Art Foundations: Color Theory

Henri Matisse Stained Glass:
  • G: 1.1P: Use multiple approaches to begin creative endeavors.
  • A: As we think about COLOR… What are the PRIMARY COLORS? What are the SECONDARY COLORS? What are the TERTIARY COLORS? Do you know anything about COLOR SCHEMES? Write out all the COLOR SCHEMES that you can think of (we have spoken about some of them already – all of them that we are talking about actually).
  • G: What did you accomplish in regards to the color scheme worksheet and what have you accomplished with the idea of an abstract  or landscape inspired color wheel? How well do you understand the ideas of the color wheel and the relationships of the colors with one another – the color wheel is the first page of our final exam by the way.

  • G: 1.2Ac: Choose from a range of materials and methods of traditional and contemporary artistic practices to plan works of art and design.
  • A: When we talk about ABSTRACTION, we can look at the ideas of OBJECTIVE and NON – OBJECTIVE abstraction. Non – Objective os when we have ZERO reference to anything real or observed. In most of the works you have created thus far, the ideas are NON-OBJECTIVE. On the other hand there is abstraction based on observable things. Now… we are going to be dealing with a new style of painting (and you are going to be developing this over Thanksgiving break) and that is creating a work that is REPRESENTATIONAL. You will be creating a work of art that is based on the ideas of looking at and creating a work of art that is based on your observational skills. When it comes to observational imagery… observational art… what images are you drawn to?
  • G: Know that you are going to need to be building the NEW CANVASES LONG BEFORE THE NEXT painting time begins. This week? When we come back. Before you are done with the abstraction.
