Sustained Drawing Based on da Vinci Sketchbooks Due November 30 Drawing is a skill that can be learned and should be practiced. Leonardo da Vinci kept many notebooks and produced thousands of sketches. He sketched the world around him, people he observed, and inventions he wanted to create. (Look up images for examples of his work- your text contains Vitruvian Man and a page from his anatomy book.) In this assignment, you will practice your observational skills by drawing something, anything. It could be an item in your home, a person you know (or don’t know), or an object in nature. Look around you- what intrigues you? OR you may draw ideas for an invention, ala Leonardo style. Draw for a minimum of 15 minutes. You may produce just one drawing or perhaps a few. I will not judge your drawing skill but your effort.

Unformatted text preview: Remember- the more you practice, the better you become. Requirements : Use standard 8 x 11 paper (9x12 is okay). Pencil is preferred. If you use charcoal or pastel, you must use fixative. Subject matter should reflect what Leonardo da Vinci drew in his sketchbooks. What you draw must be either something real and observed (not from a photo) or an invention. Try to capture the style of his drawings. You may include text to describe the object(s) as well. Dont forget the correct heading! You may put it on the back of your paper, but align the paper vertically and place the heading on the upper left hand side. Due in class on November 30. I wont accept assignments turned in early or assignments turned in after class....
