Artistic Research

Artistic research helps artists understand and challenge various perspectives. It gives rise to a new way of seeing things and fosters innovation. Without artistic research, the development of art will be gradual and lack passion.

We believe in a cross-disciplinary approach. The more knowledge and expertise you have in other branches, the more it shows up in your art.

collaboration & process driven

Casco supports artists in freely collaborating with one another. We help facilitate a smooth process. Working with other artists is an experience that every young and budding artist needs to have in their artistic journey.

Arts Collaboratory

Our Arts Collaboratory is something that we take a lot of pride in. It has been done by a group of highly passionate artists that have gracefully worked together and poured their individual artistic genius into the Arts Collaboratory.

The aim of our work is to contribute to forming non-capitalist cultures!

The Comprehensive Visual Art Guide

Visual Art

Visual artists like Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, and Auguste Rodin typically come to mind when the word “art forms” is used. However, the phrase includes a variety of artistic forms outside paintings, such as sculptures, cinema, buildings, and cinematography. Even though fields like fabric artists, abstract art, and theatrical performances aren’t typically classified as fine arts, nevertheless undoubtedly have some similarities with them. There are also the applicable artists, which also are categorized as visual arts and include things like clothing, commercial, and motion graphics.

Early Examples of Visual Art

Even before their talking or wearing things, humans were already producing art. Several of the most significant ancient works of art have been found at the Lascaux and Chauvet caverns. These caverns, which date back to roughly 1.3 thousand years old, include amazing carvings of reindeer, buffalo, ponies, and cattle, which archaeologists have discovered!

Visual Art

Paintings depicting creatures and hunt landscapes predominated during the time, but there are also examples of human faces and representations of what appear to be households or gatherer societies. Several tens of thousands of years later, in the graves of the ancient Egyptians, we discover more ordered drawings of line drawings. You may see a stunning sculpture of Ramses II’s queen Nefertari being decked by the goddess Isis in the king’s enormous shrine.

Ancient Greeks revolutionized graphic current cultural surroundings on the opposite side of the spectrum, but tragically, many of their achievements have now vanished. The Hellenistic representations of the Fayum corpse pictures are among the notable characteristics of classical antiquity that have survived.

Renaissance to Modern Days

Although illustrated texts make up the majority of European visual culture throughout the Middle Ages, the Renaissance that followed is an aesthetic gold mine for art appreciation majors. Giotto and Leonardo da Vinci were among the artists who emerged during this time, which spans the twelfth and sixteenth centuries.

Dutch artists like Rembrandt ruled the eighteenth century, but the initial significant post-Renaissance style was the Italian-obsessed Baroque, which had important painters like Caravaggio. However, with the rise of Impressionists in the nineteenth century, artistic practice underwent almost a total transformation.

illustrated texts

Several of the scholastic criteria of visual painting were disregarded by French mavericks such as Paul Cézanne, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Claude Monet as they created their own spontaneously stroked manner. In contrast to the contrived and formal classroom, painters in this period were more concerned with portraying the stunning scenery of the surrounding world.

Whereas the German artists were becoming melancholy in their creative approach, Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso, two of their sculptural equivalents, were preoccupied on the volumes and expanse of buildings.

Beach Landscape

It will get you started with drawing and color theory. Try to take inspiration from a recent beach you visited, or give your brain some work and imagine a typical seaside view. Then, if you have a beach nearby, take a stroll down and draw something which attracts your eye. By doing this exercise, you can play with different colors, landscapes, houses, the colors and textures of the waves, and many more. You can also add vegetation, like palm trees, bushes, etc., by the shore.

Cartoon character or portrait

Art Projects to Unleash Your Creative Side

Art Projects

Art is about displaying your uniqueness, but it is also possible to create anything truly amazing when different individuals combine their abilities. Children, teenagers, and parents may all participate in these group art installations, and the outcomes are ones that everybody can be pleased with.

Pom-poms stacked into a bush

Making yarn pom-poms is simple and a fantastic place of using up leftover fabric. Every kid should provide one or a few, which you should then attach to a Styrofoam shape to create a cute miniature branch.

Assemble a drip mural

Let them individually create a “drip” artwork for this group art installation, then layer them together to create a large final painting.

Tile silhouettes should border the hallway

This is an interesting approach to honoring a graduation ceremony. Create colorful terracotta bricks for the pupils to cover the wooden figures that they have carved out.

Kids’ initial drawings of their city skylines serve as the foundation for this group endeavor. Finally, they individually pick their most beloved structure and include it in a broader metropolis.

Work together on a canvas

Just let a phrase or a word that is significant to your pupils’ learning be surrounded by vibrant colors. Allow children to add the colors and shapes after repainting the words first. Continue by straightening any corners that have crossed any boundaries.

Put flowers in a large vase

Use Vincent van Gogh as your motivation and assign every pupil to make a lovely impressionistic paper blossom. Then, create a sizable paper flower, mount it on a board or a whiteboard, and load it with all of your lovely flowers!

Every child should select a word and create a drawing or painting to depict it. We adore how this sample includes the handprints and fingers of the pupils.
