Art Museum Experience

Good Essays
During my visit to the art museum I saw a lot of styles of art that I hadn’t experienced before. From glass and paintings to sculptures and photography there was quite a bit to take in. I enjoyed my trip to the Vero Beach Museum of Art much more so then I expected. Seeing all of the different pieces of art in person really seemed to intensify the experience of critiquing art in a different way than I had experienced just viewing pictures of art in class or at home. Some of the pieces really affected my mood and would grab my attention and leave me in thought for 10-15 minutes before I had felt ready to walk to the next area, it was something I hadn’t experienced and didn’t expect to experience when originally taking this course.

The piece I disliked was Early Winter by Ernest Lawson it’s an oil on canvas painting that’s 22 ½ x 37 inches. This piece was the only one I saw during my visit to the art museum that I actually felt I disliked. It doesn’t seem like the picture is meant to portray sadness, but the colors are very greyed and overall it’s just the opposite of the previous piece I chose. This picture is of the winter and the colors used portray that quite well. It’s very greyed and cold feeling and while still having a lot of colors doesn’t really give off feelings of warmth. This picture had a profound effect on my mood and even made me feel very melancholy while I observed it. There are no signs of life in the photo even the trees are dying and I felt this was representative of the way the artist might have felt while painting this piece. While viewing this piece I felt like I could imagine the artist sitting on a hillside during the early winter looking over this lake and painting this piece in the cold and feeling …show more content…
Throughout the semester we learned all of the concepts and styles and techniques behind the art, but I didn’t really have a connection and feel very enticed with art until I took this trip and experienced great art by myself and in person and not just in a class looking at pictures. I think this course and even more so the time I spent at the museum really helped open my eyes and mind to all the art in the world and reading into the message behind the artwork and learning about the feelings of the artists. I’m happy that I took this course and I’m especially happy that this outside activity was an important part of the course because it certainly had a very strong impact on my experience in the course and my overall experience with art thus far in my

    After consulting with the director of the Museum, I found out that each exhibition is changed every four weeks and only occasionally there is a theme portrayed throughout the exhibitions. Although there was not a theme for each exhibition the relation between art pieces was present. It seemed that pieces similar to one another were put next to each other. I belive this was to compliment one another and bring attention to the art that was not as similar. Establishing a relationship between each item displayed is important because the complementary of the items enhances the viewer’s experience and adds importance to the theme (if presents) of the exhibition.…

    Since my lesson for this day is easy, I told them that they teach their other classmates that was absent for this day. Day 13 I woke up late this day but still I arrived on time. I’m so excited and my students as well because they enjoyed my activity that I prepared for them. I make some joke also when discussing the activity. I saw the enjoyment in their eyes and it makes me feel so glad and…

    That is one of the reasons I choose this art piece. CONCLUSION: My field trip assignment to the Egyptian Gallery at the Brooklyn Museum of Art was really awesome. The magnitude of the various art pieces in that area alone was overwhelming, however the Pair Statue of Nebsen and Nebet-ta “drew me in” with is expression of love and affection. My time there was well spent observing fine art from other…

    At first when I was writing my first lesson I was stressed because I have never done one, but as I started and went through it, it was actually fairly easy and just like other lessons, just more detail and standards. I feel that teaching art lessons are more entertaining, and the students get more involved. Students seem to really enjoy lessons, and I hope that in the future I will be able to expand my knowledge on art and teach more…

    The soldiers lost their body parts including: fingers, toes, and part of their leg. I don't need to lose any body parts just because of the frigid, cold weather that they had there. The frigid, coldness made it difficult for the soldiers to fight and to work in. This reason is causing me to not re-enlist because I like warm weather opposed to the cold and die because of the extreme cold. ( Washington at Valley Forge/ Diary of Dr. Albigence…

    The first week or so was pretty lonely sitting in a classroom waiting for people to show up but finally they did! I definitely started out by getting to know them and being friendly. I had great students in my tutoring sessions they were all a lot of fun and happy to be there. I have taken the classes that I was tutoring so it was nice to help the other students get familiar with the classroom. I personally know can be overwhelming to walk in to a big classroom full of unfamiliar bones, models, and equipment but I enjoyed helping them get comfortable and learning from the classroom.…

    law firm internship. An agonizing few days passed as I waited for a reply, and I was ecstatic to learn that I had been chosen for the internship. No words could explain how excited I was but the smile that filled my face said it all. At this internship, I built upon what I learned at Hyde Square Task Force and developed more confidence and determination to succeed in a professional environment. Not only did I take Shakespeare, writing, public speaking, civil rights and art classes, but I also worked in an office, participated in community service events, and visited colleges, which all helped me explore and adapt to different ambiances of the work…

    Having to write a research paper, research a topic and give a ten-minute speech and participate in National History Day and Science Fair from 7-12 grade actually paid off in college! Overall, I really enjoyed learning new tactics on how to better my writing not only by grammar but also being told I have to slow down. I’m never going to find a class that I enjoy every little thing about, but I did learn that I was very wrong to judge this class before even trying it…

    I felt like the actual researching and gathering information on the function of the camera went really well because I learned so much from that. I had lots of fun playing around with my camera and that really helped me get more experienced and creative. It took aa while for me to finally get good photos that I actually liked and wanted to be put on display. I took a lot of experimental pictures but they were never really related to my project so I couldn’t use them in my final outcome. Most of friends were willing to help me out for my photos so at first, I decided to take some photos of them - this was in the beginning of my project - and that helped me play around with the different functions of the camera.…

    Each year, members of the community gather at the HAPpy Museum, a night full of exhibits by Human Anatomy and Physiology (HAP) students. The exhibits show how beautiful and delicate the human body is. Instead of making it another assignment, Dr. Heavers encouraged students like myself to “curate” the museum and gain both valuable education and valuable leadership experience. The students connected with prominent community figures, advertised the museum, and ran the event. Presenting and enriching the information changed me more than reading the information out of a textbook would have.…
