1 DRAW101 : DRAWING ESSENTIALS Lesson 01 Introduction/Benchmark

2 Welcome! I’m Mr. Chambers, and I’m thrilled that you’re in this class! I know you’re going to have fun and find this a great place to develop your art skills. I’ve designed the class to incorporate the things we’d enjoy if we all were meeting together at one of my workshops. Here’s this week’s agenda: Introduction to the class Tour of the classroom and website Understand class expectations and grading Enjoy a museum tour through the most amazing museum in the cosmos- the Blue Pluto Museum of Art, (BPMA, pronounced “Bip-ma”) …and I’ll give you (gasp!) your first assignment. Welcome! Assignment Studio Notes Lesson Museum Walk

3 Studio Notes I have been a professional artist since I completed school. I mainly paint portraits, though I really enjoy getting outdoors and painting landscapes, too. Each week we’ll do a studio visit so you can get a glimpse of what a professional artist does. It’s an exciting life, and I love it. I have painted portraits all over the country for almost twenty years. I’ve met a lot of interesting people, and love capturing them on canvas. Here is a portrait of a young boy with his friend George, from Chattanooga, TN.

4 This is a close-up of the portrait. I painted it in pastel on linen canvas.

5 I enjoy getting to know the people I am painting. This portrait is a favorite of mine because it shows the love the girls have for their mom. This portrait is painted in oil on linen. Studio Note

6 A close-up of the girls…

7 This portrait was a lot of fun to paint…on the beach! It is big- 60” tall by 44” wide, oil on linen canvas. I love to travel, see new places, meet new people. Painting allows me to do that often. It is very rewarding to be able to create something that means so much to other people. A good portrait is like giving someone an afternoon of wonderful conversation, along with a lifetime of memories.

8 This was a lot of fun to paint…on the beach! It is big- 60” tall by 44” wide. Oil on linen.

9 Here’s one of three kids from a family in Maryland. This one was painting in pastel, on linen canvas. It’s about 24” wide by 36” high.

10 I also enjoy good humor, so you’ll see a funny comic in each class. Feel free to send me your favorites comics and I will include them in future classes.

Inappropriate words (or abbreviations for those words) is not acceptable. Focus! During class, you should be paying attention. Students behaving inappropriately are subject to parents being contacted and possible dismissal from the class.

23 Let’s make an effort, in our hearts and minds, to be considerate of one another in this class. I value each one of you, and will be praying for each of you throughout the semester, that you each would glorify Christ by delighting in Him and what He’s given you to do. Follow the guideline of Philippians 4:8 and Romans 12:10: "Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable— if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things" and "Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves." If we heed these words, this class will be a delightful place for all of us!

24 Don’t want to scare you, but… ANNOUNCEMENT! All assignments MUST be handed in on time to receive a grade and a critique. The only exception is if your parent has arranged ahead of time for a later hand-in date. Let me know if you have any questions about this.

25 The Student Lounge Supposedly, there’s a virtual student lounge available for students to relax in after class. Sit back in the overstuffed furniture, enjoy the plethora of snacks, fountains stocking every drink you can imagine, listen to music, enjoy wifi…just chill with your classmates. It’s located down the hall, just past the Creative Writing department, right before Graphics on the right. Have fun! IGUANA ACADEMY STUDENT LOUNGE

32 Grading Grading for the Art Class is pretty straightforward: 90% - 100% = A (exemplary effort, achieved assignment goal) 80% - 89% = B (great effort, almost achieved assignment goal) 70% - 79% = C (average effort, some evidence of assignment goal) 60% - 69% = D (questionable effort, some evidence of assignment goal) 59% or less = F (assignment not turned in) Questions? Chat-n-Ding! Art Assignment grading Your assignment grade will consist of: your application of the principles taught in class effort to do the assignment well completion of the assignment as assigned completion of the work I will not count the two lowest assignment grades towards your final grade. I know not every piece turns out great (believe me, I know!). Just do you best, and please- have fun! Class Participation grading I want you each to be involved in the classes. This includes: showing up (whenever you’re able) participating in the assignment reviews asking questions, giving answers in chat window Missing a Class If you must miss a class (travel, family plans, illness), just give me a heads’ up by sending me an . That way I’ll know you’re fine, or can pray for you if you’re ill or have an event, and will not penalize you for a late assignment. ☺

33 Museum walk Each week we’ll enjoy some great examples of art throughout the ages. You’ll appreciate more and more what artists before you have done as you learn the same skills in class. Let’s take a quick tour at BPMA (Blue Pluto Museum of Art) and see what they’ve got in store for us this week!

34 No, this is not a self-portrait! It’s actually a painting by Arcimboldo, Giuseppe of Emperor Rudolf II as Vertumnus in 1591!

35 We can have a lot of fun looking at what other artists did. Every artist, just like you, is unique and sees the world in a unique, even humorous, way. I’m looking forward to seeing what you can do. I want to give you the tools so that you can better express what you see. Just like learning language, the more words you know, the better you understand grammar, the better you’ll be able to say (or draw!) what you want to say. Interesting, eh?

36 Everyone knows of Leonardo DaVinci’s wonderful portrait of Mona Lisa. Do you know when Leonardo painted it?

37 Everyone knows of Leonardo DaVinci’s wonderful portrait of Mona Lisa. Do you know when Leonardo painted it? A: approximately Wow- 600 years ago!

38 Some artists have had a little fun with this painting…

43 Portraits are great records of both individuals and history. This is Gilbert Stuart’s portrait of George Washington.

44 Frederick Remington painted the American Cowboy as Americans explored the West in the 1800’s.

45 Frans Cuyck van Myerop painted this very detailed still-life Trope L'Oil w Dead Birds a few hundred years ago in 1689

46 Hokusai, the Japanese painter, painted The Great Wave, showing Mt. Fuji in the background in the 1830’s.

47 In the 1870’s, Claude Monet, from France, brought in a new way of looking and painting with his colorful landscapes. He did a lot of paintings of haystacks to study the color changes in daylight.

48 So, what about you and me? What kind of work will we produce? This class just might inspire you to create your own masterpiece!

49 First Assignment (two parts): AS1a: lookin’ good! AS1b: benchmark

50 You never get a second chance to make a good first impression. - Will Rogers Assignment AS1a: lookin’ good!

51 Your first assignment will ensure you make a good impression with your work throughout this course. For artists, a good impression can make all the difference. That’s why selecting the right frame is so important. It can make a painting look great… or look awful! When showing your work as a photo, such as you will for this course, it’s important to make sure your photo looks as good as your actual piece of art. This semester, show your work to look its best by making sure you do a good job with your photograph of the image. Today’s lesson will show you how. First I’ll reveal the assignment, then the lesson on how to do the assignment. You never get a second chance to make a good first impression. - Will Rogers Assignment AS1a: lookin’ good!

52 Goal: To be able to edit your images to look their best. Materials needed: computer w internet connection, assignment images (provided) AS1 Guidelines: 1. Download the file “ AS1-EDIT-THIS-IMAGE.jpg ” in the assignment. 2. Watch the video “How to Edit Your Images Using PicMonkey” (on the class homepage>FAQs>Art Assignments) 3. Go to 4. Edit your image so it looks like the image “ AS1-REFERENCE- IMAGE.jpg ” (also attached to the assignment).

Save your edited PicMonkey image exactly as “ FirstName- LastName,AS1 ” (e.g. “ Tim-Chambers,AS1 ”) 6. Hand in at dropbox by Sunday at 11pm. …after editing This assignment is simple but important for all your other assignments for this class.
