Summit Hill Elementary Art EDventures “Colorful Rotations” 4 th Grade 360 Rotations/Perpendicular Lines Sonia Delaunay-Terk Brought to you by S.H.E. PTA
Meet Sonia Delaunay-Terk Sonia Delaunay-Terk is considered one of the most famous female painters in the 2-th Century (1900’s) She didn’t just paint fine portraits – she had a colorful career with all types of art forms from costume designs for the Russian Ballet to stained glass windows. She made fine art fashionable. The rich and famous of Europe loved her unique textile designs (designs for fabrics), custom clothes and chic fashion boutiques. “ We live our lives surrounded by objects, some hardly noticed. I design things to be noticed.” Nov. 14, 1885 – Dec. 5, 1979
What is a Pictograph? She was born Sarah Stern on Nov. 14, 1855 in the small town of Gradizhsk, Ukraine. Her dad worked in a nail factory and they were very poor. When she was five, her wealthy Uncle Henri and his wife adopted her and renamed her Sonia Terk. Her Uncle (new father) was a lawyer in St. Petersburg, Russia. He gave her a worldly education with trips throughout Europe where was exposed to art and culture. Bittersweet Fortune St Petersburg, Russia
Birth of a Style She was a star student and thought a career in math was in her future. However, when she was 16, she decided to pursue art. She studied drawing in Germany then landed in France to study painting. While in Paris, she met and married a famous and fellow painter, Robert Delauney. Together, they developed a style of art called Orphism. Orphism was exciting, new and very different. It was colorful, geometric, and not realistic like other paintings of that time. Can you see any math in their art? Sonia Delaunay Robert Delaunay
Colors of Russia The colors of the Russian peasant costumes and folk art from her childhood become the inspiration for much of her work. How are the Russian dolls and her paintings alike?
Rotations and Lines Can you see any perpendicular lines in her art? What types of mathematical rotations does she use? Abstract Composition The SingerEharpe Rythmes
Fine Art to Decorative Art While Sonia’s husband concentrated on painting, she applied her fine art talents to fashion (designing clothes) and textile design (fabrics). Silk, linen and fur became her new canvas. Her designs were applied to dresses, accessories, playing cards and more. She became well known for marrying fine art with decorative art. In Chaco Canyon, in what is now the state of New Mexico, there is an unusual Anasazi rock painting. "With red paint on the underside of a low overhang, a Chacoan artist depicted a sun, a crescent moon, and a star, signing his work with the hand print that marks a site as sacred in the Pueblo tradition. It's possible...that the Penasco Blanco painting represents the a.d supernova that resulted in the formation of the Crab Nebula. That supernova would have been visible in the American Southwest at the beginning of Chaco Canyon's peak period as a cultural center. The exploding star, which would have shone brightly enough to be visible during the day, would have appeared in conjunction with a waning crescent moon." Delaunay is known as the “inventor” of the polka dot!
From Canvas to Car! Even this Buggatti T35 became a decorative object for Delaunay in the 1930s. Now it’s a pricey collectors car. How is her fine art like this car? Can you find any 360 rotations?
From Canvas to Cotton Right Whale Flamed Box Crab She also created many textiles for famous designers like Chanel. They loved her “compositions: or groups of different designs that work together. For a textile project she would need to: Understand the use Create a color pallet Choose the repeat Decide on a type of fabric Understand production
From Canvas to Cards! Right Whale Flamed Box Crab Delaunay started designing a deck of cards in 1939 but was interrupted by WWII. She took refuge in the French countryside until the war ended and forgot about the project. Nearly 30 years later, the University of Belefeld hired her to complete her card deck designs in the late 1970s. This was the last project she finished before she died at age 85.
Awards All Around Right Whale Flamed Box Crab During her life, Sonia Delaunay received numerous awards for her art. One that was dear to her was the French Legion of Honor. She received it just before her death. This was a special award given out by the French government for giving so much wonderful art to France and the world. Now it’s time to try a textile design of your own using your math skills and the bright colors of Orphism.
