ACTIVITY 2: SELF-PORTRAIT "COLLAGE"

 


ACTIVITY/TAREA 2: SELF-PORTRAIT "COLLAGE"


The AIM or idea of this activity is:  Describe yourself  (things that you like or dislike, your personality) visually using the technique of the collage. I know a lot of you do not have magazines at home now. You do not need them, you can use toilet paper and paint it, or just colour papers, and your own drawings and lettering.

UNDERSTANDING COLLAGE





EXPLORING YOUR IDENTITY 
(Information and images from the blog www.plastinglish.blogspot.com)

Making a self-portrait is a great way to express and explore your identity.

1st of ESO: Exploring

The idea is to do the silhouettes of your head and fill in your head with a images of what is going in your brain, what you prefer, what you are fond of...  You can also extend the images to the outside the silhouette. And add lettering. 

Ideas to get you started: clothes, music, words, sports, food, people you admire, singers, actors...


INSTRUCTIONS

1st STEP: Trace your head on two papers (using the window), one could be a normal white paper and the other a black or colour cardboard.

2nd STEP: Fill in the head shape with images in one of the papers. 

3rd STEP: The second shape will be the template of the final frame of your self-portrait, so, you will have to cut out the inside part. Let's do it.

EXAMPLE OF A SELF EVALUATION 
AND DESCRIPTION OF YOUR WORK OF ART:
"Hi teacher,
This is the description of my work and my evaluation. I think I am being honest: 
At the start I needed help from my mom to do the profile of my face. Then I worked on the images that best described me and my hobbies. I used the following images in the collage:
- Fire, to describe my passion in everything I do.
- A beautiful landscape, because we are part of nature, and I love it. 
- A wolf pack, because the way wolfs take care of each other, shows the power and strength of the community. 
- Portraits of women artists, because their lives inspire me. 
I organized all those images in the shape of my profile, like you indicated. And I added the words LOVE, HEALTH AND STRENGTH in the background, because I think it is what we need right now. 
 I am very happy with the result. I think I have done a good job, because I followed the instructions. It also has a good presentation (clean and tidy) a good composition (distribution of the elements of the drawing in the space of the paper), and I really enjoyed doing it. I think my work does not deserve less than a 9."

ACTIVITY/TAREA 1: ONE POINT LINEAR PERSPECTIVE



ACTIVITY: "ONE POINT LINEAR 

PERSPECTIVE"


Following the information and vídeos you have here, 

do your own drawing.

Do not forget to be as original and creative as you can. 

HISTORY OF LINEAR PERSPECTIVE











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


1. Height, 2. 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. 


3D OPTICAL ILLUSION



These are examples for our NEXT ACTIVITY (one point linear perspective):

3D STREET ART: A QUESTION OF 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.
