Sketch #6 Tension
Due Wednesday, November 20, 2013
Studio / Drawing&Painting:
This week’s sketch needs to embody the term tension. Please look up this word and define it for yourself. You can illustrate this literally or figuratively. (WORK AT YOUR LEVEL or beyond- push yourself!)
- Draw from life (the more you look and draw the better your sketch will be- if you are creating your own composition- draw each piece of the composition from life- as they may not be in front of you at the same time)
- Take up the entire page
- Create an interesting focal point, perspective, and view for us to see (make it interesting, not boring!)
- Complete a full value range using some techniques you learned this week in class.
- Enhance the texture using value
- Think about how your work is being interpreted
- The definition with a source should be in your sourcebook on the back of your sketch
- Write a small artist statement explaining your work
Look up the word tension and define it for yourself. Put this in your sourcebook with the source. You can illustrate this literally or figuratively.
- Your sketch should be done on the computer
- You should not use any imagery that is not your own (take your own pictures if necessary or draw your own illustrations)
- The design problem: I am the owner of a huge rubber band company- we need a new look. A look that makes rubber bands exciting and fresh. I’m not sure what I am looking for though, I am looking to you for some sample products. Please design me some samples of what the rubber bands could look like and what an ad for them might be.
Look up the word tension and define it for yourself. Put this in your sourcebook with the source. You can photograph this literally or figuratively.
- With your interpretation of the word tension, take interesting photographs that push composition, view point, texture, and contrast.
- Must present 5 photos or more. (Does not necessarily mean you have to have 5 different types of tension- maybe just five different view points, or two different subjects with different view points, etc.)
- Be creative with this and problem-solve how to create an artistic photograph of tension (using any of its meanings).
- You may need to set up a still life.
- Make sure your pictures are crisp and in focus where the focal point is supposed to be.
Follow the directions under which material you are working with.
