Project Description: Scale and proportion in art refer to size. The scale and proportion of an object are very important in Photoshop, because if you get it wrong, the picture will not look realistic. The foreground is the front of the picture, and objects in the foreground are usually most dominant, and in focus, the middle ground is the middle of the photo, and objects are semi dominant and in focus. Once you get to the background of a photo, objects are usually small and out of focus. In this project, we photoshopped three pictures together to create foreground, middle ground, and background, and to learn photoshop skills.
Project Description: I used Photoshop to change her blonde hair to green. I had to use the paintbrush tool to paint the hair green, and then the eraser tool to clean up my work because there was extra green around the picture that made it look fake.
Art History: Art As Communication
Do you feel you met or approached the project rationale? Use evidence explaining why or why not.
I feel like I approached the project rationale because I did not know anything about digital art before this project, and I did not like art at all. This project helped me to understand how there are different types of art, and that digital art is different than drawing or painting. I also learned a lot about the history of art, and how it has changed over time, and I really enjoyed involving ancient cave art in this project. I think that is was very creative and fun. 2. What is considered art? I think that art is creativity. I think that it doesn’t have to be drawing or painting to be considered art, I think that anything that is a way of you expressing creativity through design can be considered art. It can be drawing, painting, digital art, dancing, etc. 3. How does context affect works of art? Context affects works of art because art usually applies to what is going on in the world at the time of the artwork, so whatever is happening at the time of the artwork, is what could be portrayed in the work, which is context. 4. Why would context matter when interpreting Art? Context matters when interpreting art because of the fact that art applies to what is going on in the world at the time. It is helpful to know what was happening in history when the art was made, because it can give you clues to what the art means, and what the artist was trying to explain through artwork.
Project Description-The point of this project was to get us familiar with Photoshop, and to introduce us to digital art, as well as to teach us about some of the elements of art, and paying attention to our surroundings. To start, we watched a ted talk about observing the world around us. Then we went and took pictures from the environment of each letter of our name. Then we put them into Photoshop, and created an art piece out of the letters of our name. This project helped me to learn the basics of Photoshop, and I think it was very beneficial. If I were to do this project again, I would spend more time on taking better pictures so that I could use my own pictures in the final project.
