ARTS AND CULTURE

Grade 4

CRITICAL AND CREATIVE REFLECTION

Module 14

VISUAL ARTS: FORM AND SPACE

FORM AND SPACE

In the previous modules you came into contact with colour, line and tone nuances. Now we shall take a look at form and space, as well as the combination of all these elements.

Activity 1

To understand the concepts of form and space [LO 2.6]

  • Your teacher will help you. You are now going to view the world.

STEP 1

Find examples of geometrical forms inside and outside the classroom and then free forms that do not fit into the mentioned category.

The latter forms are known as organic forms.

Example:

GEOMETRICAL FORMS ORGANIC FORMS

………………………………… ……………………………….

………………………………… ……………………………….

………………………………… ……………………………….

………………………………… ……………………………….

………………………………… ……………………………….

………………………………… ……………………………….

STEP 2

Take a closer look at symmetrical and asymmetrical forms.

More examples:

SYMMETRICAL ASYMMETRICAL

……………………………….. ………………………………..

……………………………….. ………………………………..

……………………………….. ………………………………..

……………………………….. ………………………………..

……………………………….. ………………………………..

……………………………….. ………………………………..

……………………………….. ………………………………..

STEP 3

Now look for positive and negative forms.

More examples:

POSITIVE NEGATIVE

…………………………….. ………………………………….

…………………………….. ………………………………….

………………………………. ………………………………….

………………………………. ………………………………….

………………………………. ………………………………….

STEP 4

Complete the following table. Connect the forms (Column A) with descriptions (Column B).

STEP 5

Study the illustrations below and explain how space is created in a picture or work of art:

Find your own examples in magazines and paste them into your journals.

How have you done?

Activity 2

To analyse a work of art [lo 2.6]

  • Visual images and works of art are part of our everyday lives.Look around you!

Study the work of art shown to you by the educator and answer the questions so that you can form your own opinion of the work of art.

Activity 3

To create own visual interpretation [LO 2.6]

  • Your educator will provide you with a complete description of a well-known work of art.
  1. Study the description carefully.
  2. Then create your own version of this with paint, pastels or wax crayons.

3. When you have finished your creation you may look at the original - not beforehand!

We are sure you have learnt something new in this visual art module. Now go on to the next unit on music!

Assessment

LEARNING OUTCOME 2: REFLECTING The learner will be able to reflect critically and creative on artistic and cultural processes, products and styles in past and present contexts.

Assessment Standard

We know this when the learner:

2.6 responds to and discusses images, designs and craft objects used in popular culture, pictures and photographs in terms of content, line, shape, form, colour, texture, space and materials used, using appropriate terminology.

Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
