SHAPE & VALUE RUBRIC: OBSERVATIONAL DRAWING

Objectives
You completed a drawing (9”x12”) in either regular pencil on white paper OR white charcoal pencil on black paper. You used shape and value to show the form of the object and the values in the background. You avoided the use of outlines in your drawing. You avoided smudging / smearing in your drawing.

YOUR NAME:

Design
You created a strong composition in your drawing by considering the size, view, placement (and cropping and zooming) of the object on your page. You composed your drawing to focus on your object, and avoid including too much blank / negative space.

Studio Skills
You used materials appropriately to represent form by focusing on shape & value. Your drawing shows a complete range (“all seven” on our value scales) of values - light, middle, and dark. You used your time productively, appropriately, and safely during every class. You took care of the art materials and voluntarily assisted in clean-up on a daily basis.

Presentation
Your drawings are free from tears, smudges and stray marks. You used your material with consistency: your marks appear similar to each other throughout the drawing. Your work shows effort to complete the drawings. You took the time to complete your best work.
