ART FINAL REVIEW 1) Drawing is a visual art that makes use of any number of drawing instruments to mark a two-dimensional medium. gesture: is a drawing typically the first sort of drawing done to begin a more finished drawing or painting. It is used to block in the layout of the largest shapes in a composition. Basically the fast drawing. .Whatever you see the basic shapes and angles. contour: Drawing in which contour lines are used to represent subject matter. A contour drawing has 3d quality, indicating the thickness as well as height and width of the forms it describes. blind contour: Making a contour drawing with a continuous line with eyes fixed on the contours of the model or object, drawing the contour very slowly with a steady, continuous line, without lifting the drawing tool or looking at the paper. Linear perspective- gives appearance of depth- a mechanical system of creating the illusion of a 3d space on a 2d surface. a. one point- all lines describing straight edges that go from points nearer to the points farther appear to meet at the one vanishing point on the horizontal line. b. two point- all lines representing straight edges that go from points nearer to points farther appear to meet at either two vanishing points on the horizon line. Used when positioned at/across from corners of objects. Horizontal line: The vanishing point is created on the horizontal line. Where the sky and earth seem to meet. It is always at eye level to the viewer and the artist. Vanishing point: is a point in a perspective drawing to which orthogonal lines appear to converge. The number of the vanishing points determines which perspective technique is being used. It is called a vanishing point because as objects get closer to the vanishing point, they get smaller and smaller until they appear to vanish. 2) Lowenfeld's stages of development 1) Ages 2-4 is the scribble stage. Developing basic motor skills. Enjoying moving their arms and making marks on a surface. Longitudinal lines first circular marks after. Controlled scribble- Realize correlation between their movement and the marks made. Name their scribbles and engage in imaginative play when drawing. Objects may be unrecognizable to adults, but have meaning to the child. 2) Ages 4-7 is the Preschematic Stage- First attempts at representation. Circles with extending lines for humans and animals. Tadpole humans. Then emergence of body parts. Little understanding of space. Objects placed haphazardly on picture plane. Objects will typically appear to float. Color use is more emotional than logical. Symbols constantly change. Self centered child. The child begins to tell stories, especially events directly involving them. 3)
