First, watch the video on the internet by searching for YouTube,Matthew Collings "This Is Civilization", episode 1, part 1/5 on YouTube for 9:04 minutes. Then you will watch Matthew Collings "This Is Civilization", episode 1, part 2/5 on YouTube for 8:48 minutes. You might like to watch the whole 17:19 minutes on the combined links, then re-watch it, stopping where the questions are posed. When you are ready to respond to the questions, select the underlined title of the discussion board at the left titled Discussion Board 2: Ye Gods. Select "Create Thread". Consider the following questions and respond to them on the discussion board. When all responses are completed, submit your responses and check to be sure you can see them.

To receive full credit, you must answer all 5 questions, and respond to at least one other student's comments.

I will ask you to pause the link at the indicated clock intervals on the left to answer a question that is relevant to the preceding portion of the film.

0:00-9:04: Watch, then pause. Matthew Collings starts with the statement "Art IS life."
1. Now that you have listened to his comments, what do you think he means ?

0:00-5:30: 2. How does Egyptian Art differ from Greek Art?
3. Why did the Greeks want their art to depict humans in
a very life-like presentation?
4. Why did Greek art change so quickly, unlike the Egyptian art which changed so slowly?

5:30-8:15 After the Kouroi figures, first the Archaic and then the Classical, we see the rapid development of
narrative friezes on the Parthenon. The self-awareness inherent in the sculptural friezes asks the question
"What can society be?" The Greeks, through their self-questioning, examined both human feelings and
their ability to reason. Through this process, the Greeks developed democracy, rule by the people.
It is the Greek ideal "perfection of the individual" that has set a standard for the West
quite unlike the accent on the group which is generally the standard in the East.
5. Where can we see evidence of Greek influences in the United States of America,

in art, science, politics and religion?

perception of the world and their environments, which were critical to their survival and
continued existences. Therefore, Collings used the statement to describe the significance of art to

vocational materials.
2. How does Egyptian Art differ from Greek Art?
In spite of the critical role that Egyptian art played in the formation and development of
Greek art, the forms and purposes of the artworks that are produced from the societies are
different due to several factors...
