The Assignment You will create a design for the cover of a storage folder made from folding a large sheet of paper. The cover design will be based using an initial from Your first/last name. You will use techniques of symmography (connecting 2 points with line forming shapes). The design maybe enhanced with colored pencil or crayons.
Symmography is a type art that is characteried by an arrangement of line that extend from points to form abstract geometric patterns.
Though straight lines are formed by the string, the slightly different angles and metric positions at which strings intersect may give the appearance of Bézier curves A Bézier curve is a parametric curve frequently used in computer graphics and related fields. Bézier curves are used to model smooth curves that can be scaled indefinitely. "Paths," as they are commonly referred to in image manipulation programs, Bézier curves were widely publicized in 1962 by the French engineer Pierre Bézier, who used them to design automobile bodies at Renault.Bézier curvesparametric curvecomputer graphicsFrenchPierre BézierautomobileRenault What can you do with a Graph and Grids?
Charles Demuth Charles Demuth (November 8, 1883 – October 23, 1935) was an American painter, developing a style of painting known as Precisionism. Precisionism took for its main themes industrialization and the modernization of the American landscape, the structures of which were depicted in precise, sharply defined geometrical forms.
Paul Klee December 1879 – 29 June 1940) was a painter born in Switzerland, and is considered to be a German-Swiss. His highly individual style was influenced by movements in art that included expressionism,cubism, and surrealism.expressionismcubismsurrealism
Making You Own Designs. Working from these basic shapes, you can experiment on paper and make up your own designs. Draw out your patterns full size on graph paper using a dot to represent each position. Then join up the dots with pencil lines to obtain an idea of the finished result. Lets try one of the simple ones first.
Curve from straight lines: Two lines, drawn at 90° to each other, are divided up equally into a number of points, in this case eleven in each. By drawing a line from Al to Bl, A2 to B2, A3 to B3 etc a curve will be formed. The closer the dots are brought together, the smoother the curve will be. Exactly the same effect can be achieved with nails and yarn, each dot representing the nail and the line representing the yarn.
Cross from four lines: One angle is taken a step further, with four lines at right angles to each other forming a cross. Providing that there are the same numbers of dots in each line, the curve can be achieved. With the nails in position, thread this design with a single piece of yarn starting at position Al, taking the yarn round Bl and Cl, and continuing in numerical order until all the pins are engaged with yarn.
