Riches e 14406485-ede202_assesment2

  1. 1. Introduction. Vincent Van Gogh. Vincent Van Gogh, was a self taught artist. Vincent William Van Gogh, was born in Holland in March 30th 1853. Vincent Van Gogh, died in 1890. The photo ‘’Sunflowers’’ (Cfiles, 2014). The photo, ‘’self portrait’’ (Van Gogh Gallery, 2002-2013). 1
  2. 2. Introduction. Elements of Art. Btsanglais, (2011, August 25). How to look at art – The elements part1 [Video File]. Retrieved from After viewing this short video, we are going to look at some of Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings and see if we can find elements of art in them. 2
  3. 3. Introduction. The photo, ‘’starry night’’ (Van Gogh Gallery, 2002-2013). Value – What objects appear light? What objects appear dark? Why do they appear light or dark? (light and dark paint colours.) Colour – What are the colours that are used the most? Lines- What images in the painting have lines in them? (the houses, the sky, the hills, the stars.) Texture - How would you describe the lines? (thick 3 thin.) or
  4. 4. Introduction. The photo ‘’Sunflowers’’ (Cfiles, 2014). Colours – Do you see light and dark of the same colours? What colours have been used the most in this drawing? Shapes – What shapes can you see in this painting? Lines – Where can you see Vincent Van Gogh has used line in his drawing? 4
  5. 5. Now we are going to create our own still life portrait just live Vincent Van Gogh’s sunflowers. As we create we will be using the elements of art: •Lines. •Shapes. Can you think of any other elements you may use? 5
  6. 6. Set-up – Still life Drawing. The photo ‘’Sunflowers’’ (Cfiles, 2014). Before we can organise any materials we need to talk about what we see. After we have had a talk and done some exploring you will need: •Black artline pen – from the shelf. •A4 white card paper. – from the shelf. 6
  7. 7. Exploring and Creating – Still life Drawing. What you are looking at now – is sunflowers. They began as seeds in the earth and after many days of water and sunshine, the seeds sprouted. The seeds grew in to stems. Beautiful yellow sunflowers appeared at the end of the stems. Soon after this, the sunflowers were picked and sold to florists. Which is how they got here. I bought them from the florist shop this morning. 7
  8. 8. Exploring & Creating – Still life Drawing. We are going explore what we see: •What does the stem of the sunflower feel like? •Can you feel the rough hairs that run up the stem? •What do the petals feel like? •Does any part of the sunflower smell? –the petals, the stem. The photo ‘’Sunflowers’’ (Cfiles, 2014). 8
  9. 9. Exploring & Creating – Still life Drawing. Magnifying glass! The photo ‘’magnifying glass’’ (Corsame, 2011). What do the petals look like through the magnifying glass? Look at the shape of a petal? What does it look like? What colours can you see in the petals through the magnifying glass? What colour is the centre of the sunflower through the magnifying glass? 9
  10. 10. Exploring and Creating – Still life Drawing. DRAWING. Now it is time to draw. You need: The photo ‘’black artline pen’’ (Officeworks, 2008-2013). Black artline pen. A4 white card paper. The photo ‘’A4 white card’’ (Crafty crocodiles, 2013). 10
  11. 11. Introduction. Mixing Colours. When we create a piece of art and use lots of colours, when the colours touch, you may see a new colour that you did not use. ESL and Popular Culture. (2013, June 20). Simple Color Mixing For Children [Video file]. Retrieved from The photo, ‘’starry night’’ (Van Gogh Gallery, 2002-2013). 11
  12. 12. Studio Set-up – Adding colour. Now it is time to go and choose, chalk pastels. To add colour to your drawing. The photo ‘’chalk pastels’’ (Learning beyond the book, 2011). You need a container of chalk pastels to share between two and one tray between two – which you can use to shake your paper in to, to remove excess chalk. Remember you want to choose colours to make your portrait look just the sunflowers you see on the table. 12
  13. 13. Exploring & Creating – Adding colour. Look at the beautiful chalk pastels lying side by side in their tray. One colour leads to the next colour. Red leads to orange, orange leads to yellow…. The colours are like a rainbow, waiting in the tray. (Pelo, 2007, p.52). Before we add colour straight on to our still life portraits, lets experiment with the chalk pastels on blank paper first. • How does colour move on the paper? •Notice how the colours looks on the paper as you use the pastels. Is it smooth? Bumpy? Rough? Silky? Can you see the lines of the paper inside the colour? 13 The photo ‘’Sunflowers’’ (Cfiles, 2014).
