INTRO TO ART FALL 2013
Intro Assignment #1
Elements and Principles Composition: In class, we thoroughly covered and practiced the elements and principles of design. After studying, practice, review, and quiz, students were able to create their own original elements and principles composition using colored pencil.
Cubism with Oil Pastel
Students studied the Cubism movement in art. We looked at cubist artist Paul Cezanne, Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, and Marcel Duchamp.
To complete this assignment, students moved around a still life composed of various instruments and vases. They were to draw the still life from multiple angels using basic shapes to define the forms. Students were encouraged to create contrast within their work by exaggerating the size and shapes of the instruments. When the composition was complete, students used oil pastels to add color and value to their composition.
