LI: to examine work of Chuck Close and consider how it has evolved over time
We are going to look at the artwork of Chuck Close today and over the next couple of days, you will create your own artwork in his style.
Take your time exploring the Chuck Close PowerPoint.
Here are two optional videos you can watch, to see Chuck Close in action/speaking and to find out a bit more about his artwork and approach:
Task: complete Chuck Close Worksheet – refer back to the PowerPoint to help you with some of the questions. Explain your answers and ideas as fully as you can.
LI: reproduce work in a similar style to Chuck Close
Watch the following video – the first part of the video will recap what you learnt yesterday and the second part will show you how to create your own artwork in a similar style to Chuck Close. After watching the video, make sure you read the rest of these instructions before doing your own artwork as our instructions are slightly different from the video! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzdS1bDNgWU
If you have a printer, print out Squared Paper. If the lines don’t print, try printing Squared Paper (darker lines) – but you want the lines to be as light as possible. If you don’t have a printer, you will have to draw your lines on (instructions for this are on the Step-by-step Guide).
Open Step-by-step Guide and get as far as you can with your artwork today.
Finish your artwork from yesterday. We would LOVE to see your finished artwork – please do email them to your teachers if you would like to share them. I’m sure they would look great on Mr Webster’s blog too!
Optional: when you finish, you could have another go at another picture if you want to. You could even think about doing an image for someone else – this could be a nice thing to do as a present for Father’s Day (21st June) or for a relative who you miss seeing…imagine how happy they’ll be to receive this in the post!
