Visual Language - Understanding Abstraction
In Your Classroom
Visual language—which is often abstract rather than representational--can sometimes communicate more effectively and efficiently than words. A multimedia tour through abstract art, its signs and symbols, is followed by a hands-on art project designed to demystify abstraction. Participants use drawing and paper folding techniques to create an abstract three-dimensional form that conveys an aspect of their personal identity.
At Lynden: Understanding Abstract Sculpture
A mini-tour explores the language sculptors use to express their ideas and feelings. In the studio, students participate in a team-building sculpture project to learn how an understanding of simple art elements—form, line, color--can help us decode the visual language an artist uses to communicate.
