Byzantine Icon

Our homework last week was to bring in a full figure byzantine icon to copy in class. Trace it on copy paper in pencil and color only the figure with oil pastels. In pencil, draw a halo around the head, a one inch frame around your icon and copy any words or letters from your original. Go over the frame, halo and words in red oil pastel.

Remember, use the stick figure as a skeleton for your figure and incorporate the symbolism that we spoke about in class: large eyes looking up to heaven, a long nose that breathes in God’s life, a small mouth that stays away from gossip or angry words and is only used for prayer. Christ robes are Red- the color of kingship and/or martyrdom. White robes mean purity. Blue robes also stand for being without sin. Green is the color for teachers and preachers, priests and clergy. The Halo around the head stands for holiness. There is a lot of symbolism in ancient religious art.

We will paint the background with gold paint when we return to school. 

Since it would take us two classes to finish this, there will be no new assignment for next week.

Unfortunately, many of those sculptures were destroyed during wars. Some still exist in exhibits in museums around the world like the Metropolitan museum of art.

  2. Amphorae: We have learned a lot about ancient Greek culture and way of life from the large clay (ceramic) pots called amphorae that the people of Greece used to store food, wine and olive oil. Figures dressed in the popular fashion as well as the everyday activities (including the Gods and the Olympics) are depicted on these pots.

  3. Architecture: The lives of the Greek Gods and the stories about their interactions with humans is a popular subject of much Greek art. The ruins of Temples built to honor the Gods are spread throughout Greece and the Column used in these temples are considered an invention of the Greeks.

Grade 8 Art:

March 17 – March 31: Grade 8 Art: Surrealism

Surrealism

Since we can’t continue to work on our pointillism projects, we’ll start the next modern art project- Surrealism. We are going to do a surrealistic painting.

Surrealism is sometimes called dream art because the images remind us of dreams where strange things often occur, and even stranger combinations of images or ideas. People that we would never see together, come together in our dreams. We enter a house that is familiar to us, only to find that we are someplace unfamiliar or that we can’t find our way out. We are driving in a car that turns into a roller coaster that flies off the tracks and we are falling…and falling…and falling!

Put on your imagination caps and come up with either an object, animal or person that is someplace it doesn’t belong (a fish flying around with a bunch of birds), or two images that would never be seen together in the same place (ice cubes flying out of an erupting volcano!). Sketch out your idea on copy paper, outline it in either oil pastel or permanent marker and paint it with watercolors. Have fun!

Since it would take us three classes to finish this in school, you will have two weeks to do it at home…there will be no new assignment next week.

 

Son of Man by Rene Magritte      Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dali

Week of May 4th to May 18: Grade 8 Art: Abstract Art

step 1: Draw with a lead pencil on a piece of copy paper. Draw lines and shapes that intersect and overlap, until you are happy with the balance of positive and negative space on your paper. 

Step 2: Trace over all your lines with permanent marker.

Step 3: Paint your drawing with watercolors, using all of the colors on the intermediate color wheel (if you have no paint, use colored pencils or crayons

    I’m happy to see that many of you have figured out how to navigate the art pages and are helping your children get their art assignments done! Just a reminder, study sheets and homework assignment details are on your child’s class art page. Art supplies are listed at the bottom of this page and the class pages.

 ****************************************************************

Note about Homework

I often change the due dates and extend the time to give kids the chance to bring things in (Though I would rather get them in by the original due dates).

I don’t grade work late. However, if a homework assignment is not in by the end of the grading period the grade will be zero or missing.
