Prime Art What is the difference between a prime number and a composite number? What is on your card?? Let’s put the numbers where they go?
Now that the class work is done – let’s be creative !!!
Your mission today is to create an original piece of art using a Prime number. I know what you’re thinking WHAT!!!!
Let’s look at some art techniques that you can use on your project and some not so “good” pieces and then yours will look awesome.
Using different values ( shading) to define the number 8. By Sanchez
Notice how the value (darkness of the shading) gets more dramatic the darker it gets.
This number is outlined by stippling all around a traced number then erasing the outline. By Me Do not laugh - you might hurt the artist’s feeling and I might cry.
This is my favorite – stippling to define the number.
This artist is using stippling to do a self-portrait. WOW so many dots.
This number is slightly abstracted and is defined by the use of hatching and cross hatching. One type of hatching is definitely better than different types in the same art piece. At least I was willing to try to create. No -“I can’t do it” - for me.
Hatching and cross hatching examples. http://www.methart.com/tutorials/hatching.html http://www.methart.com/tutorials/hatching.html
Curvilinear and hatching are used in this picture. They did a better job than I could have ever done.
Using patterns to illustrate the number. I know I am not so good
Andy Warhol demonstrates patterns http://www.allposters.co m/-sp/One-Hundred- Cans-1962- Posters_i366916_.htm Web site for this art

Follow the directions or suffer the untamed voice of the Sanchezator !! Students select your numbers careful there might be more than numbers in there. Pick up a piece of card stock. Pick up rulers/pencils/pen.
It’s your time to select a number. Challenging or Safe Bet
