My students in Drawing and Design worked on a project focusing on Positive and Negative Space. The students used references from a story they have read. They had to make the image 12X12″ and utilize positive and negative space. Creating simplified images to tell the story in a new perspective for the audience to read.
Here are a couple of examples:
The students are now scanning these images into Adobe Illustrator to digitalizes their illustrations! Can not wait to share these works when they are finished!
Spring semester is underway, and my students are already hard working on their midterm projects. I am posting a few from the first month of class focusing on the Design Principles and understanding line and shape in a grid.
The project is called 5X5. Students had to create a grid using 25 squares. In those 25 squares they had to incorporate line and shape using the Principles of Design as a Guide. Some students followed the grid throughout their whole piece, while others broke the grid to create a new design piece within. This assignment is a great for non art majors and art majors as it pushes the way they see line and shape in a project so that they can see beyond the grid.
Teaching is one of my main passions in art. I have had an opportunity to teach drawing classes to older adults this past fall. Some students came in with experience and others came in wanting to learn how to draw for the first time ever. To say the least, the excitement those students had for the class was awesome!
Here are a couple of their pieces they did during my course for five weeks:

Instagram a quick snap shot of art works. As I have been working on my art work more in the studio, I noticed I created a lot of miniature pieces from my larger works. This little works are more of a progression of ideas in works that will become big later on down the road. So I have decided to join Instagram to document my process. You can follow me here: http://instagram.com/amircsov. I will be posting up to date images of works in progress and inspiring images. So if you are on Instagram please follow me.
