Practice drawing your balls using basket hatches to show effective three dimensional form using light shade and shadow.

Each of your four balls must be perfectly round.
The horizontal part of your basket hatched line must be appear to form ovals.
The vertical part of the basket hatch must show perfect symmetry.
The tone must fade gradually from light to dark.
The light must show a sharp edge of white light at the top of the last ball.
There must be a loose hatch shadow at the base of the ball.

Create an equilibrium still life using a range of food and random objects.
Write sentence describing the image, make it sound profound (thought provoking).
Photograph the display and email it to me at ssinclair @spsch.org
The image should be sharp (good picture quality) and have a good balance of contrast (black areas should be black and white areas should be white).

If you do not have access to a camera do use the Art room camera during Art Club. Tues, Weds, Thurs lunch time 1.30-1.55.

Texture grid

Instructions to draw the frame
Divide the page in half, horizontally (across the middle of the page from left to right). Then draw a line horizontally above and below the middle line so that you have 4 equal rectangles.
Divide the page in half vertically (down from the top of the page to the bottom). Then divide the two halves vertically on the left and on the right in half.
You should now have 16 equal boxes. If the boxes are not equal (the same size) start again!

Produce a collage grid of textures and write one word below each texture to describe how it feels.
Think about the tactile qualities of each surface.

Tone grid

Instructions to draw the frame
Divide the page in half, horizontally (across the middle of the page from left to right). Then draw a line horizontally above and below the middle line so that you have 4 equal rectangles.
Divide the page in half vertically (down from the top of the page to the bottom). Then divide the two halves vertically on the left and on the right in half.
You should now have 16 equal boxes. If the boxes are not equal (the same size) start again!

Line and Linear Mark-making
Now we can show tone using the following linear mark. Gradually increase the tone in each box from left (lightest tone) to right (darkest tone).
On the first line draw:
Loose hatches (single diagonal lines).
On the second line draw:
Cross hatches (single diagonal lines that cross diagonally in two directions).
On the third line draw:
Doubled cross hatches (single diagonal lines that cross diagonally, vertically and horizontally).
On the fourth line draw:
Geometrical dots (dots that line up neatly, vertically and horizontally) to show tone slowly increasing in each box.

Criteria
Each box should contain more lines and look visibly darker from left to right.
Your work should be very neat!

Produce 10 doodles on page 9 to reflect your mind map about equilibrium from page 8 of your sketchbook. Use any medium pencil, pen or colouring pencils but do not use felt tips or any wet medium as these will discolour page 10.

Think about objects that could be fun or interesting for you to draw. Also think about balanced hanging or leaning objects too.
