Collect items or photographs that are important to your family history. Items that tell a story about your family and your heritage. Use these items as inspiration for an art project based on this theme. You may visually tell your story using any visual media: photography, painting, drawing, sculpture, graphic design etc.
Draw one or more planning sketches in your sketchbook. Find another artist that uses the same media. Print an example of their art work and glue it in your sketchbook.
In your sketchbook make a list of supplies you will need to complete this project.
Gather supplies and begin production.
What you need to show:
*Visual arts use their own unique sensory language for creating and communicating.
*Identity is explored, expressed, and impacted through arts experiences.
*The arts provide opportunities to gain insight into the perspectives and experiences of people from a variety of times, places, and cultures.
*Creative arts experiences can build community and nurture relationships with others.
An understanding and application of the: Visual Tool Box
Colour theory: what’s light got to do with it? primary, secondary, tertiary,
complimentary, warm and cool, analogues, monochromatic
Composition: rule of thirds, perspective, check your corners, symmetry, a-
symmetry, radial balance, balance, harmony, unity,
juxtaposition, opposition, repetition
Elements of design: light, line, shape, tone, form, colour, texture
Design strategies: simplification, repetition, manipulation, enlargement,
exaggeration, compare, contrast
Sketchbook: For each sketchbook assignment below use at least one visual tool from each section of the Visual Tool Box.
**Draw an animal in motion due: Sept. 27
**Draw 3D cube, cone, sphere, cylinder
**Draw a tone or value scale of 10 shades from black to white
**Go to www.shoeonthewall.weebly.com > click Art How To’s > Painting Resources > Colour Theory Explained > read this article down to “Colour Harmony”, then paint a colour wheel including primary, secondary, and tertiary colours
Finish reading the article on the colour theory website mentioned above, then
paint a monochromatic (you will have to figure out what this word means), complimentary, and analogous gradient
Use paint to create a 3D texture
**Paint a 3D cube, cone, sphere (you can modify the shapes if you want)
Draw a subject with interesting form using a single line
The Human Body: using a modal draw a single body part
Illustrations from a book
Draw a scene from a movie
Project planning & organization:
For each art project, in your sketchbook using images and/or writing, answer these questions:
What am I being asked to make?
Draw and write a description of what I plan to make?
What am I trying to say or communicate with this art project?
Have I studied the work of other artists who are trying to say the same thing, and have I collected examples of their work?
What is my subject and have I studied other artists’ work containing similar subjects? (example: I am painting a fur tree, I have looked at Joe Smith’s paintings of fur trees.)
What reference photographs will help me make my project?
What materials / media am I going to use to make my project and where can I get these materials?
When will I collect my materials? What day do I need to have my materials in class for this project?
What are the steps for making this art project?
Wire sculpture from single line drawing
Realistic acrylic painting inspired from a memory - Go to www.shoeonthewall.weebly.com > click Art How To’s > Painting Resources > scroll down to Painting Inspired by Memory > watch the video then decide what memory you will paint > on the same website read Composition Tips (these tips are how your painting will be evaluated, so read them often while you paint) > collect reference images to help you
Design a large Christmas ornament
Face of a celebrity – collage using only the persons photos
Design project: logo design
Photography : landscape, still life, portraiture, commercial, nature etc.
The Word Project
More small group projects
Graffiti ??? how???
Emily Carr, Art Institute, Equinox Gallery etc. , Burns Bog, Stanley Park
In the streets of Paris, artists Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, and a few others organized the group during the latter part of 1873 and were subsequently joined by Paul Cezanne, Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley and Berthe Morisot.
Using acrylic paint, your task is to pick one of the these artists' paintings and copy it to the best of your ability so that the viewer cannot tell which painting is a fraud!! You will also write a 200 word description giving the viewer the story behind the painting. Make this interesting to read, don't bore me by cutting and pasting bunch of words from wikipedia.
Here is the catch, you will be painting this on a large scale with a group of 3 - 4 people.
You will be evaluated on how well you copy: the original artist's style of paint strokes, use of light and shadow, colour pallet, rendering of subjects, composition, and show that you know the story behind the painting.
Interior design project criteria: Redesign the art studio by making an interior design board that will convince teachers and school administration to implement your plan to improve the art studio. Your board will have the following:
/5 Floor plan map drawing including positions of all walls, doors, sinks / counters, furniture / large movable items (draw all objects as if you are looking down on them). Must be attached to the design board
/5 At least one 3D drawing from one view point drawn with sharp clear lines and full colour must be attached to the design board
/2 At least 2 samples of building materials used must be attached to the design board
/2 At least 2 samples of paint colours used must be attached to the design board
/3 One detailed paragraph describing your overall plan.
/3 Detailed written descriptions to go with all images / material samples
Objects that must be in the art studio:
- teacher work station of some form -computer work stations of some form -large white wall for displaying work
-separate white screen / wall for image projection -25 easels
-12 tall and narrow carts to go beside easels with set of drawers or shelves -25 stools -sculpture tables and seating for 25 people -light table
-2 pottery wheels -shelves to hold various paper
-improved paint drying system -human model / still life display area
-paper cutter -printing press
Existing studio items that cannot be removed: storage cupboards, sinks and counters, clay firing kiln, four walls, 2 doors, windows
Everything else can be changed… its up to your imagination!!!
Think of what the art studio is used for. Things to consider:
When I arrange the objects in the room how will I allow for easy movement around the space with 30 people working?
What new lighting can be installed?
What materials can I include that will cut down the noise?
How can I make the studio more appealing to the eyes? What colours, materials, arrangement would make it a relaxing and inspiring art making space?

Here is how you and your artist group will be evaluated:
sculpture is anatomically correct /5 position of sculpture and display location is well planned /5 sculpture attracts attention of the public and questions what is normal in public spaces /5 sculpture clothing gives it character like a real person /5 public reactions have been recorded /5 /25
How have you participated in the group?
creative contributions to planning /3
work with others /4 being prepared with supplies /3 /10
Pick a family road trip / vacation you have been on that you have lots of memories of. Collect a road map, trip photos, and images of the shapes on the inside or outside of your family vehicle (NO licence plates please). Bring all this stuff to school.
Look at examples of the project by clicking on "Art How's To's" > "Painting Resources". Lay out the map family trip photos, and car photos in front of you. In your sketch book turn your car images into their simple shapes. Draw some ideas for how you will use your map, photos, and the shapes from your car to create painting similar to the examples on the website.
#2 keep track of your dreams over the week, pick one or several images from your dream and draw / visually record them in any way you want into your sketchbook. If you don't have a dream, draw a past dream or make one up.
#3 imagine you are a bug on a part of your body, draw what that bug would see
#4 using a very unique or strange media that you have never used before, create a piece of art that expresses the intersection between the "real world" and the digital world
#5 find a subject made of many complex shapes (play ground, dinner table chair, heating ducts, etc.), look at it and in your mind simplify it into its basic shapes as if it was only 2D, now notice the negative spaces around it, using a black felt or pencil crayon outline those negative spaces into your sketchbook, using a blue / purple / red felt or pencil crayon colour in the negative spaces
#6 using the images given to you from the grade 7 students pick one object or scene and redraw it in your sketchbook. Improve it, add details, make the perspective correct, change as you see fit to make a scene that can be part of the big mural. Please have this done for next art class.
#7 for the DX Design Competition drawing two 3D sketches in your sketchbook for your chosen design challenge. You can see examples of past winners by clicking Design Competition Info then scroll down and click on Resources.
