Underwater Collage<br />This underwater collage was created using a variety of different techniques. I started off by painting paper for all the different objects. The sand is a mosaic, the rocks are layered pieces of paper, and the seaweed, fishes, and all other sea creatures are cut-out pieces of paper. Last, the bubbles are white charcoal. <br />
Crayon Resist<br />Instead of depicting many different arrangements of plants and flowers I wanted to focus on one plant. Also, I wanted to create a more abstract composition with my color choices. Instead of choosing natural colors, such as greens, I choose to use a wide variety of colors with tints and shades. For the watercolor background I did a blue to green fade.<br />
Self-Portrait and Triptych<br />My theme for the Public Service Announcement was kids should spend more time outside playing games versus inside watching television, playing on the computer, or video games. The majority of the triptych is done in acrylic paint, except the bows which is ribbon, and the message bubbles which is paper and Sharpie. The self-portrait of myself was created using oil pastels.<br />
Accordion Book & Haiku <br />My accordion book was based on the nature theme of butterflies. The cover and back page is covered in fabric, and the cover page is the linoleum block I carved and it has printmaking paint in the grooves. The front page is a series of different prints. The bees, small butterflies, and flowers are stamp prints. The grass is a stencil, and I used a sponge and acrylic paint to create it. The large flowers are Styrofoam prints. The large butterflies are<br />Carved linoleum prints. The background is a blue watercolor wash. The back two pages are painted blue with tempera paint. The flowers are painted with acrylic paint. One butterfly is the Styrofoam block and the other is the print.<br />
3 Additional Prints<br />These three prints are a series of the same composition. This bird print was created by using a stencil, carved with an x-acto knife out of cardstock, and sponged onto construction paper with black acrylic paint. <br />
Paper Mache and Puppet<br />The head of this bird was made out of paper mache. It was created using a balloon and covered in newspaper and paper mache paste. The body was sewn together using canvas cloth and thread. Then, I attached the two using hot glue and a clay paste. Next, I created the wings using wire covered in panty hose, and attached them to the back of the bird using hot glue. Then, I attached wire to the bottom to create feet. I added a pocket to the front of the bird so I could hold it up as a puppet. Then, I painted the entire body with acrylic paint. <br />
Crayon Engraving<br />The crayon engraving is a composition depicting an abstract flower. I used a paperclip to engrave into the paper.<br />
Mosaic<br />This mosaic was created using construction paper tessarae. I began cutting out leaves in different colores of green paper. Then, I cut out rectangular shapes in different shades of brown to create the tree trunk. Next, I cut small pieces of blue, purple, and yellow to make the bird. Last, I used a light blue paper to depict the sky.<br />
Lesson Plan<br />RATIONALE: In life and in art it is important for an individual to be able to recognize, understand, and appreciate other cultures than their own. The art of Africa is one of primitive, traditional, and spiritual instincts. A major element of African art making is the mask. African masks should be seen as part of a ceremonial costume. They are used in religious and social events to represent the spirits of ancestors or to control the good and evil forces in the community (Artfactory.com). The purpose of the lesson is for students to learn about different cultures and their art. As well as art that is created for a specific function. <br /> <br />
