There are TWO ways you can earn extra credit.  This is a good idea for many of you that are "in between" two grades.



1. SCAN or PHOTOGRAPH drawings from your sketchbook (on your own) and upload them to Pict.com.  Post them to your blog and write a bit about your sketches. 



2. Look at and REVIEW a drawing or art blog out there on the Internet.  You can choose from the following links, or find an art/drawing blog on your own.  On YOUR blog, write an article and post a link to the blog you are reviewing.  Write about what you like about the artwork, don't like about it, how it can help your own work or if it inspires you to try something new.

You will first need to upload your photo to the image hosting site that we will use this year.  Open www.pict.com in a new tab.



Log in using the link in the upper right hand corner.  See Mr. Bremer for the username and password.  There are designated Larkin folders that you'll need to click on, depending on which hour you have drawing class.  Click the appropriate hour, click upload, browse for your image, and upload it to the hosting site.

For your first blog article about your artwork, post your picture and answer the following questions/prompts.  If you choose to answer them one by one, copy and paste them in your article.  Otherwise, write out your article in standard paragraph form.  Thinking specifically about the negative space of a plant assignment, your answers will probably revolve more around how you decided to fill the negative space.



 



1. State the project assignment.

3. The effect I was trying to create was:



4. The most dominant ELEMENTS (Line, Texture, Value, Color, Shape, Form, Space) of my work are:
