Today new artefacts are created every day. Think of plates with the images of Charles and Diana, photographs and record covers of the Beatles, clothes worn on stage by Madonna, imitations and new creations of African art, etc.

Identify the illustrations below. State which of these objects can be considered as artefacts. Classify the artefacts according to their uses, using the provided table. You can repeat this procedure for the modern artefacts.

Modern artefacts

WEAPONS TOOLS CLOTHING JEWELLERY MASKS HOLDERS

Add your own examples of the 20th or 21st century to each column of the Modern Artefacts. Think of examples from the popular culture or the mass media: famous pop stars, soapie stars, film idols, etc.

Activity 3:

To design and create a video cover

[lo 1.5]

STEP 1

Draw ONE of the items from each of the seven columns you entered as examples of MY POPULAR CULTURE in Activity 3.1. Fill as much of the page as possible with your seven illustrations. These images/illustrations (e.g. baseball bat, car, cell-phone, etc.) must represent you.

STEP 2

Use your rulers to draw three vertical columns of 7 cm each and 6 horizontal lines of 5 cm across your illustrations - like a chessboard.

STEP 3

Use pastels or paint to fill each space in the first block with a warm colour and the background with a cold colour. In the next block change the warm and cold colours around - fill the form of the block with a cold colour and the background with a warm colour. Proceed like this, changing the colours for each block. (See example below.)

Activity 4:

To create an artefact holder

[lo 1.5]

STEP 1

Bring your own cardboard holder to class. The sizes may differ, as long as the holder has a lid.

STEP 2

Tear pieces of paper from magazines to paste onto the holder. Choose two complementary colours , e.g. RED and GREEN / YELLOW and PURPLE / BLUE and ORANGE. The lid can be covered with the one colour and the holder with the other, or the holder and the lid can be covered by both colours, forming patterns and /or forms.

STEP 3

Now paste the video cover that you made in the previous activity onto the lid.

STEP 4

Place five personal artefacts inside the holder. These artefacts can be made or can be finished articles. Then exhibit your holder, together with those of the other learners, in a suitable place in the school building.
