Art 2 students used black and white paper to create two Notan collage designs, one abstract and the other design recognizable as a noun (person, place or thing).
· A successful Notan design has balance and contrast of positive and negative space.
· Craftsmanship is essential to a Notan design.
Objective of the project: Students created original images using cut paper to demonstrate balance between positive and negative space.
· Art Elements – Space and Shape · Principles of Design – Contrast and Balance
During Term 1 in Graphic Design, we started to learn about how color choices are everywhere in design. For example, muted tones will make you more relaxed than bright colors. A five star restaurant will use neutral colors to make you want to stay a while while a fast food restaurant with bright colors will not give you that feeling. Color choices are important!
We used the app Scribbler Too to create a portrait that showed an emotion or feeling. We then learned how to create a repeating pattern in Photoshop much like how fabric and wallpaper is made. When we put them together, we created some pretty awesome portraits! Check them out!
