Using the information from the Observational Drawing Page on this week's Module, I want you to complete this project.
- 2 Pieces of normal sized paper
- Different drawing materials (pencil, colored pencils, markers, oil pastels, etc.)
- Your Imagination
Step 1. Gather your supplies. You have two options for completing this project. I want you to choose 4 objects that are related to each other somehow.
- Find 4 objects in your house to draw. This options is better because you will be able to look at the object from many different angles to add detail.
- Find pictures of 4 different objects. This option might be easier for you to draw, but your drawing won't be as detail.
I am drawing 2 objects from real life and 2 objects from pictures. I have the 2 real life objects and all my drawing materials here.
Step 2. Separate your paper into 4 separate sections, you will draw 1 object in each rectangle on your paper. Try to fill up as much of the rectangle as possible.
Step 3. Draw your 4 objects, add as much detail to your drawing as possible. Use as many different materials as you can find (colored pencils, crayons, pencil, pen, marker, etc.).
These objects are related because they are all needed to embroider. You will notice I was able to put more detail into the objects I actually had in front of me.
Step 4. After you have finished all 4 drawings, you will cut them out. Try not to have any white space around your object.
Step 5. With all of your 4 objects cut out, you will arrange in an interesting way on your second sheet of paper. When you are satisfied with how your objects are place on the second sheet of paper you will glue them down. This is called a collage.
Step 6. Use the materials you have available to add finishing details to your collage. You are finished now and can turn it in.
I added fabric and a table, so the objects weren't just floating. I added a quilt square in the background to really tie together the sewing theme. I also added more detail to my drawing with colored pencils and markers.
