More often than not, students become stuck on what to write, feeling like they might say something “dumb.” Or, sometimes they just may have trouble articulating their thoughts. Many times, art teachers have a set of prompts for students to use to help direct the writing process. This can be an effective way to get students to reflect on specific objectives and goals, but it can also produce forced one or two-word reactions. Yes.

When I stumbled upon Cassie Stephen’s blog, I KNEW you would all love her creative, art-inspired outfits she wears in the classroom as much as I did. You see, this year in her art room, Cassie has a goal to create (yes, from scratch) a famous painting themed outfit for herself for each of the monthly artists she teaches. She is no stranger to creating fun and thematic outfits for her classroom, as you can see below (notice the one with the LED lights on it – Amazing!) However, the idea for an outfit each month started with Hokuasi. So far this year Cassie has created an Andy Warhol – inspired Campbell’s soup dress and Jackson Pollack Splatter piece, along with her Great Wave dress. In response to her ‘untraditional approach’ Cassie says: “One of the biggest things I like to stress in my art room is that each of the children is an artist and as such they are all unique. #98 Finally....something different.

Seeing these paintings and painters with fresh eyes, many of whom I hadn’t really looked at since the early art school days back in 1973. It’s always good to examine what we think we know especially after my foray into colour with An Illuminated Book of Cats. Geoform | Michel Bugaud. In my personal approach, I try to explore the creative process through the conscious conception of mathematical rules—and geometric ones are the easiest to handle—with and without the balancing of random factors. Doing so, I imagine a mathematical (geometric) construction rule, which is next programmed on the computer. In the second step, I influence the primary rule by introducing random factors, based on number generation.

To organize 2D space using mathematical rules, I start from a chosen primary structure (either as described by a mathematical law, or as a raw image); iteratively elementary forms will progress following self-programmed algorithms to fill the entire 2D space. As an image, this concept of work meets that of life where the initial life program (DNA) is modulated by environmental influence (as a random element). In my work, this approach can also be extended into 3D space (i.e., sculpture). contact & information more information about the artist Robert Delaunay on Abstract Art Framed. Robert Delaunay’s gift to us is his bold use of colour. His paintings express a great love of what he sees as the rhythm of nature and the movement of colors. His work using coloured ‘simultaneous discs’ was influenced by the research of the 19th century chemist Eugene Chevreul who concluded that "Two adjacent colours, when seen by the eye, will appear as dissimilar as possible".

Delaunay’s work encourages us to see the world with fresh eyes, to notice the shape and colour of the world around us. It fills us with feelings of light and optimism. It calls us to embrace the world and our sense of place in it. Early Years Robert Delaunay was born into an aristocratic family in Paris, France in 1885. In 1909, Delaunay began to paint a series of studies of the city of Paris and the Eiffel Tower, works clearly influenced by Georges Braque and Paul Cezanne.

Development of a new style The Delaunays, along with their son, spent the duration of The First World War in Portugal. Later Years. Project ART-A-DAY: Lesson: Bad Hair Day (Line and Shape) A change in curriculum structure: You may have read about the way we structured our Art Survey course last year in my post about the Identity Sketchbook Cover. After looking at the pros and cons of this intense structure (1 Element of Art each week), I wanted to develop a less intense path. While I felt like my students really got to know the Elements really well last year, I just felt that it was a lot of work for both me and my students (which isn't a bad thing, necessarily). I also really wanted some more major pieces of art along the way (especially for the All-City Art Show, which we need to have artwork for by January). So, instead, we structured the curriculum to focus on a few Elements at a time, with the same idea of using the sketchbook for notes and exercises, and then applying those together into a piece of artwork.

Our first Elements of Art were Line and Shape. I also ran into ZENTANGLES! Then... they had a baby... and WA-LA! The best of both worlds... The Project: 1. 2. 3. The Visual Elements of Art. The Visual Elements - Pattern PAUL KLEE (1879-1940) Dream City, 1921 (warercolor and oil) Pattern is made by repeating or echoing the elements of an artwork to communicate a sense of balance, harmony, contrast, rhythm or movement. There are two basic types of pattern in art: Natural Pattern and Man-Made Pattern. Both natural and man-made patterns can be regular or irregular, organic or geometric, structural or decorative, positive or negative and repeating or random.

