Medium: Oil Pastels
Grade: 9-12 Art I: Foundations of Art class
Objective: Explore Cubist art, Create a drawing in the cubist style focusing on Shape.
Materials: Large Black paper, oil pastels
After focusing on Value and drawing from life, I transitioned to the next of the art elememts: Shape. I had student explore & critique cubist style art work in various mediums. My big picture ideal is that later in life they will be able to identify an artwork from an of the art movements however the main objective for a foundations class is experiment with various mediums, successfully incorporate the art elements in their work and strengthen their knowledge of composition.
With that I give you cubist inspire pastel drawings.......
