T/AP students spent their day with artist Heyd Fontenot in the lab working on a set of final drawings. After Heyd explained the assignment, students spent the rest of the class time rendering a portrait as the culmination of their figure-drawing skills so far.

This week we began by looking at some Brice Marden drawings. After looking at the way that he broke up the rectangle, we created our own studies where we broke up a rectangle using 9 lines, and then broke up another rectangle using 23 lines.
