  • 1.2Ad: Choose from a range of materials and methods of traditional and contemporary artistic practices, following or breaking established conventions, to plan the making of multiple works of art and design based on a theme, idea, or concept.
  • What is the ONE thing you are learning about the figure at this point? Even though we had to rethink the idea from Monday – in order to slow down – have you thought about different materials? Gesso? Gouache? Acrylics? Watercolor? Pastel?

Have you looked at NEW materials to introduce today? Gesso? Gouache? Acrylics? Watercolor? Pastel? Why have you introduced that? What might it do for your drawing?
