Lascaux

Lascaux
La découverte de Lascaux en 1940 a ouvert une nouvelle page dans la connaissance de l’art préhistorique et de nos origines. Œuvre monumentale, la grotte continue de nourrir l’imaginaire collectif et d’émouvoir les nouvelles générations du monde entier. C’est à ce haut lieu de la Préhistoire qu’est dédiée la nouvelle publication multimédia du ministère de la Culture et de la Communication, publication qui réactualise autant la forme que le contenu scientifique de ce site mis en ligne en 1998, à la lumière des dernières avancées de la recherche archéologique. Au delà de l’émotion et à la lumière des recherches les plus récentes, le site internet est destiné à faire comprendre les secrets des artistes qui ont peint et gravé le bestiaire de Lascaux il y a 19000 ans et à présenter les orientations actuelles de la recherche scientifique sur les grottes ornées.

A.D. 550). With the advice of an international Scientific Advisory Committee, the leaders of the project decided that A.D. 320 was the best moment in time to begin the work of modeling.

The Elements & Principles of Design Icons These are handouts that I created for my practicum in visual arts this fall. I had the chance to teach the elements & principles unit for grade 9 and 10 and faced the challenge of trying to make these terms easily accessible for a range of students. I found that by going though each element and principle with examples from art history, and then applying this in a studio session, the students got the concepts. The problem was then being able to remember them all. free archive The Royal Society continues to support scientific discovery by allowing free access to more than 250 years of leading research. From October 2011, our world-famous journal archive - comprising more than 69,000 articles - will be opened up and all articles more than 70 years old will be made permanently free to access. The Royal Society is the world's oldest scientific publisher and, as such, our archive is the most comprehensive in science.

w - What to draw: a list I’ve been thinking a lot about drawing these days, and a lot of it is spent wondering about what to draw (raise your hand if you feel the same way!) So I did what an organized person would do – I made a list. At first I hit 50. Then 80. Ancient Egyptian scripts (hieroglyphs, hieratic and demotic) Origins of Egyptian Hieroglyphs The ancient Egyptians believed that writing was invented by the god Thoth and called their hieroglyphic script "mdju netjer" ("words of the gods").

The earliest known examples of writing in Egypt have been dated to 3,400 BC. The latest dated inscription in hieroglyphs was made on the gate post of a temple at Philae in 396 AD.

In this step-by-step lesson we are going to create a simple "2 Point Perspective" view drawing of our test subject example, working from both plan (overhead) and elevation view (side view or profile) reference Fig 1. This type of illustration angle is referred to as a "3/4 Perspective" or an "Angular Perspective" view. The green dots in all of the following perspective grid diagrams identify the lines to be drawn as shown in each visual example.

Two Point Perspective Drawing Lessons : How to Draw Figures and Buildings and Shapes in 2 Pt Angular Perspective with Easy Tutorials Perspective Drawing Tutorial : Angular Perspective This tutorial has a section on angular perspective, which is 2 point perspective. Basics of 1 Point and 2 Point Perspective – AKA Parallel and Angular Perspective Observe that as we view the top, its outer edges appear to converge. Design A Drawing : Use an Appropriate Format When you design a drawing or painting, the shape of the surface you work on plays an important role in composition. Once you pick one, all subsequent composition takes place within that particular shape. This shape is called the 'format'.

Picture Composition : Design Your Painting An attractive painting is almost always a painting with good picture composition. A well-designed painting or drawing grabs your attention from a distance—even before you can see the details. In comparison, a weak composition is less visually appealing at any range. Good composition in a painting results in a harmony of shapes, colors, and values. The viewer's eyes stay interested long enough to take it all in, rather than becoming bored and wandering off.
