Lyracism: Art 2 Lyracism f2010.doc

 

WEEK February 22-March 4

Much sickness has been experienced during this period of time. Students are beginning to return to school and finalize missed and late projects. Progress reports were to go out during this time, however with the poor attendance and straggling assignments those have been postponed in this class until March 1-4.  Our enlargement painting unit will be complete the this week and all grading should be on target for this week giving a better view of student progress at this time. Reports went home Monday, February 28.

 

WEEK February 14-18

Our week dawns with the celebration of Valentines Day. One of the most expensive days of the year. Our class is very active in production of an enlarged photo and painting project. I am very impressed with the progress and the depth of work.

 

Saint Valentine

Saint Valentine was a catholic priest who got caught marrying people, so the story goes. He was thrown into jail and tried to show the Roman emperor Claudius II the ways of the Lord. In response he had his head chopped off on February 14th in 269 AD. He’s considered a martyr.  

He is the Patron Saint of affianced couples, bee keepers, engaged couples, epilepsy, fainting, greetings, happy marriages, love, lovers, plague, travelers, and young people. He is often pictured with birds and roses.

 

WEEK February 7-11

Painting was such fun we decided to stay in paint for a while. Our class discussed the need to develop more skill in color mixing and many expressed a desire to do another photo enlargement project. So, we boldly go. With a two week deadline and a pocket full of hope students will be expected to bring in a color photo for the purpose of enlarging and painting. We will attempt to finish this with critique on Feb 23rd.

The work should be no less than 12 x 12.

 

WEEK January 31- February 4

Students will finalize the color wheel project and present this to the class. Many of the works are outstanding. Intorduction to a Feldman Class model of art criticism- will establish the way in which work is criticised for this course and all future art courses.

Feldman Model of Art Criticism  http://www.spsu.edu/htc/bseabolt/2001/feldmansmethod.pdf

 

 

WEEK January 25- 28

First week of new semester. This class hit the ground running in Art. The project this week was to mix colors. The group made a color wheel by creating a symbol then arranging the symbols in a circle. Students are encouraged to use complimentary colors and complex arrangements for their color use. The project is due on Wednesday Feb 2 with full critique in a classroom forum. Use of Feldman's model of Art criticism will set the tone of the semesters work. See Feldman's Model above. Students are reminded that their contracts and supplies are due Feb 1.

 

My name is Travis Gentry and it is quite an honor to return to my home school to teach you art. This week will focus us on the rules, procedures and working environment of the Art Room. We will focus on getting to know one another better and how the projects will preceed for the semester. The Art Department has a contract between the three of us, you, your parents and myself that must be completed and returned. I also have a supplies list of items you will need for this class.

Fall Semester 2010 Ends

 

WEEK December 12-20 

More clay projects and much fun to be had in Art class this week. As we lead into the holiday time away, it is now that proper care for our clay objects becomes very important. We have begun the process of air drying our first two projects, the rattle and the mug. Most students are in the process of drying these projects properly by sitting them on the window sills. These will be ready to fire on the week we return in January. Most are currently nearing the bone dry stage this week, so we should be safe to fire. Our week will end with a clay test. Students are reminded to use the clay study guide and look carefully at the vocabulary list posted in the art room, which has been there for 3 weeks!

Again: Clay Vocabulary Study Guide- b.doc

 

WEEK November 22- December 9

We will be engaged in 3D work through the use of clay. Our efforts will revolve around several exciting projects that teach the principals of texture, line, shape and form. We will make lots of things to include: Clay rattles, whistle or ocarina, and a personal project called a "Prickly Seed Reliquary". Students will learn the proper method of storage, drying, kiln firing, burnishing, clean up and care for ceramic items.

 

Clay Assignments: December 1-17, 2010 We will fry these projects over the Christmas Holiday Break.

Art 2 Lyracism f2010.doc  

 

WEEK September 20-24, 2010

Our class developed new ideas and directions from the mid-project critique and we will continue to focus on those changes and how they affect their work. We will finalze this Lyracism Project on Thursday, September 23 and will prepare to do the critique on Monday and Tuesday 9/27 & 9/28. A sign up sheet for food will be passed around for this, so students are requested to sign up for the critique.

 

WEEK September 13-17, 2010

We will continue to work on the Lyracism Project. Drawing a song takes time and concentration. We will have a mid-project critique and express views and ideas in an open forum this week. Designed to glean good idea from all those who participate, everyone is encouraged to be part of the event that builds a class of artwork, one project at a time. Projects are due Thursday, September 23 with critiques on Monday, September 27 and Tuesday, September 28.  

 

WEEK Sept. 7-Sept. 10, 2010

This week in art we present our My Summer Poster Projects. Our Art history will cover week 2. The sketchbook from last week will be due by Wednesday, and this weeks sketchbook will still be due this Friday. We start a new project this week called Lyracism.  Students are allowed to bring their ipods and ear phones to class. We will make a class CD for listening once this project has eneded, however the use of personal ipods will end in my class when this project ends in two weeks. I expect best work from this effort.

