  1. 1. SCGC Visual Arts Student Lounge Hands Across Curriculum
  2. 2. Visual Arts Lesson designed by teachers @ SCGC of Dallas ISD art forms that focus on the creation of works which are primarily visual in nature Paintings Photography Printmaking Street Art Scrap Art Fashion Photography art that is primarily visual in nature
  3. 3. <ul><ul><li>The principal of SCGC has approved the use of one of the classrooms for a visual arts lounge . </li></ul></ul>Introduction <ul><ul><li>She is trying to decide if the lounge should be for the faculty or for the students . </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Introduction <ul><ul><li>She is holding a competition to select the best student or faculty proposal . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Each proposal must address certain guidelines. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You and a group of your peers have decided to persuade her that students need a place of their own to hang out. You want the lounge. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Design your project using a budget of $10,000 . </li></ul>Your Challenge: The Tasks <ul><li>Choose a theme for your lounge. </li></ul><ul><li>Create guidelines and establish how the space is to be used. </li></ul><ul><li>Explain the positive reasons for having a student lounge. </li></ul>
  6. 6. This is the classroom in SCGC that has been selected. Location for New Lounge:
  7. 7. <ul><ul><li>All shelves and counters are to be taken apart & removed. </li></ul></ul>Think / Decide / Create <ul><ul><li>What will you do with the remaining walls & floor? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The storage area walls are to be taken down to provide a larger room. </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><ul><li>Let’s look at the each wall. Think about what colors you might use. </li></ul></ul>Think / Decide / Create <ul><ul><li>Think about what kind of theme you will use to tie the room together. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Think about what pieces you will need to add to the room to make it a student lounge. </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Here’s the space you will be working with. Think / Decide / Create
  10. 10. Wall #1 = 25.5’ Wall #2 = 8.75’ Remember all shelving & counters will be removed.
  11. 11. Wall #4 = 9.2’ Wall #3 = 5’ Height = 9.75’ Remember all shelving & counters will be removed.
  12. 12. Wall #5 = 19.25’ Height = 9.75’ Remember all shelving & counters will be removed.

  16. 16. Consider the condition of the floor.
  17. 17. What is a budget ? You will have $10,000 to convert a classroom into a visual arts student lounge. It is a means of keeping track of exactly how much money is coming in and exactly how much money is going out. What is your budget ? Think / Decide / Create
  18. 18. You have to decide how you need to spend this money. PAINT FLOORING FURNITURE ART LIGHTING ELECTRONICS This might include ... Room Preparation Think / Decide / Create
  19. 19. Step One: The Budget Let’s begin by estimating how many (wo)man hours will be needed to prepare the room: <ul><li>remove the walls of the storage unit, </li></ul><ul><li>remove all shelving units , and </li></ul><ul><li>Prepare walls/floors for …(?) </li></ul>Think / Decide / Create
  20. 20. Step One: The Budget Click below on the dollar icon. This will take you to your budget sheet. First, type your name. (You will update your budget periodically.) For now, estimate the number of hours needed to prepare your room. Think / Decide / Create
  21. 21. Step Two: Dealing With Restrictions Think / Decide / Create Before we can look at the cost involved in painting the walls and doing the floors. We must deal with regulations about the quality of paint used.
  22. 22. <ul><li>Your principal has certain health codes and Environmental Protection Agency standards to follow to ensure the safety and well being of students. </li></ul><ul><li>So, when choosing paint you must be aware of volatile organic compounds ( VOC ’s) that can be found in paint. </li></ul>Step Two: Dealing With Restrictions
  23. 23. VOC ’s consist of any carbon compounds that evaporate under high atmospheric vapor pressure . Question : Are the compounds that will be released into the room toxic or non-toxic? Solution : The paint that you pick must be non-toxic. Paint Atmosphere of Room Vapor Pressure Released into Air
  24. 24. VOC ’s contribute to viscosity levels …. Click to See Demonstration of Viscosity Viscosity deals with the paint’s thickness. How easily will your paint flow? You want paint that is thick enough to cover your walls but not so thick that it is difficult to paint. Chemical compounds make the difference. The wrong chemicals have toxins.
  25. 25. VOC ’s contribute to viscosity levels, reflectance of the paint color …. Reflectance The percentage of light that is reflected off a painted surface. Reflectance can make the difference between a hot and cool roof.
