Assemblage Sculpture

3D AP Art, Tim Hunt

 

Objective:

To create an assemblage sculptures that is a reflection of you.

 

Procedure:

Collect things that create a theme that create a reflection of you and your personality. Sort through your found objects to gain an idea for your creation then build upon. (see examples).

Assemblage is an untraditional sculpture usually with an attitude that makes it contemporary. An assemblage sculpture is the bringing together of matters (assembling) rather than the making (creating) of the work. The sculpture will be a sculpture in the round.

Is your sculpture innovative? The sculpture must be self-supporting, stable and at least 3 feet tall.

 


Dry Point Etching

Tim Hunt - AP Drawing

Objective:

Students will gain an understanding of the intaglio process of printmaking.

 

Procedure:

Student will be given a Plexiglas plate (printing plate). They will need to do a drawing

Using hatching, cross-hatching technique to create the imagery. The drawing needs to be at least one inch smaller than the plate. If it is a small plate ½ from the edge. After completing the drawing they need to tape it to the back of the plate. Follow procedures on attached sheet.

 

Materials:

Inking Plates. Newsprint.

Files Etching Paper.

Masking Tape. Etching Inks.

Etching tool. Petroleum cleaner. or Baby Oil

Non-lint rags. Mat board. or Palette Knives.

Etching Press. Tarlatan Wipe.

Drawing Pencils. Drawing Paper.

Wool Blankets. (For printing press)

Rapidograph Pens.

 

Vocabulary:

Etching Plexiglas

Intaglio Press

Etching needle Tarlaton cloth

Plate Edition

Etching paper

 

Evaluation:

Did you use the 4 C’s (good Composition, Good Craftsmanship as in a good clean print, Extreme Contrast such as showing extreme hatching and cross hatching technique, and Catch the viewer’s eye.)

 


Drawing

Watercolor/ Prismacolor Drawing by Tim Hunt

Unit Title:

Mixed Media drawing using Watercolors and Prismacolor pencils and Prismacolor art stixs

 

Objective for this lesson:

Students will gain an understanding of how to create a mixed media drawing through the use of Prismacolor pencils, art stixs and watercolor.

 

Procedures:

Students will take two sheets of white watercolor paper and brush watercolors in two different interesting color schemes such as complementary, warm, cool, analogous, etc. on them. Then, while the watercolor is wet, they crinkle plastic bags on top of the watercolor paper, and leave it on until the watercolor paint dries. After the watercolor dries, students should look at their papers and try to find some hidden image, such as a person, shape, or animal in each watercolor design. Choose the watercolor design with the best hidden image.  Expanding on what they see, draw enhancements using Prismacolor  art stixs and Prismacolor pencils on the chosen design so that they have a finished composition that enhances the hidden watercolor image.  Use a Prismacolor blending stick to blend with. The watercolor design does not have to be the dominating factor in the composition.  (If the watercolor paper is too wrinkled to easily draw on, the student may smooth the paper out and mount it on mat board.)

 

Supplies:

White Watercolor Paper. Watercolor Paint.

Plastic dry cleaner bags Drawing Pencils.

Prismacolor Colored Pencils. / Stixs Watercolor Sable Brushes.

Spray Mount Adhesive. Mounting board or Mat board.

Kneaded Rubber Erasers. Tortillons.

 

Vocabulary words:

Composition Color schemes Mixed Media

 

Evaluation:

Does artwork show good compositional skills? Does artwork show good craftsmanship (no torn or folded paper, mastery of blending with their Prismacolors using both the pencils, sticks and blending stick)?  Does artwork show mastery of Prismacolor technique? Did student take advantage of the watercolor effect?

 


Realistic Still life Drawing – Cone cups & foam worms by Tim Hunt

Objective:

Students will create a realistic drawing using graphite pencils and still life material provided by teacher.

 

Procedure:

Student will take paper drinking cone/cups and foam worms and arrange them into an interesting three-dimensional composition (you may cut the cups and foam worms and/or glue them to the poster board). On a sheet of Cold Press Illustration Board., block in your drawing. Using a variety of graphite pencils, draw the composition in a realistic manner.  Be sure to use the full range of the value scale and the 4 C’s (good Composition, good Craftsmanship, extreme Contrast, and Catch the viewer’s eye). You must use at least 7 cups and 5 foam worms. The worms and cups must touch all four sides of your illustration board. This will insure that the composition does not create a bull’s eye effect. The only white that should be showing is highlights.

 

Materials Needed:

Evaluation:

Do you have an interesting composition? Do you have good craftsmanship? Is your composition realistic? Did you use the full range of the value scale? Does your composition catch the viewer’s eye?

Corrugated Paper Composition –Value Drawing by Tim Hunt

 

Objective:

To show the entire value gradation range using various graphite pencils.

 

Procedure:

Students will take white corrugated paper or light bulb boxes with white corrugated interiors and arrange them into an interesting sculptural composition.  To create the composition, students may fold, cut or tear the paper.  After designing the composition, they will glue the corrugated paper to white poster board with rubber cement to create a permanent still life arrangement.  Arrange a one directional light source.  Students then should lightly block in a drawing of the entire corrugated sculptural composition or use a viewfinder to focus on a particularly good composition part of the corrugated sculpture. Use a soft pencil on illustration board.  Using the full range of drawing pencils, draw and shade a drawing of their chosen subject using at least six value gradations. Show extreme contrast in drawing, using the entire value gradation scale – show highlights, cast shadows, core shadows, and reflected light.  Drawing must touch all four sides of the illustration board.  Highlights will be the only white showing in the drawing.

 

Supplies:

Corrugated paper or light bulb containers that have a corrugated interior

Full range of Drawing Pencils. from hard to soft

Kneaded Rubber Erasers.

Illustration Board. Light source

White Posterboard.  View finder

Rubber Cement. Scissors.

 

Evaluation:

Did you use the four C’s in your drawing (good Craftsmanship, good Composition, extreme Contrast, Catch the viewer’s eye)?  Did you use at least six value gradations?  Does the drawing touch all four sides of the illustration board?  Are highlights the only white showing in the drawing?

Does the drawing show shadows from only one light source?
