Today you need to complete the following:
Sketch the design for your collage inside of the large rectangle that you drew yesterday. Make sure that you include background, middleground and foreground. You may turn the paper and create a horizontal or vertical format.
After you have sketched out your design you need to go through the magazines ( under the table with the pencil sharpener by my desk) and collect the colors, patterns and shapes that you need to create your collage.
I will show you on Thursday how to glue them down, just focus on collecting all of the colors that you will need. On the large table there are large manila envelopes for you to store the magazine clippings and pieces that you collect.
At the end of the period you will need to clean up any paper scraps and make sure all supplies are put away.

Understanding of color theory
Ability to create a collage that illustrates the color harmony
"In visual perception a color is almost never seen as it really is - as it physically is. This fact makes color the most relative medium in art."
Josef Albers was a painter, poet, sculptor, art theorist, and an educator. Through his teachings he introduced a generation of American artists to the European modernist concepts of the Bauhaus. His experimentation with color interaction and geometric shapes transformed the modern art scene, offering an alternative to Abstract Expressionism and inspiring movements such as Geometric Abstraction, Color field painting, and Op Art. -
