Line, movement, rythm, gesture

  1. 1. Design Fundamentals deBeaufort Line, Movement, Rhythm, GestureAssignment: Create a pen drawing demonstrating the visual elements of line, and movement and the design principles of rhythm, repetition.Directions: 1.Using an illustration board cutter, cut your illustration board in half to measure 10"x15". 2. Lightly in pencil trace a circular overlapping gesture across the board. It should be interesting but not too complex. 3. Begin to fill the spaces created by the gesture with lines of alternating rhythm and thickness. Use both the fine point and chisel tip of your black pen. You may organize the project in many ways, think about using continuation, radial lines, cross hatching, checkered patterns, or anything else you imagine. Be sure there is a variety of mark making and that the piece feels rhythmic and alive with movement.Student Learning Objectives: 1. Design: Students demonstrate a knowledge of line and line weight, rhythm, gesture, movement and continuation. The initial gestural line in pencil is a device that creates implied shapes and movement. Unity is achieved through careful alternations of visual rhythm and line weight, and the piece is exciting and dynamic because of its gestural qualities.Grading Rubric: CONCEPT (40 pts) : The project makes use lines of various weight plotted in a creative and non-repetitive way. The image is clear and sharp, the lines implied through continuation are apparent, and there is a bold precision that is not muddled and vague. The image is exciting and dynamic without being confused. PROFESSIONALISM (40pts): The project is neat and precise, there are no blemishes, scratches or scuffs that distract the viewer. The pen has not bled, and when mistakes they have been neatly concealed. There are no pencil marks, finger marks, water spots, etc. The black of the pen is uniformly dark and it does not look like the pen was running out of ink. ORIGINALITY (20pts) Are the designs innovative and original, or simply rote copies of the examples given?100 points total
