The purpose of this instructional video is to preview the PRINTMAKING Station in our COLOR Unit for K-2 artists.
It?s me, Mrs. Ramirez. <br> I?m going to preview, the Printmaking station.<br> In this session, you will learn the Art Elements of Color and Texture.<br> And the Art Principles of Contrast and Pattern.<br> Don?t forget!<br> Elements and Principles are two of our Quack-a-demic vocabulary words. If you hear the words Elements and Principles, say ?Quack! Quack!? and be ready to tell all about it.<br> What are the elements and principles of arts, you ask?<br> Elements are things you see in your art, like colors and textures.<br> Principles are the ways you use colors and textures to create contrast and patterns.<br> Today, you will learn about color blending and try to experiment the colors you create on a 12 hue color wheel.<br> How will you mix these colors?<br> Your challenge is to make all 12 colors using only the 3 primary colors: red, yellow and blue. Then, you will create a neutral or muddy gray color by mixing them all together.<br> Next, you will a texture coin by pressing found objects into the model magic.<br> Once it is dry, you can wear it as a pendant. <br> You can use animals, brushed, boots, gems or metal knobs. Are you ready to begin?<br> Great!<br> You will start with the color wheel and 3 small lumps of primary colors model magic: red, yellow and blue.<br> Match each primary color with the space on the color wheel.<br> Do you see how they disappear? This is called camouflage.<br> Now make piles of each color by tearing them into tiny bits.<br> Now it is time to press the primary colors in your color wheel.<br> First is red.<br> Next is yellow.<br> Then comes blue.<br> Do you see the triangle? This is called a triad.<br> Carefully blend a piece of red with a piece of blue.<br> Keep blending!<br> Soon you will see violet.<br> That looks great!<br> Now, let?s try to blend red and yellow.<br> Keep blending!<br> Wow, that looks orange.<br> Let?s try to place it in the color wheel.<br> That doesn?t seem to look quite right. I think we need more yellow.<br> That still not quite right. Maybe we can move it to the next place over.<br> That's better. Now, it is camouflage. <br> I think to make this orange, I need more yellow.<br> That?s starting to look better.<br> Let?s test it on the color wheel.<br> Camouflage!<br> Let?s see what happens with yellow and blue.<br> Keep blending!<br> That?s starting to look green.<br> Not quite sure about that one. That one doesn't fit either.<br> I think I need more yellow. <br> Let?s try this on the color wheel.<br> That looks just right!<br> To make blue green, you'll need a little bit of blue and a little bit of green.<br> You did it.<br> To make blue violet, you?ll need a little bit of blue and a little bit of violet.<br> That looks great!<br> To make red violet, you?ll need a little bit of red and a little bit of violet.<br> Use those muscles.<br> Let?s try that one on the color wheel.<br> It?s red violet.<br> It?s time for yellow orange.<br> You?ll need to mix yellow and orange.<br> Great job!<br> I can?t even tell it's there.<br> And now yellow green, you?ll need a little bit of yellow and a little bit of green.<br> Ooh That looks kind of dark. I think I need more yellow.<br> That looks better!<br> Just right!<br> Your color wheel is complete. Great job!<br> Now gather your leftover red, yellow, blue bits of model magic. <br> What do you think will happen if you mix these 3 primary colors together?<br> You are right!<br> You can make a neutral or muddy gray color by mixing the primary colors together.<br> What do you think will happen when we mix all of the colors together?<br> And now for the most fun of all<br> It?s looking muddy!<br> Keep blending.<br> You did it!<br> You have made a neutral.<br> It?s time for texture.<br> Start by rolling a smooth sphere with the palms of your hands.<br> Try to make the surface smooth. <br> Roll it round and round.<br> Your sphere should be round like a ball and it should be very smooth.<br> Lay it on your table and use the palms of your hands to flatten the sphere into a coin.<br> Experiment with different tools by pressing the texture into the coins.<br> Cool pattern!<br> What will the brush do?<br> I like the dots.<br> How about an animal?<br> Paw prints!<br> What else can we do?<br> Ooh. That looks like a fossil.<br> Now for a gem.<br> Wow<br> I think I?ll try a boot.<br> Just look at that footprint.<br> Look at those amazing textures.<br> Now decide what you like the best.<br> Roll your coin back into a sphere and get ready to make your pendant.<br> I like the boot print the best.<br> Use the end of a paint brush to poke a hole into your coin.<br> The model magic is very soft and sticky, so be careful when you?re lifting it off your table.<br> Turn the pendant over and make sure the hole goes all the way the coin.<br> I need 3 things on the back of your coin, your name, yoru secret code ad the color of your table.<br> Have fun experiments with colors and texture.<br> Good luck!<br>
