What is ACADEMIC ART? What does ACADEMIC ART mean? ACADEMIC ART meaning - ACADEMIC ART definition - ACADEMIC ART explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Academic art, or Academicism, is a style of painting and sculpture produced under the influence of European academies of art. Specifically, academic art is the art and artists influenced by the standards of the French Académie des Beaux-Arts, which practiced under the movements of Neoclassicism and Romanticism, and the art that followed these two movements in the attempt to synthesize both of their styles, and which is best reflected by the paintings of William-Adolphe Bouguereau, Thomas Couture, and Hans Makart. In this context it is often called "academism", "academicism", "L'art pompier", and "eclecticism", and sometimes linked with "historicism" and "syncretism". Young artists spent four years in rigorous training. In France, only students who passed an exam and carried a letter of reference from a noted professor of art were accepted at the academy's school, the École des Beaux-Arts. Drawings and paintings of the nude, called "académies", were the basic building blocks of academic art and the procedure for learning to make them was clearly defined. First, students copied prints after classical sculptures, becoming familiar with the principles of contour, light, and shade. The copy was believed crucial to the academic education; from copying works of past artists one would assimilate their methods of art making. To advance to the next step, and every successive one, students presented drawings for evaluation. If approved, they would then draw from plaster casts of famous classical sculptures. Only after acquiring these skills were artists permitted entrance to classes in which a live model posed. Interestingly, painting was not actually taught at the École des Beaux-Arts until after 1863. To learn to paint with a brush, the student first had to demonstrate proficiency in drawing, which was considered the foundation of academic painting. Only then could the pupil join the studio of an academician and learn how to paint. Throughout the entire process, competitions with a predetermined subject and a specific allotted period of time measured each students' progress. The most famous art competition for students was the Prix de Rome. The winner of the Prix de Rome was awarded a fellowship to study at the Académie française's school at the Villa Medici in Rome for up to five years. To compete, an artist had to be of French nationality, male, under 30 years of age, and single. He had to have met the entrance requirements of the École and have the support of a well-known art teacher. The competition was grueling, involving several stages before the final one, in which 10 competitors were sequestered in studios for 72 days to paint their final history paintings. The winner was essentially assured a successful professional career. As noted, a successful showing at the Salon was a seal of approval for an artist. Artists petitioned the hanging committee for optimal placement "on the line," or at eye level. After the exhibition opened, artists complained if their works were "skyed," or hung too high. The ultimate achievement for the professional artist was election to membership in the Académie française and the right to be known as an academician. Academic art was first criticized for its use of idealism, by Realist artists such as Gustave Courbet, as being based on idealistic clichés and representing mythical and legendary motives while contemporary social concerns were being ignored. Another criticism by Realists was the "false surface" of paintings—the objects depicted looked smooth, slick, and idealized—showing no real texture. The Realist Théodule Ribot worked against this by experimenting with rough, unfinished textures in his painting. Stylistically, the Impressionists, who advocated quickly painting outdoors exactly what the eye sees and the hand puts down, criticized the finished and idealized painting style. Although academic painters began a painting by first making drawings and then painting oil sketches of their subject, the high polish they gave to their drawings seemed to the Impressionists tantamount to a lie. After the oil sketch, the artist would produce the final painting with the academic "fini," changing the painting to meet stylistic standards and attempting to idealize the images and add perfect detail. Similarly, perspective is constructed geometrically on a flat surface and is not really the product of sight, Impressionists disavowed the devotion to mechanical techniques.

Academic art
Academic art, or Academicism, is a style of painting and sculpture produced under the influence of European academies of art.

The art influenced by academies in general is also called "academic art." In this context as new styles are embraced by academics, the new styles come to be considered academic, thus what was at one time a rebellion against academic art becomes academic art.

Fritz Zuber-Buhler’s Academic Art
Fritz Zuber-Buhler (1822 – 1896) was a Swiss artist who painted in the style of Academic Classicism, born at Le Locle in Switzerland. Since its inception, the French academic system, which trained artists beginning at the most rudimentary level, had established itself as the most powerful artistic institution until the latter half of the nineteenth century. Artists trained in the Ecole des Beaux-Arts often found themselves continuing the stylistic tendencies of their masters, intrigued by the public and private prestige it had afforded them. This “academic” style, with its meticulous execution, perfectly composed compositions, classicizing tendencies, and reliance on pre-established and thus, acceptable themes, was created and perpetuated through an intricate system of artistic training under well-established and successful teachers, prestigious awards, and a rigidly juried Salon. Many of these artists were schooled in similar academic traditions and adhered to this style throughout their career, finding success and patronage at the same time. rtists from throughout Europe migrated to Paris, the epicenter of the art world during the middle and end of the nineteenth century, seeking this training with the desire of establishing themselves as prominent artists. Fritz Zuber-Buhler was one of these artists who came to Paris in search of artistic glory, and became part of the large circle of academic artists coming out of the Ecole des Beaux-Arts system. A contemporary of William Bouguereau, Zuber-Buhler’s canvases are indebted to the academic tradition in both their execution and theme, presenting dream-like visions of coquettish women, angelic young children, and hints of a mythological proclivity that created an oeuvre wholly in line with the academic ideas of idealized classicism. His Spirit of the Morning is an example of Zuber-Buhler’s creation of a dream-like realm of fantasy situated in a natural setting, featuring a softly rendered cherubic figure appearing as a fairy while Innocence reflects his interest in idealizing even the peasant children and their surroundings. His choice of imagery displaces reality with its fanciful and romanticized reinterpretation favoring a love of exquisite detail and an emphasis on delicacy.

