Transcript of "Drawing concentrations"

  1. 1. The Concentration Section • A “concentration” is a group of related works describing an in-depth exploration of a particular artistic concern. This is often called a series. For this section, 12 images must be submitted, some of which may be details (but I don’t recommend more than 3 details).
  2. 2. Your series, or concentration, should reflect a process of investigation of a specific visual idea. This means that there must be a visual thread that connects all the pieces in your concentration.
  3. 3. I use the term "visual theme” but it’s just another word for subject matter such as PORTRAIT, LANDSCAPE, STILL LIFE, etc
  4. 4. The direction you go in is as broad as your imagination, but the works MUST have a common visual theme.
  5. 5. I will give you a LOOOONG list of possible concentration ideas. It is intended only to provide a sense of range and should not necessarily be considered “better” ideas.
  6. 6. As always, the "easiest" idea is the one you feel the most excited about, the one that moves you, the one with which you feel a connection.
  7. 7. There's nothing worse than getting to the 6th concentration and completely running out of ideas and enthusiasm for the topic you chose.

  29. 29. RATIONAL FOR SCORE: (5) • The connection between the work and the idea described is unmistakable. • By magnifying elements of the objects, the artist integrates the concepts of abstraction with very strong technical rendering. • There is a playful spirit in the artist’s decision making both in choice of subject matter and in the effective cropping of images.
  30. 30. Drawing Portfolio Concentration Section Score: 4 “My initial concentration idea was to was to draw a series of portraits of people deep in thought; showing their deepest regret and/or favorite memory.

  42. 42. (4) Charcoal Acrylic & Pastel, 21 x 26
  43. 43. RATIONAL FOR SCORE: (4) • The artist succeeds in conveying the concept behind the concentration, which is based on other peoples thoughts. • There is evidence of the effective pursuit of an idea. • The ideas become more complex as the concentration proceeds. • Overall, the concentration is of high quality, but several pieces do not rise to the level of excellence in regard to spatial relations, value and other drawing considerations.
  44. 44. Drawing Portfolio Concentration Section Score: 3 “After viewing many pieces from Frida Kahlo, I was interested in portraying my life by using self- portraits, concentrating on the strokes in the face to show the power of my life experiences.

  56. 56. (3) Pen & Acrylic 22 x 30
  57. 57. RATIONAL FOR SCORE: (3) • A sense of concentration is present, and the work is related to the idea of self-portrait as a vehicle for portraying life experiences. • The drawing quality, particularly in use of color and mark-making, is good; but in terms of composition, some pieces are more successful than others. • Although growth and discovery is evident, the investigation is limited.

Some works may be more proficient than others, particularly the final two images.
