The HS class have nearly completed their final mark-making fabric portraits and they are looking sensational. The students have had a quarter of exploring different drawing techniques from: gesture, contour, negative space, continuous line, blind, upside down drawing and Zentangles. Theses silhouettes were the second formative task and the fabric is the third.
Once the canvas was complete the students were ready to begin their first major task.
Step 1: They drew three portraits applying the techniques they liked the most from the quarter.
Step 2: Then they merged them together with a posterized photo in Pixlr.com/editor ,and printed them out.
Step 3: The next step was to print onto fabric and apply marks which communicate a message about themselves. This task is very free and does not have too many restrictions so the students can really PLAY.
