Rhanni Jade McCosker's insight:

Today we are going to London! Courtauld Gallery is part of London's Museum Mile, and the interactive gallery that is provided via the website allows us to explore every piece of art it holds. Access the Virtual Gallery by clicking into the link on the left of the page 'Gallery' and then 'Virtual Gallery'.

 

Have a look around the gallery and select a piece that you enjoy. Ensure you can see the details of the art as some photo's are unreadable. Complete the following questions based on your chosen piece. Keep in mind you may need to access the class text, or online resources for further research. Reference everything you use. 

 

1) For your chosen piece, identify the artist, the time period and its movement.

 

2) Describe how you know your chosen piece is part of its movement, in relation to subject matter, medium and style.

Steal Like An Artist: Austin Kleon at TEDxKC - YouTube

Design is purpose-driven artistic creativity that links artistic and technological innovation. It is an integral component of how a society represents itself...
Rhanni Jade McCosker's insight:

A brilliantly delivered presentation that highlights the fact that nothing new, is ever truly original. Most art we see has come from an inspiring idea that was stolen, tastefully of course. Artist's are continuously drawing on the stimulus around them, taking the best bits and then developing them into something that means something to them. I can't stress how important it is to take advantage of the best sources of inspiration around you; that is those who have done it before, and done it well. Remember guys, when your mind is in a knot, 'stealing like an artist' may just be the best way to come up with something of your own.
