Take a couple of minutes to relax, breath and stretch.
ART - DAY 3
Learning Focus - to develop artistic skills and techniques.
Yesterday, you started to think about your response to the videos of volcanoes. Make sure you keep your poster safe as it will be useful tomorrow.
Today, we are going to start thinking about which media you would like to use. What is media I hear you ask!!
Media is what you use to make your picture. Because you are at home, you can choose the type of media you like and obviously it will depend on what you have in the house. It should be a 2D picture rather than a model though.
Media you could use:
Once you have chosen your media, you need to spend some time seeing how it works. Test out the media by using it in different ways e.g. overlapping, mixing, smudging, using lines, curves, cross hatching, different shapes, light, dark.... the list is endless. Create a sketchbook page that shows all the different ways you can use your media. You could test out the colours and shapes you are thinking about using. If you are using collage - how can you put the materials together? (mosaic, random, overlap) Have fun testing out your media! See what it can do!!
There are lots of ideas and guides for each type of media in the images below. Take a look and see which ones you can use. Maybe you will find some other ways too!!
