  1. FUNCTIONS OF ART Michelle Joy M. Velasco, LPT, MAEd
  2. OBJECTIVES At the end of the unit, students should be able: • To distinguish between functional and non functional art • To realize the function of some art forms in daily life • To apply concepts and theories on beauty and aesthetics in real life scenarios
  4. "FUNCTIONS OF ART" When it comes to function, different art forms come with distinctive functions. There is no one- to-one correspondence between an art and its function. Some art forms are more functional than others. Architecture, for example, as an art is highly functional just like most applied arts. A building as a work of art is obviously made for a specific purpose.
  5. Social Functions One cannot conceive of a society without art, for art is closely related to every aspect of social life.
  6. Arts perform a social function when: 1. Influences Social Behavior It seeks or tends to influence the collective behaviorof a people. (Guernica by Pablo Picasso)
  7. 2. Displayand Celebration It is created to be seen or used primarily in public situation.
  8. One function of sculptureand painting is the commemoration of important personages in society. The statuesof national heroes that grace ourparks and plazas are commemorativeworksas are the commissioned paintings of leaders or rulers. Often they serve to record important historical events, or reveal the ideals of heroism and leadership that the communitywould want theyoung to emulate.
  9. 3. Social Description It expresses or describes social or collective aspects of existence as opposed to individual and personal kind of experiences. Romana Carillo by Justiniano Asuncion (1875)
  10. Physical Functions Tools and containers are objects which function to make our lives physically comfortable. Functional works of art may be classified as either tools or containers. Tell whether the following is a tool orcontainer. 1. aspoon - 2. acar- 4. acommunity - 5. aceramicvase - 6. achair.- tool tool 3. a building- container container container container
  11. 1. Form and Function The function of an object is generally determines in the basic form that it takes. A chair is sodesigned as toallow the seated body to rest comfortablyon it. The shapes, sizes , and different parts are harmoniously related toone another and integrated intoan object that fulfills and tells about their particular purpose.
  12. 2. Architecture The design of the building is determined primarily by its operational function. What is the building for? Who aregoing to use it? How manyare they? The design thata building takes is alsoadapted to the climateof the region. Thearchitect must take the physical, psychological, and spiritual needs of the family intoaccountwhen he designs a house.
  13. 3. Community Planning A community is more than just a group of buildings. It is a group of individuals and families living in a particular locality because of common interest and needs. Community planning involves the efficient organization of buildings, roads, and spaces so that they meet the physical and aesthetic needs of the community.
  14. Community planning takes into consideration the assignment of areas for proper land use. These are: 1. Residential districts Special areas areassigned for residential purposes. The present trend is togetaway from overcrowded downtown districts and the attendant problems and settle in areas where it is possible to blend the charms of rural living with the conveniences of urban living.
  15. 2. Industrial and commercial areas Theseareas are usually located near the sourceof raw materials. A commercial areacan be a clusterof small neighborhood stores, a shopping complex in the suburbs, ora central downtown district. It is usually situated where itcan be reached easily by caror public transport.
  16. 3. Civiccenters A community governs itself; it therefore provides structureswhere the functionsof government can be efficiently carried out, and which would, in appearance, be symbolicof communitydignity and pride.
  17. 4. Parks, plazas, and malls The need for a balance between man-made structures and natural areas is answered in the design of plazas and malls. These may provide some relief from problems such as air and water pollution, inadequate facilities forrecreation, and lack of parking space.
  18. 5. Streetsand roads Transportation must function with reasonableeaseand rapidity from onearea toanother. Streetsare largeorsmall according to their function.
  19. Function and Beauty Many things remain the same in shape throughout the years because their functional requirements do not allow forgreatervariations in their form. Time has proved that theirdesigns best enable them to accomplish their purpose.
