#Finally #Friday – End of Week 4

Composition is the foundation of image making. It is the spatial relationship between all of the parts in an image. Whether a drawing, a painting, a sculpture, a photograph, a video, or an installation, how a thing is composed determines its look, its feel, and its meaning. Compositional variation, like musical tunes, is limitless.  101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White

What can you look back on about this week as an accomplishment? Write out why? Pat yourself on the back too.

CIaD: Modernism? Musicism? Literacism?

7.1Ac: Recognize and describe personal aesthetic and empathetic responses to the natural world and constructed environments.

Who was the artist you chose? Musically? Maybe let’s offer LITERATURE too! We are going to put their name BELOW the artwork and the title ABOVE the work. Do you have all that information? The research was up to you!
