You are what you eat hw 2014

  1. 1. Appel • Art 2 / Art 2 GT YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT! THINK ABOUT and respond to the idea “you are what you eat.” This entire drawing must be from observation. Choose your favorite snack, meal, food tradition, or guilty pleasure and arrange it in an exciting or interesting way to showcase its importance to you. Also be sure to consider: colors of the background / setting, colors of other food-related objects you will include (cups, plates, wrappers, napkins, utensils, etc.) ARRANGE the items you have chosen in such a way that they will create a dynamic composition. If you want to incorporate objects that are more “temporary” (ice cream, fruit that could go bad, ice, etc) talk to me about how we can combine direct observation with drawing from a photograph. LIGHT the scene to create lots of contrast and shadows - use a table lamp, a spotlight, a flash light, or another source. PLAN your drawing by first completing three different thumbnail sketches of your set-up in your sketchbook. Make sure to consider the “keys to composition”: size, view, and placement.
