*Instantaneously recognizable.*Memorable.*Can be illustrative in nature, either concrete or abstract. Logos & Symbols Iconic/Symbolic Logos - Icons and symbols are compelling yet uncomplicated images that are emblematic of a particular company or product. They use imagery that conveys a literal or abstract representation of your organization. Symbols are less direct than straight text, leaving room for broader interpretation of what the organization represents. In order for a symbol to be a truly effective logo it should be:

Why do you think it took so long to figure it out? What do you think of Dan Dunn? ( At least three well thought sentences.) • Notes on Gesture Drawing. Gesture Draw a Bike.
Gesture Drawing – The essence of a subject • What is this a picture of? • How do you think this was made? • Why would an artist make something like this? • Video Link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eRTqpJMs98E
Today you will draw a BIKE! • Look for the obvious shapes… • Circles(wheels and gears) • Triangles(frame) • Straight lines (Handle bars) • Remember to… • You will be graded on • Accuracy of the bike form. • Details. • Shading, Value & Realism. • EFFORT!!! • Focus. OBJECTIVE:To learn and apply foundational drawing techniques to improve your artistic skill in drawing.
Gesture Drawing – The essence of a subject • A Gesture drawing is work of art defined by rapid execution (DRAWN QUICKLY). Typically artist draw a series of poses in a short amount of time, often a little as 30 seconds, or as long as 2 minutes • Artists may gesture draw people or animals going about normal activities with no special effort to pause for the artist. For example, drawing from people on the street, performers, athletes, or drawing animals at the zoo. • For ART , a gesture drawing attempts to capture action, basic shapes or movement.
What is a critique? • A critique is an oral or written discussion strategy used to analyze, describe, and interpret works of art. Critiquing is a process in which we organize our thoughts about an art piece. Through four steps: description, analysis, interpretation and judgment, we are able to look at the work and make educated statements about it. • (See Power point how to formally critique art)
Intro To Contour Line Drawing • The Contour LINE • A contour is the line which defines a form or edge - an outline. Contour drawing is the place where most beginners start, following the visible edges of a shape. The contour describes the outermost edges of a form, as well as dramatic changes of plane within the form. 'Blind contour drawing' is when contour drawing is done without looking at the paper.
Value& Shading • The Element of VALUE • The difference between lights and darks found in a work of art. These range from black to white with numerous shades of gray in between. • In drawing value is achieved by shading
Shading… • Addingdarkness to a surface that is opposite of a real or imaginary light source adds depth to your drawing. Shading is the key to a successful drawing.
Shading Blended Shading Method
Shading Cross Hatching
Today in Art… Together On your own • MC Escher’s Eye • How we see. • Draw and discuss the human eye. • Draw three accurately drawn eyes from images on the internet or from magazines. (Draw BIG) • Draw your eye from life using a still life mirror. • DUE MONDAY 9/5
MC Escher EYE -Can you name some parts of the human eye? Draw and label as many as you can in your sketchbook.
How we see… The eye • Process of 'Seeing'Both the eyes have slightly different fields of vision since they are separated by the nose. Each of these visual fields are divided into the right and left side. The following diagram clearly shows the structure of the human eye and what happens when an object is looked at. Not only do the two eyes see different angles of the object but each individual eye takes in different information, due to the different visual fields. The diagram has given two different colors to the different visual fields to make the process more understandable. Signals from the left visual fields of both eyes are sent to the right visual cortex and vice versa. The information received at one eye is incomplete since only one part of the image is available, therefore both eyes immediately send their information to the brain, so that the information can be combined.
Art II Agenda Objective • Today • Draw the other (2) eye images online/or from magazines and draw as accurately as possible • DUE Friday: 3 EYES fabulously drawn+ YOURS FROM LIFE • To learn and apply foundational drawing techniques to improve your artistic skill in drawing the portrait. • You will understand the proportions of the human face and apply them effectively in your own SELF PORTRAIT. • To CREATE A SELF PORTRAIT YOU LOVE!!!
Shading Don’t shade like you write! Use the overhand hold MOST of the time!.
Value Scales… Tools Artist use to ensure a wide range of contrast (difference) between lights and darks in an artwork.
AGENDA 9/4 Objective • Nose DEMO • 3 eyes Plus yours from life due TODAY. • Photograph your best one and your own eye and place in the correct folder in dropbox. • Today in class draw noses, 3 on your own one from life. • We will go to the lab at 2:45 to print three noses. • To learn and apply foundational drawing techniques to improve your artistic skill in drawing the portrait. • You will understand the parts and the proportions of the human face and apply them effectively in your own SELF PORTRAIT.
The NOSE.. • To the right is the basic lines for the nose, two long lines for the edges of the round "ball" at the tip of the nose, and the nostrils. The nose is made of these simple shapes.
Thursday September 8th AGENDA Objective • Remider to retry to join the Facebook Art 11 Group. • Mouth Demo. • Today in class draw noses, 2 on your own one from life. • If you finish you will draw the mouth. • To learn and apply foundational drawing techniques to improve your artistic skill in drawing the portrait. • You will understand the parts and the proportions of the human face and apply them effectively in your own SELF PORTRAIT.
Please Answer in your Sketchbooks • Date: 9/6 • What have you learned as an artist last 2 week? Write at least 3 well thought, descriptive sentences. • Drawing the mouth together • 3 on your own + your mouth from life. • Pick up graded work from the light table.
The mouth… • Sketch the outline of the lips. • "Block in" the shading of the lips, putting more shading on the top lip, and leaving a highlighted area in the middle of the bottom lip, and some highlighted areas on the upper rim of the top lip. • Add more shading and rendering. Don't forget the "ridge" around the lips, and the shading around the mouth that suggests its structure. Add the darkest accents of tone to the corners of the mouth.
Proportions of the human face. Today In Art We will draw this sketch in our sketchbooks… Then a realistic face together using these proportions.
The portrait drawing from an image… • Choose a celebrity portrait to draw. • You are working for as much similarity between the original and your finished art. • You will need to have at least 8 values. • You must represent texture as it appears. • Use your rubric. OBJECTIVE: To apply the proportions of the human face and practice on drawing the parts of the face to create a realistic portrait drawing from a photograph.

