Drawing and Painting:
Students in D&P are continuing to reacquaint themselves with some drawing fundamentals. On Tuesday, they worked on shading with the use of various types of line. The assignment also required blind contour drawing so students were giving their right brains some exercise without even knowing it! The assignment start by drawing blindly as the pencils were poked through a piece of paper that shielded the line of view.
Once the contours of the wire were studied and several blind contour drawings were completed, students filled the rest of the paper with a variety of line shading techniques. The currently assignment involves the use of 2B – 4B pencils and blending stumps in pursuit of matching and blending values with black and white photographs of popular singers.
Some blocks practiced shooting in “auto” mode (indoors and outdoors) while others collaborated in creating presentations on shutter speed, aperture and ISO. The concept of the exposure triangle is still a little fuzzy, but next week it will be practiced in photo shooting on the grounds of the beautiful new school. In addition, we watched Photographic Myths presented by professional photographer, John Greengo.
Next week we will continue to study the exposure triangle through direct application and class discussion.
