Drawing II is a quarter-long class focusing developing and utilizing basic drawing skills. After a review of values, lessons & assignments will cover 1 and 2-point perspective drawing and creating the illusion of distance (drawing places).
*A spiral-bound sketchbook or notebook and WOOD pencils (not mechanical) are required for this class
I recommend taking this class after Exploring Art and Drawing I. This class may be helpful if you take Painting later.
This class is planned using the NC Essential Standards.
Each class will complete AT LEAST one lesson that may be used for the ASW Evaluation process. For more information about the ASW process, click here.

4/18 Shattered Drawing with Gradients (Cubist-inspired)
Students earn a daily grade for attempting the Board Work as class begins (warm-up exercise). It doesn't have to be perfect, but it must be GENUINELY ATTEMPTED for 100 points, HALF EFFORT gets half credit (50), NO EFFORT gets no credit (0- zero). These grades will be averaged for one MIDTERM "Sketchbook" grade, and again for a FINAL "Sketchbook" grade.
Students earn a class "Participation" grade at MIDTERM and FINAL by being on-task every day. Each student starts with 100, and points are deducted. Non-participation loses 3 points for each day this happens (putting head down, off-task, not starting work after 2 verbal reminders). Part of this grade includes end of class clean-up. A mess left behind loses 1 point for each day this happens. (7.V.3.1 Apply safety knowledge to maintain a safe and orderly work space)
