My Drawing/Painting class completed a Modern Art unit covering 8 different artists.
Working in groups of 3-4, they completed grid enlargement paintings.
The artists studied were:
At the end of the unit, a short Art History Test was taken, and the overall grade was around an 85%!
We are now completing a Contemporary Art unit covering -
Josef Albers, Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns and Andy Warhol.
The first week of school FLEW BY.
My high school classes are learning the routines of the art room, and have already created some artwork.
We began by going over the Art Room Expectations, playing a fun little round of Kahoot!
(which is a super fun website used for review games and such), and got our pre-tests out of the way.
All of my classes completed a simple "Zentangle Name Design" card as their first hands on project.
After completing these name cards, we moved on to separate agendas.
We reviewed the Elements of Art, Color Theory and 4 different Shading Techniques.
After the basics were out of the way, the Double Vision project was introduced.
Today, we laid out our designs - one drawing using Cool Colors, and one Warm Colors.
After their drawings are complete, we will combine them into a folded piece of paper.
When the two images are glued on in an alternating format, two images appear from different view points.
I cannot wait to see the results!
Intro to Art
After reviewing the Color Wheel, this class was introduced to their first project - Analogous Circles.
This concept was inspired by Squares with Concentric Circles, by Wassily Kandinsky (pictured below).
Students will create at least 12 circular areas using different Analogous Color Schemes with oil pastel.
Analogous is a term for neighboring hues on the color wheel.
Here is an example of a similar circle project, and some artists in action in class.
