Art Club Tuesday - Drawing to realize ideas: Week Two

We looked at some Artists you suggested.
We looked at Andy Warhol's work, found at the Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, PA and Sister Corita's work, examples found at the Corita Art Center in Hollywood, CA.  Graphical excitement.
We looked at images of paintings by Vincent Van Gogh, Henri Matisse, William Morris, Annie Pootoogook,  Emilly Carr and Henry Moore, and images of the sword props and a film poster from The Hobbit (Peter Jackson-Director, Simon Bright-Supervising Art Director). A wide array of influences for our exploration.

We talked out a mental map of connections between the works by connecting their relationships to line, form, and ways of conveying detail, and then decided to draw using anything from these artworks for inspiration.We created random doodle images as a base using ink, pastel, and marker. This led us into some finished doodles, some new geometric work and some ideas for our sketchbooks.
