Art Classes

Art I – continue current project on 2 point perspective.  6 – 8 shapes in 2 point perspective, grounded by landscape patterned drawing at base.  Wide variety of patterns to create a texture like appearance throughout. Composition must have an overall theme.  You will have to start on a new sheet of paper that you have available at home. 2 complete drawings are required with divergent themes.  Materials needed: paper, straight edge, pencil, eraser.

5th block classes – create a 3-d sculpture based on a portrait bust. This means the head, neck and shoulders must be constructed.  Proper proportions must be intact. The materials used will be considered a found objects project. Basically whatever you have laying around at your disposal.  Use a wide variety of materials if possible i.e. wire, cardboard, tape, homemade paper mache, anything that is nonhazardous will work. It may be slightly abstract and that perfectly fine.  Size requirement is life size example.

3rd Block – Start 2nd nine weeks composition continuing on selected theme from class.  When we return it should be a completed version ready to enlarge to an 18×24.  Full color required and high detail.
