Practicing Art styles

Besides, you have to explain your abstract pictures (of course in English): why you have used some colours, shapes, lines... what your intentions or your feelings are... You are the creator, so, explain your creation.

Art styles

3 artistic styles, degree of iconicity:
  • Realism: Images and pictures try to copy the reality. More than realistic: hiperrealism.
  • Figurative (representational art): Images and pictures interpret the reality.
  • Abstract: Images and pictures use lines, arcs, shapes, colours, textures... and you can not recognize the reality but emotions, dreams, feelings...

If realism is very very exaggerated, we have Hyper-realism:

Elements of art: DOTS

Georges Seurat invented the technique known as Pointillism, which uses tiny dots instead of broad strokes to put the paint on the canvas. The individual dots of red, yellow and blue are sucked in through your eyes and mixed up in your head to create a variety of shimmering shades.

Click here to see an hiperrealistic and pointillist video:

Jackson Pollock (Jack the Dripper) was an American painter and a major figure in the abstract expressionist movement. Pollock's technique of pouring and dripping paint is thought to be one of the origins of the term action painting.

Alexander Calder is the most representative cinetic art sculptor.

Take a look to this wonderful mobiles by Julie Frith.

Wassily Kandinsky (1866-1944) was a Russian-born artist who is often credited as being one of the first modern artists to create abstract art. Kandinsky's goal was to use brilliant color with geometric shapes, lines and points to create images that had no symbolic, figurative, or narrative elements.

Sonia Delaunay (November 14, 1885 – December 5, 1979) was a Jewish-French artist who, with her husband Robert Delaunay and others, cofounded the Orphism art movement, noted for its use of strong colours and geometric shapes. Her work extends to painting, textile design and stage set design.

Elements of Art

  1. Listen to the first video and create a list of keywords in your notebook (Title: Elements of art-vocabulary).
  2. Send a comment in this article with the list of words.
To comment: 
Remember to write your NAME+ the first letter of your SURNAME + COURSE.
I will publish your comments when all of you have done the task.

Underwater mystery: Sculptris

Imagen "Polygon face", de Geierundide-commonswiki. Licencia CC BY-NC 3.0 

Sculptris is a free sculpting and 3D design software you have to download from Pixologic and install in your PC.

Here I will introduce you into Sculptris a free 3d modeling program. In this video we will go over the basics of the program to help you understand the basics and the power of this program. From there we will go on to sculpting small projects and models and then delve into larger and more advanced models. I hope to guide you as you learn the 3D.

Sculptris is the smallest brother of Zbrush. In video 1 you will see both used to create a dragon. And you can create very different things (video 2):

  1. You will have to create a sea creature (pufferfish or not) using Scuptris.
  2. Save your design as "name.SC1", which is the native file of Sculptris.
  3. Get a screenshot of your model (a .JPG file).
  4. Export your model in .OBJ format.
  5. Upload SC1, JPG and OBJ files onto the colaborative padlet of the task.
