They show real snow crystals that fell to earth in northern Ontario, Alaska, Vermont, the Michigan Upper Peninsula, and the Sierra Nevada mountains of California. This snowflake has fernlike stellar dendrites - the branches of the stellar crystals have so many side branches that they look like ferns. These are the largest snow crystals, often falling to earth with diameters of 5mm or more. Despite their large size, these are single crystals of ice - the water molecules are lined up from one end to the other. Slide 7 My First Conch Find! Posted by HurleyGurley of flickr Image lit with an LED Slide 8 Radial Symmetry in Graphic Design Slide 9 This fluid black and white design appears on iStockphoto. A similar stylized design would be a great AP 2D art piece. As is, this would not be suitable for the AP Drawing Portfolio. The 2D portfolio is focused mainly on the principles of design. The AP Drawing portfolio focuses on mark-making and direct observation. It could be done by hand, using careful measurements to divide the pie slices. Then, a template, tracing paper, or light box to accurately repeat the design. Slide 10 Created in a software program called Kaleidoscope Kreator from original photographs. This is a 10 piece pie made up of mirror images. Think of pizza slices. A single images flip- flops as it is accurately reproduced, forming the complete circle.

Cheeks are snippets of abandoned original work. Suns rays are from a print of original works. Singleton Hippie Art Slide 13 I-Ching Yin-Yang Radial Patterning These images are from the Planetary Art Network's discourse on the relationship between the Genetic Code, the Law of Time, and the I-Ching What does it remind you of?

Slide 14 Photographs of Radial Compositions Slide 15 Summer Peace posted by just give me peace on Flickr Dip, Slip, Trip, Fall or Stumble Race, Run, Walk or Roll Doesn't matter how you got here Here is where you are meant to be and here, you can find peace... Slide 16 Colored pencils from metu.edu.tr AP 2D Photographers Please strongly consider creating your own radial design, lighting it, and photographing it. Play with the location of the focal point. Unusual objects will have the most artistic voice. Wander through the grocery store or the dollar store to discover multiple objects for little investment. Pay attention to the details in the composition. The background color can make a huge difference. Can you make some type of commentary with your selected subject? Slide 17 Radial Composition with human figure. Notice the images are not exactly the same. Slide 18 Lemons Mary Meyer cast wax, acrylic paint, wood The formal elements of dissection and balance often emerge in my imagery and are of great importance. These recurring themes speak of curiosity, scrutiny, and a fascination with bilateral symmetry; a characteristic so prevalent throughout the natural world. Mini sculptures organized in a somewhat radial layout and photographed.
