Dear Art Educators,
Nothing jumped out at me this morning for today's quotes - so I decided to
pick a few of the "Art is..." quotes:
Bunki Kramer does this with her students (and I have seen other teachers
pick up on it, too)
Art is an intersection of many human needs. (Carl Andre)
Art is not a mirror held up to reality, but a hammer with which to shape it.
Art is the work of a person, a human being, who is free to take into himself
what he sees outside and from his free center put his human stamp on it.
From my site:
"Art is not what you see, but what you make others see." ~ Edgar Degas
"Art is either plagiarism or revolution." ~ Paul Gaugin
"Art is skill, that is the first meaning of the word." ~ Eric Gill
"Art is everywhere, except it has to pass through a creative mind."
~ Louise Nevelson
"Art is a lie that helps us to realize the truth." ~ Pablo Picasso
"Art is contemplation. It is the pleasure of the mind which searches into
nature and which there divines the spirit of which Nature herself is
animated." ~ Auguste Rodin
"Art is the signature of civilizations." ~ Beverly Sills
Looks like Getty is down for a spell again. I'm sure it will be back up
running again. Just keep checking the site.
