Thur. Oct 5 #ValueScaleChallenge #selectiontool #blendingmodes #contourline

Intro to Art: Value Challenge

  1.  Show proficiency and utilize prior knowledge in their understanding and awareness of VALUE by transferring appropriate shades from a reference image by referring to their VALUE SCALE to locate values in their image.
  2. Orally ask any questions about the project demonstration they may have using complete sentences.

The goal was for each of you to not only be able to use the drawing pencils to shade values but be able to identify the subtle differences between those values and what steps/tools you could use to achieve those values.

As you work throughout the next few days on this project, I’d like you to ask yourself whether or not you’re representing the values that are present on your image properly and if not what types of steps do you need to take to get those values to match.


Graphic Coms: Blending Modes and Selection Tool(s)

  • STWBAT use layers and blending modes in Photoshop to create varying effects on photographs
  • SW discuss questions and answers using content-specific vocabulary.

    We’ve played around a bit with Blending Modes, but today we will explore a bit more how they work Edmodo when you specifically only want to select a certain part of your image.  Today we will discuss and review the SELECTION FEATURE as well as:

    Terms reviewed in class will include:

    • Blending Mode
    • Mask
    • Selection
    • Invert

Your current project (Personal Logo)will be due Oct. 4   Oct. 9 at midnight.  Refer to your hour’s Edmodo site for supplemental materials.

Drawing: Contour Line Leaves

  • STWBAT apply their understanding for LINE by practicing CONTOUR LINE tracings.
  • SW identify characteristics of line by taking visual notes in their sketchbooks.
    So here we go…

In class today we will be reviewing something I refer to as the “Picasso Problem” while furthering our conversation on Contour line.  For a little background information on the piece, we will be using as a reference, you can follow this link.

Before we begin this, however, I want to demonstrate some warm-up activities that you should keep in mind as you set yourself up to draw.  Remember, Drawing is a muscle memory exercise,  athletes stretch before they workout, why not artists.
