Intro To Art: Lined Shape Challenge (Pen & Ink Blending)

  • SWBT combine elements from a previous work completed in class and their understanding of how LINED SHAPES are created, by building a creative and unique composition.
  • SW  able to respond to the PROJECT REQUIREMENTS, by prioritizing their daily tasks through filling out a DAILY GOAL FORM.

Over the last few days you have been introduced to a variety of different drawing methods, which at the end would provide you with a series of 3-D looking forms.  Now these forms might not necessarily have specific names (irregular shapes), however, by following the techniques practiced in class, you were now aware of what these flat shapes would look like if wrapped in “invisible string” (cross contour lines) and thus use a PEN & INK blending technique to make the shape look like a form.

Below you will find a link to the project requirements as you will have the next 6 days to work on in class.


Digital Multimedia: Self-Portrait Poster Challenge (double exposure)

  • STWBAT to produce a comprehensive and expressive digital poster, suitable for print,  using imagery that is specific to the project challenge requirements.
  • SW able to respond to the PROJECT REQUIREMENTS, by prioritizing their daily tasks through filling out a DAILY GOAL FORM.

Be sure to make note of the available resources available to you throughout the time that you have to work on this poster challenge.

Drawing: Using Value to Show FORM

  • SWBT demonstrate comprehension for identifying and producing VALUE by observing and studying a still-life.
  • SW orally ask questions about the techniques demonstrated during class time using content-specific vocabulary and complete sentences.

Throughout this week you will be working on your second observational drawing; the DRAPERY STUDY.  A study is simply a fancy way of saying that the “creative” part and/or “imaginative” work of trying to figure out your subject is done for you.  Simply put, you are observing a thing (like a still life) and STUDYING the qualities to represent in your drawing.

You are being tasked with creating a study that focuses on your ability to correctly identify VALUES and then recreate those values properly.  Your paper shape is a bit different here and there are a specific number of values that I am looking for, however, most importantly, I am looking at your ability to STUDY the fabric and its folds and your ability to recreate the value within your sketch.
