1 AQA GCSE Art & Design Set Task (Exam) Development Work Planning PowerPointStarting Point 6: Close Up
2 How to use this PowerPoint Use this PP to plan and produce development work for your exam project.You can always access it via the art website:Green slides signal the start of a new stage in your planning or sketchbook
3 Planning stages (green slides) (Tip: Use these stages as titles in your sketchbook to help planning) ( You may decide to do some stages in a different order) (Think about how long each stage will take and plan your time carefully)AO3 - Brainstorm the starting pointAO1 – Artist and cultural investigationsAO3 - Early intentions and ideasAO3 - Primary & Secondary recordingAO1 – Investigations from other sourcesAO2 – Using materials to refine ideasAO4 – Final designAO4 – Final outcome (in 10 hour exam)
5 1. AO3 - Brainstorm the starting point CLOSE UPArtists are sometimes inspired by the idea of close up views of their subject. For example, the Boyle Family, Robert Cottingham, Alison Watt and the photographer Andreas Feininger have created unusual and sometimes abstract work from close – up views.Research appropriate sources and create your own responseProduce a brainstorm for the theme that uses word association to generate ideas.Use the images on the next slide to inspire you...(GRADE A / A*)A highly developed ability to fluently and skilfully record ideas and insights relevant to intentions(GRADE B)A consistent ability to skilfully record ideas and insights relevant to intentions(GRADE C)A generally consistent ability to effectively record ideas and insights relevant to intentions
7 2. AO1 - Artist investigations Investigate and analyse at least 2 of the artists given in the exam starting points.Use reliable internet sources and if possible books and other sourcesUse quality images, drawings and annotations using the 4 headings(GRADE A / A*)A confident and highly developed ability to demonstrate analytical and cultural understanding(GRADE B)A consistent ability to demonstrate analytical and cultural understanding(GRADE C)A generally consistent ability to demonstrate analytical and cultural understandingTOP TIP:Take care with presentation and the spelling, punctuation and grammar of written work.Use the annotation help sheets to extend your vocabulary
8 The Boyle Family http://www.boylefamily.co.uk/index.html Boyle Family is a group of collaborative artists based in London. They are perhaps most well known for their Earth studies.These pictures - highly accurate painted casts that operate somewhere between painting and sculpture - involve the meticulous re-creation of randomly chosen areas of the Earth's surface using resin and fibreglass (as well as real materials from the site)
9 Robert CottinghamRobert CottinghamRobert Cottingham is considered to be one of most important original Photorealist painters. Cottingham's work focuses on items associated as Americana. He studied art at Brooklyn's Pratt Institute
10 Alison Watt http://www.inglebygallery.com/artists/alison-watt/ Host oil on canvas 14ft x 10ftAlison Watt OBE is a Scottish painter, born in Greenock on 11 December Alison Watt graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 1988.Her first works to become well known were dryly painted figurative canvases, often female nudes, in light filled interiors.
11 Andreas FeiningerAndreas Bernhard Lyonel Feininger was a German American photographer, and writer on photographic techniqueHe is well known for his dynamic black-and-white scenes of Manhattan and studies of the structure of natural objects.
12 3. AO3 - Early intentions and ideas Choose an area of your brainstorm to focus on- Make written notes about your early intentions for the project and what you hope to achieve by the end. (This plan may change!)- Use the 4 headings and also include:Objects you want to record visuallyArtists and other sources you want to investigateCLOSE -UPTOP TIP:You could include some small thumbnail drawings to show your idea visuallyContentProcessMeaningPurpose
13 Suggested themes for Close up Cut open fruit and vegetablesClose ups of machinery and mechanical partsClose ups of musical instruments from strange anglesClose ups of leaves and natural forms
14 4. AO3 - Primary and Secondary Recording You must now find appropriate objects and items to record from. The main ways you will do this will be through observational drawing and photography.Record from primary sources first and move onto secondary sources if necessary…(GRADE A / A*)A highly developed ability to fluently and skilfully record observations relevant to intentions(GRADE B)A consistent ability to skilfully record observations relevant to intentions(GRADE C)A generally consistent ability to effectively record observations relevant to intentions
15 Observational drawing Success Criteria:Quality tonal shadingHigh contrastInteresting and unusual compositionsZooming in and cropping
16 Photography Success Criteria: Interesting and unusual compositions Appropriate themesZooming in and croppingPattern and texture
17 5. AO1 - Investigations from other sources You must extend your investigations by using other sources of informationThis could include other artists, a visit to a gallery or a local place of interest related to your themeRecord your investigations using photography, drawings, collected items and written notes.TOP TIP:Always refer to your intentions, state why you have investigated a source, how will it help with your final piece?
18 6. AO2 - Using materials to refine ideas (GRADE A / A*)A highly developed ability to thoughtfully refine ideas through purposeful and discriminating selection of appropriate materials and techniques(GRADE B)A consistent ability to thoughtfully refine ideas through purposeful selection of appropriate materials and techniques(GRADE C)A generally consistent ability to effectively refine ideas through experimenting and selecting appropriate materials and techniquesChoose appropriate materials to develop your ideasSee the next slide for ideas about materialsRe-visit and refine your experimental pieces up to the highest standard possible.TOP TIP:Use materials that you have used before and are confident with!Never spend more time writing about your practical work than doing it!
19 Using materialsThe list below shows what you should have covered in your GCSE ArtRemember to use materials that you are confident with already...2DPencilFineliner / PenCharcoal / PastelWatercoloursAcrylic PaintsCollagePolystyrene PrintingLino Printing3DCard ReliefWire / card sculptureClay slabClay coil / pinch potGlazing techniquesTOP TIP:The link below takes you to GCSE Bitesize and useful practical videos for 2D and 3D techniques
20 7. AO4 – Final DesignProduce a quality final design for your final pieceThis should be a refined drawing of how your 2D / 3D piece will lookMake notes using the 4 headingsTOP TIPS:Highlight how your final piece will realise your intentionsHighlight links and connections to artist work that you have looked at..(GRADE A / A*)A highly developed ability to present an imaginative, personal, informed and meaningful response when realising intentions.(GRADE B)A consistent ability to present an personal, informed and meaningful response when realising intentions.(GRADE C)A generally consistent ability to effectively present an personal, informed and meaningful response when realising intentions.CONTENTPROCESSMEANINGPURPOSEFinal Design
