Students will create a 2-page spread featuring an "ombre" design in the background out of various hues of tissue paper. They also will include a title and definition for the page in an interesting way.
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.

Altered Book: Form
Students have been focusing on the element of FORM, so we will create a 2-page spread featuring a pop up. In the background students will add collaged papers to fill the negative space. They also included will have a title and definition for the page.

Face Vessel Production Grade!
We will then be introducing Face vessels based on the tradition of face jugs in Edgefield, South Carolina. We will watch a clip from the History Detectives show about Face Jugs and trace the historical tradition as well as connect it to the way artists work and get ideas today. http://www.pbs.org/opb/historydetectives/educators/lessonplan/face-jug/
We will then design our own face vessels to begin building out of clay tomorrow! Below are some ideas to get you thinking!
Students are creating two still life drawings of marshmallows. One on white paper with black charcoal, and one on black paper with white charcoal. Students are using view finders to help crop in and make an interesting composition as well as measuring techniques using their pencil as a measuring tool to find accurate proportions.
The students are working on their Altered book VALUE 2 page spread. Today they will pick a portrait from a magazine and rip out the center section. This section they will replace with a value drawing. Students will be using a range of shading pencils from ebony, HB, and 2H to get very dark and very light value ranges. Students will then glue the magazine portrait into their altered book and decorate the altered book with black and white values for the rest of the 2 page spread. Students must also include the title: Value and its definition: lightness and darkness in a work of art. See the sample below for more ideas.
