Lesson Ten Integrated Concepts Language Arts: descriptive language, oral language Visual Art: composition, color, shape/form, light, space, still-life, lithography Science: carnivorous plants Mathematics: three dimensional shapes
When an artist arranges objects and/or containers, like pitchers, bowls, and plates on a surface with flowers, fruit, vegetables, or even animals, we call their artwork a still-life. Take a few minutes to look very carefully at each of these still-life paintings very carefully. Try to observe every detail.
These artworks have both two dimensional and three dimensional shapes. Can you point out and name some of them?
Compare the way the artists showed the space in these artworks. What do you notice about the background in each composition? What do you notice about the textures in these compositions? Can you point out glossy, reflective, shiny, soft, smooth, rough and velvety surfaces? Can you imagine how the artist made the paint or ink look like all these different textures?
The tall flowers in this painting are from a very rare carnivorous plant call a pitcher plant. Can you explain why this form might be named after a pitcher? Carnivorous means that this plant eats insects. Actually, the insects fall down into the long tubes and are dissolved by the plant. What do you know about any other carnivorous plants?
This artwork is a lithograph. Lithography is a form of printmaking where the artist draws on a stone surface, then uses a special process to print multiples of the image on paper. What reasons can you think of that this artist might have chosen to show only a part of each of the zinnias? Can you imagine why the artist might have chosen to use a tin can instead of a vase for the flower?
This painting has many different elements in the composition; flowers, containers, cloth, painted table, and a decorated wall. Many of the objects are unusual or exotic. This lithograph has only a few, common objects and it shows only part of two ordinary flowers called zinnias. Can you compare and contrast the artists purpose in these two artworks? Would you prefer to make a simple or a complex artwork? Explain why.
