Art 1 Lesson Plans, November 10, 2011

Art 1 Lesson Plans, November 10, 2011

 PRE CLASS: students present work done over the week for instructor’s critique.
OUR INSPIRATION FOR TODAY: "Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid." Proverbs 12:1. NIV. A good artist needs the self discipline to work his craft every day. So also we need self discipline in our lives. There is the discipline that comes from the teacher or master or God we must know that we need that kind of discipline to develop and mature. If we are resentful when someone attempts to correct us we are making a foolish choice.

INSTRUCTION AND DEMONSTRATION ON TECHNIQUE: using random objects for inspiration in creating a composition. I will assemble objects and use ideas from the shapes to create a fantasy scene.

WARM UPS: 1. Today we have a hand out with patterns to copy. 2. Circles like bubbles with shiny highlights. 3. Using scribbling lines to draw a twisted old tree.  4. Repeat patterns like bricks.
