Final Week: Art Challenge
Create an artwork using pen! Feel free to combine the pen with any other art media.It does not need to follow any other rules.
Week 8: Drawing with Shapes
Step by step drawing is all about slowing down and noticing how something is put together and it is a strategy for seeing the parts of an object.
This week try these step by step drawings using circles, squares and triangles.
Week 7: Monoprint
Already you have explored Rubbing in a previous assignment, this is a type of printmaking. There are many different types of printmaking.
See the following website to explore the other types, https://www.moma.org/interactives/projects/2001/whatisaprint/flash.html
The type we will try is called a monoprint. The idea is to paint something but before it dries you place a piece of paper over top of the painting and stamp the wet paint on the paper. It creates a highly textured image, and once you do it you will be tempted to experiment with various effects.
How do you do this?
Week 6: Andy Goldsworthy
With the days getting nicer outside and perhaps you have been going for walks and bike rides begin thinking about the spaces and nature around you. Artist Andy Goldsworthy creates sculpture outdoors using the objects that can be found in that place.
See examples; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPDH8yCnlk0
Always remember social distancing, create your own sculpture. When creating a sculpture like this you need to think about the elements of design; shape, texture, pattern, line, and maybe colour. Share with me what you create.
Week 5: Group of Seven
Visit the following link, https://beta.ctvnews.ca/national/entertainment/2020/5/6/1_4927474.amp.html
The artists featured here are a group of artists who have helped shape Canadian art. These artists were inspired by artist Tom Thompson and inspired Canada. Tom Thompson is an artist to enjoyed nature and the outdoors. He would paint outside. Using the materials of your choice go outside and draw what you see. As you draw pay attention to midground, background and foreground. Do you notice the movement in the Group of Seven's artwork? How can you show movement in your artwork? Try not blending your brushstrokes or colouring smoothly let your lines show.
Example of background, midground and foreground, see the file grounds.png
For an example of using line to create movement in a landscape, see movementcolouredpencil.jpg
Week 4: Get Caught up
Online: Creative Photography
Try playing with perspective, think about where you are positioning yourself and the subject you are photographing.
Here is a video to help you understand what to do.
Offline: Make your own paint
There are many things you can use to make paint. Ask your parents first or even ask them to help you. What are some things you have in your kitchen you can use; tea, coffee, and spices? What about things from outside; grass, and dirt? Should you boil the water or use cold water? What do you observe?
Materials: You will need to get bowls or cups, water (maybe hot and cold), spoons for stirring, paper, paintbrush.
Once you have made your paint, create a painting inspired by the materials your paint is made from.
Share your photos and paintings with me but also with the STEAM Showcase.
Previous Art Activities;
Online – Visit Art
Use the website to guide you as you explore.
While you look at the various artworks, talk with a parent and write about: What I see, What I think, and What I feel. Create some art. Look to see what you have to use: chalk, paint etc.
Create an original mural of your own or a small artwork inspired by the one you saw.
Offline – Printmaking Collage Creature
A rubbing is a type of printmaking, where you put a piece of paper on top of a textured surface then rub a crayon or pencil or coloured pencil over top of the paper and you will see the texture. While this seems pretty easy. Your challenge is to create a creature, real or imaginary, and also illustrate where it lives or plays.
Online: What is your impression?
Visit this website, watch the video and scroll down.
Assignment: Answer the question, what is your impression of the impressionists?
Then make your own artwork that illustrates your answer. Will you paint or draw outside on your deck or yard like an impressionist? Will you paint or draw a myth or story like Salon Artist before 1880?
Offline: Your Vision
When we draw or paint we often think about realism as being important but for artist for centuries that has not necessarily been the case. Pick a subject; landscape, still life, portrait, can you think of something else? Create a drawing or painting or sculpture that does not focus on realism. Imagine you are squinting your eyes (go ahead squint) or your camera is out of focus. Draw the main shapes and colours. Do not worry about what you are doing just do it. Then look at what you have done and create an image that uses colour, and shape.
