Vocabulary/Knowledge: By the end of this unit, students will understand: line techniques Background Cross-hatching Composition Foreground Hatching Light Source Line Middle Ground Gradation Stipple Texture Tone Value Formative Project 1: Making Marks: the students will have a legal size paper and fold it into 8 sections. The will be instructed to write the line qualities on the back (with pencil) and to draw on the front (with sharpie). Using each segment for each line quality described. See Teacher example. The line qualities are: 1. Lines like ocean waves 9. Lines like the rings in a puddle 2. Lines like rain 10. Lines like the stars shining at night 3. Lines like clouds 11. Lines like grass 4. Lines thin as thread 12. Lines that fade out into the background 5. Lines round like buttons 13. Lines like wood grain 6. Lines jagged as rocks 14. Lines like a fuzzy sweater 7. Lines like dots of snow 15. Lines to show something is getting darker, or lighter 8. Lines like thread dotted with snow *Speed is not important but QUALITY is! Remind students of this. Formative Project 2: Student will create three (3) Neopoprealistic designs to be the back of the ATC. Photocopy the set of 3 four times to complete a set of 15 cards. The Neopop design should include the student s name or last name and contact information such as an * address (*optional). This will be the back of the card. Then, students will cut and paste the Neopop designs on to make the back of the cards. The sets will be laminated later and student can exchange their cards. Summative Project 3: Final Deck and Assessment Next Project: Identity Mapping Project *Formative: Student will create a series of a series of artist trading cards (ATC) using line as the main element for art making- design. Use Making Marks handout-practice. *Summative: Students will create a final, well planned line drawing to show shape, texture and tone that must include foreground, a middle ground and a background Write a final selfreflection Artistic Awareness & Personal Engagement in class. 2

3 STUDENT HANDOUT The students will use the back of the ATC to create a composition. Using a ruler and a pencil. 1.On the back of the card divide the space in a grid like manner. 2. Each square on the grid measures half an inch top-bottom-left-right. 3. Look at the grid and select several sections on the grid and fill it with a unique design. 4. Do not fill-in all the sections. Create a pattern. See the image above for reference. 5. Fill the selected sections with different repetitive patterns. This drawing process is meditative. --Enlarged details of the above grid. --Example of the process of making the NeoPopRealism design. 6. When working on this art of the project refer to the list of line qualities, use them for inspiration but try to come up with new types of emotive or communicative lines. Use this chessboard pattern to inform your drawing. Observe the position of the pieces on the board. Let the pattern guide your pattern. Organize your designs strategically. 3

4 STUDENT READING and REFERENCES DEFINITIONS: Artist Bio and Movement definition NeoPopRealism first created and coined by Nadia Russ in 1989 when she created her first NeoPopRealism ink drawings. January 4, 2003, she created a word NeoPopRealism. NeoPopRealism is a new style of visual arts. It's meant to reflect the attitude of the 21 st century, combining the brightness and simplicity if Pop Art with the psychological depth of realism. The new movement was widely accepted by the world art community, listing Bill Murphy - among others - as early adopters. At the end of 2006 several USA, West Europe, Ukrainian Art Museums (Sumy, Lebedyn & Simferopol) & D. Burliuk Foundation collected Nadia Russ's canvases & graphic art. NY Arts magazine had this to say about Nadia Russ's NeoPopRealism: "Her compositions are harmonious but at the same time challenging, sometimes with "pop your eyes out" color combinations, sometimes with the subject matter. She came up with a term Neopoprealism to describe her work. Her brightly colored canvases with flat linear rendering are reminiscent of the psychedelic posters of Peter Max. But in some works like "His Inner" or "Magicians" she uses crisscrossing lines that connect figures with mystical signs surrounding them in patterned backgrounds. Nadia's implement of black outlines in her paintings give her works a very defined, flat, graphic nature. In the work "New York Faces" the composition is drawn with black acrylic lines on the white background with selective use of blocked colors. Nadia is a master of balancing the hi energy colors in her compositions with poetic drawing style." In 2004, Nadia Russ created the Neopoprealist philosophy and its 10 commandments. This philosophy aims to make the world a better place, without wars, terrorism and religious strife.

6 CLASSIC COLOR SCHEMES HANDOUT The color wheel or color circle is the basic tool for combining colors. The first circular color diagram was designed by Sir Isaac Newton in The most common version is a wheel of 12 colors based on the RYB (an abbreviation of red-yellowblue, RYB is a historical set of colors used in subtractive color mixing, and was once thought to be the set of primary colors. It is primarily used in art and design education, particularly painting) color model. In contrast, RGB color model is an additive color model in which red, green, and blue lights are added together in various ways to reproduce a broad array of colors. The name of the model comes from the initials of the three additive primary colors, red, green, and blue. When each hue is set to zero intensity, the result is black. TVs and computer monitors use RGB to create the colorful images you see on the screen. In print, however, the 4 colors -- cyan, yellow, magenta, and black (CYMK) -- are used to create color images. -Warm colors are vivid and energetic, and tend to advance in space. -Cool colors give an impression of calm, and create a soothing impression. -Neutral are white, black and gray (some considered brown a neutral). Tints - adding white to a pure hue: Shades - adding black to a pure hue: Tones - adding gray to a pure hue: Color is a language, sets the mood, and expresses an emotion. 6

