I'm continuing to add project options every few days, so be sure to scroll back through the distance learning posts to see what you may have missed!
This assignment is something you can do at home using simple materials. We are going to be making a variation of a Collagraph print. A Collagraph is a basic method of printmaking using a board with collage materials glued onto it to form a relief surface with a variety of textures.
The image below was created by an 8th grade student using layered cardboard, then inked up and printed.
This artist, Bonnie Murray, created a collaged block with wallpaper, illustration board, and textured paper. She then inked up the block and hand-printed onto paper.
Option #5: Making a simple sketchbook
Option #6: Patterned Pop Up Photograph
Use a photograph that YOU have taken, print it out, and make it POP UP with these instructions!! Post your final image to your blog. (you may want to show a second photo at an angle of how it's popping up.) This can be in black and white, or color. You could also digitally manipulate the photograph first using the Pixlr App.
Option #7: Shadow Drawing
Take an object, and put it under a light source on a piece of paper. (indoors or sun for outdoors) Use your imagination and then turn that shadow into a drawing. Add additional details if needed! Photograph this (with original object, and post it to your blog.
Option #8: mark-Making with Pen
Carefully read the task below and complete it in your sketchbook or other paper. Post to your blog when you are complete.
Option #9: Iain Macarthur inspired
Research British artist, Iain Macarthur and create a small portrait inspired by his work. This can be in your sketchbook or another small sheet of paper.
Option #4: Multiple views Object Drawing
Find something interesting around your house and draw at least six to nine various views of the object, cropped in so that there is little to no negative space showing. You can use whatever media that is convenient however, you must include VALUE! Below are some examples and the media varies from pencil and charcoal to watercolor and pen and ink. Please let me know if you have questions and be sure to post your final result onto the "D&P2 My Art" page on the blog.
Option #3: Funko Pop Yourself
Funko Inc. is an American company that manufactures licensed pop culture collectibles, best known for its licensed vinyl figurines and bobbleheads. You've seen these around! There are all sorts of pop culture and historical figures created. Did you know that famous artists were made into Funko Pop Characters?
In this option, you can either Funko pop yourself, or an artist who is alive now, creating art. (if you are creating a character based on an artist, be sure to include a photo and name of the artist you are creating along with the Funko pop drawing.)
If you Funko pop yourself, be sure to add accessories of things that describe who you are.
Be sure to post this to your blog on the "D&P1/ My Art" page.

Today, we will be going to the lab to work on uploading images onto our Weebly Blogs. If you don't have your pages on your blog yet, be sure to include that first! The directions for creating a blog and adding pages is located above.
Be sure to have the following pages on your blog:
Next, begin uploading photos onto your weebly blog. See how in the steps below:
Things to think about when taking photos: Be sure you have good quality photos, they are completely strait (not at an angle), they are cropped with no extra space around the edges. (see good vs. bad quality photos below)
Below, you can see a video demo of how to add images to your weebly blog. For a full-screen version, click on this link!!
This altered book page is going to be to create pattern using a SIMPLE stamp that we have carved ourselves. Please check out the video below to see how you can draw out, carve, and then print from your stamp to make really cool designs from a simple stamp!
Check out these other really cool examples below from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer who started #CarveDecember !
We are going to create our stamp and then use it to create pattern on the inside covers of our altered books!!!
Today we will be learning about what we can do for our skeleton backgrounds. We have created two separate options, bubble printmaking and an experimental process where we bled marker onto coffee filters to collage as a background.
You will next cut out your completed shaded skeleton and lay it out on BOTH backgrounds to decide what you like best.
