For this assignment you may pick from one of two assignments:
Option 1: Poster Contest which is linked up here: http://mschangart.weebly.com/home/2015-ma-safe-jobs-for-youth-poster-contest
Option 2: "Spiraling Spheres"
Objective: Create a drawing with materials of your choice that utilizes your understanding of value and form to create spiraling spheres with an active, colorful background.
1. Draw Overlapping circles (or other shapes) of graduated sizes, moving from smallest to largest (largest on top- draw it first) to create an illusion of movement toward you from the surface of the page. Fill the page with various sized trails.
2. Shade one end of the spiral trail gradually darker and one end lighter to enhance the illusion of movement and depth. Refer to your worksheet of creating values on a sphere and use these same values on the sphere to create the form. Use pencil or any other materials and colors that you select.
3. Create an interesting background; perhaps using analogous colors or monochromatictints and shades to develop an ambiguous space.
4. Spend 1.5 to 2 hours on the assignment. Double check your work for quality and craftsmanship.
We worked in class with the 123D Creature app to create a unique creature that is all your own. You were asked to combine two characteristics from two different animals to create your creature. You will create a 3D print of your creature. You will also paint and render lighting on the creature. This image of the creature will be printed on paper.
Please complete the following steps to create a 3D print:
Create your creature in the 123D app
Make an account
Save this creature to your account
Export the creature to the cloud
On a computer open the creature in 123Dapp.com and login to your account
Locate the .stl file
Move the .stl file to the Google Drive folder for your class (I shared with you and you will find this link in your school email)
I will move the .stl file into Makerware
I will check the file and scale it and then print it to the Makerbot
Please complete the following steps to create a print on paper:
Paint and render the creature in the 123D app
