9 Reasons to Study Art in High School - Student Art Guide


Teachers are often asked why students should study Art in high school.

Saul Leiter

Although Edward Steichen exhibited some of Saul Leiter's color photographs at the Museum of Modern Art in 1953, for forty years afterwards they remained virtually unknown to the art world. Leiter moved to New York in 1946 intending to be a painter and through his friendship with the abstract expressionist Richard Pousette-Dart he quickly recognized the creative potential of photography. Though he continued to paint, exhibiting alongside Philip Guston and Willem de Kooning, Leiter's camera became -- like an extension of his arm and mind -- an ever-present interpreter of life in...

Portraits are a celebration of life, we capture a moment in time for posterity. Portraiture is a representation and a legacy;� it is a bridge between generations. A younger generation would find easier to identify with an ancestor seeing his image, generally at the same age they are.

Another option is to create a sculpture, a Portrait bust , and from...

Artists - Painters and Fine Art Paintings

Chalda Maloff - TX 

My art reflects my abiding optimism. I work shapes and colors towards an expressive whole that will have the power to evoke emotion, sensuality, and spirituality. I employ the suggestion of backlighting or inner glow, which I believe elicits a near-universal response of warmth and gratification. My artist's lexicon of transparency, juxtaposition, and spatial ambiguity...

Chinese checkers | The Economist

Correction: Chinese art market Jul 30th 2011

One thing Chinese collectors agree on is the superiority of painting. The highest price ever paid for a sculpture by a living mainland Chinese artist is just over $800,000 (for a stainless-steel work by Zhan Wang), less than a tenth of the highest price paid for a Chinese contemporary picture ($10.1m for an early painting by Mr Zhang).
