<p>Unit 4 Introduction to materials, processes and technical skills in art &amp; design</p> <p>Unit 4 Introduction to materials, processes and technical skills in art &amp; design Week 4 Wire SculptureLearning OutcomesList the tools utilised for wire manipulationUse primary research to help in the creation of a sculptureCreate a 2 dimensional wire sculptureCreate a 3 dimensional wire sculptureEvaluate the skills and materials from this lessonAssessment CriteriaUnit 4: 1.1 Critically compare a range of materials and processes used in art and design through experimental application. 1.4 Evaluate the use of materials, processes and technical skills to support own art and design activities </p> <p>Unit 4: 1.1 Experiment with different materials and techniques within these taster sessions1.4 Write about these sessions. What did you use? How did you use it? What are the materials like? What are they used for? Did you enjoy it? How did your test piece turn out? WHY?</p> <p>Equipment used in todays lesson</p> <p>PliersUsed to hold and manipulate. Their flat surface means that wire can be bent at an angle. They are also able to cut wire. Used by artisans, jewellery designers, electricians and other tradesmen</p> <p>Side Cutters Cutting tool for wire. Used by artisans, jewellery designers, electricians and other tradesmen</p> <p>Long nose pliersExcellent for intricate manipulation because of their shape and they are easier to create curves. They are also able to cut wire. Used by artisans, jewellery designers, electricians and other tradesmen</p> <p>Chicken wireGalvanised material that is used for fencing poultry live-stock. It can be used to support as a base to support concrete and cement in housing. Artists use it as an armature base for paper-mache, mod-roc and clay sculptures.</p> <p>Aluminium WireModelling material that is easy to bend and shape but holds its form. It is available in a variety of thicknesses and is used for armatures, jewellery and sculptureHealth and safetyMind your fingers and hands with the pliers, cutters, mesh and wireWatch the wire doesnt unravel or go into your eyesCreating a 2 dimensional formSelect a photograph from Uphill and draw it onto A4 paper.Use the tools to manipulate the wire and trace over your image using the wire in Use one continuous piece of wire to begin withIncorporate wire of a different thickness to give different linear qualitiesAlexander Calder, 1928</p> <p>Gavin Worth</p> <p>La MazetCreating a 3 dimensional formSelect a photograph from Uphill.Use the tools to manipulate the wire and create a 3 dimensional sculptureUse the wire in any way to create your sculptureIncorporate wire of different thicknesses if requiredTeresa Leung</p> <p>Chris Moss</p> <p>Chris Moss</p> <p>Martin Senn</p> <p>Huang Zen</p> <p>Incorporating wire for unit 4: materials, processes and technical skills</p> <p>Wire sculptureEmployment from skills used in todays lessonCraft &amp; Jewellery </p> <p>Armatures for animation</p> <p>Armatures for sculpture and casting</p> <p>EvaluationWrite an evaluation of todays materials and processes lessonRemember: What did you use? How did you use it? What are the materials like? What are they used for? Did you enjoy it? How did your test piece turn out? WHY?</p> <p>HomeworkThink about how you are going to create your final outcome using the skills from these taster sessionsChoose an image which you will use for your Uphill projectConsider how the final outcome will look. Will it be a sculpture, jewellery, 2 dimensional, 3 dimensional, a water colour painting, embroidered part of a garment, or anything else you can think ofUse research to help you with ideas!
