In this lesson, students will gain an understanding of what New Media is and how it is used in contemporary Art. They will then create a pixelated art piece using paint, as demonstrated, but this can also be created using a digital process or colouring pencils.
Unit Overview: Digital / new media
In this lesson, our attention turns to Sound Art, and the use of sound to inspire art in abstract forms and shapes.
Using our research into sound art, and our own shapes, patterns and designs from last lesson, we will combine them this time to develop a large watercolour painting.
Building on our understanding of New Media and Abstract art forms, students will learn what an algorithm is and create algorithm art experiments in preparation for the next lesson...
Choosing one design from the previous lesson, students will develop the work using paint (or colouring pencils) using a colour scheme and using negative space. With a fine-line to finish, students will be able to finish the unit with an art piece to frame at home.
