(Warning: some of the examples in the article are a little bit much/ a little weird! Sorry!)
Here are some samples:
This has potential to be pretty funny!! Make sure you take time to put together costumes and practice your poses. I suggest taking a few photos. Then you can send in the best one! Be sure to include a photo of the original work of Art that inspired you, so that I can compare. Try to make your image as similar as possible. As a bonus, you could take a historical image an “modernize it” (like the samples below).
You may choose any reference photo, just make sure it’s modest! Have fun!
Here is a link, if you’d like to read the full article. Consider yourself warned… it’s quite long! Don’t feel that you have to read the whole thing, but I would encourage you to read the beginning and to scroll down to read the author’s questions at the end of the article. I would encourage you to answer the questions from a Biblical Perspective and hand them in.
There are some holidays this week. “May the Fourth Be With You” (I think that one is for the Star Wars fans out there?). Cinco de Mayo (the fifth of May) is a Mexican holiday, kind of like an Independence Day. So you should probably make Mexican food or order some Mexican take out! HOLA!
I hope you guys are doing well and still having fun! I am praying for you and missing you!
PS/ Remember to do 30 minutes of DPA each day! It’s supposed to be a beautiful, sunny week, so make sure you enjoy it!
Read “Rules”, Chapters 9 and 10.
Complete the activities that go with these chapters, found in your “Rules” package. These do not need to be handed in, just make sure you know your stuff for the comprehension quiz!
3. Please complete this Rules Reading Comprehension Quiz (below) and send me your answers.
For your next project, you will be designing your own Food Truck Business!! This week, I want you to do some brainstorming. Look on the internet to find some examples of different kinds of food trucks. When I lived in Vancouver, they had a cool one called “Japadog”. You could buy hotdogs and top them with Wasabi and all sorts of fun things! There was also a food truck that specialized in Poutine (Can you say YUMMY?!). There were tons of amazing toppings like bacon, gravy, beef jerky, green onions, caramelized onions, taco chicken, etc. Kelowna has a number of great food trucks too, including the Kelly O’Brien’s Food Truck! You may have seen them at the IPE or the Falkland Rodeo. (I can’t get enough of their Pachos!)
In your Learning Package, you will find a “Business Plan” page. It looks like this:
Start to answer the questions, in point form, on a separate piece of paper or Word Doc. This is for the purpose of brainstorming and nailing down your idea.
I also want you to collect a bunch of images of ideas that you like. This week, the focus will be on the exterior/design of the Food Truck. (NEXT WEEK you will collect images onto a Word Doc of menu ideas that you like!) Collect a bunch of images and put them onto a Word Doc. If you have access to Pinterest, there are probably a lot of good ideas on there. If not, check the internet for Food Trucks in Bellingham and Seattle. I know that they have a lot of great ones! Here are some exterior ideas that I like (notice that they’re mostly pink and or turquoise- shocker, right?!)
** Don’t hand this in yet, but hang onto it. This is a project, so you will hand everything in at the end. I’ll give you a checklist when it’s time.
Have fun!! 🙂
3. Bible: Call a friend, read this passage together and answer the discussion questions together. (The sheet below will guide your discussion).
For Art today, you will learn about Roy Lichtenstien!
Roy Lichtenstein was a prominent American pop artist who loved to create Art in the style of old fashioned comic strips as a subject matter.
Go to this website to learn more about Roy Lichtenstein:
A. Start by lightly sketching your face with a pencil. Remember, the eyes go in the middle of the head, not up near the top! (You can draw someone else, if you want. You can even draw your dog or your pet if you like!)
B.Trace all the lines with a black Sharpie marker.
C. Fill in the dots with the desired pencil crayon colors. This may take some time, but neatly colored dots will make a successful picture. Also add some light background shading of each color.
D. Using the Sharpie marker again, add some thick lines wherever you think shadows may happen, as shown by image on the right. Be sure to leave some of the lines thin so you have variety.
**You don’t need to hand this in now, but here’s what you should do: Start a Word Doc and save it under the title “yournameart” (mine would be called mrswiebeart). Take a photo of your finished art for this assignment, paste it into this Word Doc and save it. Each week, take a photo of your finished Art assignment, paste it into the Doc and save it again. At the end, you should have a bunch of Art that you can hand in all at once!
Here’s a little inspiration. Anyone can create Art! I love the story of this sweet girl, who found her voice through painting. Sadly, she was overlooked, until a loving family found her and helped her to express her wonderful gift! The look of sheer joy on her face, covered in paint as she relishes in the freedom of creativity is totally inspiring! Vibrant, optimistic colours spill onto her canvases. I’ve always had a soft spot for this kind of art- bright, happy, free, totally wild and unfettered! You can check her out on Instagram, if you like. Here are a few pics to show you a snapshot of her work as well as a short description of her story. Here’s one of God’s beautiful creations, standing next to some fabulous creations of her own!
