Drawing Part 2

Drawing, Values, Color, Your Choice of Imagery

For the next four classes we will be going through the steps in the creation of a painting building upon what we’ve developed so far throughout the semester.

Week 9. You must bring your source imagery ( must be your image! ) and we will create a detailed drawing of it on a large piece of watercolor paper/masonite

Week 10. You will do a value of the drawing using black, greys, and white.

Week 11. You will mix colors to match your values.

Week 12. We will finish the works.

Outside of class you are also expected to continue working on your Self Directed Projects so be prepared to show what you’ve been working on out of school as well.

In the second half of this drawing course you will be engaging in a series of small in class assignments, as well as one project which you will be working on throughout the entire semester. The two assignments will run concurrently, therefore it is important to create a strong concept and area of exploration for the entirety of the semester as it pertains to your Self Directed Project, as well as be able to complete weekly assignments into a variety of subjects exploring media, composition, color and technique. We will be looking critically both at the nuts and bolts of contemporary artists, as well as try to discern the problem exploration involved in the creation of their conceptual framework.
