Drawing With Words!-Introduction to Micrography

Robin Sherman Herman
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(36)
Students will be introduced to Micrography. It’s a unique technique of using tiny letters, words, and phrases to create an image. This is an old art form that’s been created in several cultures and languages. We’ll create ours in English.

Class experience

-Students will be learn about the derivation of the word “micrography” and the root words that formed it. Students will learn that this is an old art form that was created in many cultures.
-Students will view examples of completed Micrography created by various artists
-Students will create a quick practice piece of micrography and then a more individualized piece of micrography.
Supply list 
-White paper- can be copy paper or drawing paper either 8 1/2“ x 11” or 9” x 12

-A #2 pencil

-An eraser

-One very fine/thin black writing tool-either an ultra fine ball point pen, a gel pen, or ultra fine marker. You probably have a fine tip ball point stick pen in one of your pen/pencil containers or desk drawers at home (these are those sample giveaway pens you once got at a meeting, a hotel, or a bank with a company logo on it). The thinner the better. 

If not you can order one on Amazon, Blick Art, Michaels, or an office supply vendor. I’ve listed a variety of brands of pens and thin markers below.
-Here some brands that make fine point pens: Pilot Ultra Fine Point Rolling Ball, Uniball Ultra Micro Point, many BIC round stick pens have thin points, Paper Mate Write Bros Ballpoint are also made with thin points, many generic store brands make thin stick ball point and gel pens.

-Here are some ultra fine point art markers. You can also order many of these from Amazon, Blick Art, Michaels, or an office supply vendor. 

These tend to be more pricey than ball point pens so choose these only if you know that you and/or or your child will find multiple uses for these markers (you may own one of these if you do scrapbooking or crafting) : Prismacolor Premier Illustration Marker - 005  Extra Fine Line, Staedtler Triplus Fineliner, Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pen Fine or Extra Fine, Sakura Pigma Micron Pen .005 .0.20 tip, Copic Multiliner  (any of these sizes will work 0.1, .03, .05, .5)-these are the Rolls Royce of markers used by artists, illustrators, and graphic designers

-a ruler
I will be using screen sharing to show the students some examples of completed pieces of micrography created by a variety of artists.
