PROJECT: Color Lines
OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate your understanding of the visual elements of art and the principles of design.
GOAL: Create a 2” x 12” composition of vertical lines that evolves, progress, or has a narrative element. Your composition should include a variety of line types, visual depth by overlapping and value transitions, rhythm, unity, and a consistent color scheme.
- Tape (on the back) together enough paint chips to create a 2” x 12” sheet. This is your ground surface on which your composition will be built.
- Start cutting, tearing, and otherwise manipulating your remaining paint chips into 2” long lines.
- Glue these lines onto your ground surface to complete the GOAL of the project. Use rubber cement or white PVA glue.
- Be sure your composition is dry and has nice even edges before turning it in.
