3D STREET ART: A QUESTION OF PERSPECTIVE

Resultado de imagen de one point linear perspective



The wife of 15th-century Italian artist Paolo Uccello used to beg him to come to bed. She was fed up of him staying up all night drawing objects with the new method of 3D illusion – or as it was called at the time, "perspective". He still wouldn't come to bed. "This perspective is such a sweet thing," he said.





As you already know we live in a three-dimensional world:  


1. Height, 2. Width (Length) 3.Depth
We can change or viewpoint, trasnforming the way we see things. That way objects seem to be smaller of bigger depending whether we are close or far away from them. The same way objects might seem to vanish or disappear when we move around them or we move away from them. Light also plays a very interesting role in the way we perceive objects.

ART AND GEOMETRY

REGULAR POLYGONS

Our first Technical Drawing Activity will be a mandala done with regular polygons. Here are a few tutorials to refresh your knowledge about the Regular Polygons' constructions.





THEORY FOR THE NOTEBOOK 





Lets see now how to draw regular polygons inscribed in a circumference:



REGULAR POLYGONS GIVEN THE SIDE:





ACTIVITY: REGULAR POLYGONS MANDALA

Let´s pratice the Geometrical Constructions we have learnt by designing our own MANDALA.

FIRST DO A PRACTISE IN NORMAL PAPER 

STEPS: 
1- In the center of a normal paper you draw a circumference 8 cm radius.
2- Then you divide the circumference in equal parts (7,8,9,11...).
3- You draw regular polygons, depending on the parts you divided the circumference. For example: if you divided it in 8 equal parts you can do a star octagon or an octagon, if it was 11 an hendecagon, and so on...

THEN THE FINAL MANDALA IN THE DRAWING PAPER (BASIK PAPER)

In the drawing paper you will repeat the previous steps and then trace the lines with felt-pens and colour the mandala with colour pencils, feltpens, crayons, pastels, water-colour or temperas. 

YOU WILL HAND IN THE BOTH THE PRACTISE AND THE FINAL WORK

COLOUR THEORY

LET'S PLAY






THEORY FOR THE NOTEBOOK


You Will have the Colour Exam the first week of April 2017. Use this theory to study for it and bring the primary Colour pencils.

FIRST TASKS WITH COLOUR

COLOUR WHEEL WITH COLOUR PENCILS

Draw an 8 cm radius circumference and divide it in 12 equal parts, then colour the primary, secondary and tertiary colours (in this order) using only the three primary colour pencils. Write the names of the colours and divide it in two parts, indicating warm and cool colour schemes.

ART MASTERS PROJECT

LET'S LEARN THROUGH ART MASTERS! 

This project involves research and written exercises as well as different technique practices and acting (Role Play exercises). 

Let's see a little bit more about it here: 



FIRST PART OF THE PROJECT

COMPLETE THESE CHARTS: 






How to look for an ART PIECE or CURIOSITIES related to AN ARTIST OR ART WORK? 

  1. If you look in GOOGLE IMAGES, make sure you have the correct Author. You can check in google Art Project. 
  2. Check in ACADEMIC GOOGLE for information extra, in case you can not find anywhere else.
  3. Check in Youtube, slideshare and other different pages for curiosities. Check also in different languages. Then, you can translate the info. 
FOR EXAMPLE:

TEXTURES IN ART

Texture


The visual elements of an image are: POINT, LINE, SHAPE, FORM (SPACE), VALUE, COLOUR AND TEXTURE.

During the passed first term and part of this term we have seen four of these visual elements: Point, Line, Shape and Value. The next visuals elements to see are TEXTURE, COLOUR and FORM/SPACE (PERSPECTIVE).

TEXTURE is a powerful art element because it can quickly evoke memories and emotions. Start becoming
more aware of textures all around you—the carpet, in the clothes you’re wearing, and the fur on your cat.  Let's see these presentations and video to get a better idea of this concept:
