Throughout history, art has been intrinsically linked to human life, serving as a mean of expression and as a universal language in which beauty and aesthetics prevail. I’m doing this again because there are professionals in the strength & conditioning community, the amateur & pro sports communities, the clinical rehab community, the martial arts community, and the fitness community that have been exceptionally polite & supportive of me restarting this group class.
We are part of a statewide network of 14 regional arts boards, providing strategic direction for sustainable arts and cultural development for our vibrant region. The ancient Greeks were the ones who created the base, but the first time the term fine arts was coined was in the fifteenth century by Charles Batteaux, who used this to define all these art forms with just two words. They identify a variety of audiences for different arts experiences as they engage with more diverse artworks as artists and audiences. This year, I’ve organized our Sonlight curriculum and plans in a huge binder along with all three Language Arts. Those who wished to specialize would first obtain an education in the liberal arts before proceeding to the practical arts (medicine, architecture) or other fields such as philosophy or theology. Together, the seven liberal arts represent the thinking skills, and served as a basis for the education of all.
This year, Simon (age 8) is working through Sonlight’s Language Arts 3. I love the collection of readers included in this program. You will receive the breadth and depth of knowledge necessary to become a primary school teacher, with specialisations in two areas chosen from the Arts program.
Major constituents of the arts include literature – including poetry , novels and short stories , and epics ; performing arts – among them music , dance , and theatre ; culinary arts such as baking , chocolatiering , and winemaking ; media arts like photography and cinematography , and visual arts – including drawing , painting , ceramics , and sculpting Some art forms combine a visual element with performance (e.g. film ) and the written word (e.g. comics ).
Just a reminder that the research project took place in Newcastle, North Wales and Derbyshire and it will be exciting to share new research and thinking around the impact of the visual arts on the lived experiences of people with dementia. With the end of 2015 near, the completion of The Rich Mouse” limited-edition project at the Tampa Book Arts Studio is also in sight!
