Art Works and Artists
The sheer volume of art pieces and artists spanning different eras and cultures can be overwhelming for students. We will guide students through this extensive knowledge using memorization techniques, making the task more manageable.
Art History requires an understanding of the historical, cultural, political, and personal context surrounding the creation of art. We take an integrated approach to teaching, interweaving the study of art with its historical context.
Interpretation and Analysis
Interpreting and analyzing art can be subjective and complex. Students often struggle with understanding the nuances and hidden meanings in art. Our tutors guide students on how to read, interpret, and analyze art effectively.
Art History often requires persuasive argumentation to support one's interpretation of an artwork. We conduct regular practice sessions focusing on crafting strong arguments and effective communication skills.
Art History demands a certain level of visual literacy, or the ability to interpret and understand visual information. We offer exercises and activities that help students hone their visual literacy, such as interpreting symbols and motifs.
Students may struggle with finding reliable sources and understanding complex texts. We assist students in honing their research skills, guiding them to use reputable sources and teaching them how to summarize critical information.
Unlike a chronological approach that can become overwhelming, organizing the course around specific themes or movements can help students understand and remember the material more effectively.
Art cannot be separated from its historical, cultural, and political context. Each lesson can incorporate elements of the historical period, such as key events, societal norms, and prevalent ideologies, which shaped the art of the time.
Art Criticism Method
The Feldman’s Model of Art Criticism (Description, Analysis, Interpretation, and Judgment) can be used to guide students on how to evaluate an artwork systematically and critically.
Regularly incorporating visual analysis exercises, where students describe and interpret artworks without prior information, can help build their visual literacy skills.
Encourage students to compare and contrast different artworks. This process helps students develop critical thinking and understand the differences and similarities between different periods, styles, and artists.
Discussion and Debates
Stimulate discussions and debates on different interpretations of art pieces. This method promotes critical thinking and active engagement.
