For the purpose of our VOL.4 workshop on Abstract Art, we looked at a whole bunch of Abstract Expressionism. We wanted to show that Abstract Art is not representations of people, objects nor landscape. Rather it is made up of shapes, colors, and lines. We handed out cut out paper hearts and asked them to raise it when they saw a painting they liked in the slideshow. They reacted to the art they saw purely and with delight. This was a fun exercise. Even a 4 year-old learned and was using the word Abstract Art by the end of the workshop!
Installation Art is a 3-D art created in a space. It often changes the way we see that space.
THREE-DIMENSIONAL: Things that have shapes, things that are not flat
SPACE: And area or a room that you can move around in
TEXTURE: The way things feel on the outside. Like, smooth, rough, bumpy, fuzzy, sandy
