Design I // Line Explosion

My Design I class this semester is a a full room of 15 students. I have a mix of students that are experienced and inexperienced with art and design, and all are very hard working.

For their first project, we focused on line and the psychological meanings of straight and curvy line work. Students chose 1-3 adjectives to illustrate using line, creating a “line explosion.” The medium used to depict these lines included Sharpies and Micron pens of different thicknesses, and good craftsmanship was emphasized. They were to also implement the elements and principles of design in their work.

Elements: line, shape, mass/form/volume, space, value, color, texture, time/motion.
Principles: balance, rhythm, repetition, unity, variety, size/scale/proportion, emphasis/focal point.

All have aspects to be improved upon for their portfolio, but overall I was very pleased with their results!
