Today are working on creating drawings in 2 point perspective. These are great for doing things like cool, science fiction landscapes! These will be a part of our SPACE page on our altered books.
Students will work on a rough draft using two point perspective. They will need to have at least 7 boxes with at least 2 spots of overlapping. Once they draw their boxes, they will add, windows, doors, niches, etc. They may also embellish the boxes with pipes, ladders, winding sidewalks, etc.
Students have begun drawing out their Superheroes for their Talisman project. They will be required to add shading using colored pencil with light, medium, and dark values.
Students will also add stamping to their background. It should be clustered around their focal point. Only TWO COLORS should be used.
Today we are starting on the background of our Superhero Talisman projects. These will be mixed media works of art incorporating several layers. The focal point will include a superhero "breaking through" the struggles and challenges of the artist.
Today we began working on our backgrounds. We first discussed the Rule of Thirds to have our superhero/focal point located on one of the 4 intersecting points in order to add more interest to our composition.
Once we picked the focal point, we ripped up newspaper and composed it onto 15x12 tagboard to give us movement towards our chosen point. We used watered down glue to glue the newspaper in place and then put 4-5 "challenge items" into the background.
We then mixed up a transparent background with a watercolor wash to completely cover all the layers thus far.
Students will begin designing their superhero! Think about what you want your superhero to be, what powers you want them to have. Will they be realistic? Are they humanoid, animal, robot, or alien!? If you need to, look through the folders at the table for ideas. You can even choose three or more of the samples to morph together your superhero. (ex: head of one character, body/clothes of a second, and hair or weapon of a third character!)
Be sure to make your superhero large to fill the paper. (bigger than your hand!!). If its too small, it will get lost on your background. Check out these ideas below!
As you finish your 10 quality prints, you will lay them out and critique the prints from the best to the worst. Then do the following to each of these categories:
Once ALL of the above is complete, you will paperclip ALL of them to your rubric and photo and turn in to the box for your class.
