Hey bloggers,

Today i have made a digital notan with a Theme. My theme was ocean animals,  I loves this because ot really easy and exciting. This task only took about 6 minutes and the end results came out fantastic .

History of Notan artwork

The concept of notan made its way into Western art after 1854 when Japan opened its ports to trade, resulting in many examples of Japanese art being seen in Europe. The idea of notan became part of art education after Arthur Wesley Dow included it in his 1899 book on art instruction

Have you ever seen a notan artwork before???



SLJ – Digital Notan – #17 – Kickstart

Hey bloggers,

Today i have made a Digital Notan! The Digital Notan was inspired by random stuff because when i make art it mostly likey random! This activity was really easy and also the end results come out so cool!

What is Notan art??

Notan is a Japanese design concept involving the play and placement of light and dark elements as they are placed next to the other in the composition of art and imagery. Originally notan works were created with ink and paper. Ink would be diluted to create darker or lighter brushstrokes, while the white paper provided the light backdrop; the negative space. Using this method and carefully considering the balance of their compositions, Japanese artists create Notan art.

Welcome back to another SLJ post. For today kickstart task . I got to make a trick shot obstacle course ! The materials i use to make the trick shot obstacle course were 12 or 11 books , a nail light , a cup and ball . I found this task challenging because sometime when i was trying out the trick shot obstacle course the ball would roll far from the cup so i had to change the positioning   of the cup to were i would think the ball would go  but the next time i did try it would slow down and fall closer to table  , far from the cup. But in the end i manged to get the ball inside the cup!  Come bk for the step up version !I hope you like the video I made!
