This will show me what kind of knowledge you have when actually painting specific things using watercolor. So far we have only used watercolor in an experimental way. Do the best you can on this worksheet. It is due at the end of the period. 

Terminology that is important for you to know when working with colors today.

<![CDATA[BLOCK DAY - MATTING - ]]>Wed, 04 Nov 2015 15:45:32 GMThttp://kimsheekartteacher.weebly.com/drawpaint-one/block-day-mattingYOUR COMPLETED NOTAN IS DUE ON TUESDAY NOVEMBER 10TH. IT MUST BE MATTED AND SIGNED. YOUR RUBRIC NEEDS TO BE COMPLETED AND ATTACHED TO THE BACK OF IT.


All notans must be matted today. Before matting, make sure all pieces are completely glued down to the white paper. doing so will make sure that your score on this part of your assessment is high.

Read through the "how to mat" worksheet as I go over the information with you. We will have a quiz on how to mat pieces of artwork. It will be over the step by step process and will also include working with using a ruler and measuring dimensions. You will need to be able to talk about how to mat work as well as be able to explain it in writing. Learning how to prepare and present your artwork is part of the learning process as an artist.

<![CDATA[Gluing, Matting and learning how to frame]]>Wed, 04 Nov 2015 05:05:29 GMThttp://kimsheekartteacher.weebly.com/drawpaint-one/gluing-matting-and-learning-how-to-frameAll notans need to be properly aligned and glued into place. It is important to glue each piece down completely. Students have been given a sheet explaining the matting process.

ALL STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO ARTICULATE VERBALLY THE STEPS NECESSARY TO GO THROUGH TO MAT A PIECE OF ART WORK.

Students will follow the step by step process, beginning with the accurate measuring of the piece of work. Measurements will be written on a piece of paper (the length and the width of the piece). Six inches will be added to each of those measurements  to allow for a mat with a three inch border. Students will learn how to cut the piece to be used for the mat. They will also learn how to cut the mat out using the Logan mat cutter.

<![CDATA[COMPLETING OUR "NOTANS"]]>Tue, 27 Oct 2015 14:27:32 GMThttp://kimsheekartteacher.weebly.com/drawpaint-one/completing-our-notansToday we will work on completing our NOTAN designs. Note that there are specific things you can do to create the best design possible.

1) Cut your pieces out carefully. Try not to cut too far so you don't have over cuts. At the same time, cut far enough that your design comes out "clean" and you haven't pulled the pieces free. You can always clean up your edges with careful trimming.
2) Use a piece of practice paper to have under your pieces as you are applying glue onto the back of them. It is essential that you apply glue everywhere on the back of your cut pieces. Part of your assessment on this assignment will be how well they are glued down.
3) Make sure you have the pieces correctly aligned before you glue them in place.


 Tomorrow we will be working in our journal/sketchbooks. Please get it out at the first of the period. Keep your portfolios off of the tables. Remember successful journal days end in good clean-up by all students, this includes washing all materials you use and correctly putting away all tools and materials.

<![CDATA[positive/negative space...understanding the relationship between the two.]]>Mon, 26 Oct 2015 13:47:16 GMThttp://kimsheekartteacher.weebly.com/drawpaint-one/positivenegative-spaceunderstanding-the-relationship-between-the-twoSTUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO CLEARLY IDENTIFY VERBALLY AND IN WRITING NEGATIVE AND POSITIVE SPACE IN THEIR ENVIRONMENT.
We will continue to work on our original NOTAN designs. Once the drawing is completed on the black paper, the pieces will be cut out using scissors and in case of small details, cutting knives will be used. All pieces will be carefully set aside since they will be needed for the finished design. Envelopes will be made with a sheet of white paper and staples to keep the pieces in. Any student who is having difficulty understanding the process will be encouraged to watch the NOTAN YouTube video which is on the Friday blog.

Careful craftsmanship is always emphasized. This includes spending time while drawing to make the lines where intended, careful cutting to avoid over cutting, ripping or tearing and gluing down the pieces completely and in the right area so the NOTAN is properly aligned. Good craftsmanship is always included in part of the assessment of the project.

