In this unit, students will create a graphite photo-realistic portrait with a pattern background.
The unit includes five exercises, one finished composition, a rubric and reflection.
Background Patterns Exercise
This exercise helps you make compositional decisions - thinking about negative space as well as positive space, organic and geometric shapes, and practice using proper glue technique.
Use Kehindy Wiley and Retna as visual references for your pattern background templates. Check out the Powerpoint to refresh your memory.
