A gallery visit? Leave the children at home, says top artist

A gallery visit? Leave the children at home, says top artist | Young Artists Take Over Technology | Scoop.it

 

Taking children to art galleries is a "total waste of time", according to one of Britain's top artists.

Valerie York's insight:

But Beth Schneider, head of learning at London's Royal Academy of Arts, said it's "valuable" to stimulate children with art. "I don't think it diminishes the accomplishment or complexity that great works of art can have". She added: "No one would say you shouldn't take a child to a science or natural history museum because they don't understand what they're seeing at the level of the greatest in the world. Everyone comes at their own level."

Homo erectus engraving could re-write human history, and might show art began 300,000 years earlier than we knew

Homo erectus engraving could re-write human history, and might show art began 300,000 years earlier than we knew | Young Artists Take Over Technology | Scoop.it
A zig-zag, drawn on a shell, could re-write our entire understanding of human origins and art. The pattern, drawn by a homo erectus as long as 540,000 years ago and found recently by an Australian researcher, could change all understandings of our early ancestors.
Valerie York's insight:

We have been making art I long time, people. It is the longest running form of self- expression, communication, and ornamentation. We might have worn clothing to protect ourselves but we wanted to look good too, fashion-baby! Art is big and it is not going away.

What Makes Art Priceless? | Wonderopolis | Young Artists Take Over Technology | Scoop.it
Valerie York's insight:

The point is that the things you create are incredibly valuable to those who love you…and they usually wouldn’t part with them for any amount of money. That makes your art priceless!

Not all great works of art are priceless, though. Many famous paintings have been sold for tremendous sums of money over the years.
