If you need more ideas for project options, check out the link to my Printography extensions page. You may use any of these 13 Printography Extension options to finish off the projects for the rest of the semester. Remember, you are working on one sketchbook assignment, and one Project option due Thursday each week. Please let me know if you need more help. http://kellhighschoolart.weebly.com/printography-extensions.html
Option #14: Printing with markers
Option #13: #toonmechallenge
This one is for those of you who want to challenge yourself with digital art. The idea is to take a photograph of yourself and then choose a part of that photograph to "cartoon yourself" using any type of digital app such as Photoshop, Pixlr, PicsArt, etc. You can use a phone, iPad, tablet or computer. I am not the best at this, but you can find a ton of online tutorials. I will link a couple below!! Check out all the samples!
Here is another link to a #toonmechallenge tutorial using Photoshop, but Pixlr would also work for this. https://youtu.be/2svf-8y0_pQ
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!
Option #12: Junk mail Paper Dolls
Create a "paper doll" by using junk mail or recycled items! Have fun!!
Option #11: Forced Perspective Photography
Forced perspective is a technique that employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is.
For this short project, take at least one images that utilizes "forced perspective" and upload it to your blog!!
Option #10: Crayon Collagraph Printmaking
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.
Hello Visual Art students,
Here is the plan for the next few weeks of school in visual arts. Students will be working on TWO assignments each week. One will be a sketchbook assignment and one will be a short project assignment. BOTH of these assignments will be due by the end of the day on THURSDAYs. In order to get credit for these assignments, students will need to post them to their individual student blogs. Sketchbooks need to be posted on the "sketchbook" page and short projects will be on the "My Art" page.
I have revised the sketchbook assignment list for the semester: it was sent home through email and is on the sketchbook page of my blog. Please read the directions carefully. The short projects will be from choices that are listed on the class page of my blog. http://kellhighschoolart.weebly.com/draw--paint-1 Right now there is a total of 10 project options for students to choose from and I will continue to add to that list every few days.
If you haven't already done so, please fill out the form letting me know if your student is going to be trying to improve their grade or is content with their grade as of March 13th: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSemGceTxpmt_7mX0lLNTPzaDYs5syC1raSwLAwxTbzy-NdT4w/viewform?usp=sf_link
Please let me know if you have any questions!
