    Distance Learning Phase 1: ALL OPTIONAL

    Week of 3/30/20-4/3/20- 6th Zentangles

    Overview:  Last week we reviewed POP Art (cartoon project). This week we are creating zentangles.

    Estimated Time: 20 minutes; more if you like, but you can always stop and continue next week

    Explanation: This activity you will be able to choose patterns to fill in an outline- the patterns and “doodles” are called zentangles.

    Materials that are Needed:  Paper, Pencil (or colored pencils or crayons), an object to draw (anything)

    Things to know: Zentangling is a style of doodling that uses highly intricate patterns. The focus involved often brings on a relaxed, meditative state. Zentangles can fill an outline- shapes, animals, etc.

    Tasks:   

    1. Divide the shape or animal outline to create 5 or more sections inside your animal/object.
    2. Fill each section with its own pattern. The pattern should fill the space edge to edge. No two sections should have the same pattern.
    3. Have fun and relax.

    Feedback: Please keep all your work in a folder or a notebook to collect at a later date. If you can or are able: you can take a picture and email me at atheis@cbsd.org and/or tweet @AliTheisArt! I will also be posting examples with the twitter handle #CBTheis6thgrade just for my 6th graders! If your teacher has a class Seesaw account setup, you can also share on there. I will have examples of artwork available.

    Thank you! Keep Creating😊

    Week of 3/23/20-3/27/20- 6th Grade Pop Art

    Overview:  Last week we continued to practice the value scale- highlights and shadows. This week we are going to review POP Art (cartoon project). The grid method with proportion is an option. You will have the freedom of using the grid method on any image. Picture options include: people, objects, places, etc. As long as you have picture of the image, you can place a 1 inch x 1 inch grid over the image and plan to enlarge. You do not have to use the grid method.

    Estimated Time: 20 minutes; more if you like, but you can always stop and continue next week

    Explanation: This activity you will be able to choose any object around the house with a logo or image. The grid method will allow you to draw the image/logo to proportion. Once the image is drawn, alter the original color scheme.

    Materials that are Needed:  Paper, Pencil (or colored pencils or crayons), an object to draw (anything)

    Things to know: Grid method can start on original 1 inch x 1 inch. When enlarging, the drawing can be 2x/3x/4x as big. Just remember if the boxes are 2x as big, each box will be 2inches. If the boxes are 3x as big, each box will be 3 inches, etc. Color Scheme is can be altered; monochromatic (1 color many shades), primary (red/yellow/blue), or complementary (opposite on the color wheel- Red/Green, Yellow/Purple, and Blue/Orange).

    Tasks:  Choose a product and use simple shapes to create the design and logo. Use the grid over the original image to help with proportion and placement. Details are always last. After drawing is enlarged and complete, color scheme will be chosen.

    Feedback: Please keep all your work in a folder or a notebook to collect at a later date. If you can or are able: you can take a picture and email me at atheis@cbsd.org and/or tweet @AliTheisArt! I will also be posting examples with the twitter handle #CBTheis6thgrade just for my 6th graders! If your teacher has a class Seesaw account setup, you can also share on there.

    Week of 3/17/20-3/20/20-  6th Grade Value Scale

    Overview:  Review Value Scale- Observe where LIGHT (natural or artificial) hits an object. We discussed when drawing human figures, light creates a highlight (lightest point) and the area out of direct light is in the shadow (darkest area).

    Darkest Area                                                                                       Lightest Area

    value scale

    Estimated Time: 25 minutes or more if you like

    Explanation: This activity you will be able to choose any object around the house and draw the shape. After determining the shape of the object, you need to observe the direction of light.

    Materials that are Needed:  Paper, Pencil (or colored pencils or crayons), an object to draw (anything)

    Things to know: When observing the object and light- ask yourself questions? Is the direction of light artificial (coming from a lamp or lighting in the room)? Is the light natural (coming from a window or direct sunlight outside)? The place on the object farthest away from the light is most likely the shadow and the darkest place. When drawing the lightest and darkest area, you do not have to choose the DARKEST color; this can also be accomplished by pressure of your material. If you push harder on your material the color or VALUE will appear darker.

    Tasks:  Choose an object such as an apple, ball, bicycle, tree, chair, person, etc. No matter what the item there will be the lightest area (highlight) and the darkest area (shadow). There will a shadow the object creates on the object behind it- this is called the cast shadow, also the darkest area. After choosing your object, start with a simple form (3-dimensional- circle= sphere, square= cube, triangle= pyramid/triangular prism), observe the direction of light and determine where the  highlight will be. You will also be able to see many gray or middle ground areas, and you will also be able to view the darkest area. Using your material at hand please sketch this item as best you can.

    Feedback: Please keep all your work in a folder or a notebook to collect at a later date. If you can or are able: you can take a picture and email me at atheis@cbsd.org and/or tweet @AliTheisArt! I will also be posting examples with the twitter handle #CBTheisvaluescale just for my 6th graders!