Natural Pattern: Pattern in art is often based on the inspiration we get from observing the natural patterns that occur in nature. Man-Made Pattern: Pattern in art is used for both structural and decorative purposes.

Australian Indigenous. Works by John Coburn. Catholic Education Office Sydney - Lily's love of landscape wins the prize. 2014 Clancy Prize winner Lily Platts was overwhelmed to discover her Year 12 signature HSC piece 'The Road Home' was also the winning artwork in this year's Religious Art competition, the Clancy Prize. The 18 year-old, who took out the top award last Friday in Sydney's Catholic schools' most prestigious annual Religious Art competition, paid tribute to the place where she found her inspiration. "I come from a small country town called Bombala on the Victorian border in southern NSW," said Lily. "The work pays homage to the natural environment in which I grew up. " Lily's oil painting on canvas is a sweep of her hometown's rolling pastoral landscape. "I live on a farm, where there is nobody for kilometers," she said. Lily, who graduated from St Scholastica's College Glebe, used a mix of paints and a pallet knife to recreate a textured painting of photographs of Bombala, which reflect her deep feelings for the landscape, and her love of its natural beauty.

HSC Visual Arts. Foerstel : creative + results » fashionably dressed animal portraits. When first encountering this body of photographs by Madrid-based advertising and industrial photographer Miguel Vallinas it’s easy to view it as a familiar “animals dressed as people” project. However, as you look closer you realize it’s a bit more than the usual. Aside from the solid retouching, lighting and overall execution, Vallinas took this anthropomorphic project a bit further and imagined what the fully-realized wardrobe of each animal might look like if it were wearing human clothes. This project, titled Segundas Pieles (Second Skins), is an ongoing series that includes some 50+ animals whose personalities seem to be perfectly amplified by their pitch-perfect attire, making the portraits more like human nature facing your inner animal. We’re pretty sure the hipster bird in the cardigan works at a coffee shop in downtown Boise.

AC: What inspires you? LA: As a product of my environment, I reflect on local surroundings and aim to capture a quirky side of nature that moves me and my audience to view creation in a different light. Whatever impacts on my life, also impacts my work. Economy, society, religion and family are some of these. I observe and study each of my subjects at length. My aim is to find in each subject a certain side of their personality which is not always obvious in a life setting and of which I personally relate to. AC: Describe your art in a sentence.

Individual experience is key Rothko strongly believed in the importance of individual, personal experience in relation to his paintings.

In his vision, the viewer would be drawn into a deep, quasi-religious relationship when faced with the canvas, a state of emotional vulnerability and total receptiveness, analogous to Rothko’s own emotional state as he painted the canvas in his studio.The Gemeentemuseum has put this conviction into practice ingeniously, hanging several paintings individually inside small, private alcoves that allow for quiet contemplation, and create microcosms of personal experience. The master of colour ‘[wasn’t] interested in colour’ Since his untimely death, Rothko’s pioneering of the Color Field movement has been described by many critics as indisputable, and groundbreaking. Yet to the painter himself, colour was but a vehicle towards an emotional reaction evoked in the viewer, striped of any aesthetic or decorative undercurrent. Rothko’s early works are figurative.

Seurat - Private life of a Masterpiece (BBC Documentary) Fauvism Movement. "If the trees look yellow to the artist then painted a bright yellow they must be. " Synopsis Fauvism was the first twentieth-century movement in modern art. Inspired by the examples of van Gogh, Gauguin, Seurat, and Cézanne, it grew out of a loosely allied group of French painters with shared interests. Henri Matisse was eventually recognized as the leader of Les Fauves, or "The Wild Beasts," and like the group, he emphasized the use of intense color as a vehicle for describing light and space, as well as for communicating the artist's emotional state. In these regards, Fauvism proved to be an important precursor to Cubism and Expressionism, respectively, and an inspiration for future modes of abstraction.

Key Ideas Fauvism never developed into a coherent movement in the manner of Impressionism or Surrealism, but instead grew from the work of several acquaintances who shared common enthusiasms.
