Welcome to Vector Art Fundamentals: Digital Media Arts Series Vol. 2 for beginning, intermediate, and advanced, arts and design users. Through a series of rigorous scaffolding projects, this unique step-by-step instruction tool is designed to provide arts and design users with the fundamental skills and knowledge to create vector-based artwork and establishes a link to the Californian standards for the visual arts, the Californian career and technical education standards (CTE), and the standards for the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE). The lessons in this book are designed so that you can learn at your own pace. Even if the user is new to Adobe Illustrator or vector-based drawing, the skills learned are transferable to most vector-based drawing programs. Through this book, every experienced artist will gain many advanced skills, including tips and techniques for using Adobe Illustrator CS6. Although each lesson in this book provides a step-by-step instruction for creating specific projects, the steps, techniques, and tools covered allow for students to experiment and explore their own ideas. This book is designed to be followed in sequence; however, if your skills and understanding are advanced enough, you can jump to any unit that corresponds to your interests and needs. Each lesson concludes with a Testing Your Understanding section and vocabulary list to summarize and reinforce what you have covered.
An introduction to the elements of art, including form, line, shape, value, texture, color, space, and content and style.
A fully revised and updated edition of this back-to-basics title, packed with the fundamental concepts, conventions and theory needed when creating art.
Artistic principles of presentation are the most influential factors in forming an observer's interpretation of a certain object. Artists use these principles to enhance the communication of their ideas to their audience. This book aims to teach and emphasize the importance of these principles to designers so that they too, like artists, can present their ideas more expressively and communicate more easily with their audience. This book intends to enhance the artistic knowledge and perceptions of designers, which will be realized through observation of the work of masters of art and analysis of the masters' presentation methods, followed by offering ways of effectively applying these methods to the visualization and representation of design ideas. The book also describes the application of these principles to visualization and rendering, providing step-by-step examples. These examples include both digital and freehand drawing techniques as well as their combinations. The book offers simple steps for the visualization, each of which is taught analytically and illustratively.
Sound is all around. In movies. On TV. On the radio. Now the idea that sound can be an artistic medium in its own right is shaking the art world. Written by an authority in the field, The Fundamentals of Sonic Arts and Sound Design describes and begins the process of defining this entirely new subject. Topics covered include new and radical approaches to sound recording, performance, installation works and exhibitions, plus visits with sonic artists and sound designers. Designed for students, yet packed with exciting examples of the principles and practice of this new art form, this book is on the cutting edge where technology and art meet.
This introduction to the key elements of the digital art offers explanations of physical computing, using data sources, programming, networks for artists and contemporary experimental practices.
The Simultaneous Method of drawing is founded on the physiology of the eye. It encourages the eye’s natural path of observation to be translated into drawing as directly aspossible, and through the simultaneity of eye and hand movement, it lets the artist creativelyrespond to impressions and revelations the moment that they occur. By not committing to any outer contours within the drawing until the very final stages, the Simultaneous Method fosters an extended process of observation and a more gradual, organic development of structure and expression. Over the course of a drawing, a wealth of associations and interpretations are allowed to surface, which facilitates greater artistic freedom and individuality. Specially developed exercises help the learner to turn the conventional, objective mode of observation into a more creative and integrative view of the drawing subject. The Simultaneous Method expands the process of drawing into an intense engagement with the structure and contents of the observed, enabling individual interpretations and artistic decisions. It also emphatically avoids any kind of direct copying or imitation, which stifles creativity and inventiveness. As well as providing clear, easy-to-understand descriptions and instructions as well as plenty of examples and exercises to master the Simultaneous Method, the author discusses in great detail the artistic foundations, such as the principles of spatial composition, the structural vocabulary of tension and dynamics, the underlying roles played by elementary shapes such as the sphere, cone, cylinder and cuboid. Artistic skills such as expression and composition are aptly illustrated by numerous drawings, as are more technical skills such as visual targeting and the determining of proportions. Topics such as the human figure , animals, plants, portraiture, inanimate objects and surface texturing are treated in great detail. An instructional drawing tutorial with plenty of practical examples.
The original text that set the standard for introduction to art courses across the country, Art Fundamentals has guided generations of students through the essential elements of art as well as the rich and varied history of their uses. The tenth edition expands the wealth of related study materials available to students and faculty by offering a student CD-ROM, Core Concepts in Art, packaged free with every new copy of the text, as well as a comprehensive text-specific Online Learning Center; together these materials reinforce the principles and elements of design with practical exercises, self-guided tutorials, interactive examples, and suggested student projects.
Art Is Fundamental can be used by teachers with extensive art training who must explain complicated concepts to first graders, or by teachers or home-schoolers with no such background who suddenly find they will be teaching art. Eileen Prince has developed a comprehensive art curriculum that can be integrated into any teacher's existing instruction. Though written for elementary school teachers, these lessons can be easily condensed and adapted for middle or even high school students.--[book cover]
