What Is Art Criticism ? description, analysis, interpretation and judgment of collage art using 3 painting techniques Presented by Pat Yanulis, Hillsborough County Intended for educational purposes only
How Can you Figure Out Art? COPY THIS CHART DescribeAnalyzeInterpretJudge “What do you see?” Description = pure listing of the object or objects you see. "How did the artist do it?” Analysis = discussion of the elements of art and principles of design "Why did the artist create it and what does it mean?” Interpretation = discovering the main idea for this type of art. “Is it a good artwork?” Judgment = giving it rank in relation to other works and consider its originality.
Description = What Do I See? What Kind of Art? PaintingX PhotographX SculptureX Print PotteryX
Description = Identification of Objects What do you see?How is it placed? 1. Farm workers1. Horizontal 2. Picnickers2. Landscape 3. Wheat field 4. Tree
Description = What Do I See? What Medium is used? PaintX Film PaperX ClayX SteelX
Analysis = How Did The Artist Do It? Using the Elements of Art! They are the building blocks of an artistic creation, a "visual language" or "visual alphabet" used by the artist.
Analysis = using the elements of art to organize the work Line – a continuous mark made on a surface Shape – two-dimensional (circle, square, rectangle, triangle) and encloses space Form – three-dimensional and encloses and takes up space Color – that which is perceived when light hits and reflects off an object. Three properties of color are Hue (name of a color), Intensity (strength of a color) and Value (lightness or darkness of a color) Texture – the surface quality or feel of an object Space – the illusion of space is created through light and shadow

Analysis = Using the Elements of Art How did the artist do it? Using … Space – the area above, below, around and between an artwork; it is created through light and shadow
How did the artist do it?... using the Principles of Design! -the ways in which the color, line, shape, form, texture and space are organized. Analysis = Using the principles of design
Analysis = Using the Elements of Art PRINCIPLE OF DESIGNEXAMPLEDEFINITION Rhythm and movement visual flow through a work of art, using repetition Balance symmetry and asymmetry Proportion large next to small Variety the use of different or contrasting elements to add interest Emphasis used to make something stand out, like dark next to light Unity how all the aspects of a work of art work together
Interpretation of Art = main idea What Is the Artist Trying to Communicate? Can I express what I think the artwork is about in one sentence?
Judgement= Is It a Successful Artwork? Judging a piece of work means giving it rank in relation to other works and considering its originality. What do I think makes it a good artwork?
Directions for Marbling Technique Marbling Applications and Techniques EQUIPMENT NEEDED Containers and stirrers for paint. Combs with long prongs. Purchase or make by pushing T pins into a 1 " wide strip of corrugated cardboard and taping over their tops. The teeth should be evenly spaced and long enough to pierce the surface of the paint floating on the surface Eye Droppers : One for each color used. Pans: Cake pans, aluminum roasting pans or photographic trays that are 1-2" deep. Newspaper Strips cut 2" wide for skimming excess paint from the size after marbling. Wastebaskets next to the marbling area. Paper Towels for clean up. cardstock Liquitex Medium Viscosity Concentrated Artist Colors: They are recommended for marbling, as they are fluid and easily mix with water. Needs to be thin. All colors can be intermixed. The following colors have been found to work consistently: Burnt Sienna, Brilliant Yellow, Permanent Alizarine Crimson Hue, Phthalo Green, Ultramarine Blue, Titanium White, Dioxazine Purple, Prism Violet, Phthalo Blue, Cerulean Blue Hue, Turquoise Green, Bright Aqua Green, Permanent Green Deep, Chromium Oxide Green, Bright Yellow Green, Yellow Medium, Azo, Yellow Orange, Azo, Yellow Light Hansa, Yellow Oxide; Deep Magenta and Red Oxide. Liquitex Marble Ease: A medium that enables all Medium Viscosity Colors to spread rather than pool on the size surface. Size: A suspension mixture, which the paint floats on. Traditionally tragacanth or carrageenan, are added to water to thicken it. Blue Liquid starch or powdered laundry starch can also be used. Not all brands of liquid starch work.
Art Criticism: Describe what you see. (I see a bird’s head and beak.)
Directions for Bubbling Technique Instructions – Measure and pour 2 cups of Dawn Dishwashing Detergent and 1 cup of tempera into a bowl. – Mix the bubble solution and paint together with a spoon until they are thoroughly blended. Test the color of the solution by blowing a bubble on a piece of paper. Add more paint to deepen the color or more bubble solution to lighten it. – Pour the bubble solution into a rectangular pan and blow bubbles in the solution with a straw. Lay a piece of paper over the bubbles to make your print.
Art Criticism: Description –What Do You See? Use one table for the bubble blowing with one group of 4-5 students THE OTHER TABLES SHOULD BE BUSY LOOKING FOR FOUND OBJECTS! “I see a burro’s head.” “I found a crab.”
Bubbling Technique : What Do You See? “I see a stuffed bunny.”“I see a girl riding a duck.”
Directions for Straw Painting Now what do you see? Instructions – Drip a little watercolor paint, any color, on the paper. Use a teaspoon if it's easier. A bright primary color such as red, yellow or blue works well. – Drip your second color on another spot on the paper. Then dab your third on yet another spot. Take the straw and show your student how to blow a color so the paint spreads out, usually forming one or more thin lines across the paper. Do the same with the other colors. Materials Cardstock, straw (one per child), watercolor, brush to drip colors
Straw Painting Technique See what you can find in these paintings.
We searched and traced …didn’t have to worry about drawing… Then we cut out what we found…then we described, we analyzed, interpreted and judged… our collages!
