GEORGIA CYBER ACADEMYK12 Academic Integrity Policy:
Assessments, such as quizzes, and tests, are a critical part of any academic program. They offer important information about your progress toward mastery. But this information is helpful only if it is accurate. And it can be accurate only if the assessment represents your work andonlyyour work.
Unless otherwise instructed by your teacher or by a specific assessment, you are expected to honor the following principles while taking assessments:You and you alone will take the assessment.You will not copy or redistribute any part of the assessment in any wayelectronically, verbally, or on paper.You will treat the assessment as "closed book"meaning that you may not use any textbooks, references, or other materials (printed or electronic) during the assessmentunless your teacher or the specific assessment otherwise instructs (for example, you are specifically told to refer to certain pages in a book as part of the assessment).You will treat the assessment as "single browser"meaning that during the assessment you may not log in a second time to your course, or open your course or related materials on another browser on another computer.Your answers will represent your work andonlyyour work, free of any outside assistance. You will not plagiarize in any way.You will not confer with other students, family members, or acquaintances, either in person or through electronic communication, during the assessment.You will be asked to submit written assignments for teachers to grade. Your written work must be completely free of plagiarism. Plagiarism is copying another person's work without providing direct reference to the author, original print material, or website. Put simply, always give credit where it is due. Be sure to ask your teacher if you have questions regarding citing sources. Schools have Web tools available to check for student plagiarism.
You may also be asked to submit oral assignments for teachers to grade. Your oral work must be completely free of plagiarism. Plagiarism in such assignments includes copying another person's work without providing direct reference to the author, having another person provide your recording, and so on.

One of your fellow artists Landi Abercrombie has asked if any of you would like to show off your art. If you would like to take part in this submit the work to me via Kmail and I will forward it to Landi.
Assignment 8 Negative Space DrawingPositive / negative drawing
For assignment 8 we will create a positive negative drawing using only contour lines and one color pencil. To create this drawing you will need to find an interesting object which you can draw for multiple days while it remains untouched.
You will then create a drawing using only the contour line to help define the positive and negative spaces. The positive space in a work of art is the space taken by the subject or subjects.
The negative space is the area around the subject. Both negative and positive spaces are equally important to consider when creating a piece of art.
In this assignment you will draw the object then color in the negative space leaving the positive area blank.
Examples of Negative Space drawings
Assignment 9 Vantage point architectural drawings! Okay so you are really going to like this assignment (maybe). Brief description of the assignment- You are going to create a drawing of at least three, four inch buildings. Each should have a door and a window. You should include as much details as possible. Once you have completed the geometric shapes, add some organic trees and objects.In this drawing every geometric line is drawn with a ruler and to one of each vanishing point.Materials needed- sketchbook, drawing pad, pencil, eraser, and your ruler.Watch the recorded video, posted on the wiki page, on how to do a proper vantage point drawing.Assignment 9 Terms to know: Horizon line or vanishing line-Vanishing point-Vertical lines-Horizontal lines-Diagonal lines-Attendance surveyHere is the attendance survey:https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1PCVuEXO2FaRBwxNP3q_uyuigq8yobBCa3j5PEPcHrhw/viewformCode word: Vantage 11Drawing Videohttp://thevirtualinstructor.com/twopointperspective.html
Assignment 9Okay, so here is how its done: We are going to do a practice one first in your sketchbook.Step one create a vanishing line (aka horizon line). Do this by drawing a straight line across the page, somewhere in the middle to upper third of the page.Assignment 9Step two: Place two vanishing points at each end of the line.Step three: Draw a vertical line using your ruler somewhere below your vanishing line. The line should at least three inches. Place two points at the top and bottom of the line. Assignment 9Step four: Draw two diagonal lines from the bottom of the vertical line to each vanishing point on the horizon line. One line in each direction. Step five: Draw another two diagonal lines from the top of the vertical line to each of the vanishing points. This will create the front two walls of your first building.Step six- Now draw two additional vertical lines along the bottom diagonal lines. One of each direction to the top diagonal lines. Place points on the top of these lines.Step seven: Now we are going to put the top on our building. This is a bit tricky but too bad. Follow this closely. You are to draw two lines from the top of each newly drawn vertical lines to the OPPOSITE vanishing point.Step eight: Now you have your building base. For step eight you need to start on your next building. Draw a new vertical line somewhere outside of first building but along your bottom diagonal lines. You can use the other diagonal lines or draw the vertical line pass those to create a tall new building. Follow the earlier steps to finish the new building. Once you have finished your three buildings erase the lines you dont need.
Once you have drawn at least three buildings you can start drawing building details. This is the fun part. Add details like doors and windows, maybe signs or interior details from a window. Your imagination is the only limit. Remember every geometric line (not organic) goes to one of the vanishing points.
