Зміст уроку


Warming up

My dear students! I hope you are fine and ready to work.

At our English lesson we’re going to speak about art.

What is art?

One of the definitions of the word art is the study or creation of beautiful things.

Really, when something is extremely beautiful or has great cultural value, we say: “It’s art”.

- What is art for you, complete the following statement:

People like art because …

- it reflects our feelings and emotions;

- it helps us to understand the world around us better;

- it’s true and realistic to life;

- it makes us happier and helps to relax;

Slide 2

Read the quotations and comment on them

A picture is a poem without words”

Art makes the world go round”

What kinds of feelings it may be?

I think so: in his works an artist often expresses some deep feelings.

It may be joy, sorrow, fear.

It may be a love to the country or to the nature.

The arts are a kind of language often easier than spoken words.

3. Listening

Slide 6

Sometimes, music and painting is called an universal language. While you see a picture, music is heard in your heart and it makes you feel the joy and pride, sadness or hope.

Here is a small exhibition of different paintings. Let’s do such kind of exercise: you will listen to music and will choose a picture according to your mood. The task is to choose and to explain your choice.

When I see these pictures and listen to this classic music I feel calm and paradise. This is icon-painting.

Listening to this energetic music I imagine the sea, the strong storm/ I adore seascapes!

As far as I know, it’s a melody in “country” style” the landscape is great! I feel I should run in the meadow, pick up flowers, see a wonderful wood.

Group 1

Group 2

Van Gogh was born in Holland in 1853. At the age of 26 he realized that painting was his true vocation. In 1886 he left for Paris. After living there for 2 years he moved to the warmer climate of Aries in the south of France. Here he painted some of his most famous pictures. He was mentally ill and eventually went into a mental hospital. He painted what he felt, he interpreted nature in his own way. He died on July, 1890 in a small village north of Paris. Today people around the world can see his paintings in the museums. The biggest Van Gogh Museum is in Holland, the country where Van Gogh was born.

Kateryna Vasylivna Bilokur was born in 1900 in Bogdanivka village in Ukraine. She received no formal education.But her desire to paint was extreme. She was often at labor all day and painted during the night until she could no longer stay awake. She tried to gain entrance to art school in the 1920, but she had no chance. She also had little opportunity to see and study the work of other artists. Bilokur painted her heart out. By the 1930s, she was be said to have become a master. Her work caught the eye of a famous Ukrainian singer, Oksana Petrusenko, who helped get her art placed in shows and galleries. Some of her works found their way to Europe.

In 1956 Katerina Bilokur was named the “People’s Artist of Ukraine”. Her image was also issued on a Ukrainian coin.

She died in 1961
