This is a great video on how to make a notan square. This we will do in our altered books!! We are going to use a Noton Square to emphasize the principle of Contrast in our altered books today!
We are beginning our first production assignment this week. We will be looking at the artist Audrey Flack and be creating our own photorealistic recreations of her work using a grid technique. This project will review using a grid to create accurate proportions as well as using color blending to match colors and values.
For rhythm, we will be creating an Op Art Line design across a 2-page spread in our visual journal. Check out the simple directions in the file below and follow along with my demo video!

Our final altered book page is going to be to create pattern using a SIMPLE stamp that we have carved ourselves. Please check out the video below to see how you can draw out, carve, and then print from your stamp to make really cool designs from a simple stamp!
Check out these other really cool examples below from Julie Fei-Fan Balzer who started #CarveDecember !
We are going to create our stamp and then use it to create pattern on the inside covers of our altered books!!!
Below is the final checklist for your altered book. The cover counts as a project grade by itself and the interior pages count as two project grades. Be sure to let me know which 3 interior pages you want me to grade for quality and craftsmanship.
