9/8 and 9/10 Proportions

On Wednesday Evening and Friday, students worked on proportions.  We started by discussing the Organizational Line Drawing technique based on the work of Alberto Giacometti.  Once accurate proportions were established, students applied the categories of light based on the concepts addressed with the Ideal Solids. This is illustrated in the milk carton drawing by Theresa Vernon.  Note the milk carton is basically a rectangular box with a pyramid on top.

After completing a few studies on newsprint, students made longer more complete drawings again establishing a sense of light, locating the Ideal Solids hidden within the objects and developing a sense of atmosphere and space. Drawings by Chantel Carter, Christina Paoletti, Eduardo Barrera, Gabriel Alvillar, Nancy Rubio, and Trevor Finley.
