Project #2: Scholastic Art Magazine Due May 5
Project #1: Word Shapes
Hello 8th graders! For your first distance learning art project you are going to create a word in the shape of the item it represents. This is an easy project to do from home and a great way to stretch your imagination. Here are some examples of what I mean:
Now that you get the idea, follow the steps below to complete the project! Please keep in mind, you can do the same object as one of the examples but it must not be a complete copy. Put your own creativity into it. Otherwise, pick a different idea that isn't pictured.
Supplies you will need:
Step 1: Watch the you tube video to see how one of these drawings can be done from start to finish. Do not start drawing until you have watched the entire video.
Step 2: Start by getting your supplies ready. Then lightly sketch the outline of your object.
Step 3: Begin laying out the letters. In the video the artist started with the first letter, I have also found it helpful to start with the middle letter and work your way out. Do what works best for your. If you struggle with making "bubble" letters check out this simple how to: https://www.drawinghowtodraw.com/stepbystepdrawinglessons/2016/03/draw-bubble-letters-easy-step-step-drawing-tutorial-kids/
Step 4: As you feel more comfortable with your drawing, make the lines you are going to keep darker.
Step 5: Then choose how you will color it in. You can use markers like the video or colored pencils/crayons like the other pictures. The banana example picture shows it made more 3D with a technique called cross hatching using a pen. If you are feeling really ambitious you can try that.
Step 6: Make sure your drawing is complete and neat by erasing any extra pencil lines. Color it in fully.
Step 7: Look over the rubric (click on the button to the right to see it) and make sure you have done your best work and met the criteria. Then have your parent help you take a picture of you holding your artwork. Not too zoomed out-I need to be able to see the artwork clearly, but having you in the picture too will help me keep thing organized!
Step 8: email the picture to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also email me at the same address with any questions you may have about the project. I can't wait to see what you come up with!
