Content Standard: Shows understanding of the materials and techniques
Performance Standard: Discriminates among various materials and techniques
Lesson Objective:
At the end of discussion the learners will be able to:
 Identify local materials used in creating art
(CAR11/12TPP-0c -e-11)


Topic: Local Materials Used As Applied To Contemporary Art
a. Curriculum Guide of Contemporary Philippine Arts From The Regions, Page 2
b. Ramirez, Veronica E., “Contemporary Philippine Arts From The Regions, VIBAL
Publishing, Chapter 1, Lesson 3, Materials Used in Contemporary Arts, page 12-15
Materials: Overhead projector, laptop and speaker, visual materials, meta-strips


A. Preliminary Activities
 Prayer
 Checking of Attendance and Collecting Assignment
 Physical Arrangement
 Review of the previous discussion/ lesson
o Can you recall the different subject matters of contemporary arts?
o What are the favorite subject matters of Filipino artists?
 Motivation (Five Minutes)
Task # 1. Picture Guessing Game. The class will be divided in to four groups
1. The teacher will display pictures of different art forms.
2. The students will guess what materials where used in art forms shown in the
picture. This is equivalent to 10 points
3. If the students find it hard to guess after one (1) minute, the teacher will give a
clue with jumble letters of the materials to be guessed. This is now only
equivalent to 5 points.
4. The group who accumulate with larger points will be announced as the winner.

B. Developmental Activities

 Activity (Five Minutes)

Task #2: Graffiti Wall
1. The class will be grouped into four.
2. Each group will pick one (1) picture and post on the wall they are assigned.
3. The teacher put all the meta-strips on the table wherein each meta-strips
contain a material used in contemporary art.
4. All the students from each group will have to post the right meta-strips under
the picture they were assigned.
Task #3: Group Discovery
Instructions: Each group will answer (based on the pictures they had pick earlier
from task #2) the following questions.
1. What are the materials or objects used by the artist?
2. Do these materials bring out the intended effect of the artist?
3. If the artist had chosen other materials, do you think the same effect will be
achieved? Why and how?
4. If you are the artist, will you used the same materials or you will use another?

o Video Presentation: Local Materials Used in Contemporary Arts
o Discussion of the topic:

Material is what the artwork is made of. It can also be a combination of objects
used in the artwork.

Contemporary artists salvage materials that can be recycled and made into creative
forms. They can make artworks that combine structure and wood and interact with
the wind to make music.

Some artists combine indigenous materials with textile and mount these on a
painted flat surface. Paper as an art medium is also explored by artists.

In outdoor sculpture, there is a lot of use of brass welded together and mounted on
concrete. Wood and glass are used for indoor sculpture. Found objects are
combined and are covered with resin.

Painting is no longer confined to canvass hung on the wall. They can also be found
on ceilings and floors. Some are done outdoors. Many local artists lead the
community or students in painting murals on walls to make a more pleasant
environment and raise consciousness towards environmental protection.

In architecture, there is an extensive use of glass and steel. Color combination is

either complementary or strong contrasting, such as orange and blue, red and
In performance art, artists use variety of props such as rope, plastic, textile, and
found objects. Paint is also used in body art.

Technology has also redefined art in many ways.

Because of the usefulness of new materials to art-making, artists have to upgrade
their skills and learn the use of computer programs and its applications.

Welding is also used for fabrication and building structure. This requires physical
strength and special tools. Some materials have chemical components that are
hazardous to the health such as resin, acid and fiberglass.

The availability and variety of materials and the possibilities offered by technology
expand the choices of artists. This is essential to the development of contemporary

o At the end of the discussion, the students will be asked about their
learning on the discussion.


The teacher will ask the students to make their own contemporary art using one
type of material they were ask to bring.


1. Choose one type of material and gather different types and forms of the
For example, if you want shells, there should be different kinds, sizes, color,
and shapes of shells. If you choose dried leaves, there should be a variety of
leaves. Cut bamboo sticks are also good to use if they are available.

2. Have the following materials ready:

o ½ illustration board
o water
o clear vanish
o glue and brush

3. Procedure:
a. Use either the white or the black side of the illustration board.
b. Using a pencil, plan the composition or arrangement of your objects or
materials. Do you want these to form a triangle in the middle, perhaps put the
similar colored items on one side, or maybe form an 8 form across the board?
c. Put the objects on the desired places and see how they relate to each other. Is
there a focal point? Do the smaller pieces surround the focal point? What do you
put in the background? Do the colors complement each other? Is there variety, at
the same time unity of forms?
d. When you are pleased with the arrangement of objects on your board, you are
ready to mount them. Pour some glue on a container and mix it with water, just
enough to reduce the thickness of the glue. Using a brush, put glue on the board
and affix the objects on their assigned space. When all of the objects are in place,
put one more layer of glue over the entire board, now with objects mounted on it.
You can use the brush to do this.
e. Leave your artwork to dry. When dry, you can cover it with a layer of clear
varnish to make it a bit shiny.


In a 1/4 sheet of paper, identify what local materials were used as shown in the pictures.


1. Search the Internet for artworks by Alfredo and Isabel Aquilizan, Pacita Abad,
or Impy Pilapil. Choose one artwork that you like.
2. Study the materials that the artist used for the artworks. Note how he/she put together the
materials to form an art piece. Then answer the following questions:
Describe the artwork.
 What is the subject matter of the artwork?
 What materials are used in the artwork?
 What are the dominant colors?
 How do the size of the repeated elements vary?
 How is texture used?
 Is it beautiful?
 Why do you think so?
