ART STYLES Art Style
Examples & Artists Claude Monet
Impressionist art is a style in which the artist captures the image of an object as someone would see it if they just caught a glimpse of it. Most pictures have a lot of color (bright and vibrant) and are of the outdoors.
Vincent Van Gogh
A style of painting in which the artist seeks to express emotional experience rather than impressions of the external world.
Maria van Oosterwijck
A painting or drawing of an arrangement of objects. Typically including fruit and flowers and objects contrasting with these in texture, such as bowls and glassware.
Examples & Artists Jenny Prinn
Abstract art seeks to break away from traditional representation of physical objects. It explores the relationships of forms and colors.
Art based on popular culture and mass media.

A style of late-modernist or early-postmodern painting and sculpture that emerged in the late 1970s. Neo-expressionists were sometimes called Neue Wilden (The new wild ones)
A technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. (This picture is made of lots of tiny dots!)

THE HISTORY OF
Animation dates back to the early stages of man! This is an Egyptian mural from over 4,000 years ago. Here an animator shows wrestling happening frame by frame.
Buckle your seat belts... big words ahead! Created in 1824, Thaumatropes are small disks with different pictures on each side, such as a bird and a cage, attached to two pieces of string. These were popular in the 19th century.
Other types of animation during this time period were:
This is a disk with It is a round device with several frames drawings evenly spaced of animation printed on a paper strip around the outside of placed around the inside. When you the disk. The device spin the device and look through the would be placed slits a moving image appears. in front of a mirror and spun.
Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs was the first movie made using only hand-drawn animation.
This was like a Zoetrope but used mirrors and light to show images. It was powered by a miniature hot air engine!
If you’d like an example of a stop motion video, have a grownup help you go to Dream Delivered’s website (dreamdelivered.org). On our “How It Works” Page, we made a stop motion video by moving our box and taking lots and lots of pictures!
Today, cartoons are made using hand drawn, stop motion and Computer Generated Images (CGI). Toy Story in 1995 was the first animated to be made fully on the computer. Stop motion is done by creating scene, taking a photo and then moving the scene just a little bit before taking another photo. Each movement helps to tell the story.
Typography is the art of arranging and designing typed words to make what we see easy to read and look good. Typographers do this by choosing or creating fonts. We used a lot of different fonts in this word search. Can you still find all of the words?
