As we prepare for our oil unit, for the end of next week make sure you have:
a 16" x 20" canvas
a high quality b & w photograph
I know I forgot to mention this to 4th period today, but those things will be needed asap.
Bring in a selection of images to choose from. Be picky with the subject and the composition, please. If you have a photo you have taken and would like to use it, even better! In fact, I strongly suggest that you think about this option. I can show you how to convert it to b/w in class if needed. Otherwise, magazines are a great place to look. If you insist on using google images, make sure to look under "large" file sizes in order to get the best printout possible.
Canvases can be bought for cost here at school, $9 for wide profile, $5 for thin profile. Cash only, please.
I will be showing examples of past projects on Monday so you can begin to think about color choice and subject matter ... so stay tuned!
