Generally speaking, when I am gone – things run a lot faster and smoother in the art studio. I am not here to over-explain things. That said, I’ve included a couple of videos to help you get yourself on track. Studio Art 360 – the DEMO video is a GREAT one of dealing with a few examples – we will start out with our shoes and move on from there. Thanks for all the hard work and I will see you on Wednesday! – Korb
Drawing: Still Life and the ROUGH Drawing
Express: Learning to create works that convey an idea, a feeling, or a personal meaning.
This is the DAY of ROUGHS. This is the day to spend the ENTIRE PERIOD working out the FINAL DRAWING idea as a large final idea drawing – full page of the sketchbook – 46 minutes of FOCUSED DRAWING. This drawing is COLLECTED at the end of the hour so I can look it over and give it some feedback. I hope you DRAW. We will have a demo tomorrow on creating of the book pages with glue. How are you going to work this into your drawing? Thinking of the edges of the books? how are you defining the edges of forms DIFFERENTLY now than you have in the past? How are you thinking about the idea of COMPOSITION now that it has been spoken about?
Open your handbook to page 10 and in the GREY BOX, answer the following questions: Have you improved your drawings skills over the past few days? What do you feel you will be able to improve on regarding the skills you have currently?
Studio Art 360: Sketchbook Tuesday and Continuous Line Contour Drawings
2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan.
What do you feel is the value of practicing in a sketchbook? How can you see this as being a place that others (engineers, designers, architects, artists) might need as a valuable tool?
Sketchbook Assignment: Watch the video above to get a feel for the technique. As you draw – GO SLOWLY and work SILENTLY. Only let your hand move at the pace you eyes are travelling over the object (Shoe, Hand, Face…).
Sketchbook Assignment – Continuous Line Contour Drawings: We are going to use a single line to create observation based drawings of objects that we make use of and really think we understand. Start with your hand (4 minutes), then move onto your shoe (4 minutes), then using a mirror try your face (4 minutes), a volunteer of a classmate and their face – (4 minutes then SWITCH). If you want to do two sets of hands or two sets of shoes – go ahead. This sketchbook day WILL TAKE THE ENTIRE HOUR.
Open your HANDBOOK to page 10 and in the GREY BOX answer these questions: What were the BIGGEST Challenges and struggles you faced with this drawing? Were you able to work SLOW? I hope so. yo? Are you going to take it home and REFINE it?
AP Studio Art: Don’t forget to STAY FOCUSED – 25 works due MONDAY!
