  • Artists' Statement In conjuring up ways of learning, the human mind begins to think about school and the associated lectures, textbooks, projects, and essays, but rarely is the possibility of art in education considered. While art’s importance manifests itself in a multi-faceted fashion, it’s value to society as a whole is enhanced by its ability to facilitate learning. In particular, photographic artwork of public places can instruct an audience in a range of subjects and phenomena. The photographic collection of the Meinel Optical Sciences building at the University of Arizona was rendered by the artists to depict and chronicle scientific properties of optical illusions such as reflection, movement, light, and crystalline properties. Specifically, we sought out scenes that would clearly demonstrate these properties to the casual observer along with an aesthetically pleasing, artistic flair. Upon the completion of the photo shoot, we were exceedingly delighted with the quality of the images, as they incorporated various fundamental principles of composition while also showing our central theme. Overall, artwork aids in the learning process with a visual presentation of concepts which can pique the interest of those that might not otherwise study a subject. In visually displaying a concept or idea, art can supplements one’s knowledge of a particular subject in a manner that a textbook’s account cannot reveal. Capturing various photos of the telescope on display, the image we selected for the blog was a relatively easy choice with its clarity of focus and excellent angle. For instance, the photograph entitled Telescopes Perception illustrates the reflective properties of the internal mirrors and lenses as the visible full spectrum of light called “color aberrations” appears at the bottom right of the photograph due to the angle of the sun’s rays. While the scientific properties of lenses and light can be studied mathematically in any physics textbook, the actual observance of this phenomenon remains breathtaking, of which mere words on a page do not do justice to the aura of the image. Thus, artwork further enhances the learning process beyond a textbook as it instructs us about perspective and how the eye sees optical illusions. In addition to art aiding in visual education, it also provides education to laypersons in a subject that they may not otherwise be inclined to study. To demonstrate this function of art, we took multiple photos of the crystal in front of the building, and choose the final photograph based on the outstanding framing and positioning of the elements of composition. Within the photograph entitled Crystalline Structures (View 1), the casual observer astutely notices that crystals exemplify translucent qualities, remain smooth to the touch, and are broken along jagged, lattice structured lines. Thus, artwork (photograph) allows non-science experts to examine the properties of crystals, a subject they would not usually study, broadening their minds with visual media. Rather than presenting the viewer with an overtly technical and mathematical explanation of the molecular structure of crystals, this artwork creates a sense of understanding by means of the physical observations with an individual’s own eyes. Due to art’s ability to help us learn visually, it can broaden one’s knowledge base, and serves as an indispensible resource to society, demonstrated by the artistic creations in the photo blog ‘Art Helps Us Learn’. Ultimately, after screening through thirty photographs, we opted to utilize nine images in the photo blog that reflected the theme most clearly using accepted principles of art. Often overlooked in place of formalism, beauty, and idea, art’s facilitation of learning cannot be ignored in the consideration of the time honored question: “Why does art matter?” In fact, many natural phenomena like optical illusions would be stripped of their splendor and sublime beauty without art.

  • joy liuart educator ooooooo My background is in developing and teaching art, visual culture, and multimedia curriculum and programs for schools and museums in the United States and abroad. I have taught in youth homes, detention centers, prisons, and various youth and community organizations. Aside from teaching art theory and principles, I use art and digital mediums to teach and explore different learning and subject areas such as literacy, environmental issues, and life-skills.
  • exploring art and visual cultureUniversity of Arizona
  • exploring art and visual cultureUniversity of ArizonaI taught a semester-long course for undergraduate studentsages 17-26. The course objects ranged from understandingart/visual culture in relationship to society to becoming familiarthe process of making art.The students worked individually or in groups, discussing, writing,and creating in a variety of mediums (blockprinting,photography, digital blogging, drawing, journal writing, etc).Examples of their work follows:
  • block printingtheme: social change
  • vision and voice: photobloggingtheme: why does art matter?
  • art, literacy, & life skillsdiou liou, taiwan

  • photovoicesisterhoods: visitation valley and sunnydale boys&girls club Sisterhoods is a violence prevention group for girls ages 8-12 in two rival, gang neighborhoods. QuickTime™ and a I developed and facilitated decompressor are needed to see this picture. a 12-week photography, art and multimedia education program.
  • The goal of Sisterhoods was to build healthy relationshipsbetween girls from Sunnydale and Visitation Valley, reduceviolent behavior in these communities, and empower girls toarticulate and advocate for the needs of their communitiesthrough photography and art education.
  • In February 20, 2010 the project was showcased in My San Francisco: ANeighborhood Mashup, which featuring a broad spectrum of media producedby young artists affiliated with six local community-based organizations.
  • center of creative photographycube-it-up! Cube-it-up! is a fun gallery, museum or classroom activity as well as an interactive teaching and learning tool for participants of all ages. Its aim is to allow participants to explore the fundamental principles and elements of photography through observation, drawing, sculpture, and design. A detailed activity outline, lesson plan and Teaching Aid also accompany the interactive learning tool!
