Street Art class, making wrapping paper

The street art class is winding down.

The five week long street art class has hit class number five and number five was so fun, it started out as a lesson on stencils and evolved into a wrapping paper making project. The session ended so well we are adding one more class (a sixth week). Great work everyone!

Everyone really pushed and got their hand dirty.

The Montana water based paints worked great, Thanks the paint yard for the recommendations and paint sales and a big shout out to Sis & Moons making it possible.

Class Homework W2, Nov 2016

 

Watch some short video and have any questions ready to discuss, and Patterns

The Letter “E”:  https://youtu.be/kpaVkxB0Tw4

Watching a piece from start to finish: https://youtu.be/3US_fm0sWHo

Find examples of patterns, bring 3 or more, for use in next piece (They can be anything… save them to your device, print, magazine tear out or photos).

Sketch book 11″ × 8½”, a black book with smooth pages. Like this available where ever you like to by supplies.
Markers, I had some questions about markers. So you can find Touch and Copic Markers at at DickBlick in Roswell or you can shop Amazon/Google for ‘touch’ markers, most kits are no cheaper online, But if your willing to take delivery from China and wait weeks for delivery you can find some good deals..

Comparing and Contrasting

Lastly we will be looking at two different artist who approach street art from two different styles we will be comparing and contrasting in and short critique.

Figure drawing event, Sketchbook look.

Sketching from life at Studio in Alpharetta.

We had such a great model, she made my job easy. Mona had great poses and locked it in for sets of 1, 3 5 10 and 15 minute.

I started with a red “Supracolor II soft made by Caran d’Ache“, (more) pencil, very soft , but I was alway able to find an edge and get tight when I wanted.  At first, I went back and forth and, finally settled on red. The end results were more than I hoped for.Drawing of a woman, 1 min, on oct 27, 2016, by Alex Feliciano

Bear Head

A cardboard Bear Head, of the left side built Alex Feliciano

Pushing hard towards halloween, flowing with Cardboard and Hot Glue, here is a picture of the Bear Head. You can check out earlier pics here. I’m happy with the head, I will be starting the suit next. Worried about the paint job, cardboard nude or custom paintjob?

After halloween I will get back to the Clem Heads.

Adding lots of detail, looking for the feeling of fur.

img_5088

I’ve never built a bear head before. but i have always wanted to build a large animal costume. Alex Feliciano, ” I might make it in time for halloween”.  We will see.

I really like this view. I think about painting it and wonder how to go about it, I have lots of crazy sketches and this dog head from a few years back.

I don’t know if i can go full plaid, maybe if I had this machine. I might try to replicate this ‘water transfer printing technique’ with one of the Clem heads, thin paint and a bucket.
