Our first painting followed an achromatic scheme: all
grays. Several standards were achieved including specific design
principals like variety, contrast,
balance, and emphasis.
Typography in art was introduced with several famous artists serving as
sources for inspiration: Stuart
Indiana, and Charles
The goal here was to design original letters that
spelled out a one-word concept. Students then had to illustrate an image
that symbolized their concept choice. The entire picture was painted in
a variety of grays while the image (a focal point) was shown in either
black, white or a combination.
