Our latest design project was titled “Subdivision of a groundsheet”, we choose four of our favorite thumbnails; one of horizontal or verticle lines, one of diagonal lines, one of curved line, and one using all three. We then cut pieces of black construction paper and glue them onto four white 8-by-10 inch groundsheets to demonstrate it using excellent craftsmanship.
In class we did a critique on everyones pieces, but just one of them.
Everyones favorite of mine was the curved line design. Below are all the comments that were made:
“It is very whimsical”
“A new approach to a common assignment”
“Out of the box thinking”
“It is as it’s going to fly off the page, it has great rhythm”
“More of a shape than lines, 3D”
“Need to work on your sharpness of lines, no fuzzy construction paper edges.”
Overall the critique was a fun learning experience and I’m looking forward to more of them!
