Intro to Art: Cross Contour Lines (Hand Exercise)

  • SWBAT identify the various ways to properly use line when creating both a CONTOUR and CROSS CONTOUR LINE DRAWING
  • SW orally ask any questions about the project demonstration they may have using complete sentences.

Below you will find some of the notes we have taken in the past few classes periods, be sure to copy down, or screenshot/save these to use as a reference later on.

In today’s class, we are going to look a little deeper into the idea of CROSS CONTOUR LINES by investigating where and how these “movement lines” should go when drawing or mapping out an object.  Later on in the class period, you will be asked to put your understanding of this element to the test by using the reference sheet below to create some Cross Contour Hand sketches by yourself.

Drawing: Pen and Ink 

  • SWBAT identify the various ways to properly use PEN and INK by practicing value techniques in their sketchbook.
  • SW orally ask any questions about the project demonstration they may have using complete sentences.

We started yesterday discussing the specific use of pen and ink by making a few value scales in class.  Today we will continue that work by studying the way we can use LINE to create value tones in different ways.

All class work will be completed in your sketchbook, with an emphasis being put on experimentation.  We will be referring back to these drawing methods on an upcoming drawing that could possibly be used for your end of the semester portfolio.
