[teacherartexchange] Real Beauty


Date: Fri Oct 20 2006 - 16:43:31 PDT

Hi All,

A friend of mine on this list, sent me the following link:

It is a fascinating add by Dove showing how Photoshop is being used to distort
the features of a beautiful woman...The add is meant to raise consciousness
about the negative impact of these kinds of adds on the perceptions of others
about women's body image. It raises ethical questions about advertising and
how art is being used to influence others. This add is being used by Dove to
kick off their campaign for real beauty.

It would be a great way to raise this particular issue in a high school art
class. The number of females who are obese is rising at a very fast rate. The
number of girls with body image issues is incredible.

What do you think?
