Making Your Mark
Exploring LINE Design
AI.10.6: I can use a variety of drawing media and processes to create observational works of art to include: modified contour and blind contour.
Types of Outlines:
Blind Contour
Continuous Contour
Outline: A line that surrounds the outer edge of a shape using little variation, appearing flat.
Contour: An exterior and/or interior boundary between shapes varying in thickness and darkness.
DO NOW: On the next clean page of your visual journal...Label the page Contour line drawing. Use the top half of the paper to draw your hand with your HB graphite drawing pencil.
DO NOW: Anywhere you have room on that page, include this drawing.
Continuous Contour: Is a Contour Line drawn without picking up the drawing tool.
DO NOW: On the next page, after your blind contour page, label it Continuous Contour. First, you will take off one of your shoes and place it on the table in front of you. You will draw your shoe with a colored marker in one continuous line.
Remember, DO NOT pick up your marker!
Blind Contour: a Contour Line drawn without looking at the paper
DO NOW: On the next clean page in your visual journal, label it Blind Contour. Next, you will choose a partner to work with. Both of you will draw each other at the same time using a colored pencil.
REMEMBER: You may NOT look at your paper!!!
Line: A thin mark that is used to define space.

Line can be of contours and outlines or suggest mass or volume. It may be a continuous mark on a surface with a pointed tool or implied by the edges of shapes and forms.
Final Activities:

Reflect on each page of your visual journal (contour, blind contour and continuous contour) on how each contributed to the composition by answering these two questions for each:
1. (Contour page) What is the purpose of a contour drawing? How is this different than drawing descriptive lines and patterns?
2. (Blind Contour page) Compare and Contrast blind and regular contour drawings.
3. (Continuous Contour page) What did you discover when using this type of line? How did your process of drawing change based on the limitation of this type of line?
AI.10.3: The student will identify and describe how line structure contributes to a composition.
Descriptive lines: Lines created with a variety of tools and techniques, all adding detail.
Types of descriptive lines:
Hatch line: Many thin spaced, parallel lines, all moving in the same direction.
DO NOW: Draw three different thumbnails of hatch lines. One with hatch lines far apart. Another with hatch lines close together. Lastly, hatch lines varying in space.

REFLECTION: what do you notice about the three different thumbnails of hatching lines?
Cross-Hatch: Lines that cross over Hatch Lines, making a “cross” marking.
DO NOW: Draw a thumbnail of cross-hatch lines close together. Next, draw a thumbnail of cross-hatch lines further apart. Finally, draw a thumbnail of a mixture of cross-hatch lines.

REFLECTION: what do you notice about the three different thumbnails of cross-hatching lines?
SPED: Creating Outlines!
Grab a manilla sheet of paper and trace the different objects in your bin on the table. Overlap objects for a creative composition! Make sure you use different tools.
Vertical: A line drawn straight upward toward the sun.
DO NOW: Draw
vertical lines in a different thumbnail sketch.
Horizontal: A line that runs parallel to the horizon.
DO NOW: Draw a thumbnail of various horizontal lines. Don't forget to label your thumbnails.
DO NOW: On the rest of your page, fill it with thumbnails of other descriptive lines and label them. Descriptive lines add detail or describe something. You must have at least five different types of descriptive thumbnails.

Featured Artist: Vincent Van Gogh
On your same visual journal page, in the 2" space you left at the bottom, answer the following questions using the photos above:
1. What type of descriptive lines do you see? (10 types total)
2. Why did he use these types of lines? (two examples)
Goal: create and define different expressive lines
Expressive Line: Lines that are produced to express an idea, mood, feeling, or quality.

DO NOW: create an expressive line drawing in your visual journal. Media: two different size black sharpies.
See examples below of expressive lines:
DO NOW: Complete an expressive line painting using india ink and a bamboo brush.
See examples below for inspiration.
How are these two lines different?
What emotions do they convey? Why?
How does Munch show emotion through his use of line?
Do you experience a certain feeling when you look at this work?
What makes you feel that way?
What feelings does this painting evoke? Why?
How does this artist create this feeling? Does it add to the work?
Pattern: The repetition of elements or combinations of elements in a recognizable organization.
DO NOW: find a pattern and paste it onto a page in your visual journal (think about composition). Next, continue the pattern in graphite, colored pencil and chalk pastel. REMEMBER to pay attention to details and cut the pattern out cleanly and neatly...get creative!

Leave 2 inches at the bottom for reflection!!!
Goal: create and define implied lines
Implied: lines that are indirectly in artwork edges, and/or where two shapes meet and/or where a form ends and space around it begins.
DO NOW: Cut out a shape using colored paper. Next, cut shape in pieces and re-arrange back together in visual journal leaving space for implied lines.
DO NOW: In your visual journal, using BOTH hands create two lines simultaneously. Next, thicken parts of the line so it shows a progression of thin to thick using sharpies.
DO NOW: Draw three shapes that overlap with your drawing pencil. Next, create broken lines over top of the shapes with thin or thick sharpie (or use BOTH)
(indirectly at artwork edges)
Where two shapes meet...
where form ends and space around it begins...
1. How do the different mediums change the look of the original pattern?

2. If the pattern and mediums used were black and white, how would this read to the viewer? Why?
Line: The Project
GOAL: To create a non-objective line drawing through various processes and mediums.
1. Create a monochromatic wash using watercolor
2. Draw a contour line drawing of a still life
3. Cut paper to a square composition
4. Fill in space with various mini-projects, descriptive lines and patterns creating a balance of positive and negative space.
