“Design an Apron” Flats Illustrations Assignment – Due Wednesday, February 10
MATERIALS NEEDED: You will need your sketchbook, pencil eraser, ruler, fineliner, and pencil crayons
ABOUT THIS ASSIGNMENT: Aprons are extremely useful garments that can be specifically designed for a variety of tasks. One might design an apron for barbecuing, or for cooking, for grooming the dog, or for doing carpentry, for painting, or for sculpting. Each of these kinds of aprons will have design features on them that assist with the task that they are to be used for; for example a barbecue apron covers the chest and stomach, wraps around the sides of the body, and has a big pocket in the front for barbecue tools such as a flipper. A dog-grooming apron, on the other hand, would be made of something waterproof, and have separate pockets for scissors, soap, and doggie treats.
Aprons can be gathered at the waist, can be made of contrasting fabric, or all the same fabric.
Aprons can be long, short, or half-apron style.
They can be reversable, have back strapping, or designed in an ice cream cone shape!
