student work - non-objective examples
prismacolor pencil and rapidograph pen, felt tip pen on bristol
approximately 36 x 26 cm
these projects illustrate basic design
principles without representational imagery,
allowing the student artist to focus on the
pure visual elements (shape, line, value, texture,
color and composition).
5 circular designs- 5 palettes
this color theory
project (the first) familiarized students
with general subtractive color wheel groupings and with the
neutralizing of intensity through mixing, layering.
these square designs (second project,
basic design) are composed
of equal amounts of positive and negative shape. students repeated
the composition, filling in the reverse shapes the second time around.