7 Monochromatic color scheme Examples: The monochromatic color scheme uses variations in lightness and saturation of a single color. The monochromatic scheme is very easy on the eyes, especially with blue or green hues. You can use it to establish an overall mood. The primary color can be integrated with neutral colors such as black, white, or gray. Mood and Attribute: clean and elegant Pros: The monochromatic scheme is easy to manage, and always looks balanced and visually appealing. Cons: This scheme lacks color contrast. It is not as vibrant as the complementary scheme. Guidelines: 1. Use tints, shades, and tones of the key color to enhance the scheme. 2. Try the analogous scheme; it offers more nuances while retaining the simplicity and elegance of the monochromatic scheme. 7

8 Analogous color scheme Examples: The analogous color scheme uses colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel. One color is used as a dominant color while others are used to enrich the scheme. Mood and Attribute: fresh, limited contrast, warm or cool and harmonious Pros: The analogous color scheme is as easy to create and looks richer. Cons: The analogous color scheme lacks color contrast. It is not as vibrant as the complementary scheme. Guidelines: 1. Avoid using too many hues in the analogous scheme, because this may ruin the harmony. 2. Avoid combining warm and cool colors in this scheme. Double Analogous (Square) The square color scheme is similar to the rectangle, but with all four colors spaced evenly around the color circle. The square color scheme works best if you let one color be dominant. You should also pay attention to the balance between warm and cool colors in your design. 8

9 Complementary color scheme Examples: The complementary color scheme is made of two colors that are opposite to each other on the color wheel. This scheme looks best when you put a warm color against a cool color, for example, red versus green. The complementary scheme is fundamentally highcontrast. Choose a dominant color and use its complementary color for accents. Mood and Attribute: dominant, contrasting, and good for accents Pros: The complementary color scheme offers stronger contrast and draws more attention. Cons: This scheme is harder to balance than monochromatic and analogous schemes. Guidelines: 1. For best results, place cool colors against warm ones, for example, blue versus orange. 2. If you use a warm color (red or yellow) as an accent, you can desaturate the opposite cool colors to put more emphasis on the warm colors. 3. Avoid using desaturate warm colors (e.g. browns or dull yellows). 4. Try the split complementary (color schemes combine the two colors on either side of a color's complement) scheme; it is similar to the complementary scheme but offers more variety. For example: Green/Orange/Red-Orange, the complementary of Green is Red. On this example, Red (the complementary if Green) has been dropped and the colors on each side of Red have been selected. 9

10 Split complementary color scheme Examples: The split complementary scheme is a variation of the standard complementary scheme. It uses a color and the two colors adjacent to its complementary. This provides high contrast without the strong tension of the complementary scheme. Mood and Attribute: high contrast and strong visibility Pros: The split complementary scheme offers more degrees than the complementary scheme while retaining strong visual contrast. Cons: The split complementary scheme is harder to balance than monochromatic and analogous color schemes. Guidelines: 1. Use a single warm color against a range of cool colors to put an emphasis on the warm color (red versus blues and blue-greens, or orange versus blues and blue-violets). 2. Avoid using desaturate warm colors (e.g. browns or dull yellows), because this may ruin the scheme. 10

11 Triadic color scheme Examples: The triadic color scheme uses three colors equally spaced around the color wheel. This scheme is popular among artists because it offers strong visual contrast while retaining balance, and color richness. The triadic scheme is not as contrasting as the complementary scheme, but it looks more balanced and harmonious. Mood and Attribute: harmonious and strong visual contrast Pros: The triadic color scheme offers high contrast while retaining harmony. Cons: The triadic color scheme is not as contrasting as the complementary scheme. Guidelines: 1. Choose one color to be used in larger amounts than others. 2. If the colors look gaudy, try to subdue them. 11

12 Tetradic (double complementary) color scheme Examples: The tetradic (double complementary) scheme is the richest of all the schemes because it uses four colors arranged into two complementary color pairs. This scheme is hard to harmonize; if all four colors are used in equal amounts, the scheme may look unbalanced, so you should choose a color to be dominant or subdue the colors. Mood and Attribute: might look unbalanced, it is dominant and difficult to harmonized Pros: The tetradic scheme offers more color variety than any other scheme. Cons: This scheme is the hardest scheme to balance. Tips: 1. If the scheme looks unbalanced, try to subdue one or more colors. 2. Avoid using pure colors in equal amounts. 3. Use one color as the dominant hue. Copyright QSX Software Group. All Rights Reserved. 12

13 Color Schemes and ATC Design (Student Handout) General Project Instructions Project: Artist Trading Cards (ATC) Task: Select five (5) ATC from the set of 15 cards. Activity 1. From the color scheme handout select five (5) color schemes that you would like to use as decoration for the back (on the Neopop design) of the ATC or for the front (Making Marks Line design). 2. Apply one color scheme per card. So each card will be a different color scheme. 3. Keep in mind to use PENCIL TECHNIQUES such as STIPPLING, CROSS- HATCHING-HATCHING- BLENDING or POINTILLISIM) when utilizing the colored pencils to apply color to the cards. 4. Once you decide on the color scheme, when selecting the specific colors (hues), think about in what way the colors selected will match the mood of the design. Your color scheme should complement the design. Think about it carefully. MATCH EMOTION>COLOR>DESIGN The composition should feel pleasant to the eye. 5. The project is completed when all 5 cards have been colored. 6. Proceed with the ASSESSMENT Form #1. 7. Proceed with the ASSESSMENT Form #2. 8. Select 3 cards for display. 9. Mount the cards.
