Drawing and Painting II

Painting II

In Painting II we explored what it means to work with light, show transparency and build texture and layers. For the self-portraits we chose to paint distorted reflections from metallic objects or refracted through glass. Finally, we put the whole quarter together in a final painting called “the Gestalt”. Students had the choice to work from several prompts such as, “the sky is the limit”, “map of my life”, “a fly on the wall”, or “scavenger hunt”. -  Lisa Carroll

Drawing II 

In Drawing II we explored working with patterns and textures via colored pencil and collage, built on our understanding of values and composition via working with still life, and investigated layers through abstraction as well as exterior night drawings with incandescent light. Self-portraits engaged the students in interpreting their distorted reflections in spoons, car side mirrors and convex mirrors. The final project allowed for students to take bigger risks with materials and concepts as they worked from the prompts, “the sky is the limit”, “map of my life”, “a fly on the wall”, or “scavenger hunt”.
