Week of November 9th-13th, 2015

This week we will be focusing on how to use different techniques of shading in order to create Form in our drawings.  We will begin work on a new drawing assignment using colored pencils to recreate Lego forms.  We will work on really using the colored pencils in an elevated way instead of merely filling in spaces.  We will focus on layering and blending in order to create accurate shading.

These are the Sketchbook Assignment Options for the 2nd Quarter:

Everyone will have to pick 2 to turn in by the end of the 2nd quarter.  You will receive deadlines.  Any additional assignments finished will be considered extra credit.  
Remember to create a good finished composition.

    Draw something that represents your favorite song
    Cut out 5 objects/people from a magazine. Then reassemble them in an interesting and creative way that is completely unlike what they look like previously.  Glue them down and then create a background using whatever material works with the images.  (Look at Surrealism)
    Draw a landscape that shows your favorite weather.
    Draw a piece of popcorn (and enlarge it) and concentrate on the shading to show form.
    Draw tree bark up close using colored pencils.
