Week of Sept. 12th-16th, 2016

We are finishing up the Altered Book Project this week.  Monday will be the last class day to work on the project.  The Book is DUE at the beginning of the class period on Tuesday.  We will have our first class critique and evaluation on Tuesday.  We will spend some time on how we talk about our art and how we can critically look at other people's work in order to help them evaluate their pieces.

Starting on Wednesday, we will begin work on Composition and what makes a piece strong.  As we work on these fundamentals we will also start work on Contour lines and how to use them to draw what we want.  We will do a number of warm up exercises using Blind contour lines and compositional space.  All this work will lead us into our first drawing project of the year by the end of the week.