Andrew L. LaFave – Scrivener, Process, and Finding Art in Academic Writing!
This webinar was presented live on October 5, 2014 for Global Conversations in Doctoral Preparation 2014-2015 Series" (http://globalconversationsindoctoralpreparation.wordpress.com/) APA Citation: Andrew, L. L. (2014, October 5). Scrivener, Process, and Finding Art in Academic Writing! [Webinar]. In Global Conversations in Doctoral Preparation Web Seminar Series. Retrieved from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYTL3QAS0SM After months spent reading, gathering data, and analyzing and thinking about a research project, the time comes to write. But how to proceed? How can you keep track of all this information? Even more importantly, how can you craft a meaningful piece of writing that not only expresses your findings, but does so in an elegant, literary way? In this seminar, I offer one tool and two strategies to transform a doctoral student buried under a mountain of research into a scholar with a polished finished product. The tool is a program called Scrivener, which functions as an all-in-one research tool for organizing relevant literature, analysis, and original writing. The value of being able to use a single computer application to manage everything a project needs from idea to finished work cannot be overstated, and the utility of a tool like Scrivener leads to the first of my two strategies: finding a way to organize your writing. I suggest several possibilities – from outlines to mind-maps to napkin scribblings – to help transform your work from untidy notions into concrete statements. My second strategy draws on scholarly tradition of the nineteenth century to help the more technically-minded among us find ways to express our thoughts in a more fluid, readable, and ultimately more artful way. The prevailing style in academic writing is intentionally obscure, preventing the dissemination of valuable research findings to an audience beyond our colleagues in the academy. This presentation will provide students with concrete strategies to improve the quality of their academic writing. Based on my own experience developing my voice as an emerging scholar, I offer an overview of an all-in-one research and writing application called Scrivener1. Scrivener was originally developed for screen writers and novelists, but the program’s capacity to organize and store literature-based research coupled with an easy-to-use nonlinear word-processing function makes it ideal for academic use. After the overview, I provide a variety of strategies for organizing a writer’s thoughts, including mind-maps and outlines. I conclude with several suggestions for how to avoid the opaque drudgery that weighs down so much academic writing, and provide some guidance on how to turn students’ writing from dreary academic lead into artful, literary gold.

Steven Pinker is one of the world’s leading authorities on language, mind and human nature. A professor of psychology at Harvard, he is the bestselling author of eight books and regularly appears in lists of the world’s top 100 thinkers. On September 25th 2014 he returned to the Intelligence Squared stage to discuss his latest publication 'The Sense of Style', a short and entertaining writing guide for the 21st century. Pinker will argue that bad writing can’t be blamed on the internet, or on “the kids today”. Good writing has always been hard: a performance requiring pretence, empathy, and a drive for coherence. He answered questions such as: how can we overcome the “curse of knowledge”, the difficulty in imagining what it’s like not to know something we do? And how can we distinguish the myths and superstitions about language from helpful rules that enhance clarity and grace? Pinker showed how everyone can improve their mastery of writing and their appreciation of the art. Professor Pinker was in conversation with Ian McEwan, one of Britain’s most acclaimed novelists, who has frequently explored the common ground between art and science.

How to Write the Perfect Essay
***FREE download of one of my successful Harvard essays: https://ivyadvise.com/p/welcome Writing the perfect essay is like drawing the perfect circle. Meaning that no matter what you do you'll always end up with a zero? No, meaning it's impossible, but with the right tools, you can get pretty darn close. You guys requested it, so I thought I'd share some of my best tips and tricks for writing essays. I've been writing essays for almost two decades now, so this video is a long one. Strap yourself in and get ready, 'cause this is about to be a ride. Also, the first essay format I give you comes from my French education on writing essays (i.e. start with a question, develop your ideas, answer the question, open essay up to new question). The second essay format I give you comes from my American education on writing essays (i.e. state a thesis, argue your thesis, restate your thesis). I'm partial to the French way of writing essays, because I think it makes more sense for life (i.e. you have a question you want to answer, you try to answer it, when you do you move on...). However, the American way of writing essays can be helpful for trying to argue a point. Write the way that you think will best suit you in your given circumstance!

