Representational, Abstract, or Nonrepresentational?

<p>Introductory Activity: Print image cards for small group collaboration. Students will sort images into three categories:</p> <ol><li>Representational Art (realistic imagery)</li><li>Abstract Art (recognizable imagery that does not reflect actual appearance)</li><li>Nonrepresentational Art (does not represent a depiction of the physical appearance of people or objects)</li></ol><p>Formal Analysis Activity: </p> <p>Choose a few images to compare and contrast: How did the artist use line, shape, color, balance, repetition, or overall composition to convey</p> <ol><li>The illusion of movement or rhythm</li><li>Visual tension</li><li>A mood or feeling</li></ol><p>NOTE: pdf file of these images is meant to be printed front-to-back so that citations will appear on the reverse side of each image. </p> <p></p> <p><br /></p>

Sustainable Textiles

<p>Sustainability is about using techniques that allow for continual reuse of resources. Why might textile designers want to reuse scraps or reclaim waste fibers? What other things that get thrown away could be reused as part of a woven textile? </p> <p>ART MAKING CHALLENGE: Incorporate something recyclable in a hand-woven textile.  Consider color, texture, and how well it will perform for a particular purpose.  Would you combine the recycled items with traditional yarns or just use recycled items? Which method is likely to get the results you want?</p>