  14. 14. Exploring & Creating – Adding colour. • What happens if you use the flat end of the pastel? •Try using the skinny edge of the pastel. What kind of line does this make? •What kind of line can you make with the long side of the pastel? •You might experiment with holding two pastels at one time. What sorts of lines does that make? •What happens when you put one colour over another? •Look where two colours are next to each other. What happens if you rub them together, so the lines get blurry where they meet? •Try blending the pastels with your fingers. What does that feel like on your fingertips? Now we are ready to add colour to our still life portraits. 14
  15. 15. Cleaning up. Step 1. Wipe your hands with paper towels and place all pens and chalk pastels back on to the shelf. The photo ‘’paper hand towels’’ (Tork, 2010). Step 2. Pack away the chalk pastels. The Teacher will come around to collect the trays to clean, then wet the blue table cloths, wipe down your work surface. Step 3. Wash your hands. The photo ‘’ Hand washing helps reduce the risk of healthcare associated infections’’ (World Ngayon, 2014). 15
  16. 16. Document & Display – Still life drawing & Adding colour. The photo ‘’Creativity and life’’ (Quotes about life, death and everything in between, 2003-2014). The photo ‘’frame’’ (Even thinking process, 2012). To display our art work, you are encouraged to decorate a picture frame for your art piece to be mounted in to and then display in the classroom. You can decorate the frame through: Painting and/or Collage. You are encouraged to photograph your work a long the way. The photo ‘’Sony DSC W90’’ (East Coast Photo, 2014). Take as many photos of your work as you like. 16 The camera is available for use at all times.
  17. 17. Extension and follow-up to still life portrait & adding colour: Sunflower sculpture. As follows! 17
  18. 18. Vincent Van Gogh never made any 3D art. But if he did, it make look something like this……. Ever looked at your favorite painting and wished you could wander inside, to look at it close up? The photo ‘’Rob and nick carter, sunflower.’’ (Cfile, 2014). When you can look at paintings from all sides, this is called 3 dimensional. 3D. Vance Mortimer. (2012, June 19). Starry Night in 3D [Video file] Retrieved from If Starry Night painting was in 3D. 18
  19. 19. Lastly, to experience Vincent Van Gogh. We are going to create a 3D Sunflower sculpture. In doing this, we are using the element of art: •Form. •Space. Can you think of any other elements of art, this may use? 19
  20. 20. Sunflower Sculpture – Studio Setup. What your desk needs, before we begin. Small container of water. The photo ‘’5L plastic horse water bucket’’ (Made in China, 2011). Placemat. The photo ‘’bamboo placemat’’ (okokchina, 1999-2011). Cloth. The photo ‘’Prowipe (Chux)’’ (Rapid Clean, 2008). 20
  21. 21. Exploring and Creating – Sunflower sculpture. The photo ‘’clay’’ (Understanding and definitions, 2013). The clay is to stiff for us to work with. We’ve got to use muscles in order to make the clay soft enough to create our sculptures!!! • Use your sponge to wet the clay. Hold the sponge above the clay and five it a soft squeeze, so that drips fall from the sponge on to your clay. •To mix water in to clay, squeeze the clay… rub it… push it…. Knead it… Roll it. Have fun!!! •Every so often add water to your clay and keep mixing and 21 kneading.
  22. 22. Exploring and Creating – Sunflower sculpture. Once the clay is soft: •Let’s discover the shape of the clay. Try folding the clay.. Bending it… stretching it… flattening it… rolling it…. •When you make a shape with the clay, does it keep that shape? •Let’s see what we can do with really wet clay and then really dry clay. Which is better? The Photo. ‘’D.Kneading’’ (A natural state, 2008). The photo ‘’kneading clay’’ (Gorgeous Puddings Pondering, 2010). 22
  23. 23. Exploring and Creating – Sunflower sculpture. Our plan is to use the clay to create the sunflower display we see in the centre of the table. To do this: •Experiment how to create the clay like the stem and petals of the flowers. •How many ways can you use clay to sculpt the flowers? Remember! This is your sculpture, how it looks is completely up to you….. 23
  24. 24. Clean up – Sunflower sculptures. 1. Put your sponges in the baskets provided. 2. Place unused clay in to the plastic bag, that the Teacher will bring around. 3. Scrape off all excess clay from your placemat in to the buckets of water. 4. Rinse hands in the bucket of water, then go to the bathroom to get the rest of the clay off. The photo ‘’Prowipe (Chux)’’ (Rapid Clean, 2008). The photo ‘’5L plastic horse water bucket’’ (Made in China, 2011). The photo ‘’bamboo placemat’’ (okokchina, 1999-2011). 24
  25. 25. Documentation & Display – Sunflower Sculptures. As you work the Teacher will come around and take photos of you and your continuous sculptures. The photo ‘’Sony DSC W90’’ (East Coast Photo, 2014). You can not take your own photos as your hands will be covered in clay, which will damage the digital camera!!! 25
  26. 26. Extension & Follow up – Sunflower Sculpture. Any time you would like to use the clay during art time – it is kept on the art trolley all you need to do it ask. You can refer to the photo display which will be hung in the art corner, to show you how to set-up, clean-up and explore the clay. The photo ‘’clay’’ (Understanding and definitions, 2013). 26
  27. 27. Conclusion. From completing these activities, you have been your own artist just like Vincent Van Gogh. You have worked with the elements of art to create beautiful pieces of your own. Next time you are doing art, remember the elements of art are in every piece you create. The photo, ‘’self portrait’’ (Van Gogh Gallery, 2002-2013). 27
