El Colegio - Thomas Ramirez - 7.5 hours

We took the last part of our elements and principles quiz this week and discussed the answers that were incorrect. I made certain the students were clear on the definitions and we had a discussion on the differences between some of the terminology. We also looked at Rembrandt this week and his usage of Chiaroscuro. I showed the students many examples of chiaroscuro and how the drama of light can change the emotion of the piece. I also had the students finish their self portrait mosaics and we looked at how light is represented in mosaics through the choice of different hues. I explained that everything they see has multiple hues, reflecting from nearby objects, light, and other factors. I used the fake fruit I had bought to further demonstrate the idea of light and hue change.
