Why does this profession interest you?
Functional Art and Design
"Have you ever been frustrated when you were trying to do something and wondered why no one has invented something to make your task easier?"
Create sketch and make notes of your ideas and how your product would be used. Ask yourself questions like: Who is going to use it? Does my design need any reworking?
After design is approved by me, make your final design.
Create a promotional piece to make people want to buy your product. See pg 55 for an example
Logo Design
"A logo is an identifying symbol designed to make people recognize a company or product every time they see it."
Design a logo, it can be for a company, a product, a team or other organization or service.
Start by sketching ideas. Choose design elements that help communicate the message of your logo. Be prepared to explain the significance of those elements with me.
Once you design your logo, you must apply it to Scout equipment, furniture, notebooks, ceramics, or fabric. **Wait to do this step when you are home and with parent's permission!!

Decide what your subject will be and create the picture according to the elements and principles of design we talked about.
Your picture must have three parts:
Subject-people, objects, and landscapes
Content-the story, expressed as mood and message
Composition- the ordered arrangement of the elements of art to reinforce the content
See pages 51-52 for more guidance and examples
