Students will demonstrate an understanding of how to manipulate a surface and create several different textures by creating a mixed media painting on an altered surface.
Art of Texture: An exploration of texture manipulation
How can you show movement?
Your piece must have a focal point, at least 3 different textures, and at least one part of your painting must be representational.
Remember what you choose to add to your piece carries symbolism. What symbolism would a leaf mean? broken glass? Seeds? Everything is intentional!
Michael Gadlin :Examining Relationships
I look at making art as a much bigger and exciting concept than that which only relies on any one individual identity. The making of a picture is about participating in a small piece of a bigger unit. For me painting has been a tool to explore what I do not yet know. The act of making art [process] is setup for those who have a deep desire to be challenged and bring to light important questions.
