    • PowerPoint Presentation Guide ART DEPARTMENT
    • Preparation
    • Organisation   Create a new folder for all downloaded and scanned images and text files  Label files with artist, title and date of work e.g. vangogh_sunflowers_1888.jpg  Do not use existing PowerPoint templates as they are over-automated. Learn to work from a blank canvas.  Open a blank presentation template from PowerPoint.  Do not start designing the presentation until you have collected all the information needed and decided on the main structure
    • Content   Think about the structure of your presentation. Will it be: ‘Chronological’ i.e. discussing artists in order of time; ‘Thematic’, i.e. identifying a particular issue to explore  Give a brief biographical account of the artist and their main accomplishments, but don’t just present facts and figures  Remember to compare and contrast the work of other artists, discussing differences and similarities  As a conclusion, explain how you can develop your own work in response to the ideas and artists you have researched  If possible, include images of your own work
    • Design
    • “ One can always make something complicated, but one can make it better by making it more simple.” – Phillipe Hurel, French Designer
    • Apply a neutral, monotone background to all slides Tip 1
    • Cooler Warmer EXAMPLE
    • Keep to a generic grid using guides for landscape and portrait images. You can create this by going to the Slide Master under ‘View’ Tip 2
    • Insert text here…. EXAMPLE
    • Keep text to a minimum and summarise any information into bullet-points. Use the Powerpoint presentation as a prompt for your notes. Don’t make the mistake of pasting up all of your notes on the screen as it will baffle the viewers. Keep to reading your notes and referring to imagery on screen Tip 3
    • Frank Gehry considers the Walt Disney Concert Hall to be his first major project in his own home town. No stranger to music, he has a long association with the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra, having worked to improve the acoustics of the Hollywood Bowl. He also designed the Concord Amphitheatre in northern California, and yet another much earlier in his career in Columbia, Maryland, the Merriweather Post Pavilion of Music. The Museum of Contemporary Art selected him to convert an old warehouse into its Temporary Contemporary exhibition space while the permanent museum was being built. It has received high praise, and remains in use today. On a much smaller scale, but equally as effective, Gehry remodeled what was once an ice warehouse in Santa Monica, adding some other buildings to the site, into a combination art museum/retail and office complex. The belief that "architecture is art" has been a part of Frank Gehry's being for as long as he can remember. In fact, when asked if he had any mentors or idols in the history of architecture, his reply was to pick up a Brancusi photograph on his desk, saying, "Actually, I tend to think more in terms of artists like this. He has had more influence on my work than most architects. In fact, someone suggested that my skyscraper that won a New York competition looked like a Brancusi sculpture. I could name Alvar Aalto from the architecture world as someone for whom I have great respect, and of course, Philip Johnson." Born in Canada in 1929, Gehry has become a naturalized U.S. citizen. In 1954, he graduated from USC and began work full time with Victor Gruen Associates, where he had been apprenticing part-time while still in school. After a year in the army, he was admitted to Harvard Graduate School of Design to study urban planning. When he returned to Los Angeles, he briefly worked for Pereira and Luckman, then rejoined Gruen where he stayed until 1960. In 1961, Gehry and family, which by now included two daughters, moved to Paris where he worked in the office of Andre Remondet. His French education in Canada was an enormous help. During that year of living in Europe, he studied works by LeCorbusier, Balthasar Neumann, and was attracted by the French Roman churches. In 1962, he returned to Los Angeles, setting up his own firm. He has said on more than one occasion, "Personally, I hate chain link. I got involved with it because it was inevitably being used around my buildings. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em." A project in 1979 illustrates his use of chain-link fencing in the construction of the Cabrillo Marine Museum, a 20,000 square foot compound of buildings which he "laced together" with chain-link fencing. These "shadow structures" as Gehry calls them, bind together the parts of the museum. Santa Monica Place has one outside wall, nearly 300 feet long and six stories tall, hung with a curtain of chain link, and then a second layer over it in a different color spells out the name of the mall. For a time, Gehry's work used "unfinished" qualities as a part of the design. As Paul Goldberger, New York Times Architecture Critic described it, "Mr. Gehry's architecture is known for its reliance on harsh, unfinished materials and its juxtaposition of simple, almost primal, geometric forms...(His) work is vastly more intelligent and controlled than it sounds to the uninitiated; he is an architect of immense gifts who dances on the line separating architecture from art but who manages never to let himself fall." BAD EXAMPLE Frank Gehry

    • Avoid garish colour schemes i.e. green and yellow strips or an abundance of animations or graphics. Keep it neutral or complimentary and simple. Tip 4

    • If using a picture or pattern in the background, use the ‘transparency’ tool to de-saturate the image to around 30%. Make sure that any text on top can be read. Tip 5
    • BAD EXAMPLE GOOD EXAMPLE If using a picture or pattern in the background, use the ‘brightness and contrast’ tool to de-saturate the image to around 70% and 30%, respectively. Make sure that any text on top can be read. If using a picture or pattern in the background, use the ‘brightness and contrast’ tool to de-saturate the image to around 70% and 30%, respectively. Make sure that any text on top can be read.
    • Remember that the images saved must be the good quality (at least 800 x 600 pixels or 50Kb file size) and not stretched, but keep proportions fixed by using corners to enlarge/reduce Tip 6
    • BAD EXAMPLE GOOD EXAMPLE 4kb file size 40kb file size Stretched (in proportionate) To scale (proportionate)
    • Keep the fonts consistent throughout the presentation and keen them to a minimum i.e. One font for the heading and one for main text Consider the overall layout/composition of the slide Tip 7
    • BAD EXAMPLE GOOD EXAMPLE Pablo Picasso Several pieces in this new style were purchased by Gertrude (the art patron and writer) and her brother, Leo Stein. The other major artist promoted by the Steins during this period was Henri Matisse, who had made a sensation in an exhibition of 1905 for works of a most shocking new style, employing garish and dissonant colors. In 1905, Picasso went briefly to Holland, and on his return to Paris, his works took on a classical aura with large male and fernale figures seen frontally or in distinct profile, almost like early Greek art . One of the best of these of 1906 is in the Albright-Knox Gallery in Buffalo, NY, La Toilette. In 1905, Picasso went briefly to Holland, and on his return to Paris, his works took on a classical aura with large male and female figures seen frontally or in distinct profile, almost like early Greek art.

    • Delivery
    • When presenting, take your time and emphasise your main points. Start with an overview i.e. explain what theme/artists you will be discussing and then launch into the main content. Tip 8
    • End with a conclusion drawing together your observations and posing further questions and areas for personal development Tip 9
    • Evidence
    • It is very important that you print out your presentation and stick in your sketchbook or photo diary along with your notes. Otherwise, there is no record of your work and it cannot be assessed! Tip 10
