In two of our art classes, we have had the great opportunity to tie it ALL(most) together. Thanks to Ms. Lynn Neuman (math) and Mrs. Nancy Smith (Science) for their ideas and feedback.
Art Foundations – Science / Engineering / Math / English and ART. They researched (flipped classroom of my videos) 2 point perspective (houses, buildings etc…) and learned the “rules.” Then they researched Scanning Electron Microscope images, we had a conversation about the results, they documented their sites, read a bit about it and then… they had to use the rules of perspective to interpret their microscopic image into and oil pastel drawing. The link is here: http://goo.gl/uRIS37
Drawing – Using the HISTORY of Germany and Russia in the early 1900’s – WWII, the students studied the times and ideas behind the work of Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky. They studied the MATH / GEOMETRY / COLOR theory behind his works and came up with their own color theory. THEN… Music was the emotional impetus for the work. They listened first to music by Kandinsky’s contemporaries and got the ideas for abstraction and geometry. From there they worked their OWN music into the art. So lets see… Music / history / math / social studies (history)… oh.. and ENGLISH – they had to write up an explanation – Artist Statement about their work. The collaborative efforts can be seen in this presentation they worked out and engineered through Google Presentation… some of it MAY still be in the works! http://goo.gl/Jz15AT
I had such a wonderful time meeting with all the parents and students who came out last night to talk about, explain, and share the opportunities and growth that the visual arts classes have offered. I am really looking forward to more of that this morning. We will be in the gymnasium until 10 so come on down to visit and talk about the artwork, progress, opportunities, future that your budding artist is working through… and we can talk grades too.
Art Foundations: Microbiology – Microscopic Images and 2 Point Perspective – Up To The LARGE PAPER and Oil Pastels!
Drawing: Wassily Kandinski 2014 – What are you bringing to the theory of color and math?
AP Studio Art: One more week with your NEW concentration works – then FIGURE STUDIES!
All late work – let’s get that done! See me, call me, email me with any questions or concerns.
1.2 create art that demonstrates an understanding of how your ideas relate to the PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS 1.2.3 and processes / attempts / sketches you use
2.3 create artworks that solve visual challenges using the THOUGHTS and IDEAS of 2 Point (or more) linear perspective.
What do you see as the most difficult part of the design and restructure of your image? What was your BIGGEST SUCCESS? What was the BIGGEST CHALLENGE you had?
1.1 apply Pencil and Oil Pastels in a variety of techniques, and processes with 1.1.1 skill and 1.1.3 and awareness so that your ideas about music, geometry, and color theory are executed well.
What three things did you find interesting about YOUR images and what three things did you find interesting about your neighbors? WRITE THESE OUT with the WHY’s in your end of week comments.
AP Studio Art: Draw, Make Art, Digitize
3.5 evaluate and defend how 3.5.1 subject matter 3.5.2 symbols are used in art
2.6 create multiple solutions to visual challenges that show understanding in relationships between your concentration images and meaning of artwork
Thinking about the critiques from earlier this week, what are you in need of doing to make these end of the concentration works the best? We still have TONS of time to POLISH our concentrations… what else do you do?
3.2 apply subjects, symbols, and ideas in art and use skill to solve visual challenges – What are you learning about 2 point perspective and how can you use it in your upcoming drawing.
2.6 create multiple solutions to the perspective challenges of a scanning electron microscope image. How can you show understanding in relationships between composition and meaning of artwork
What do you see as the most difficult part of the design and restructure of your image? What Is your image and WHY are you choosing it? What does the original do? Why is it built the way it is and how does that creation help it do what it does?
Drawing: Sketching / Drawing / Listening
3.1 reflect on how your art differs from Kandinsky’s and describe how it relates to the past and current time as well as past culture and your culture.
3.2 apply subjects, symbols, and ideas in art and use skill to solve visual challenges (how are you using MATH and PHILOSOPHY in the NEW works)
What NEW ideas might you have had about COLOR and SHAPE in the art you were creating? SHARE this with your classmates SO that you can practice the skills of talking about your ideas and work. I am seeing GROWTH in a NUMBER of you. Keep it up.
AP Studio Art: Concentration / Photographs
2.6 create multiple solutions to visual challenges that show understanding in relationships between composition and meaning of artwork
hat have you come up with? What materials are you planning on using? How does it fit into your current body of work?
