Word documents provide information on painting techniques using different media and materials. The accompanying powerpoints show examples of the techniques being used by school pupils and examples of artists work which relate to projects.
The PowerPoint gives definitions of different painting styles with examples of famous artist's work. This is a great visual lead into a Painting Project that can be done at any age level with modifications.
Power point to discuss Henri Rousseau paintings and real jungle photographs. Questions for class to talk about the colours used, light and shade, size of plants and flowers, foreground and background.
Starting point before trying to make their own Rousseau pictures.
I tested this out with my year 11 and 12 and it was very successful. It’s a fun way to get students engaged in using long exposure with a dslr camera and get use to using the camera manually. I have put sample works of Michael Bosanko, Eric Staller, Hannu Huhtamo and Dana Maltby for inspiration. Students can begin with investigating couple of the artists for their sketchbooks then use their findings to create their own light painting. The PowerPoint teaches students how to edit their photos step-by-step. In order to achieve the best light painting you will need to slow down the shutter speed, narrow the aperture with a low ISO as you can imagine when the shutter is open for a long period of time, a lot of light will be going in. There is no specific settings to use on the camera and therefore students should experiment with exposure triangle (ISO, aperture and shutter speed) until it is the correct settings (worksheet added to record the settings). Please bear in mind the lens focus must be on ‘manual focus’ (MF) rather than ‘auto focus’ (AF) because when it’s dark, it will struggle to auto focus.
You will need the following: -
*DSLR camera (manual focus)
*lights (phone torch are fine)
Hope this helps everyone and have fun!
