For this week’s sketch, you will do two drawings. One will be to render something made of paper. The other, will be in contrast, to draw something made of metal. I want you to compare a hard surface to a soft surface. It is up to you how you show these two sketches. You can draw them individually or you can combine them to create your own interesting composition. Please define what juxtaposition is and take that word into consideration while creating. Have fun, spend the time necessary, and take pride in your work.

Please create or recreate a reflective surface for this week’s assignment. I would like you to either push realism or to practice the style you are using for your art history poster. Please consider your composition. Take a step back and take a look at the form you are creating, the reflective surface (what is being reflected) and the overall unity of the sketch.

For this weekly photo you are to photograph silverware. You can use any cooking/ eating utensil. Be creative with your compositions. Try to incorporate your style of photography with this subject matter. Have fun! I can’t wait to see what you come up with. 10 photo minimum. Due Thursday, March 12th.
Remember- I am no longer accepting late work.

For this week’s sketch assignment, you need to draw a clothed figure. We are focusing on the folds of the clothing. Notice the highlights, shadows, and take special note which way you apply your marks to the paper. A strong light source will be your friend.
Refer to gesture drawing for the figure and then perfect the form of the figure so that it looks like the person is wearing the clothes- just just copy and pasted on.

For your next assignment, I want you to explore EXTREME PERSPECTIVES! You should be taking pictures from a ‘worms eye view,’ a ‘birds eye view,’ and any other extreme perspective.
Here are some examples of forced perspective:
Without copying these ideas…explore interesting perspectives on your own… what can you come up with? Show me something I haven’t seen before.

This week’s sketch is to use two-point perspective to create some sort of city or landscape. You need to combine SURREALISM into your realistic drawing of space/ perspective. Have fun and try to find your own style preference and illustration flares.
Be sure to put in time and effort! These are small mini-projects…I should see your full range of capability.
Look up what Surrealism means and find artists that work in this style to be inspired by. DO NOT COPY other people’s ideas. You should start looking at Salvador Dali and Rene Magritte. On top of these two artists, please look up an additional two artists and put them in your sourcebook with the typical basic information, background information, and critique of their work. Tell me what interests you or does not aesthetically please you.

Read and review pages 15-25 in your Perspective packet. Apply what you learned with 1 and 2 point perspective to create an open-ended sketch for this week. Last week, you drew your favorite part of your house- showing me what you know about perspective. This week, I am leaving it open for you to draw what you want (FROM LIFE) and apply the perspective technqiues from your book. Please reflect and self-critique as always. I am looking for quality and completed sketches. There should be value, a thoughtful composition, and details.
