Transcript of Jump start art lesson

Objective: Review and understand the ART ELEMENTS and PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN through mini art lessons and discussions.
If you've ever participated in an art class you should be familiar with the ELEMENTS OF ART AND PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN

Mini art lessons
are small lessons
that are done in
one class period.

Their are many words
used to describe lines.
Differentiate between contour lines and outlines
Perceive and discuss how lines can be expressive
Create a variety of line drawings including a line contour, blind contour, outline, continuous line contour and cross contour
It can define a space, create an outline or pattern, imply movement or texture and allude to mass or volume. Lines are absolutely essential in creating art.
"Art, like morality, consists
in drawing the line
- G.K. Chesterton
Lines marking the outer contours or boundaries of an object or figure.
Like a shadow, they
look flat and don't
provide much
information about the

Contour lines
define the outer edges of forms and surfaces within a form, such as wrinkles and folds. These line drawings suggest depth in addition to height and width. They are like outline drawings with all the "extra information".
Michael Craig-Martin, a contemporary conceptual artist and painter, emphasizes contour lines
in his art.
Artist train their eyes and hands to work together
by making blind contour drawings and continuous contour line drawings.

Blind contour drawing trains the eye and hand to work as a team, and it helps students to see all of the details of the object.
Blind contour drawing may not produce a good drawing; however it helps artist to draw more realistically, rather than relying on their memorized drawing symbols.
An artist makes a blind contour line drawing by fixing his or her eyes on the outline of the model or object, then tracks the edge of the object with his or her eyes, while simultaneously drawing the contour very slowly, in a steady, continuous line without lifting the pencil or looking at the paper.
Cross contour drawing deals with illustrating the way an object sits in space using lines. For example, if you were to draw a sphere, there would be circular marks inside the sphere that will illustrate the way the sphere is round.
While contour lines describe edges, cross-contours describe form and volume. These lines can follow planes of form, moving around and across objects as well as through them.
Think of a topographical map--the lines move across the terrain. Cross-contour lines do the same thing.
Look at how Rembrandt used cross contour lines in one of his elephant drawings.
Objective: Define the ART ELEMENTS
Step 1:
Step 2:
Step 3:
Van Gogh also used
Cross- Contour lines
in his paintings.
Nicholas Di Genova
Draw cross-contour lines over the objects
on the worksheet. If you finish before class ends trace an outline of your hand on the back of the worksheet and draw cross-contour lines over it
to elude volume.
Shape and Form
Learn about the art Elements Shape and Form.
Differentiate between geometric and organic shape and forms.
Learn about open and closed shape and forms.
Learn about Objective and Non Objective Shapes and Forms.
Organic shapes
are associated
with things
from the natural
world, like
plants and
Shapes and Forms can be
Free Form Shapes
geometric shape
or form is a geometric figure that can be described with mathematics and that is used in geometry.
Open Shapes
and Forms
Closed Shapes
and Forms
Implied Space
There are many ways to create an illusion of space (implied space) in two-dimensional art. This includes overlapping objects, size comparison and position of objects, and color (cool colors tend to recede, while warm colors tend to move toward the viewer.
Color, detail and Intensity
Linear Perspective
Space can refer to :
Positive and Negative Space
Actual Space
Implide Space
Objective: Learn about the different ways to create
the illusion of space on a two dimentional surface.
The Element of Art, VALUE refers to the lightness or darkness of a color.
It is an important tool for artist because it defines a form.
Contrast of value separates objects in space.
Value vocabulary includes tint (adding white to make something lighter), shade (adding black to make something darker) and hue (the true color).
Shadow, highlight, and light source are also some vocabulary words to consider with this element of art.
Robert Indiana
Understanding the psychological and symbolic effects of color, and color theory
Color has a profound effect on us even though we may not be aware of it. Every day our emotions, moods, mental acuity and even physical sensations—such as appetite—are influenced by the colors that surround us.
Imagine that during the night while you were sleeping someone came and painted your walls and ceiling black. How would it make you feel as you began your day? Now imagine waking up to a bright sky blue, or a brilliant yellow, or a pale mint green.
Artists and designers—as well as advertisers—use color very deliberately to make you feel a certain way. Ever wonder why McDonald’s uses so much red and yellow? The colors red and yellow stimulate appetite. Color in the clothing you wear can also have an unconscious effect on others.
Color is the element of art that is produced when light, striking an object, is reflected back to the eye.
There are three (3) properties to color. First is hue, which simply means the name we give to a color (red, yellow, blue, etc.).
The second property is intensity, which refers to the strength and vividness of the color. For example, we may describe the color blue as "royal" (bright, rich, vibrant) or "dull" (grayed).

The third and final property of color is its value, meaning its lightness or darkness. The terms shade and tint are in reference to value changes in colors.
Pablo Picasso's Blue Period
Colors speak all languages. (Joseph Addison)
Mini Lesson: Outlines

the outlines of the objects at your table.
Write your name and period on the back of your paper.
Put your paper in your art folder to use for another project.
You have 5 minutes to complete
this assignment.
Mini Lesson: Contour Lines
Each table has a drawing assignment that you will follow
Follow the directions to create contour lines, blind contour lines, and continuous contour lines.
Mine Lesson: Cross-contour lines
Mini Lesson: Shape
Mini Lesson: Form, Value and Space
Shade in value scale using 5 values, ranging from white to black.
Shade in sphere using 5 values. Follow the contour of the shpere when shading.
Shade in background with contrasting values.
**** If you are finished, shade in your outline paper.
Try creating contrast by puting your light values against your dark values.
Mini Lesson: Color
Create a value scale using color
Texture is used to describe either the way a three-dimensional work actually feels when touched, or the visual "feel" of a two-dimensional work.
Take rocks, for example. A real, 3-D rock might feel rough or smooth, and definitely feels hard when touched or picked up. A painter, depicting a rock, would create the illusions of these qualities through use of color, line, shape, etc.

3 Different Types of Texture
Actual Texture
Simulated Texture
Invented Texture
Mini Lesson: Texture
Trace your hand on a sheet of paper
Create 5 different textures on each of the apendages (include actual, simulated and invented)
If finished early, create a background
1. Line- The element of design that may be two-dimensional (pencil or paper), three-dimensional (wire), or implied (the edge of a shape or form).
