Vocabulary Grid Technique – method of enlarging a small image with the use of a grid of squares. Foreshortening - method of rendering a specific object or figure in a picture to create distorted depth. Often the artist or photographer shoots the photograph at an unusual angle to produce the look of forced perspective, and the illusion of space.

Drawing Pencils 101 Ebony –soft, dense graphite pencil. Can create smooth textures and wide range of values.

GOALS I WILL… 1. Take, crop, and print an original photo. 2. Accurately create a grid to aid in the drawing of my portrait. 3. Transfer my image, using my grid, to my drawing paper, in correct proportions. 4. Create a full range of values and textures. 5. Take care of my materials.
Tips for Success Utilize the materials available to you. Slow and steady wins the race! Take your time with the contour of your drawing. Erase your grid after your contour drawing is completed. Pay close attention to texture and value.
