Students will be able to investigate a theme chosen by the class and represent this theme through a work of art that shows their voice as an artist using a variety of materials.
Today we will start our second choiced based art lesson. We will all brainstorm a common theme for this project and vote as a class to select this theme. It is up to you to come up with what this theme means to you and how you will choose to express that theme. Size and materials is up to you!!
What is a theme? How do artists incorrportate themes? For the remainder of class sketch out ideas in your sletchbook of how you will communicate this theme and what materials you will be using. Please draw several possible thumbnails that go with chosen themes.
Period 2 Culture
Syrian artist Tammam Azzam took the twittersphere by storm last week when he posted an image of Gustav Klimt’s “The Kiss” superimposed on the facade of a bullet-ridden building in Damascus. The photoshopped image — which some mistook for an actual street-side mural — brought the eye of the art world to the artist’s war-torn home country.
“I want to discuss how the whole world could be interested in art and on the other hand two hundred people are killed every day in Syria. Goya created a work to immortalize [the] killing of hundreds of innocent Spanish citizens on May 3, 1808. How many May 3rds do we have in Syria today?”
Period 3 Tattoo design Create a tattoo design for a friend or loved one. This project just focuses on the design process, not actually getting a tattoo!