Foley makes the case the Art’s critical value is to develop learners that think like Artists which means learners who are creative, curious, that seek questions, develop ideas, and play. For that to happen society will need to stop the pervasive, problematic and cliché messaging that implies that creativity is somehow defined as artistic skill. This shift in perception will give educators the courage to teach for creativity, by focusing on three critical habits that artist employ, 1. Comfort with Ambiguity, 2. Idea Generation, and 3. Transdisciplinary Research. This change can make way for Center’s for Creativity in our schools and museums where ideas are king and curiosity reigns. Cindy Meyers Foley is the Executive Assistant Director and Director of Learning and Experience at the Columbus Museum of Art. Foley worked to reimagine the CMA as a 21st century institution that is transformative, active, and participatory. An institution that impacts the health and growth of the community by cultivating, celebrating and championing creativity. Foley envisioned and led the charge to open the 18,000 sq. ft. Center for Creativity in 2011. In 2013, the museum received the National Medal for Museums in recognition of this work. Foley guest edited and wrote chapters for Intentionality and the Twenty-First-Century Museum, for the summer 2014 Journal of Museum Education. In 2012, Foley received the Greater Columbus Arts Council Community Arts Partnership award for Arts Educator. She was a keynote speaker for the OAEA (Ohio Art Education Association) 2012 Conference. She is on the Faculty of Harvard University’s Future of Learning Summer Institute. Foley is a graduate of the University of Kentucky and The Ohio State University. Prior to joining the Museum, she was with the Institute of Contemporary Art at the Maine College of Art, the Portland Museum of Art, and the Wexner Center for the Arts. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

