Different Methods in Art  Art is the process of arranging elements in a way that deliberately appeals to the senses or emotions. It  encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations, and modes of expression including Painting, Music,  Sculpture, Dance, literature and Performing arts.   Painting is the applying of paint, pigment, color or other medium to a surface or base. In art, the term describes  both the act and the result, which is called a painting. Paintings may be on surfaces such as walls, paper, canvas,  wood, glass, lacquer, clay or concrete. Paintings may be decorated with gold leaf, and some modern paintings  incorporate other materials including sand, clay, and scraps of paper. Paint can be applied with brushes, spoons,  sprayed, splashed, dropped or poured as well as other application methods onto the surface.    Painting is an expression with different forms. Drawing, Composition or Abstraction may be used to show the  intention of the painter or artist. Paintings can be naturalistic such as landscapes and representational as in a still  life, photographic or abstract, be loaded with narrative content, such as symbolism, emotion or political in nature.  Some Painting’s that should be studied include  Mona Lisa, Impression, Sunrise, Male and Female  and  A Country  Wedding.  Leonardo da Vinci's  Mona Lisa  is a 16th century portrait painted in oil on a poplar panel during the Italian  Renaissance. The painting is a half-length portrait and depicts a woman with an enigmatic expression. The  vagueness in the models expression along with restrained forms and optical illusion have contributed to the  painting's fascination. Few other works of art have been subject to as much scrutiny, study, mythologizing, and  parody.  Impression, Sunrise  is a painting by Claude Monet in 1872, for which the Impressionist movement was  named. Its subject is the harbor of Le Havre in France, using very loose brush strokes that suggest rather than  delineate it.   Male and Female  is oil on canvas by Jackson Pollock in 1942. Pollok’s style by the mid 1940s was  painting in a completely abstract manner, and the `drip and splash' style emerged Instead of using the traditional  easel he affixed his canvas to the floor or the wall and poured and dripped his paint from a can; instead of using  brushes he manipulated it with `sticks, trowels or knives' sometimes gaining an impasto, where the paint is laid on  thickly, by an admixture of `sand, broken glass or other foreign matter'.   A Country Wedding,  by Anna Mary  Robertson Moses better known as "Grandma Moses”, in 1951 is an Oil on canvas. Grandma Moses was a

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
