What is Art? It is not always what we think about today. Art today may not be perceived as such when it was first created nor the person who creates it is necessarily regarded as an artist. Both the term of art and the idea of the artist are relatively modern terms. Many of the objects can be identified as art today, murals, sculptures, fountains or urban furniture, for example. In this project, we are going to investigate the "Art" in Sheng-Kung and the meaning behind it. Through this project, we want people to gain knowledge, meaning, authorship, an understanding of the history of art works and respect for them.

Our Motivations

• Few people really understand the meanings of these artworks.

• We wonder who created these pieces of art in our school and why.

• Are there any connections among the artworks?

Introduction of the Project

• We chose our fountain, mural, sculpture and stained-glass windows as our research.

• We had to interview some people who know well about the artworks.

• We tried to find out their history and meanings.

• We could interpret art in a different way.

What did we learn?• Through this project we learned about

our school’s history.

• We found the meanings behind these artworks.

• The most important point is we know how to observe art everywhere.

Page 19: Art in sk2

Resolutions to Difficulties • It's really difficult to know the meanings of

these artworks and not everything could be found on the internet.

• It’s hard to interview someone who knows the history well.

• It’s tough to translate Chinese into English.

• Doing research is time-consuming.

• All of us are from different classes, so it’s difficult for us to get together.

The Impact of the Project

• In every picture, statue, and artistic construction, one can see there is a voice hidden in it, continually telling us what purpose the work of art was created for.

• Follow the artist’s imagination and interpret it on our own with our imagination.

Suggestions and Recommendations

• We were pressed for time in completing the project.

• The content of the project could be broader, not only limited to these choices.

• Encourage students to appreciate more artworks.

• Encourage people to talk with others about art and learn more about it.
