TAPPS: A Web site on how to understand art, specifically for grades 4 through 6 (although younger and older boys and girls are invited).
We shall define certain terms and apply these terms to artworks. Then, we shall better understand how the artist used these terms to create: Theatre, Architecture, Painting, Photography, and Sculpture.
All of society uses art for its support in one form or another. We call this "aesthetics" or recognizing beauty. "Beauty" can be interpreted individually. However, certain guidelines are needed. Thus, we need objective terms to guide our understanding of the artwork.
All artworks deepen an understanding of why all people have the need and desire to create. An analysis of artworks can lead to a sharpened awareness of the construction of art. Then, we can understand how the artist solved his problem in putting his creation together into a whole object. Whether you are using your imagination to play a game or to solve a problem, you are using the same part of your brain as an artist does.
This TAPPS Web site can guide you to a better knowledge of how to look at all kinds of art, so you, too, can become an "artist."
