This course is designed to help students look at the everyday world around them realistically and abstractly. They will learn the emotional influence of the elements on works of art and recreate these emotions in their own work. Projects for this course include: Continuous Line Contour Drawings of a Still Life (using warm and cool colors), Positive/Negative Space Designs (using every day objects from the kitchen drawer and tool box), 3 D Silhouettes (watercolor and paper cut-out designs working with a theme and focusing in on a subject of choice), Postage Stamp Design, Changing the Emotion of a Famous Painting with Color to Create a New Emotion, Designing a Space City of the Future.
