Drawing: Onto the LANDSCAPE and LINE / Mark Making Drawings

2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.

Look at ALL THREE drawings from yesterday. Of the 3, which one stands out as the STRONGEST? Which stands out as being the WEAKEST? WHY?

Translating the images from your PHOTOGRAPHS to the paper.

Get out the photographs and begin working on the drawing that has the most work to do. Start with a simple set of lines and then work towards more detail. Work for a variety of DISTINCT lines and VALUES. This is going to be about MARK MAKING.

End of the week and you have a small series of works that are all tied together. Name three things that you planned on doing to make this a series of works. How did you accomplish this idea that you set out to accomplish?


  • Anchor Standard 10: Synthesize and relate knowledge and personal experiences to make art.
  • Enduring Understanding: Through art-making, people make meaning by investigating and developing awareness of perceptions, knowledge, and experiences.
  • Essential Question(s): How does engaging in creating art enrich people’s lives? How does making art attune people to their surroundings? How do people contribute to awareness and understanding of their lives and the lives of their communities through art-making?

TODAY – June 20 (Happy Birthday Mr. Korb)

Develop Craft: Learning to use tools, materials, artistic conventions; and learning to care for tools, materials, and space.

Richard Diebenkorn (Ocean Park Series) is a good reference as we get things moving today. Simplification of space and shapes. Look for the larger areas first and then move into the smaller spaces. Nothing up close – BIG and HUGE spaces today. Pencil and Watercolors and then Oil Pastels (and Conté) are the mediums of the day. Consider the sense of value contrast as well as the sense of color and shape. We’re looking at a bit of abstraction – this is a challenge.

Sketching out ideas and SIMPLIFY the space. Today we DO NOT WORRY about any sense of ACCURACY and only look at the larger shapes and colors. Start there.

Step back and see what you’ve done – quick end of class look at the entire body of work we’re creating so far. Are you EXPERIMENTING?

#Tuesday – Where does #MrKorb GO?

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.
