Introduction to the Study of Humanities, Elements and Subjects of Arts, Sources of Arts

Filed under: Humanities 1 Lessons 2010-2011 @ 1:03 am and



Introduction to Arts and Art Appreciation


  • Basic human needs stand at the center of art experience.
  • What these needs are may be debated and rationalized, but their existence cannot be questioned.
  • The need for a sense of identity reinforced by signs and symbols, the need for confirmation of our inner perplexities, the need to be reassured that inner ambivalence, doubts, and anxieties can be given a shape: these needs are so much a part of our humanity that they function at an unconscious level.
  • This course has to do with the understanding and enjoyment of the arts – a subject which concerns all of us, for every day we are consciously and unconsciously having our values shaped by the art around us, and every day we make decisions and judgments that are determined by our understanding of the arts and our sensitivity to them.


  • Most people know that they are not getting all the pleasure they could from art. They know others who are getting greater pleasure than they from concerts, paintings, plays, and poetry; and whether or not they realize it, they would like to share these pleasures themselves.
  • In the realm of art, they feel like the inhabitants of the world before Prometheus brought them the divine fire:


  • “Though they have the eyes to see, they saw to no avail; they had ears, but understood not; but, like to shapes in dreams, throughout their length of days without purpose they wrought all things in confusion.” – Aeschylus (5th century B.C. Greek dramatist), Prometheus Bounds, 447-451 B.C.


  • a generation that has lost touch with its senses.” Rudolf Arnheim



  • “We have become callously and casually blind. More broadly, you might say we suffer from perceptual pellegra – a decease caused by deficiency of our sensory experience …. A child who enters school today faces a 12 to 20 year apprenticeship in alienation. He learns to manipulate a world of words and numbers, but he does not learn to experience the real world.”


  • To become whole again, we must learn to use and enjoy our senses. An education in the arts is an education of the senses. Artists have always known this.
  • Indeed, our culture and society have not created an environment in which we have been encouraged to feel and experience spontaneously. This is specially true in the arts. We have been conditioned and educated to feel that the world of art is a kind of magic circle which only the initiated can penetrate.




  • We are alienated from the arts as a source of personal enjoyment. They are felt to be the remote and mysterious province  of an elite element in our society, of a technically trained coterie of critics who accept without modesty, perhaps even with pride, the designation “arbiters of public taste,” with authority to say  what is art and what is not.


  • This subject has to do with the appreciation of the arts as normal human activity – not as puzzles to which few people who label themselves “critics” have the key.
  • Before beginning our formal examination of the arts, some reflection on the role which art has played in all cultures and among all people should reassure us of our right and privilege to enjoy the arts as the very human creations of very human beings like ourselves.


The Universality and Importance of Art


  • The arts constitute one of the oldest and most important means of expression develop by human beings.
  • Even if we go back to those eras called “prehistoric” because they are older than any periods of which we have written record, we find works to which we give an important place in the roster of the humanities.
  • Basic rooting of art in the human psyche:

-          the seeking and making of external images for inner feelings and emotions

-          Taking shape in the shadows playing along the rough, rocky walls

-          Image from daily activities.

* Our need to give objective, physical form to what we dream, feel, imagine is the source of creativity. The development and use of skills in doing this give us art.


The Three Languages and the Arts


  • The primary language is built into us as a part of our human heritage. It is built into the very center of our humanity.
  • The secondary language of art is made up of:
  • The convention
  • The traditions
  • The styles
  • The greater the number of works of arts we come to know intimately, the larger our vocabulary of these convention.


  • The third language is about the arts. It is the language in which all books on arts are written.





Art and Experience


  • Art is experience
  • All art demands experience
  • All art involves experience
  • There can be no appreciation of art without experience
  • By experience means the actual doing on something


All the world’s a stage
And all the men and women merely players



Poetry is still, as ever, a source of expression of love



How do I love thee?
Let me count the ways…..

Elizabeth Barrett Brownings


Young people of today are more apt to use songs a quotations or as love reference; everyone is familiar with the cliché:
“They’re playing our song”


Two Characteristics of experience


  • First: The experience of art is personal and individual; it depends on what you are, what you have inside you.
  • Second: Every artistic experience is accompanied by some emotion, or emotional reaction.

Art and Nature


  • Art is not nature
  • Art is made by human beings.
  • Artists frequently find their inspiration and subject matter in nature, and artist do use nature as a medium, but art is itself not nature.
  • What is art is not nature; what is nature is not art.
  • A woman must be looked at as a woman, and a painting as a painting.






