Project Objectives Create a dynamic composition using the six basic forms: Sphere, Cylinder, Donuts, Cone, Pyramid, & Cube/Rectangular Prism.Draw in cuts, slices & dices into each of the forms.Keep a consistent light source and render the composition with FULL range of values using your drawing pencil set
Procedure In your sketchbook, draw out at least 2 thumbnail sketches experimenting with the placement and size of the six basic forms in your composition: Sphere, Cylinder, Donuts, Cone, Pyramid, & Cube/Rectangular Prism.Create a focal point by placing your larger object (also with the most value contrast) in one of the Rules of Thirds.You must include at least 2 of each form. That is the MINIMUM amount- draw in as much as you need to create the best design!Use overlapping of forms to create depth in your drawing. Vary the sizes & view points for interest.DRAW FINALLIGHTLY draw your design onto a sheet of 12×18” drawing paper. You will obviously enlarge your design. You may use ruler & circle (for template)
In your final design, cut open and slice up the forms so we can see through to the back side. Create openings to give interest.It is okay to have a few forms that are not cut or sliced, but at least on of each type of form must have cuts or slices.
Shading Keep a consistent light source and render the composition with a FULL range of values from black to complete white.
Evaluation Visual-did students accurately draw forms in their still life, how did they use the space on the paper, does each form have consistent lighting, is each form rendered with a full range of values?
