Sketchbook Assignment: What I Ate Today
Draw a sketchbook page of what you ate today or over a few days. Use micron for outline and colored pencil or watercolor for color and shading.
For the final 6 weeks of art class, I am going to select 4 pieces of art each week and ask you 3 questions that require personal evaluation and thoughtful answers. You may write them out on paper and hand them in at class, or you may email them to me if that's easier.
I challenge you to write a PARAGRAPH for each answer instead of one or two words. A paragraph is 3-5 sentences and forces you to think a little deeper about your reasons for your answers.
1. If you had to look at one of these sculptures every day as you walked wherever you walk, which one would you choose? Why?
2. Which sculptor would you rank as the most talented? Why? Extra credit: look up the piece of art and write down the material that it's made of.
3. Which of the following sculptures make you wonder most, "Why did he make it THAT way?" What about it makes you raise your eyebrows or cringe?
