  2. 2. Umm, what?• Choose a body part (keep it PG!) that is typically not focused on in traditional artwork, making it the “central figure” or “portrait” in your work.• Ideas: – Eyes, eyeballs -Shoulders – Ears -Hips – Lips -Hair – Hands, fingers -Arms – Feet, toes -Legs
  3. 3. Body Part Art• Keep your subject matter limited to only one part (avoid whole faces or large portions of the body)• Use color, size/scale, and repetition (multiple images of the same part) to create visual interest• Think of what you would like to communicate to the viewer. – How do you want the viewer to feel? – What do you want the viewer to understand?
  4. 4. Any Questions?• Make a sketch: – Pick a part of the body – Think of an interesting composition. How can you alter it to make it more interesting to look at? • Size/shape • Color (unusual) • Repetition – Avoid realism; think of the abstract.
