ART ACTIVITIES

POP-OUT-PAINTING The pop-OUT-painting is a die cut card stock paper that folds and tucks to become a workable 5x5 inch 3D artist’s canvas. When folded into 3D, the front is a blank white 5x5 inch square for artwork, the sides are printed to look like linen cloth and the back folds to create the illusion of a wood canvas stretcher. Leave the canvas flat to create your masterpiece, insert it into the provided Kraft envelope with the folding instructions, and mail it to someone special for a one of a kind gift from the heart! There is no need for scissors, tape or glue to create the paper canvas, just imagination and creativity. Perfect for a gift, assignment, camp, or display! Whatever the reason or use may be, your art is sure to P-O-P! Grades K+, Ages 5+.

The canvas is stretched and back stapled to a solid kiln dried wood frame featuring a .67” profile. The assembly includes a handmade process specially designed to decrease the friction between the brush and the canvas so the canvas is softer for the brush.

Clay Projects

Japanese tea bowls are a great project for beginning clay students. These are pinch pots that do not have to be symmetrical. In fact, they are more “valuable” if they are slightly imperfect. Explain to students the history of the Japanese tea ceremonies and the first tea bowls made. Students may research the internet to see many different styles of tea bowls. Add a “foot” to the bowl by rolling a coil an attaching it to the bottom of the bowl to make it more special than a regular pinch pot.

Intensity

Color is one of the most exciting elements of art. There must be light for us to see colors. A blue shirt does not look blue in the dark; it will not look blue under yellow or red light either. For colors to look their truest, they should be seen under white light. When a ray of white light passes through a glass prism, the ray is bent, or refracted. It is separated into bands of color, called the color spectrum. You can also see the spectrum in a rainbow.

Value refers to the darkness or lightness of a color. If a bit of black is added to red, the color becomes darker and is called a shade. The more black that is added the darker the value gets. If white is added to a color, it becomes lighter and is called a tint.

Intensity refers to the brightness of a color. If we want to dull a color, we mix in a little of its complementary color. If we add a little blue to orange, it dulls the orange; if we add we add a little orange to blue, it dulls the blue.

There are no intense colors used in Morrow Bay Morning above. The colors were muted or neutralized by mixing them with their complementary colors. Colors on the blue and green part of the color wheel

The azaleas are all the same color or hue. Shadows make the values darker in places — and sunlight makes the values lighter. Notice the variety of single color with its shades and tints.

The spectrum can be arranged in a circle called a color wheel which shows how colors are related. The most important colors are the primary colors — red, yellow, and blue. All other colors can be made by mixing them. If we mix two primary colors such as red and blue, we get a secondary color — violet. Orange and green are also secondary colors. If we mix a primary color (red) and one of its neighboring secondary colors (orange), we will get an intermediate color (red-orange). There are six intermediate colors. Complementary colors are colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. Red and green are complementary; so are red-violet and yellow-green.

Collage Artists at Work

2 Murray Zucker. Untitled. Found paper collage

1

Modern collage techniques were started in France in 1912 when Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque glued torn and cut papers to their oil paintings. They included newspaper clippings, headlines, wallpaper, and other found papers to create interesting shapes in their work. In the 1920s, German artist Kurt Schwitters pasted all sorts of papers in random arrangements, and an exciting new kind of art joined painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture as fine art. It was called papier collé, the French term for pasted paper.

Tessellation designs have been used for over 6000 years by designers and mathematicians. Early tessellations were often mosaic tile designs used to decorate the floors and ceilings of palaces and mosques. The tessellated designs in the Alhambra mosque in Spain inspired the Dutch graphic artist M. C. Escher. The contribution Escher made to tessellations was to make them out of recognizable Rotation tessellations can be made from squares where the shapes are cut from adjacent sides and rotated to other adjacent sides. The template is then rotatedfigures. 900 onTessellation a grid until designs are often seen in quilts, fabric, and wallpaper. the pattern is completed.

There are many ways to design tessellation patterns using different modified polygons. These posters illustrate example of tessellations used in mosaic tiles, a quilt, graphic design, and computer art. The three basic types of tessellations are introduced - translation, rotation, and reflection. The step-by-step demonstrations explain how to modify square rotate 90° templates to develop tessellations using a grid and cut paper. These examples are representational figures; however, it is best to start with simple abstract patterns and then develop representational tessellations. Rotation pattern

HISTORY OF TESSELLATIONS

rotate 90° clockwise

“A complex-looking technique is made entirely understandable in this step-by-step program.” – Arts & Activities

Translation tessellations are easily made from squares where shapes are cut from two adjacent sides of a square or rectangle and they slide to the opposite sides to make the template. The template slides horizontally and vertically to complete the pattern.

A tessellation is a potentially endless repeated pattern made up of one or more shapes that fit together like puzzle pieces with no gaps or overlaps. Square and other quadrilaterals, triangles, and hexagons can be used to design tessellations and they can be modified to create interlocking shapes as described in this poster series. The word tessellation is derived from the Latin word tessella meaning tile.

The smallest elements are in the center of the mobile, and the larger elements surround the smaller elements. 5 2 Spiral mobiles are more three dimensional 1 and sculptural than articulated mobiles.

The most basic element of a ➛ tree mobile consists of one element attached to a wire. More commonly, two elements are balanced on either end of a wire.

To create a balance loop, locate the balance point by putting your finger under the wire and move it around until the element is balanced the way you 4 wish. Mark the wire with a pen. Then, using the round nose pliers, bend an overhand loop in the wire at the point you marked with your pen.

The simple one or two element systems can then be joined together to create a three or four element system. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Try different combinations of one, two, three, and four element systems.

