Due Dates

Copy of Journal Entry Monday September 24 - Class 10

Final Images Wednesday September 24 - Class 10


Brief

Make 5 images on your own that are a narrative. The work does not have to be a linear story with a beginning, middle, and end.


Objectives

To further develop technical skills in Painter, to learn how to develop concepts across images so they hold together as a body of work, and to further develop conceptual skills.


Methodology

Decide on a subject - we will look at some examples of other artists work in this area in class.

Use a variety of techniques and methods in Painter - build on your experience with the first project - push yourself to explore new techniques in Painter X for this project - don't get comfortable using only what you already know.

Demos of more advanced Painter techniques will be given in class to help you in continuing to grow with your technical skills in the program.

Make 5 images on your own that are a narrative. The work does not have to be a linear story with a beginning, middle, and end. Think about how color and line can set a mood, then use formal aesthetics and imagery to tell a story. Also notice how one still image can be a story itself. What are the differences between a story told with a still image and a story told with time based media? Consider this in your journal response.



Constraints

Explore the program tools for this project.

Avoid purely abstract works. Use this project as an opportunity to explore subject matter you may not have attempted previously


Submission Requirements

Journal

Turn in a COPY of your journal entry. It will include:

1) Sketch and describe your work. Talk about any ideas/story behind it.

2) Write about the concept of story in still imagery. This will include any research that you have done that illustrates how a group of pictures (or one for that matter), can tell a story.


Final Images

Place all group and individual images in specified project one folder on server.

All images must be saved in the RIFF (.riff) format

Format flattened RIFF (.riff)


Grading

You will be graded on your ability to complete the assignment.

You will be graded on concept, formal qualities (composition, color, etc.), and technical mastery.

This project will be worth 13% of your final grade.
