What is Automatic drawing? A process where you draw without drawing a specific thing. You don’t start out with the intention to draw anything. Just add marks to the paper and see if those marks can turn into something new.
B+C:Blending and Bleeding techniques to help refine your technical expertise. C is afor cross hatching. Use the resources provided to make a picture solely using crosshatching technique Focusing on the direction of hatched line to suggest form
D:Dali: Dali was a Surrealist painter and produced realistic artwork that depicted the strange, wonderful and fantastic. In this section we will explore ways of creating new and interesting pictures using Dali’s ideas and techniques.
E: Expressioniism. In this section we take on the Expressionists and look at how their love of emotions gave us some very unique artworks. This is a truly quick but very satisfying process.
THE FAUVISTS ARE THE WILD BEASTS OF THE ARTWORLD. THEY BELIEVE IN COLOUR, EMOTION AND PAINTING FOR THE SAKE OF PAINTING. YOU WILL NEED A PICTURE THAT YOU CAN CONVERT INTO A FAUVIST STYLE.
 
H is for Horizon Line. John Piper and architecture: As well as his huge output of abstract work he is also best remembered for his paintings of churches, castles & stately homes.
 
J is for Jasper Johns. Lots of his work were composed using simple images such as flags, maps, targets, letters and numbers. Johns' treatment of the surface is often lush and painterly
K is for Kandinsky. Many of these paintings were inspired by music and feelings. For example, he thought that yellow had the crisp sound of a brass trumpet and that certain colours placed together could harmonise like chords on a piano.
L is for Life Drawing: Artists have studied the human form for thousands of years. The human form is an incredibly complex system of layers that is easily accessible to artists.
M is fof Mark Making. What can marks tell us about the artist? can they tell us anything anout the feels of the artist or the process?
In this part of the project we look at natural form and creating observational studies. We will explore techniques like line drawing, blending and bleeding, and pastel work to create an interesting page of study in multi medias. Enjoy.
Op art works are abstract, with many of the better known pieces made in black and white. When the viewer looks at them, the impression is given of movement, hidden images, flashing and vibrations, patterns, or alternatively, of swelling or warping.
 
 
 
In this shading tutorial we will explore drawing and tonal techniques. These basic geometric forms will help us understand the basic shapes found in nature and how to draw them realistically.
Using Teesha Moore’s guide, create a sketchbook page based on a theme of your choice. You could use film, poetry, a book, song lyrics, an event, someone you know etc.  as inspiration.