Remember that half the fun of making mobiles is that the finished piece is never exactly the same as the original layout. Once you are comfortable with the process, experiment with objects of different sizes and shapes.

How things pass over and under each other can become a challenge in creating articulated mobiles. For your first articulated mobile, try starting with a very small element and increase the size of each element as you add on. To balance elements that very dramatically in size, you will find that you will need to move your balance point much closer to the larger element. Again, try laying the elements out on paper first.

To make an articulated mobile, start with the small bottom shapes and work your way up. To begin, take the two smallest shapes that you have. Take a wire of appropriate length and attach the shapes to each end, keeping in mind that the balance point should be closer to the heavier element.

Continue adding shapes. Notice that unlike a tree mobile, you will generall just have one shape attached to the end of each wire in an articulated mobile. This allows the mobile to move as a single body.

Continue adding shapes until you have achieved your desired result. Notice that in a small to large mobile, the wires will need to be longer as the shapes get larger. Experiment with other shapes when you are ready.

Hang your finished mobile. Watch the movement. Tap on the first smaller piece, and watch how it picks up the next piece, then the next, and so on. Experiment with different shapes, materials, and colors.

To make a spiral mobile, work from small to large, bottom to top. Start by attaching two small elements together with a two-hole attachment. Add a slightly larger element to the first one.

In spiral mobiles, the pieces should be attached at right angles, so you will need your loops to be forward facing. Bend the loop forward 90 degrees to accomplish this.

Continue to add pieces to the mobile, each time making the element a little bigger. Remember to use forward facing loops.

In spiral mobiles, it is preferable to use curved shapes so the pieces do not bump into one another.

Continue adding pieces to the mobile until you are satisfied with the composition.

The shape of a spiral mobile is similar to a nautilus shell. The movement is a gentle, contemplative turn.

To make articulated mobiles, you will need to learn how to make a two-hole attachment instead of using jump rings. First, make two small holes near the edge of the shape. Pass the wire into the hole that is nearer to the edge of the shape, then bend it so that you can put it through the second hole. Once it’s through the second hole, crush the edge of the wire towards the first hole.

To make an end loop, first, grip the end of the wire with the tip of the round nose pliers. Now, bend the wire away from you. Slide the pliers down the wire a little and bend away from you again, then repeat once more until you have made a little loop in the wire. Remember to hold your finger as close to the bend as possible; this prevents the wire from bowing and gives you more control.

Articulation is the concept essential to a Calder-inspired mobile. Many of Calder’s most famous mobiles were simple, elegant articulated systems, beginning with a small shape at the end, then larger and larger pieces attached. Once suspended, a breeze catches the smallest end piece of a mobile and sets it in motion. As it moves, the wire turns until its loop catches, then the wire becomes rigid to the next wire, and picks up that second wire, Jump rings are an important component of tree mobiles. and continues, creating a beautiful articulatedJump movement. rings are small circular loops that can be used to

Tree Mobiles are mobiles arranged in a branching system with similarly sized elements. Think of the elements of a tree mobile as a trunk, branches, and small leaves. An important concept to remember when you are creating any mobile is to start at the bottom (small systems) and work you way to the top. Tree mobiles are great for collections of items such as stamps, bottle caps, seashells, coins, or other simply small abstract shapes.

Calder was inspired by the colorful nonobjective work of Piet Mondrian, Joan Miró, and Wassily Kandinsky. Calder’s discovery had a profound effect on modern art. Artists today such as Christopher Gulick, Jack Bischke, and Rick Bissel continue to be inspired by this art form, and continue to influence its evolution.

There are many ways to create mobiles. These posters focus on three main types of mobiles—tree mobiles, articulated mobiles, and spiral or petal mobiles. The most important concept in mobile making is balance points. Once you have mastered the art of creating loops and balancing, you will be amazed at the variety that you will be able to achieve with simple materials and a little imagination.

CRYSTAL PRODUCTIONS - TESSELATIONS / MOBILE

American artist Alexander Calder (1898–1976) is known as the Father of the Mobile. In 1931, Calder created his first kinetic sculpture and gave form to an entirely new type of art. His first kinetic sculpture moved by systems of cranks and motors, and were dubbed “mobiles” by Marcel Duchamp—in French mobile refers to both “motion” and “motive.” Calder abandoned the mechanical aspects of these works when he discovered that he could create mobiles that would move on their own with currents of air or wind. The unpredictable movement of a mobile is a major part of its charm.

What Is A Mobile? Have you ever looked at a painting and wondered what it might be like to step inside it or to see pieces of it moving? Movement is what mobiles are about. Whether hanging in an art museum or over an infant’s crib, a series of decorative elements suspended from wires or similar material is called a mobile. But how did mobiles get their name? Where, exactly, did they come from? And more importantly, where in the wide world of art do mobiles fit?

Perspective is a way to create the illusion of three dimensions (height, width, and depth) on a two-dimensional surface (height and width). In linear perspective the sizes of objects diminish as they get farther away from the viewer, and parallel lines get closer together as they recede in space, until they converge at a vanishing point (VP).

If scenes or objects are directly ahead of the viewer, the parallel lines or sides of objects leading away from the viewer will converge at a single vanishing point on the horizon line, an imaginary line that is exactly at the height of the observer’s eyes (eye level).

Two-Point Perspective

In two-point perspective, the box, building, or other object is not seen directly facing the viewer. Instead, we can see two sides of the object, and each recedes toward its own vanishing point on the horizon line. Two of the three dimensions (width and depth) are receding from the viewer and from the picture plane. When we can clearly see two walls or two sides of boxes, two-point perspective must be used.

