10:00 - Hello, see what you have been working on etc.
SEEING THE SPACE AROUND AN OBJECT
Last week we saw shapes, this time we will start seeing the shapes that surround the ones we want to draw. Using tempera paint, we are going to paint what isn’t there – not what is.
10:10 – blind contour – just one for fun
10:40 - implying Shadow with a dry brush
11:10 – starting the paper construction for their paper Mache whales. (*By student request, we are going to start to learn paper Mache!
11:25 – clean up, wrap up – what is happening next week
11:30 – leave
For next week always bring along:
For next week - optional to bring along:
We are going to work in clay. Cloths that can get dirty, but everything will wash out. Student’s hands might get dry, so thinking about lotion for later in the day, I would personally recommend. Not dire though because this winter has not been as dry.
Optional Post to blog (option) or add to the course sketchbook. I will post information there and if interested the visual examples given to the students
• Outside of class: Seeking inspiration: Find 4- 6 + images of things that interest you visually. It can be art, objects, toys, clothing, colors etc.
• We are going to start making paper Mache whales. – So any work related to a whale of interest is a good idea.
• What would you like to make as a “functional” object out of ceramics
