The class is based around the decorative art of Tromp L’oeil (“deceive the eye” in French). Which is a technique of painting 3-dimensional objects on a 2-dimensional surface. It’s a traditional technique often used on opera and ballet sets, its also very popular with Russian millionaires for some reason! It is also a great way to engage a scenic art student in thinking about how light and shade play a part on Theatre sets. How shadows and highlights can pronounce areas and when is appropriate to use them.
Here are my learning outcomes so far:
By the end of the lesson the student will be able to evidence a critical understanding of the use of light and shade in order to create a 3-dimensional tromp l’oiel effect on a 2-dimensional surface.
By the end of the lesson the student will be able to evidence their ability to control a single paintbrush to produce a variation of line strengths and paint application techniques.
By the end of the lesson the student will be able to evidence their ability to use a paintbrush from varying distances in order to achieve the same results.
I’m not sure if i need to be more specific? Or does being specific then pigeon hole me to adhere to these strictly? Is the repetition of language appropriate for each outcome?
