Elements of Art–Space
Space in art is the illusion that you can go into an artwork. Today, on the zoom conference, we learned about the 3 areas in a work of art, foreground, middleground and background.
Our project is in 3 sections. I used a beach scene as my example but you are free to create your own scene. It will need a foreground with your largest most detailed item. The middle ground is an area just a little farther away and the background is the farthest away.
Take a sheet of printer/copy paper 8.5×11 and fold it into 3 equal sections like you are folding it to put it into an envelope.
On the first flap (either direction is appropriate) draw lower on the flap your first object.
Then you will make your first cut along the top of your drawing. Make sure you drew a ground line to cut along. The next cut is along the fold on the blank portion of that flap.
Now you can draw your middle ground scene on the 2nd flap just above the area the 1st flap covers.
And cut, like you did the 1st flap, across the ground line and up the fold.
Now you can finish the last flap drawing. Draw a horizon line and you can have the sun appear to be setting. A simple tiny boat will help show distance.
Now you are free to color!
Older students please practice your shading on these. If you did the beach scene you can add strong shadows because the sun is behind everything. Here are my finished drawings.
Please email a finished project and save in a file for when we return.
