Set up: • All tables should be cleared off with bags and binders placed in the next room • Materials: • Pencils, black construction paper, chalk pastels.
Vocabulary • Contrast: placing dark tones next to light tones to help the lights pop out. This creates a greater sense of depth and volume. • Light/Mid/Dark Tones: using values that span from very light to very dark, this helps the work to feel complete. • Activation: where an image or lines go out of the picture frame • Light source: an identifiable and consistent stream of light that falls across a still life, portrait, or landscape, casting shadows and creating highlights. • Overlapping: objects drawn in front and behind others to create a sense of depth
I can statements: • I can crop into a still life to create a dynamic composition that is balanced and has three sides activated. • I can describe how a light source affects objects and the background of a still life • I can use contrast and a full range of values to create depth • I can use shading techniques to create contrast and a sense of volume • I can discuss an art piece using appropriate art vocabulary • I can use value, light, atmosphere and colour to create mood and to illustrate the proximity of objects
Minimum Requirements • 3 sides of your paper activated • At least 3 peanuts drawn • Use of overlap in the still life • A light source that is identifiable and consistent • Transitions between light, medium, and dark tones.
