Please find your new Design Brief  S4 SOW – Handscapes-drawing. Print it and put it in your journal.

Your homework is to do more research on Fantasy painters such as the ones mentioned in the brief: John William Waterhouse, Rossetti, Mucha (atmospheric subtle fantasy). Create a page to show their work with notes in your journal.

If you  have time, think more about three possible plans for your handscape…..doodle your thoughts on a page titled “Ideas”.

Research masks, why do people wear them? What are they used for?

Write some notes on your findings and print five photographs out of masks that inspire you. Stick them in your sketchbooks.

Design three different ideas for a mask of your own…..think about the decoration of it and start planning where you might find things like feathers, fur, sequins, sparkly stuff etc etc……

DONT FORGET A ZIP LOCK BAG TO KEEP BOTH YOUR MASK AND WORKING CLAY IN…..(2 BAGS?)

Here’s a google link to a good search: https://www.google.com.mt/search?q=masks+around+the+world&safe=active&rlz=1C1LENN_enMT527MT533&espv=2&biw=1280&bih=638&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjphbjxpcHQAhXFUhQKHcTlDUwQsAQIKw#safe=active&tbm=isch&q=famous+masks+from+around+the+world

When you are done, you should be mega inspired to make one of your own!

This time you can choose the subject for the one you are going to make but that means you will have to do some more research and find good reference pictures to work from…Print them and bring them to class too…

You will need approx 1.5 kilos of air dry clay, your clay tools, a rolling pin and two large zip lock bags.

Have fun planning your idea!
