Please keep all of your products/art outcomes to share with me via Google docs.  

UPDATE:  May 18  for ALL COURSES spanning May 18-26.

This update is for Art 7, Art 1, Art 2, and Independent Art!  

As we head into the final few days of the school year, this is everyone's opportunity, regardless of the Art Course you are enrolled in, to make up ONE ZERO OR to improve one incomplete grade.  For those of you who have been submitting your projects throughout, CONGRATS because you are done!  You should be rewarded for having been responsible and budgeting your time.  So, if you are uncertain what you still must submit, please check PowerSchool.  If there is a zero, you did not submit anything during that time period.  If there is a grade, I would have sent you an email following your submission to explain what you still needed to do to complete the assignment.  Please email me if you are not certain what projects you did not submit.  ALL submissions are due to me by Tuesday, May 26.  You may submit the actual projects to the school OR you may (as always) send a Google Doc to my email.  PLEASE include the images you used for reference as well as a photo of the project partially completed, as well as a photo of the completed project (with YOU in the photo) and any follow up questions or paragraph that may have been part of the assignment you are submitting.  

 

 

UPDATE:  May 4

Here you will find the assignments for "Weeks 7 & 8" that span May 4-15.

***As for your previous submissions, please submit your project in a Google Doc. showing the process (beginnning, middle, and end). Please remember to include YOURSELF in the photo with the finished piece of art.

 

7th Grade:  "Weeks 7 & 8" spanning May 4-15

Continuing our exploration of color one step further, we will be creating an original pet portrait or animal portrait in the style of Dean Russo.

Watch the following YouTube video showing Dean Russo at work.

 

Dean Russo creates a lot of animal (pet) portraits.  They use color in a creative way.  When color is used creatively, it often expresses moods and emothions, because the color is not what we would normally see.  It is "Arbitrary Color" rather than "Optical Color."  Optical Color is realistic color.  Arbitrary Color is emotional and expressive.  It is playful.  Look at the example of Dean Russo's work below.

 

 Dean Russo Dog is Love Journal: Lined Journal (Quiet Fox Designs ...

 Do you feel the dog's personality and energy?  If you Google search Dean Russo's art you will discover MANY examples just like this one, but all uniquely delightful.

7th graders, for this assignment, please take a photo of your pet and save it to a Google Doc to be submitted with your artwork.  I want to see what your pet looks like.  If you do not have a pet, select one you would LIKE to have.  

Using whatever materials you have (you see how many materials Dean Russo uses) create a boldly colorful portrait of your pet in the style of Dean Russo.  This means that you should try to capture your pet's personality and energy.  Use bold lines, and patterns, and colors!!!  This MUST be original, so while you might look at Dean Russo's work for inspiration, please do not copy his pieces.

This is the ONLY assignment for Weeks 7 & 8.

So, what should you submit by May 15?  

1.  The photo/realistic image of your pet or desired pet.

2.  The photo of your project while in progress.

3.  The photo of your completed project WITH YOU IN IT.  

4.  Please write a paragraph describing your pet's personality and energy, and explain what colors/lines/patterns you felt were appropriate choices, and why.  This way I will understand what your goals were and how you went about trying to accomplish them.  I can't wait to see your outcomes!!!  

 

 

 

ART I Elective:  "Weeks 7 & 8" that span May 4-15.

We are continuing our sketchbook entries for the next 2 weeks.  During this time, you should submit the next four sketches.  I have listed them here in case you lost track.

 I do not expect cartoons.  You should be developing your drawing skills as the sketchbook assignment document states.  Please create strong compositions, and practice your shading.  Remember that you can create focal points by completing some objects in each sketch more than others, and by varying the sizes of the objects.  Practice creating depth as well. There are no additional project assignments during this two-week span of time.  In order to submit your sketchbook entries, please photograph each completed sketch and send them to your own school email address so that you can upload them into a Google Doc.  Please send the Google Doc of your 4 sketches to my school email by Friday, May15.  My school email is mhutton@pasdedu.org.

Sketchbook entry #15:  Textural objects.  Objects with textures are NOT smooth, so they create a challenge figuring out how to depict the surfaces.  Animals are good choices as well as heavy twine, peeling paint (weathered objects).  

Sketchbook entry #16: Artist's Choice.  You know the routine for this one!  Have fun!

