Welcome to another week of Letters From God! Nice to see ya. As you might have picked up, my passion is creating things. I absolutely adore the ability to create. I am taking three studio classes in college this year and it is certainly a workload. Below I will show you a sample of a couple of recent projects that have sucked up all of my time. The first one is from my 2-D Design class and the following are from my Color Theory & Painting class.I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. 🙂
- More black than white
- 6×6 square
- Must contain a family of shapes (shapes that seem like they belong together)
- Must successfully group and re-group (your eye has to be able to connect shapes in multiple ways)
- Must express artist’s creative expression
- Side edges must be well defined
- Side edges should not be all black
- Must have strong figure/ground reversal (you can look at the white shapes and then the black shapes separately)
- Collect 100 traced shapes from magazines/images/books/whatever
- Select 6 families of shapes and produce six different compositions
- Edit the best one(s) and choose one to finalize
- Cut out a 6×6 square of black contact paper and place it on mounting board you have prepared (with 2″ borders all the way around, except bottom border is 2.5″)
- Put your final composition accurately on top of the black contact paper and (using an x-acto) cut out all of the white spaces.
- Erase all pencil marks and you’re done!
There was a second part to this project, but I failed to take a picture of it before I submitted it for a grade. Maybe another time I’ll put it up.
