Art Foundations 2D: Positive Negative Space Drawing / Painting

My COWS in Positive and negative space! How do I play with the positive and negative space?

GOALS:

  1. 1.2 create art that demonstrates an understanding of how your ideas relate to the 1.2.3 and processes you use.

What was the hardest part of finding the NEGATIVE space in the composition? What do you think will help you as you consider how negative space is used in your artworks? Why is the background an important part of any composition? PAIR / SHARE with a friend and discuss this topic – LOUDLY!

Pair / Share – self – evaluation of the day – comments section of the goal sheet – what is strong with your partner’s composition that will make it interesting to look at? What is a weakness in the composition that they may want to consider as they move forward?

AP Studio Art: Computer Lab – Editing and Uploading Photographs of work.

The above is your Breadth starting point! Where you take it from here is up to you.

Let’s Get to EDITING!

GOALS: 21st Century Thinking

  1. Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making: Use technological skills to solve problems, and make informed decisions using digital images and editing tools.

What was the problem that you had today with the editing of the images? Can you do this on your own? Do we need one more day in the lab to work?

Art Foundations: Positive and Negative Space Drawings, 2 Point Perspective – the Cube – Review notes from Chapter 5.

Positive / Negative Space Drawing and Painting.

GOALS:

  1. 1.2 create art that demonstrates an understanding of how your ideas relate to the 1.2.3 processes you use
  2. 2.3 create artworks that solve visual challenges

What was the MOST CHALLENGING aspect of using the NEGATIVE space to create your artwork for today? Why do you think that being able to SEE the negative space is important in an observational drawing?

Drawing: Begin work on texture drawings – paper bag and plastic bag drawings – OPEN compositions.

Notice the texture? Is this an OPEN or CLOSED composition?

GOALS:

  1. (1.2) Create art that demonstrates an understanding of how your ideas relate to materials, techniques and process.

What techniques / understanding from our last projects in VALUE do you think you can use top make this next drawing OUTSTANDING? What did you learn that will make your OPEN compositions really strong?

~~~

AP Studio Art: Work on coming up with ideas for the next BREADTH work and you concentration works… DO NOT WAIT until the few days before the second week to get started on either… work on both ALWAYS.

What can you do with your ideas? How cool is this sketchbook?

GOALS:

  1. 2.6 create multiple solutions to visual challenges that show understanding in relationships between composition and meaning of artwork

How do you make plans for the work you are planning? What is holding you back from creating outstanding works in the first place? Are you unsure, scared, lazy, apathetic or SOARING to new heights?
