This is always a popular drawing project for our junior grades in high school because it allows for so much creativity and it's a real challenge!
It asks students to create a METAMORPHOSIS drawing that takes one object, and transforms it into another.
The final artwork has to be coloured with pencil crayons using value.
So it's partially an observational drawing (the first step), and then they draw 3 more drawings showing this object transforming (example - sunglasses into a lily flower).
The project is super scaffolded on the handout:
-they start with sketching and notes in their sketchbooks
-they start their final drawing
((2 options are given, to allow for maximum creativity, plus students love choice)
-they mat their final artwork on bristol board
The handout includes a STEP-BY-STEP project breakdown, exemplars, and a rubric to make marking easy for you.
It's a flexible project in that sometimes I do it in pairs, sometimes I make them use pen and ink techniques, etc. It can be changed to suit your class needs.
