    Visual arts appreciation and criticism in context refers to all the processes in which students engage in direct response to the sensory appeal, and critical appreciation and judgment of artwork and art phenomena created by their own efforts and those of artists of a wide rangeFile Size: KB. In a nutshell, can you give a theology of art?” There are great books on art, and I haven’t read most of them or written any of them, but I will tell you what I think. That is all I can do, and if it gives some help, then I am thankful. The word “art” comes from a Latin word, ars, that means skill or craft or craftsmanship. So here is.

    In their book Art & Soul, authors Hilary Brand and Adrienne Chaplin say: “The Scriptures give us not a theology of the arts, but a biblical framework within which the arts, like all other human activity, can be evaluated and understood.” The biblical stories ask demanding questions of all those who claim to follow Jesus, including artists. The mission of Art & Theology is to help the church rediscover its rich heritage in the visual, literary, and musical arts and to open it up to the activity of contemporary artists, whose giftings can enable us to see God in new and different ways. Art can enhance our spiritual perception, enrich our prayer lives, stimulate renewed engagement.

      Prior to the publication of Visual Theology, the design of most of Christian non-fiction books had been overwhelmingly driven by the layout of text, with only occasional diagrams or images subordinated to it. Consequently, the style and formatting guidelines for designing and publishing a text-driven book—and even the people and processes. Visual Faith weaves together a compelling case for the collaboration between art and Christianity. Placing the complex world of contemporary art making within historical, theological, and cultural contexts, Dyrness affirms the necessity of images in the ongoing vitality of the church and her mission.
