Students will first take a picture of a set of hands - their own or someone else.

Students will potentially need to change the scale of certain images in order to incorporate them successfully into their composition. Multiple Elements and Principles will be utilized in this drawing, specifically: unity, proportion, space, and contrast.
Fragmented Portrait: Cubism
Students will learn the basics of Cubism and use this knowledge to draw a fragmented portrait in pencil. Students will use create their own original composition using portraiture as the foundation. How students deconstruct the face, combine images, or define the rules is completely up to each individual. The final product can be realistic or abstract. The final product just needs to be unified and balanced.
