The 2nd day of our introduction to drawing eyes, we watched a video tutorial and students were encouraged to look up other time-lapse videos, photographs of eyes, pencil drawings of eyes, and step-by-step instructions. Below are some examples of the eye sketches that were created after a little bit of guidance and instruction.
Students in Drawing A were given the opportunity to look up some ideas for projects that they would like to create throughout the semester. One of these projects recommended by multiple students was an image of an eye with a scene reflected inside. As a way to start this project, the students spent 1 class period just drawing eyes from memory (they did not look at images of instructions on this day). Below are some examples; as you can see some students haven't had much (or any) experience with drawing eyes, while others have had some experience with it.
These are some in progress examples of our "assigned object project". Each student was given a group of 5 objects; they could choose 1 to eliminate but needed to design on scene that incorporated the other 4 objects or references to them. Some of the objects included images of animals, life jackets, musical instruments, buttons, paper clips, and flowers. The life jacket could represent water, the button could be shown as a circle, clothing, or reflected in someones eyes.
