During thisproject we willbe looking at 4types of art.We will beusing this art toproduce aportrait.
Today we are learning;• To understand Pointillism and how to make Pointillist art.• To work in the style of another artist.
PointillismSome artists have found different ways ofpainting. In the 19th Century, artists such asAndre Derain and Georges Seurat used atechnique called the ‘Pointillist’ technique.Instead of using brushstrokes to paint, they putsmall dots of colour on the paper.
Originally oil paint was used for pointillist paintings as it was thick and it didn’t run. What could we use to create this effect?
• When we use this technique, we are mixing colours -- not by blending them together -- but by placing two colours side by side.• Its called the optical mixing of colours.• For example, we may place clusters of red dots and surround them with yellow dots. Up close we will see red and yellow, but from a distance, we will see orange.
On your sheet complete the text and use thepointillist technique to colour Elvis Priestleyshead.
Pop ArtShort for Popular Art, the Pop Art movement usedcommon everyday objects, such as billboards, comicstrips, magazine advertisements, famous faces andsupermarket products.Because it was influenced by advertising and comicstrips it used bright bold and flat colours. It also usedthick black lines.
from advertising isthe dots.The cheapernewspapers andmagazines would blowphotos up so much itwould become dotty.Pop artists used thisidea and added it intotheir art.
Fauvism Fauvism used bright, bold, non-natural colours. They didn’t use much detail in their Art.
Their aim was to express emotion through colour choice. Blending similar colours.
We will be using oil pastels to create this style. Bright, bold, un-natural colours. Blending similar colours. No white gaps
Tips when using oil pastels;• Press on until all the white of the paper is covered.• Blend the oil pastels by overlapping similar colours. (remember to put the lightest colour on first)• Go back over until blended.
Impressionism• Impressionism was a 19th-century art movement.• It includes visible brush strokes. Does anyone recognise this artist?
• How could we recreate this technique?• What materials could we use?• What tools could we use?
