Project: Curve Lines + CompositionThis project has 2 parts:
Goal 1: Design 10 inch vertical lines of varying activity, These lines must work together to create contrast, tension and shape. They must differ in direction, activity and proportion. No parallels or bottlenecks.
- line 1: slow/ inactive curve
- line 2: more curve
- line 3: increased activity (transitional line)
- line 4: active line with a shape
(closure is a consideration in line 4, not others)
Goal 2: Arrange the 4 lines into a composition in a (10x 10)" square. Lines cannot touch or overlap in the composition and must enter and exit the picture plain vertically. In order to control interval, the students can use the lines to define a major and minor shape-- they cannot incorporate side edges as part of their shape. Major and minor shapes relate to enclosed areas and the distinction between two should be extreme (contrast).
