課程簡介

本課程專注在口說的練習,主題是二戰後的藝術發展,藝術是如何地影響我們的生活呢? 我們眼睛所及的廣告、音樂、電子產品,又有哪些藝術的元素? 

每週以一種藝術派別作為討論素材,我們會討論重要的藝術家、經典作品、創作的時空背景等等。藝術是一個媒介,可以幫助我們更了解某個時代的生活與人性。

我們會練習描述畫面,也會試著表達自己的感受,對英文口說而言是很好的練習。從未學習過藝術的朋友也很歡迎參加,只要有好奇心就非常足夠了 :)

老師 Stella 立志成為插畫家,從小對於藝術充滿熱情。她將帶領學員探索藝術的豐富與精采。

Summary

What is art? That is the question. For this class, we will look into prominent artists post WWI and see how they continue to influence the expansive landscape of art and design today. Art can be mind-boggling, political, philosophical, pretty, "not art", etc.

Art can be anything but not everything! So, what is art for you?

I'd also like to note that my understanding and knowledge of art is from a Western perspective – so to disrupt this status quo, students are encouraged to debate and share their ideas of what art should/ could be.

Format

  1. We will examine different art movements, learn about the key figures and discuss how it is relevant (or irrelevant) today. Students are encouraged to share their own knowledge of art or culture and to introduce contemporary artists in relation to the given art movements. Debates are highly welcomed.
  2. We compare the art movements with current trends, whether it be in art, design, pop culture, the internet, politics, etc. To better understand "art", we will look at how art manifests or influences our everyday life.
  3. There will be readings/ youtube videos provided before each class. The readings should foster creative/ critical thinking and incite discussion. 

Week 1: Readymades & Dadaism
Week 2: Conceptual and Performance Art
Week 3: Kitsch & Irony
Week 4: Contemporary & Political Art

What you can learn from this class

1. various artists and art movements (Post WWI & today) 2. critical thinking 3. conceptual ideas about art 4. how art relates to current times 5. art (or how to talk about it)

My experience for the class

I went to art school and majored in Critical Studies (art criticism/ history). Back in Canada, I've worked at galleries and blogged about art and art exhibitions. I've also taught English in Japan for 3 years and love learning new languages!
