5 Pages/Artifacts required for the mask packet:
1) Cover Page = (Thesis statement providing context/back story) try to answer the questions of who, what, when, where, why, & how.
2) Mind Mapping = Brainstorming on steriods; 8 different colors, 25 ideas around a central theme/prompt, curved branches with a single word or short phrase, 15 simple doodles related to words/ideas.
3) Research should include 5 masks (3 contemporary from North America, 2 from other cultures) and images that will help you successfully communicate your idea.
4) Thumbnail sketches designed to be 2 minutes a piece helping to visually brainstorm ideas. (4 - 2 minute drawings)
5) Final revised sketch of your idea (20 minutes plus...) Set your stop watch or timer. Focus on the EOAs & PODs (Add spice and pizzaz) Push yourself to add your own spin and voice...
|Monster Mask Criteria:|
1) The mask must be a wall hanging design requiring 4 holes (2 on each side of the mask that are level to eachother).
2)The mask must be a remix of several ideas and contain numerous invented/novel/original elements helping to express your personal voice or style.
3)The mask must be signed on the back to include your full name, block, and year.
4)Students should be able to identify all seven Elements of Art (EOAs) and all seven Principles of Design(PODs) and students should have conciously addressed these during the sculpture making process.
5)No gapping holes should be on the side of the mask, meaning the mask should have a footprint that rests cleanly against the wall. If you can see inside the mask then the mask needs to be painted on the inside and the outside (front/back).
6)Every element must be sculpted, (no shapes should just be drawn the shapes should be incised or low relief with angles and interesting form).
7)The majority of the masks negative space must be dealt with in a significant way other then just color, i.e. texture, design, pattern, rhythm, movement, etc.
8)Reference the QVIC rubric to ensure that you have met or exceeded expectations.
9)As always with any project students should seek Jonny O's final quality check to increase the likelihood of a strong artwork and a high grade.
