chk it @ArtIsEd @NAEA @usedgov – Scratch art and Medieval costume work #lessonplan #artsed #happysaturday

7th graders in the Black Water Middle School art class got to take a brief detour of their Medieval Costume Design so that they could get into Scratch art.

The students had to create a sketch based off of a photograph from an animal, plant or piece of architecture and then experiment with our brand new scratching tools on scratch board to properlly show texture and form.

Check out the Power Point file below – 

Or you can view the Google Docs presentation right here and post it into your Edmodo site

The other students that brought in their own duct tape were able to work on their costumes for the fashion show, check out some of their progress below:

6th graders make Butterfield Stick Sculptures student gallery #artsed #neolithic #handson

Stick_display_001Stick_display_002

6th graders at Black Water Middle studied the work of Deborah Butterfield, well known Folk artist who makes horse sculptures out of found materials, scrap wood and metal. Students were also studying Hunters and Gatherers in Social Studies, so the art students focused on Cave paintings.

Students collaborated or individually came up with a design that resembled a horse as if they were neolithic people

 

Day 1 Students safely use tools to create two “A-frames” and then a spine to support their horse. The students had to cut their wood and make exact measurements

Central Strand Notebook | Eat spaghetti, help Lions
By By PeggyMishoe

The Carolina Forest Lions Club is offering a homemade spaghetti dinner and the opportunity to assist the club in its efforts to help others in the local community on Oct. 24 from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

 

The “A Night in Tuscany” fundraiser will be held at Christ the Servant Lutheran Church, 2105 U.S. 501, across from Horry Georgetown Technical College. Dinners are $7 for adults and $4 for children age three to 10. Dine in or take out.

 

There will be door prizes, a silent auction and a traveling accordionist to provide mood music for the occasion.

8th grade Linear Perspective student gallery work Falll ’11 #artsed #perspective #artlesson #horry

8th grade BWMS students learned the basics of linear perspective from observation and guided instruction when they had to draw from the hallway outside my classroom. I try to tell them that perspective is one of the most valuable tools any artist will ever need.  Click on some of the pics to see why:

We actually spent a day or two on perspective prior to this, but I think it helped for them to understand the connection between doing a Dilation in Math class and the repetitive process of creating a checkerboard.

How can you make an online presentation with Empressr?

If you would like to use the site 280 Slides you can make an online presentation and turn it into an embeddable piece of work on your favorite web site. The site is really easy to use, all you need to do is plug in an email (won’t have to check it) and you can make a simple presentation that can be embedded into a site or downloaded as a Powerpoint/PDF file.   (No audio allowed though).

Watch my video tutorial below to find out how:


You can watch this video to find out how to login/register for a new account, upload your pictures, create new slides, type out your info and then embed it into your favorite web site such as Edmodo

 

Empressr is also a great online presentation site. It is also free, but just takes a bit more info when you start to register. What I like about it better is that you can animate your slideshow and create narrations that can automatically go through the whole presentation. Afterwards, you can embed the slideshow into your favorite site, but it is a bit trickier (watch video #3 to understand why)

 


Tutorial 1 – You can view this tutorial to find out how to create/register for an account. Afterwards, it is simple on how to upload your pictures, create new slides and even use your web cam for narrations or take pics/video of you.


Tutorial 2- After you make your voice narrations, you need to know how to edit and insert them. I also provide some tips on how you can get your slideshow to automatically play with the narrations like a smooth movie. Finally, at the end, I show you how to save, but don’t worry about the embed code part…..


Tutorial 3 – Turns out there are issues when just “embedding” your presentation from Empressr when you are all done. There is a trick that you got to do in order to use the embed code from your main “my empressrs” page. View this video to find out how to publish your video to Edmodo

Day 2: Students use hand building and additive sculpture techniques to create such things as eyes, ears, noses or other features by balling up paper or cardboard and combining it to the mask. The goal is to not make it look like a milk jug, yet to keep the surface smooth
