Transcript

  • 1. Drawing
  • 2. Every drawing has something to offer, and no drawing, or way of drawing will provide a permanent solution to what drawing is or should be. Drawing is the basis of all artwork. On this course, you’ll be challenged to find your own artistic style and apply it to your art. We are going to experiment with a variety of techniques and explore both traditional and non-traditional styles of drawing. This will hopefully challenge your perception of what drawing is and help you understand how to use a variety of materials.
  • 3. Line drawings
  • 4. Pablo Picasso: ‘Fenhofer at Work on his unknown Masterpiece’
  • 5. What to draw? … You have been given the broad title ‘Environments’ for Unit 1. It is up to you how you interpret this. Initially you are exploring different techniques so can keep your idea fairly broad. Nature provides the most interesting objects to draw when practicing drawing skills. If possible choose objects that are flexible, to allow the drawing to be freed from inhabiting the need to have it absolutely correct … an old shoe, a pepper cut in two to reveal an inner world of seeds are two good examples. ‘Nature is the Artists Dictionary’: Eugene Delacroix
  • 6. Our familiarity with picking up and holding pens for writing creates a habitual approach to handling them. Why does a pencil that is used for drawing have to be held like a pen that is used for writing? This exercise is essentially about making marks with varying amounts of control over your drawing. Your aim is to hold your pencil in four different ways and make at least five different drawings Materials Use a combination of B, 2B, 3B and 4B pencils or graphite sticks on white cartridge paper. You will also need a long stick to attach your Pencil. Subject One, two or three objects eg: an old boot, half a pepper, an animal skull etc Drawing Project 1: The Extended Arm
  • 7. Examples …
  • 8. Outcome Each of the drawings can be used as a base upon to continue drawing with more control or can be kept as final piece.
  • 9. Drawing Project 2: Two Pencils Materials Use a combination of B, 2B, 3B and 4B pencils or graphite sticks on white cartridge paper. Subject A Single object or a self portrait By using two pencils bound together, you will produce a range of dense and sometimes unpredictable marks that will provide you with a surface to adjust, restructure, and work, both with and against. This drawing provides you with the opportunity to start by making marks inside the form, and there by breaking the habit of using line to draw the outer contour edge first.

  • 18. Texture and mark-making
  • 19. The aim of this exercise is to create a direct route of communication between your hands. Blindfold yourself, and touch and feel an object or your face with one hand, and respond with the pencil touch marks made by the other. What is important here is that the hand that makes the mark with the pencil, moves simultaneously, is in sync with, and responds to, the hand that is exploring your chosen object/face. Materials Use a combination of B, 2B, 3B and 4B pencils or graphite sticks on white cartridge paper Subject You should use a tactile object or you can create a self portrait Drawing Project 3: A Tactile Object/Portrait
