Eastlake High School Empire State of Mind & Heal the World Songs Discussion

Assignment 1:

I would like you to take a piece of printer paper and sketch a funny scene from either your imagination or from something you experienced. It can even be something you experienced during the recent weeks. Create a single panel (1 page) cartoon based on an animal. It can be your pet, a common animal we see everyday like a squirrel or an exotic zoo animal. Just like Gary Larson likes to create single panel cartoons depicting animals in human scenarios, try to figure out a concept to use to create a sketch from. You should use an entire piece of 8.5 x 11 “ blank paper like the kind used in a printer. Plan to lightly sketch you final draft first and then go over those light lines with darker lines. You may add words or a sentence or word bubbles to add to the sketch, but it is not necessary.

Assignment 2:

Sketch a song that relies heavily on the instrumental aspect therein.

Understand that you will need to find THREE songs that you enjoy. The songs must not incite violence or controversial themes, nor should it have any profanity but be appropriate for high school. The first song must have minimal vocals but more instrumental sounds within the composition. An example of an instrument-based song could be jazz or string music. The second song must depict objects and or a scene in the lyrical content. Finally the third song can be of your own choosing based on your song preference. I will discuss the plan for the three drawings but will only assign you to complete ONE drawing at a time so check back regularly for the other assignments that will be due over the course of the next TWO weeks. Please use the handouts I provided. Download each handout and print it, or use you computer or tablet to draw digitally on top of the handout. Write your name, date and period number and answer the questions. Upload these handouts when you “Turn In” your assignment.
