Project Description

The project for this class will be to post your work in progress as you follow through the class videos.  You can post the designs you have created along with me, and you can also post any of your own that you have come up with along the way.  As an added challenge you can use the assorted shape framework I provide and explain in the last lesson to fill a page with your designs.

I have provided 5 downloads for you to follow along the course.  They print out best on 8.5 x 11 paper.  

The first two downloads are the sets of shape frameworks we use in each lesson.  I place a blank piece of paper over top of the framework page so I can see it through the blank paper.  This way I can use the frameworks as guides for my design, but the lines of the framework will not interfere with my final design.  

The next two downloads are the line art that we work on in the lessons.  I provide these so you can see them up close and practice any styles you like with it right in front of you.  

The last download is the assorted shape framework that I use to fill my page.  You can make these yourself by placing any shapes you would like all over your page and then filling them with your designs.
