Draw yourself while incorporating a style from an artist, past or present.
Study an artist technique or style. Learn to be inspired by a style without copying the artist work.
Use the entire surface. Do not do a floating head. Think about the background as well as the foreground. Use the four “Cs”—Creativity, Craftsmanship, Composition, and Contrast. Do not copy the artist you’re studying but be inspired by them.
Define the following terms in your workbook: (Include a visual reference.)
Artists to Examine:
(Choose one to research and write about in your workbook, show examples of their work and give your opinion about their style and work.)
Sir Joshua Reynolds
Marvin Gray Johnson
Consider: Technique, subject matter, mood, color, value schemes, expression, heritage, and overall composition.
Create something that tells the viewer about you as an artist and a person.
See examples; do not copy!
