In Unit 1, I really cannot seem to forget the first slide that was shown by Sir Aljohn. It
was a quote saying that man is the measure of all things which literally means that
humans hold the most value among all species. It also did not just tackle the definition
of humanities but how significant and huge the contributions of humanities are as well.
I have learned in this unit that obtaining knowledge in this field of study will enable us
to better understand who we are, our identity as a person, a society, and a culture. If
we are trying to create a world worth living in, a fuller understanding of the perspective
of ourselves is essential.
Unit 2 on the other hand, is where the subject of an artwork was discussed. But before
that, we were first informed that some artworks have subjects and some do not. The
art pieces which use a specific subject is called representational art or objective art;
while those that have no subjects are called non-representational or non-objective art.
Furthermore, In artwork, the subject matter would vary upon what the artist has
chosen to paint, draw or sculpt. The sources of subjects may be nature, people (who
are the most interesting subject), history, legends, religion, mythology, dreams and
fantasy, and technology. After the artist has decided on the source of the subject of
his artwork, he is now ready to identify the method of how he wants his artwork to be
presented to his viewers. Their choice of a method may depend upon his expertise,
exposure to certain art pieces, or simply of his personal preferences. Some of the
ways on how an artist presents his subject to his audience are naturalism, realism,
abstraction, symbolism, fauvism, dadaism, futurism, surrealism, and expressionism.
While, in Unit 3, it refers more on the process of creating the art work, the materials
and equipment needed, the techniques applied as well as how to preserve so that it
can be appreciated and utilized for a long period of time. In this part, I have also
learned The Different Media of the Visual Arts, Architecture, Music, Dance, Drama,
Theatre and Cinema as well as its genres and types. It also highlighted the The
Process of Creating Sculptures, Literature and the Combined Arts and the People
Behind Motion Pictures.
In conclusion, this course, this subject Art Appreciation intensified and heightened my
interest in the arts and humanities
