Advanced and AP Art

Welcome to Advanced and AP Art, the on-line version. If you have any questions you can e-mail me: bmedina@schutzschool.org.eg or you can post questions on the comment area because others might have similar questions. We can also use the comment section as a discussion forum.

We are suspending the block reduction print project until we return back to school. The new project will be a color pencil drawing from an original photograph you have taken. You will need to arrange a time for either you or your driver can come to campus to pick up supplies.

Create a color pencil rendering from a photograph. Demonstrate using multiple colors when rendering objects.
Your portfolio will have a Box of Prismacolor pencils and paper (3 sheets-just in case)

1. Take a series of 6 photographs of objects, structures, and architecture in the city of Alexandria. Submit the photos (low resolution please!) via e-mail. See examples below:
2. I will help you decide which photograph would make the best composition for your project and e-mail you my ideas and suggestions regarding the photos. Suggestion: fewer details are better. 3. Once we decide on which photograph would work best, transfer the outlines of the image on to the 13" x 18" paper with a regular pencil.
4. Begin adding color. The focus should be on combining lines of color together, in other words we aren't blending or making areas of solid color. Keep in mind that we aren't trying to reproduce an exact image in regards to color so you are free to use the colors you feel are appropriate. Continue until the project is complete.

5. Final Product.

Please send me jpegs of your progress.

Grading:You will be graded on the following:
1. Neatness-do not bend or roll your project
2. Accuracy-does the drawing represent the photo in regards to object placement?
3. Balance-is there a balance in color?
4. Drawing-is the composition made of of lines of color?

Again, if you have any questions please contact me.
