When Viewing Examples of Student Work:

Often a single example of work may not demonstrate all the required objectives for a particular assignment. Instead students should collectively consider: the required objectives for each assignment, the multiple examples presented on this blog and during in class presentations. As well ideas discovered through a student's independent research in combination with various examples and ideas presented by instructor will ultimately be the best approach for synthesizing ideas and reaching the requirements (and unique outcome) for any particular course project.

Assignment 7: Cubist Drawing

 Formal Issues in Relation to: Fragments & Sequences of Multiple Viewpoints within a Still-Life

Formal Characteristics 80%:
For assignment, organize fragments of still-life on one 18 x 24 inch page

Overlap fragments in some areas

Fragments could be solid or translucent when overlapping shapes

Think about what will give you the most interesting composition

You can also distort shapes to enhance your composition

As you fill up your page begin to think more about mark making and incorporate an additive subtractive drawing process into the work.

Think about elements (Line, Shape, Mark Making) in terms of major and minor movements. Which elements need to be emphasized and which elements become less important (or secondary)?

How do you bring variety and complexity in composition but still have a unified composition?

Uniqueness and Expressive Characteristics 20%
Create a composition that is unique but complex in formal ideas
Intentional use of Expressionistic Characteristics (Intentional distortions, mark making, placement of fragments, re-contexualizing still life objects and transforming still life)
