Recalling something previously learned and using it in a real way indicates what has been learned is embedded. Throughout the year the components of art have been studied. Our ideas about color have grown from the three primary colors to secondary colors, and tints and shades. Lines can be identified and are used both in 2D and 3D. Our vocabulary has grown to include words like vertical, horizontal, and diagonal. Shapes are geometric or organic. Kellen tells us, “Geometric shapes have names we know like triangle or square. Organic shapes do not have names, but are identified with a noun. A person like me is an organic shape.” When describing textures we use words like rough and smooth. “Textile Weaving”, soon to be seen in the Lewis Art Show, was designed to challenge us to “Use what you know about art.” The choices were many. What color of fabric strips appeal to you visually? What kind of pattern to you choose and will it wander a bit or stay true? How will you add texture and how will you fill your space? The different kinds of lines, shapes, and colors will give our weaving texture. Let us also remember the process of weaving was learned months ago and needed to be recalled and used. “I remember when we did weaving last and I how to do under and over. I wanted to use silky ribbon and fuzzy blue yarn for texture,” said Olivia. Please join us Thursday evening, May 5, 6:00-8:00 to share the joys of art!
