Art Foundations: Time to PAINT – R.Y.B.K.W.  – Questions?

Remember this video?
  • G: 1.2P: Shape an artistic investigation of an aspect of present-day life using a contemporary practice of art or design.
  • A: Hopefully you have completed the DRAWING of the portrait onto the grid. This was HOMEWORK – Right?
    • Please share with your neighbor the most challenging part of the process of  the drawing? One Square at a time? Did you go into the next square more than once?
    • The process of the grid allows you to focus on one square at a time and not worry about the larger picture of the process. Today we are going to talk about the process of painting the work and working one square at a time.
    • Also – COLOR SCHEME is a huge part of the process… What color scheme are you choosing?
    • Today we paint. Let’s review the rules of paints and then we get to work. Take your time – but we work solid! This is the last LAST PROJECT!
  • G: What are your plans for next time? What have you accomplished today? Allow yourself to be VERY aware of the final results from the day. Reflect. What did you get done?

#Friday (and #Monday) and we have things to do to #MakeArt!

52 Every color has an opposite, called a complement. Complementary colors sit opposite one another in the color wheel. Additionally, all colors are affected by the presence of other colors. Even the smallest presence of a complement will enhance the intensity of a color when it is present in the same visual field. The presence of red, for instance, will cause the retina to “seek” green in the other colors present, hereby enhancing all parts of the green spectrum. If you wish to intensify a color in a composition, place some of its complement nearby. This applies to all media. The effective use of color is one of the greatest tools at an artist’s disposal.

Digital Art: Literature Time – Are You READY!

  • 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:DAY 1: What Book / Story / Song have you brought in and thought about to use as your inspiration for this ILLUSTRATION in Photoshop? As you have read, listened to the “literature”, what have you pulled from the “story?” Is it a phrase, an idea and feeling from the ENTIRETY of the story? IS it a character? Is it something entirely different? This is going to be your PERSONAL ILLUSTRATION about the work of literature.
  • G: Looking over the THUMBNAILS and SKETCHES you CAME IN WITH… What have you accomplished today in the process of ILLUSTRATING the work of “LITERATURE.” How are you making strong artistic choices (look at the Artist Habits of Mind to make a reflection on here).
What are you doing to ILLUSTRATE your work of LITERATURE?

52 Every color has an opposite, called a complement. Complementary colors sit opposite one another in the color wheel. Additionally, all colors are affected by the presence of other colors. Even the smallest presence of a complement will enhance the intensity of a color when it is present in the same visual field. The presence of red, for instance, will cause the retina to “seek” green in the other colors present, hereby enhancing all parts of the green spectrum. If you wish to intensify a color in a composition, place some of its complement nearby. This applies to all media. The effective use of color is one of the greatest tools at an artist’s disposal.
