Part of Lesson Plan: David Hockney Inspired Artwork (Photo Collages)
Activity Overview / Details
SLIDE 4: David Hockney Bio- Ask another students to read this slide.
SLIDE 5: Portrait of David Hockney
SLIDE 5-11: Hockney photo collage examples- In slides 6-10 point our how the artist leaves evidence of himself in the images. He does this by including his shadow, shows, or even his orange peels (in slide 6) to show the viewer that he was part of the scene. This is a recurring thing that happens in many of his photo collages. Take time to discuss each of Hockney's Artworks. What is successful about it? Where the image was taken. What Hockney included in the artwork as far as background and subject.
SLIDE 12: Description of photo collage style conveyed in slides 13-15-Ask a new student to read this allowed. Then elaborate on the concept and point out evidence of it in the next three slides.
SLIDE 13-15: Photo collages that show duration of time- Point out how each image shows more than just one moment, but several moments. An event is documented then pieced together in one artwork for the viewer to see. Usually, a movie is needed to show action, but Hockney is showing action in these three photo collages.
SLIDE 16: Description of photo collage style conveyed in slides 17-19- Read this description out loud. Talk about how this concept was very similar to cubism in that cubist would often shoe an object from several different views.
SLIDE 17-19: Examples of photo collages with multiple viewpoints.
SLIDE 20: Painting done by artist of his mother- Use this image to show difference in his painting and his Photo Collages.