If all boxes, buildings, or other objects are parallel to each other, they have parallel sides and edges. To draw these objects, two vanishing points are all that is necessary on the same horizon line.

This is multiple-point perspective. regular: refers to parts, shapes, or intervals or angles that are consistently of the same size.

In this arrangement, the sizes vary and some objects are higher than others, but you cannot tell anything about depth or space, or how the forms are related in space.

Overlapping and Size Relationships combined

Draw a line from the far corner of the roof to the third vanishing point. This gives us the slope and shape of the roof in three-point perspective.

plane: any flat surface. Consultant: Gerald F. Brommer

VP

shadow: the darkest part of an object or person that is away from a direct light source. It defines form in a painting or drawing and indicates three dimensions.

three-quarter view: to look at a building or object slightly from one side, so that two sides can be seen at the same time.

vanishing point: a point on the horizon line toward which all parallel lines appear to converge. view point: the place from which the artist views the scene. In a work of art, it is located on the eye level, directly ahead of the artist. vertical: upright. Vertical lines and shapes are perpendicular to the horizon line or eye level.

The 6 Perspective Posters include:

vanishing lines: the lines that converge at the vanishing point.

oblique: a slanting view, or any diagonal line. observer: the artist or other person looking at a scene or object. Consultant: Gerald F. Brommer

parallel: refers to lines or things that actually are and remain equidistant at all points. Horizon line

4. Draw a second vertical pole at any distance from the first that you wish. It should just reach the top and bottom perspective lines. 5. Measure and find the center of the first pole. Draw a perspective line from the center of the pole to the vanishing point.

• One-Point Perspective • Two-Point Perspective • Three-Point Perspective

perpendicular: upright. At right angles to the horizon line or eye level. perspective: the technique of showing threedimensional objects on a flat, two-dimensional surface. It creates the illusion of depth in art. picture plane: the flat surface (paper or canvas) on which an artist draws or paints.

How to draw a stack of books that are not parallel in multiple-point perspective 1. Draw a horizon line on a wide piece of paper. 2. Draw the bottom book in one-point perspective. 3. The front edge of the second book should be at or near the top edge of the book below it. Place two vanishing points for the second book on the eye level or horizon line. 4. Establish new vanishing points for the third and fourth books. Place the front edge of each book in the stack on or near the top edge of the book below it.

• Multi-Point Perspective • Atmospheric Perspective • Circles and Cylinders

Vocabulary ground line: in painting, the line where objects (walls, steps, trees, people, etc.) meet the ground.

horizontal: describes a level line running from left to right. Horizontal shapes are wider than they are high.

isometric: describes a drawing in which all parallel lines are drawn parallel, rather than converging or diverging. Engineers use isometric drawings. horizon line: a horizontal line that is even with the artist’s eye. In a view of an ocean or linear perspective: see poster #1. flat desert scene, it is where earth and sky measure: the act of determining the length, meet. Also called eye level. width, or height of an object or area. guide line: a trial line that temporarily helps an artist determine direction or shapes of objects.

Perspective is a way to create the illusion of three dimensions (height, width, and depth) on a two-dimensional surface (height and width). In linear perspective the sizes of objects diminish as they get farther away from the viewer, and parallel lines get closer together as they recede in space, until they converge at a vanishing point (VP).

If scenes or objects are directly ahead of the viewer, the parallel lines or sides of objects leading away from the viewer will converge at a single vanishing point on the horizon line, an imaginary line that is exactly at the height of the observer’s eyes (eye level).

How to paint a simple subject using atmospheric perspective

Not all perspective drawing and painting relies on lines receding to vanishing points. Artists can also use atmospheric inward as they recede upward and perspective to create a sense of deep space. Fog, mist, smoke, and haze come between the viewer and distant objects, away from you. All three surfaces causing them to have less detail, softer edges, less color intensity, less value contrast, and/or grayer and cooler colors (height, width, and depth) are than objects up close. Artists can use this information to create a feeling of three-dimensional depth in their work. receding from your eye. The eye level in this photograph is well below the bottom of the image.

In two-point perspective, the box, building, or other object is not seen directly facing the viewer. Instead, we can see two sides of the object, and each recedes toward its own vanishing point on the horizon line. Two of the three dimensions (width and depth) are receding from the viewer and from the picture plane. When we can clearly see two walls or two sides of boxes, two-point perspective must be used.

How things pass over and under each other can become a challenge in creating articulated mobiles. For your first articulated mobile, try starting with a very small element and increase the size of each element as you add on. To balance elements that very dramatically in size, you will find that you will need to move your balance point much closer to the larger element. Again, try laying the elements out on paper first.

Consultants: Timothy Rose and Alexander Rose To make articulated mobiles, you will need to learn how to make a two-hole attachment instead of using jump rings. First, make two small holes near the edge of the shape. Pass the wire into the hole that is nearer to the edge of the shape, then bend it so that you can put it through the second hole. Once it’s through the second hole, crush the edge of the wire towards the first hole.

HISTORY OF TESSELLATIONS Tessellation designs have been used for over 6000 years by designers and mathematicians. Early tessellations were often mosaic tile designs used to decorate the floors and ceilings of palaces and mosques. The tessellated designs in the Alhambra mosque in Spain inspired the Dutch graphic artist M. C. Escher. The contribution Escher made to tessellations was to make them out of recognizable figures. Tessellation designs are often seen in quilts, fabric, and wallpaper.

A tessellation is a potentially endless repeated pattern made up of one or more shapes that fit rotate 90° clockwise together like puzzle pieces with no gaps or overlaps. Square and other quadrilaterals, triangles, and hexagons can be used to design tessellations and they can be modified to create 90° interlocking shapes as described rotate in this poster counterclockwise series. The word tessellation is derived from the Latin word tessella meaning tile.

