“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” – Pablo Picasso

What are you doing with your art that is new and scary? Do not be afraid to EXPERIMENT!

Art Foundations 2D: Continue to work on PATTERN Chapter (8), Continuous Line Contour Drawings – Sketchbook… 2 Today!
Frank Korb - Contour Line Portrait - 20 minutes
Frank Korb – Contour Line Portrait – 20 minutes
  1. (3.3) Know about the creation of images and explain why they are important (contour line).
  2. (1.4) Solve visual challenges using analysis (element of Line).

If you were a type of pattern, what type of pattern would you be? Why?


Drawing: Grid and Value – Work to MATCH the VALUES in one box with the intent of SIMPLIFYING the colors to one level of grey. – THIS IS TOUGH.

Here is a great example of the potential for the grid and the portrait!

CLOSE up on a CLOSE drawing… LOL


  1. (6.3) Use the process of grids and compare it with other disciplines. (How can OTHER people in OTHER fields use the grid to ORGANIZE or BREAK UP IDEAS AND SPACES?)
  2. 1.4 create, and solve visual challenges using 1.4.1 analysis (breaking up the artwork / subject matter to basic elements).

 What is difficult about the process? Make sure your neighbor is correct in the ratio and the measurements. What squares are successful and what squares are not? What is successful and not successful about your neighbor’s drawing?

  1. (2.1) Form criticism about YOUR ART that accomplish personal or other meanings.
  2. (3.3) Describe the creation of YOUR IMAGES and IDEAS and explain why they are of value (if they are not of value – were they worth doing to begin with?)
