Class Description: A form may be  created by the forming of two or more shapes or  as a three-dimensional shape (cube, pyramid,  sphere, and  cylinder,) It may be  enhanced by tone,  texture, and  color.  A form is the external appearance of a clearly defined area. Choose only one everyday object. This should be a object that is utilized each day (something the artist can not be without). Using pastels create a work of art showing the shape of the one object, the form, and the space around the object. Over sized drawing surfaces will be help to enhance in over all look of the object.
