The canvas moves into the realm of relief sculpture and can include several levels, from low or shallow relief to high relief. Stained glass artists of the Middle Ages developed vitreous paint that could be applied to the glass surface in much the same way as a canvas.Merging glass art and painting allowed artists to achieve beautiful, back-lit scenes.Through the use of a solvent-moistened Q-tip like a paint brush, working in oil pastels can act as a bridge to acrylic painting, although not all artists chose to use them---the last artist had a unique approach of first drawing in colored oil-pastel, then covering them in black oil pastel, then using a scratching tool to create art similar to a scratchboard.
The artist, Jesse Reno, uses trial and error, along with intuition to guide his process.
Using wax pastels, acrylics and other media such as markers, many layers of imagery are created on a canvas panel. Use inks and alcohol to create interactive diffused patterns on paper.
The larger ones pictured require the assembly of 12 units.
I learned how to make these from a student in one of my geometry classes.
Based on the work of Italian painter and sculptor Lucio Fontana, students combine 3-D paper forms and a canvas that's been cut through.
In this way, the concepts of shape and form are easily visualized. This lesson is an exercise in intuitive drawing and writing based on the art of Jean (aka Hans) Arp, a pioneer of abstract art known for making randomness and chance part of his process.Using the traditional Japanese method of tie-dyeing called Shibori, students create a graphic wall piece of dyed muslin.Tie, fold, crimp, and bind muslin to create gorgeous patterning.Some documents are in jpeg format because parts were created by hand.You can also see larger views of the student artwork by clicking on each thumbnail.Inspired by these arpilleras, students can envision changes and tell their own stories.This lesson plan also introduces a new faux-felting technique using a paper clip and colorful polyester fiber. I was fortunate enough to be able to teach one year of the subject I'm most passionate about---art, before I was transferred to other disciplines, currently Algebra and Geometry.Below are the lesson plans that I created for my high school art level 1 students during the 2003-2004 semester.Teachers --- feel free to use them as a resource in your classroom.Click on each link to view the document in Microsoft Word.
