Art History – An Introduction

Art has been called the language of the heart. It can communicate on many complex emotions in a very direct and simple manner. The 7 disciplines of modern art: drama, music, poetry, visual arts, film, and sculpture. To truly define modern art culture is too difficult to fully define. Culture is how cultures tell their stories through certain behaviors and dominant schools of thought throughout history.

In our modern society, the art practices of various cultures are intermingled with one another creating hybrid forms of art. This fusion of contemporary fine art disciplines is what is commonly known as, “postmodernism”. The fusion of different practices has allowed artists in countries such as the United States, Russia, and France to create works that speak to a cross section of people from different backgrounds. Aesthetics have become an important factor when discussing the creation of contemporary fine art.

Art has long been considered to be one of the most important aspects of human life. It is used to express feelings, to tell stories, and to offer instruction. It is a form of communication that allows us to examine our identities, our relationships, and how we view the world around us. The study of contemporary, fine art culture has taken several forms. Art history has become one of the most popular fields of study in recent years.

Art education has evolved into a number of topics. One of the most prominent schools of thought is graphic design. It includes art education, computer aided design, and drawing. In computer-aided design, artists use software to design and create images from computer generated databases. Students will create artworks with a combination of traditional drawing and 3D visualization. There is growing demand for talented individuals in this field due to the high level of competition.

The next type of art history is theatre arts. This discipline studies theatrical presentations and other related artistic forms. Students study the creation of plays, film, music, and visual communication. They will learn how these art forms impact society. Students will explore a wide range of topics to include historical, social, and political contexts.

Visual culture theory considers how visual forms are produced, evolved, and preserved. It examines how artists make available the materials they use to create their art. An art history course may include topics such as digital media, digital art, digital painting, origami, or applied arts. Students who wish to specialize in a particular area of art history can complete a concentration degree. A student who wishes to teach art history can pursue an associate’s, bachelors, masters, or doctorate degree.
