Transformation Drawing Assigment Guidelines

Make marks on the same surface over a five week time period.

  • Begin with a sheet of paper measuring 42" x 36". 
  • Use ArtGraf Discs to cover entire surface. 
  • Complete required research (see below). 
  • Each week bring the drawing to class. 
  • 90% of the drawing needs to be different from the week before. 
  • Each week the drawing should look like a new drawing. 
  • Points are deducted from final project grade for missing a weekly presentation. 
  • The changes you make to the drawing should demonstrate time and effort. 
  • After the initial tonal prep using Art Graf Discs, materials are your choice.
  • Cutting into the surface or adding dimension to the surface is a form of drawing. Feel free to use non-traditional methods of drawing (mark making). 
  • Take risks. 
  • Explore.
  • Give and Take.
Document drawing each time before you change it. Post all images of documentation on your blog. 

Research the many ways in which you can make marks. 
Post at least three visual examples for research. 
Site the source for each piece of research. 
I have visual examples on the class blog that may interest you. I suggest the following categories to get started:

I also have a board set up on Pinterest entitled "Drawing Making Marks". Link here.

What to put on the blog:
1. Take a picture each week, before you "transform" the drawing for the next week. Post all pics on blog. Clearly label so viewer can see the chronological order of your process. 
2. At least two professional images of the final drawing. 
3. Several detail images. 
4.. "Label" info for the drawing: title, medium, size (length" x width"). If your drawing has dimension on the surface your measurements will be length x width x depth. 
5. Artist statement.
6. Research with sources sited.
