SCHOOL AND EDUCATION LINKS TO THE INTERNET ART OF RICK DOBLE.

About 26 links to my sites from schools and other educators.

From primary schools to graduate studies, schools have linked to my site both for the imagery and for the essays. Here is a list of links and other related resource sites.

I have also received a number of requests from students to perform my monologues and art students to write about my digital art on line. I have had requests from India, Australia, South Africa, the Netherlands, Belguim and Canada.

I welcome cooperation with students and schools so if you have something in mind you would like to do with my work please let me know.

Arti FAQ 21OO
A learning project for students in New York.
Using Renaissance achievements as a platform and present foundation, students will pose key inquiry questions that will prompt their vision of art in our lives within the next hundreds years. http://library.thinkquest.org/13681/data/nyc/intro.htm

"Through our research and developing of this project Internet Artist Rick Doble contacted us to share his ideas and perspectives on art. Many of his points complement our project. We invite you to use them as springboard for speaking, listening and viewing our work."

1.Painting and art are well suited to create new images and icons that can serve as touchstones and guides to our future.
2.Art should often evoke, refer to, pay homage to, or be related to earlier art or art forms.
3.Even radical modern art has been related to earlier art forms.
4.Now, most painters tend to create from their imagination, from subjective inner needs and inner impulses or they paint based on abstract principles or conceptual ideas. Instead of drawing from nature directly, some painters draw from their inner nature. For example, Jackson Pollock used to point out that he, himself, was nature. 5.Jackson Pollock's dripped paintings which were inspired in part by the Navajo Indian sand paintings. These sand paintings were created by shaman who poured colored sand into the shape of figures. Later the wind blew the sand away. 6.Painting in this century has merely reflected the break with nature that the civilization as a whole has experienced.
7.Since this is where the future and civilization are leading us, it is only natural that painting and other arts would also move in that direction and be in the vanguard. 8.Architecture needs to be created that provides transitional areas from inside to outside and which does not set the building and the inside environment completely separate and apart from the outside environment of the world. For example, buildings should have some balconies, roof top gardens, and other points that open to the outside. 9.Because technology has changed, the roles of men and women are different. Women and men will be full equals.
There need to be stories and myths of the heroic that apply to both men and women.
10.It is clear that the Earth and humankind will go through major changes in the next century.

Author, Jacqueline Briggs Martin
Illustrator, Mary Azarian

His name is Rick Doble, and his work may be experienced at http://www.RickDoble/newsnow/ Work with your art teacher and your computer teacher to learn something about Doble's artistic approach. Prepare a presentation for a specific audience that incorporates these moving images.....the presentation could be about art enhancement, about computer art, about Bentley's and Doble's artistic goals, as an introduction to a scientific presentation on snow crystals, or other approved topic.

Dear Rick,

I'm going to do my very best to translate what I wrote on our website.

« By chance I found in the - indeed excellent - weekly "Clickx" an article about the website of a certain Rick Doble. This "digital artist" occupied himself with editing (I have the impression this is a poor translation for our word "bewerken", sorry; maybe "elaborating" can do?) with color the photographs of the snowflakeman. The writer of this article putted that those images were indeed very beautiful, but asked himself (we quote:) "Allright, but what can you do with such a work of art?" Dear JDP, on this page you get an answer for your question. The magnificent photographs of Rick Doble are a perfect illustration for the text that I present my pupils. Internet: what it's all good for!»
