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.