My name is Emma, and in today's video, I am going to talk a lot about the IELTS test, specifically writing task one. I'm going to teach you about a certain thing you might see on the IELTS, and that's a pie chart. I'm going to explain what a pie chart is, and ways to talk about pie charts in order to improve your vocabulary mark for the IELTS. Many students get really, really confused when they see graphs on the IELTS, and they get really confused trying to talk about numbers, specifically. So, in this video, I'm also going to talk about: How do we describe numbers when we're looking at pie charts? How do we describe percentages? You know, and how can we make our vocabulary very varied? Okay? So, let's get started. The first thing I want to do is talk about: What is a pie chart? So, I have here three different types of graphs. Three different graphs you might see on the IELTS, in the writing section, in the very first part of the writing section. Okay? You might see a picture like this, like this, or like this. So, one of these looks like a pie, something you eat. Which one do you think looks the most like pie? If you said this one, you are correct. This is what we are going to be talking about today. We can call it either a "pie chart" or a "pie graph". Both are correct. You might also see this one, this one is called a line graph; or you might see this, which is called a bar graph. So, let me write that on the board. So, "pie chart", "line graph", and "bar graph". You might also see a process, a diagram, or maybe even a table on the IELTS. But for today, we are only going to be focusing on pie charts. Okay, so what is a pie chart? A pie chart shows us percentages. Okay? So, if we look down here, I have here what I spend my money on. Okay? I want you to imagine each month, all the money I make, all my salary, this is what I spend it on. I spend some of it on rent, I spend some of it on food, I spend some of it on transport or transportation, and I spend some of it on fun. Okay? So, on the IELTS, you might have to describe something like this. It might be more complicated. Sometimes you might actually have two pie graphs or pie charts that you might have to compare and describe, but in this case, let's start out a little bit easier. So, I want you to imagine you're writing the IELTS, and you've been told to describe this pie chart. What are you going to say about it? Okay? Well, the very first thing you should do is you should think about: What does it all mean? And by that, I mean: Think about how much percent is each thing? Okay? So, for example, for cost of living, how much is this? What size does this look like? Although we can't be sure, because I'm not the best artist and this is not a perfect circle, I would say this is about 50%. Okay? And this, what does it look like to you? Maybe 25%. So, food is around 25%. Transport we might say... Let's say 15%. And fun, maybe 10%. Although, we're not sure. So, on the IELTS you might see something like this. You might actually have the percentages written, so you already know what it is, or you might actually have numbers. Okay? So, this might actually be money, and so it might actually say, like, $500 to rent, $200 to food, and so forth. Okay, but the first thing to do is really think about: What are the percentages, here? Okay, so to begin a sentence when we're talking about the pie chart, these are three different sentences that are very great... Really, really good sentences to use on the IELTS when you're talking about pie graphs. The first one is: "According to the chart", you can also say: "We can see from the chart", or "We can see from the pie chart", "The chart shows that", okay? So these are good ways to open up the sentence, and then to actually talk about what you see here.
The Art of Paraphrasing: Avoiding Plagiarism
Seven steps process to paraphrase well, illustrated with an example.
Charles Martin Powell 查爾斯·馬丁·鮑威爾 (1775-1824) Academic Art British
[email protected] Charles Martin Powell Born in Chichester, C M Powell was a self-taught artist, a fact which reflects great credit on him when one considers the beautiful draughtsmanship and ‘professional’ execution of his pictures. Although it is known that he served his apprenticeship as a sailor, it is unclear as to whether or not Powell was ever a member of the Royal Navy. It is possible that he did join the Navy, or was press-ganged into service, and subsequently absconded. A glance at the Royal Academy records between 1807 and 1821 indicates that he moved frequently, occupying no fewer than seven homes over a period of fourteen years, suggesting perhaps that he may well have been avoiding being retaken. It is also noticeable that Powell’s subjects rarely feature naval vessels; when they do appear they are either in the distance or middle-distance of the composition, the foreground being given over to fishing craft and coastal vessels. Nevertheless, it seems unlikely that a marine artist as well known as Powell, with his necessary attachment to the sea, could have managed to escape recapture for long. It is more likely therefore that there are other reasons to explain Powell’s reluctance to settle down in one place for long. One such may have been his interest in travelling. He travelled extensively, painting Plymouth, Southampton, Portsmouth and numerous subjects in the English Channel. He is known to have painted scenes in the Mediterranean and he visited Holland frequently -–indeed, the Dutch marine artists provided much of his inspiration, his works fully reflected the traditional Dutch style of sea painting. Powell married and had eight children. All his recorded addresses were in London: Paddington, Soho, The Haymarket, Baker Street and Montague Square – locations which indicate fluctuating financial fortunes; however he ultimately died penniless aged 49. His London exhibits totalled 40, of which twenty-nine were at the Royal Academy and eleven at the British Institution. Nearly all these pictures were true sea pieces. Although he never benefited from the financial security that a patron might have brought him, he was left free to paint whatever he wished in his own style. His work is rarely on the market, not because of a paucity of numbers, but because of ownership jealously guarded by collectors who have recognised that genuine knowledge of ships renders him superior to many of his contemporaries. Powell had a first-hand understanding of the sea and of how boats move in the water, and he also used to great effect the dramatic play of light and dark, inspired by the 18th century Dutch masters. His work is to be found in the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich; the Shipley Art Gallery, Gateshead and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London 查爾斯·馬丁·鮑威爾C·鮑威爾出生於奇切斯特,是一位自學成才的藝術家,當他考慮美麗的繪畫技巧和他的照片的“專業”執行力時,這一事實反映了他的巨大榮譽。儘管據悉他擔任水手的學徒,但鮑威爾是否曾經是皇家海軍的成員還不清楚。他有可能加入了海軍,或者被迫投入使用,隨後潛逃。從1807年到1821年的皇家藝術學院記錄顯示,他經常搬家,在十四年的時間裡佔據了不少於七所房屋,這也許意味著他很可能已經避免被重新佔領。同樣值得注意的是,鮑威爾的題材很少具有海軍艦艇的特徵。當他們確實出現時,他們要么在距離或中距離的構圖,前景被交給漁船和沿海船隻。 儘管如此,像鮑威爾這樣有名的海洋藝術家似乎不太可能以他對海洋的必要依附,可能已經設法避免長久奪回。因此,更有可能的是,還有其他原因可以解釋鮑威爾不願長期在一個地方定居下來的原因。 其中之一可能是他對旅行的興趣。他廣泛地旅行,在英吉利海峽繪畫普利茅斯,南安普敦,朴茨茅斯和眾多科目。他被稱為在地中海畫了場景,他經常訪問荷蘭 - 荷蘭海洋藝術家提供了很多靈感,他的作品充分體現了傳統荷蘭風格的海上繪畫。 鮑威爾結婚並有八個孩子。他所有的錄音地址都在倫敦:帕丁頓,蘇豪區,乾草市場,貝克街和蒙塔古廣場 - 這些地點表明財政狀況波動;但他最終死於49歲身無分文。 他的倫敦展品共有40件,其中29件在皇家藝術學院,11家在英國學院。幾乎所有這些照片都是真正的海洋作品。雖然他從來沒有從贊助人可能給他帶來的經濟保障中受益,但他可以自由地用自己的風格畫出他想要的任何東西。他的作品很少在市場上出現,並不是因為數量不足,而是因為收藏家的嫉妒守護著所有權,他們認識到真正的船隻知識使他比許多同時代人更優秀。鮑威爾第一時間了解大海以及船隻在水中的運動方式,他也習慣於在十八世紀的荷蘭大師的鼓舞下,發揮光明和黑暗的戲劇性。 他的作品將在格林威治的國家海事博物館中發現;希普利美術館,蓋茨黑德和倫敦維多利亞和阿爾伯特博物館
