Art Foundations: Presentation of Architecture AND Begin City Scape / Neighborhood Drawings 

What can you say about your work that hasn’t been said about Gehry’s?

Goals: Neighborhoods and City Scapes HERE

  1. Evaluate the Effectiveness of Art
  2. Create 2 point perspective and Value drawing that uses COMPOSITION to solve visual challenges.

7th Hour – Same Goals – Different Activity: You will take 10 minutes to complete the GROUP Evaluation of your work – hand that in to your GUEST TEACHER.

  1. Evaluate the Effectiveness of Art
  2. Create 2 point perspective and Value drawing that uses COMPOSITION to solve visual challenges.
  • Take a look at the goals and write them down in your binder.
  • After you are finished with that, break into your groups and take 8 minutes to finish up your group answers for the Frank Gehry inspired building you worked on.
  • Staple all of your individual reflection sheets under the group answers and hand them into your guest teacher.
  • As you are headed BACK TO YOUR DESKS, please grab a sheet of White Paper from the Kitchen Table AND a RULER or T-Square.
  • At your desks – using pencil – measure in 6 inches from one side (at the top and the bottom) and draw a line. This is one edge of your picture plane.
  • Do the same for the other side… this is the OTHER side of your picture plane.
  • You can now do one of two things…
    • The picture plane can be the space between these two lines OR
    • CAREFULLY TRIM THE PAPER ON THESE LINES (using the paper cutter, scissors, or an x-Acto Knife and cutting mat) and then attach the “wings” to the side of the paper.
  • BEFORE YOU DRAW A HORIZON LINE, think about the TYPE of VIEW you’d like to have in your NEighborhood OR City Scape. Click HERE – one student is the clicker-master – and look through the images of the NEIGHBORHOOD.
    • In Your Sketchbook write out your thoughts regarding the Neighborhood:
      • Placement of Buildings
      • Number of Buildings
      • Look of Streets, Sidewalks, and Yards
      • Height of houses, trees, other aspects of the architecture / things in the image
      • Does this remind you of YOUR neighborhood? Your houses?
      • What’s Different? What’s the same?
    • In Your Sketchbook write out your thoughts regarding the City Scape:
      • Placement of Buildings
      • Number of Buildings
      • Look of Streets, Sidewalks, and Yards
      • Height of houses, trees, other aspects of the architecture / things in the image
      • Does this remind you of YOUR neighborhood? Your houses?
      • What’s Different? What’s the same?
  • Pair up and REVIEW THE RULES OF TWO POINT Perspective (if time allows). Go over EACH of the 6 Rules of Thumb
  • Are you ready to draw your horizon Line? If so, go ahead and begin with ONE BUILDING… go to the vanishing points…
  • Use your skills and your knowledge… this is a lot on you today and tomorrow – I have FAITH in YOU!

What were the BIGGEST CHALLENGES today? Write that on your GOALS page. Thanks – Video Tomorrow!

Advanced Drawing: Hallway – OIL PASTELS!

Hallway! Is it REAL COLORS? I don’t think so.

Goals

  1. 1.2 create art that demonstrates an understanding of how your ideas relate to the 1.2.1 OIL PASTELS and 1.2.2 OBSERVATION AND MARK MAKING
  2. 2.2 evaluate the effectiveness of artworks (What’s working SO FAR?)

Day two in the hallways with oil pastels for sure… what is the challenge NOT working in the space of the studio?

AP Studio Art: Concentration and ADVENTURE!
