GESTURAL DRAWINGS Reminder

A friendly reminder that you’re coming to class tomorrow with 10 pen/pencil sketches of gestural version of your object for Project 1: A Natural Object, 4 Ways.

We went over gesture drawing in class on Thursday, and there is a Read/Watch/Write about the topic that’s due before class as well.

I’m switching things up a bit on Tuesday, and we will be going over the Pen Tool in class, the schedule will be updated to reflect this.  Please bring your sketchbook with 10 gestural drawings, textbook, and removable media to class with you on Tuesday.
