Homeschool Series – Visual Texture with Jim Dine
Jim Dine is an American pop-artist known for bringing ordinary objects to life on the canvas or through sculpture. This modern artist filled his pieces with symbolism, color, and texture. Some of his most popular works incorporated hearts, which we will take a closer look at.
Students will be learning more about pop-art style, while exploring with methods of adding visual texture to their works. We will be working with oil pastel & watercolor to create a pop-art piece of our own, for our first project. Secondly, we will be creating a textured acrylic painting “Jim Dine” style on a canvas panel. A variety of art media, vocabulary, and technique will be explored.
Tap into your creative energy and develop your artistic skills through a variety of media and approaches. Explore the elements and principles of art, while learning about prominent artists, cultures, and movements throughout history. Each 60 minute class will provide the groundwork for artistic growth and understanding. Each series typically consists of 3 classes. Grades 1-8
