Drawing I is an introductory art class at Smith. We focused on drawing techniques and the theory of good drawings and good art pieces. We were encouraged to branch out on our own for the assignments we were given, and had lots of opportunities for collaborative drawing.
This was a single class period assignment—with a group of three other people, we took an image from the internet and painted it with inkwash on a large piece of paper.
For this assignment, we were supposed to create a piece that would simultaneously change and be changed by the space it was placed in. I drew and cut out of paper a small city skyline, and took pictures of it in my college's botanic garden.
For my final project for Drawing I, I did several smaller pieces with an ironic typography theme. Each piece has a life-advice saying (of the sort you get when leaving for college), while the style of the drawing communicates the opposite of the saying.
