Introduction Impressionists, the Group that Redefined Beauty: Formation of Groups
In 19th century the classicists dominated the world of art. They don’t put much attention to any painter who offered contrasting perspective and change on artistic form and content. Until, Claude Monet and Camille Pissaro met in 1860 and immediately became friends. Two years later, Eduoard Manet and Edgar Degas joined them in their search for alternative forms of artistic expression. Later that year, Monet met Pierre-Aguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley, and Frederic Bazille and persuaded them to join the clique. The young artists developed new approach on painting, often journeying to the countryside to paint landscapes. They work together to discuss artistic philosophies, subject matter and techniques. Art critics rejected their approach for years. But in time, they were recognized by the art community as a new school of painting- the Impressionist, today, their paintings worth million dollars. II. Learning Objectives 1. To know how does group cohered and its dynamics. 2. To encourage people to create a positive attitude toward groups. 3. To know the processes of group formation. Materials ¼ piece of yellow pad Pens Balloons. Music player Activity
We will divide the class into two groups then everyone will be putting their name in the center of the paper. At the back of the paper, write four adjectives that best describe you. When everyone finishes, have them mingle with the group for a few minutes. Without talking, they are to read the back portion of other group members' papers. When time is up, they are to find people who are most like them and visit for a few minutes. People who are most likely alike will be grouped together breaking down the group into two. Thus, the class will be having 4 groups who were likely the same with each other. Group 1 and 2 Each group will be given a balloon to inflate. They will be joining their hands to and will form circle. The objective is to keep the balloon off the floor by batting it, without letting go of hands. If the balloon touches the floor, the group losses its hands, meaning they can’t let their hands touch the balloon; as
balloon keeps hitting the floor, they loose elbows, shoulders, heads, thighs. Facilitator may have groups "carry" balloon across an area, or just have them work in place for amount of time. Group 3 and 4 The entire group makes a huge circle and puts their arms around their neighbour’s shoulders. As the music plays, they pass balloons around the circle using their legs. Start with three or four balloons. When the music stops, the person holding the balloon is eliminated from the group. As the group gets smaller, take balloons away. Eventually there will be two people left and only one balloon.
Analysis 1. How do you feel working with people who are mostly like you? 2. What can you say about the characteristics of your members? 3. Do you think that working with people that are almost exactly like you is effective? Why or why not?
