Begin Still Life Drawings
Students will learn techniques that are vital in the creation process. We will begin with drawing 8 contour drawings of a still life. This is an exploration of materials.
Next each student will choose seven drawings to apply a variety of materials to including, oil pastels, pencil, pen and ink, collage, watercolor, charcoal and . Students will make a value scale for each material.
Of those seven drawings the students will then choose six to mount onto a black piece of paper for a finished look.
This project will meet the National Visual Arts Standard #1 Understanding and applying media, techniques, and processes.
