BUILT METROPOLIS ASSIGNMENT
Virtual Walking Tour
Greenwich Village has been through many transitions of architectural styles since the first structures were built in the late 1700s. The art community developed in the middle of the 19th century. Now, the popular and active New York City neighborhood is referred to as “the Village.” The location contains a wide range of historic architecture that spans the years. For example; Late Victorian, Second Empire, Mansard architectural styles and more. Here are the types of architecture you can expect to find while walking the streets of Greenwich Village.
MYTHS AND LEGENDS ASSIGNMENT
Drypoint and plexiglass- The transparent surface is made of plastic which scratches easily and therefore serves well when creating drypoint prints. Lines engraved into the plate with an etching needle will catch the ink. The inking process involves covering the surface then removing ink from the smooth plate. The remaining ink is left to rest in the incisions. You can make 20-25 prints from the same plate.
Homework (part 2)
COMPLETE A TWO PAGED SHORT READING on Seven of the Most Popular Legends attached (here.)
2. Based on your choices from the readings, create two interpretative drawings (I will post the sizes). The images will serve as tracings for your printing process.
Once the two drawings are complete, put them on tracing paper or scan and print them in reverse. This way the etchings will not print out backward when run through the printing press.

Human-Centered Design Process
Custom made jewelry for your client
-Work in groups of three
-Interview your client
-Understand the client’s activities and interests to include a personal, symbolic element in the designs
-Create a concept with the client in mind
-Keep in contact with each other between classes
-Draft sketches (brainstorm)
– In the end, you will have two designs
-Create two (paper, string, tape,) prototypes
Historical, cultural, and modern jewelry designs, as well as materials you have around you, can serve as inspirations for the bracelet or necklace you design and make for your peer. Research on your own to come up with desired outcomes.
1. Images of Egyptian and Baroque historical jewelry below show how their style and construction have remained a timeless inspiration for the way jewelry is designed and made today.
2. The modern designs below reflect the trends and examples of what can be made as laser cut outcomes. The materials will differ as metal has its limitations as an option with the laser cutter. (The list of materials you can use when laser cutting.)
Egyptian historical bracelets and necklaces for men and women
Baroque historical bracelets and necklaces