  26. 26. VOC ’s contribute to viscosity levels, reflectance of the paint color …. Reflectance For example, if you paint a wall in &quot;eggshell white,&quot; light will be diffused, scattered, and spread out. Light will not be concentrated in any one area. Your wall will maintain an even pleasant &quot;glow&quot; no matter where your lights are placed and no matter where you stand in the room. Eggshell Color Diffused Light
  27. 27. VOC ’s contribute to viscosity levels, reflectance of the paint color …. Reflectance Question : How much reflectance do you want in your room, and how many toxic or non-toxic chemical compounds are needed to obtain the effect you want? Solution : The paint that you pick must be non-toxic. If you use a high-gloss polyurethane paint, your surface will reflect far more light. You create harsher, brighter images.
  28. 28. VOC ’s contribute to … <ul><li>viscosity levels, </li></ul><ul><li>reflectance of the paint color, and </li></ul><ul><li>absorption of paint through surface painted. </li></ul>
  29. 29. As you can see, different compounds may cause the paint to become toxic . Paints that do not contain VOC ’s are considered to be nontoxic . Paints that contain VOC ’s are toxic. They contain carcinogen s .
  30. 30. Carcinogen s can contribute to human illnesses. Many carcinogens are found in paint, paint thinners, spray paint, and other paint products. However, a certain amount of VOC ’s are permitted in paint because the things we expect paint to do currently depend upon them.
  31. 31. In order to help you make the right paint selection, you will be given three leading chemicals commonly used in paint products to research. All of these chemicals are toxic. One of them is a carcinogen. Remember, your proposal cannot include paint that is highly toxic nor any substance that is carcinogenic.
  32. 32. . To help you investigate these compounds. Click on and complete the “ Paint Data Sheet .” The information you need is located within each of the blue links below. The three paint compounds you are investigating are: <ul><li>m- xylene </li></ul><ul><li>lead </li></ul><ul><li>Ethyl Acetate </li></ul>Orlando, we need PDF files for these links.
  33. 33. Think / Decide / Create Now that you have researched these chemicals, use the link below to determine if the Mythic Paint (recommended by the building) contains any of these compounds.  M -Xylene  Lead  Ethyl Acetate Click on one of the paint cans.
  34. 34. Is Mythic Paint toxic ? What are your conclusions? Does Mythic Paint contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) ?  M -Xylene YES NO YES NO  Lead  Ethyl Acetate Answer the questions below about Mythic Paint.
  35. 35. Guidelines for Purchasing Nontoxic paint may be more expensive than toxic paint. However, your proposal cannot include toxic paint. Think / Decide / Create Mythic Paint is estimated to cost $50.00 a gallon. Feel free to explore other brands of paint if you feel you can find a better price for nontoxic paint. Once you determine the brand of paint you want (by the gallon or can), you are ready to estimate how much paint you need to buy.

  37. 37. Guidelines for Purchasing What else do you need to purchase in order to paint the student lounge? Think / Decide / Create Brushes? Rollers? Tape? Tarp? Paint Thinner? Bucket? Click the sites below for ideas and cost. Then add these items to your budget.
  38. 38. Did you update your budget? If “ Yes ,” continue. If “ No ,” please do so now.
  39. 39. What have you done thus far? Stop & Consider <ul><li>Met Environmental Protection Agency’s Paint Standards </li></ul><ul><li>Started a budget sheet to estimate cost of …. </li></ul><ul><li>(wo)man hours needed to prepare the room. </li></ul><ul><li>estimated quantity of paint to purchase (walls/floors). </li></ul><ul><li>additional paint supplies for project. </li></ul>
  40. 40. Before going any further, let’s stop and consider the theme that will establish your lounge’s personality. Stop & Consider What image do you want to convey? What &quot;personality&quot; do you want to establish? What is the overall purpose of the lounge?
  41. 41. THEMATIC FOCUS <ul><li>First, let’s define a few terms so as to better understand your task. </li></ul><ul><li>THEME (What is the main idea or overall point you are trying to convey ?) </li></ul>Rustic Decorating Theme Patriotic Decorating Theme Casino Decorating Theme
  42. 42. <ul><li>COLOR (How does color define the mood you are trying to establish? How will you use color to support your theme? ) </li></ul>THEMATIC FOCUS
  43. 43. <ul><li>PERSPECTIVE (the way objects appear based on their spatial attributes AND the position of the eye relative to the objects) </li></ul>THEMATIC FOCUS
  44. 44. THEMATIC FOCUS <ul><li>DECOR (Will the overall arrangement and furnishings of my lounge support my theme?) </li></ul>BEFORE: No Focus Unbalanced Spacing Overpowering Window Treatment Fireplace Focal point Light Window Treatment Small Rocker Adds Balance AFTER:
  45. 45. THEMATIC FOCUS <ul><li>DECOR (Does the overall arrangement and furnishings of this room support my theme?) </li></ul>AFTER: BEFORE: Crowded Unbalanced Spacing Feels Small Sparsely Decorated Honey Cabinets “Pop” White Counters “Pop” Floral Décor Adds Color Clutter Cleared Away
  46. 46. THEMATIC FOCUS There are 4 important thematic considerations: <ul><li>Theme </li></ul><ul><li>Color </li></ul><ul><li>Perspective </li></ul><ul><li>Decor </li></ul>Decorating Theme Mood Visual Effect Arrangement
  47. 47. THEMATIC FOCUS Let’s take the components of a Thematic Focus and build a description about the lounge you are designing. This description will give you an opportunity to develop and refine your theme , color choices, room perspective , & décor .
