Final Folio (Due at beginning of Final Critique)
3.1 Final 4-Day In-Class Drawing (Nov. 30 – Dec. 7)
3.2 Final Homework Assignment

Homework Assignment:
You will be doing a self-portrait from direct observation using a mirror. This should be a head and shoulders, portrait composition. If you like, you can explore the space around you with a setting, or you can simply work with negative space surrounding the figure. Think about light, the position of the head, what you are wearing. Little elements like these, when carefully considered, can really help a work become interesting and expressive. Use charcoal and Strathmore. If you’d like to work on a larger scale, you can pick up a piece of Arches Cover or BFK Rives at the bookstore.