Sketchbook entry #17:  Self-Portrait.  A self-portrait is YOUR face.  You could work from a fun selfie to make it modern, or you could work from your school photo.  Be sure to do some shading!  

Sketchbook entry #18:  Interior.  Choose a room, hallway, or stairway in your home, and create believable depth by drawing it using the rules of perspective (we learned them in 7th grade).  Remember to make things smaller and less detailed as they get further away.

7th Grade:  "Weeks 5 & 6" spanning April 20-May 1

We are continuing our exploration of color schemes, introduced last week.

Please look at the following design by Kandinsky.  It is created from LINE and SHAPE (Elements of Art we have already studied) and organized (with purpose in placement, not random) to create an interesting piece of art that moves our eyes through the composition.  Kandinsky is a master of design, focusing on the Elements of Line and Shape.  Can you imagine this piece withough the background lines that direct our eyes into the corners of the composition?  (Our eyes would be held "prisoner" within the circle.)  Can you notice how he made those background colors DULLER so they recede into the background (a concept introduced while we were studying one-point linear perspective)?  If those wide background lines were BRIGHT they would command too much attention as well as leaping into the foreground, competing with the design within the circle.  Notice how many diagonals Kandinsky used.  Remember that diagonals are "moving" lines whereas horizontal and vertical are "static" lines. Notice, also, how he organized the lines into sets of parallel lines.  What part of the design is your eye drawn to?  My eyes travel to the yellow-orange interior circle that is surrounded by a black outline and contains a perfectly centered black dot.  Perhaps my eyes travel here because of the strong contrast, maybe because I love yellow.  Please notice how playfully Kandinsky treats his colors.  The shapes seem to be transparent so when they overlap other shapes, new colors are created that appear to be the mixture of the two overlapping colors.  

You can see how much thought went into creating this design.  

 

 Wassily Kandinsky, Circles in a Circle, 1923

The 7th Grade assignment for Weeks 5 & 6 is to create an orginal interesting design using LINES and SHAPES.  This may take trial and error.  Do not make it too simple or repetitive because that will result in a boring outcome.  Consider what makes a design interesting:  pattern?  order?  variety of size and idea?  The shapes you use can be real, geometric, or invented/imaginary.

1.  Use whatever size paper you have available.  

2. Create an interesting design using LINE & SHAPE. 

3. Make an exact copy of your interesting design on another piece of paper, either by tracing your work through a well lit window, or by transferring it (like we did in class).

4.  With whatever materials you have available, use one of the following color schemes on each of the two designs:

A. Complementary (including lighter and darker values of the set of opposites.)

B. Analogous (you may have to mix the intermediate colors and may also use lighter and darker values.

C. Cool Colors (you may have to mix the intermediate colors and may also use lighter and darker values.

D. Warm Colors (you may have to mix the intermediate colors and may also use lighter and darker values.)

Please keep in mind that Kandinsky did NOT use a color scheme.  I posted it as a great example of a well-organized LINE and SHAPE design.

Look at the following examples of Designs using real shapes.  Can you imagine these beautiful peacock feathers presented only in the cool colors in the first design, and then in Complementary colors in the second?  Each would be tremendously successful.

 

Custom Peacock Feather Canvas Print 16" x 12" Inch, Stretched and Framed Artwork Decor Wall Living room Office Art Abstract Peacock Feather Oil Paintings Picture Canvas Print Home Decor

Look at this design of Koi fish, done using a Complementary Color Scheme.  Could you create something like this?  Of course!  It uses real shapes in an organized manner, completed with an interesting pattern in the background.  Can you imagine the second copy being completed in Warm Colors?  Of course!  Water does not have to be blue, and water refracts colors and light, so the warm colors of the koi could diffuse throughout the background composition.

 Koi Carp Japanese Symbol Of Luck Digital Art by Macrovector

5. As you add color to your designs, please vary the INTENSITY of the color (like Kandinsky did) by making foreground colors brighter and background colors duller.  Be as neat and decorative as you like.

When you complete your colorful LINE/SHAPE designs, please reflect on the following.  A simple paragraph in your Google Doc will be perfect.  

a.  Do the 2 different color schemes create a pleasing set of designs, or is one more successful than the other?  Why?

b.  If you could redo this project, how would you approach it differently?  (In the design stage?  In the Color stage?  Idea?)

c.  Where would this type of design be most enjoyable on display?  (In your home, in which room/space?  In public?)

