Disclosure Documents

2D Art, 3D Art, Art 1-Assignments No Comments

This is your first assignment! Disclosures are due on Friday, August 28 and are worth 20 points. I will not accept them after midterm because that’s just ridiculously late! If you are in 3D art, you will not be able to use any classroom equipment until the disclosure is turned in due to safety concerns.

Blind Contour Drawings

Art 1-Assignments No Comments

Hello! Our first drawing assignment was a blind contour drawing. The idea is to try to match the movements of your eye with the movements of your hand. So you don’t look at your drawing at all, but you look at the object you are drawing and you slowly move your pencil on the paper to match the movement of your eye slowly traveling around the object. We turned these in at the end of class but there are several missing! I have quite a few no-names that need to be claimed. If you forgot to turn it in, please turn it in on Monday. If you need to make it up because you were absent or you lost it, just do two blind contour drawings of objects in your house and spend about 5 minutes on each!
