Gurney Journey: Houding

Gurney Journey: Houding | Plein Air and Other Cool Art Stuff | Scoop.it
"Houding" is a term from the art theory of the Dutch Golden Age which has no equivalent in English. But like a lot of foreign art terms, figuring out what it means can give us an insight into the thought process of artists from previous traditions.

Christiana Katsarou's curator insight, November 30, 8:39 AM

We can understand the immense value of involving art and poetry in language learning more and more...Regarding languages like Greek,  I observe more and more that  since it has a significant amount of idioms and more elaborated vocabulary tightly bonded with a socio-cultural context  that learners are often not in contact with, all activities with an artistic context relax their spirit and prepare them for new knowledge assimilation even without their full knowledge that this is happening.. Folk tales, proverbs, expressions, anecdotes, customs still kept transfused in a artistic context can be of great learning value. 

analise moreno's curator insight, November 30, 6:44 PM

Language is definitely inspired by poetry infact poetry can be written by any language and in any order, poetry has it's own language.

Tandoo Barcelona's curator insight, December 2, 5:03 AM

This article will tell you how performing creativity can help you in learning languages! You don't believe?! Give it a try! (Stefanie)

Learn How to "Paint Like You"

Learn How to "Paint Like You" | Plein Air and Other Cool Art Stuff | Scoop.it
George Gallo gives oil painting instructions in his new book, of which he says, “The point isn’t for you to learn to paint like me, but for you to learn to paint like you.”
Karen Bowden's insight:

"When it comes to learning how to paint, many of you know that a good way to start is by copying the work of those who are much more experienced, and learning directly from them. This teaches you not only the process of how to get from point A to point B, but also how to manipulate the paint so that you can begin creating works that are uniquely yours."

"I'm always experimenting with paint, and I take the very act of painting as an experiment in and of itself," says the Montana painter. "With painting every day, some you win and some you lose. Failing is just part of the process, and in failing I learn a lot more than when I win as I turn it over and over in my mind, how I can avoid the same pitfalls in the next piece."
