Assignment 3: Pattern Dude Coloring Book (2/27)

Please let me know if you attended the Figure Drawing workshop last week and I will give you extra credit. There is another figure drawing student workshop this coming Thurs. 3/2

Monday: Figure drawing from a model for first the part of the project.

READ this post carefully for details and all the way to the bottom where the requirements for what to bring to our next class are listed.

1. Finish and hand in all of your digital and hand applied changes
for the last project by Monday. Bring them to the next class and place them into your drive folder for grading by Monday morning.
*** All students who make changes based on suggestions from the critique will receive a HIGHER GRADE for their efforts.

2. Post the project images, process, and written reflections onto your Learning Portfolio. I will be checking it Sunday.
(refer to the LP page here on the blog for requirements and student reference links) It gives you questions to answer when writing, examples of how to post from former student reference. Show and talk about sketches, each of the three parts of the project and photos of the museum piece and your objects. Do not just post the photos from the critique.  The images from the crit taken by your classmate will be placed into your Drive folders by later tonight. You don’t have to use them but if you do, place them as the final image in your post, not the only image in your post.

3. Create seven sketchbook images on separate pages of an aspect you would like to practice. For example: If you have trouble drawing faces, draw faces. Other choices: You can also draw figures sitting, hands, feet, fabric, hats to prepare for the next assignment. (If confused email me with questions.) 

4. Research and gather seven cultural patterns for our next project beginning on Monday. Place them in your sketchbook as collaged and drawn swatches (squares). You can cut them out from printed magazines or the internet and draw them. Write down the culture and type of pattern under the swatches in your sketchbook as shown above. (These can take up as many pages as you can to fill the sketchbook). Examples of cultures can include Japan, China, India, Islamic, Medieval Europe, etc. One example can be from your culture.
Body decorations such as tattooing, jewelry, and different types of clothing can be included.


Look at the swatch examples gathered by former students in student references.

TO BRING: 1. Bring your sketchbook; all drawing materials are listed (Bristol board paper, drawing medium, etc.) on the top of the assignment sheet. (print and bring)  Study the examples and instructions on the assignment sheet to be prepared for class.
