Blog Prompts: 336

This page provides blog prompts for each blog entry that is due. Please review guidelines each time you post. Remember, posts are due before class begins (see schedule).

Blog #1: Point, Line, Plane

Write a short essay that explains your understanding of how compositional elements can be broken down in points, lines, and planes. Include at least three different images (these should be the images you captured using a digital camera for class on Tuesday, 8/28), one for each element. You may address the concept of space/volume if you wish. Can you also explain how the relative scale of a compositional element can affect our perception of whether it functions primarily as a point, a line, or a plane?

See these sample posts for reference (sample post 1 and sample post 2) and make sure you have read the posting guidelines.

Blog #2: Texture

Post the photo or photos you plan to use for Project 1: Textural Interpretation. Also post the descriptive paragraph you have written for your photo(s). Your description should be very thorough and focus on the formal characteristics of the image (what vocabulary and concepts can your use from your reading?). Ideally, someone could imagine your texture without being able to see it or feel it just by reading your paragraph(s).

Make sure to review the posting guidelines before you post.
