Transcript of Kandinsky

Relevant facts
Facts not relevant to us
Born in Russia in 1866. Died 1944.
Kandinsky learned to play the
cello and the piano as a child.
In 1855 Kandinsky enrolled
into (starts) Moscow Law School.
Kandinsky meets a German-American
artist called Gabriele Munter in 1902,
and travels across Europe and North
Africa, creating lots of small paintings
like a travel log of where he has been.
1912 Kandinsky publishes ‘Concerning the Spiritual in Art’.
Kandinsky meets and marries Nina Andreyevskaya in 1917.
In 1914 in Germany, when war broke out, Kandinsky left Munich to take refuge in Switzerland, then went to Moscow where he remained until 1921.
Kandinsky moves towards abstraction, changing forms (in this case a rider on a horse) into line, shape and colour. Later on this develops further into pure shape, line and colour.
Kandinsky believed colour and
shapes could affect our mood,
just like music can affect how we feel.
“Colour is a power which
directly influences the soul.”
“… lend your ears to music, open your
eyes to painting, and … stop thinking! Just ask yourself whether the work has enabled you to “walk about” into a hitherto unknown world. If the answer is yes, what more do you want?”

Baseline Test
Lesson 1:
Task: Draw a scrunched up piece of paper
to the very best of your ability.
Parents: The end of KS3 Target Level is calculated from the level the pupil's achieve on this first baseline test, which is independent work, without any teacher support.
Lesson 2:
Presentation of Art books
Task 1: Draw a line going across all the pages in your book
Task 2: On every 5th page add in a large A4 fold-out page. And on every 3rd page add in a small flap/fold-out/concertina book... (unless it already has a fold-out on that page)

OR - Make up your OWN rule for how many flaps/fold-outs etc you add in
Today you will be given your new Art books, along with the rules about how to keep them nice.
Lesson 3:
Drawing exercises
Title Page

Task: Using shapes and lines taken from Kandinsky's artwork create the title 'Kandinsky' somewhere across a double page in your artbook.
It could go up the side of the page or diagonally across the middle - think about what you like in your presentation.
Do you have a flap on this page which the title could extend onto?
Task: Here is a list of facts about Kandinsky.
Can you match up which facts are relevant to
us as Year 7s? Do we really need to know all of this?
Drawing from Music
Task 1: Split an A4 page into 4.

Task 2: Listen to the three different pieces of music, one at a time. Try to draw shapes, lines and patterns from what you can hear in the music.
DO NOT draw recognisable objects, such as apples, houses, faces...
Task 3: Use a piece of tracing
paper to copy off the best shapes
and patterns to make one full and
layered design, which we will
be using later.
Collaged Colour Wheel
Task 2: Collage the different colours from the magazines/wrappers/junk mail/random objects you have collected.
You may need to use the hot glue gun to stick bottle tops and 3D objects - talk to your teacher. DO NOT JUST HELP YOURSELF!
Task 1: Trace around the stencil wheel. Make sure you mark off where ALL the lines come off the wheel.
Join up the marks around the edge to make 6 even triangles in the wheel.
Write the colours or the first letter of the colours to remind yourself which colour goes where.
Task 1: Trace around the stencil wheel. Make sure you mark off where ALL the lines come off the wheel.
Join up the marks around the edge to make 6 even triangles in the wheel.
Write the colours or the first letter of the colours to remind yourself which colour goes where.
Task 2: Watch the teacher demonstrate how to paint neatly up to the edges of the sections AND how to mix colours.

Now have a go for yourself!
Drawing from

Enlarging a drawing
In Art you need to know how to enlarge an image to make it bigger.
The best way of doing this is with a grid.
Task: Copying ONE BOX AT A TIME, copy the lines you see into the relevant grid square.
Things to make sure you get right:
make sure the grid is the same way up as the picture you are drawing
make sure the lines that cross over boxes join up if they are supposed to join up!
make sure you estimate measurements of where lines are supposed to be - e.g. is the line half way across the box or more than half way across the box?
IF IT HELPS split the larger boxes into smaller boxes!
Drawing a single object
Drawing a group of objects
Breaking a complicated object into simple shapes and forms
Task: Create an interesting, layered still life composition; arranging big objects next to small objects with some infront of the other and maybe even some at different height levels.
Task: Draw a clear image of a group of objects.
Focus on the scale and measurements of how
the objects relate to each other.
Remember what your teacher has said: use one measurement from one object to see how many times it will fit into a different measurement.
Wassily Kandinsky
(1866 - 1944)
Task 1: Split a double page in your
Art book into 4
Task 2: In each quarter you will be creating a different style of drawing with different drawing techniques.

Listen to the teacher's instructions and just do your best!
Different artists have different styles and techniques to create their artwork. Some work from imagination, some work from observation and some work from memory. Some artists may not even be able to see!

There is no right or wrong way to draw. The key thing to remember is to
Continuous line
Drawing from Memory
60 Marks Drawing
Opposite Hand Drawing
Blind Drawing
TASK 1: Begin this homework project by producing a title page all about you. This must include an image and at least 5 paragraphs about you. Presentation is important so your page should be as creative as you can imagine.
TASK 2: Find out some information about the artists you will be studying at Swanmore and add them to your timeline. Your teacher will give you the list of 10 artists. You should include the following: full name of artist, date of birth, date of death (if applicable), place of birth and a small thumbnail image of the artist or his/her work.
Tonal ladders
Task 1: Draw a row of 5 boxes, each roughly 4 x 4cm.
Task 2: Using what you've learnt from watching the teacher's demonstration fill the tonal ladders in.
Choose whether you will start at the lightest end or the darkest end.
Task 3: Repeat the boxes and use a different media to fill in the new tonal ladder.
Final pieces:
DEADLINE: week beginning 5th November
Contour Drawing
Can you explain why
this hand looks 3D?
How can you make an object look 3D?
What problems might come up if you apply this to other objects?
