The following Blizzard Blizzard Bag assignments are what I have chosen for you to complete. Please read the directions carefully. I wish you the best of luck.
If you have questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Blizzard Bag #1 -"Still Life" -
Supplies needed: blank white paper and pencil
You need to first find at least three simple objects to draw. Here are some examples: basketball, high-top, and a trophy... a box of cereal, bowl, and spoon... an apple, cutting board, and knife. It is not necessary that the objects are related, but it often makes the composition more interesting. Place the objects in front of you in an interesting arrangement. DO NOT SET THEM UP IN A ROW. Draw the objects lightly with a pencil. Please draw a table line so the objects are not floating. Try your best to add value (shading). Please notice where your light source is coming from because that will be the lightest areas (light tones). The areas farthest from the light, will have the most shading (dark tones). In the middle will, of course, be mid-tones. Please do not color this assignment.
Blizzard Bag #2 - ”Zentangle" -
Supplies needed: blank white paper (at least a 4" x 8" rectangle), black gel or ballpoint pen and a marker or Sharpie.
As you all know... I LOVE to Zentangle!! First, draw an 4" x 8" rectangle (portrait presentation) in your sketchbook. Trace with Sharpie. Second, draw a curved line so it separates your rectangle. The curve may loop and curl if you like. Third, draw Zentangle type patterns into the negative space of the rectangle. Please do not repeat the same design over and over... that is way too boring. If you want to add color...GO FOR IT! Use the examples below for inspiration.
Blizzard Bag #3 - Draw the Scene
(Not due until a Calamity Day is issued) Supplies needed: white paper (at least an 8.5 x 11 and a pencil. Coloring or value is optional (but a BONUS).
Grab your sketchbook and a pencil. Sit somewhere in your house. Draw a contour of everything that you see. Please don't lay on your bed and draw the ceiling. The page should be filled. Details should be included. Try your best to follow the rules of perspective.
See example below.
