Imagination & Visual Literacy Class
I'm teaching a class called "Imagination & Visual Literacy" at UVU right now. I love this class. It's all the good stuff. I think I learned more than my students in developing the curriculum.
This was yesterdays in-class assignment. Draw a cat looking out of a bedroom window and include 25 items in the room but put all of the emphasis on the cat in 45 min. Since it was a drawing - students couldn't use color for emphasis which is one of the easiest ways to accomplish this task. High contrast and crisp lines were all they could use.
I drew the above image along with them on my iPad hooked to the LCD projector. I like creating problems that I would also like to solve - why should they have all the fun?
