I have done a really interesting assignment with my drawing students...i
have them do a self portrait using symbols and "touchstones" or "icons "
they draw amazing personal compositions rich in pattern and line...they can
use blask markers of varying widths and good paper....we discuss negative
and positive space, repetition, line pquality, pattern, focal points....they
usually work from a brainstormed, written list. They all matt them and then
we do a critique and they explain them....it is a wonderful intro.
assignment and they all love thinking and talking about themselves. It is
usually the kids fave. assignment of first quarter...I do need to remind
some of them about drug and alcohol no-no's but if you set that up they
usually respect it...
