For this assignment you will be introduced to sculpture and 3D artwork. Although you my notactually produce a piece of sculpture itself, you will develop, plan and make 'painting' of yoursculpture and produce a maquette (small model).This assignment is designed to allow you to use the human figure as the subject of your work, youshould demonstrate that you understand basic concepts of structure and anatomy in yoursketchbooks (task 1) and then apply your knowledge and understanding to help you create your finalresponse. This could be a traditional study of the human form, or it could be an imaginative responseusing shape, line and colour to represent the human form.
Task 1
 - Planning and preparation:
For this task you will use the theme of the human figure for the subject of your work. So beginby deciding on a theme (subject) for your work. Try to consider the many different ways thatthe human figure can create shape and form such as: Dancers, Athletes, Yoga, Football andrugby players. Collect a variety of source images for inspiration to help you with this task. Many good sourcesfor images and pictures are magazines, taking photographs, websites and books. Or you maychoose to study a real person, perhaps a member of your class or somebody from anotherclass such as Dance, Drama, PE etc.Your final painting should consist of, and use an appropriate background too. therefore youmay need to collect a second set of source images to help you develop and use an interestingand effective background for your work. Begin this task in your sketchbook, illustrate your thoughts, intensions and process by makinga Bubble Diagram Click on the document icon on the assignment page (EXPLORE) to see anexample. To help you make your bubble diagram, you may like to use an online tool calledBubbleUs, then you can print out a clear version of your diagram to stick into yoursketchbook. Click on the weblink icon (EXPLORE) to go to this tool.
Task 2a
 - Drawing the basic human figure:
Before you begin work on your own idea, it is important that you complete some work on'Basic Figure drawing'. Using a full page in your sketchbook, draw a full-size human figure thatillustrates structure and proportion. To help you do this there are two video tutorials whichyou can watch inside the GCSE Art eTv area. Use the eTv icon on the assignment page to go tothis content, and load the video's into the player using the menu/ list above the player on thepage. Watch the videos and then copy this activity into your sketchbooks using a full page.Click on the 2nd Weblink icon on the assignment page to access a worksheet which you canalso use to work from for this task.Do TWO figure studies, the first one should be an outline with labels and annotations, thesecond should be 'animated' and include some shade and tone.
Task 2b
 - Drawing the basic human figure:
Your next task is to work directly from a life model. You will gain marks for A01 during thistask, as well as gain experience and understanding of the Human Figure.Click on the 2nd Weblink icon to access a worksheet for you to follow. Print this worksheetout if needed.The objective of this task is for you to work from two life-models: Malcolm and Mavis.Use the two virtual models to work from, apply the bubble-bloke technique to your work tohelp your drawing use structure and proportion. All of your studies should fill yoursketchbook pages.If you provide more evidence of this type of development you will gain more marks, afterworking with Malcolm and Mavis, perhaps work from other models, ask friends, members of the family or find other ways to work from the human figure.
