Whats your final FAC by Kyle Darnell

I find that sometimes, it is easier to formulate thoughts into works by writing them down. So tell me about your project by answering these questions:

What is it?

Why is it?

What size is it?

Who is involved?

If you are working in a group, both partners will need to still post on this. Try to do something different from last time. This is due during the final, May 21st.

Ketchup Week FAC by Kyle Darnell

There is no new assignment this week. Instead I am giving you the opportunity to complete assignments you missed for half credit. Doesn't sound like much, but it is way better than a zero.

 

Now I am not going to dig through all the posts to find who caught up on what, when. You will need to comment on this with which ones you caught up on and I will double check it from there. If you don't write anything here, I will assume you didn't need it.

Sewing Techniques FAC by Kyle Darnell

For the upcoming project I am going to show you some sewing techniques. Unfortunately for you I am not going to show you all of them as there are dozens of different versions of stitches. Your assignment is to research a sewing technique that I don't cover in class. Post a link, talk a little bit about it, and practice it on your demo square that I give you in class.

There is a lot of different types of stitches that have different purposes so feel free to do more than one if you want.

To facilitate this type some variation of "Hand sewing technique" into your search browser and go from there.

Art You Like FAC by Kyle Darnell

I want to see how your tastes in art have changed. So here is the first assignment of the year.

 

Post a link to an artist you like.  Please refrain from the Ninja Turtles (DaVinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Donatello), try to find someone more current. Write a little bit about what you like and how you would recomend them to others. 

Here is mine.

Trenton Doyle Hancock

http://www.jamescohan.com/artists/trenton-doyle-hancock/

Trenton Doyle Hancock deals with issues ranging from current political climate, cool scenerery, to the deeper recesses of the artists' mind. His work is dynamic, playful, dark, and super weird. I would recommend him to anyone who enjoys an artist at play.

 

Your Future FAC by Kyle Darnell

Simple, tell me what you plan on being after college and why. Never to early to start thinking about it. I don't expect it to be about art, but make sure to include a link to what you are talking about. And not everyone can be a Wolverine Trainer.

Tell me your story FAC by Kyle Darnell

This next couple of weeks we are making children books in Watercolor. This weeks online assignment is to tell me what your story is.  I would like a one paragraph story summary. Use this as an opportunity to write down what's in your head to make sure it makes sense.

Color Artist FAC by Kyle Darnell

This unit is focusing on color so what I need from you is some information about artists that are know for their use of color. Obviously a portrait painter will use color in their work, but is it the most important aspect of their work?

There are some areas to look at of course, to get you started. You can use these as a jumping off point, but I expect this to be about an artist during that time frame.

Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Expressionism, Abstract Expressionism, Symbolism, Cubism, and Surrealism should get you started. It is by no means a comprehensive list.

 

And a reminder about the format. Last name and class period. Post a link to the artist you researched then 2-3 sentences about that artist and what they did.

What did you learn? FAC by Kyle Darnell

What did you learn in Mr. Mauers portion of FAC? More specifically what is something you know now that you didn't before?

"I didn't learn anything" isn't acceptable and you will recieve a zero.

And do your best not to repeat answers previously posted, that can get real boring, real fas

If you are working in a group, both partners will need to still post on this. Try to do something different from last time. You will have Monday (5th) and Wednesday (7th) in class to work on it with a due date of Friday (9th)

What makes you so special? FAC by Kyle Darnell

What hobby or interest that you pursue makes you different or more interesting to others? This can be things that you think are normal, like participating in competitions that the school isn't involved in. Or something that you know is special and this is your chance to tell the world.

I will say that you play video games isn't interesting unless you compete and are ranked nationally.

Quarterly Project FAC by Kyle Darnell

Due during finals, you will complete a self-directed final project. In it you will show mastery of whatever you pursue so make sure you budget enough time to actually work on it. 

I find that sometimes, it is easier to formulate thoughts into works by writing them down. So tell me about your project by answering these questions:

What is it? (What are you making? A drawing, painting, video...etc?)

Why is it?(Why are you making this thing? Why do I have to look at it?)

What size is it?(For video tell me about how long it will be. Nothing longer than 4 minutes.)

I will talk to you about it in class on Monday. You can work in groups of two if you wish. No bigger.

 

How was your break? FAC by Kyle Darnell

Tell me about your break. Five days off is a great thing. Heres mine.

 

During break I took it easy. I drew some comics, played some video games, ate way too much, but most importantly, I drew this sweet tortoise with an ice cream sundae on its back. It's a pretty decent example of the pen and ink cross-hatching we will be working on.

 Look at this thing.