The Theoretical basis of Art Appreciation


  • Appreciation cannot be taught.
  • Appreciation comes from experience
  • Experience can only be lived
  • Primary material for a study of arts should always be works of art themselves.
  • This course invites you to open your eyes and ears; it is a guide to what you can see and hear in the arts.
  • It is not a substitute for your very personal looking, listening, and responding.


Two Kinds of activities of coming to know a work of art in a very personal way, of coming to understand it, of arriving at an interpretation of it:


  1. Observing- may be considered as gathering data

 - taking inventory

 - noting what is immediately presented to the senses

 - gathering facts and impressions


       2. Responding

            – a kind of synthesizing activity


Outline of the Course


  1. Background

            a. What is the work of art about? (Subject)

            b. What is it for? (Function)

      2. What is it made of? (Medium)

      3. How is it put together? (Elements and organization)

      4. What is its mood, temper, personality? (Style)

      5. Is it good? (Judgment)


Art: Its Meaning and Importance

  • The Nature of Art
  • The Subject of Art
  • The Function of Art


The Mediums of the Arts

  • Mediums and Techniques
  • The Artist and His Medium
  • The Artist and His Techniques
  • The Medium of the Visual Arts





Culture and Values
How Aesthetics Expresses a World View


Art is always a part of the culture from which it is made……………

Understanding culture helps us to understand the aesthetic creations of a period.


The power of images


Personal Style

Traditional standards of excellence

Political Context

Psychological Content

Emotional Impact

Formal Elements


If art is produced, taught and even sold under particular assumptions about quality and attractiveness, it follows that art must be at least as susceptible to external pressures as any other expression or “statement.”


Culture creates a shared code


Pictorial devices used by artists are called conventions


Levels of Meaning


Aesthetic objects and events can be seen to have meaning in terms of the following 4 aspects:


  • Appearance – The manner in which the work conveys

            meaning based on its physical properties

  • Historical Context – The manner in which the events

            surrounding the work’s creation influenced

            its creation and interpretation

  • Cultural Continuum – The manner in which a work exists

            among other works in a sequence of

            aesthetic and cultural evolution

  • Universal Ideas – The manner in which the work conveys

            philosophical concepts that are universal

            to the human condition


Elements of Art

  • Line
  • Value
  • Color
  • Harmonies and Discords
  • Composition – Arrangement of Elements


Line is the path made by a moving point


Characteristics of line:






Value refers to the lightness or darkness of a line or tone



The primary colors are: red, yellow, blue

When two primaries are mixed they

Form secondary colors: Purple, green, orange


Defining properties of color:





Harmonies and Discords

The most common color schemes are:






Monochromatic color schemes use one dominant color

Complementary color schemes use colors opposite each other on the color Wheel

Analogous Color Schemes are colors next to each other on the color Wheel


The Changing Face of Quality


  • Culture is fundamental to how art is viewed


Manifestation refers to a visual code that is understood by a certain culture in a particular time




Art is always a part of the culture from which it is made……………

Understanding culture helps us to understand the aesthetic creations of a period.

Because aesthetic expressions are based on aesthetic concepts and techniques, a formal understanding of these parameters and their development is essential to an appreciation of their value.




  • What is the subject of the selection?


Think of the storm roaming the sky uneasily

Like a dog looking for a place to sleep in,

Listen to it growling.


Think how they must look now, the mangrove keys lying out there unresponsive to the lightning in dark coarse-fibred families…. (Bishop, Elizabeth)

- (“Little Exercise”


What is a Subject?


  • It is a term used for whatever is represented in a work of art.


Not all arts have subjects.


  • “Nonobjective” – they do not represent anything. They are what they are without reference to anything in the natural world.


Ways of Presenting the Subject


  • Realism
  • “no art is ever like nature”
  • Even when artists choose a subject from nature, they change, select, and arrange details to express the ideas they want to make clear.
  • Naturalistic art
  • Abstraction
  • Sometimes an artist becomes so interested in one phase of a scene or a situation that the subject is not shown at all as an objective reality, but only as the artist’s idea of it or feeling about it.


Signs and Symbols

  • Signs have a literal quality.
  • Symbols combine them with an abstract or suggestive meaning. It means more than they say.
  • A sign has a one to one reference to what it signifies; it points to something in some context other than its own.
  • A sign or group of signs become symbolic when it expresses more than it strictly signifies. It has literal meaning and suggestive meaning.


Beautiful and Ugly Subjects of Arts

  • What are fit subjects for art?
  • Are there certain subjects that are not allowed in art?



