Create > Texture Re-Materialization


Goal: Transform the original forms of an image using new objects and textures

Studio Activity:
Find and use a historically significant artwork for inspiration.  Re-create the artworks subject matter and composition using found objects such as buttons, fabric or wood in place of the original materials.  Feel free to change or vary your image from the original.

Trigger Mechanisms: Transfer, change, texturize

Instructional Strategy
  • Evaluate the results
Learning Activity
Reflect > Should I go back and rework anything?
  • Have you done anything special with the art elements (line, color, shape, texture, value)  and principles? (Unity/variety, balance, emphasis contrast, rhythm, proportion/scale, figure/ground relationship)
  • What are the dominant shapes, expressive forms, color schemes, and textures that carry significance?
  • Is there symbolism used in the work to convey meaning other than what one sees?
  • Is the work ordered and balanced? Or chaotic and disturbing?
  • What gives the work its uniqueness?
  • Does the work evoke any feelings?
