Painting II

Materials List
• Multiple #2 Pencils
• Eraser
• Sketch Book- not a notebook!!
• Three ring binder or Folder
• Shirt or Apron (optional)
• $15.00 or a check made out to St. Michael – Albertville Schools.

Class Objectives
This class provides students an opportunity to explore painting in depth and gain artistic independence. During the class students will concentrate on developing their art history knowledge, painting techniques, and expand the limitations of painting. Students will understand how to work critically through analysis and interpretation while completing paintings on a larger scale.

By the end of this term students should have met the following objectives:

1. Expand ideas and concepts to express personal “voice”.
2. Develop technical skills and application of paint.
3. Apply the Elements and Principles of Design in a cohesive manner.
4. Articulate thoughts on artworks using the Describe / Analyze / Interpret / Evaluate method.
5. Employ color theory to effectively express ideas.

Originality and Plagiarism
Originality and creativity are important components of this course. Students will not make direct use of another artist’s work and call it their own; this violates copyright laws and is plagiarism, and will result in an automatic failure for the project, and possibly the class. Students are encouraged to work only from personal photographs that they themselves have taken. Other artist’s work may be used as reference for personal artwork, but the work being referenced should be altered to such a degree that the original artist’s intent is in no way recognizable in the student’s work. Copying and/or duplicating of another artist work and calling it your own is cheating and fraudulent, and is not permissible in this course. You must work from your own images for all of these paintings. Be prepared and find your images early.

Instructional Resources:
Lecture, group and individual discussion, independent and group projects, art criticism writings and readings.

Sketchbook Assignments
• Due Dates Dec. 16, Jan 6, Jan. 13, Janu. 21, Jan. 27, Feb. 3, Feb 10, Feb 17

Sketchbooks are an amazing opportunity to draw, visualize, write, thumbnail, or fill countless hours doodling and relaxing. Part of the problem with sketchbooks is that artists see them as the enemy. They are white pages that command a perfect image. Consider using your sketchbook as an extension of your personality as well as continuing to improve your artistic skills. Remember your sketchbook is a tool to better yourself and not viewed solely as a grade.

• You will need to do total of eight sketchbook assignments.
• Spend 2-3 hours to complete each assignment because the purpose of a sketchbook is to make you look harder at things, use your imagination, and explore ideas techniques that interest, and stimulate you.
• Use a variety of mediums
• Remember- you’re only limited by your own imagination.
• Full shading is expected, as are details, and use of the whole page

Class Projects
Students will complete a portfolio of work that demonstrates their personal growth as a painter throughout the duration of the course. Students will have the opportunity to use acrylic or watercolor. Students will also expand their use of materials and art history knowledge through research and discussion.
