Question Description

I don’t know how to handle this Art question and need guidance.

Final Creative Art Project

This is where you upload your final project proposal. Read below for more information about the assignment guidelines.

The goal of the creative art project is to provide you with an opportunity to create an original work of art and show how much you learned in this class. You can choose any visual form or medium and show your creativity and imagination. You are required to submit a creative art project in order to pass the class in order to meet the University’s Foundations of Knowledge and Learning Core Curriculum Fine Arts requirement. It is worth 18% of your final grade. Make sure to carefully review the scoring rubric at the end of the syllabus for all required elements.

Step 1 – Choose an Artist

First, you need to choose an artist (painter, sculptor, photographer, etc.) whose work is interesting and inspiring to you. Do not copy his/her work but use it as a starting point for your project. For example, if you choose Boticelli’s The Birth of Venus, you may use the same mythological theme in a different medium such as sculpture, mosaic, or song.

Step 2 – Research

  1. Research the time period of your artist.
  2. Research the artist’s biography.
  3. Research the artist’s techniques, ideas, and inspirations.

The more information you know about the artist, the better you will understand the work that inspired you to create your project. Select 1 work by this artist that you particularly admire. You will be required to submit an image of this artwork at the end of the semester along with the project itself.

Step 3 – Proposal

  1. Decide on a medium (pain, clay, etc.).
  2. Type your project proposal (about 400 words) including the following information:
  • Artist.
  • Artwork you have chosen.
  • The medium.
  • How you will show “the spirit” of the artist and the chosen artwork.
  • What social angle applies to the work

EXAMPLE: Here is a pdf file containing a proposal from a previous semester that earned an "A" to help give you an idea of what is expected. Click HERE "Attached" to view the example.

Proposal: REQUIRED, you must get approval for your project or your project won't be accepted.

  • Well-developed paragraph (at least 400 words) free of grammatical and spelling errors.
  • Addresses chosen artist/artwork/movement used as basis of project, the medium, and intentions to capture “the spirit of” that artist and specific artwork.
  • Contains steps to how you will create your artwork and a timeline for how long you estimate it will take
  • Contains an image of the inspiration artist/artwork/movement
  • Identifies social angle of artist/artwork/movement

[STUDENT NAME] Professor Christie Rinck HUM 1020 26 July 2015 Final Creative Art Project: Proposal Dale Chihuly is an American glass sculptor who was born September 20, 1941 in Tacoma, Washington. He is considered the most influential artist in glass blowing, and says his inspirations come from many different places including architecture and nature. His biggest artistic influences include Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Van Gogh, and Frank Lloyd Wright (Burgard, 2008). His work is featured in more than 200 museum collections around the world. Dale Chihuly’s artwork in interesting to me because of its uniqueness- there are many artists who use paints or chalks, but few who blow glass. I have seen a few local artists create glass sculptures growing up, in flea markets or malls, but in my there is no artist who compares to Chihuly. Chihuly studied interior design at the University of Washington and received a M.S. in sculpture from the University of Wisconsin (Yood, 2015). He received an M.F.A. in ceramics from the Rhode Island School of Design, and soon traveled to Italy and worked in a distinguished glassblowing workshop in Murano. When he returned to the United States in 1969, he created the Rhode Island School of Design glassblowing program and established the Pilchuck Glass School near Seattle (Yood, 2015). In 1976, Chihuly was in a car accident that left him blind in one eye, which greatly hurt his depth perception. From this point forward, he relied on assistant glassblowers to execute his designs. His vibrantly colored, unique glass creations were immediately distinguishable in his many series, such as Blankets, Seaforms, and Chandeliers. Dale Chihuly first blew a bubble into stained glass inside of his basement, almost four decades ago. He has loved glass since he was a young boy, and since that first moment in his basement, he has spent his life looking for new and creative ways to blow glass into many unique forms. Chihuly once said “I don’t think much about the past. I think more about the future. I prefer to be thinking about what I want to be doing tomorrow (Burgard, 2008).” I really admire his optimistic attitude, and it is another reason that I would like for my final project to use David Chihuly’s artwork as a starting point. For my final project, I would like to create a few pieces of artwork similar to Chihuly’s Macchia collection. Derived from Latin, the Italian word “macchia” means stain or spot. However, the choice of title for this selection moves beyond the literal meaning and attempts to emphasize spontaneity and the relationship between artist and nature (Hobbs, 1993). I will be attempting to create similar pieces using overhead transparencies, permanent markers, a heat gun, and some sort of shape to mold around. Instead of blowing glass, I will essentially be sculpting with melted plastic. I will also like to attempt different pattern schemes than Chihuly often uses to capture his uniqueness as an artist. First, I will be cutting the transparencies into different sizes and organic shapes and then color them in with permanent marker in different hues. Then I will place them over a mold, likely a ceramic pot, and heat them into different shapes. Since I have never tried this technique or anything like it before, I am sure it will take me many tries to create something that satisfies me. Once I am happy with all of my pieces, I may fixate them to a stationary board as a permanent holding place for them. I am not sure how long this project will take me to complete, but I estimate it will take me a total of 5-7 days to accomplish it. A social angle that relates to this style of artwork is body and mind. Glassblowing is a modern abstract art that comes from the imagination. Without the endless creativity of the human mind, Dale Chihuly’s art would cease to exist.
