ITHACA HIGH SCHOOL ART WORKS



Drawing & Painting Class: The Language of Drawing & Painting
 
Rather than focus on drawing a “thing” realistically, they explored the elements and principles of design as their subject matter to create their own visual universe.  Automatic drawing created the raw material of shapes in this black and white mixed media design problem

Essential questions included:

  • How is personal mark making related to drawing?
  • What are some design strategies to create a dynamic composition?
 

 
Challenge:  create a focal point, contrast,
spatial effects, movement.
