Weekly Assignments Due Thursday, February 12, 2015

Studio Art: Read and apply pages 8-14 into a perspective drawing of a room or area in your house. Be sure to use all of the elements and principles, push your own ability, and to show me that you understand your reading based on what you are drawing. Take note of your work ethic. When I question your time and effort, make sure you are at a 100%. Reflect in your sourcebook appropriately.

Advanced Studio Art: Using your own original photograph, or creating from observation, show me that you understand what atmospheric perspective is. This open-ended sketch can be of anything you want, as long as you are using your own photograph or looking from observation. I am checking for your knowledge on atmospheric perspective, so be sure to emphasize this in your sketch. Reflect in your sourcebook appropriately.

Digital Photography: Re-defining your style. At the beginning of the year, I had you write down what style you were interested in for photography. Now, that you have practiced, learned, and have seen examples of other photography styles, I want you to re-explore what you are best at and what you enjoy. Please submit a minimum of 10 photos in a presentation method. You will want to take many more photos than this though, in order to narrow down for the presentation. Be sure to incorporate rules of composition, the elements and principles, and focusing on your own personal style. Reflect in your sourcebook appropriately.

Graphic Design: You will need to research two graphic designers that are of interest to you. Please critique their work using the appropriate art criticism steps. Now, take note of what is their signature style (what element or principle stands out the most? What ‘makes’ their work? etc.) Please create your own design, advertisement, or work of art borrowing this element or principle that this artist uses as a stand out in their work. You will NOT copy this designer’s work, but merely be inspired by them. Reflect in your sourcebook appropriately.
