Where are you hoping to run away to with your work?
Drawing: DRAW some NESTS!
2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.
What is your sense of OBSERVATION regarding the Bird’s nests? What is a quality of the nest that you could see as becoming an aspect of your drawing that would be worth your while to focus on during the next week or so? 3 – 5 thumbnails today – very focused – Look at your neighbors artwork as you move along.
WHAT TO DO? Pencil and observation. Drawing techniques and mark making. We are going to look specifically at LINE and VALUE / CONTRAST in these drawings. Whites / Blacks / Greys are the focus. Use of CHARCOAL will be coming up – mark making and removal of marks with erasers. Explore the use of the variety of Pencils that we have and how they can be used. Explore the different marks and erasing that we can do with the materials. Look at the different papers that are available. Really look at the idea of THE ELEMENTS and compositions that can be used.
What element have you looked at specifically in the beginning process? What is a successful aspect of the initial drawing that you have?
Studio Art 360: Still Life
2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan.
How DO you draw something in 3 dimensions? What are different techniques you know? What did you do successfully yesterday that you can continue with today? What is it you need to erase, change, resolve to make the drawing today even more successful.
What is one thing you are putting into your drawing of the 3D Forms that might be related to the ELEMENTS and PRINCIPLES as the building blocks of Art – things you really need to be aware of AS you are making art.
