- looking at the History of the genres and art we love today.
Over the last year we have brought you exciting articles and features
from the various genres of Art. We are now going to move into the second wave of this Project, by working through chronologically.
What we now want is for anyone with any interest in Art History to sign up!
- Who we want -
This doesn't need to be your career. Or even the artwork you create today.
Maybe you were the one who did the random major in French Sculpture, that you never thought you'd use?
Or you're the young professional who makes their living as a photographer / investment banker / waitress, but still remembers that paper you did on Picasso in high school, and you do so love that crazy fella?
Or you were the teenager that listened to punk and heavy metal, but had secretly painted your room a dusky papyrus-beige and stenciled gold hieroglyphics all along the wall?
(Extra credit to whoever can guess which one of these was me )
If this sounds like you (or even if it's nothing like you) then get your name down!
- How to get involved -
Are you mad about Michelangelo? Crazy for crotchet? Dippy for Dali? Or passionate about Pointillism?
Then we want to hear from YOU!
Simply comment on this Journal with your area of expertise and we will start to create a timeline. You can pick any genre, any date, any artist, any movement, any medium, anything!!
- Creating a Project -
This is a living, breathing organism. We have the most enthusiastic Art buffs in the world on this site, and we intend to share the wealth!
I'll put out some suggestions for people to pick, but the rest is up to you!
Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask me or one of our fantastic team!
