Art as a Way of Learning® Thinking with our Hands
Art as a Way of Learning® SHAPES SHAPE is the result of a line that travels back to its beginning. Shapes are two dimensional as in a drawing or painting and may be angular, circular, free-form, small, repeated, irregular, geometric, expressive, positive, negative, silhouette, or symbolic. Shape generally refers to a contour, the outer reference of a form. The contours of a good shape will have meaning, emphasis balance, and rhythm. Kenneth Bates Shapes jump out at me. Georgia OKeeffe
Art as a Way of Learning® LINES LINE is a mark or stroke long in proportion to its breadth. Lines can be straight, horizontal, vertical, long, short, thick, thin, diagonal, curving, smooth, broken, fuzzy, blurred, zigzag, outline, energetic, delicate, or strong. They depict energy, movement and connectivity in a work of art. Repeated lines can create patterns and textures. Lines can also create an illusion of three dimensional space or depth.
Art as a Way of Learning® The Learning Cycle PERCEPTION PRODUCTION CONSTRUCTION
Art as a Way of Learning® Landscapes oPerception - Look at a landscape print and identify what you see. Discuss each art elements: color, light, texture, shapes, lines. Which textured papers are similar to parts of the landscape? oConstruction - Explore a variety of lines (string, ribbons, pipe cleaners, etc.) to create or recreate various landscape designs. Compare and contrast various landscapes focusing on principles of visual organization. What mood or feelings do the different landscapes create? How does the artist move your eye through the landscape? How did the artist create a sense of place? oProduction - Use your knowledge of landscapes to create your own personal Escape. The medium is collage.