PLEASE submit your Google doc.  (See *** at the beginning) to my email:  mhutton@pasdedu.org by May 1.

 

ART I:  "Weeks 5 & 6" spanning April 20-May 1

IF we were in the actual classroom we would be completing this new assignment on a Ceramic plate.  Perhaps you remember seeing examples in the Showcase every semester.  I have adapted that project in Rotational Symmetry to paper by creating a MANDALA.  

Many of you were introduced to MANDALA design in the 8th grade elective class, but we used dots.  In THIS mandala you should use LINES and SHAPES.  

Please scroll down to the March 19 update where I posted a YouTube video about Mandala design.  I have viewed MANY videos trying to select one that is direct and simple to help you get started.  Of course, you may continue to watch other YouTube videos for ideas and motivation.  If you visit Google Images you will discover many beautiful ideas for motivation and inspiration.

1. You may work on whatever surface you have available:  paper, cardboard, canvas, wood.... 

2. Be neat and creative.  You should be creating an ORIGINAL, not copying one.

3. Creating a mandala is soulful, but requires patience because it is repetitive.  Your design should not be too simplistic because that results in a borin outcome.

4. Add color if it is available.  You will see many examples completed in color.  If you do not have color available, you may work in black and white, but add graytones or textures for variety. 

5.  ***When your project is complete, please send me a Google Doc depicting the beginning, middle, and end of the project.  Be sure to include yourself in the image of the finished Mandala.***  Send your document to my email: mhutton@pasdedu.org.

Monday, April 6 through Friday, April 17 ("Weeks 3 & 4")

Students will find updates here for your assignments for your "At Home Portfolios" according to course.  We have now resumed teaching our curriculums, so please pay attention to the assignments.  Also, please reach out to me with questions.  

7th Grade Art:  ("Weeks 3 & 4" spanning April 6-17) Please see the example (the following image) that I created for you at home. The topic assigned deals with the Color Wheel and Color Schemes.  IF you have materials, you may create your own color wheel, but if you do not have art materials, you may create a "Found Object Color Wheel" like I have done in the example.  

The Color Wheel displays the spectal order of colors, bent into a circle.  You may recall the large one displayed in my classroom.  Your color wheel should include all 12 colors, in the correct order:

Red (Red rooster dog toy), Red-Orange (coffee tumbler), Orange (Elk Lick plasticware & pumpkin), Yellow-Orange (the orange behind a fox dog toy), Yellow (Lysol wipes), Yellow-Green (t-shirt and bracelet), Green (Christmas gift pouch), Blue-Green (large mug with lanyard inside), Blue (Clorox spray on small book), Blue-Violet (metronome and neck scarf), Violet (shirt and Easter egg), and Red-Violet (large Christmas gift bag).

My biggest challenge was finding Blue-Violet.  Look through colorful clothing, books, and packaging.  Do NOT use art materials like crayons or colored pencils as your found objects.  (That is too easy!)  You may refer to them for accurate colors, however.  

Once you have organized your "Found Object Color Wheel" take a photo, then send it to your school email so you can access it to put into a Google Doc.  

You're not quite done, yet, 7th grade, because this assignment spans two weeks, so the rest continues after the image:

 

Okay, here is the remainder of your assignment:  

Continuing in your Google Doc, identify items from your color wheel that are examples of the following color schemes:

1. Analogous:  (Three colors in order on the color wheel.)  An example of mine would be the Yellow-Orange fox, the Yellow Lysol Wipes, and the Yellow-Green t-shirt.  (All contain Yellow.)

2. Complementary:  (Colors located opposite on the color wheel.)  An example of mine is the Red rooster dog toy, and the Green Christmas gift pouch.  

3. Warm colors: (Colors we perceive in nature as being warm like fire and the sun.)  List the items you chose for Red through Yellow.

4. Cool colors: (Colors we perceive in nature as being cool like cool morning grass and streams.) List the items you chose for Green through Violet.

Lastly, please identify these color sets:

5. Primary Colors:  (List the items you chose for Red, Yellow, and Blue)

6. Secondary Colors: (Identify the items you chose for Orange, Green, and Violet)

7. Intermediate Colors: (Identify the items you selected to represent Red-Orange, Yellow-Orange, Yellow-Green, Blue-Green, Blue-Violet, Red-Violet.

Please submit your Google doc to my email by Friday, April 17.  My email is mhutton@pasdedu.org.

