Lesson procedure

1. Organization moment, announcing the aims of the lesson.

Good morning! Glad to see you again. Sit down, please. Today we’ll speak a lot about art and its role in the world culture. The theme of our lesson is “Art”.

2. Introduction.

Visual art is a vast subject, including all kinds of pictures and sculptures. Artists make art for many reasons. Hundreds of years ago – when many people couldn’t read – paintings were often designed to illustrate stories. And a lot of paintings were made to decorate churches. More recently, artists have begun to paint to express their own feelings or explore ideas, or just to create something beautiful. People have always argued about art – how to make it? What it should like and why. But there are no wrong answers. What kind of art you enjoy is up to you.

So, today we are going to speak about art, painting in particular. We shall learn interesting information about famous artists and pictures, we shall visit the Museum of Modern Art in New York the museums in Almaty and practice our skills in describing pictures.

3. Warming up.

Now look at the quotation of a well-known English writer W. Somerset Maugham.

There is nothing but art. Art is living. To attempt to give an object of art life by dwelling on its historical, cultural or archaeological association is senseless…” (W. Somerset Maugham “The Summing Up”)

4. Phonetic drill.

Answer my questions:

  • Are you interested in art? What art in particular?

  • What world-famous artists do you know?

  • Have you ever been to any picture galleries or museums?

  • Have you ever tried your hand at any of the arts?

5. Follow up activities.

But first let’s revise the vocabulary of this theme.

  1. Styles of Painting.

Put the letters in correct order:


















2) Guess what style it is

  1. It’s the art that doesn’t represent recognizable objects.

  2. It promotes accurate, detailed depiction of nature or contemporary life. It rejects imaginative idealization in favour of close observation.

  3. It’s the conception of art as imitation of nature. Its subject included landscapes, tress, houses, street scenes. The artists paid attention to effects of light and movement.

  4. The key concept of this style is that essence of the object can only be shown from different points of view at once. Its works reject perspective in favour of geometric forms.

  5. The art in which common objects (such as comic strips, soup cans, road signs, and hamburgers) were used as subject matter.


1. Abstract 2. Realism 3. Impressionism 4. Cubism 5. Pop Art

6. Main part.

a) Checking up the home task.

Ex. 7, p 53 Read the texts about museums in Almaty.

  1. The State Museum of National Musical Instruments

  2. The A. Kasteyev State Museum of Arts.

  3. The Central State Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

b) And now we shall visit the museum where we can learn some information about Pablo Picasso and his work “Three Musicians”.

The Museum of Modern Art, New York

At the left of a bare and boxlike space, a masked Pierrot plays the clarinet. At the right, a singing monk holds sheet music. And in the center, strumming a guitar is a Harlequin, in Picasso’s art a recurring stand-in for the artist himself.

Pierrot and Harlequin are stock characters in the old Italian comic theater. The painting, then, has a whimsical side, epitomized by the near-invisible dog: its head is about halfway up the canvas on the left, one of several subtle browns, and we can also make out front paws, a hind leg, and a jaunty tail popping up between Harlequin's legs. Overall, though, the work's somber background and large size make the musicians a solemn, even majestic trio.

The three musicians and dog conjure a bygone period of bohemian life, enjoyed here by Picasso in the guise of a Harlequin flanked by two figures who may represent poet–friends of the artist's: Guillaume Apollinaire, who was recently deceased, and Max Jacob. The patterned flatness of the work is derived from cut–and–pasted paper, and stands in stark contrast to the sculptural monumentality of Picasso's Three Women at the Spring, also painted in the summer of 1921.

And now answer the questions:

- What is the title of the work of art?

- Who created it?

- What genre is it? A landscape? A portrait? A seascape?

- What colours do you see most of or at least of in this work of art?

- What objects or shapes do you see first in this painting?

- Why do you think this is the first thing you noticed?

- What is the mood of painting?

- What feelings or emotions do you experience?

- What music would you choose to this picture?

- What is the main idea of the picture?

7. Rounding off.

Thank you, children, you’ve done your work perfectly. I am satisfied with the results of our lesson. I wonder if you are as satisfied as I am.
