Welcome to ArtMovement!


ArtMovement is designed to introduce you to some key ideas behind abstract art, a type of art where there is no attempt to depict people, places or things, and is free from visual references to the natural world. This site allows you to interact with and make your own versions of important abstract works by some famous artists from the twentieth century.

Each page on the site deals with a different artist, several major art movements are introduced and some key terms are explained. At the end of each section there are some points and questions for discussion.

The interactive artworks work best with a mouse and keyboard, and were made using Processing, an open source programming language. Check it out here. Enjoy the site!
