Monday- We will finish our study of the Renaissance. We will look at artist Albrecht Durer (German-Northern Renaissance) and talk about his prints. Most people will be finishing their radial design. Those that are already done will be making Gelli prints. They will use different items to create texture on the plate and create layers using acrylic plate.
Tuesday- We will begin class by playing Kahoot to review the Italian Renaissance and the Northern Renaissance. I will then introduce the next project, social issues collage. We will look at famous artist who use collage and different collage techniques. Students will brainstorm and then choose a social issue that they feel strongly about. They will create a sketch of a composition based on their social issue of the choice. They will choose a medium for the background and begin the background layer. Students will also be coming up one at a time to create a Gelli plate print that they can use in their collage as well.
Wednesday- We will start class with the Renaissance quiz. Students will then continue to work on the background for their collage. Once the background is complete, they will begin cutting out pieces for the middle and background. Students will also be coming up one at a time to create a Gelli plate print that they can use in their collage as well.
Thursday-We will begin our unit on Baroque Art. We will begin with the artist, Caravaggio. Students will then continue to work on their social issues collage. They will continue to layer using magazine images, their own drawings, and cut or torn paper.
Friday-We will continue our study of Baroque art by looking the artist, Bernini. Students will then complete their social issues collage. Students will also write an artist statement to go along with their work. We will hang them up and look at them as a class to discuss their messages before students turn them in for assessment.
VAHSCR.CR.1 Visualize and generate ideas for creating works of art.
- Generate ceramic concepts through the sequential process of ideation, innovation, development, and actualization.
- Investigate choice of themes, materials, and methods as they relate to personal, contemporary, and traditional ceramic artists/works.
VAHSCR.CR.2 Choose from a range of materials and methods of traditional and contemporary artistic practices to plan and create works of art.
- Document research, exploration, and problem solving to connect and express visual ideas.
- Individually and collaboratively generate multiple solutions to a single artistic problem and assess merits of each.
- Research materials and apply processes to recognize limitations and set goals regarding design, studio capabilities, and time.
VAHSCR.CR.3 Engage in an array of processes, media, techniques, and technology through experimentation, practice, and persistence.
- Utilize traditional and contemporary methods for constructing ceramic works (e.g. pinch, coil, slab, wheel thrown, extruded, modeled,
- Create ceramic works using various traditional and contemporary media.
- Apply surface techniques (e.g. mishima, sgraffito, burnishing, slip trailing, stamping, incising, applique).
- Apply a range of firing techniques (e.g. pit, barrel, raku, saggar, reduction, oxidation).
- Utilize technology (e.g. pottery wheel, extruder, three-dimensional modeling software, power tools, hand tools, kilns).
VAHSCR.CR.4 Incorporate formal and informal components to create works of art.
- Apply compositional principles to create representational and non-objective ceramic works.
- Produce a variety of ceramic works that explore the concepts of form and function to create intended effect and communicate
- Demonstrate the successful application of formal qualities (elements and principles) in the production of ceramic works.
Monday- I will introduce students to the next project, sculptural bowls. Students will brainstorm and sketch. They can use whichever building method (coil, pinch, slabs, ribbons, or combination) to build their bowls. Once their sketches are approved, they may begin building their bowl. We will also have a critique of their bas relief tiles.
Tuesday- Students will continue to build their bowl. It should be about the size of a cereal bowl.
Wednesday- Students will begin to add sculptural elements to their bowls. We will also have critique of their luminaries.
Thursday- Students will finish their sculptural bowls. Students will glaze their ribbon pots if they haven’t yet.
Friday- Students will begin painting their trompe l’oeils. They will use acrylic paint and use as much detail as possible to make their objects look 3D.
