Intro to Art: Sketchbook Challenge #3 (Incredibly Illustrated Idioms)
- DEMONSTRATE your understanding for the procedures of the weekly sketchbook by completing a themed/timed sketch.
- SUMMARIZE their opinions of their themed sketch by writing a 4-step critique
Today is your third sketchbook challenge, and more importantly, your third chance to get some quick and easy points.
The key to this activity is that understanding that you are limited to just 45-50 mins of class time to work on solving the THEME for the weekly sketch. While many of us have these grand ideas of what we will accomplish, once the class comes to a close you will need to have a FINISHED concept/idea which solves theme given for the week.
SKETCHBOOK CHALLENGE # 3 : Incredibly Illustrated Idioms
Upon mindlessly exploring the internet and Instagram one day, I came across an incredibly talented Israeli artist and illustrator’s account: Karen Rosen.
Rosen takes simple idioms or a set of words that have different meanings when used separately than when used together in a sentence and illustrates their LITERAL meaning using simple shapes and colors. You can see a few below:
Select an idiom from the list below and illustrate the LITERAL meaning behind the saying. The catch with this sketchbook challenge is you must incorporate at least ONE POST IT NOTE in your drawing.
