S1 - DAY TWO - Art History - Stone Age 30,000 b.c.- 2500 b.c.

To describe the global origins of humans’ artistic achievement, upon which the succeeding history of art may be laid, is an encyclopedic enterprise. The Metropolitan Museum’s Timeline of Art History, covering the period roughly from 20,000 to 8000 B.C., provides a series of introductory essays about particular archaeological sites and artworks that illustrate some of the earliest endeavors in human creativity. The account of the origins of art is a very long one marked less by change than consistency. The first human artistic representations, markings with ground red ocher, seem to have occurred about 100,000 B.C. in African rock art

This chronology may be more an artifact of the limitations of archaeological evidence than a true picture of when humans first created art. However, with new technologies, research methods, and archaeological discoveries, we are able to view the history of human artistic achievement in a greater focus than ever before.

Impressionism was the first of the art movement (1870 - 1890) that broke away from traditional printing style and subject matter completely, inventing new ideology and conception of art. Impressionism is best described as an innovative and a fresh start to modern compositional norms. Inventions of artificial pigments were being made to create new vibrant colours for artists to use on their works. Smaller, luminous canvases and metal paint tubes were being made causing artists to freely move from outside of their studios and paint outdoors. Conventions of camera influenced many artist's candid subject matter and composition
