Warm ups will be drawing triangles that touch each other randomly. We will practice a texture using the "Cheek," (not the point but the side of the lead) of the pencil. First will be short curves then short dashes tightly together.
We will have a demonstration and illustration of the perspective of central vanishing point as in a road where the lines of the roadside come together at the horizon.
QUICK SKETCH CHALLENGE
We will sketch an idem in five minutes to loosen up. The idem this week is an old transistor radio.
We will draw a pair of binoculars, or a black bag.. These are dark and drawing a dark image while getting dark values presents unique challenges that we will practice, including lifting highlights and pre-sketching the values in the picture.
IF TIME ALLOWS
We will draw a fantasy creature. Since this class is mostly boys it will be a military theme: a warrior elf or goblin or troll.
We will practice some wash technique where we will wet the paper and while holding the paper at an angle drop the in the water color on to make an effect.
Students will choose a subject from pictures to compose their own project.
