Transcript of Untitled Prezi

Now that we have decided what a portrait is, we can begin to look at measuring and drawing one of your own.

Follow the instructions given next VERY CAREFULLY. Help others in your group if you have managed to finish yours.

We are going to fold a piece of paper to help us make a simple portrait. Every person's face is different, but these will give us guidelines to follow for now.


Measuring portraits
Each of you will take turns drawing the person across from you in your group.
The most important thing to consider is where each feature of the face is drawn.
Look carefully at how far apart the person's eyes are, how wide the mouth is etc.
We will learn how to measure this later. For now we are just sketching.
Do not draw the outside of the face, or the shape of the head. Only the eyes, nose and mouth are needed today.
Today's Task
All of the portraits we have seen so far have been different. They were made using different materials and different styles.

So what is it that lets us know that the art we are looking at is a portrait?
What is a portrait?
Portraiture styles

Portrait: A likeness of a person, especially one showing the face, that is created by a painter or photographer, for example.
How did you do?
Look carefully at your drawing and decide what it needs to make it better.

Are the sizes of the features correct? are they in the right place?

Write what you could have done to improve this drawing on the back of the page.

Today's Task
Step 1:

Fold your paper in half
Step 2:

Fold your paper in half
(again)
Step 3:

Fold the bottom of your
paper in half (again)
Can you see how this can help us to place the features on the face?

If we keep the eyes in the middle and use the second line for the nose, it gives us a good start.

I've added in the pink line to show that the mouth is about halfway between the nose and the chin.
Just in case you don't believe me, here are a few more examples...
Today's task
Today we will draw yourself using the mirror, but will this time use the template to help you place the features.

Do not draw the outside of the head, just the features. You will not have time for everything, concentrate on the eyes, nose and mouth.

Tip: Sketch
all
the features before you add detail
How did you do?
Look carefully at your drawing and decide what it needs to make it better.

Are the sizes of the features correct? are they in the right place?

Write what you could have done to improve this drawing on the back of the page.

Well?
Your sketchbook cover needs -
Your name
My name (Miss Campbell)
Your class
Portraiture
Before we start our next project properly we will make a sketchbook for all your drawings.

We'll make it with different types of paper and bind it together so that we can add more later (if we need to)

As many of your drawings as possible will be done in here to keep everything together.

Oh, by the way. Your next project is...
Your sketchbook - you will need
7 pieces of paper (a mix of colours)
2 pieces of wool
Coloured pencils (or pens)
Patience, a bit of imagination and a PMA (that's positive mental attitude...)

Some of the paper will be different sizes. The wool might be hard to thread through...all these things will be tricky, but you'll manage.

Help each other in your groups if you need to.
Your sketchbook cover
This is your sketchbook, and your chance to show your individuality. You can draw shapes, patterns, faces, objects. Use lots of colour if you like. Don't use grafitti.
Recap of last lesson
Last time we learned a bit about measuring, and how to draw features in the correct place.

How do we know where to put the eyes?
What about the nose?
Mouth?

Your next drawing should be a made using line only. It might look like this...
Remember this?
Something different today
Today we'll try drawing from a photograph.

I know how much you will all miss drawing each other (because you love it so much...)

This should give you more time to concentrate on your drawing, and a chance to look carefully at where each feature is.
Tip...
If we fold our paper and also fold our photograph, we will make a grid to follow.

To make it trickier you can just fold your paper.

If you are quite confident, try not folding either.
Today's task
Draw the portrait from the photograph to the same scale.

Use the folding techniques to make a grid (if you wish)

Use only line (no shading) today.

We will look at ways to measure the face to make a drawing, and will talk about the perfect facial proportions.


What we will do today
you need...
A pencil. A piece of paper. A template. A mirror. A rubber for your group.
collect these now please!
Now look in your mirror and we'll discuss some more guidelines.
Last time we looked at ways of folding paper to help with measurements.

Today we will recap that information - there was a lot to remember!

Then I will introduce a template as another option to help you with your measurements.

If you are confident, carry on with the drawing we started last time.
recap - last lesson
S2 Self Study Project
You have been given the task to research the work of a Portrait artist, and to present what you find as a booklet of some kind.

How it looks is up to you. This is your chance to show the art department how amazing you are!

This project has been given to all the S2 pupils in the department.

Make sure yours stands out!
There are lots of portrait artists to look at. Make sure you choose someone who interests you!

You will need to write a biography and a description of the portrait painting of your choice.
Vincent van Gogh
Chuck Close
Frida Kahlo
Andy Warhol
This is not just an essay, this is a PRESENTATION.

You should make sure your work looks good, is interesting to read and is factually accurate.

Let's revisit the font covers of sketchbooks for some ideas.

Next Step
Big eyes!
Now that you have had some time to draw features, it is time to move on to using different materials.

We are going to draw much larger versions of eyes, noses and mouths.

We will use either graphite, oil pastel or chalk pastel.


You MUST make sure your drawing is correct before we add detail.
These will be our reference
So far, we have all managed to get to here
This will be our next step
We will start to build up dark tones
Can you see the direction of the marks?
We start to see form appear
Later we can start to add white
We will get to this point today
Let's start today by looking at everyone's work together.

Be honest, look at your work alongside the rest of the class'. Can you see areas that should be changed?

Remember, charcoal is a material that CANNOT be erased.
You must get into the habit of editing your work as you go.

Are your circles looking circular? Is the upper lid in the correct place? Does the lower lid sit in the best possible position?

We will decide on a few examples that are looking good.


How is your work looking?

Today we will be continuing your charcoal and chalk eye drawings.

Some of you are further on than others, so each of you will be working on a slightly different task today.

Listen carefully to instructions to make sure you know what you are doing today.
There are a few items you will need today.

Each of you should collect -

1 piece of graphite
1 piece of charcoal
1 piece of chalk
Your work (if you do not have it yet)

Please do this carefully and calmly s2
Remember to use your guidelines
Video!

Learning Intention

Today you will follow directions to draw a measured shape.
We'll work together today.

Each person will create the same image following the same instructions.

You will need -
One piece of a3 brown paper
One pencil
Collect these now please.
Pay close attention!

The first thing you will do is draw a large circle on the page.

Not an oval, not a square. Make it as circular as possible.
Watch me first then copy what I do.