Art 2 Lyracism f2010.doc

 

WEEK August 30- Sept 3, 2010

Our second week of school is off to a good start. Students learned to draw in some non-conventional ways last week with the use of blind contour and the 5 perceptual drawing skills as outlined by Betty Edwards. A still life was established for Art 1 students to get more in tune with the use of these perception skills. Art 2 created drawings from an upside down perspective including line art works by famous artists as well as a group draw of flowers. This week in Art we will delve into the aesthetic qualities of a work of art and discover more of what art is as we strive to answer these two questions: "If the answer is Art; then what is the question? What is the difference between to look and to see?"

 

WEEK August 24-27, 2010

Welcome Art 2 Students to the Visual Arts Department. My name is Travis Gentry and it is quite an honor to return to my home school to teach you art. This week will focus us on the rules, procedures and working environment of the Art Room. We will focus on getting to know one another better and how the projects will preceed for the semester.

Week February 21-26, 2010

Our week features the start of a new assignment. Lyracism has to do with a song or songs you connect with as a human. The songs tend to describe your overall mood, direction and style. This song(s) meaning in your life is an occasion to find inspiration to create an artwork that will show the world what you feel through "your" music. In this assignment and for this time frame only, I will allow students to bring and listen to their ipods in class. This project will last two weeks and will end March 5th. Our art history is very exciting for this timeframe. We examined Early Middle Age Art, Mesoamerican art, Romanesque art, Gothic, Buddist 7 Hindu developments in East Asia. Our focus is covering a large area of the world. Our next historical adventure starts the rise of individual contributions to the art world.

HA Schult " Trash People"

   

 

Van Gogh Art Criticism 

     

WEEK February 15-19, 2010 This week in Art we begin work on our Trash man Sculpture. We will emulate the style of artist HA Schult as we create a very interesting work designed to promote the recycling effort in our community. We will further discuss art with a purpose and the overall meaning in artwork. Students are asked to bring in materials to use with the sculpture. We will work on Feldman's Art Criticism model. To gain practice with the model we will learn more about one artist. The life of Vincent van Gogh. We will view the movie Vincent and Theo and have a roundtable discussion concerning the movie and what kinds of things happened in Vincent's life. We will also read the article Painting Emotions, which features the style of van Gogh and his role in the art world. To better prepare for a good critique at the end of the week students will engage in an exchange of question and answers concerning seven (7) specific works from van Gogh.

WEEK February 1-12, 2010

This period fo time featured only 5 school days due to snow, ice and high winds. Our Art history for this period of time covered many topics, including: Etruscan, Chinese Neolithic, South Asia, Indus Valley, Ancient Rome, Early Christian, Byzantine and Buddist Art 700 BC to 550 AD, give or take a few hundred years... Students are gaining visual literacy through the use of the internet to research images of artwork. Up until this point in history the artwork has be devoid of actual artist identity. Next week we start applying artist names to specific works.

WEEK January 25-29, 2010

This week features drawing someone else from the inside out. We have examined emotion, perception and reality as a topic. Our discussions have lead us to try to get to know people beyond the surface and not to judge a book by it's cover. Several people have shared personal stories about how they have been judged or perceived by others and how it hurt them. We have all seen how perception can be far from the truth. It is the artists eye that can see the inner person and attempt to communicate this inner image into a visual for all to see. Student will interview a classmate that they do not really know very well and attempt to share the inner beauty of that person. This week in Art History we focus on Aegean and Ancient Greece.

WEEK January 19-22, 2010

A short week filled with many new ideas awaits us. We will examine the concept of preception versus reality. Students will complete a learner profile to help them determine more about their own individual style of learning. They will also set goals that will help them to expand into new areas where they need to build learning skills and become a better student learner. We will look at new and different ways to draw and interact with artwork as we answer the question: Is Perception Reality? This weeks Art History will focus on the Ancient Near East and Ancient Egypt.

WEEK November 30 - December 4

We are finishing printmaking this week. All final prints will be made on Wednesday. Thursday will feature student centered critiques.

Friday will be a normal sketchbook grading day. Each student is reminded that they need a 1 gallon sized ziplock storage bag by Friday, we will start a unit on 3D clay forms next week and the bag will be used each day for storage.

 

WEEK November 2-6 and WEEK November 9-13 

This week we start printmaking. The process and specifics of the media will be discussed, exhibited, and experienced by the students. Specific examples that show the transfer process, the safety skills, the carving process, the inking skills and the printing process will be incorporated. The printmaking project will take two weeks time and will involve well over 30 prints per student artist. It is a very exciting time in the art room as we redecorate the walls with our drying printwork. Each Friday hosts a fresh sketchbook full of new images and designs, the next is due 11-6-09. All print work will be due on Friday November 13.  Printmaking Project Overview: PRINTMAKING ASSIGNMENTS- Art 2-4H.doc

 

WEEK October 26-30

This week the 2 Point Cityscape will be due on Wednesday October 28. We will present these in class on the 29th along with the narritive stories created for the city.

This week our class is examining the perceptions of others. We learned about how people see themselves as opposed to how others see them. Many students were awakened to this reality and have a new "relaity" about how others see them. This project came from the in-class discussion and student centered Q and A that followed. The parameters of the project can be downloaded here: Personality Project.docx
