Fun approach Jackie to the weave drawing! If you would
like to share an image of your student's work - send
it my way (Jdecker@woh.rr.com). Here is the latest
image I have from Ken - a double self portrait. It is
awesome. I don't know if they used two digital images
- but that would work (scroll down):
Scroll down to see the portrait. The secret here to
the "light" lines is again transfering to the good
paper using graphite (or Seral paper) - only light
lines transfer. Of course - this unit is an advanced
project done after students learn the smudge
technigues and so forth.
One year, I wanted to do Ken's weave drawing with my
8th grade heroes unit - but I chickened out and did an
easier project. I'll always wonder if my kiddles could
have done it.
