Progress Checklist for Tools Project + Research (FOR PAUL'S GROUP)

By the end of Wednesday 16th September the work for the Tools project you should have completed is:

  • At least 1 sustained pencil drawing of your tool completed from direct observation.
  • A series of thoughtfully lit and composed photographs of your tool, best ones printed out at A5/A4 and put in sketchbook.
  • 2 or more other drawings of your tool in your sketchbook, these could be in pencil/biro/fineliner.
  • Expressive large scale charcoal and/or stick and ink drawings.
  • A3 chalk and charcoal drawing onto midtoned paper.
  • Minimum of one well finished carbon print.
  • At least one Gold Card plate cut and several prints taken from it.
  • A3 collage base drawing.
  • At least one good detailed monoprint.
  • One or more cut silhouette paper collages.
  • Minimum of 1 food dye and bleach experiment, working into a copy of an existing print/drawing.
  • At least 2 images created with spray stencils, try overlays and consider using photocopies of existing work as a base. 
  • 2 pages of research into an Artist who uses spraypaint (see separate post for more detail).
  • 4 pages research work into Jim Dine's Tool drawings and the Collage work of Florian Nicolle (see below).

Two pages of research into the Tool drawings of Jim Dine and the same for the mixed media collage work of Florian Nicolle - find good reproductions of their work, give a brief bit of background information about each Artist, provide some analysis and personal opinion on at least 2 specific images by each of them and make at least one visual response of your own to each Artist's work (this should be an interpretation of your tool in the style of each Artist).
If you get the opportunity there is currently an exhibition of Jim Dine's work (including some of his Tools prints) at the Alan Cristea galleries on Cork Street in London (Piccadilly or Green Park tube). Have a great day out in London and enhance your Art education as a part of it - win, win!
