Art Tip of the Week, From the Katonah Art Center

KATONAH, N.Y. -- The Katonah Art Center wants to give you and your child a way to spend time out from under the glare of the television. Take a seat, grab some utensils and practice the art tip of this week, given by Sarah Miller, the manager of the Art Center. 

“The textbook definition to a completed art product is something that has reached a level of accomplished unity. This can be obtained by the artists' consideration and organization of numerous elements such as: line, value, shape, texture and color. The sequence, organization and strength of these elements are personal preference to the artist, making each artist or artwork unique. Just like the uniqueness of a snowflake, no two brush-strokes can ever be the same. With that being said, the process of art-making is a unique reflection of oneself, making it equally as important as a unified product, 1+1=1.”

“Project: Take time to see, absorb and think about art. Art teaches us to take our time and closely notice the details in life. Art also demonstrates different ways to organize and gather these elements as a whole. Consider how a famous work was constructed, choose some strong visual elements and meet up at the kitchen table for some art-making inspiration. Did you know that most medical schools require surgeons to study art history to develop the way they see?”
