critique- Title of Work: Scratch Art

Art form/media: Drawings

  • 1. Description
  • a. Subject matter: Scratch board with the main focus of the witch and cauldron and the lighting.
  • b. Sensory Qualities (list elements of art used and where specifically): Line, Value, pattern, Line
  • c. Technical qualities: cross-hatching
  • 2. Analysis
  • a. How is the work planned? (list principles of art used and where specifically): Using the planned patterns it would use line to create a picture and will also create value to show value of the cross hatching.
  • 3. Interpretation
  • a. What are the main expressive qualities/sensations, moods, ideas communicated to you? Use expressive language.

Line art is created to form Value and contrast of the main focus and mood.

  • 4. Judgement: Could've done better on the cross-hatching to make best of the value, made it to bright around the edges
  • a. Do you feel you were successful with this project? Site evidence from your artwork. No, the line is good but it's not in the right area, although the spell's light is good and the shadow's on the witches clothes are as well, its just the outside lighting is not there.

Color- Produced when light, when striking an object, is reflected back to the eye

  • 3. Interpretation

emphasizes the mood and feelings of the old man and it value, balance help create that effect. The charcoal is blended to show the darkness pulling from the light around the face.

  • 4. Judgment: good, but the lighter shading doesn't show up well, poor blending. Has good value and contrast.
  • a. Do you feel you were successful with this project? Site evidence from your artwork. Somewhat successful, the blending could be better because the stroke marks are very recognizable. also should have darkened the edges, but has good value and contrast none the less. The lighting come in and out very well.

Shape/Form- Form and shape are areas or masses which define objects in space.

To find the parts that would make a creature of sort. This creates the Form/Shape of an object.

  • 3. Interpretation
  • a. What are the main expressive qualities/sensations, moods, ideas communicated to you? Use expressive language. The original idea was to make a thundercloud out of batteries and it striking an electrical pole, but that was reworked to make a Spider with office supplies. The form and shape will be the mood of the overall project.
  • 4. Judgment
  • a. Do you feel you were successful with this project? Site evidence from your artwork.
  • Somewhat successful, the outside was not planned and I had to slap sticky notes to it, but very good with the pencils being legs and the body, head are from a tape holder.

Title of Work: Paper low-relief

Art form/media: sculpting

  • 1. Description
  • a. Subject matter: creating a paper low-relief to show space depth of the paper outline
  • b. Sensory Qualities (list elements of art used and where specifically): Space
  • c. Technical qualities: drawing
  • 2. Analysis
  • a. How is the work planned? (List principles of art used and where specifically): to draw it first then find a way to make the paper stand to make the extruded paper parts. cutting the lines then sliding them in, and gluing them in made the putting together process.
  • 3. Interpretation
  • a. What are the main expressive qualities/sensations, moods, ideas communicated to you? Wasn't a fan of this one due to frustrating part of making the paper stand up on the paper. the drawing idea was too much as it added to the frustration.
  • 4. Judgment
  • a. Do you feel you were successful with this project? Site evidence from your artwork. No it was over complicating, design wise. There were parts I didn't even add to it, it was a mess in general. The cutting and paper standing and curving was an addition to the frustration factor. not my favorite thing to work on.

Texture- Perceived surface quality on a work of art.

  • b. Technical qualities: Splattering paint, mixing colors, teamwork
  • 2. Analysis
  • a. How is the work planned? (List principles of art used and where specifically): As a team we would come up with a theme and put it into action, space was ours. Once decided we painted the chair with the splattered stars to give a space feel, then planets.
  • 3. Interpretation
  • a. What are the main expressive qualities/sensations, moods, ideas communicated to you? Use expressive language. Communication with the team and how we felt about the final project lead the mood and ideas. Changes in plan also fell in line with our moods with the artwork. But we liked the overall product.
  • 4. Judgment
  • a. Do you feel you were successful with this project? Site evidence from your artwork. We di nice job, it had space and texture like space. It felt like space with the colors stars and planets spreader out.
