Portfolio + Sketchbook Review (1) One [DUE 3/9]

Portfolio + Sketchbook Review One


Preparation to do prior to Monday

    • One drawing from those done in class according to the method listed.
    • This drawing should be an interesting, well-executed example of the method indicated.
    • You may redo any drawing, but it must be in accordance with the method indicated.
  2. LABEL
    • Make a tidy small label (~1×2).
    • Put your name and the method.
    • You will pen these below each image.
  3. INSTALLATION (pre-layout at home, take camera picture, use this to guide you Monday for quick installation. You will have ten minutes to install)
    • Consider carefully your arrangement.
      Presentation in terms of orderliness and what is next to what can make a difference.
    • Pin up or pin up clips and hang paper from these clips
    • You will probably need pins or clips at the bottom corner of each piece since they will want to curl.
    • Use checklist to confirm you has it all.
    • In one corner of each sketch label it according to the checklist (so I know what is what; don’t make me guess).
    • Place on floor below Portfolio work you mounted on wall.

Grading Considerations

  • Exploration of method and adherence to the method

  • Gives the appears that the suggested time was used (for homework/sketchbook projects)
