The next two posts feature images of student works from Amy Wilson’s spring 2017 session of Drawing II (FID-1135), the second half a first-year foundation course that explores “drawing as an act of producing independent works of art and as a preparatory process in organizing a finished work.” The pieces were created in response to two different assignments, so I’ll devote a separate post to each.
First up is the alphabet project, which was the initial assignment for the semester. Students were required to create one drawing to represent each letter of the alphabet. As you’ll see from the examples below, the project is fairly open ended, and students often come up with a wide range of inventive responses to the initial prompt. All of the captions below are based on comments Amy provided along with the images. (You can click on each to zoom in and see the details.)
I’ll be back in a couple days with images from another of Amy Wilson’s Drawing II class assignments.
