AP students will create a painting of an everyday object in an unusual state. The students will use the actual object as a reference (drawing from life) and plan using multiple sketches to arrive at a thoughtful conclusion.
1. Day 1: Brainstorm 10 ideas for the project: Ask yourself will this be a concentration or breath piece? Will your painting be abstracted? Think about the medium (acrylic, pastels, or watercolor) you might like to use, and start looking up references or taking pictures. You will need your object(s) ready to go on so you can begin sketching. Focus on TEXTURE, COLOR, and EMPHASIS, PATTERN, JUXTAPOSITION
2. Day 2: Create at least 4 compositional sketches to help arrange the elements and how you will crop the image (Discuss Plan with Pettelle-Price)
3. Days 3&4: Do a planned final sketch that brings all ideas together for final design. No smaller than 11x14. Sketches DUE
4. Days 5-10: Complete artwork with superb craftsmanship.
Medium ideas: ( acrylic paint, oil pastels, watercolor, digital painting, mixed media)
