Chaos and Control in Google Classroom

Beautiful/ Decay Chaos and Control

This next assignment gives you two separate visual cues colliding into one, much like a yin/yang energy. 
How can you represent the aspects of chaos and control in a visual piece? 


Is it : with dark and light elements, jagged and organic shapes, or maybe complex and simple designs coming together? 

You can use collage elements or pen and ink to create this piece. Feel free to use color as well! 
These images below have some aspect of this idea...although the third down just seems organized and settled, don't you think? How could chaos be inserted into this piece?

Sketchbook Personalization and Image to Class

In Class: Use the acrylic pens to create an interesting design for your sketchbook cover, one that identifies the sketchbook as yours! 

Bring to class an image or name of an image that we can search online of a work of ART that you admire. I also said that you can bring a picture of something in your home that is up on the wall. We are going to investigate why it is you like this piece while introducing elements and principles of design.