  48. 48. <ul><li>Description: Imagine reading a description about how a lounge for Barbie might be described. </li></ul>For example, We suspect that there may be use of vocabulary like “ pink ,” “ frilly ,” and “ soft .” We might read descriptions about tables and chairs set for tea with a soft green vase filled with pink flowers.
  49. 49. <ul><li>Description: How would a lounge with a Dallas Cowboys’ theme be described? </li></ul>For example, Would there be lots of color descriptions using blue, grey / silver, and white? Would we read about helmets, t-shirts, footballs, team members, and a picture of Jerry Jones? Might there be a football shaped couch?
  50. 50. The next few slides are to help you brainstorm your artistic development of your proposed student lounge. THEMATIC FOCUS
  51. 51. Click below for a Word document that will help you draft your thoughts as you answer the questions on the following pages. THEMATIC FOCUS Click here.
  52. 52. THEMATIC FOCUS While you are formulating your ideas, use imagery . Think about the images you want to create in the lounge.
  53. 53. When brainstorming, stay within the floor space. THEMATIC FOCUS
  54. 54. <ul><li>Theme </li></ul>Will someone entering your lounge immediately pick up on the theme? Describe this first impression and what s/he will see. How have you emphasized it? THEMATIC FOCUS Imagine that the principal is standing in the doorway. What will she see that ties the room together? What questions are you asking yourself as you try to narrow a theme for your lounge? Are you pulled in a number of directions or know exactly what you want? Record your reflections before moving on.
  55. 55. <ul><li>Color </li></ul>What mood do you want to establish? Describe the colors you have chosen and why. Explain how you plan to use color throughout your room and why. THEMATIC FOCUS Could someone react to the color in a way you had not thought about? What is the bottom-line or deciding factor in settling on the color(s) you want to use? Record your reflections before moving on. Click here to read an article about the psychology of color.
  56. 56. <ul><li>Perspective </li></ul>What interest might you use based on perspective? What perspective would invite others to not only enter the lounge but also to explore it completely? THEMATIC FOCUS What perspective is seen from different angles: the front door, a corner chair, the media center, etc.? Will you have elements of surprise built into your perspective? What visual treat might delight a visitor? Record your reflections before moving on.
  57. 57. <ul><li>Decor </li></ul>How will you use the entire space? Describe how and where you will place pictures, flowers, furniture, media, etc. and why. THEMATIC FOCUS Talk about how you have used a sense of space. Did you leave a lot of blank space? Did you focus on a particular area? Etc. What are some of the challenges you faced with space? How did you come to terms with problems? Were there turning points where you decided to go in a particular direction? Record your reflections before moving on.
  58. 58. You have just finished brainstorming … THEMATIC FOCUS <ul><li>4 important thematic topics to help you design your room and </li></ul><ul><li>images of what your lounge might look like. </li></ul>

  60. 60. Before you go any further, draw each area of your lounge, using color. Sketch each area of the room thinking about perspective and decor. THEMATIC FOCUS
  61. 61. You have now drafted your ideal student lounge based on a thematic focus. THEMATIC FOCUS The next few screens will help you estimate cost for flooring, furniture, electronics, and art. The question is, can you afford it? Let’s go back to your estimated budget.
  62. 62. Think / Decide / Create What will you be doing with your floors? <ul><li>If you are painting them, use the square footage determined previously and estimate the cost (unless this was already factored in with the paint). </li></ul><ul><li>If you are using carpeting or another surface, visit a link below, estimate the cost, and include the information on your budget sheet. </li></ul>
  63. 63. Did you add the floor’s cost details to your budget sheet? If “ Yes ,” continue. If “ No ,” please do so now.
  64. 64. For Example: Product dimensions Width: 81 1/8&quot; Depth: 36 5/8&quot; Height: 31 1/2&quot; Guidelines for Purchasing Think / Decide / Create When selecting furniture, media, art, etc. Don’t forget to pay attention to size. Everything must fit. width height
