarious Celebrity Portraits - My Modern Metropolis - StumbleUpon

Take a look at his celebrity portraits of everyone from Quentin Tarantino to Chris Rock and you'll notice a common theme running throughout his work. They're wonderfully wacky! Having worked as an assistant for Annie Leibovitz from 1993 to 1996, Schoeller has the guts to create dramatic scenes that call for his subjects to work outside the box. He's been a staff photographer at The New Yorker since 1999 and his work has appeared in magazines like Rolling Stone, Esquire, Vogue and Vanity Fair. No doubt it's his unique flair that captures our attention and has us eternally wondering what he's got next up his sleeve.

Pictures of David Bowie Doing Normal Stuff

This post, at #2, was originally published January 8.] Happy Birthday, David Bowie! The ultra-flamboyant king of glam rock turns 65 today, if you can believe it. Though he’s known for his avant-garde attitude, ever-changing persona and incredible style no matter what his incarnation of choice (can you think of anyone else who looks as good in a sharp suit as he does in glitter face paint? We can’t either), he’s also just a normal guy. He rides the subway. What's inside. An impossiblility in an impossible universe.

This section won't concentrate on the muscle structure, since the hand is very complex in this regard, and knowing this won't help much in drawing them. Instead, we'll look at proportions, range of motion, and possible simplifications. Structure and proportions Figure 2.20. Bone structure and proportions of the hand There is a very easy and surprisingly accurate way to remember the proportions of an adult's hand. The palm of the hand houses the metacarpal bones. The palm of the hand can be simplified to a box. Figure 2.21. Notice that the box does not line up with the contour of the fingers. The two black arrows in the previous figure show how the little finger can move up and down. Figure 2.22. Take a look at some examples of how to use this model: Figure 2.23.

Sketchbook Secrets: 50 Beautiful Sketchbook Scans. The sketchbook is—to borrow a term from the new millenniums’ popular discourse—an artist’s BFF. It’s a diary for the visually inclined—a place where artists can most comfortably explore their personal thoughts, work out their visual needs, practice, maintain a visual history, and hopefully create the unpolished work that will eventually lead to amazing work for the world to see. But, sometimes, when we’re lucky, we get to see the process. Below are 50 beautiful sketchbook scans from 35 talented artists.

Perhaps I should begin this post by introducing you to my mom, also known as Her Ladyship Craftiness…er, Her Royal Craftiness?

I’m still working on the title. Regardless, she’s the coolest, most creative and talented woman I know. She can make pretty much anything. At least once during high school, I borrowed a friend’s purse, brought it home to Mom, and she whipped one up just like it for me. Yes, I probably abused the power of being Her Ladyship’s daughter, and I no longer steal my friends’ purses, but the point is: my mom is awesome. If you follow Young House Love, Bower Power, Making a House a Home, or Style by Emily Henderson you know how timely her visit was, as today is the big reveal for the Pinterest Challenge. The supplies were pretty simple: canvas, crayons, and hot glue. The next step was to peel off the paper labels from all 60 crayons. It worked like a charm. What do you think of our masterpiece?