<![CDATA[POSITIVE/NEGATIVE SPACE UNIT - NOTANS]]>Fri, 23 Oct 2015 21:28:56 GMThttp://kimsheekartteacher.weebly.com/drawpaint-one/positivenegative-space-unit-notansWe worked on NOTAN designs on block day, Wednesday October 21. There were a few students who I saw completely understood this assignment. There were many who DID NOT. So we are reviewing the process today. We will be doing a follow along exercise which will be graded. I want to make sure that everyone understands this process. After we have completed the exercise, students will plan out their NOTAN design on a piece of white computer paper. After the design is completed, students will redraw their completed designs of the good black Strathmore paper. Careful cutting will be emphasized. No parts should be glued down until all the cuts have been completed. Precise and careful gluing is also important on the assessment of craftsmanship.

Use positive and negative space in an interesting way.
Understand and use elements of art: shape & space (positive and negative).
Understand and use principles of art: contrast & balance (symmetry and asymmetry).
Culture/Concept Studied: Japanese concept of Notan: positive and negative space depend on each other.

Here are more examples of NOTANS.

<![CDATA[Positive/Negative Space continued....]]>Wed, 21 Oct 2015 14:32:01 GMThttp://kimsheekartteacher.weebly.com/drawpaint-one/positivenegative-space-continuedWe discussed what negative and positive space is earlier last week. If you missed that day, please review this information in the blog. When creating a piece of work it is important to be aware of both what you are drawing and the shapes created in the spaces around and in between your drawing. This can add to the strength of your final piece.

I observed as students were working on a negative space study of a stool that many were having a hard time with the concept of simply drawing the negative space. I certainly don't want to rush this process so I feel it is important that I slow down a little and make sure all student have a good understanding of the relationship between negative and positive space.

Today we will do a relatively simple project that will be finished in this class period. We are going to work using scissors and will cut out shapes to create both the positive and negative images of each shape.
I would like for students to begin to be able to visualize negative and positive space much like silhouettes in front of a blank canvas. It helps to do this using two values that contrast highly against one another, such as black and white.


Positive Negative Cut Paper Lesson


We will do the exercise from this site to help you better understand the relationship between negative and positive space. You need to make a minimum of 10-12 cut shapes. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOUR VARY YOUR SHAPES AND SIZES.
You will be assessed on your craftsmanship as well as the required elements This means I will score you on the neatness in which you do this project. For example:

Are your cut lines sharp and crisp looking?
Did you complete ten to twelve cuts shapes?
Did you neatly and completely glue them in place?
Are your shapes varied in both shape and size?

<![CDATA[Journal day.....]]>Fri, 16 Oct 2015 14:17:44 GMThttp://kimsheekartteacher.weebly.com/drawpaint-one/journal-daySince we are on a shortened schedule today we will continue working in our journals. This will give you time to catch up if you are behind. It will give you the time to explore further, if you have all the required technique pages done.

I realize it is easy to get caught up in the process of creating. I like that you are all enjoying this process and having a great time in your journals. Remember though that there is a list of required technique pages. the list will continue to grow as we learn more processes.
DO NOT NEGLECT THE REQUIRED PAGES PLEASE.

You will always be able to find a list of the required techniques in this blog .

<![CDATA[JOURNAL EXPLORATION - block day]]>Wed, 14 Oct 2015 14:11:55 GMThttp://kimsheekartteacher.weebly.com/drawpaint-one/journal-explorationToday we are working in our journals. I encourage you to have fun and be experimental. This process is for you to learn different techniques that you can apply when creating art. I think it is a good idea to write in your journals and talk about the processes you are learning. It is quite possible that after a period of time you might be looking at a journal page and not quite remember how you did it. You should write down any notes you need to so this doesn't happen to you. When going over your journal individually with you, I will ask you to explain how you created certain pages.

So far there are many  pages that are required for you to have completed and be in your journal. Everyone's technique pages will look different and that is a good thing but every journal is required to have specific techniques completed and shown in the pages. Here is a list of the required techniques as of this date:

1) wet on wet watercolor

2) wet on dry watercolor
3) dry on wet watercolor
4) salt technique using watercolor
5) masking tape with watercolor
6) saran wrap with waercolor
7) rubber cement resist with watercolor
8) dictionary page
9) page cut out and taped back in
10) cut out shapes rubbed over with ware soluble oil pastels
11) two layer light and dark value acrylic paint petroleum jelly resist

REMEMBER IF YOU MISS A DAY, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE YOUR WORK UP. YOU CAN DO THIS AT LUNCH, DURING TUTORIAL OR AFTER SCHOOL. LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU ARE PLANNING ON DOING THIS SO I CAN MAKE PLANS TO BE THERE.
