  Student Work       The following 20 images are students work examples of 5 Beginning to Intermediate Painting and Drawing Projects. Descriptions of projects are as follows.        Project 1.     Chimera Project, Beginning Drawing, Graphite on paper, 14” x 17”, 2015    Students  were required to create a Chimera, combining at least two animals or (an) animal(s) and plant(s). The resulting creature was to be rendered as though it could exist in life. Students were expected utilize any techniques learned in class to date which include material, composition, shadow, texture,  proper description of gradients, proportion, foreshortening, and figure/ground relationships. Entire animal was to be included on page.        Project 2.     Abstraction, Intermediate painting, 4’ x 5’, Oil or Acrylic on canvas, 2015    Students were required to execute an abstract painting.  Students were to use the visual language of form, shape, color, texture and either greatly simplifying or omitting representational imagery completely to explore an idea. Students were to explore abstracting an idea, taking it out of the realm of representing the idea but rather thinking about how this idea feels and looks as a concept.       Project 3.     Master Copy assignment, Beginning Drawing, Charcoal on paper, 19” x 24”    Students were required to execute a copy of a   historically or contemporarily relevant artists drawing or print   using   Charcoal and a white piece of paper, not sketchbook or newsprint paper.  The final copy was to be a completely accurate reproduction of the original in terms of proportion, marks made, and value (gradients, tones). Acceptable artists to copy included Rembrandt, Seurat, Odilon Redon, Durer, Hieronymus Bosch, Kathe Kollwitz and Katherine Murphy.
