VISUAL AND ORAL PRESENTATION
ON A CERAMICIST
OR A CERAMIC TRADITION

 

There is a rubric for this project. You need to include:

 

VISUAL presentation (on a piece of poster board):

1) Headline with your artist's name or the ceramic tradition

2)
5 images of work by the artist or the ceramic tradition

3)
1 page biography of the artist/tradition,
SINGLE SPACED and TYPED 12 pt font, and NO PLAGIARISM !!!
Research online and in books, but make sure the biography is all written by you. It needs to include the following:

•  basic info (birth date/general dates and location, etc.)
•  how did the ceramicist start making pottery (schooling, etc.)
•  what are the important themes/ideas in the work
•  what is the style (smooth, minimal, detailed, rough, precise, handmade, political, traditional, etc)
•  what other traditions/ceramicists influenced the work
•  what makes the work important or unique in the history of ceramics
•  what political/economic/historical factors influenced the work
•  list all sources used on a separate sheet (web urls and articles/books)


4)
Half page evaluation of one of the images
SINGLE SPACED and TYPED 12 pt font

•  Talk about principles and elements of design: line, shape, space, value, balance, etc.
•  Talk about the three dimensional qualities of the object.
•  Does the object have a center of interest? What is it and why does it capture your interest?
•  Describe the mood of the work. Why does it have that mood?
•  What do you like best about the object?


5) 8x10 collage based on the ceramicist's work

•  similar in terms of style or in terms of the subject matter
•  for example, if you did a project about the ceramics of a Native American tribe that made bright colorful pots that were decorated based on images from nature, you could make a collage:
----- that was bright anc colorful (style)
----- that had images from nature
• 
DO NOT USE PICTURES OF THE ACTUAL CERAMIC WORK IN THE COLLAGE


ORAL presentation

•  You must present the poster board and the information on it to the rest of the class

•  Presentations are 5 minutes long

•  Talk about the ceramicist's life or the tradition, the artwork, your own personal reaction to the artwork, and the images of the work.

What I will be looking for

•  presentation contains all the required items/information
•  poster is clean and neat
•  collage is creative
•  information in the presentation is well organized
•  spelling and grammar of text is accurate
•  presentation shows understanding of concepts or topics being depicted in the images.
•  final result represents your full potential.
•  the oral presentation must be well organized and rehearsed.
