4.15- Form and Function II Architecture and CAD

Grades: 4th Grade
Subjects: Art

Student Instructions

In this lesson, we will learn about the history of Greek architecture. We will learn the difference between Doric, Ionic and Corinthian columns. You will draw at least 1 traditional column using the links below. You will design 1 original column using the shapes from Tinkercad. Once done, please upload your drawings to Seesaw. 1. Watch the video provided. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5CKzC4iYPY 2. Review the 3D forms listed from last week and in Tinkercad. Required forms are: box, cylinder, roof, cone, rounded roof, pyramid, sphere, and half sphere. All examples of forms can be found in Tinkercad and on the attached template. 3. Practice drawing doric, ionic or corinthian columns. You may draw 1 or all 3! Here are some additional links to excellent tutorials: Doric Columns: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7e5a9tcszTQ (NOTE- The artist accidentally calls the columns ionic) Ionic Columns: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=934zoQkE_hE Corinthian Columns: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hiw0TiQSnH0 4. Create your own column! Use BASIC shapes/3D forms to create your column. Start thinking about how you will create this column in Tinkercad. Use the shapes that you see in Tinkercad to drive the design of your column. IMPORTANT-- DESIGN ON PAPER-- DO NOT DESIGN IN TINKERCAD. 4.. Download Tinkercad from the portal, if you have not already done so. Sign in with your code or google address. Your teacher will advise you of their preference. Ask them! Vocabulary: CAD- Computer Aided Design, or Drawing. The use of computers to aid in creation, modification, analysis or optimization of design. 3D Form- A solid figure or an object or shape that has 3 dimensions- length, width, and height. 3D shapes have thickness and depth. Have fun! May the arts be with you! Mrs. Lukes