 

ART 1 ELECTIVE:  ("Weeks 3 & 4" spanning April 6-17) I have updated the Sketchbook topics in PowerSchool.  If you have been working in your Sketchbook as I had suggested over the past two weeks, you are way ahead of the game!  If you have not, you should complete and submit the first 4 Sketchbook entries to me by Friday, April 17.  I do not expect cartoons.  You should be developing your drawing skills as the sketchbook assignment document states.  Please create strong compositions, and practice your shading.  Remember that you can create focal points by completing some objects in each sketch more than others, and by varying the sizes of the objects.  Practice creating depth as well. There are no additional project assignments during this two-week span of time.  In order to submit your sketchbook entries, please photograph each completed sketch and send them to your own school email address so that you can upload them into a Google Doc.  Please send the Google Doc of your 4 sketches to my school email by Friday, April 17.  My school email is mhutton@pasdedu.org.

Here is another idea for those of you stuck on how to be creative:  with Easter weekend on the horizon, DECORATE eggs!!!  Share your results with me in a Google Doc to my email.  Be as creative as possible!  :D  Be certain you are in your photos showing the process and the outcome.  

 

4/2/2020  

We've all made it to April!  It is beautiful outside and the Earth is awakening from it's slumber. My UPDATE today is to ask you all to stay alert to deadlines in Powerschool.  What you have accomplished during the first 2 weeks of the "shutdown" will be graded after Easter, so if you haven't made time to be CREATIVE, time is running out.  Whenever you'd like to share your At-Home Portfolio with me (the art you've done) you may send me your Google doc.  I will put give you credit within 24 hours.  

I have also posted a deadline for your At-Home Portfolio art created during weeks 3 and 4 (second half of April).  I have been posted new links for inspiration for those of you who don't generate your own ideas.  I will contine to do so, as well as expanding my At-Home portfolio document with Round 2 of ideas next week. 

Please spread the word to your friends.  Please email me any questions you have.

Stay safe and stay healthy!

UPDATED 3/25/2020

This is such a fun video!  Can you imagine doing this with jellybeans?  (Hint, hint...)  It has an art history connection to Pointillism.  Enjoy!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f4QjNHzQiKQ

This is another one of my favorites!  Collage art is SO trendy!  If you have access to a photocopier at home, copy some money and try it!  Dilute Elmer's Glue or use Mod Podge.

UPDATE posted 3/19/2020 

Firstly, I need to share that although we are only a few days into this interruption of normalcy, I miss my energetic classes SO much!  I am spending hours each day scouring the internet for inspirational ideas to pass onto all of you!

Since I posted so many resources yesterday, I would ask that you all continue to explore those sites, especially to link about Mandalas.  I think we all need an outlet at this time to release some of our stress and anxiety.  Mandalas are one of the most peaceful forms of art that I know.  These can be created with any materials and on any surface. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pejqo_iQhCk  This is an enjoyable link that is a Mandala Tutorial.  YouTube has MANY but this one will get you started.

As I always remind you daily, please spend 20-30 minutes exploring and creating art.  When we reconvene we will share our experiences and knowledge, and present what we've learned in a variety of ways including sharing our project outcomes, journals about our new knowledge, posters or displays of processes or techniques or favorite new artists we've discovered.  The internet allows us to access the WORLD so please explore the Art World!  I hope you all discover new interests and realize how much FUN learning can be! 

 

 

UPDATE posted 3/18/2020

Please scroll down for yesterday's message.

Today I am posting some great resources that will allow everyone Creative inspiration and outlets during this time of anxiety.  They range from Museum Tours to Art Games & Activities to National Park sites and NASA images.  In the future these sites may be used for project ideas or journaling as details unfold from the State of PA.  We continue to be in limbo and will pass on information as we learn it.

UPDATE posted 3/17/2020

 

During this time in which PA Public Schools are shut down, I encourage everyone to spend 20 to 30 minutes each day being CREATIVE!  I will be listing ideas and resources in coming days.  

Please know that details are not known at this time, but will be emerging and be shared when I am able.  As for now, I have taken my semester course offline until we know something further.

Creativity is a GIFT in anxious, stressful times.  Being creative allows us to visit a more soulful place to make our world more beautiful.  And, who doesn't need that? 

Whatever materials you have available to you, please enjoy them!  Please don't hesitate to reach out to me via my school email:  mhutton@pasdedu.org or phone number: 814-642-2544, ext 4117.
