The Variance between Art Style, School and Movements

Understanding the Artspeak

You’ll go across the words style, school, and movement consistently in the field of arts. However, what are their differences with each other? Art writers and historians might have different definitions of these terms and can be utilized interchangeably. But there are understated variances in their use.

The Style

Art styleThe term “Style” refers to different facets of art. But it can certainly mean the method utilized to make the artwork.

For instance, there’s what we call Pointillism, which is a technique of painting through a small dots of color and permitting color combination to appear to the viewer’s sight. Style also refers to the fundamental viewpoint in arrears of the artwork. It can also refer to the type of expression incorporated by the artist.

For example, Metaphysical Painting inclines to be a classic architecture in slanted perspective, with an odd object positioned around the space of the image and with an absence of folks.

The School

School is a bloc of artists who had the same style, share the same instructors, or have the same objectives. They are usually found at the same location.

During the 16th century, the Venetian school of painting can be distinguished from other schools in Europe.  The Venetian painting was developed from the school of Padua and the commencement of oil-painting methods was from the Netherlands school. The masterpiece of Venetian painters like Giorgione, Titan, and Belini family is categorized by a painterly slant and the abundance of the colors utilized.

Art SchoolTo have a comparison, the Florentine school was identified by a strong preoccupation with line and draftsmanship.

From the Middle Ages ‘til the 18th century, schools of art are usually named for the city or region around which they are located.

The novice scheme, through which fresh artists learned the craft, safeguarded that art or styles were sustained from master to novice.

Even the Nabis was created by a little group of similarly minded artists, like Pierre Bonard and Paul Serusier, who demonstrated their masterpieces together during the years 1891 and 1900. The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood in England had initially reserved their existence concealed. The group had a regular meeting to brainstorm their perspective for art, concentrating on some vital areas – the social repercussion of their masterpiece, the necessity for synthesis in an art which could permit “art for the people”, the importance of science, and possibilities made through mysticism and representation. Following the publication of their platform written by Maurice Denis, and their first exposition in the year 1891, additional artists fused with the group. Their ultimate joint exhibition was on the year 1899, after which the school commenced disbanding.

The Movement

It’s a group of artists who share the same style, subject or ideology towards their art. Not like a school, it’s needless for their artists to be in the location alike, or even in communication with one another. Taking for instance, Pop Art is a movement that comprises the masterpiece of Richard Hamilton and David Hockney in the United Kingdom as well as Andy Warhol, Jim Dine, Roy Lichtenstein and Claes Oldenburg in the United States of America.


History of IHM School Belmont

Soon after Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish was established, Msgr. John Kenny and his parishioners undertook the commitment to open a Catholic school to serve the children of the parish. In October 1952, the school of the Immaculate Heart of Mary opened to educate students in grades 1 – 6. Originally, the school building occupied the space known as St. James Hall, formerly Sierra Hall, where Sunrise Assisted Living stands today. Three years later, in 1955, the seventh and eighth grades were added and moved into what is now the Kindergarten/Extended Care building, a structure that dates back to 1913.

Our present school building was started in late 1961 and opened in October 1962. Archbishop Joseph T. McGucken blessed the building on May 4, 1963. The Sisters of Notre Dame staffed the school from 1952 to 1984. In 1984, for the first time in the history of the school, a lay principal, Miss Margaret Purcell, was hired to lead the school. With a whole lay faculty in place, the school set out on a new journey. The goal was to keep the school true to its philosophy and continue in the tradition of excellence established by the Sisters of Notre Dame.

A school board was established in 1987. To meet the needs of working parents, an Extended Day Care program was established in 1988. To involve more parents, a Parents Club was started in 1991. Improvements to the building included the extension of the school library in 1970; a computer lab designed to fit in the basement in 1993, and remodeled bathrooms for grades 1-8, which created access from inside the main building, in 1998. A new parish center was added and blessed in December of 2003. The parish center contains a gym, a kindergarten and an extended care room. The old Extended Care and Kindergarten rooms were remodeled during the 2004-2005 school year and opened as a Science Room and Multipurpose Room in September 2005.

The Immaculate Heart of Mary School has continued to flourish until the present day in an atmosphere that cherishes Christian values, love for the students, and commitment to excellence.
