School is officially in full swing now.
Our first project deals with composition and design. We talk about the rule of thirds, focal point, overlapping, value, contrast, repetition, etc.
They were given a worksheet with three items (mostly two shapes and a line) and had to use only those three things to come up with their composition.
They got to use ebony pencils too. Fancy for Art I, huh?!
This is one of the quick examples I made for the students to show them what I expected.
