Week 13 TAKE HOME

Week 13 - LINES AND THE GOLDEN MEAN        

due Wenesday Dec. 11

 

OBJECTIVE:

 

To explore division of space and PERSPECTIVE in light of the rule of thirds, ‘GOLDEN MEAN’ or magic triangle.

 

TO WATCH  Donald Duck in Mathmagic land: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EeN_td2do04

 

PROCEDURE:

 

-       in your sketchobooks continue to  practice the golden mean with a variety of dimensions – how may the use of perspective work within that space?

-       Work carefully and with a ruler to create accurate lines.  Use your pencil lightly as you map it out, then rework with a firmer line.

-        

-       FOR THE FINISHED PRODUCT:

  • Start with a whole large sheet of white – divide and cut into four even sheets
  • Using similar methodology to the assignment from earlier in the semester choose four from the following series of numbers:  8, 16, 32, 64, 128
  • Create dynamic compositions using STRAIGHT LINES and the rules of one, two or three point PERSPECTIVE –consider the golden mean as a guide – think of the video…
  • The positive/negative shapes or figure/ground relationships cn be emphasized with solid color but NO shading

 

Materials:

 

  • · large sheet of white – divide into four - mount all four in a quad-tic on presentation board
  • · ruler, PENCIL or PEN – no charcoal – to keep your work neat

Revisit the previous perspective assignment.
