positive negative studies

posneg1

Another critique day in my drawing class. Very fun. This part of the learning process is a clarification for them, of what they have accomplished.
Again, I will note…this is a dream group. They listen. They observe closely and work carefully.

The assignment is a positive negative study, 18″ x 24″.  The drawing tool is a Sharpie marker. They focus and draw the negative spaces of a still life. The end result will be a silhouette of the positive shapes, the subject matter. They learn to see the spaces between things.
I have drawing 1,2 and 3 students in this group. The advanced students have the option of playing with textures, color or other elements of design.

Below are a few of the class favorites.
