Week of 10/11/10 – 10/15/10

October 11, 2010

Just a note on the foam board sclp.  They were awesome!!!!  I am really proud of my 3-D kids!  Monday  we will design the shape of our skulls along with ideas for decorating the skulls.  We will start pouring plaster around Tuesday or Wednesday for Day of the Dead skull heads.  After pouring plaster into baggies the kids will have to carve the plaster into skull heads.  When finished carving we will seal the plaster and paint designs on the skull.  Ideas for designs can be personal or on a loved one.   Example,  If so an so was a cowboy you might want to paint a cowboy hat on your skull.  We will try to keep the designs as traditional as possible with a personal touch.  This assignment will last around 2 weeks.

Intro to art and drawing class needs some help on perspective drawing.  We will start on Monday.   I switched lessons on the art one kids and we did a shading drawing instead of perspective.  I had the kids critique their drawings with some really honest replies.

Art 1 will design day of the dead drawings and then we will start perspective drawings.  We will do two 1 point perspective drawing and two  2 point drawings.

February 8, 2010

3D-  students are working on plaster/clay relief.  We have been pouring plaster into the clay molds this week.  Kids are helping each other mix and pour plaster.  Getting ready for art show.

DRAW- students will finish painting paper mache skulls this week.  Getting ready for art show.

Art One-  Intro to Positive Negative painting.  Students will draw on a large sheet of white paper and draw a 4″ x 4″ grid on paper, making 20, 4″x4″ squares.  I cut several hundred 4″x4″ template or stencils the kids will use for their design.  After desired design is achieved student then draws their design in every square.  On this painting we will be using 2 colors, most likely flourescent paint.  When painting design, paint lighter color first, do the whole page.  Make sure to flip flop color scheme.  Example, if your design is a star and you plan on using black and red color schemme.  The first square the star is black and on the 2nd square the star is red.   Now, if the star is black the background is red and if the star is red the background is black. Continue this pattern until finished with painting.  I will show examples and work with kids who are having a hard time making their design.  This assignment is similar to paintings and prints by Warhol.
