Journal/Bellwork Monday Where do you see line & movement in this artwork? WHY? Look at the image .

Texture Texture is the Element of Art that describes the feeling of the surface of an object. Texture can either be actual or implied. Actual texture is texture we can actually feel, implied texture is an illusion of texture that is strictly visual. This is a picture of an actual rose. If we were at the scene of this picture, we could actually feel the petals of the roses, so its texture would be actual. Since this is only a drawing or painting of a rose and it would be impossible to actually feel the petals of the roses in this artwork, its texture is implied.
Happy Friday • STUDIO DAY • Complete Collages • Begin Hand Drawing focus on TEXTURE • Video – OPEN RESOPONSE • Eeryie by David Wolter Texture the way something feels or looks like it feels
VALUE The Element of VALUE The difference between lights and darks found in a work of art. These range from black to white with numerous shades of gray in between. In drawing value is achieved by shading.

Bellwork MC ESCHER Drawing Hands How has Escher used shading and value? What is unique about this artwork.
Shading… • Addingdarkness to a surface that is opposite of a real or imaginary light source adds depth to your drawing. • Shading is the key to a successful drawing.
AGENDA Objective To learn and apply foundational drawing techniques to improve your artistic skill. You will understand the four methods of shading and use them effectively in your art. • Bellwork • You will create a contour Drawing. • You will begin working with the value scale shading worksheet.
Intro To Drawing Contour Hand Drawings • The Contour LINE • A contour is the line which defines a form or edge - an outline. Contour drawing is the place where most beginners start, following the visible edges of a shape. The contour describes the outermost edges of a form, as well as dramatic changes of plane within the form. 'Blind contour drawing' is when contour drawing is done without looking at the paper.

Dali &surREALISM Salvador DALI May 11, 1904 – January 23, 1989 Spanish Artist Surrealism = Over/Beyond Realism http://youtu.be/KYIb9bjmTP4 http://www.thedali.org/
Surrealism Surrealism was one of the most important art movements of the twentieth century. While Impressionists and Cubists were very concerned with painting the way we see—by blurring lines, or by showing an object from different sides at the same time—the Surrealists were more concerned with painting how we really think. They wanted to discover a new reality by mixing dreams with the imagination to create strange and unusual paintings that allowed individual artists to express new emotions and that would make us think. Surrealism began after World War I (in the 1920’s) when a group of artists in Europe decided to get away from everything that they thought resulted in the war—all the governments, religions, philosophies, artistic styles, everything! They wanted to build a better world from the bottom on up and tried to do so by getting in touch with the unconscious, that part of our brain that’s thinking and remembering even when we think it’s turned off. Much of the time, Dalí’s Surreal paintings look just like really odd photographs—done in the perfect and exact lines that the Impressionists and Cubists were trying to get away from! It’s like the Surrealists were saying their dreams were as real as anything else we can see or hear in the world, so real they could even be photographed. If you pay attention, you can still see the influence of Surrealism on TV, in music and in the movies. Can you come up with any examples off the top of your head?
Today in Art • Review Surreal Notes for Test. • Test Friday. • Demonstrate Photographing Art. • Where and How to SAVE for portfolios. • Studio Time to work on your Handscapes. • Friday • TEST!
