Sketchbook Assignment: (scroll to the bottom to make sure you do all assignments)
With pencil or ink, draw two common household items (from observation) that should never be used together. Examples: a toothbrush next to a bottle of soy sauce (gross) a spoon next to a bottle of face lotion a mousetrap next to your big toe a fork next to an outlet
For the first 8 weeks of class, we will watch art history videos that take us through the different periods of art. These are creative and fun. I'll have a few questions for you to answer on the lined writing paper in your sketchbook. Label the first one "Week 1" and write your answers. There may also sometimes be a little drawing assignment that you can do on the same sheet of paper.
WEEK 2 QUESTIONS: 1. What were two things the Greeks learned from the Egyptians to make their statues stronger and more stable? 2. The Greeks figured out proper human proportions. How many heads would you need to stack to get the average height of a human? How many heads high for a superhero? 3. What shape became popular for building bridges in Rome?
Here is the LINK for the first next video that focuses on Greek and Roman art.
