To create an etching using straight and curved lines.
This lesson will integrate the principles of: positive and negative space foreground, middle ground and background space perspective
Some of the samples below are outcomes of cross-disciplinary lesson planning with an English Literature class. Students illustrated topics from Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. The masks and balcony scene are some examples.
Prior to using the scratchboard to make an etching, students will work on various line drawings to explore the creative process and develop their ideas. By discussing their work and assessing it, the final sketch will be selected for etching.
Students will be present their final pieces to the class. Together they will discuss their ideas and application of lines in the foreground, middleground and background. The use of positive and negative space are also discussed.