  • The subject of a poem may be anything whatever.
  • The subject of a poem is not the same thing as the theme.
  • The meaning of a poem is not the same thing as its subject or its theme.
  • This three statements are true of all the arts. Art may be about anything, although some subjects seem to be more effective in one  medium than another. And the nominal representational subject of a work of art is not the same thing as its theme.
  • Finally, and this is most important, the content of a work of art – its significance, value, and importance to us – is more than its subject and theme. Indeed, it is the very nature and essence of art that it is more than all its parts, that holistically it reaches us in ways that are not merely rational, that bypass the intellectual and affect us in intimate, personal ways.


Lessons of Life


The secret of life is not just to live but to have something worthwhile to live for.

If you look around, you can always find someone who is worse off than yourself.

Be grateful you are not that person.

If you can find a path with no obstacles, it is probably doesn’t lead to nowhere.

If you expect something for nothing, you are doomed for disappointment.




-         The subjects used in art are usually clear and obvious. They need no explanation other than the work itself.



  1. Nature
  2. History, including legend, folklore, and current events
  3. Greek and Roman mythology
  4. The Judaeo-Christian tradition
  5. Oriental Sacred Text
  6. Other works of arts



  • Animals
  • People
  • Landscapes

-         The most common inspiration and subject matter for art.

Introduction to the study of History and Chapter 1




What is History?


Etymology of the word:


His – Man + Story = Man’s Story





Social Science


Important/ significant

Past events


Chronicle of important and significant past events that influence the present and shapes the future.


Theories of History


n      Cyclical theory

n      Historical Nihilism

n      Evolutionary/ Darwinian

n      Marxism

n      Biblical/Christian


The next question that we need to address is what are the uses of history?

n      There are many different types of history:

n       cultural history,

n      diplomatic history,

n      narrative history and

n      social history.


n      History clearly seeks to explain not just what happened but why it happened when it did.


n      For a great period of time people believed that history unfolded according to Divine will.

n      Thinkers such as Thomas Carlyle in the 18th century exalted the role of the individual in the process of history and it was the individual actions of key individuals at key moments in time that created history.

n      Opponents of Carlyle contended that history was determined by forces and laws and by the actions of entire societies.

n      Economists explain historical processes from the stand point of group action that is influenced by economic forces.

n      In the 19th century Karl Marx argued that irresistible economic forces governed the action of human beings and determined the trend of historical events.

n      Marx believed that the shift from one economic stage to another—such as the shift from feudalism to mercantilism to capitalism to what we have now—is attained by upheavals and revolutions.

n      These revolutions occur because the class controlling the means of production eventually resists further progress to maintain its vested interests.

n      Other 19th century thinkers such as Oswald Spengler maintained that civilizations grew like biological organisms and all experienced a spring, summer, fall and winter in their evolution.

n      Finally, Charles Darwin argued that civilizations survived due to the survival of the fittest and Herbert Spencer later created what is known as Social Darwinism out of this line of thinking.


Why Study History?


n      To know and be informed of the past.

n      To understand the present.

n      To design the future.


Branches of Social Sciences that historian consult about the explanation of some phenomenon.


n      Economics

n      Anthropology

n      Archeology

n      Geography

n      Political Science

n      Sociology

n      Linguistics

n      Philosophy


It is important to understand the cultural stages that human civilization has gone through and throughout history there have been six needs common to all peoples throughout history which for the basis of a “Universal Cultural Pattern”


# 1. The need to survive or make a living: all men and women must have food,

       shelter, clothing and the means to provide for their children’s survival.


n      #2 The need for law and order and this includes the needs of the community to keep order within their own communities, protect community assets and protect the community from external attack.


*    #3 The need for social organization. For numbers 1 and 2 to be achieved there must be a social structure and hierarchy within the community.


n      #4 The need for knowledge and learning. Human experience and knowledge are transmitted first orally, and then by means of writing systems.


n      #5 The need for artistic self-expression. People need to express themselves creatively, either through cave paintings or by writing books or creating music forms.


n      #6 The need for religious expression. All peoples have a need to understand or at least attempt to explain their existences, the natural world around them, and especially death.

-          Namuno mula 1226 hanggang 1270.

-          Tahimik na tao at isang magiting na krusador.

-          Dalawang krusada ang kanyang pinamunuan:

2.       Noong 1270 kung saan siya’y namatay sa isang salot.

-          Dahil sa ipinamalas niyang mga banal na Gawain siya ay idineklarang santo ni Papa Boniface VIII noong 1297.

-          Apo ni Louis IX

-          Namuno sa Pransiya mula 1270 hanggang 1314.

-          Pinalawak ang teritoryo sa pamamagitan ng pagpapakasal sa tagapagmana ng Navarre at Champagne.

-          Noong 1302 tinanggap niya angkauna unahang pagkakataon ng  mga karaniwang tao sa Estates General o Parliamento ng Pransiya.

