Week of September 28-October 2, 2015

“Matisse makes a drawing, then he makes a copy of it. He copies it five times, ten times, always clarifying the line. He’s convinced that the last, the most stripped down, is the best, the purest, the definitive one; and in fact, most of the time, it was the first. In drawing, nothing is better than the first attempt.”
- Pablo Picasso


Monday of this week the students will finish up their rope drawings.  We will have a critique on both the drawings and their sketchbook assignment that was due this past Friday on Tuesday.  

On Wednesday we will begin a new project focusing on the simplicity of line.  We will be looking at the work of Picasso and Matisse to serve as inspiration for this project.  Our subject matter will be "Faces that are interesting to us".  After creating their line drawings, they will translate that drawing into print form and then transition it from 2-D to 3-D through the use of wire.


  1. Find 3 pictures of people that you find interesting.  The pictures need to be printed out or already on paper.  They are DUE WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 30th. 
  2. The 3 Line Drawings will be DUE by the end of the period on FRIDAY OCTOBER 2nd.  This is Part 1 of the Line Project.
