Art Foundations: Chapter 4 AND Chapter 1 – Contour Line and Gesture Drawings.

Continuous Line Self – Portraits – of Mr. Korb – Many solutions to the same problem… We are going to do a lot of self-portraits so we can find the one that works best.

Goals:

  1. (1.1.1) Apply art materials (markers and pencils) being aware of your skills.
  2. (1.4) Solve visual challenges using analysis (element of Line and breaking the face apart).

What is the most challenging aspect of the portrait / line? What emotions have you chosen to represent yourself? Why? What variety of lines do you hope to use in the process of creating your self-portrait?
