Art 1 Lesson Plans, October 13 2011

PRE CLASS: students present work done over the week for instructor’s critique.

OUR INSPIRATION FOR TODAY: “Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33.  Sure we have heard this verse many times but it is still true no matter how often you hear it.  We all want to have success in what we are doing. If our artwork is not working out right it may be because we are not motivated by seeking and glorifying God in it. Remember to ask God for guidance. Ask yourself and God how you can use art for him or more specifically the project you are working on at the time. If you put God first in art, hobbies, work, relationships and whatever else he will bless you. 

INSTRUCTION AND DEMONSTRATION ON TECHNIQUE:  How to use the outside shape to develop the image in a picture.

WARM UPS: 1. Straight lines that are darker at one end and lighter at the other. 2. Three cylinders with shadows. 3.  Draw a face using the side of the pencil to make the face just in shadows. 4. The letter “S” with perfect half circles on top and bottom.
