-Options: charcoal pencils and white chalk or black & white conte sticks or black & white
Objects must be Thematic (10 % of Assignment):
Consider potential layers of thematic content in selective objects such as personal narratives, cultural references and expressive characteristics in objects and the way objects have been set up. Overall to have successful thematic content consider the selected object, composition, view point of object and lighting - these will all have potential in developing thematic content in drawing.
Formal Characteristics of Drawing (80 % of Assignment):
-Consider progression of space in relation to various levels of detail, contrast and edges
-Maximum detailing and high contrast in foreground progressing to decreased detail and low contrast into the background space
-Sharp (in focus) edges in foreground progressing to softer (out of focus) edges in background (Variation of mark making plays a part in this)
Process (Steps to Assist in Addressing Formal Characteristics):
-Highlights can be made with eraser or white drawing material such as white conte, or white chalk pencils or potentially white oil pastel!
Unifying Formal and Thematic Content (10 % of Assignment):
Consider how thematic content is reinforced by formal decisions such as composition, view point of object and lighting. As well, the way the object is depicted in terms of mark making and the observational drawing style can also have potential thematic content in the drawing.
