Creative Cartography Project Steps Please have these 3 steps complete by next week.
Step 1: Decide what type of map you are going to draw: city street style, land/water style, doodle style, pirate treasure map style. Click on the map powerpoint button below to view the slides that I showed in class to jog your memory.
Step 2: Make a list of 10 things you might want to include in your map that are personal to you. Think about how they would be represented on your map. Here is my list...a treble clef to represent my interest in music (could use this in my compass rose), small island to represent my childhood vacation spot, cross to represent my faith, paintbrush, my red house, a river to show my long and winding journey through life, a sea monster to represent adversity I've faced, the bell tower that represents where I met my husband in college, three trees to represent my children, a mountain range to represent my family heritage.
Step 3: Sketch the map in your sketchbook. You don't have to add all the hatches, cross hatches, and stipple yet. Just the outlines. We will transfer it onto the cover in class next week using transfer paper and then you can add the detail work.
Options: Compass Rose Neatlines (border) Cartouche (design around title)
Over the next 6 weeks, we are going to learn about the general movements in art over time. Watch the second video on Greek & Roman Art and then answer these questions IN YOUR BINDER, not your sketchbook. You will turn this page in at the next class.
By the way, notice "the hand's" use of weighted lines in the video drawings. This is what we practiced this week in class!
1. What was the name of the first period of Greek art, in which repeated patterns were used to decorate pottery? 2. How did the position of the figures in Egyptian sculptures compare to the "contrapposto" position of the figures in Greek sculpture? 3. What two architectural building shapes emerged during the Roman Empire? 4. If you were to be immortalized in sculpture, which of the following styles would you prefer and why?
Egyptian/Early Greek: stiff & upright
Classical Greek: ripped & athletic
Hellenistic: highly idealized and dramatic (think comic book hero)
Roman: strong & youthful, but more realistic than classical Greek
