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.

WHAT IS THE POINT OF GEOMETRY?

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". 




This is a video with examples for your NEXT PROJECT, size DIN-A3, FREE TECHNIQUE:

PLASTER MASKS

HOW TO MAKE PLASTER MASKS

 (From http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Plaster-Mask)

1
Prepare your work area. Choose a room where you have a lot of space to spread out, since working with plaster can get messy. Lay newspapers or a drop cloth on the floor. Have paper towels handy in case a stray drip lands outside the covered area.

2

Prepare your supplies. Cut bandage plaster into strips. You will need enough strips to make three layers of plaster over the face.
  • The strips should be about 2-3 inches wide by 3 inches (5-7.5 cm x 7.5 cm) long.
  • Make some strips longer, shorter, wider or thinner. You'll need strips to cover all areas of the face.
  • Place the strips in a bowl. Set out a second bowl filled with warm water that you will use to wet the strips.
3

Prepare your subject. The person whose face you are using to mold the mask should wear clothing that he or she doesn't mind getting wet with drips of plaster.
  • Decide how much of the subject's face you plan to cover. It's best to have a conversation with your subject about his or her comfort level. If you wish to cover the entire face, make sure the nostril area is left clear so that the subject can breathe freely.
  • The process is easiest if the subject lies on the floor, but if he or she prefers to sit in a chair, wrap towels around his or her neck and shoulders.
  • Ask your subject to tie back his or her hair, and to pin bangs away from the face.

LAST STEP:  time to decorate your masks, and next week we will admire in class your creative works of art. Here is an example from past years students:
