#FigureDrawing in the #Studio – #GoFigure

“If you don’t like change, you’ll like irrelevance even less” General Eric Shinsek

AP Studio Art and Advanced Drawing: RELAX and FIGURE DRAW



  • 2.2Ad: Demonstrate understanding of the importance of balancing freedom and responsibility in the use of images, materials, tools, and equipment in the creation and circulation of creative work.

Larger Drawing Goals:

  • Observation (80% – 92% time looking), Concentration, Slow Drawing
  • Focus on the figure, Proportions, Scale, Sighting In
  • Full Page, Composition
  • AP: Now that we are done with the AP Testing – time to move forward. Rather than the initial project I had planned – let’s team up with the Advanced Drawing Class for the next week but take it that next step. What is it about the drawing of the figure that you have become rather confident with?
  • AdDraw: What is it about the figure that you are still uncertain about? The Drawings are ALL ABOUT LOOKING and I expect you to be working and FOCUSED 100% of the time.

AP: How are you approaching the drawing in your own fashion?

AdDraw: What aspect of the drawing do you find successful? Why?

Drawing: Get BACK to the Drawing – This week is IT!

  • 1.1Ac: Individually or collaboratively formulate new creative problems based on student’s existing artwork.  
  • Step back and look over your classmates work… what has been the biggest success from you classmate? Tell them and then write down 3 things you observed as successful in your classsmates work.

Four days left… Now that you are more aware of the use of pastels and covering larger spaces faster (large to small, general to specific) how do you feel the drawing has progressed?

Studio Art 360: DUE FIRST THING THURSDAY (then to mount and evaluate).
