Students must be prepared to make a major commitment. It is our assumption that students entering the program are here to lay a foundation for a career in a design field and will be required to meet rigorous and stringent standards. Strong communication skills, both verbal and written, are required as is the ability to read and analyze. Serious students will find that the program will provide them with an excellent opportunity to develop the skills necessary to succeed in the job market or advance in education. _Most of the students graduating from the program _continue their education.

Students will draw in 1-Point Perspective

Purpose:
Drawing with 1, 2 & 3 Point Perspective is a skill that every art student must understand and be able to demonstrate.

Student Objectives:
After completion of the lecture and the class exercises, the students will develop a final 1-Point Perspective drawing that shows all the percentages of a greyscale, from 100% white to 100% black, with all of the shapes and lines built up by contrast to a finished drawing of portfolio level.


Tasks:

301 - Draw objects using linear perspective. -

302 - Design basic geometric and organic forms showing texture and tone.
307 - Create value with the use of layering.

 

Career Path: Graphic Designer

101 - Identify career paths within the vocational profession.

First Year Students:

1PT Perspective Drawing
This lesson teaches the basics of drawing forms in one-point perspective. Students can then transform their drawings into a city scene. This lesson will be paired later on in the program with “Two- Point Perspective" which covers much of the same content but this teaches two-point perspective techniques.

 

Fantasy Landscape - city, landscape, jungle - whatever
Students will take the knowledge of one point perspective and apply it to there own imaginative creation. This drawing should be developed as far as they can take it by completing it with colored pencils...this should be a nice portfolio piece.

Take some time to research you objects and what the look like...

Requirements:
1. Horizontal Layout with the supplied paper
2. Image must show some form of structure-  (building, trees, mountains, etc)
3.  Need to be able to identify your horizon line
4. Image must show depth in the image - perspective
5. Final drawing needs to completed in colored pencils

Project goals:
1. Full value scale  - light to dark shades of color
2. Create interest for the eye
3.  Do something that interests you
4. Portfolio Piece

Project Overview:

I'm thinking about a good scare to keep our hearts pumping. So how about a "Scary Portrait" to put a little fright in us. Keep in mind all the things you've learned about what makes a good portrait. Just because your subject might possibly be a member of the undead does not mean they deserve less than your best!

Experimental Project:
Project Name: Pen & Ink Tree/Flower

Project Overview: 

Crosshatching is an extension of hatching, which uses fine parallel lines drawn closely together to create the illusion of shade or texture in a drawing.

Crosshatching is the drawing of two layers of hatching at right-angles to create a mesh-like pattern. Multiple layers in varying directions can be used to create textures. Crosshatching is often used to create tonal effects, by varying the spacing of lines or by adding additional layers of lines. Crosshatching is used in pencil drawing, but is particularly useful with pen and ink drawing, to create the impression of areas of tone, since the pen can only create a solid black line.

Using the supplied materials the students will complete the pen & ink assignment... See Examples
