MIXED MEDIA Station COLOR Unit
Jan 26, 2019
The purpose of this instructional video is to preview the MIXED MEDIA STATION in our Color Unit.
It?s me, Mrs. Ramirez. <br> And I?m going to preview, the mixed media station.<br> At this station, you will learn about the Art Elements of Color and Value. And the Art Principles of Movement and Unity.<br> Don?t forget! Elements and Principles are 2 of our Quack-a-demic vocabulary words.<br> If you hear the words Elements or Principles, say ?Quack! Quack!? and be ready to tell all about it!<br> So, what are the Elements and Principles of Art, you ask?<br> Elements are the things that you will see in your art, like Colors and Values.<br> Principles are they ways you will use Color and Values to create Movement and Unity.<br> Today, you will glue overlapping colored tissue paper to a transparency film with white glue and a sponge.<br> You will have to choose between warm colors or cool colors.<br> Your finished product will be translucent so the light will come through illuminating the color values.<br> Before you start, I need 3 things on the back of your film.<br> Your Name, your Secret Code and the color of your table.<br> Once you have chosen warm or cool colors, you are ready to begin.<br> Make sure your film is on a platter.<br> Squeeze the excess glue on a sponge with one hand.<br> Dab the glue unto the film by pressing gently with the sponge until the entire surface is covered.<br> Carefully touch your finger to a colored piece of tissue paper and gently press it on the wet glue.<br> Take another piece and overlap the first piece.<br> Continue sticking and overlapping until the glue is covered.<br> Now use the glue sponge to press the pieces into place and quote them with another layer of glue.<br> Try to touch the pieces with only 1 finger from each hand or you will have a sticky-eeky mess.<br> Work this way by adding glue, overlapping papers, and coating with glue until your entire film is covered.<br> Once your film is completely covered with paper and glue, carefully carry your paper to the drying rack. <br> When your collage is dry, it will look beautiful on the window.<br> Good luck!<br>
