Designed for students who have little or no knowledge of the arts, this well-illustrated, basic handbook of terms and concepts provides a unique introduction to aesthetic perception -- what to look and listen for in works of visual art, music, theatre, dance, film, landscape architecture, architecture, and literature. It shows them how to build on cognitive/perceptual skills they already have to develop discriminating artistic perception for approaching, analyzing, and evaluating works of art -- and to think critically about how their relationship with the arts might enrich their quality of life.From the Back Cover:
Buildings, pictures, sculptures, music, drama, literature, dances, and landscapes confront us at every turn and give our lives richness and diversity. Enjoying and getting the most from relationships with works of art depend on knowing what to see and hear in them. The more we understand about cathedrals, paintings, poems, and plays, the more exciting and interesting our experiences become.
Perceiving the Arts offers readers a foundation for understanding the details of art and architecture by introducing terminology that acts as a bridge into the challenging and rewarding world of artistic perception.
