Previously on display at Collins Memorial Library:

Big Ideas about Drawing

These books completed by the Painting & Drawing class at Charles Wright Academy explore three big ideas about drawing in an exquisite book format.  As a culmination of our semester studying drawing, students were asked to find a single object and to create three unique drawings of it. Each drawing represents a big idea about drawing:

  • The first drawing, a straightforward direct observational drawing of the object represents Drawing as Perception – drawing in which the artist explores, observes, and investigates in order to understand the world.
  • The second drawing, a structural break down of the object into basic shapes represents Drawing as Communication – drawing in which the artist makes ideas, thoughts and feelings available to others.
  • The third drawing, an imaginative reinterpretation of the object represents Drawing as Invention – drawing in which the artist explores possibilities and experiments with media.
