  • Drawing Assignment: Continuous Contour Line Drawing

    A Continuous Contour Line Drawing is an exercise to help us focus on the line. The idea here is to create a drawing where you never lift your drawing utensil from the paper. I like to use a pen on this one to help me resist the urge of erasing mistakes. If you have never done this exercise you may find your drawings odd and “imperfect” but that is what makes them beautiful. Also focus on looking at what you are drawing as much as the drawing itself and do not stop moving your hand when you look up.

Upcoming dates:

  • 3.9.18 3rd Quarter progress period close
  • 3.9.18 CTE application deadline
  • 3.14.18 | National Technical Honor Society induction ceremony
