The Alphabet of Art The Robert J. McKnight Memorial Web Site Welcome to the Alphabet of Art. This site explains, in simple terms, the elements of visual design. Once you understand the Alphabet, you'll be able to "read" pictures and other works of visual art and understand why they work the way they do. The Alphabet of Art was developed by the late Robert J. McKnight derived many of the ideas in the Alphabet from Maitland Graves and his book, The Art of Color and Design (McGraw-Hill, 1951). The Alphabet of Art is a service of Guidance Communications, Inc. The Alphabet of Art — A Notation System for Visual Design The visual notation system known as the Alphabet of Art is made up of Elements and Attributes. The seven Elements are the things that the artist or designer works with: Line, Line Direction, Shape, Size, Texture, Value, and Color. The Attributes are defined as the qualities that the art or design conveys to the observer. In any notation system there must be a method of making comparisons.
Museo Nacional del Prado The Bizarre, Flexible Paper Sculptures of Li Hongbo What at first look like delicate works of carved porcelain are actually thousands of layers of soft white paper, carved into busts, skulls, and human forms by Beijing artist Li Hongbo. A book editor and designer, the artist became fascinated by traditional Chinese toys and festive decorations known as paper gourds made from glued layers of thin paper which can be stored flat but then opened to reveal a flower or other shape. He applied the same honeycomb-like paper structure to much larger human forms resulting in these highly flexible sculptures. Hongbo recently had a solo show at Dominik Mersch Gallery in Australia who made the videos above, and you can see much more of his work on their website.
Kaleidosketch Arts in the PYP How arts practices are changing Structured, purposeful inquiry is the main approach to teaching and learning arts in the PYP. However, it is recognized that many educational innovations (or, more accurately, educational reworkings) suffer from the advocacy of a narrow, exclusive approach. The degree of change needed to teach arts in this way will depend on the individual teacher. As an aid to reflection, the following set of subject-specific examples of good practice has been produced. Arts strands What do we want students to know? Responding The process of responding provides students with opportunities to respond to their own and other artists’ works and processes, and in so doing develop the skills of critical analysis, interpretation, evaluation, reflection and communication. The responding strand is not simply about reflecting; responding may include creative acts and encompasses presenting, sharing and communicating one’s own understanding.

Art Student Owl Art Student Owl is a meme that spoofs the stereotypical art student in popular culture. Chain smoking and devoted to everything having to do with art to the point that anything else becomes unimportant, the art student scrapes by on student loans, barely having enough money to eat and looking down their noses at anyone who lives in the “real world” and doesn’t suffer for something greater than themselves – their art. They also tend to see anything and everything as either art or something that should be used as art. The meme itself contains a photograph of a rather bored looking owl (who knew owls could look bored?), with a cigarette dangling out of its beak, appearing to be just a moment away from pontificating on some deep art-related subject. The text around the meme art typically has something to do with art, art school, artists, or anything else art-related.
