#NotreDameCathedral #Monet… Sad Day in the World.

#51: Learn the basic principles of color. There are three primary colors: red, blue, and yellow. They are the building blocks of all other colors. The secondary colors are violet (blue and red), green (blue and yellow), and orange (red and yellow). They are composed by the equal mixture of two primaries. All other colors are referred to as tertiary, because they are mixtures of a primary and a secondary color. Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

The artists you have researched are a part of the work as well. Some of the artists are going to be easier to incorporate into the work. Hey… what about the negative space? The background? Are you thinking about that?

#Thursday in the #Art Studio! #Korb is #Absent! :(


IND. Adv. Painters – The Two Of You!

Look at YESTERDAY’S POST and check it out. RESEARCH IS ON YOUR OWN. Below is a slideshow of my day at the Milwaukee Art Museum and I mad pictures of FIGURATIVE ART for you to explore. Enjoy!


Art Foundations: Intro to Photoshop and Portraits (x2)

  • G: 3.1P: Apply relevant criteria from traditional and contemporary cultural contexts to examine, reflect on, and plan revisions for works of art and design in progress.
  • A: What did you write down as the GOAL or the thing you were going to begin with today?
    • Share that with your classmate and then get to work in PHOTOSHOP. This is the LAST DAY to work.
      • The images will be 8” x 10” or 10” x 8” and at a resolution of 300ppi.
  • G: Did you hand it in through the Google Classroom as a JPEG? Is it 300ppi? Is it 8″ x 10″ or 10″ x 8″? These minor details are important so that I can print the image up smoothly and easily. Make sure that you named it with your name as part of the title so that it is easy for me to identify.
That is a PHOTOSHOP IMAGE! Woo!

Intro to Digital Art: Photoshop Portraits

What are your thoughts about this faceted Portrait? How’d they do it?
https://tutvid.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/low-poly-thumbnail-new.jpg

Please let me know what artwork you are submitting for the Mary Horde Art show in this Spreadsheet and make SURE you have your art here and to me on FRIDAY!

  • G: 1.1Ac: Individually or collaboratively formulate new creative problems based on student’s existing artwork.
  • A: What is so special about the photo you created last time that is making this portrait so interesting?
    • We will have gone over some of the tools that you might have thought of using (brushed, pencils, erasers) but what else can you use in Photoshop to create a drawing?
    • LAYERS are important here and I hope that you are using them.
    • This project WILL be printed in FULL COLOR. Make your resolution 300 dpi.
    • Continue to work with the self – portrait from last time in Adobe Photoshop. What are you taking away from the process of using PHOTOSHOP rather than ILLUSTRATOR to draw?
  • When you come in the time after next… you need to have 5 thumbnails AND the work of “Literature” with you. If you DO NOT HAVE SOMETHING WITH YOU, I will supply you with a work from your English Class (which is fine if you’d like by the way, you are reading it in class).
I wish he had a body… but this is a great start!
