300 Drawing and Illustration:

The purpose of this section is to develop the students' skills and understanding of drawing and illustration techniques, media, and concepts relevant to the creative industries. Through a variety of learning activities, including lectures, examples, study guides, guided practices, and student resources, the students will learn about the principles and practices of perspective drawing, including one-point, two-point, and three-point perspective, and will be able to use these techniques to create drawings that accurately represent spatial depth and dimension. They will also learn about drawing basic geometric and organic forms, creating line art, applying anatomy concepts, drawing from direct observation, producing illustrations using various media, and illustrating using value. By the end of this section, the students will be able to apply these techniques and concepts to create visually compelling drawings and illustrations that effectively communicate a message or story to an industry portfolio level.

 

301 - Draw using perspective.

Provided with multiple lectures, examples, study guides, guided practices, and student resources, the students will demonstrate an understanding of the principles of perspective drawing, including one-point, two-point, and three-point perspective, and will be able to use these techniques to create drawings that accurately represent spatial depth and dimension to an industry portfolio level.

 

302 - Draw basic geometric and organic forms showing texture and tone.

Provided with multiple lectures, examples, study guides, guided practices, and student resources, the students will demonstrate an understanding of how to draw basic geometric and organic forms, including cubes, spheres, cylinders, and cones, and will be able to use shading and texture techniques to create the illusion of three-dimensional form and surface texture to an industry portfolio level.

 

303 - Draw line art.

Provided with multiple lectures, examples, study guides, guided practices, and student resources, the students will demonstrate an understanding of how to create line art, including techniques such as cross-hatching, stippling, and contour drawing, and will be able to use these techniques to create visually compelling line art that conveys texture, depth, and form to an industry portfolio level.

 

304 - Apply anatomy concepts in drawing.

Provided with multiple lectures, examples, study guides, guided practices, and student resources, the students will demonstrate an understanding of the basic anatomical concepts relevant to drawing, including proportion, form, structure, and movement, and will be able to apply this knowledge to create drawings that accurately represent the human form to an industry portfolio level.

 

305 - Draw from direct observation.

Provided with multiple lectures, examples, study guides, guided practices, and student resources, the students will demonstrate an understanding of how to draw from direct observation, including techniques such as contour drawing, gesture drawing, and still life drawing, and will be able to apply this knowledge to create drawings that accurately represent the subject matter to an industry portfolio level.

 

306 - Produce illustrations using various media.

Provided with multiple lectures, examples, study guides, guided practices, and student resources, the students will demonstrate an understanding of how to produce illustrations using various media, including traditional media such as pencils, pens, markers, and paint, as well as digital media such as digital painting and vector graphics, and will be able to apply this knowledge to create illustrations that effectively communicate a message or story to an industry portfolio level.

 

307 - Illustrate using value.

Provided with multiple lectures, examples, study guides, guided practices, and student resources, the students will demonstrate an understanding of how to illustrate using value, including techniques such as shading, cross-hatching, and stippling, and will be able to apply this knowledge to create illustrations that effectively use value to create the illusion of form, depth, and texture to an industry portfolio level.

 

Standards:

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.11-12.1: Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of science and technical texts, attending to important distinctions the author makes and to any gaps or inconsistencies in the account.

 

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.11-12.2: Determine the central ideas or conclusions of a text; summarize complex concepts, processes, or information presented in a text by paraphrasing them in simpler but still accurate terms.

 

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.11-12.3: Follow precisely a complex multistep procedure when carrying out experiments, taking measurements, or performing technical tasks, attending to special cases or exceptions defined in the text.

 

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.11-12.4: Determine the meaning of symbols, key terms, and other domain-specific words and phrases as they are used in a specific scientific or technical context relevant to grades 11-12 texts and topics.

 

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.11-12.9: Synthesize information from a range of sources (e.g., texts, experiments, simulations) into a coherent understanding of a process, phenomenon, or concept, resolving conflicting information when possible.

 

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RST.11-12.10: By the end of grade 12, read and comprehend science/technical texts in the grades 11-12 text complexity band independently and proficiently.
