Transcript of Cubism and the
"Shattered Drawing" Project
"SHATTERED DRAWING" PROJECT
This project is about value, and how to achieve different, well executed values. From this you will become
at making smooth transitions between different values by only using
PRESSURE AND DIRECTION
This will greatly improve your drawing and shading skills which will prepare you for more advanced drawings.
With a Pencil,
draw a 1 inch border around your paper. Start with the short side first. Make 2 small pencil marks on each side, and draw a straight line, do the same with the long edge of the paper. Make sure to erase the area in the border where the lines intersect.
Modern Art Movement in which forms were abstracted.
Cubism was a backlash to the impressionist period, where there was an emphasis on light and color.
Forms were broken down to geometric shapes
The palette consisted of monochromatic scales, dominated by browns and grays.

ERASE INTERSECTING LINES
ERASE INTERSECTING LINES
Choose an object that is interesting or important to you.
Choose a single object such as a car, insect, a person's face, fish, bird, etc.
Something that is not too simple or too complex.
DRAW A CONTOUR LINE DRAWING OF IT within the borders
Using a ruler, divide your paper with 15 diagonal lines, drawn
. Stay within the border. Make your lines go from edge to edge, no floating lines, all lines have to start and end on a border line. Make your lines random in nature, you do not need a line pattern. Use a variety of directions!
Pick a shape and shade a corner starting with a dark value.
Continue to shade the rest of this shape using your blending technique of
pressure and direction
to gradually fade your value from dark to medium to light.
(Remember to hold your pencil close to the paper and not like you're about to write a letter!)
Choose a shape next to your 1st colored shaped. You will change the corner you began shading the dark value with, this is what causes the "shattered glass" effect.
(Make sure the corners of different shapes alternate between dark and light values.)
Dark to Light
Light to Dark
Continue this process with all shapes.
Do not draw your hand over areas you have already shaded; it will smear and make your project look sloppy!
DO NOT OUTLINE SHAPES!
YOU WILL BE GRADED ON HOW SMOOTH YOUR TRANSITIONS ARE FROM LIGHT TO MEDIUM TO DARK, ALONG WITH THE OVERALL CRAFTSMANSHIP AND NEATNESS OF YOUR PROJECT.
