Tools Progress List and Research (IVAN'S GROUP)

By the end of this week 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 A3 stick and ink drawing.
    • A3 chalk and charcoal drawing onto midtoned paper.
    • At least one Gold Card plate cut and several prints taken from it.
    • A3 collage base drawing.
    • At least one good detailed monoprint.
    • 4 pages research work into Jim Dine's Tool drawings and the Collage work of Florian Nicolle (see below).
    • 2 or more experiments with food dyes and bleach (working over photocopies).
    • Several experiments with spray stencilling, cut at least one stencil and play with different backgrounds, repeating, offsetting and rotating your stencil, combine colours.
    • Some creative use of the photocopier, inverting images and colours ...but be selective, don't fill your book with loads of photocopying - that starts to give the impression you are looking for shortcuts.
    • At least one strong acetate collage piece, worked into with stitch. A careful A4 carbon print.
    • 2 pages of research into an Artist who uses spraypaint (see separate post for guidance).
    • A word processed evaluation.
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!
