STAY AT HOME!

16 03 2020

Queridas alumnas y alumnos

En estas fechas difíciles, ahora más que nunca, tenéis que demostrar que como jóvenes sois responsables, solidarios y colaboradores….Y lo mejor que podéis hacer es seguir aprendiendo y formándoos. Pero esto no significa, por supuesto, que perdáis la alegría y las ganas de vivir que demostráis todos los días en clase!!

Para aprovechar estos 15 días en casa, vamos a seguir trabajando el tema de polígonos regulares estrellados,  trabajados de una manera creativa….RECICLANDO!!!!

…Utilizaremos los rollos de cartón del papel higiénico, material muy valioso estos días :))

Os pongo unas fotos de los posibles ejercicios. Por supuesto se pueden variar e innovar. Cada uno hasta dónde quiera llegar. También podéis pintar el resultado. Siempre adecuaos al material que encontréis por casa.

Material necesario:

Rollos de papel higiénico, de cocina, cartón (de envases, cereales, galletas….)

Tijeras, cútter

Pegamento o celo o silicona caliente o grapadora….

Temperas, colores, rotuladores….

Recomendaciones para trabajar:

  1. Organizar bien el lugar de trabajo. Colocaren la mesa, de manera ordenada, todo el material necesario.
  2. Pensar, antes de empezar, en el proceso que vas a seguir para trabajar (recortar formas, hacer un boceto jugando con ellas, pegar…)
  3. Poner la música que más te guste (con un volumen que no despierte al resto de la casa ni a los vecinos)
  4. Investigar formas posibles hasta llegar a la que mejor te parezca. Busca inspiración por Internet. (En Pinterest hay mucho material) Y una vez que lo tengas claro, pegar todas las partes entre sí.
  5. Diviértete mientras trabajas.

Si te “enrolla” la actividad puedes incluso dibujar el resultado de tu obra en una lámina o papel….

Y si en algún momento, estando en casa, te aburres o te sientes agobiado/a… dibuja, dibuja y dibuja… Puedes ponerte un modelo (con unos rollos de papel higiénico vale) y con un lápiz y un papel…. puedes pasar un rato maravilloso contigo mismo.

Cualquier cosa que necesitéis o cualquier duda que tengáis, podéis escribirme a  isabelri@educastur.org

Un beso grande, se os quiere

“¿Qué seria de la vida si no tuviéramos el valor de intentar algo nuevo? “

Vincent Van Gogh

Iconic Artists at Work: Watch Rare Videos of Picasso, Matisse, Kandinsky, Renoir, Monet and More

24 02 2013

 We’ve all seen their works in fixed form, enshrined in museums and printed in books. But there’s something special about watching a great artist at work. Over the years, we’ve posted film clips of some of the greatest artists of the 20th century caught in the act of creation. Today we’ve gathered together eight of our all-time favorites.

CONSTRUCTIVISM

10 10 2012

Constructivism (art)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Constructivism was an artistic and architectural philosophy that originated in Russia beginning in 1919, which was a rejection of the idea of autonomous art. The movement was in favour of art as a practice for social purposes. Constructivism had a great effect on modern art movements of the 20th century, influencing major trends such as Bauhaus and the De Stijl movement. Its influence was pervasive, with major impacts upon architecture, graphic and industrial design, theatre, film, dance, fashion and to some extent music.

Alexander Rodchenko’s Stairway, 1930.

Matisse Cut Outs - SHAPES

17 04 2012

Drawing with scissors. Making shapes

Make your own Matisse cut-out Still Life.

Henri Matisse, (1869-1954) was a French artist, often known for his bold use of color and original techniques. He was initially considered a Fauvist . Throughout his life, he worked as a painter, draughtsman, printmaker and sculptor. In his later years, while confined to a wheelchair, he began what he called, “Painting with scissors”, or as we know them best, paper cut-outs. Paper cut-out art is simple, bold, playful and can be very beautiful and elegant.

This is a great exercise to learn shapes, foreground and background. This is also a good exercise prior to learning how to paint.

Some of Klee’s line drawings were made by creating a rule and seeing what happened when he followed it.

Try these rules:

1. Obstacle race.

2. A change of direction

3. Curves and points

4. The unbroken Line

Use some ideas to create your own rule for drawing. Now make this into a picture.

Regards from Southampton!

5 07 2009

Hello students.

I hope you are enjoying your Holidays.

I’m here in Southampton at the moment, attending an English course with the PALE group (a group of Bilingual Section Teachers from Asturias).

It’s wonderful the weather here! There is even a heatwave!

Last Saturday I was visiting the TATE Modern Museum. Amazing!

I want to show you a great picture that I saw. You can also listen to the podcast (below) which explains the painting.
