Please grab hold of a candy from the pile in the classroom. Eat the candy and then fold, crease, wrinkle the wrapper a few times and overlap a bit of it. Use a VIEWFINDER (provided) trace out the empty space on a page in your sketchbook (you’ll be drawing in that space later). Choose a PORTION of the folded candy bar image and, using the VIEWFINDERS (look at the new compositions and simplify it), and draw it out to the best of your ability (HB – Hard Pencil to start, colored pencil to finish). The ideas are all up to you. What are your thoughts about how you can draw this object?

DRAWING: Kandinsky and YOUR DRAWING

How does this work relate to 1) Kandinsky and his movements? 2) Your song? We are going to be WRITING an ARTIST STATEMENT (over break) and PHOTOGRAPHING this work (DURING CRITIQUES) and OVER SPRING BREAK make some time to work on your GOOGLE SLIDESHOW PAGE (I’ll explain that over the next couple of days). BTW – FIND YOUR SONG ON YouTube! Wednesday we begin with a final critique reflection – then onto the ORAL CRITIQUE – BE READY TO TALK – FAST and FURIOUS!
