Photo: “What’s your perspective?”

Interpret this in a way that works best for you to show me your ability in photography as well as explore one of the themes or meaning of work that you brainstormed during class. You can take this literally on showing atmospheric perspective/ depth in a photo- focusing on use of elements and principles in a way to create depth. You could also interpret this assignment by taking photos that depict your perspective or opinion on a theme or mean of work that interests you.

 

Studio: “Things that shine.”

PART 1: Please find something that interests you or says something about you that reflects light. Draw this object from life. You should be creating an observational drawing. Focus on create the values that you see! Try to push your realism as far as you can. How many elements and principles did you use?

Part 2: Re-draw an outline of your object. Using color, add Vincent Van Gogh’s style to your outline to complete it. DO NOT copy anything that Vincent Van Gogh created. You are simply being inspired by his style to complete your outline.

**Compare the finished, stylized rendering, to that of your first drawing. Which do you like better? Why? How do these two drawings compare? Does one give more meaning or message or communication to the viewer? Explain.

 

Graphic Design: “What’s your perspective?”

For this week’s assignment, I would like you to brainstorm your interests in graphic design. What kind of visual communication is important to you? How do you think media, business, companies, etc. communicate to the world best? What makes you want to buy something or go somewhere? With this assignment, I want you to answer these questions and let them impact what you create.

Using 2 or 3 point perspective, create a design that shows depth. (Open-Ended Assignment: As long as you are using 2 or 3 point perspective to create depth and you have brainstormed and reflected on the above questions- you are free to create a design (more of a piece of art), logo, or advertisement- as always- keep it school appropriate) Hand draw your idea first, then try to re-create or finish it on the computer.

 

 

Advanced Studio: “Things that shine.”

PART 1: Please find something that interests you or says something about you that reflects light. Draw this object from life. You should be creating an observational drawing. Focus on create the values that you see! Try to push your realism as far as you can. How many elements and principles did you use?

Part 2: Re-draw an outline of your object. Complete your second drawing with elements and principles borrowed from the artist you researched and wrote down during class. What do you like about that artist’s work? Add those elements that you like into your second drawing (should be just the outline to start). Compare the finished, stylized rendering, to that of your first drawing. Which do you like better? Why? How do these two drawings compare? Does one give more meaning or message or communication to the viewer? Explain.

**You should have two full page, high quality sketches for this week’s assignment. Remember, this is an Advanced Art Elective; please put in the appropriate time and effort! You have a full week (including an entire weekend) to work on this.

 

 

 

“THIS IS NOT A BOOK,” by Keri Smith

Looking for something to fill your free time or get your brain thinking outside of the box? Check out this book. I have recommended it to my classes. If you are one of my students that has this book. I would like you to work on pages 7, 73, 124, and 128. As always, keep it school appropriate and have fun.

Weekly Sketch Assignment

Weekly Assignment 3

Due Monday, October 6, 2014

 

Photography: Incorporating the elements discussed and practiced in class, photograph, in your own interpretation: “Things that shine.” You can take this literally or figuratively. If you take this literally- please pay attention to lighting, focal point, focus, saturation/ value, and interesting composition. If you take this figuratively, you need to take the time to set up or stage your composition. Include as many of the elements and principles as possible. Create an artist statement for your work.

 

Graphic Design: Create, invent, or reinvent a shoe. Create an advertisement for your new shoe. Reflect on what makes a good advertisement. What qualities did you incorporate? Show two people that are not in this class and get their feedback. Would they buy the shoe based on your advertisement? What would make it a more interesting advertisement? What drew their eye or interest? Document in your sourcebook.

 

Studio Art/ Advanced Studio Art: Your choice- draw your shoe or your hand. Focus on observational skills, value, texture, details (line quality, basic shapes, etc.). Write a reflection on the back. Try to push realism.
