ART 115 Basic 2D Design
LCC, Art and Applied Design JS Bird [emailprotected]

Project One:

Create one design using only horizontal and vertical lines. In this design you are
trying to create unity of the picture-plane, a clear and integrated focal point, a
variety of spacing, and areas of rest and areas of activity. When I say spacing I mean
both variety of black lines, and a variety of white spaces.

Please review the PDF introduction to the project carefully. You goal is to
understand the basic design principles, see and identify them in other art work and
then create these principles in your own design. Review it and send questions if you
have any Wednesday, April 8 noon-1:30.


Cut at least 20 strips of black construction paper into lines to use in the
composition. You will cut these lines out of black construction paper using your
utility knife. Make sure to cut on the cutting matt to save your table and to help
cut straight. Use a straight edge to help if you want. DO NOT use scissors. It is
important to become comfortable and confident using the utility knife. Do not
cut yourself either. Cut the lines before you start. We are cutting lines so that
you can move them around quickly and easily in your composition.

a. If you dont have black construction paper yet, use any kind of dark paper.
You WILL need black and grey construction paper this term.

The lines you cut must be straight (no curves) and even, (no angles). Cut a wide
variety of lines. From thin to wide, and long to short. Do not make them more
than 3/8 inch wide. If they get too wide they function as rectangle shapes, not
lines. Cut all the lines before you start working.

Begin by placing the lines on a white 14 x 20 paper from your pad. Place the
black lines in a variety of positions, but only use horizontal and vertical lines.
Refer to the students examples in the introductory PDF. Try many combinations.
Make sure your lines move across the picture plane and touch the outside edges
of the paper. Do not only work in the middle. Try to work from the outside in. If
you want to start with a basic shape like a Tor a cross, try it. EXPERIMENT. Take
pictures of your line sketches to compare them. You goal is to create a focal
point and unity, AND do it in a way that is visually interesting.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT design your composition first with a pencil, just play with
the lines.

Notice when you apply the black lines you also create white shapes. These
shapes can be completely outlined or they can be created with implied lines.
Consult your vocabulary sheet to assist in understanding the principles.

When you have finalized a design, glue it down using the rubber cement. You can
get excess glue on the paper to make sure the lines stay adhered to the paper.
When the excess rubber cement is dry, you can rub it off using the rubber
cement eraser.

Remember your objectives. Create an effective composition with horizontal and
vertical lines

Emphasize the compositional elements of
a. Unity,
b. Variety of Spacing
c. Focal point.
d. Area of rest and area of activity.
e. Use black lines on a white ground.
f. Experiment with multiple designs before gluing.

Review the PDF introduction at Noon Wednesday, April 8 or earlier. Submit the
writing by email by the listed due date on the PDF
The first Composition will be due Noon, Monday, April 13.

Submit a photo of the completed design by the date above. Also submit a
photo of one other design you created before you glued it.

All compositions will be evaluated on the objectives as listed below including
workmanship. Workmanship means clean straight lines and no messy glue smears.

Due Dates & Points
Assignment #3 is due by 12:00pm on Monday, April 20th. This assignment is worth 35 points and a grading rubric
is provided at the end of this handout. Please submit your assignment via the link on Moodle. Late exercises are
graded according to the late policy in the course syllabus.

White Paper; Black Paper; Cutting Mat; Cutting Knife; Ruler; Rubber Cement; Rubber Cement Eraser;
Black Pens (optional)

This assignment builds on your knowledge of point, line, and plane, which are the building blocks of design. From
these elements, designers create typography, animations, textures, patterns, garments, floorplans, buildings and

Design Problem

Using only points and/or lines, represent a weather-related phenomenon.
You may use small dots, points, and marks.
You may use straight, diagonal, or curved lines.
Lines can cross but should not close to create shapes.
Lines can be the same thickness or vary in thickness. The line thickness can change over the line (taper).
Your final solution should be an abstract representation of the phenomenon rather than a recognizable

object or realistic interpretation of the event within a landscape.

Design Process

Look at the completed Assignment #3 examples on Moodle. Theyre under the Week 3 Resources.

Watch the videos on cutting knife safety and cutting straight or curved lines. Theyre on Moodle under

the Tutorial Videos in Course Resources at the top of the page, and under the Week 3 Resources.

Choose a weather phenomenon from the list below.

In pencil, roughly sketch at least ten ideas at one-fourth scale (2 x 2 in.) on a blank piece of paper. Your
finished solution will be 8 x 8 in. square so it would be helpful to generate ideas that will work with that
format. You may use inexpensive printer paper for this step. Consider the whole of the picture plane in
your design.

Choose your favorite solution.

On a piece of white paper from your pad, draw an 8 x 8 in. box, lightly in pencil. Follow the layout
shown below for where to place your square on the page.

Using black paper, execute your favorite solution at actual size within the 8 x 8 in square. You may also
add black pen to your design in addition to the cut paper if it adds to your design.

When finished, please erase the light pencil box around your design so it appears to be floating in the

Take a photograph of your initial process sketches and finished design. Make sure your photographs are
well lit and in focus, and that your design is clearly visible. Upload the photographs to Moodle under the
Assignment #3 link.

Craft: Have you taken care in the execution?

Concept (10 points)

q Are you using only points and/or lines (no closed shapes)?
q Is it an abstract representation (not representational?)
q Can we guess which weather phenomenon you are representing?
q Have you created visual interest through use of design elements or principles?
q Does the design convey a mood or feeling (hot, cold, wet, dry, craggy, smooth, stable, turbulent)?
q Does the composition sit balanced within the square? Or is it purposefully off-balance?

Creativity (10 points)

q Is it a solution weve never seen before?
q Have you surprised us? Are you thinking outside of the box?
q Has the detail and execution of the design taken extra time to complete?
q Is it aesthetically beautiful?

Process (10 points)

q Did you complete ten brainstorming sketches to start (remember to upload a photo of your sketches)?
q Do your sketches demonstrate thought and iteration (design process)?
q Does your design fit within the 8 x 8 in. square?
q Are you using only black paper and/or pen to create your marks?
q Have you erased the outline around your 8 x 8 in square so your design appears to be floating?

design elements: the building blocks used by
artists to create designs; artists apply design
elements to produce the design principles

design principles: describe the ways artists
use design elements to achieve desired visual

design process: the process through which
an artist seeks visual solutions to a design

Theres no right answer to a design problem,
although some solutions are more or less

There are multiple, possible solutions. Your
job as a designer is try to find the strongest

Design process is iterative. This means that it
is repetitive – you try one thing and then
circle back to evaluate, revise, and refine.

Thumbnail sketches are small, quick, rough
sketches for testing compositions.

Allow you to place major elements to see
if the composition is pleasing and balanced.

Think about the page as a whole.

Imagine a series of grid lines running across
your paper that divides the page into thirds
both horizontally and vertically.

For balanced and dynamic compositions,
place major elements along these lines or at
their points of intersection.

Types of Line:

actual line: any drawn line or contour

implied line: a line created by positioning
a series of points so that the eye tends to
automatically connect them

psychic line: a mental connection between two
points or elements; there is no real line, not
even intermittent points, yet we feel a line
