Intro: Make a Modern Drawing
Even with the most limited drawing skills you can make a neat drawing totally worthy of that coveted space on the freezer for everyone to see.
>about 30 minutes of free time
Step 1: Think for a Minute....
Find things that interest you and write it in one area of the white paper
Things I find interesting...
-lines with dots
writing in different sizes will make the drawing interesting.
Make sure you will use the whole page.
Step 2: Internet
look these things up on the internet to find pictures of them to imitate...
do your best and draw big. simplify complex images with outlines of them or just put your paper on your monitor and trace them (lightly!).
put them on the paper and connect them!
Step 3: Draw Lines
now draw radiating lines from some things and draw shape patterns in other areas. you want to draw on the whole page!
fill it up with nonsense. scribbles- the word "onomatopoeia"...
circles, x's, the shape of a paperclip, jab at the paper with the marker. make it interesting. make some outlines stronger.
this is really art- I'm totally serious.
Step 4: The Once Over...
look at your drawing....
color in areas. make sure that there are no gaping holes. color in areas that look wierd. having sark and light areas will make the picture interesting.
By the end you should have very little clues that you wrote your ideas on the page.
the patterns will make the picture interesting and people will really be interested in your art!
Step 5: Voila!
your new modern art drawing is ready to be under a magnet on the freezer.
Or posted out on your cubicle.
Be proud! You are an artist and you just drew some lines and wrote some words!
Great job. Have fun!
