Course Objectives Enable the students know, arrange and visualize the technique, instruments, materials, and equipment; make them develop their skills of observation, voluntary research, choosing, comprehension, understanding, finding the fundamental character, simplification, distinguishing -uniting, correction-completion, analyze and convert, integrating with meaning, imagining and designing. Acquire the students the skills and interest to produce the discipline and order of the meaning-function, values and elements of visual shaping, educate the artistic inclinations, skills and talents of the individuals, teach them to control and use their experience and knowledge about visual conception.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Know about the technique, instruments, equipment; talk about them, arrange and visualize them,
  • Use experience and knowledge about visual perception by using artistic inclination, skill and talents,
  • Have knowledge about colors,
  • Will be ready for the following courses.
Course Content Teaching plastic arts? basic elements and principles; realizing two-dimensional colourful works in accordance with design principles (aptitude, unity, regnant, contrast, balance, measure, gap, rate, movement, hierarchy) by using design elements (fullstop, line, spot, tissue, color, light-shadow, perspective, and light-dark).

Weekly Subjects and Releated Preparation Studies

Week Subjects Preparation
1 a-Evaluation of the Fall Term. Giving information about the Spring Term. Explanation of the terms used in the course. b -Informing the students about the materials and equipment that will be used in the term. c-Description of paints. (water based, oil based/synthetic, cellulosic). Descriptions of painting that will be used in the course (gouache, water color, dry, pastel, etc). d-Forming the hue scale with water based gouache (light-shadow) and implementing this scale on geometric forms and objects. Option: painting separate cardboards with these hues and making a collage by using distortion technique with the materials. Aim: To know the paint, implementing texture, light-shadow and hue. -Curriculum, -Practicing surfaces: Bristol cardboard, rough or soft background cardboards, colorful papers of any kind. -Paints: gouache, water color, dry, pastel, -Equipment: brushes, palette etc. -Drawing equipment. Pencils, eraser, ruler, compass, meters, templates. -Cutters: Scissors, Utility knives, etc. -Sample Studies
2 a-Color: Giving information about the color in line with the sample studies. -Paint colors (Pigment). – Paint Sense. –Classification of colors. (main colors, intermediate colors, supplementary colors) b-Color forming ways through color contrasts and color mixtures. c- (1)-Mutual (simple) Color contrast. Color circle and giving information about it. (UYG- 2)>By using simple colors (yellow-blue-red). 2-With small units (triangle, square, rectangle, circle etc) adjustment on the surface. (UYG- 3) -Sample studies, - Painting equipment and materials -Painting background.
3 a-(2)-Light-Dark Color Contrast: Teaching the subject by using geometric shapes and forms or objective forms. (UYG- 4) PS: Each department can prefer implementing ways suitable with their department. b-(3)-Warm-Cold Color contrast. Classification of colors based on their effects. Teaching the subject by using geometric shapes and forms or objective forms. (UYG- 5) PS: Each department can prefer implementing ways suitable with their department.
4 a-(4)-Complementary Contrast. Teaching the subject by using geometric shapes and forms or objective forms. (UYG- 6) PS: Each department can prefer implementing ways suitable with their department. b-(5)-Simultaneous (deceptive) Contrast. Teaching the subject by using geometric shapes and forms or objective forms. (UYG- 7) PS: Each department can prefer implementing ways suitable with their department.
5 a-(6,7)-Quality and Amount Contrasts. Introduction of color harmony by exemplifying and doing color harmony studies. –Single color, - Double color, -Pole colors, warm cold harmony practices. (UYG- 8) *** Informing students to acquire an artificial or natural object for week 7. - The objects that will be studied, except their appearance, should be in a format that could be cut and some parts of it could be taken out of it. Its massive quality should be evident.
6 a- Duplicating some copies (in big and small sizes) from the color contrast studies and using them for distortion or multiplicity studies. (UYG- 9) b-Transformation: Introduction of the subject by giving theoretical information about transforming from concrete to abstract. Preparation before practices. Presentation of sample studies. METAPHOR -Copies (A3, A4, A5) -Cutters, Adhesive (water based) -Working surface: Bristol, background cardboard.
7 Midterm
8 a- Painting the natural and/or artificial object gathered (gouache, water color, pastel) 1-Overall appearance 2-Side view 3-Top view PS: Studies should be Realistic, photorealistic. (Material, color, and fabric) (UYG- 10) -Paints and extra equipment, -Selected object, -Study surface, -Sample object analysis.
9 a- Linear plotting, geometric abstraction, and graphical plotting in 2D of the object analyzed. (Single hue, double hue, triple hue) (UYG-11) b- Adjustment on the surface of colorful graphical plottings. The idea of adjustment. Studies on fabric. (Single color, double color, triple color) (UYG-12) PS: The subject can be done by both painting and collage. -Sample studies -Study surfaces
10 a-Structure: Studies of adjustments in Line-Square-Circle and already formed objects. Study of the surface embodiment and multiplication of square and circle objects. (UYG-13) – (Non-waste, Self evaluation) b-Multiplication of the design, prototype that is formed based on the Square-Circle images that have no variability in Euclid Geometry and transformation of it into a new design on the surface (Relief).– Similarity in difference, difference in similarity. – Black-White or double color practices. (UYG-14) PS: The study could be done individually or in pairs. “Coherence, is the design that does not lack or excess in anything.” -Construction paper or paper in any kind. -Cutters -Adhesives -Background: Background, hard cardboard -Sample studies
11 Studies of week 9 will be continued. Informing students about the studies that will be carried out in week 12 and necessary materials for them.
12 a- Studies of week 10 will be continued. Evaluation of the designs made.
13 a-Determining on the unit based on the geometric images and lines that have no variability or wooden and/or any objects produced, then multiplicating (in number and in size) the unit that has been determined and transformation of it into a new design. (Studies for making difference with the same unit-module) (UYG-15) EUCLID GEOMETRYİ and :– Square: Rhythm – Repetition in order / aspect – Balance - Line: Rhythm – Repetition in order / aspect – Balance - Circle: Rhythm – Repetition in order / aspect – Balance STRUCTURE -Suitable equipment to shape the selected material if necessary: - Cutters - Adhesives - Background
14 a- Studies of week 12 will be continued.
15 a- Studies of week 10 will be continued. General Evaluation. b- Implementation of the subject of week 12 according to the field of study ( İÇT, GRF, MOD, ENT, MİM) (UYG- 16) -Getting prepared for the end of term commission exam -Material and equipment suitable for the field of study. -preparation for the end of term commission exam
