I'm a designer working in the UK and I've been doing some teaching on a
design degree within a Univesity.
A particular interest of mine is teaching people of all ages the basics of
marker rendering. It's an effective way to produce stunning illustrations
relatively quickly and simply. I realise this may be more appropriate to
people teaching Design and Technology rather than art, but I recognise the
overlap between the subjects.
I'm beginning to put together a teaching aid and would be interesed in
peoples thoughts. Is this something happenening within your schools and
colleges or is it something that could be introduced? To what extent are
children taught about drawing forms ie. use of shading to make objects
Would anyone be interested in testing parts once it has been developed?
"I realize that this may be more appropriate to teaching design and
technology than art' ........... art is design.........design is art.
Are you referring to a teaching aide for marker rendering? Or are you
talkind about teaching how to create the illusion of the third
dimension on a two dimensional surface in general?
Students are SUPPOSED to begin learning how to create form versus
shape in elementary school. certainly that goal should have been
reached by the time they graduate from high school. Of course there
are always those teachers who don't know anythng about art themselves
and therefore do not really teach these things. I think it would be
very valuable to have a definitive explanation and demonstration of
marker rendering. They are seriously ignored in the typical textbook
or other resource materials.
