Students used Photoshop to posterize and play with the colours of their chosen images. We used the projector to project the finalized images onto the wall, and students traced the outlines of the shapes, colours and shadows. This painting is currently in progress using Tempera paints. The images below show the before and after using Photoshop (posterize, replace colour, selective colour, hue/saturation).
Paintings in Process!
Students chose a celebrity: actor, singer, musician, poet, writer, athlete, politician, etc. and found 2, 4 or 6 different photographs of them. Each photograph should show the person in a different role/setting/lighting/facial expression. Students divided their drawing paper (18x24) into 2, 4 or 6 equal parts and drew the parts of the face from the different photographs, carefully lining up sections to match and create one overall face. This was a challenging project but the results were fantastic and original!
Art Foundations 11/12
Students had a lot of fun with this project!
1. Set up a still-life with objects of various shapes, sizes and textures.
2. Using Sharpie on acetate, have students draw the contour lines of the objects and be sure that lines overlap one another.
3. Students will slightly change positions and on a second piece of acetate, draw the objects in a new angle.
4. Using carbon transfer paper, transfer some lines from both images onto a piece of paper.
5. Colour in each shape with tempera paint.
6. Outline everything with black India ink.
This idea came from the book: LINE Creative Painting Series by Barron's.
