Drawing Portfolio Contents

At the end of the Drawing Unit you will turn in a Drawing Portfolio. This is a collection of the work you have done throughout the Drawing Unit. The following items*, signed and dated, should be included in your portfolio.

In addition, the following drawings should demonstrate high quality craftsmanship, along with accuracy in measuring and proportion.

  • upside down drawing

  • blind contour hand drawings

  • modified contour hand drawings

  • modified contour of hand holding an object

  • contour drawing of boxes and cylinders (drawn from the still-life)

  • Simple still-life, using white & black charcoal pencil and brown paper. The drawing demonstrates strong composition (object touches three edges of paper), line variation, value changes, and attention to detail.

*this list will be added to as we work through the unit.
