I have been an artist for over 25 years, my main focus has been in illustration and comic art style. I have been teaching for 5 years, I have my degrees from Wayne State University both in BFA( Bachelor of Fine and Preforming Arts, and a MAT( Masters of Art and Teaching) . I believe that art can close the gap in communication where words can't be spoken art takes over. The success and exploration art allows students to achieve breeds confidence and joy that will carry over to other aspects in life.
This art project includes aspects of 3 major styles of art.
Realism – art that depicts objects/people in a realistic way. Abstract – art that depicts objects/people in a semi-form creation Non-Objective – art that does not depict any form, just design and expression.
Middle = Realism Left = Abstract Right = Non-Objective.
The images included are examples of the work you can do… however you can choose any realistic image you would like. The key is to focus on each of the 3 types of styles.
This week we have Earth Day, I would like you to create an image on how you would make the Earth better. What can you create to improve life, or protect some aspect of the Earth.
Find a poem that you are drawn to, think about the words and the flow of the poem. what is the deeper meaning behind the poem? Think about what kind of imagery the poem creates, design an image that relates to the poem. Please include the poem with this weeks design.
Sketchbook is due by Friday the 17th please attach in classroom.
I want to challenge each student to step outside their comfort zone, if you like to draw in the cartoon or comic book style focus on using those skills to create in more realistic formats if you like doing animals or floral images work on something non-living or man-made. if you only work in black and white, dive into color.
This week I would like my students to take a tool, device, instrument you use every day.. now imagine its 200 years in the future how would that object look.. how would it get power or would it change in a drastic way? look at how the phone has evolved over the years… or computers…
