Capitol Conference Art Exhibition – UW – Madison / Pyle Center AND 50 Sheets of Paper – WUHS

Capitol Conference Art Exhibition – UW Madison / Pyle Center

50 Sheets of Paper – Click HERE to see the Album.

These drawings were created by the Advanced Drawing class with two stipulations, they needed to base their drawing on a sense of observation and they needed to use 50 sheets of paper. The rest was up to them. Our artists chose from a wide range of topics and ideas – all personal to them. Using direct observation, symbolism, and abstraction, our artists have created a wide variety of images all at various skill levels and approaches for you to enjoy.

Studio Art 360: Sketchbook Tuesday

2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan.

What are 3 things about your SKETCHBOOK that you are VERY PLEASED with? What are 3 things you WANT TO IMPROVE ON?

Color: Begin by drawing out three 7” x 4” FORMAT BOXES on three pages in your sketchbook. Divide your format box up by using 7 straight or curved lines. Do the same on the next two pages. On the first page, use one color scheme (page 29 in your handbook)of watercolor paints and fill the spaces in. On the second page, choose another color scheme and do the same. Lastly, on the third page – use whatever colors you want. When they are all dry – either define the lines with black sharpie marker (thick / thin / variety) or crayons that are of similar color scheme. When you evaluate this assignment – consider the successfulness of the works that have a specific color scheme in comparison to the one without a specific color scheme.
