Art History Presentations
Hey everyone, I wanted to get your opinion on something!
I'm a history major with an art history minor, and to keep my art history knowledge alive, I was thinking about writing short articles and making small powerpoint presentations about all the major art movements.
Who would be interested in these? They would be free for anyone who wanted them, and they would be brief little reports and slide shows. I may combine the slideshows and essays into PDFs so they could be viewed as a sort of ebook.
Let me know if you're interested Where I first studied art, we were taught to have historical backgrounds in order to be successful artists, and I think it was a great way of educating people. I'd really love to be able to give basic information to artists or people who are interested in art. You can never have too much knowledge!
That sounds really cool. Although I studied art it was such a long time ago I barely remember any of the history side of things, especially the ones that I was less interested. Now though I wish I knew more as I run an Art group every Monday and it would be nice to refresh my knowledge so I can share it with the clients I work with. I recently had a great time digging around the internet for some Max Ernst to show a client who was working on an abstract/surreal pic that had a v similar feel to one of his paintings.
I think that what you have here is a goldmine for elementary schools and high schools all over the country. I don't know much about marketing but, what if you did about an 8 to 10 project portfolio and approached school boards all over. Or maybe approaching a marketing company would work better. Just an idea. History was always so boring for me in school. To have individual stories, told by someone not my teacher or from my history book-and pictoral to boot would help alot. And you could invest the money you made on it for a better retirement.
That's a good idea. Now I just need to decide on a format...
PDF with pictures
Powerpoint with notes
Powerpoint with vocal recordings
This sound like a great idea.
I think the best format would be PDFs with pictures - that way people can read them anywhere. (computers, e-readers or print them out)
sorry, I can't help you with format. Not that savy. Hope others can. let me say though that whatever the marketing gurus say to charge, I would go under that by some to ensure that you sell alot.
You could start your own U tube channel and have a wee blog that connected to the classroom.Home-school groups might be interested to.
They would be really interesting. I agree with Arty Kitkat.
I did Art History at Uni, but have fallen out of reading up lately so I would love to read them.
This would be AMAZING! I would be completely interested! =^_^= I love the YouTube idea posed by Debs. I would totally watch and subscribe.
I'll have to consider Youtube presentations then. I wasn't sure they'd really get many views... but then again, there are groups like smART History that have videos discussing art.
this was a requirement for my muesuem studies major. it is sooooooooo hard
