Directly from Wikipedia….: “An art movement is a tendency or style in art with a specific common philosophy or goal, followed by a group of artists during a specific period of time, (usually a few months, years or decades) or, at least, with the heyday of the movement defined within a number of years.”
What does that mean? Basically, a group of artists around the same time all did art with similar styles, techniques, and ideas. Some groups of artists loved using lots of colors to show emotion in their art, while others were more in love with painting realistic images of people in different scenes. These groups of artists would have been following different “art movements”. There were many art movements in history, each one with a unique style and story.
Choose one of the following art movements…
Your first assignment for the week will be to create a google presentation (slide show) presenting the art movement you selected.
The slide show will require…:
1) One Title Slide with the art movement name and one art piece showing the style of the movement.
2) One information slide that will use bullet points to explain and describe what the art movement looks like. Use an art piece example in the slide for the viewer to reference while reading your explaination.
(example: Describe what does an “Expressionism” painting look like?)
3) Three slides presenting 3 artists from the art movement. Each artist will have their own slide showing 2 of their art pieces FROM THE ART MOVEMENT. Write a paragraph explaining why they are part of the art movement (what colors do they use in their art that is similar to the art movement? What subject matter do they draw that is part of the art movement? Explain why).
4) One opinion slide with a 5 sentence paragraph explaining what you like/dislike about the art movement style.
Additionally, the presentation requires the following rules…:
Easy to read – Dark font on light background, Easy to read font, background is a basic picture
Good quality pictures – Make sure all your pictures are large and crisp, with no image being smaller than 600×600 pixels. If your image is blurry, stretched, or pixelated, it will not be accepted.
A minimum of 6 slides total.
Your goal is that you are creating a GOOD LOOKING PRESENTATION that is informative and easy to read. When you are done, you will share the presentation to my email.
Your second assignment is another visual thinking strategy, but this time with movie clips. Please go to the link listed below… Watch each clip, and write your response…
