STUDENT SURVEY is HERE – If you are NOT a student – thanks for ignoring it… unless you have some incredibly nice things to say or suggestions to make.
What’s the surgeon general have to say about social media and kiddos? It falls in line with my frustrations about the cell phones in class. Maybe it’s worth a read.
If people only knew how hard I work to gain my mastery. It wouldn’t seem so wonderful at all. ― Michelangelo
Advanced Painting: Narrative Painting with RULES!
What do you need to do this week to make HUGE PROGRESS in the final work of your Advanced Painting Experience? The assignment is FIGURATIVE PAINTING remember and you are making stories in the work. You have SYMBOLS and IMAGERY that stands for and represents a lot of stuff.
HERE IS THE NARRATIVE ASSIGNMENT
Intro to Painting: Painting in Acrylics
Sharon Hudson – Portraits
PORTRAIT and STILL LIFE : These terms will be here because they are important to know as genres and they are still not being fully understood. You have heard about them and you have listened to the definitions and you are still falling short (in some cases) on the demonstration of understanding. This is the time to fall short. Learning is the process.
Art Foundations: METALS and COLLAGE
Collage is a really important part of the art tradition and we do not have the time to fully do it justice. Please continue to work on the collages as you are waiting for metals supplies to free up and you can work on the jewelry project. This is your opportunity to make an artwork (again) about something important to you!
NATURE is the motif and you are all working towards an understanding of techniques. Black and white images are the final goal for the metals work and the nature will show through. Know about the techniques and LISTEN to the process so that we can have success in it all.
Collage Assignment is HERE as well. This is a GOOD in between waiting project as well… or a big project in and of itself… let’s see how things play out.
Advanced Digital art and Photography: Book Making and InDesign
We will take a look at the larger idea in the assignment and then leave it up to you to decide how you want to go about making a series of works and inserting them into a BOOK! The process is complicated and you are in need of focus and attention to the time. Studio habits are essential and I know that you have got the skills. Day 1 is an in depth dive into InDesign, the rest is on you.
MEASUREMENTS ARE IMPORTANT!
Photography and the Assignment
Introduction to Digital Art and Photography: Animation on your own.
Animation – What are your plans for this? We have learned a little about the process in Adobe Animate and NOW is the time to really see what we can do. Look at the ideas that we have seen in the television intros from last week and see how you might consider your ideas and interests in this work. What kind of animation do you want to attempt?
