  • G: D.D.Cr.12.h: Make Develop unique, well crafted works of art utilizing deliberate choice of media, tools, and techniques.
  • A: Today we are exploring the pace you are at with the portrait. This was HOMEWORK and I will be checking the work thus far. NAME ON THE BOTTOM of the paper – or top – or side… readable for sure. As I am walking around checking for completion of the contour line drawings, please get out your handbook and write out – week 7 – what were the areas that you were especially happy about and explain why. Where are you struggling in the process and explain why you are having a hard time… how did you resolve the issue? Today… we begin the value in the portrait. Today we add all of the types of mark making we studied in the first weeks. Look back and review the techniques… Where are you going to start? Remember to NOT START DARK! Build up to that. Also… do not just work in ONE AREA at a time – this will cause paralysis as one tends to get caught up in the small details and not think about the larger picture.
  • G: What was the success in the process today? Do you have a but of value throughout the entire image?
