WELCOME TO INTRODUCTION TO ART!

THIS COURSE IS FOR 9-12 Grade Students



This course must be taken before any other art course (class of 2016). In Introduction to art, the student will study and use the elements of art, principals of design when creating and evaluating art. Methods of 2D and 3D art and design will be explored while working with drawing, painting, sculpture, and ceramics media and techniques.

Emphasis will be placed on demonstrating the use of techniques, creativity, originality, craftsmanship, classroom expectations, and self evaluation. Students will create a blog to showcase and discuss art.


Assignments will be posted with the most recent towards the bottom.

Check out your google calendar for this course - for more day to day information.

ZENTANGLE DRAWINGS:

Zentangle Drawings:
What is Zentangle ??

Also know as zendoodle or tangled drawing….. It is a controlled doodle or a doodle contained within a predefined framework that is focused on creativity. Artists use a repetition of marks to create patterns, thus developing an overall design or zendoodle.

“The term 'Zentangle' was coined by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts. Maria is a graphic artist who doodled a lot and one day realized that her doodles were putting her into a state of meditation (or zen). The couple decided to explore the concept in more detail and Zentangles were born.”

http://www.zentangle.com/index.php
Pinterest Zentangle Board:
http://pinterest.com/rcomer03/zentangle/

Often these are done as black and white drawings, but aren’t limited to only black and white. Artists usually use some type of writing pen to create these controlled marks.
Why Zentangle?

*Relaxing
*Helps develop creativity
*Relieve or reduces stress
*Improve eye/hand coordination
*Develop/rehabilitate fine motor skills
*Therapy
*Stimulates both right and left brain functions, however usually brings out the more creative right brain side.

POSTAGE STAMP - End of SEMESTER PROJECT

The United States Postal Service has asked student artists to collaborate on new stamp designs to be featured as the next stamp set to be distributed to consumers. They recognize your talents and skills as well as appreciate your connection to a vast audience from students, friends, fans on social media, family, and staff members. Since this stamp set will need to consist of a min. of 2 different stamp designs that they could market as a book of stamps to sell, they have suggested that this be completed with a partner to help divide the workload as well as be able to help each other collaborate on the best designs possible. They not only want your input on this design but also want you to poll an audience to help you gather ideas, after all, they want this design theme to be the most successful yet!

Design Theme:
The design theme is negotiable as long as it is a “Commemorative” Stamp theme that all designs fit so they can sell a book with these designs.
Commemorative meaning - http://www.thefreedictionary.com/commemorative
Stamp Design Requirements for each stamp:

Learning Targets:
(S.1.1) The artist created an original work or art - Stamp Design that includes the following within the design: price, stamp border, and theme or name.
(S.2.1) The artist incorporated the elements of art and principles of design effectively into the final stamp design (line, shape, color, value, form, space, texture). Craftsmanship was also evident as all parts of the stamp design were well-thought out, planned, and finished.

The final stamp design must include the following in order to look like an actual “stamp” and meet the USPS regulations.
*An original graphic or image relating to the theme (this could be done digitally or hand done and must be an original design)
*A stamp price must be included. (see below)
*An outside stamp border - edging design
*Theme or person name - what is this stamp about or the purpose of this stamp?

Stamp Pricing:
As you look at the USPS website of stamps, you will notice that some stamps sell for more than the required $.47 in order to raise money for a cause. This “Save the Vanishing Species” - tiger cub design is $.60 with proceeds going to save vanishing species.

-For your stamp designs you would be able to set the amount on your stamps to allow proceeds to go towards a cause or theme of your choice that you feel is the most worthy, however within your poll or survey of people, you would also need to survey the population in regards to how comfortable they would be with spending extra money knowing that it would go to a cause and how much money would they be comfortable spending extra?
