Above is a multiple exposure picture (one of 68 images created by Century Magazine photographer Dickenson Alley) of Tesla sitting in his Colorado Springs laboratory with his “magnifying transmitter” generating millions of volts.
Its time to start planning for the Final Project. This is the time to propose something that you are really, really excited to try. Towards that end, here is the information I need you to submit (same as the proposal form that I passed out in class) on Monday to discuss your project. Please fill out thoroughly. Note that you must include a sketch!
Final Project Proposal due: Monday, April 24
Soon we will be completing our last studio art assignment. You will have approximately two plus weeks to complete your project. (Of course if you miss days, your working time will be shorter.) This is your chance to explore an area of interest to you. You may go into greater depth with materials or concepts we’ve examined before, or you may explore some aspect of art or craft we did not touch upon. Your project must be completed in the Art Room.
If you are unsure of what to do, suggest some possible ideas and we can discuss.
Some ideas for final projects are listed below:
- Advanced level sculpture project – i.e. assemblage sculpture or mixed media sculpture project.
- Design a piece of furniture (including a scale model)
- Create a personal memory box, (see Joseph Cornell on the web)
- Silk screen or printing project
- Light metals project – jewelry pieces or small scale sculpture
- Design a clothing collection around a common theme. Create a fabric swatch board and collection of drawings.
- Advanced level painting project. Still life, figurative, landscape or homage to an artist
- Puppet or marionette using paper mache
- Design a structure/stage set for a play including a model.
- Accessory design and creation (purses, hats, gloves)
- Create a graphic novel.
- Plan and illustrate a complicated party event (i.e. wedding, inauguration)
- Build a model (architecture/transportation/furniture)
- Planar head design/collage/painting
- E-Portfolio (artifacts, reflection and growth)
Your project must be approved before you begin. You are welcome to use the materials in the art room, but for some projects you may need to purchase materials and this can be costly. Please remember, if you are using imagery that is copyrighted, you should transform that image significantly.
Typed proposal with sketch, materials and time line due on Monday 4/24.
