Juxtaposition Art Lesson

“Juxtaposition Art” is basically putting two things together that clash/contrast/don’t really make sense and/or make the viewer think and/or communicate a message!

Please click on each of the following links and watch these video clips/ presentations. These will help you to better understand the concept of Juxtaposition in Art! (Then… keep scrolling down for some samples and instructions.)

Here are some samples of Juxtaposition Art!

For your project… you will be combining a background and a sea creature!

First, choose a sea creature that you love! Think about one that has beautiful colours or texture. You will be drawing this as realistically as you can. Later, you can choose your media. You can complete it in watercolour, acrylic paint or pencil crayon. You will need to pick a contrasting background. It could be funny or awkward or something that makes a statement! It should communicate a message to your viewers. I will show you my sample next class. This class, you will aim to complete TWO draft designs. If you have time after that, you can start on your good copy drawing of your sea creature. For your background… I will show you a few options. You can paint or colour your background, OR you can do an image-transfer (I will teach you how to do this process next class). .

Ancient Egypt Research Projects!

Hi Parents of Grade 7 Students,

Here are copies of the rubrics for the Ancient Egypt Research projects as well as some other important information, to make sure that students are on track.

Most students have finished their Powerpoint Presentations or Posters as well as their Reference Lists. (If they haven’t, they should be completing these at home as we have moved on.)

Students are currently working on their 3D models. They should be coming prepared each class, with ideas and supplies to make their models awesome! 🙂

The next item to work on will be Student Handouts/Activities (one per project. Here are some examples that students have done in the past: Word Searches, Crossword Puzzles, Quizzes, Crafts, Games/Challenges, Makeup/Fashion Competitions, Jeopardy-style activities, etc.)

Please see the presentation dates and the rubric below.

Welcome, Grade 7s and Grade 7 Parents/Guardians!

Dear Grade 7s and Grade 7 Parents/Guardians,

I’m so thankful that we can come back to school in person. It’s going to be a great year! On this blog, you will find important information. Please check regularly.

Here is a copy of our Grade 7 schedule. The courses that do not have specified teachers will be taught by me. I’m looking forward to having a lot of fun with you and learning a lot of new things together this year!

Thank you,

Mrs. Wiebe

Online Art for June

Hi Art Students,

I hope you’re doing well! I’ve really appreciated looking at the Artwork that you’ve sent in! Thanks for going with the flow and continuing to create in this time of distance learning!

Here is your next assignment. As you know, I like to give options, so please choose either Option A or Option B (That said, if you’d like to do both and receive bonus marks, feel free!)

Please hand your assignment in by June 11th. Your June sketchbook items will also be due on June 11th.  Please make sure that you hand them in on time, as report cards will come out shortly after!

Option A: Doodling with Lines and Symbols

E5FCEC6B-FDF2-438D-97FF-719B7B22A83E

 

Option B: Create (and photograph) an Art History- inspired portrait! See this article for ideas:

(Warning: some of the examples in the article are a little bit much/ a little weird! Sorry!)

Here are some samples: 41BB1F71-32B4-42C6-A2AF-9E683C8BB47B30B96BED-03B1-41B5-86D2-FC7374A0DB14C4EAAA19-48ED-442C-86EB-AE9F463B878D

This has potential to be pretty funny!! Make sure you take time to put together costumes and practice your poses. I suggest taking a few photos. Then you can send in the best one! Be sure to include a photo of the original work of Art that inspired you, so that I can compare. Try to make your image as similar as possible. As a bonus, you could take a historical image an “modernize it” (like the samples below).

You may choose any reference photo, just make sure it’s modest! Have fun!

Here is a link, if you’d like to read the full article. Consider yourself warned… it’s quite long! Don’t feel that you have to read the whole thing, but I would encourage you to read the beginning and to scroll down to read the author’s questions at the end of the article. I would encourage you to answer the questions from a Biblical Perspective and hand them in.

Thanks!

Mrs. Wiebe
