Visual Elements: with fine artist reference
COLOR: Pablo Picasso
Word play assignment: On separate pieces of paper, explore the Visual Elements through typography.
- Choose one a descriptive word for each Visual Element. (5 TOTAL)
- Each student choosing their own descriptive word for each individual visual element prevents all of you from creating a similar drawing of “line.” So choose a descriptive word for “line” instead – curvy, straight, ragged, jagged, etc. This gets you to brainstorm synonyms and also means we can potentially have each one of you choose a different word.
- Create a small (6″ x 6″ – 8x 10″) experiment illustrating your concept through colored pencils, pen, pastels, paint.
Line: curvy, straight, ragged, jagged,
Shapes: round, flat, organic, bulbous, slick,
Color: bright, bold, clean, pastel, or you could go with super descriptive color words like burgundy, maroon, jade, cerulean. I just read the fantastic book The Secret Lives of Color and was really impressed with the amount of color words that we regularly forget.
Mass: considerable, huge, large, substantial
Texture: abrasive, angular, bouncy, bulky, feathery, hatched, icy, layered, piercing, pulpy, ragged, razor sharp, rough, sandy, sleek, swollen, transparent, wavy
