Students will…

  • Be able to define and understand the following terms:
    • Realistic: To view or represent things as they really are
    • Abstract: To take away or remove parts from the whole so as to change the form, thus making it less recognizable
    • Non-Objective: To alter the shape so it no longer looks like the original object
    • Negative Space: The space not taken up by the actual material
    • Positive Space: The space taken up by the actual material
    • Pattern: The repetition of an element (or elements) in a work
  • Be able to look at a work of art, be it realistic, abstract, or non-objective, and understand how the artist may have come to express it that way
  • Be introduced to artists like Pablo Picasso, Paul Cezanne, Georges Braque, Henry Matisse, and Paul Klee - artists that have qualities of all three forms of art
  • Create realistic, abstract, and non-objective drawings of their own
  • Create a negative and positive space design by connecting the shapes
  • See the progression from realistic to non-objective as they draw their own objects, thus making it easier for them to understand the process
  • Be made aware of the Principles of Design (in this case, balance, rhythm, unity, and repetition) in creating a negative and positive space design