Another Chuck Portrait…What do you like about this? Why? Chuck CloseEmma, 2002 Chuck Close http://www.chuckclose.coe.uh.edu/ Sesame street http://www.ucando.org/close.html
Chuck CloseEmma, 2002 Chuck CloseEmma, 2002 http://www.chuckclose.coe.uh.edu/portraits and self-portraits. • In 1988, at the peak of his career, Close became paralyzed. He regained partial use of his arms, and was able to return to painting after developing techniques which allowed him to work from a wheelchair. • Artist Chuck Close is a wonderful example of an individual who has valued his abilities and who has used his abilities in his own best way. By not letting paralysis or being in a wheelchair stop his already successful career as an artist, Close demonstrates how a "can-do" attitude and approach to life can help us overcome obstacles in order to create even greater possibilities than before. This 2002 portrait of his niece Emma is actually a woodcut print based on a painting in Close's late signature style. Chuck spent three months on the painting; master printer Yasu Shibata spent two years carving 27 wodblocks to print 113 colors 132 times to make each print. Every aspect of the process is like a miraculous innovation, beginning with Close's secret for getting a toddler to sit still for three whole months.

Why a grid ???? • Using a grid is a helpful way to enlarge or reproduce a picture. It aids the artist in the placement of the different elements that compose the picture. By working with a grid, you will have an easier time getting the proportions correct. I have laid out the procedure in seven steps on the back.
Drawing Vocabulary Final Portrait Drawing • Celebrity Portraits • Critique Final Art (if you finish)
Helpful terminology: Value: Element of art that deals with lightness or darkness. Depends on how much light a surface reflects. • Contrast: To place and arrange values or colors so as to set off or bring out noticeable differences. • Highlights: Small white areas that show the surfaces of the subject that reflect the most light. • Shadows: Shaded areas in a drawing. They show the surfaces of the subject that reflect the least lights. They are used to create the illusion of form (three-dimensional reality).
