Formal Drawing Assignments

Done

1

Have Class Fee ($20) 

2

Plan of your bedroom (to scale)

Still life! Set up a few items, try drawing them with sight measurement! No worries, just see how it goes, you are learning new visual vocabulary with your hand and eyes!

3

Drawing One Choose an object in your home. It can be fairly complex if you are feeling confident. If you choose simply shaped items, put a few together. Draw these with a blind contour line, using your pencil as we did in class and try not to peek!

Drawing Two Do a negative space drawing of the exact same item(s) at the exact same angle.

4

Drawing One: ON GOOD PAPER FOR FORMAL CRITIQUE: Tone drawing: draw a contour drawing and add tone to bring out the shadows, mid-tones, and highlights. Fear not: this is more to show me what you need to learn, not to make you upset.

Drawing Two: ON GOOD PAPER FOR FORMAL CRITIQUE: Using the simple technique we covered today, draw several cubes in space in the same composition. I will score on neatness and novelty.

5

Drawing One: Still Life with Tone: I am looking to see you develop more detail and accuracy in your depiction of the still life. After you are done, try to take a photo of the scene from the same point of view and we will compare it next week! Email me the photo.

Drawing Two: Cylinders in One Point Perspective: I recommend you use your non-photo pencils for this! I want to see the drafts you do of this before you finalize your homework!

One Point Perspective Imagined Scene (On Newsprint): Keep it clean! Protect it with newsprint as you come to school.
