Art Plan – All work has been discussed in class
• Do an A4 self portrait using pencil. The work must show consideration for detail and the application of value and tone to create form.
• Draw all features(mouth, eyes and nose) using some form of expression
• Research Project – Research an artist that you like that has created a self portrait. This can be a realistic/abstract work of art. Your project must include a photocopy of your selected self portrait artwork, your own drawing of the self portrait(this can be a close up) and 10 lines including the background of the artist and your own opinion of the work.
• Observational drawing – Select a primary source that represents self identity – Draw on an A4 sheet a pencil and colour study of this object.
• Research a poem/ song that you would like to base an illustration and calligraphy project on. You may select the whole song/poem or a couple of lines from it. Make sure what your selection is descriptive so it is easier to create visuals.
• Research – Using Pinterest and google draw/print imagery of examples of sketchbook pages you like – Annotate why you like them and what you possibly might use for your own work. You must explore at least 6 images
• Sketchbook work – Select one/more primary sources to work from that relate to the poem/song. Create 2 A4 creative sketchbook pages exploring the primary source through colour,tone,line,form,shape and pattern. Some of your drawings can be closeups. Remember to draw large and be creative with your choice of mediums and backgrounds in your sketchbooks.
• Don’t forget to annotate your work
