FAS 110 Abstraction Drawing Project
December 10, 2022
Abstraction Drawing Project:
Requirements of Submission: Students will illustrate an abstracted still life. This project will require students to closely observe a chosen subject in terms of line, shape, value, and color, requiring the student to exhibit an understanding of the course content thus far, with emphasis on Module Five’s introduction to color. The project should meet the following criteria, created with oil pastels:
- One single subject, viewed from an abstracted perspective that focuses on one area (e.g., “zoomed in”)
- The final illustration should be in full color.
- The final illustration should occupy the entire page (i.e., no “white space”)
- Renditions should be realistic in appearance, drawn from direct observation, and not stylistically rendered. This means literally viewing the subject as it is drawn.
Students will submit their project in this module through the use of a digital camera.
Along with their project, a self-critique should be submitted explaining the student’s approach and challenges. It should be no less than 250 words.
Students should also post their completed project and self-critique to the Module Six discussion board.
Written components of project must follow these formatting guidelines when applicable: double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, oneinch margins, and discipline-appropriate citations.
