We started this project with 16 3x3" squares of still life sketches. From those sketches we selected 9 final sketches which would would trasfer to 4x4" squares. The final step in the project's process is the inking of the 9 drawings.

The Composition and Line Project required three basic steps to produce a quality design. Those three steps include, Expansive Thinking, Editing, and Final Execution. Expansive thinking encouraged students to experiment with materials and make several sketches. Editing is one of the more obvious steps. Students were encouraged to limit their design to complimentary images, keeping Gestalt's theories in mind. This piece was done on 18"x24" paper with 9 4"x4" squares.
