Create a picture worth more that words - make a picture with pencil on white paper that expresses a specic idea, mood and/or feeling about your experiences on Sunday! This is for all students! Have fun with it!
Today, using paper and pencil create an image that conveys an idea -
Using figurative images, symbols words, shapes, lines and pattern along with any other design an art elements (this is a link so look at it please), that you made a list of at the beginning of the semester, create a whole page composition on 11x17" white paper (in drawer) that describes your experience on Sunday.
it should express any ideas thoughts and/or mood that you had on that day, whether it had to do with the Superbowl or not.
The question is can you create an image that uses art elements like pattern movement, emphasis, see list - make sure you click here!, that can specifically describe your feelings and/or thoughts about a specific thing.
This artwork should be narrative - it should use specific symbols, it should use figurative elements (don't worry about how well you draw - do you best), but it cannot use words.
You should, however, write on the back, in a sentence, exactly what you were trying to express. The test will be to see if other people can, in fact, interpret your picture and understand what you're trying to say. Can you communicate clearly with an image?
You can communicate with people at your table, but not other tables - that way we can actually see if people can guess what you're trying to express but you can also try out your ideas with people on your table.
You have only one period to work on this, and you should use the entire period. You may start on a piece of newsprint for a rough draft, however you must finish in the period.
Artwork will be judged on
- completeness and careful execution, i.e. it is not just scribbled out - student actually took the entire class time period to do focused work on it.
-contains a variety of images and art elements and principles clearly
-clearly communicates a specific message
By today, everyone should have finished at least one art work.

How to write an art paragraph -
Name the object by title of the assignment – i.e. drawing with squares or line design
what does the image look like? (what is subject matter or motif)
What is the media? (pencil, watercolor...)
name at least one new skill that was
used in order to make the project (do not narrative everything you did to make it – just the new skill you learned for
name the main art elements - talk about the composition as well as art elements in individual parts of the composition
for your CM show how the skills and art element express an idea, feeling or mood.
*WARNING* DO NOT USE SIMILIES – i.e. – it’s blue so it reminds me of the ocean. Or it looks like a stary night. Describe the details of the image and let the viewer draw their own conclusions.
your paragraph shuold be
– what – describe the
– how –
skills and art elements
why is it important? – What possible meaning does it express? What does it say about you?
