VAHSVAAR.1 Makes written and oral critiques of own works of art.
Monday- I will introduce students to art of the Baroque period. We will begin with paintings by Caravaggio. Students will then continue to work on their multi-media project. Over the next couple of days, students will not only draw leaves and flowers using various materials on different papers but they will also take turns creating a print using gelli printing.
Tuesday- We will continue to talk about Baroque art by looking at sculptures by Bernini. Students will then continue to work on their multi-media project. Over the next couple of days, students will not only draw leaves and flowers using various materials on different papers but they will also take turns creating a print using gelli printing.
Wednesday-We will continue our discussion of Baroque art by looking at paintings by Rembrandt. Students will then work to complete their multi-media project. Students should have 8-10 drawings and prints that they will use to make a larger composition. Students will then complete a self-assessment and turn it in to be graded.
Thursday–We will begin to look at Impressionism-how it began and its key characteristics. Students will then work on a post assessment for the Davis Drawing Assessment (in lieu of a SLO test). Students will draw their room from their memory. They should focus on showing depth on their picture plane.
Friday-We will continue to look at Impressionism by focusing on Manet. Students will then finish their Davis Drawing Assessment. We will also be going to the library for students to research and gather images to use for their final project which will involve making a composition of an animal of their choice.
