Architecture Update

OK, now we've had the London trip you should all have the imagery you need to really accelerate with your projects. The remainder of this week and next week should be spent developing responses to your London imagery and planning your final piece.The final 2 weeks of the project should be dedicated to the production of your chosen project outcome.
From your London photos you should be making drawings, prints, collages and starting to combine media to create multi layered images. This may involve using techiques such as PhotoShop, acetate collage, spray stencils, carbon printing, painting and the inclusion of text elements.
As a guide you should have the following (as a minimum) in your sketchbook by Monday 3rd February:

Pre trip work:
  • Selection of your best photos from the College architecture.
  • Research into 2 modern Architects (see the brief for names).
  • 1 or more sustained full page pencil tonal drawings based on your College photos.
  • 1 or more controlled linear (fineliner/biro) drawings based on your College photos.
  • At least 2 additional drawings exploring alternative media/technique - these could be faster more expressive pieces.
  • 1 good Gold Card print from your College photos.
  • At least one Collage/mixed media piece developed from your College imagery.
 Post Trip work:
  • Selection of your best photos from the London Trip.
  • Research into 2 Artists/Designers whose work is inspired or influenced by Architecture (see the brief for names). If you know what you are planning for your final piece then try to find at least one practitioner whose work has a clear relationship to your intentions - so if you are planning a sculptural garment look at a Fashion Designer/collection that extends the body through structural garments.
  • A sustained full page pencil tonal drawings based on your London photos.
  • And/or a controlled linear (fineliner/biro) drawing.
  • At least 2 additional drawings exploring alternative media/technique - these could be faster more expressive pieces.
  • 1 or more good Gold Card print from your London photos.
  • At least 1 sustained and successful piece of monoprinting
  • At least 2 Collage/mixed media pieces developed from your London imagery.
  • Other experiments e.g. Carbon prints, spray stencils, PhotoShop, painting - ideally these approaches should be combined to create multi-layered images.
  • Visual planning and notes that outline your intentions for your project outcome (this might be combined with your experiments in the bullet point above). The nature of this planning might be very different from person to person, it could take the form of Fashion Drawings, experiments with 3D media, storyboards for animation or many other things.
