Mini Art History Reports –
Start on next week – work on them through the holiday – present them to class on April 18 – 19. Each presentation should be about seven minutes long and include ten images with explanation. Who is the Artist, when where did he/she live, what was the main motif of their work & what was their main idea of theme! What was their ‘school of art’ called – i.e. Monet was an impressionist… Why were they important to history.
Chose one of these artists…. (look in the art book to start, then in other books and on-line. Your report will be an online power-point style presentation. Use Google docs or office online with hotmail. Upload and make a link to your site that I can pick.

Your assignment is to make a series of drawings using all weights, lengths and types of lines to make images.
Start by drawing an extreme close-up of your shoe - let it go off the page - use curved lines to show it turn in space - use variety of lines to show texture and detail.
As the series progresses your drawings should become more about the abstract shapes and movements of the lines themselves. What forms can you create?
You are trying to draw form and space with out drawing the thing itself.
Now is the time when you put together the techniques of starting a paintings f rom life with the big shapes and no details AND then put over that the kind of detail painting you learned in beginning art w hen you did a photo-realist painting. The difference here is DO NOT put details on every square inch of the painting. By having some area more details than others you will create a sense of depth of field that will create space and focus. Make sure you blog it! Also make sure you blog another sketch book image.
