Ход урока

To send light into the darkness of men’s hearts – such is the duty of the artist

I. Стадия вызова (Evocation)

1. Teacher. Good morning, students. I hope you are fine today.

I think we can start. So let’s get down to work.

Let me tell you a few words about the aims of our lesson.

Today we are going to talk about painting. It will be the subject of today’s discussion.

We should revise the material on the topic and discuss all the advantages and disadvantages of modern painting.

2. Teacher. People can express their emotions in different ways. Some of them draw pictures of their favourite places. Others write poems. I have found a very nice poem for you. Let’s read it with a bit of feeling and think of your own emotions and associations.


What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare?
No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep and cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
No time to see in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.
No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.
A poor life this if, full care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
William Henry Davies

3. Teacher. The poem makes really great impression. It is very beautiful and full of emotions. I think you agree with me.

Fist of all I want to make sure you don’t forget the words on the topic “Painting”


4. Teacher. Now make new words.

Worth – worthy – worthless;

II. Стадия осмысления (Realization of meaning).

4. Teacher. There are some proverbs and saying about art and beauty, because this topic is very important for people. On your desks you can see some proverbs and saying. Try to find Russian equivalent

Tarred with the same brush
Одной и той же кистью мазаны. Ср. Одним миром мазаны. Из одного теста сделаны.
Из одной плахи вытесаны

Tastes differ
Вкусы расходятся. Ср. О вкусах не спорят. На вкус и цвет товарища нет

Ср. Не так страшен чёрт, как его малюют

Art is as varied as the life from which it springs. Each artist portrays different aspects of the world. A great artist is able to take some aspect of life and give it depth and meaning. To do this he or she will make use of the many devices common to painting. These devices include composition (the arrangement of the objects within a picture), color, form, and texture.

A painter does not always need handsome and attractive subjects. Often an ordinary subject is transformed through artistry some artists use geometric or abstract forms, colours, and textures to create interest and meaning. Most music does not attempt to imitate natural sounds, and there is no reason why painting should always make use of nature. Briefly it may be said that artists paint to discover truth and to create order. They put into their pictures our common hopes, ideals, and passions and show us their meaning and their value. Creators in all the arts make discoveries about the wonders and beauties of nature and the dignity and nobility of man. They give these an order which enables us to see and understand life with greater depth. Beauty generally results from order but as a by-product, not a primary aim. Not all works of art are beautiful. The painter is able to intensify our experiences. By finding new relationships among objects, new forms, and new colors, they show us things in our environment which we overlooked or ignored. They make the world about us become alive, rich, beautiful, and exciting. The subject which an artist selects for a painting depends largely upon the time in which he lives. A painter living in the Middle Ages would probably have picked a religious subject, for that was almost the only kind of topic portrayed at the time. Had he lived in Holland during the 17th century he might have painted portraits, family scenes, or arrangements of dishes, fruits, and flowers, called still-life. Having selected a subject the painter is faced with the problem of giving it form. Will the idea be communicated best by the use of realistic or abstract forms? Should it be done in bright or in dull colors? Should the effect be exciting or restful? The answer depends upon what the painter is trying to do. In a good painting everything in it grows out of and develops from the intent of the artist.

9. Questions

  1.  What facts do you know before?
  2.  What information is new for you?
  3.  What don’t you understand?
  4.  Do you have another ideas or information?

10. Teacher. Everybody knows that modern painting has got positive and negative aspects.

You are divided into 2 teams. The first team should think of disadvantages. The second team will try to find out only advantages.

Possible answers



1. Produce a bright colour

1. Not all works of art are beautiful

2. Artists paint to discover truth and to create order

2. Some pictures are difficult to understand

3. The put into their pictures our common hopes, ideas and passion

4. Creators in all the arts make discoveries about the wonders and beauties of nature and the dignity and nobility of man.

3. The simple forms might be interpreted in many ways

4. They focus on the shapes not their personalities

5. They show us their meaning and their value

6.They understand life with greater depth

7. They discover new areas of enjoyment

8. They represent the world around us more beautiful and exciting

11. Teacher. We have just compared some possible advantages and disadvantages. It is time to play. The game is called “Chains of events.” Use the second conditional and don’t forget that you should start your own sentence from the previous one.

You should start your chain of events with the words:” If I were a painter…”

12. Teacher. During the week you have been working in groups at the project which were called “Art Gallery”. Every group should choose some paintings and tell us about their favourite one.

III. Стадия рефлексии (Reflection) 

13. Teacher. Make up cinqwayns about painting. If you forget what it is, I’ll remind you. It is a kind of poem, which consists of 5 lines (this word has French origin; cinq means five in French). The first line is a general word, the second line consists of two adjectives which describe this word, the third line includes 3 verbs on the topic, the fourth line is the main idea of your “poem” (It must consist of 3-4 words) and the last line is a synonym of the general world (money). Make up as many cinqwayns as you can. All your cinqwayns will be different. Read aloud your cinqwayns, when you are ready.

14. Подведение итогов урока

Teacher.The topic of our today’s conversation was very serious. We have spoken much about painting and we have discussed the topic from different points of view .I’d like to thank you for good work at the lesson. I give excellent marks to..., good – to …, etc. I wish you be healthy and wealthy.

The lesson is over. See you later. Goodbye!
