AP Studio VISUAL SURVEY Assignment
- After reading the “Personal Information” survey take two pages of your journal. Divide two pages of your journal into 14 panels. The size of these panels is up to you, but you must occupy the entire two pages.
- One of these panels (your choice) will be your title panel, labeled “Personal Information.”
- Number the rest of your panels small and neatly in the top left corner from 1-13. (They don’t need to be chronologically ordered.)
You will be responding to the “Personal Information Sheet.” There are some rules to this:
- You may only respond to four of the questions in writing. The rest you must respond to visually.
- You may draw in any medium of your choosing but no graphite pencils allowed.
- You must incorporate color in at least three of the panels using a medium like colored pencils, makers or watercolor.
- You must apply mixed media in at least three of the panels: Mixed media can include: newspaper, photos, online printouts, business cards, found objects (flat so your journal can close), fabric, foil etc.
- Pay close attention to layout. Arrange your panels with consideration of balance and rhythm. Avoid disjointed schemes that neglect areas of the page.
- The goal is to work fast. Once you’ve actually gathered your materials and have planned your drawn your panels and thought about your layout, spend no more than 10 minutes on each panel. Prep / planning: 1 hr. Execution: 1.5 hrs
