Students are spending class time creating modern and historically dressed figures. Next week we will begin reading and analyzing the play "The Importance of Being Earnest"; ultimately students will create full color design renderings for the characters of the play.
Students are learning to apply the 8-head proportion system to the figures they are developing. After we spend this week drawing the human form in various poses, students will move on to adding clothing to the figure. These skills will be put to use when we read play scripts and create costume rendering design projects.
Here is the link for the drawing lessons we used to gain an understanding of proportions for figure drawing: Drawing Lessons
On Tuesday, February 2, we will have an open-note Costume History quiz. I have attached links below for all of the presentations that I have access to share. The links don't seem to be live, but if you highlight the link and right-click, you will have the option to open it. Or, you can copy and paste the link into a new tab.
After the quiz, we will begin drawing the human figure. The figure drawing will lead into drawing characters with costumes, otherwise known as costume renderings.
