Term 1 Silhouette Pictures

Term 1: Silhouette Pictures

This term we are learning to create silhouette pictures using paint. A silhouette is a shadow.
We will be using the process of tonal modeling and blending of colours to create a sunset. Then we will draw in our silhouette pictures over the top of our sunsets and paint over our silhouette pictures using black paint. 
Painting silhouettes requires you to think and to take your time. If you rush through your painting of your silhouette, then your image may not stand out. It is about using the finest paint brushes, minimal paint and having control with your brush strokes. This is fine art, the end product is worth it. 

Learning Intention

I am learning to create silhouette picture.


Success Criteria

* I can plan my art work
* I can use the painting technique: tonal modeling and colour blending to create a sunset
* I can finely draw a picture e.g. animal that has striking features - elephant, camel, birds.
* I can delicately paint over my silhouette image, taking my time so that it stands out


Here are some examples of Silhouette pictures

    

     


My Silhouette Painting Reflection
As critical learners and thinkers in Room 5, it is important for us to reflect on our artwork. Being able to reflect enables us to think about what went well, what didn't and what you could do better next time. 
Here is the Art Reflection Link: 

Please make yourself a copy and then answer the questions. Once you have finished please get your reflection checked by Miss Paton or Miss Nichol and then you can copy and paste it onto your blog. We are looking for well thought out reflections not one word answers. 


Fun with Photo's using the Class Computers:

Create a Photo using effects - on Photo Booth and upload it onto your blog. I am looking at contrast of colours, e.g. red and green, orange and blue, purple and yellow. I really like this special effect.


Andy Warhol themed artworks


During this term you will have the opportunity to create your own Andy Warhol themed portraits. To do this we will be using a Photo Booth to take a black and white photograph of your face. We will print it out. From there you will trace over it using a pencil. Then your traced picture will be photocopied. You will then use a fine black pen to go over your photocopied pencil lines. Once this is done, your black outlined portrait will be photocopied 5 - 6 times. The fun bit will then begin, by you using a cotton bud to dab your areas using dye. You will dab one area at a time e.g. skin, hair, eyes, clothing etc. Once an area is dry you will then use a contrasting colour to work on another area. 

Learning intention
I am learning to create my very own Andy Warhol themed art work based on the Marilyn Monroe Tabouret.

Success Criteria
I can trace over my face accurately
I can include the finer details e.g. hair line, nose, pupils, etc
I can dye within the lines
I can dab my cotton bud within the areas to avoid smudges
I can use contrasting colours
I can create four different designs
I can control my dyed cotton bud so that it doesn't spill / run into other colours.

Remember to make a copy of the Reflection and when you have completed it, ask a friend to proof read and check it for you. Then see Miss Paton for a conference to do the final checking of your reflection.  I can't wait to see your amazing portraits and art critical reflections.

Critiquing somebody else's artwork

It is always fun being an art critic. It makes you think why someone's artwork is extra special and makes you think about your own art work and presentation. 
Have a go at answering the questions on the Critique document below. Make a copy of the document and answer the questions. Ask a friend to read over your critique and then get Miss Paton to read over your work. Once this is done you can copy and paste it onto your blog. You may wish to share your critique with the artist who you has produced the art work. It's always nice to get feedback.
