PROJECT FIVE-SPRAY PAINT LANDSCAPE

OBJECTIVES:
Students will draw a landscape, fill with color and use spray paint to shade and draw.  Darker spray paint will be away from the light source (sun) and lighter colors will be toward the light source.

SUPPLIES:
Formatted 2SHD IBM compatible disk, Paint or Paintbrush, colored printer and paper and mounting supplies.

PRELIMINARY REQUIREMENTS:

  1. Click on the solid rectangle and drag from the upper left hand corner to the bottom right hand corner.  (The rectangle should fill the visible space without scrolling.)  Click on Line and shift and draw a horizon line.  Using fill choose a sky color above and a grass color for below and fill.
  2. Draw mountains and a river using the brush with appropriate colors.
  3. Add clouds and trees using spray paint.  Make sure that colors closer to the sun are lighter and colors in the shadows are darker.  Try different spray sizes.  Notice that blending spray paint colors can create an impressionistic picture and create a sense of depth.

PRESENTATION REQUIREMENTS:
Make a color printout and mount.  Hand in by the date stated. 
FINISHED FILE SAVE TO TEACHER'S MASTER DISK.

ART HISTORY:
Study Impressionistic painters Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Pierre Auguste Renoir or Pointillist Georges Seurat. View Seurat's Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.  Notice how the eye blends the colors.  View the shadows.

GRADING SCALE:  Based on 100% of the project.  Each part is 25%.
