Last year we did a figure drawing unit in which we di gestures, evolving into
long contour studies of the figure using students as models. Afterwards we
used tracing paper to over lap and use the drawing in a montage effect using
three drawing that could overlap and create shapes. Within the shapes we did
patterns and doodles in the open areas with colored pencil. I showed them the
movie Yellow submarine and we took our ideas of patterns from this movie and
their own imagination.
One of these won the Best in Show at West Valley college Olympiad of the Arts
competition with 16 H.S.'s participting. I have slides of these as well. I
will try to put them on my website which may be up this week.
