For this assignment, I want you to create 1-2 pages (3 if you have a lot to say and plenty of visuals) about the wire figure project. On these pages, you can talk about or include any of the following things:
- Photographs of your various figure drawings
- Photographs of the model, if you had one
- Discussion of what it was like to work with pencil, charcoal, water soluble pencil, etc. … which could include what you found easy, what you found difficult, and any tips or techniques that you learned or discovered along the way
- Discussion of any artistic influences that effected your work
- Your judgement of how the figure drawings turned out (was it successful, where did you fall short, what could you do better, etc.)
- Any potential ideas or goals for future figure drawings
Note that this is not a definitive list, nor do you have to do everything on the list. These are merely suggestions to help guide you.
What Your Page(s) Must Have
- A title or header, so we know what this page is about
- Something visual on every single page (you can have more than 1 photo per page)
- A border (do not go edge-to-edge with your work)
- Text that demonstrates your thinking and/or reflections
- Citations for any images or quotes that come from someone other than you
- Transcribing of any handwritten text that is in a photo, but is not legible
