Option Art
 Art education involves instruction in how we see, interpret and make sense of visual stimuli. It requires an understanding of how others interpret the messages of art that is produced and art requires an education in the use of traditional and contemporary tools, material and media.


Art Class
Please come to class with the following materials:
  • PENCIL/ERASER/RULER
  • PENCIL CRAYONS
  • MARKERS (Black especially - assorted widths of tips)
  • "SKETCHBOOK" 

Your sketchbook is a visual diary, a place to develop technical skill, a place to plan your artwork, and a place to take notes for your art course. Keeping a sketchbook will make you more aware of your surroundings and increase your drawing skills. Your perception and abilities will improve with every drawing. Like any other skill, drawing well takes PRACTICE.

Each sketchbook entry will be worth 10 points. There are a total of 10 Sketchbook Assignments for this Semester.

A sketchbook or equivalent is required for class. If students do not have a book, the assignments can be handed in on drawing paper that students can get from me.                  Ms. Gazdewich

 

 

SPEND AT LEAST 30 MINUTES ON EACH ENTRY. 

Avoid doing the entries at the last minute.  Try to relax as you draw and enjoy yourself.  Many artists listen to their favorite music while they work to block outside distractions.

 

USE ANY ART TOOLS YOU WISH, unless the entry tells you otherwise. 

 

USE ONLY ONE PAGE FOR EACH ENTRY.  If you make a mistake, hide it inside your drawing or just ignore it. 

DO NOT CROSS OUT MISTAKES!  Do not use the front and back of the sketchbook page unless you absolutely need to extend your drawing onto that side of the page.

 

REMEMBER IT IS IMPORTANT TO DO EVERY ENTRY.  Be creative and have fun!  If you do each entry thoughtfully and to the best of your ability, you will always have a good grade on your sketchbook. Description: Macintosh HD:Users:fmcsdstaff:Desktop:clip-art-4835.jpg

Your sketchbook is a visual diary, a place to develop technical skill, a place to plan your artwork, and a place to take notes for your art course.

Like any other skill, drawing well takes PRACTICE.

 

Write your full name on the front cover so that it can be easily read – Personalize it. You might also want to write your name on the inside cover so that your book can be returned to you if you misplace it.

Remember Effort of Drawing – A 2-minute drawing looks like a 2-minute drawing.

·      Your drawing ability will only improve with effort.

·      If you use less than 30 minutes to complete a drawing do another.

·      Technical difficulty, growth of drawing skill

  Originality and Creativity in Interpretation

·      Draw from life and your imagination

·      Show an interesting and original point of view

Variation of Drawings – Make them look different

·      Drawings should show experimentation and growth from one to the next.

Composition – Use the page of your sketchbook.

·      Utilize a viewfinder to find a good composition before starting.

·      Avoid a centered, bulls-eye type composition

·      Have your drawing go beyond the edges of the page.

*    Always include the background or environment
