Background For Teachers:
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Discuss what texture is and where it might be found. Send student out into the classroom, school, or school yard to with a piece of paper and a pencil. Ask students to find 5-10 different textures and do a 'rubbing' of each of them. They do this by laying the paper on the object and coloring over the top of it. When the students return, discuss the different textures and how each of the textures look rendered in pencil.
Discuss the difference between real texture and implied texture: Bring in a painting with texture created with the paint. Let the students feel the texture. Bring in a picture with implied texture.
Complete worksheet: Complete worksheet along with discussion on types of implied texture, and ways to create texture with pen and ink.
Students must be able to render a sphere, cylinder, box, and cone using one of the pen and ink techniques discussed in the worksheet. They must be able to demonstrate the use of the five properties in light and shade.
Discuss how some pictures use combinations of pen and ink techniques: Have students complete worksheet two using each of the ink techniques so that it is rendered similar to the example given.
When students have demonstrated their understanding of the different techniques of pen and ink and are able to render objects in a mastery level, they are ready to start their final project. Each student should bring into class a picture of an animal in black and white. If they need to, they can copy a photo on the copier. Students should look for a clear photo with strong lighting. They should begin by sketching out the animal lightly in pencil, masking in shadows. Once the sketch is finished, the students will be ready to begin inking in their project using the best technique for that particular animal. A reminder, to make an animal look realistic, the highlight in the eye is very important.
