My Art

I am blogging this because I enjoyed making it and I like it. Made this because i was inspired by Jeff Thompson. To make this camera I used cardboard and glued the card board  on  to the other bits. Here are two pictures of my camera. The one on the left is the back of the camera. The bottom square is the screen the little one on the left is to turn on or turn off the camera and luck last for the buttons section the small one on the right is when you go through the photos it is to go next and back.

Now up to the front.I have used a toilet paper roll for the shape of the lens and cut a circle and painted it for the front of the lens.

Art Plan
Later in the term, the whole school is taking part in a visual arts exhibition. You will have to make your own piece of visual art.


Success Criteria of the art
  • No larger than A3
  • Must be super high quality (your absolute personal best)
  • Must be a type of visual art
  • Must be aesthetically pleasing (it has to look good)
  • It must challenge you (aim high)

There is an example of how to do Task 2 on the wall.

Task 1
Discuss with your learning buddy about all of the different types of visual art (there are lots!).
Write 3 of them below.

Task 2- Your plan
Please insert a picture of what your completed art will look like. (It will be either: an image from the internet, a google drawing or a rough draft).IMG_1073.JPG

2.Toilet paper roll
4.Hot glue gun
7. Black paint

Write a list of steps to take.
1.Cut two 8 cm by 5 cm pieces of cardboard then paint them black and add tabs.
2.Then in one of the pisces cut a hole as round as a toilet roll.
3.Next cut two 5 cm by 2cm pieces  with tabs on the side and paint them black.
4.Then glue the  big pieces with the small pieces.
5.With the  toilet roll carefully slide it in the whole to use as the lens.
6. then cut 4 little buttons and place them on the camera near the top.