Articulation is the concept essential to a Calder-inspired mobile. Many of Calder’s most famous mobiles were simple, elegant articulated systems, beginning with a small shape at the end, then larger and larger pieces attached. Once suspended, a breeze catches the smallest end piece of a mobile and sets it in motion. As it moves, the wire turns until its loop catches, then the wire becomes rigid to the next wire, and picks up that second wire, and continues, creating a beautiful articulated movement.

To make an end loop, first, grip the end of the wire with the tip of the round nose pliers. Now, bend the wire away from you. Slide the pliers down the wire a little and bend away from you again, then repeat once more until you have made a little loop in the wire. Remember to hold your finger as close to the bend as possible; this prevents the wire from bowing and gives you more control.

Rotation tessellations can be made from squares where the shapes are cut from adjacent sides and rotated to other adjacent sides. The template is then rotated 900 on a grid until the pattern is completed.

History of Mobiles

Calder was inspired by the colorful nonobjective work of Piet Mondrian, Joan Miró, and Wassily Kandinsky. Calder’s discovery had a profound effect on modern art. Artists today such as Christopher Gulick, Jack Bischke, and Rick Bissel continue to be inspired by this art form, and continue to influence its evolution.

The unpredictable movement of a mobile is a major part of its charm.

Tree Mobiles are mobiles arranged in a branching system with similarly sized elements. Think of the elements of a tree mobile as a trunk, branches, and small leaves. An important concept to remember when you are creating any mobile is to start at the bottom (small systems) and work you way to the top. Tree mobiles are great for collections of items such as stamps, bottle caps, seashells, coins, or other simply small abstract shapes.

Try to figure out what materials these artists used in their work. When working with collage, you can use anything that helps create the kind of surface or image you wish to develop. You can even recycle old collages or paintings, or use non-art materials.

Tree Mobiles

Have you ever looked at a painting and wondered what it might be like to step inside it or to see pieces of it moving? Movement is what mobiles are about. Whether hanging in an art museum or over an infant’s crib, a series of decorative elements suspended from wires or similar material is called a mobile. But how did mobiles get their name? Where, exactly, did they come from? And more importantly, where in the wide world of art do mobiles fit?

Today, artists create fascinating images by gluing paper, photos, fabric, metal, wood, or other items to their surfaces. Collages can be very simple arrangements of paper shapes or can be extrememely complex.

Collage Artists at Work

Introduction to Mobiles

1

Modern collage techniques were started in France in 1912 when Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque glued torn and cut papers to their oil paintings. They included newspaper clippings, headlines, wallpaper, and other found papers to create interesting shapes in their work. In the 1920s, German artist Kurt Schwitters pasted all sorts of papers in random arrangements, and an exciting new kind of art joined painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture as fine art. It was called papier collé, the French term for pasted paper.

The Art of Illusion

This image is actually an ambiguous figure in which the brain switches between seeing a duck and a rabbit. The image was used by American psychologist Joseph Jastrow to point out that we see with the mind as well as the eye.

The Art of Illusion

Stare at one of the wheels, or look at the black center of each circle, and it will appear to be motionless, but the other wheels will seem as though they are turning. When you move your eyes to the next black center, the previous one will move after you take your eyes away from it.

and

Aboriginal Art The art of Australia's Aborigines is explored in this program from prehistoric cave art to the paintings of contemporary artists. We see how art permeated every aspect of Aboriginal life and how it reflected their traditional ways as they painted on sheltered cave walls, carved on living trees, and engraved on flat rocks. Contemporary artists have adapted to an ever-changing world, but still keep their links with the ancient traditions. The issues of dispossession, broken families, racism, and an intensification of the sense of cultural identity provide strong motivation for painting themes.

Experience Catlin’s epic journey up the Missouri River, following parts of the Lewis and Clark trail, hear about his frontier adventures as told by Catlin himself, and learn about this incredible encounter of two cultures through the voices of Native Americans today. In the 1830s, Catlin was the first major artist to travel beyond the Mississippi and live with American Indians, eventually recording the “manners and customs” of 50 Plains tribes in his Indian Gallery. Catlin embodies many characteristics that we think of as quintessentially American—he was a visionary, an explorer, and an entrepreneur who risked everything for his art.

DVDS Crystal presents a library of motivational art programs produced with leading artists who inspire and instruct while bringing concepts and theories to life.

CRYSTAL

Among the native peoples who inhabit the unforgiving rocky landscape of the American Southwest, a tradition of magnificent ceramics and crafts has evolved for over a thousand years. The artists’ striking, imaginative designs respond to a spiritual as well as a practical desire to create an equilibrium between their life and the inhospitable landscape they inhabit. Visit Native American communities in New Mexico and Arizona, inhabited by the Hohokan, Mogollan, and Anasazi peoples. We are introduced to bold designs and art forms, ranging from stunning vases and bowls to hand-woven Navajo blankets to storyteller figures. With Hand and Heart introduces us to an intensely personal and spiritual art form. Features Lucy Lewis, Jody Falwell, Margaret Tafoya, Toni Roller, Fannie Nampeyo, Thomas Polacca, Mary Reed, and Helen Cordero.

Trees in the Sunset ✪ DIRECTIONS 1. Practice trees. On 8" x 11" copy paper, dip and stamp the edges of cardboard and poster board pieces in black tempera paint. Trunks are created by repeatedly stamping the corrugated edge of cardboard pieces side-by-side (above). Use the edge of poster board for the finer connecting detail. This student work (right) shows the creative variety that can be achieved in this process.

