This is a project I do with my Drawing II students. It is different that the traditional media they are used to, and has a very high success rate!

1. Students will choose an image. I usually suggest things that already show texture. I sometimes posterize the image in photoshop for them so it is easier to break down the values.
2. Cover the back of the drawing with white chalk and place over the clayboard. Tape the image down and go over the lines with pencil.
3. Remove the image and begin with the lightest areas of your image. Remind students that once you remove the black, you can not put it back unless you want to touch it up with India Ink (It doesn't perfectly match!)
4. continue filling in areas without outlining until the illustration is complete.

Students will be assessed with the attached rubric.

Contrast, Line, Texture
