SCHOOL TRIP: MUSEO DEL TRAJE

The Museo del Traje (SpanishMuseo del Traje) is a museum located in MadridSpain, with collections devoted to fashion and costumes. The museum has over 160,000 pieces and documents. The current building was completed in 1973.[2] Collections date from the Middle Ages up to clothes by Spain's contemporary fashion designers. It was declared Bien de Interés Cultural in 1962. The current Museo del Traje dates from 2004. The building was built as the home of the Spanish Museum of Contemporary Art (MEAC), later to become the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía A restoration of the building was carried out  in 2005, allowing the building to become the home of the Museo del Traje.

OP ART

This term we will be searching and analyzing how to create a few optical illusions. We will get started by doing our own original pieces of Op Art. Here is t more information about it, about Bridget Riley's works and a few activities.




NEXT TASK: "OP ART" using parallel lines. 

MATERIALS: Set square rulers and a black feltpen

OPTICAL ILLUSIONS

This is an interesting video about how to draw simple optical illusions with the computer. Can you do it with a pen and the rulers? Give it a try!

HOW TO DRAW PARALLEL LINES

These are a few videos to give you information about parallel, perpendicular and intersecting lines and how to draw them using the set square rulers. Then feel free to get artistic!!!


How do we use the set square?
You have to handle your set square softly and with accuracy without exercising too much pressure on them, only the needed one to avoid movement.

PARALLEL LINES
  1. The 45 set square hypotenuse (longest side) is placed attached to the line to which we want to draw the parallels (GUIDE).
  2. The 60-30 set square hypotenuse is attached to the 45 set square leg.
  3. Fix the 60-30 set square and move the 45 set square upwards or downwards drawing the desired parallel lines along its hypotenuse.
PERPENDICULAR LINES
If we want to draw perpendicular lines to one direction, we will have to follow the first two steps as stated for parallel lines and then the following ones:
  1. Having fixed the 60-30 set square, the 45 set square is turned until the other leg is attached to the hypotenuse of the 60-30 set square.
  2. Draw the perpendicular line along the hypotenuse of the 45 set square.
Let's review how to draw parallel and perpendicular lines using the triangular set squares.

GEOMETRY, BASIC TERMS

  • Point (punto)                    

      A point is the place where two lines intersect.
      In geometry, a point has no dimension
      We represent a point with a dot.
      We identify this point with a CAPITAL letter.

  • Line (línea)
        A line is made up of infinite points.
        It has not endpoints and continues endlessly on a plane. 
        These lines are named with small letters such r ,s, t...
  • Ray (semirrecta)
      A ray is a "straight" line that begins at a certain point and extends forever in one direction.
      The point where the ray begins is known as its endpoint.
  • Line segment (segmento)
        A line segment is a portion of a "straight" line.
        A line segment does not extend forever, but has two endpoints.


      The point halfway between the endpoints of a line segment is called the midpoint.  A midpoint divides a line segment into two equal segments.


  • Intersection


        The term intersect is used when lines, ray lines or segments share a common point.
        The point they share is called the point of intersection.

And here you can find a video explaining the differences between line, line segment and ray.

THE MAGIC OF GEOMETRY FOR ARTISTS

For those brave students of 3rd ESO that are struggling with all these geometric constructions, and are looking forward to starting with a more artistic approach. Here is a beautiful and fantastic example where nature and geometry blend together: "NATURE BY NUMBERS" (dealing with the Golden Ratio) a 3D animated short film by Cristobel Vila. Enjoy it!



Now lets see a video that is going to help us with our next project (2nd ESO): "The Misterious Magic of Geometry for Artists".