"Wisdom"- Acrylic on canvas courtesy of the artist, ©2010 Lee Oskar, www.leeoskarpaintings.com

CONCEPTS: Progressive rhythm, Silhouette & Blending This project teaches children how to think beyond the standard “lollipop” style tree symbol to an expression of rhythm and movement in line. The process involves forming a line that continually divides and expands into smaller and smaller parts to form trees with expressive roots, trunks, branches, and delicate intertwining twigs. This process employs painting without a brush, as trees are “stamped out” using the edges of cardboard and poster board pieces that are dipped into tempera paint. The instant results of this stamping process are something children respond to. Warm and cool colors are blended to create a vibrant sunset. Set against this backdrop, the winter tree becomes a beautiful silhouette. Before creating the final tree in their 12" x 18" painted sunset, children try different styles on 8" x 11" sheets of paper. Many times “practice” trees become a work of art in themselves. An expressive example is painter Lee Oskar’s acrylic on canvas painting “Wisdom” shown top right.

2. Paint the sunset. Begin with the yellow base of the sky. Paint 1/2 - 2/3 of the vertical sheet with yellow temperapaint.

4. Add red. Repeat the process in Step 3 by adding red paint above the orange paint and blending.

M A T E R I A L S ◆ Tempera paint: (yellow, orange, red, magenta, blue, black) ◆ Water and soft, round paint brush ◆ Cardboard and poster board (cut into small rectangular pieces) ◆ 12" x 18" Bright White construction paper ◆ Aluminum foil ◆ 8½" x 11" Copy paper

5. Add blue and purple. Continue to blend colors until the whole paper is filled. 3. Add orange and blend down into the yellow. While the yellow paint is still wet, brush the orange paint down into the yellow paint using long sweeping motions to blend the two colors.

Watercolor paint sets Paintbrush White construction paper (not copy paper) Water cup Crayons

Materials that you need:

8 x 11 Copy paper Colored Pencils or Crayons 9 x 12 construction paper to frame

Discuss: Talk about shapes.

What are the differences: circles and ovals? squares and rectangles? fat triangles and skinny triangles? What about shapes with no names?

Discuss: There are many types of paint. The type that they are going to use is called watercolor paint. Watercolors have to have lots of water to work, and you have to use a paintbrush. Introduce them to “Peter the Paintbrush” He has hair on his head, not on his toes. Explain that you never want to jam Peter’s head into the paint - his hair will get wrecked. Instead you need to be gentle and use a back and forth motion when adding the water to the paint.

Once they have drawn their second person – have them check the three realistic people goals before they add color. Have them do the finger measuring on the second person, confirm the shoulders are in the correct place, and make sure everything is a shape so that they can be colored in. Then they are ready for color!

Measure your volunteer (or another one) from the top of their head to their waist, and from their waist to their feet. Next, choose another student who is much taller and compare the same thing. Show how you can measure this equal length with your fingers when you are drawing.

Clean Up: Ask students to write their name by their drawings. Crop them if there is a lot of blank space. Frame their people with a construction paper frame. For more variety double frame it with two colors.

Demonstrate: Create two different “shape people”- one with

before you use another color. You can blot your paintbrush on a paper towel if you really want all of the color out. You need to swish your brush after EVERY color!

This means that they are ready to go forward and draw their second person! Help students; give a pep talk to those who need it. “You are so close, you just need to move those arms up to the shoulders.” Or “Great job, the legs are a little too long, just shorten them up a little.”

up and point to the following body parts as you discuss the shapes. • a circle for the head. • a small square for the neck. • an oval or rectangle for the body. • long skinny ovals or rectangles for the arms and legs. (This year talk about how your arms and legs are actually two shapes connected by your knees and elbows.) • any shape for the hands and feet.

Finally fill in your shapes with color so that they look solid. Tell the artists that they are going to do a practice person first. Their second drawing they will be adding color to make them look more solid. Remind the students that they are trying to draw realistic people. If they were drawing cartoons there wouldn’t be any rules. Explain that you will be going around and looking for three things: • Are the two measurements equal (Head to waist, and waist to feet)? • Are the arms coming out of the shoulders (not the stomach)? • Is your person made out of shapes?

Some of this lesson is a repeat from my kindergarten drawing lesson. I teach “Drawing People” every year. I start with the basics and add more and more details as they progress in their skills. It is amazing seeing their growth from year to year. In first grade I make the distinction that this is a realistic person they are drawing.

Goals: Students will create a watercolor and crayon picture.

Tip: If a darker color over-powers a lighter color in the blending process, rinse the brush clean, blot it on a paper towel to remove excess water, and continue to blend the t wo colors.

4 A Mosaic Mask

mosaic: art consisting of a design made of small pieces of colored stone or glass

Grade Level 5-6

Concept Masks can be formed over the face and decorated with a paper mosaic

Skill Modeling foil and creating a paper mosaic

Resource Aztec Mask, Private Collection

Materials

Heavy-duty aluminum foil; newspapers; masking tape; wallpaper paste; black tempera paint; black acrylic paint; brushes;clear, glossy polymer acrylic; magazines with colored pages; scissors; white glue.

Masks for rituals and ceremonies were often made by inlaying small pieces of precious stones with great care. Such a mask is the Turquoise Mosaic Mask made by Aztec Indians seen on the left. Using the same technique with small squares of colored papers, a student made the mask shown on the right. You’ll learn how to make a mosaic mask also in this experience.

