Intro to Art: Using SPACE to Create Stencils
- Gain an understanding for the use of different styles of SPACE by altering what marks are present on a piece of paper.
- Create a ONE COLOR stencil by using letters/numbers from an in class demonstration to make POSITIVE SPACE from NEGATIVE SPACE.
That’s a mouthful to type…
Anyways, we are going to start in with our first project (I know, it has been a long time coming), and start creating stencils much like the Banksy piece you see above.
REFLECTION QUESTION: Throughout this demonstration today, and the exercises today/tomorrow, I’d like you to think about what the term SPACE means to you, and the connection or relationship between POSITIVE and NEGATIVE SPACE you may have noticed.
Adv. Drawing: Refining the Gesture Drawing Process
- APPLY your ability to create a series of quick sketches from a model or pose by emphasizing the BODY of an image in 30 second BEAN drawings
