World History of Art

The World History of Art course for 8th – 9th Form pupils is an important one in our School as it fosters in children an appreciation of beauty, to distinguish the tasteful from the tasteless, goodness from foolishness and to learn and evaluate the culture of their own country as well as the cultural heritage of world civilisations.

Local and world history of art in its various guises is studied on the course: literature, fine art, applied art, architecture, music, cinema, theatre as well as folk traditions.

As the subject itself develops erudition in pupils, clarity is required.

More and more often in lessons we have recourse to electronic encyclopaedias, multimedia programmes and we use the internet. Collections of illustrative material are always being added to. Images are displayed on plasma monitors thereby making lessons interesting and visually pleasing.

The use of ICT in the course of my teaching allows me to base the learning process on principles of creativity, variety and freedom of choice, to encourage pupils’ interest in the subject and to create a comfortable microclimate in the classroom.

Using computers and multimedia technology facilitate the resolution of a whole range of issues:

  • To broaden information space horizons;
  • To organize in and out of class self-study;
  • To bring education to life via principles of creativity, variety and freedom of choice;
  • To raise awareness of and interest in the subject of World History of Art.
     

By creating a comfortable microclimate in the classroom through co-operation and partnership between teacher and pupil a process of interactive creativity is formed.

Aside from this, artistic design and research opportunities using multimedia presentations or publication are expanded too. Pupils engross themselves with interest and desire in creative tasks that are based on group and individual research and artistic presentation of their work. as a rule the creative works of pupils are displayed during lessons. Here are the titles of but a few works and projects pupils have produced:

  • If portraits could speak (creativity of Russian portrait artist OrestKiprenski), project carried out by 9th Form pupils;
  • 10 versions of Jaconda’s smile, creative work of 8th Form pupils;
  • The great Flemish artists (P. Rubens and A. van Dyke), creative work of 8th Form pupils;
  • … My talent is closer to landscape … (Life and works of V.D. Polenov), project completed by 9th Form pupils.
     

Collections of creative works are constantly being added to and there are great prospects for the future. Thus this year alone 9th Form pupils contributed their exam reports:

  • History of creating the first Moscow Kremlin building works;
  • Creating moods in C. Monet’s landscapes’
  • Mysteries and idiosyncrasies in S. Dali’s portraits.
