Original photograph of any subject matter


Take an original photograph of any subject matter to use for this assignment.  In your sketchbook, create a series of artworks that move from a realistic or representational image to an utterly non-representational image based on or inspired by the original photograph.  You may use any materials to incorporate the elements of art, including color, with this assignment.  You will submit a total of 3 images:  Original photograph (print and glue the image onto the first page of your sketchbook) Abstracted Image Non-Representational Image

Write a 250+ word statement describing the transformation in your images.  What made your initial photograph compelling to you?  How did you change it to make it more abstract?  How did you then make the image non-representational yet have it convey the same mood or feeling as your initial image? Submit the completed assignment in Assignments and include all images on the Final Padlet Portfolio. Materials: Sketchbook, Pencil, Dual-tip sharpie, Watercolor Set  Take a look at Theo van Doesburg’s Abstraction of a Cow, 1918 for inspiration.

Guidelines  Essay assignments should conform to MLA format  and cite the associated reading/resource.  Use a 12-point font. Use double spacing, so there is room for me to write comments. Include your last name in the filename (example: Unit-1 AS1 Smith.)  It should be a Word (.doc or .docx) format file.
