MATTHIAS

9 06 2013

Matthias, a boy from Germany, came the other day to visit us. He is making an exchange with a girl of our School.

We were asking some questions to him: some of them in English and some in German (students who learn German with Ana Badía)



LINE AND WEAVING

24 05 2013

Paper weaving made from coloured card on a sheet of paper

WEAVING

Basically, weaving consists of passing threads through a series of horizontal threads, known as the weft, and through the vertical threads, known as the warp. Weaving is one of the most ancient forms of human creativity.
Baskets and textiles would not have been possible without weaving

 

There are many different skills involved in weaving. You can start practising now!

 

Procedure: Fold one sheet of paper horizontally.

 

Draw a line about one inch from the open end of the folded paper. This is the limit of cutting.

 

From the fold, make irregular cuts up to the line. Cuts need not be straight. (The irregular cuts make a more interesting finished product.) Unfold and lay it flat. This will serve as the “warp” and the “loom.”

 

Measure and cut from the second sheet of paper, one-inch wide by nine-inch strips. These will serve as the “weft.”

Begin by weaving one “weft thread” over one “warp thread” then under the next warp and over the next, etc.

Continue this process alternating over and under with each weft thread. If the previous weft thread went under the warp thread, the following row will begin by going over the warp.

This project can be expanded to challenge the creativity by using more colours, making the weft threads thinner and the designs more detailed. The warp can be measured using rulers and will result in more precise designs. The simple over-under sequence can be altered from every other warp to every second or even third warp to form a regular pattern that will differ from the standard “checker board” style design.

EUROPEAN TEACHERS IN OUR CLASSROOM

21 05 2013

Last Thursday, 14 professors from various European nationalities (Italians, Danes, Belgians, Bulgarians and Germans…) came to visit us in class.
Were an hour with us looking at how are our art in English clases.

We had a good time and tried to do our best for them!



DRAWING THE SCHOOL (PERSPECTIVE)

12 05 2013

    

   

 



ONE & TWO POINTS PERSPECTIVE

9 05 2013

One point perspective:

It  is a type of linear perspective exactly the same as parallel perspective it combines a mathematical systems along with a vanishing point in order to represent three-dimensional objects on a two dimensional surface. This is achieved by intersecting the lines that are draw either horizontally or vertically. From the vanishing point the lines radiate outwards giving the illusion the viewer is looking into the picture and can sense the depth of distance. Therefore when typically drawing railways,roads,buildings or halls using one point perspective it gives the illusion that’s the object is directly facing the viewer, and gives a sense of depth.

 

Two point Perspective:

It uses exactly the same method as One point Perspective does however, T-PP has two vanishing points usually 90 degrees apart on the horizon and all lines radiate from those points.

And now we are going to practice how to draw with perspective…. You can choose bewteen 1 or 2 points… Let’s go outside of the classroom to draw the school building!

WHAT IS NEGATIVE SPACE?

16 04 2013

Negative space isn’t the place your mind retreats to when a painting isn’t going well. Negative space is the space between objects or parts of an object, or around it. Studying this can have a surprisingly positive effect on a painting.
