This week students collected 12 thumbnail sketches for future development. Once again, emphasis was placed on CODE, but we are also tackling the topic of value (full vs. high contrast) as we progress.
In local art news, Krannert Art Museum will have a public opening of their fall exhibition on Thursday evening, 8/27 at 6pm. I encourage you to join in the celebration if your schedule permits, or to see the exhibitions(s) sometime during the run. Up to three extra credit points per student can be earned by emailing me a creative selfie with one of the Otterness sculptures at the museum. (You must discover where they are.) This offer is open until 12/12/15.
In class we will also be completing a group puzzle drawing, emphasizing full value ranges. Below is a little teaser of a work made by the same artist whose work we will draw.
Homework: (Due Monday) Select one of your thumbnail drawings to expand (at least 6″x6″) into a high contrast drawing. This means only black and white. Minimize lines…think about shapes. You may embellish the drawing to make it more successful as a high contrast drawing.
