Master Copy Collaborations

For this project, students are introduced to the process of copying drawings and paintings after the masters, both historical and contemporary. By copying after the masters, students discern the working process of the masters. Students begin by blocking in the figure, then progressing through the process of creating, and finally finishing the image. Other lessons include composition of the work and how the master developed a drawing, direction of light, perspective, and the approach of the master in applying value, creating what is called the effect, a 3-dimensional quality. The students work together to complete the final image; each student receives a portion of the work, and they build their individual piece while conferring with the group. Copying the work of great artists gives students a valuable insight into the way these artists worked, and by using their same techniques, students can build a solid foundation of skills they can utilize for the rest of their artistic careers.

Finished projects are available for viewing in the Visual Arts Studio (Room 615) at the Horace Sisk (HOS) building between 12 noon to 1 p.m., after 4 p.m., and 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on Fridays.
