Art Foundations: Grid our paper and finish our color wheels. If you are done with the color wheel and you finish the grid… make sure your sketchbook and LATE WORK are complete.

Click on the “head” to see a video on how Chuck Close paints with a grid.

GOALS:

  1. Describe the creation of images and explain why they are of value.
  2. Work on Mathematical Ratios and Transferring images.

What COLOR SCHEMES are you struggling with understanding? Go through EACH of the color schemes with your neighbor and explain each one to one another. In your GOALS PAGES COMMENTS – write down your most challenging understanding of color schemes.

~~~

DRAWING: We are working with proportions and getting the drawing “picture plane” onto the photograph. Let’s get the drawing CAREFULLY up to the drawing paper. This paper is NOT CHEAP – it is a one sheet rule.

Henri Matisse’s painting of Andre Derain – I think they knew one another!

GOLAS:

  1. 3.1 reflect on how art differs and describe how it relates to history and cultures
  2. 4.1 recognize differences in historical and cultural contexts of art

What part of the math was a challenge to you? How well were you able to read the ruler and figure out how to make a QUALITY picture plane? As you draw this up, make sure that you are making references to the RELATIONSHIPS of COMPOSITIONAL ELEMENTS. We are looking for good to great – NOT PERFECT.

AP Studio Art: Chapters in the book – Paragraph 1 Chapter 1 and Chapter 2… Sit and Enjoy!

What’s your chapter? We are going to READ and MAKE ART and EDUCATE… YOU WILL TEACH!

GOALS:

  1. Work on finishing up presentation of portfolios and uploads.
  2. 2.6 create multiple solutions to visual challenges of Art and Fear that show understanding in relationships between composition and meaning of artwork.

What did you get done today? What have you read from the book?

April 29, 2013 – Monday – Week 14: 5 more to go… SO much to do!

What are the colors used? Piet Mondrian – De Stijl Artist!

Art Foundations: Continue on the color wheel AND learn about using a GRID to plan out an artwork.

GOALS:

  1. 1.4 Define color schemes and value scales using analysis (what are the colors that we, as painters / drawers use to make all the other colors?)
  2. 1.2 Create art that demonstrates an understanding of how your ideas relate to materials and techniques.

Share image with your classmate and explain the process of measuring and transferring images.

~~~

Drawing: Transfer the photograph to the paper with pencil and consider the colors you might use (Color Scheme) to communicate a message / emotion.

Portrait of Henri Matisse by Andre Derain.

GOALS:

  1. 3.1 reflect on how art differs and describe how it relates to history and cultures
  2. 3.2 apply subjects, symbols, and ideas in art and use skill to solve visual challenges

What was the most challenging aspect of your drawing to get done today? How are you using OBSERVATION and COMPARISON – sighting in – to get your drawings set up correctly?

~~~

AP Studio Art: We are beginning a NEW ARTWORK based on literature. We are ALSO finishing the wrapping up of the portfolio.

How are you filling this?

GOALS:

  1. Work on Quality Mounting of artworks.
  2. 3.2 apply subjects, symbols, and ideas in art and use skill to solve visual challenges

As last week – what do you need to complete so that you have a complete portfolio by Friday?