3 Place the mask on crumpled newspaper to preserve the form, then paint the entire mask with black acrylic paint.

Procedure

6 Cover the entire mask with squares. Eyes and a mouth should be cut from the pictures and glued to the mask, also.

Discuss the examples and point out that masks for rituals and ceremonies are made with care using special, often costly, materials. The Aztec people, for example, buried their dead leaders with masks made with turquoise and coral. Students will simulate real mosaic stones with paper on their masks. Students will tear a strip of aluminum foil long enough to fold double and fit generously over their face. They should crumple it lightly and form it gently over the face, exaggerating the nose. Turn the foil under all around to make a neat edge and reinforce the mask. Then, it should be painted with black acrylic paint. Study pictures of Mexican mosaic masks and note the variations of colors in the pieces of stone. Find a variety of blue, turquoise, and jade pages in discarded magazines, and cut the colors into strips about 1 3 ⁄2- ⁄4-in. wide. Use a toothpick to apply a spot of glue to each small mosaic piece as it is cut from a strip leaving tiny spaces between each one. Work in rows around the facial features, then fill in the rest of the surface with more pieces of varying colors.When all of the pieces have been glued on, coat the mask with clear, glossy acrylic polymer, sealing down all loose corners. Extension: A papier maché mask can be made by placing the foil mask over a taped-down wad of newspaper, on a stack of newspaper, to help preserve the form as torn patches of newspaper dipped in wallpaper paste are applied.Torn, not cut, 2 x 2-in. patches are dipped into the creamy paste, pulled through two fingers to remove excess, and overlapped to make a thin layer. More pieces from the colored or comic section are used for alternate layers assuring an even coverage of four to five layers.To insure easy removal from the foil form later, the first layer should be applied with water only, not paste. Before the papier maché dries completely, remove it from the form, trim, and cut out any desired openings, like the eyes or mouth. Let the mask dry thoroughly before painting it all over with black acrylic or tempera paint followed with a finish of clear acrylic polymer.The mask can then be decorated with the mosaic pieces in the same manner as the foil mask.

4 Select brightly colored pictures from magazines and cut out small squares for the mosaic pieces. Here different shades of green and blue resembling turquoise were selected.

1 Double a piece of heavy aluminum foil large enough to cover your face. Crumple it lightly and form it gently to the shape of your face.

7 Place a piece of tape on the inside of the mask on both sides. Punch holes, then insert cord so the mask can be worn.

2 Turn over the edges of the foil to make a neat outline.

................................................................................................................................................................................ 60

5 Glue the squares in rows across the mask, leaving tiny spaces between them.

8 This is the completed mosaic mask. Can you see how the tiny squares of colored pictures resemble inlaid precious stones?

Art and Science

Photo by Nancy Walkup

History

proficient in posing questions, designing problems based upon those questions, and then finding and evaluating solutions based upon collected data. Art and science also share a hands-on discovery approach.

Science Domains Art production, art discussion, and art writing activities can provide concrete examples for exploration of science topics such as mass, matter, and chemical reactions. For example, what does a sculptor need to know about mass and matter? Why do printmakers need to understand how certain chemicals react with each other? Why do painters need to know if the colors they use will remain true over time? When students participate in activities that allow them to think and act as artists facing these problems, meaningful solutions result because the scientific concepts have been applied to a real-life experience.

Technology In both art and science, students are furnished opportunities to develop competency in decisionmaking. Technology in both content areas emphasizes that students develop fundamental abilities associated

with the process of design or planning. For example, in art as well as in science, students identify and state problems, plan and implement solutions, and then evaluate the effectiveness of the solution. Students who are able to isolate a design problem, state it, and then think it through to a logical solution are applying critical thinking skills that relate to everyday solutions. Technology also holds fundamental applications for the correlation of art and science, as it may be addressed through graphic, structural, and organizational design or through the use of media. The computer can be used for the presentation of content or as a medium for creating art. The rapid growth of the Internet and related technologies has already created a demand for the expertise of people knowledgeable about both art and science. Today’s students have grown up with computers and the Internet and are acclimated to fast-paced, simultaneous, and hypertext access to a broad range of information through a number of devices. Because these students are as likely to create and design digital information as they are to use it, effective art teaching should include interactive and engaging use of technology by students.

Science, like art, has its own history. It is a history that continues and is rapidly changing. By studying the chronologies of art and science, students are able to see the role that both fields have played in the development of cultures throughout time. By studying the histories of art and science, students can track the change in approaches to artistic and scientific inquiry and production. Additionally, the impact that science has had upon art and the ways that art has depicted science can be readily perceived. For example, tracking the history of art materials and media over time would be a meaningful exercise to discover how scientific developments have impacted the art world. Many of today’s students may be surprised to discover that paints were not always available in premixed, ready-to-use tubes and that artists in the past had to grind and mix their own.

Art, Science, and Writing Artists and scientists write and/or draw in diaries or journals about their daily work. Likewise, students can write in diaries or journals about their art and science activities. Artists and scientists write notations about their work, describe problems, and brainstorm solutions in sketchbooks or notebooks. Similarly, students can sketch and write about their work, problems, and solutions to problems.

individually or in groups of two or more, writing about art and science experiences helps students develop stronger communication skills and is a valuable component of any interdisciplinary connection.

Differentiation Take into consideration individual students’ developmental needs, readiness levels, and learning styles when planning integrated art and science lessons. Whenever possible, offer options for students that will enhance their learning. Students can work in small groups, with partners, or alone. Other students may benefit through the use of stencils, patterns, printed or illustrated step-by-step directions, or directions in both English and another language.

Careers that Require both Art and Science Students with a strong interest in art and science may want to consider careers that combine both interests. Medical and scientific illustrators, graphic artists, web site and software designers, industrial and product designers, architects, and animators all need to possess significant understandings of both art and science. Nevertheless, all students can benefit from meaningful educational experiences that are based on art and science.

