Art Foundations

Oldenburg and Gehry, together at last. Click on the image to see more of Oldenburg and van Bruggen’s work!


  1. (1.2.2 and 3) Create 2 point perspective drawings that demonstrate an understanding of how your ideas relate to technique and process.
  2. (5.1) Identify the intentions and purposes in creating 2 point perspective / Values.

7th Hour – Same Goals – Different Activity:

  1. Consider the images of the city / neighborhood / Interior of Room that you looked at yesterday in class. The images are available HERE also.
  2. What ideas can you develop for the THEME of your city? How can you incorporate it into the drawing? Work in your sketchbook if you have to.
  3. How are you going to include all of the images / ideas that are required into your drawing?
  4. What is the FOCAL POINT of your drawing? What is the main focus you are going to focus on and how will it relate to the other aspects in the city / neighborhood / interior room?
  5. TODAY – work to get at least the 5 required buildings / large shapes into the space provided. NOT THE DETAILS but rather the basics, the walls, the height, the depth… how does one building relate to the buildings around it?
  6. If you can, begin to work in the SIDEWALKS or its comparison in the interior drawing. How does it fill the space? How does it interact with your buildings? How BIG or SMALL are they int he space provided?
  7. LINK TO REQUIREMENTS: HERE as well as the handouts that have been provided.

END OF CLASS: Review with neighbors the progress of the chiaroscuro and the proper use of 2 point perspective. What are the big challenges you are facing with the buildings?

Day two in the hallways with oil pastels for sure… what is the challenge NOT working in the space of the studio?
