SCHOOL CLOSURE LESSONS / INFORMATION

SCULPTURE I

Our sculpture classes rely heavily on a studio environment where you are provided with demonstrations, materials and the tools you need to create. Unfortunately it can be hard to create art lessons/projects without knowing what materials might be readily available to each student. I will provide some resources to look at, some suggested projects, but I also encourage you to draw, paint, carve, practice photography, or create sculptures out of materials you may have laying around.  Get creative! 
 
WHAT I CANNOT GRADE:

The project we were just about to finish up (Paper Mache Animal Head Mount)


WHAT I CAN GRADE:

Late work, any project turned in before Animal Head Mount.


For late work to be graded send

the following all in 1 email:
* Email a picture of your project NEXT to the grading rubric -found on website by project (then I know it is authentically your work). 
* Email picture of filled out grading rubric
* Email artist statement (Sculpture 1 this is on the rubric)

 

CLOSURE PROJECT SUGGESTIONS:

The following project ideas are suggestions of things you can make, improve skills and knowledge on.  Please know that I will NOT be grading any of the following suggested projects.   What I would love is to see pictures of the projects you make via email and I can give you feedback and it would make me happy to see your artwork!  Since every student has different access to materials please choose from the activities on what would work best for you.

Paper Mache
I recommend creating another paper mache piece.  I had fun making a Paper Mache Mammoth, think about if you want to make another animal or something else.  Think about whether it should hang on a wall or sit on a pedestal.
Materials needed :  
*Paper Mache (Mix water with Elmer’s glue (50/50)
*Any type of paper…newspaper, printer paper, brown packaging paper  etc. 
*Tape preferred masking tape, but any tape works to hold you're armature in place.
*Cardboard (optional)

 Clay Option
I am enjoying watching the British TV series “The Great Pottery Throw Down” the contestants sometimes say weird things, but for the most part it gives a good base understanding of ceramics and it is fun to see the failures and successes of different ceramic artists!  (I found episodes on YouTube)
Suggestion:  Watch 1-2 episodes per week.  Answer the following questions in a notebook or sketchbook :
 
What did you learn?   What did you relate to?  What looked interesting to try?
Then draw your version of one of the “Assignments” from the show.  For example Season 1 Episode 1 they make Nesting Bowls.  Draw what you would want your nesting bowl set to look like.

ART HISTORY

Obviously, our class will look a bit different than while we were meeting in class.  I will use this space to provide resources, lessons, links, and suggestions for projects you can work on at home.  I also encourage you to use this time to branch out on your own and explore various art pieces throughout history that resonate with you.

 

WHAT I CANNOT GRADE:

The Masterpiece Art Project (Yes, I am very sad and frustrated about this).  In the event we come back to school, this project will be back on!


WHAT I CAN GRADE:

Late work, any assignment/ project turned in before we were all sent home.

CLOSURE SUGGESTIONS:

The following lessons/resources are suggestions of things you can do to expand your knowledge in art history.  Please know that I will NOT be grading any of the following suggested projects.  Since every student has different access to materials please choose from the activities on what would work best for you.

Virtual Museum Tours

Google Arts and Culture Museum Tours and Activities

https://artsandculture.google.com/

This resource has a plethora of materials for you to explore on your own!  There are activities that involve VR with your phone, "zoomed in" guided tours of famous artwork, and a number of museums that have given access to their amazing resources.
