Art Question

Learning Goal: I’m working on a art project and need the explanation and answer to help me learn.

Art Assignments
Over the semester you will have two creative art assignments paired with a one-page reflection
each. Reflections should be written in MLA format with Times New Roman 12 point double

Project 2 Sol Lewitt Line Drawings
Early on in the semester we talked about Sol Lewitt and his line drawings. Lewitts works all
stem from sets of instructions that he made. Many of his pieces have been completed by people
other than himself, and his works are reproducible even today after his death. His instructions are
often open to interpretation depending on the person executing them. For this activity, you will
use his instructions to create your own line drawing, and you will reflect with a classmate on
how yours compares and contrasts to theirs.
Make a drawing by following the instructions below.
o 1. Find a piece of paper and a writing utensil (or multiple, be creative if you
o 2. Draw 24 tiny circles anywhere on a piece of paper.

In your reflection, discuss the differences between your drawings
o Please include the name of the classmate so that I can compare drawings and see
what you did.

Please submit an image of your drawing (cellphone images are fine!) along with your 1-page reflection
