Advanced Art Lesson Plans

Text as Value Project for Advanced Art

This project focuses on:

  • Developing an image with a social/political message
  • Modeling forms using repeated and layered words
  • Learning pen and ink techniques

Assignment: You will complete a pen and ink drawing using repeated words to render values. Create an image that expresses a feeling or event related to human rights. This can be a current political/social situation or one from the past. It can be a global condition, or a local one in your immediate environment (as as bullying.) Words should be placed together tighter, bolder and more condensed to achieve darker values, and spread out as they achieve light values.