Why do painters need to know if the colors they use will remain true over time? Why do printmakers need to understand how certain chemicals interact with each other? How did the invention of acrylic paint change painting? Which chemicals make up the ingredients for a ceramic glaze? Technological advances in media continue to prompt changes in the materials and methods that artists use. Compare this timeline of art materials with historical events of the same time periods.

Writing summary sentences, elaborating upon details, finding main ideas, predicting outcomes, pinpointing causes and effects — the list of writing topics for art and science is virtually endless. Whether working

This means they gave me pictures or printed cloth that a customer loved and wanted me to copy the general feeling of the pattern in color and design. The pattern would have to have significant changes so there wouldn’t be any copyright problems. The fun part when doing this type of work was the colorings or different color combinations that needed to be done for each pattern (usually at least 3).

Stephen Wiltshire (Born 1974) British (born of West Indian parents). Autism.

“do the best you can and never stop. ” —stephen wiltshire

second edition

Here’s an opportunity to learn the world’s most famous architectural and historic landmarks. Stephen, who is described as an autistic savant— places him the rare classification as artistic genius.The rest of us may create ink drawings by using fine tipped permanent black markers (Stephen uses a Staedtler pen). The activity will ask students to regard the images that the teacher makes available through magazines, books, and, of course, the internet. Some important icons are: Giza & the pyramids of Egypt (Africa); The Taj Mahal at Agra, India; Stonehenge in England –a pre-historic and sacred monument in England and the temples in Bali (Indonesia), “land of a thousand temples.” In Europe, we have the Eiffel Tower to represent Paris, France; in England, there’s the Clock Tower in London, affectionately known as Big Ben; and in Rome, Italy, there still stands a symbol of the ancient city—the Colosseum…in Greece, the Parthenon. In Mexico you’ll find another mighty pyramid—Chichen Itza on the Yucatan Peninsula…in North America, the Chrysler Building towers over New York City. Not very far away, stands the Statue of Liberty—a national monument that represents a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The teacher may add to or edit these suggestions.

Have you heard about a brilliant artist whose phenomenal memory enables him to remember entire cityscapes…then draw them in exacting detail, including number of windows? Meet Stephen Wiltshire, who was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. His speech was delayed until he was five and said his first word: paper. At an early age, he began sketching landmark London bridges, among other subjects. By the age of nine, he learned to speak fully—and also received his first commission! It was from the late Prime Minister Edward Heath, who wanted Stephen to draw the Salisbury Cathedral. His artistic career was launched! His next ambitious project at age ten was called The London Alphabet – a group of pictures that illustrated famous landmarks in alphabetical order, from Albert Hall (a famous musical venue) to the London Zoo. By the 1980s, Stephen had literary representation for a book had written—and a visible artistic presence. He was recognized by the late Hugh Casson, former president of London’s Royal Academy of Art, and placed under his mentorship…Stephen was identified as “possibly the best child artist in Britain.”

activity Famous Monuments and Landmarks Around the World: A Panorama

The young man attended college successfully—with a keen interest in drawing and painting. His career developed, along with his excitement for capturing entire cities with his pen. As his level of public recognition grew, Stephen was invited on many helicopter rides, where was able to mentally record the architecture of iconic cities around the world. His mind is like a camera—he is able to record the finest of details. His fame grew. Not only does Stephen have his own gallery in the Royal Opera Arcade (with the Queen’s blessings)…he seems to be drawing his way around the world, creating magnificent panoramic cityscapes. He’s visited Tokyo, Rome, Frankfurt, Madrid, Dubai, Jerusalem, Sydney, Paris, and Shanghai—to name a few! Yet Stephen has a particular fondness for New York City. When he was only five years old, he drew his own imaginary apartment. Later, in a London Times article, he was quoted as saying, “I’m going to live in New York someday. I’ve designed my penthouse on Park Avenue.” Stephen did travel to New York City, where he sketched the legendary skyscrapers of Manhattan. Stephen created a 250 mile long panoramic memory of New York which is on display on a giant billboard at JFK Airport. Stephen has referred to New York as his “spiritual home.” Knowing this artist’s love of buildings, monuments, and architecture, it is easy to understand his attraction to the great American city.

(Students will work collaboratively to create a panorama of world landmarks and monuments.)

Here’s the tricky part (and Stephen’s first word): paper. Ideally, the teacher would pre-cut 5-6 foot lengths of white paper from a roll. This method assumes that the art room has the surfaces to accommodate the paper lengths. Confident students would divide into groups to discuss the placement of their choices, and then draw them directly on to the paper. To combine the various monuments and landmarks, students will consider compositional ideas for the sky and ground to create a unified whole and—although this is a liberal interpretation of the concept of panorama— this finished piece will have a large scale, panoramic appearance! The finished product will take us around the world. Tip: color may used at teacher’s discretion. If watercolor is selected, the markers must the permanent non-toxic kind…or they will “bleed” the image. If other water sensitive markers are used, color pencils or crayons are a fine to use. An alternative for students who might have a hard time with the previously mentioned approach: students will individually (or “buddy system” style) draw a straightforward image of their world landmarks on drawing paper. Pencils (first) and larger markers may work here. The teacher can then decide if students should cut out and glue their drawing on large paper or on a few display boards when finished. The end result will still take us through their visual accomplishments!

What do all these creative Art Heroes have in common? They didn’t let their conditions stop them. In fact, they “dance” with their disabilities ! There are some artists with disabilities who may feel that their conditions are a creative gift, and don’t particularly want to be known as brave. It is the observation of this author that life itself takes courage. We can’t help but admire people—any people , who manage their lives with purpose and conviction, in the face of daunting circumstances. In Yiddish, this is called chutzpah –which is an attitude of indomitable determination. After watching my young students who were blind paint with success…how can that not impress me as an artist and teacher? To quote Simona Azori, an incredible artist and dancer who has no arms… “Being able to solve problems depends on how you approach them.” Practical, yes. Yet she and her art are dazzling . I do believe disability can fire up creativity…I still believe in courage…and in Art Spirit!

