Portfolio design (major grade) Due August 28th
Steps: Watch the video provided if you are confused. And the grading rubric
- On the paper provided, fold the paper in half, hamburger style and tape the two sides together so that your supplies will not fall out. After you constructed it, take your ruler and create a two inch box on the portfolio.
- Draw your name large in block or bubble lettering inside the drawn box. Avoid skinny lettering! You will need to fill the letters with texture later on. Use the lettering from the pictures provided or google them.
- create various textures in each letter, this should be created in pen/thin sharpie to eliminate smudging when applying color pencil.
- Using the circle template, draw 7 circles of different sizes. Your circles can overlap and go off the page
- 2 circles need to be in warm and cool color pencil. This was a demonstration completed in class, this was also done on a technique sheet.
- the rest of the circles must have something breaking in or breaking out of them. This is where you get to use your imagination.
- Grab a long ruler, trace the ruler 5 times in different directions, lift your pencil to allow the traced ruler to go under the circles and lettering
- Withing the 5 lines you can choose to color fade any colors you choose as long as they are not complementary or color opposites.
- One of the long rectangles needs to have; feathers, fish scales, fur and snake scales. Or just a fun color fade

How will we know if they’ve learned it?
Students will have a portfolio showcasing their knowledge of following directions, the elements and principles of design, color theory and texture.
What will we do if they don’t learn it?
Students will be re-taught and can utilized videos to re-work missing elements of their assignment.
What will we do if they have / have already learned?
Students can always go above and beyond the instructions to create a more challenging experience.
