The Language Of Art: A Conversation Between Henri Matisse And Pablo Picasso, Marisa Jones Hooser Jan 2001

The Language Of Art: A Conversation Between Henri Matisse And Pablo Picasso, Marisa Jones Hooser

Theses, Dissertations and Capstones

This study focuses on the dialog between Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso and lays a unique groundwork for instructors in Discipline-Based art education (DBAE). Using two artists, rather than one, it reveals the importance of the basic art elements in a comparative analysis and stylistic variation of both. The art of Matisse and Picasso was intertwined even before their first meeting as it continued to be even after Matisse’s death. It is popular belief that Matisse and his work influenced Picasso’s career, but surprisingly little attention has focused on the influence of Picasso on Matisse’s work or ...


Therapeutic Process Or Final Product? Views Of Artists Compared To Those Of Art Therapists, Katy Durler Jan 2001

Therapeutic Process Or Final Product? Views Of Artists Compared To Those Of Art Therapists, Katy Durler

Honors Theses

When someone approaches a piece of art, it is difficult to speculate by what standards the person evaluates the work. Surely people's backgrounds and personal tastes affect their reaction to a particular art piece, but suppose that a person evaluated art every day as part of his or her career. Do the standards of the job affect the person's method of evaluating art outside the office? Two professions that focus on the evaluation of art are art education and art therapy. In order to better understand the two fields in question, a basic knowledge of the development of ...


Form And Structure In Traditional Japanese Architecture As An Alternative Grid System Solution For Western Magazine Design, Venina Tandela Jan 2001

Form And Structure In Traditional Japanese Architecture As An Alternative Grid System Solution For Western Magazine Design, Venina Tandela

In addition, this study discerns the significance of Eastern and Western cultures by introducing select Japanese architectural principles and applying them to the Western graphic design. Specifically, it addresses the possibility of applying specific forms and structures of traditional Japanese architecture as alternative grid systems for Western magazine design. Because the graphic designer has many elements to work with such as the headlines, the pull-quotes, the images and the captions, the blurbs, and the body text, s/he needs to ...

R2d2 Goes To Work: The Design And Development Of A First-Year Art Foundations Course , Kristen Mary Wright-Evans

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

This dissertation tells the story of the design and development of an experimental first-year art foundations course at Iowa State University. This instructional design (ID) project used an instructional design model that is based on a constructivist theory of learning and an interpretivist philosophy of science. The R2D2 ID model uses three principles---recursion, reflection, and participation---to guide the design and development process rather than a set of prescriptive steps that are typically found in traditional ID models.;The classroom environment was structured around the constructivist teaching strategies of cognitive apprenticeship and problem-based learning. Each of the studio problems were written ...

Trace And The Makers Of Meaning, Lindon J. Thompson Jan 2001

Trace And The Makers Of Meaning, Lindon J. Thompson

Theses: Doctorates and Masters

One of the greatest accessible records of trace and the past is the landscape, which over time acts as a repository of evidence from natural forces and things that humans have created or changed. This thesis considers trace as material and nonmaterial evidence, remnants, marks, vestiges of events past and forgotten or remembered. How can a past that is evidenced only by its traces be read within a landscape context by disciplines of knowledge production? The subsequent interpretation, generation of meaning and understanding of traces contributes to the knowledge, mythology and perceptions of reality for differing groups in different places ...
