Gr10 u4 printmaking

  1. 1. Unit 4: Printmaking & Career Research
  2. 2. Career Research You will research a career related to visual arts. You will choose your career from the list provided. Each student must choose a different career. You will create a poster that communicates the key information about your career. Your poster should include pictures and word design. You will also provide a one-page written description of the key information about that career. When you are finished, you will present your poster in a Gallery Walk allowing your classmates to learn about your career.
  3. 3. Career Research Key Information About Your Career: 1) Name of the Career 2) Description of Duties 3) Tools required 4) Skills needed 5) Education needed 6) Starting salary 7) Availability
  4. 4. Career Research Requirements You must include a bibliography (a list of your sources). is an excellent resource. Failure to hand in a bibliography will result in a ZERO due to plagiarism. NO SECOND CHANCES!
  5. 5. Medieval Art VS. Renaissance Art  Using the following images, you will analyze the differences between Medieval art and Renaissance art.  Consider these aspects of artistic style: 1) use of perspective (realistic or not) 2) flat space VS. natural depth 3) use of symbolism (i.e. religious symbols) 4) use of negative space (is there any empty space?) 5) understanding of human anatomy
  6. 6. Medieval VS. Renaissance Art On the next several slides, you will see examples of Medieval Art on the left and Renaissance Art on the right. With a partner, you will generate a list of characteristics for each period. Be ready to share your ideas.
  7. 7. Renaissance: Raphael, “School of Athens”, 1509 Medieval: The Olivetan Master, “Monks Singing the Office”, 1439 - 1447
  8. 8. Renaissance: Boticelli, “The Birth of Venus”, 1485 Medieval: Martini, “Madonna and Child”, 1326
  9. 9. Renaissance: Michelangelo, “Creation of Adam”, 1511- 1512 Medieval: Giotto, “The Crucifixion”, 1300
  10. 10. Renaissance: Leonardo da Vinci, “The Last Supper”, 1495 - 1498 Medieval: Master of Perea, “Last Supper”, Late 1400s
  11. 11. Medieval VS. Renaissance Art  Medieval  Renaissance 1. Flattened space 2. Unnatural perspective 3. Lack of empty space 4. Sacred themes (support from the Catholic Church) 5. Lots of blue & gold (expensive!) 1. Illusion of depth (chiaroscuro – contrast of light & dark) 2. Use of perspective (1 point, 2 point) 3. Natural use of space a. triangular compositions b. focus on balance & symmetry c. anatomical accuracy 4. Not always sacred themes 5. Natural colours
  12. 12. Math & Measurement in Art  Renaissance artists used grids. (We can use them to ensure accuracy when transferring images.)  Renaissance artists emphasized correct proportions.
  13. 13. Math & Measurement in Art  Renaissance artists used one & two-point perspective. one-point perspective two-point perspective (one vanishing point) (two vanishing points)
  14. 14. Math & Measurement in Art  Renaissance artists used triangular compositional plans.
  15. 15. Raphael, The Holy FamilyDa Vinci, Mona Lisa Find the triangles!
  16. 16. Math & Measurement in Art  Renaissance artists used the Golden Ratio.(Ratio of 1 to 1.6) How: Take the measurement of the shorter side, and multiply it by the golden number (1.6). The result is the length of the longer side. 1 1.6
  17. 17. Examples of the Golden Ratio (Parthenon – a temple in Greece) 11 1.61.6
  18. 18. Golden Ratio (Piero della Francesca – an early Renaissance painter)
  19. 19. Golden Ratio (Mondrian – a Dutch painter in the early 1900s)
  20. 20. The Golden Ratio & Fibonacci's Spiral Fibonacci was an Italian mathematician in Medieval times. He used the golden ratio to create a “perfect” spiral.
  21. 21. The Golden Ratio & Fibonacci’s Spiral Steps: 1. Draw a large golden rectangle. 2. Draw a smaller one that uses the short side of your first rectangle. 3. Draw another smaller rectangle inside the second one (use the short side of the 2nd rectangle). 4. Continue this process until you have very small rectangles. 5. Draw an arc between the opposite corners of each rectangle. Be sure that your arcs connect to each other.
  22. 22. Printmaking  The process is capable of producing multiple copies of the same design. Each copy is known as a print.  Painting or drawing, on the other hand, create a unique, original piece of artwork.  Works printed from a single original create an edition. Each print should be signed and numbered to form a limited edition.
  23. 23. Printmaking  Prints are created from a single original surface, known technically as a plate/matrix.  Common types of plates include: 1. metal - usually copper or zinc for engraving or etching, 2. stone - used for lithography, 3. blocks of wood for woodcuts, 4. linoleum for linocuts, and 5. stencils  You can even use clay or potatoes to make stamps.
  24. 24. Printing with Linoleum  Linoleum is solidified linseed oil.  Heat it to soften it. Carve a design into it.  Relief print: the high parts of your carving will pick up the ink, and print a mirror image of your carving.
  25. 25. Printmaking Tools  Brayer – used to roll out the ink  Carving tools – U-blades, V-blades, large and small (BOTH HANDS BEHIND THE BLADE!)
  26. 26. The Golden Ratio Project  You will create a linocut (like a stamp) of a symbol that means something to you.  You will print an edition of 10 prints to develop your printing skills.  You will then divide your good paper according to the Golden Ratio (at least 3 times), you will fill it using printmaking and drawing/painting.  You will print your linocut at least once on your good paper.  You will create a background inside your golden rectangles using painting and drawing techniques.
  27. 27. Getting Ready 1) In your sketchbook, practise dividing a paper into at least three golden rectangles (1 x 1.6). 2) After watching a demonstration of using linocuts, generate 3 ideas for symbols you might use on your linocut. 3) Think about how you want to fill in your background. Don’t use too many different elements. The challenge in this project is to maintain a sense of unity (matching, harmony).
  28. 28. The Golden Ratio Project: Artist’s Statement 1) How many Golden rectangles (1 x 1.6) did you incorporate into your composition? Where are they, and what are their measurements? 2) Explain why you chose your design for the linocut. What does your symbol mean to you? 3) Evaluate your artwork. Describe how you think you did well. Describe the areas you think should be different. How would you change them?