Textile Talk Right Whale Red Branching Sponge Flamed Box Crab In the portfolio, there are several pieces of fabric. One is green and black and has 360 degree rotations in the design. Show the kids how patterns repeat on a piece of real fabric that they can touch and feel. The repeating pattern is marked with blue tape. (It is much smaller than you might think!) There is also a floral repeating pattern you can show the kids as well if you have time. The repeat on this piece is much larger than the geometric print.

Project Art EDventures Assignment The fashion industry has hired you to create a textile design for a new bedding line called “Colorful Rotations”. You are to use Sonia Delaunay-Trek’s work for inspiration. Practice Makes Perfect First you will need the following tools: Protractor, compass, pencil, ruler and box of crayons from “class kit”. Your Art Edventures Leader(s) will also give you a piece of paper. Please place it on your desk in the “landscape” position. Get out your compass. Set it to “2”. Now practice making 2 small circles with your compass so you get the feel using a new tool. Now set the compass to “5” and practice making one big circle. It’s ok if your circles are not perfect! Now pick up your protractor, your ruler and a pencil. Try making perpendicular lines with this tool. Use your protractor to check and see if you got your lines in a 90 degree angle. Write your name and “draw the paw” and flip your paper over to the blank side. Now you are ready to begin your design! Protractor/Perpendicular Lines Using your ruler, protractor and pencil, make a perpendicular line anywhere on the page. Make sure that your lines go off the edge. Compass / 360 degree rotations Get your compass. Anywhere on your page make three small circles (setting like 2 or 3) making complete 360 degree rotations. Try to keep all the small circles on the page. Make some overlap your lines. Now set your compass to “5” and repeat these steps but only make two rotations.
Project Art EDventures Now you choose any compass setting you want for the last rotation. If you go off the page, just continue your circle when you reach the paper again! Orange Slices = 180 Degree Rotations Now switch back to your protractor. Trace around the inside or outside to make 3 half circles or “orange slices”. You may overlap your other shapes.. Choose a Pallet Look in your crayon box and choose four colors to be your pallet for your design. New Shapes Look at all the new shapes you have created with your overlapping lines! Use your color pallet to color in your new shapes. Where the shapes overlap, use another color from your pallet. No touching shape should be the same color. (If you need to, you can add a fifh color). Let others know this is a PTA Art Edventures creation by adding a paw print.
Supply List Class kit should include: 25+ pieces of wet/dry media paper (one per student). Crayons or colored pencils (one box for each student). (Option – you can use fabric crayons as well and then transfer the design onto a pillow case with an iron.) Compasses – There are two types – “safety tip” and “regular tip”. The regular tip kind is very SHARP and stored covered with an eraser top on each compass. These are great because they don’t slip around like the safety tip kind. If you choose to use these please give the kids a safety lesson before distributing. Protractors Rulers Pencils (pre-sharpened with eraser tops).
G.P.S. Ties M4G1 Students will define and identify the characteristics of geometric figures through examination and construction. a)Examine and compare angles in order to classify and identify triangles by their angles. b)Describe paralle and perpendicular lines in plane geometric figures. c)Examine and classify quadrilaterals (including parallelograms, squares, rectangles, trapezoids and rhombi). d)Compare and contrast the relationships among quadrilaterals. M4M2 Students will understand the concept of angle and how to measure angles. a)Use tools, such as a protractor or angle ruler, and other methods, such as paper folding or drawing a diagonal in a square, to measure angles. b)Understand the meaning and measure of a half rotation (180 degrees) and a full rotation (360 degrees). *Art Edventures introduces the compass as tool for making full rotations.
Art EDventures Made possible with your donations to S.H.E.’s PTA Dear Mom, Dad or Caretaker, I went on a fun Art Edventure today and learned about a famous artist named Sonia Delaunay-Terk. She had a colorful career painting and designing all kinds of things from clothes to fancy Italian cars. It was cool looking at her art and trying to find math in it – like geometric shapes and rotations. WE also learned about her textile compositions. Then we used protractors and compasses to create a textile design inspired by her art. We included 360 and 180 degree rotations and perpendicular lines. Ask me about my “Colorful Rotations” creation!
