Monday 27th October

Could all Developmental Workbooks be submitted to the 7th floor office for marking on or before Monday 27th October (first day back after the holidays).

Your DW should be submitted with the copy of your final print and the rubric I gave you should be glued in to your book (if you cannot find the copy I gave you, or you do not have all 3 sheets of the rubric, please download from my wiki and print again.

If you wish to hand in your DW today or during PTS day please call the Arts Department and ask for the DW to be placed on my desk. Make sure you submit all the work and have the rubric glued into your book- this will save time and mean you get your marks back faster.

Friday 19th September

Your research project is due on the 18th September. Please refer to the research project tab to read more details about the expectations of this. If you have any questions, you have plently of time to ask me either in class or via email during school hours. 

You also need to finish your pencil shading rose drawing and complete your colouring pencil shading rose drawing (still using hatching and cross hatching) and your charcoal shading rose drawing (still using hatching and cross hatching). All three images should be stuck into your DW with the left hand page used to explain the activity and the learning purpose and the right hand page with the correlating image stuck down.

Your last line drawing and the rose image should be brought back to class with your DW next Friday. There are no excuses for not doing this homework and bringing it in so make sure it happens!

Friday 12th September

Students should have completed previous homework assignments. Students should then complete the four outline drawings of the rose image and bring their drawings and the rose image back to class on Friday. The four drawings should be identical (or as similar as possible). They should all be outline drawings in pencil (no shading at all in any of the images please).

Friday 5th September

Firstly, you need to use your developmental workbook to record todays double lesson. Open your book to the first full double page and stick your Wrong Handed Still Life on he right hand side. Other the other side, using a biro pen or a pencil, put the title ‘Wrong Handed Still Life’ and the dat ’04/09/14′ at the top of the page. Write about the lesson- explain CLEARLY what you were asked to do, why you were asked to do it (i.e. what were the benefits of this task, what skills were being developed, what lessons were being learned etc). You should also write what challenges you faced personally and what successes you faced personally within the activity.

Now turn to the next double page available. Take your Blind Contour Drawing and stick it down on the right hand side of the double page. On the left hand side, write the title ‘Blind contour Drawing’ and the date ’04/09/14′ at the top of the page. Write about the lesson- explain CLEARLY what you were asked to do, why you were asked to do it (i.e. what were the benefits of this task, what skills were being developed, what lessons were being learned etc). You should also write what challenges you faced personally and what successes you faced personally within the activity.

Finally– Direct response drawings- Your homework is to go to a park with your DW and a PEN of your choice, and sit somewhere out of the way so no one will come and peek over your shoulder. You should take a good look around before getting comfortable. Once you find an organic object that looks interesting, get your DW out. Without looking at the paper, start at the top of the object and work slowly down, looking for angles of the shape of the flower head/ leaves etc and the tilt of the stem. When you get to the stem, decide whether to complete the flower head now or carry on down the stem. Aim to draw the shapes and angles that you see. Don’t think- ‘it’s a leaf’, think about the curve and the angle. Draw the pot, wall etc. Once done, you can add details while looking at your paper.
