Fine Arts - Secondary

Visual arts:

  • Art and artists can reflect the political time in which they live. Give an example of an artist who has used his/her skill and talent to reflect the times around him/her. What was (s)he trying to express? Who was his/her audience? ( student prisoners, 2nd World War, Dutch masters)

  • Research a well-known artist and explain how his/her life influenced his/her work ( e.g. Van Gogh)

  • The meaning behind many works of art are obscure. Choose any painting that appeals to you and explain and defend what you think the true meaning is.





Music:

  • How do the different eras of music reflect the changes in society and culture that influenced the way music was written and performed?

  • Does the playing or listening to music have any value besides enjoyment?
