To decide a theme for your work watch one of the following videos, and write down 10 things that you find interesting about it.
Students will be required to submit:
- a sketch page of 10 ideas based on a TED Talk video
- a refined drawing of 2 favourite ideas
- a drawing made to scale of the student's favourite idea
- a flat, wire sculpture identical to student's prepared rough work attached to a wooden base
- 5 pictures of student's process
- written explanation
- three point "what I learned"
- final photograph of sculpture with backdrop
- companion photograph of final rough drawing, alongside final sculpture
- an Adobe Spark page (link below)
- Spark link pasted to Google Classroom Submission Table
The finished product will be due WEDNESDAY MAY 10TH.
A seven day work schedule might look something like this:
- Day 1: Watch TED Talks, and write down ten ideas from it, create two idea drawings in contour
- Day 2: Discuss two ideas with teacher, create a life-size pen drawing of best idea
- Day 3: Cut wire to length using string, start bending wire to make your image
- Day 4: Finish bending your wire
- Day 5: Sand your wooden base using rough, then fine sandpaper, stain your wood
- Day 6: Finish bending, staining, collecting pictures, etc.
- Day 7: *IN LIBRARY* Create an Adobe Spark page about your artwork
This project idea was inspired by the work of Gavin Worth. With hard work, attempt to make your sculpture look as polished, and gallery ready as his. Simple products require thoughtful ideas!
