Sketchbook Assignment – Old Shoes

This week’ sketchbook assignment is old shoes: Find an old pair of shoes, and place them near a window or some other strong light source. Do a value study of those shoes. A couple of things to remember:

  1. Chose shoes that are old – new shoes are harder! ┬áDo not try and draw shiny shoes, either, as you will be dealing with reflections and that makes it very hard.
  2. Do not draw pure black shoes.  This will also make things much harder.
  3. Make sure you have good shadows and highlights.
  4. TWO shoes (Even though one of the examples only has one)
  5. Fill the page!

 

Sketchbooks for Quarter 2

Here is the handout with explanations and due dates for all the sketchbook assignments we will have for the rest of quarter 2. I will post examples of the one due next week shortly.

Website Analysis

In preparation for any design/project, we always look at artwork done by other artists. It isn’t any different with WebSites.

Below I have attached a link to a worksheet I want you to fill out for class on Friday. Follow the instructions on the worksheet, and answer the questions I have given you. You can either print the worksheet out and write in your answers, or you can type them directly into the Word version of the handout. Please note – you need to download the WORD document version of the handout in order to be able to type your answers in – the PDF will not allow you to do so very nicely, if at all. This handout is due on Monday, and you will not have classtime on Monday to finish it, so get it done this weekend if you don’t do it during class today. (The only reason why you might not do it today is if you are finishing up your Surrealism portrait.)

Also, start thinking about what kind of a website you would want to design. What product would you want to sell? It can be real or imagined. More information on Monday!
