There are several tracks you can choose from. You can change tracks at the beginning of a week. If you change tracks, you start at the beginning of the new track.
The Week-Long Projects Track most closely mimics the art experience you would have had in the classroom.
Collection of Things - Composition One
The Collection of Things tasks you will emulating 10 different art styles. Once we get going, you'll probably be able to do one composition per week, but in the first week you'll probably spend a few days researching art styles and deciding on an object you want to use in your compositions. These projects will help expand your knowledge of art and art history, improve your ability to emulate different artistic styles, and give you a chance to make different compositional decisions with a single object. The gif to the right depicts a person taking a drink, but each still is done in a different art style. In this track, you will be painting, drawing, collaging, and/or sculpting as you see fit to match the style you are trying to emulate.
Turning in Work
Turn in your work to Google Classroom
- When you turn in a small task, just turn in photos of the work (like the reference images).
- When you turn in the finished composition, turn in that composition, plus the reference images you ended up using to make it.
- Write 3+ sentences in the comments that describe what you learned, what was successful about the composition, and what could have gone better.
- Be sure to use art terms, like the elements of art and principles of design, in your sentences.
Repeat for up to ten different art movements
- Choose a new art movement, find three to five works that capture the movement, and create three style descriptors.
- Use the reference images you already have of your object along with the new movement images and the style descriptors to create a new composition.
- Use one piece of final paper for two compositions.
