Intro to Art: Introduction to the Elements of Art (VALUE)
- SWBT demonstrate comprehension for VALUE by listening to PowerPoint presentation and following an in-class demonstration of the various drawing tools which will be used in classroom exercise(s) such as a student-created value scale
- SW orally ask questions about the techniques demonstrated during class time using content-specific vocabulary and complete sentences.
Below are notes from previous classes you should make a point to familiarize yourself with.
We are getting close to our first project challenge, so these notes and practice session will come into play very soon
Drawing: Observational Drawing Pre-Test (FINAL DAY)
This is it, you will be working on a finished still-life drawing. While the artist’s view will be your choice, the “playing field” will be level for everyone considering your model. The following aspects of a finished drawing should be considered for this pre-test:
- Layout and Scale: How big will you be making this sketch?
- Materials: Which drawing materials are you the strongest with?
- Basic Shapes: Your ability to break down complex looking forms into basic geometric shapes
- Value/Color: The ability to create slight detail using shades and tints.
- Perspective: The “optical illusion” of making your drawing look three dimensional.
Digital Multimedia: Mac OS Basics
- STWBAT demonstrate their understanding of the Mac interface by reviewing short tutorial videos that explain the setup, workspace, and navigation throughout the software.
- SW discuss questions and concerns they have with the videos using content specific language.
Lesson 1.4 Applications
Well now that the nightmare of your pre-test is over, we can finally get into the learning of this awesome software. Over the next few days, I will be sharing some short tutorial videos that you will need to watch in-class before we start with the in-class activities.
Be sure to familiarize yourself with any handouts or links that come out this week as you will have a quiz on this next week.
