PRETTY & UGLY WORKSHOP [Workshop #1]
[Images from: http://wildbeautyworld.com/wb_v1/2012/10/16/beauty-archetypes-witches/]
Lets learn how to talk about art. Find two things that are the same item (above, we have two WITCHES) but make sure one is PRETTY and one is UGLY. Dont use these witches choose something else . Spoons, paintings, chairs
Characters from cartoons, birds whatever!
We analyze art using the elements and principles to decide whether art is good or not good or at least whether we like it or not. With the Elements and Principles, we raise our judgements of art to a social or cultural level and participate in an artistic discussion. The Principles are telling us something ABOUT the elements. While people talk about lots of different elements and principles, below are the primary ones used to discuss art.
So as an example, take a look the witches. I will analyze some of their principles and elements. In your analysis you should discuss at least three elements and three principles of your objects, and write at least a few lines about each item. By the end of this workshop, you should summarize b-using the proper terms – what makes a witch (or your own items) pretty or ugly. Ask yourself, does the rest of the world, or the rest of your society, agree with your view of what is ugly and what is pretty? Why?
Elements: Bad Witch Good Witch
Line There are quite a few hard, crooked lines such as The lines of her hair are curvy and soft,
with her fingers and her nose. And the lines of her face are gentle curves.
Form This is a female form – a witch This is also a female form a witch
Shape face and hat are more triangular/geometric Facial shape is more organic/natural
Mouth is angular and teeth are jagged Mouth tilts up in a smile
Color & Value The color Green is a dark hue and The colors here are natural to humans pink,
very unnatural for a human female blue eyes, light hair . All appealing colors as is
Black is associated with evil the silver of her hat and wand.
Teeth are yellow
Texture : Skin appears rough and hard Skin appears soft and smooth
Balance nose is too large for the face Face is symmetrical, all parts (eyes, nose) are
Colors all dark are also unbalanced, normal sized and thus balanced
Emphasis [focal point] Her green nose / face – Her red lips and face which is light and almost glows
Repetition Harsh angles of face and chin are repeated Curved shape is repeated from chest to face
But set in opposing directions thus providing To hand. Also, everything diagonal lines
a contrast that is unpleasant/ off kilter. Are repeated at three levels.
Repetition of black and dark green is too dark.
Summary: Ugly witches are unnatural in their coloring and shapes the dark/green color is depressing and associated
with evil and illness in our culture. Their faces/noses are misshapen (sharp/hard/rough in texture), and their teeth and eyes are also discolored and misshapen. Thus I find that shapes that are more geometric , when associated with humans, are unnatural and ugly. Colors should also follow more natural forms for
Or they are considered ugly. Shapes, like the star, should have positive associations. Balance is pretty.
On the other hand, humans (even witches) that are normal in human coloring, with pleasing facial expressions and a soft texture are considered beautiful.