-          Sa pasimula ang Estates General ay binubuo  lamang ng kinatawan ng unang dalawang sector ng lipunan- ang unang Estado ng binubuo ng mga klerigo at ang pangalawang estado na binubuo ng mga maharlika.

-          Ang pangatlong sector ng lipunan ay ang pangatlong estado na binubuo ng mga karaniwang mamamayan.

-          Sa pagsapit ng 1300 ang pransiya ay isa nang mjalakas na bansa kung saaang makapangyarihan ang haring Capetian.

-          Ngunit sa tatlong anak ni Philip the Fair ay walang naiwan na lalaking anak na magmamamana ng trono kaya noong 1328 nagwakas ang paghahari ng mga Capetian.

Isandaan Taong Digmaan

-          Noong 1337 inangkin ni Edward III hari ng Inglatera, ang rono ng Pransiya at ito ang naging simula ng isandaan taong idgmaaan na tumagal hanggang 1453.

-          Noong 1429, nilusob ng mga ingles ang Orleans at batay sa takbo ng labanan ay susuko na ang mga pranses.

-          Sumipot an glider na lubha nilang kailangan, siya ay isang batang-batang dalaga na ang pangalan ay Joan of Arc.

-          Wala siyang karanasan sa pagdidigma gunit siya ay nagkaroon ng pangitain na isinugo siya ng Diyos upang pangunahan ang mga pranses at palayain ang pransiya.

-          Binigyan ng hukbo si Joan of Arc at dahil sa matibay na paniniwala ni Joan napalakas niya ang espiritu ng mga pranses at kanilang naitaboy ang ingles sa Orleans noong 1429.

-          Sa loob ng isang taon, bumagsak si Joan sa hukom ng mga Ingles at siya ay idineklarang erehe at mangkukulam ng simbahan at ginawaran ng parusang kamatayan sa pamaamagitan ng pagsunog ng buhay.

Kahalagahan ng nagawa ni Joan of Arc

-          Ang dalagang ito na hindi nakapag-aral ang siyang pumukas sa pambansang espirity o kamalayan ng mga Pranses.

-          Matapos ang pagkamatay ni Joan hindi na nagtagumpay ang mga ingles at pagkawala sa kanila ng Bordeaux noong 1453.

-          Nagwakas din ang isandaang taong digmaan.

-          Walang naiwan sa kanila sa kontinente maliban ang Calais sa hilaga.

-          Bago magtapos ang siglo nagkaroong ng lakas ng loon si Charles VIII na angkinin ang isang bahagi sa Italya.

Ang Simbahan at Pransiya

-          Hidwaan sa pagitan ni Pope Boniface VIII at ni Haring Philip IV noong 1294, ipinagutos  ni haring Philip sa mga klerigo na magbayad ng buwids sa pambansang tesoreriya.

-          Tumutol si pope Boniface at bilang pagtugon ditto ipinagbawal naman ni Philip IV ang paglalabas ng Pransiya ng pera o mga mamahaling bato.

-          Nagging sagabal ito sapagpapadala ng mga klerifo sa kinagawiang bayatin at suportang pera sa Roma.

-          Dahil dito nagparaya  ang papa sa kgustuhan ng Hari.

Babylonian Captivity

-          Pagkamatay ni Boniface nagawan ng paraan ni Philip IV na maging papa ang isa sa kanyang tagapayong Pranses.

-          Mula sa Roma inilipat ng bagong papa ang sentro ng papado sa Avignon.

Ang Espanya noong ika-16 na siglo

-          Nasa ilalim ng mga Muslim.

-          Naglunsad ng mga Espanol at Kristyano ang Reconquista sa kagustuhang mabawi  ang kanilang lupain.

-          Noong 1400 tanging Granada na lamang ang nasa ilalim ng mga Muslim.

-          Ang kristyanong kaharian ay binuo ng Castile, Aragon at Navarre.

-          Napag-isa ang mga kahariang ito noong ika-16 na siglo at ang Espanya ay kinilala bilang nangununang estado sa Europa at nanatili sa kalagayang ito sa loob ng isang siglo.

Ferdinand at Isabella

-          Si Isabella ang tagapagmana ng Castile at si Ferdinand naman ang tagapagmana ng Aragon, at ang kanilang pagaasawahan ang unang hakbang sa pagiisa ng Espanya.

-          Pinasigla nila ang Reconquista upang mapalayas ang mga Moor sa bansa.

-          Noong 1492 nasakop nina Ferdinand at Isabela ang Granada at ito ang naging hudyat ng pagwawakas ng kapangyarihang muslim sa bansa.
