Due: September 5
Using our art supplies, make a poster that illustrates contrast. Non-digital.
- Use white 9" x 12" paper as the foundation for your design.
- Design it in landscape format: with the 12" edge going left-to-right and the 9" edge going top-to-bottom.
- You can use any of the available materials to complete your ad: markers, colored pencils, crayons, rulers, compasses, colored paper, scissors, glue. Do not cut pictures from magazines.
- Start your design in pencil so you can make adjustments before you finalize your design.
- Design your poster with the following elements:
- The word "contrast" should appear three times in three very different styles of lettering.
- Each time, the letters in the word "contrast" should be at least two inches high.
- Restrict your color selection to three very different (contrasting) colors plus the white of the paper. Using only three colors will unify your poster.
- Put a contrasting background rectangle behind the word "contrast" at least once.
- Thick "bubble" letterforms will work best for this. Do your best to create outlines for the letters and fill them in, rather than writing the word "contrast" with simple handwriting.
- Make it neatly. Use a ruler. Take your time.
Here is an example with red, black and yellow, along with the white of the page:
The best six to nine posters will be displayed on the wall throughout the year.
