Dear Grade 7 Art Students,
Hopefully your parents have gathered your folders. Inside you will have a smaller blank sheet of white paper and a larger black paper. Some of you also had your foil with a mat so you could finish up the tooling project during your free time.
Today, we will be starting a new project together. It will be a bird themed project. Before we start the project you will answer four questions to get your creative juices flowing.
Please answer the following questions in COMPLETE SENTENCES on a google doc and submit in classroom by the end of class. (approx. 25 minutes)
1. Are you scared of birds? Why or why not?
2. Historically birds have been portrayed as being symbolic of good and/or evil. Give me an example of each.
3. If you given the opportunity to be a bird for a day, what would that day involve? What would you do?
4. What type of bird(s) appeals to you most? Why?
I want you to look at the many different types of birds that exist. Focus on the head and facial features. You will basically be mashing several characteristics together (or make-up your own) to create a new type of bird. You are to compose your draft on the small sheet of white paper with a pencil. You may add color to the draft as well. Take a photo and submit by e-mail by the end of the day. (approx. 30 minutes)
Once I have approved your draft-as per my example, I want you to focus mainly on the upper body/head of your bird. You will take a pencil and re-draw the bird on the large black paper. Make sure you include all the details.
You need to go pick-up chalk pastels at the store (any brad will do). Sadly, I do not have enough to supply each student with a box. Chalk pastels are inexpensive and you can get them at the following locations:
Lulu’s in Khalidiya
All Prints near Khalidiya
The Green Branch Trading Est.-
Jarir Bookstore-Nations Galeria
Canvas Art Stroe – Abu Dhabi Mall
Step 5:Adding chalk pastels. All color in BACKGROUND first. You should be blending color together. You can do any color combinations, pattern...
Step 8: To be continued.
