ARTS AND CULTURE

Grade 9

CRITICAL AND CREATIVE REFLECTION

Module 11

To apply research on an artist practically

Activity 1:

To apply research on an artist practically

[LO 2.5]

Step 1

In this module you will apply your research of a specific artist by creating a model theatre in the style of your artist. First you must make the construction. (See illustration):

Figure 1
Figure 1 (Picture 1.png)

  • Cut a stage opening in a piece of strong cardboard.
  • Draw and cut three rectangles into the sides and the front of the cereal box

(to allow light to enter).

  • Glue the box between the two stronger pieces of cardboard - the piece with the stage opening must be pasted to the front of the box and the second

board must be pasted to the closed back of the box.

  • Cut open the top of the box.
  • The basic construction of the model theatre is now complete and can be painted or decorated.

Figure 2 (Picture 7.png)
Step 2

Now you can make the inside of your model theatre. Bear in mind that it must be made in the style of the artist whom you researched:

  • On an A4 page draw and paint the backdrop of your stage.
  • Paste it to the inside of the back of the cereal box.
  • Draw and paint more pictures on smaller A4 sheet for the side drops and panels

of the stage.

  • Bend each panel at the bottom so that each can stand upright. Glue these to the open sides of the box - approximately two per box.
  • Then draw, paint or colour figures and cut them out. Bend these figures at the bottom so that they stand up straight. (Pictures of figures may also be cut from magazines and then be pasted onto cardboard.)

Step 3

Your model theatres can now be exhibited in the school.

Memorandum

Activity 1

Requirements: learner journals containing the research about an artist / pencils/one empty cereal box / two big pieces of cardboard / strong glue / scissors / A4 paper / colour pastels or wax crayons or paint / old magazine if required (be prepared!).

STEP 1

  • The learners are going to apply their knowledge of a specific artist by creating a model theatre in the style of that artist. They must first make the construction (see illustration):
  • Cut a stage opening in one piece of strong cardboard.
  • Draw and then cut out three rectangles in the sides and the front of the cereal box (to allow light to enter).
  • Glue the box between the two stronger pieces of cardboard - with the strong cardboard with the stage opening at the front of the cereal box and the second piece of strong cardboard at the closed back of the cereal box.
  • Cut open the top of the cereal box.
  • The basic structure of the model theatre is now complete and can now be painted and decorated.

STEP 2

  • Now the inside of the model theatre can be made. It must be done in the style of the researched artist:
  • Draw or paint on the A4 paper for the backdrop of the stage.
  • Paste the backdrop to the inside of the back of the cereal box.
  • Draw or paint extra pictures on smaller pieces of A4 paper to serve as the side drops on the stage.
  • Bend the lower part of the side panels/drops so that they can stand. Glue these to the sides of the cereal box - approximately two per side.
  • Then characters / figures can be drawn, painted / coloured and cut out.
  • The bottom parts of these can be bent so that they can stand up straight.
  • (Pictures of figures can also be cut from magazines and then be pasted onto carton.)