“ I had placed my stick on the table, as I do every evening. It had been specially made to suit my height, to enable me to walk without too much diFFiculty. As I was standing up, a customer called to me: ‘Monsieur, don’t Forget your pencil.’ It was very unkind, but most Funny.” – Toulouse-lautrec

Textile Design/Science

Timeline of Art Materials

Artists and scientists write sequential steps to follow in the creation of artworks or formulas. Students can write the steps they take to create an artwork or to devise an experiment. The sketchbooks of artist and inventor Leonardo da Vinci, the original Renaissance man and interdisciplinary model, provide a fine subject of study for this approach. In his sketchbooks, da Vinci recorded drawings of his artwork and inventions along with written notes and ideas.

AND STEPHENS

Through observation and interpretation of masterworks or by creating works of art that depict local, national, or global environments, students are better able to visualize the impact of society upon the natural world. Contemplating personal and social issues through works of art helps students to better understand the characteristics of populations, resources, the environment, and the impact that individuals and groups have upon them.

Remember when I told you about the Wandjina who are the mouthless ghostlike creatures who swirl around in the monsoon? Well, they have a leader and his name is Namar. He’s also a Wandjina, and he’s called the big boss in the sky because he gave the Wandjina their language, culture, and law. On the picture on the next page, Namar is represented with antenna-like shapes extending from his head. The little white circles are baby clouds to help hold him on his planet. The little black dots are magnets to keep the clouds from falling off. And the red and white scarf around his head keeps him warm. The collage was made by an unknown Aborigine artist. I like the smiley faces on the antennas, don’t you?

Water, Water Everywhere... and Claude Monet to Paint It!

Local legend has it that young Monet’s caricatures appeared in the town’s art supply and frame shop window to the enjoyment of the town folk, who followed the pictures as they were replaced each week in a gold frame. Boudin — who painted en plein air (in open air ) — saw Monet’s amusing caricatures at the shop. He immediately recognized exceptional creativity. Boudin introduced Monet to en plein air painting and became his mentor. Born to Paint

As you can see in Beach Scene at Trouville, the “Age of Tourism” begins!

Caricature was very popular in France during

Monet’s era. Students can draw a portrait of a famous person, or do a self-portrait. Remember

to exaggerate the facial features and hair!

One might say that Monet was destined to become the most admired painter of the 19th century. There is no doubt that his talent, like his spirit and appetite for life, was enormous. Yet he was also in the right place at the right time. It so happened that artist Eugène Boudin — sometimes called “the world’s littlest Impressionist” — lived nearby. Other artists, like Gustave Courbet, an outdoor painter and naturalist, loved the coast of Normandy and visited frequently.

A wonderful introduction to art & sculpture for children

“Suddenly it was as if a veil had been torn away…I understood what painting could be,” stated Monet. As a result, he would discover his interest: water in its many manifestations…sky, light, color, and the changing atmosphere. He would never be too far away from water no matter where he lived or traveled.

Claude Monet, Caricature of Jules Didier, “Butterfly Man,” c. 1858; pencil and watercolor on paper; 241⁄4 x 17 inches. © 2008 Dover Publications, Inc.

His artistic enthusiasm and outgoing nature appeared early in life. He was hardly an ideal student and doodled in the margins of his notebooks. “I was born undisciplined,” admitted Monet.

One day Boudin said to me “Learn to draw well and appreciate the sea, the light, the blue sky.” I took his advice. — Claude Monet

Claude Oscar Monet was born in Paris in 1840 near the river Seine. He grew up in Le Havre in Normandy, the place where the mouth of the River Seine meets the English Channel in Northern France. Monet had a happy, adventurous childhood by the sea.

LIGHTWEIGHT AND SIMPLE TO HANG

ENVELOPE FOR SENDING YOUR ART

FOLDS INTO A MINI CANVAS

POP-OUT-PAINTING The pop-OUT-painting is a die cut card stock paper that folds and tucks to become a workable 5x5 inch 3D artist’s canvas. When folded into 3D, the front is a blank white 5x5 inch square for artwork, the sides are printed to look like linen cloth and the back folds to create the illusion of a wood canvas stretcher. Leave the canvas flat to create your masterpiece, insert it into the provided Kraft envelope with the folding instructions, and mail it to someone special for a one of a kind gift from the heart! There is no need for scissors, tape or glue to create the paper canvas, just imagination and creativity. Perfect for a gift, assignment, camp, or display! Whatever the reason or use may be, your art is sure to P-O-P! Grades K+, Ages 5+. A-52516-RT

Double Primed

ARTIST CANVAS AMEP’s Artist Canvas is 100% cotton duck and double primed with an acid-free titanium gesso. The canvas is stretched and back stapled to a solid kiln dried wood frame featuring a .67” profile. The assembly includes a handmade process specially designed to decrease the friction between the brush and the canvas so the canvas is softer for the brush. With a finished weight of 12 oz., this heavy bodied canvas supports most techniques making it a preferred all-purpose canvas. Grades ALL+, Ages ALL+.

CANVAS BOARD Featuring the same high quality as AMEP’s stretched canvas, the Canvas Boards are mounted on a sturdy material using a process that prevents fraying and separation. The heavy boards are resistant to bending and warping making them ideal for a multitude of projects. For use with oils, acrylics, and more! Grades ALL+, Ages ALL+.
