Mr.Giles – 3B Art Advanced

Sketchbook Assignments Unit 1 Still life

Assignment includes choosing 3 different objects and placing them together in an appealing arrangement. Objects are anything in your home that with reasonable size and form. Choose different kinds of objects. Choose objects that present a form that you can draw and replicate. Any type of forms that you choose should represent basic 3D forms and spaces. For example, spheres, cubes, cylinders, pyramids and cone-like structures would be simplest to draw and replicate. They would also display your strengths in making marks such as line, shade and shadow.

Your first assignment is to choose the 3 objects and draw them in different ways with graphite and charcoal.

First drawing: charcoal outline
Second drawing: Graphite contour
Contour drawing means you start and finish the entire piece with one continuous line.
Third drawing: charcoal with shading
Fourth drawing: graphite with shading
Fifth drawing: ink with gray ink (You may need to purchase gray ink for a fountain pen)

Each drawing should be replicated and include the same 3 objects in the same arrangements.

Feel free to ask questions in the comment bar.

Remember your drawings should be centered and use up at least 50% of the paper. The paper size should be at least A4. The A4 size print measures 21.0 x 29.7cm, 8.27 x 11.69 inches.

Assignment due Tuesday, September 1st. You must upload the images on google classroom on the due date.
