Assignment #1 Due: Friday, Sept.18
We have been discussing the roles that Art plays in our own individual lives, as well as in our larger community. You are to make a full page illustration that answers the question. Your answer should reflect your own thoughts/opinions on this. You may use words in your composition, HOWEVER be careful that your illustration SHOWS, rather than tells. Artists must be able to speak with images.
You will need to start with thumbnail sketches to design your page. AT LEAST FOUR different thumbnail sketches are required, showing that you have contemplated four different design ideas for this composition.
You are asked to use pencil crayons for this assignment. (combining other media, such as sharpie, charcoal, paints, with pencil crayon is fine here, however pencil crayon technique needs to shine strong in this work). Saturation, blending and layering of pencil crayon colours is all required, and evaluated. Please review the techniques handout for explanation of how to do these. As well you are encouraged to look for some technique tips on the internet to help you employ pencil crayons with some sophistication.
