Have a GREAT SUMMER and MAKE ART (and be safe. AND respect others).

#YouAreAnArtist – Has it really been 2 weeks since the last post? #PBS @theArtAssignment#SarahUristGreen

So much time goes by and it seems like the days don’t matter. It is Whateverday and tomorrow is Anotherday, after that is… well… I’mNotSureaday…

To start the week we are making CareSlips, thanks to #ArtWorksForMilwaukee. We are creating some Post Cards and sending them off to people who need a Pick – Me – Up… and believe me howdy… I know about people who need that about now.

https://www.artworksformilwaukee.org/careslips

  • Postcard artwork to start with
  • Postcard size paper
  • Pen or sharpie
  • Something to add color to the finished work.

Start with THIS RECORDING. (I am NOT a trained or even untrained meditative anything. I have listened to CALM on my phone for a while and took some notes from another site. BUT… this gives one a few minutes to SIT and SHUSH and BE THERE for ONESELF.) Goals are to sit back and create a work of art that will help you focus for 30 minutes on the act of making art and then to send it off to someone who might need a pick me up. Photograph and document the finished artwork and insert it into the slideshow. If you get Any feedback from the person you gave it to, please share that with the slideshow. NO JUDGING HERE AT ALL.

  1. Listen to the recording and RELAX
  2. Think about the movement of your mind and body from the previous 5 minutes and allow the ball point pen or sharpie marker to travel all over the paper wherever it goes is fine. Take 3 minutes to do this – keep the pen moving. 
  3. Using colors – and think about a scheme or small gathering of colors – let’s take 7 minutes to add color to the work – however you want. No right no wrong, just think balance and fill the space.
  4. On a separate piece of paper – write down all that you experienced in the work. What movements, what directions, what does it remind you of? What does it remind you NOT of? This is all good. 
  5. On the back of the card, as it has dried, write out a short little message about the imagery on the front. Perhaps ask a question – make a statement.
  6. Lastly – Photograph this card – front and back, insert it into the slide show for this week. Then mail it off to someone you think needs a little pick me up! Make sure to sign it and address it properly. Stick a stamp on it and send it off.

What’s been keeping you active? I’ve been watching a bit of the PBS Art Assignment and have stolen – procured – a few assignments for myself and my kids at school. Here are a couple of their episodes for you to watch and I ENCOURAGE you to SUBSCRIBE to their site… and buy Sarah’s new book “You Are An Artist” as well.

I also believe that CREATIVITY is overrated – as is TALENT. Just go and MAKE stuff!
Time to make a BOOK!

Been a LONG while…

What’s been happening? It has been a long while since the last post. How have you been? Staying safe? Staying sane? Making art?

We’ve been working on ENGAGEMENT in the studio. Our classes have been a little low in numbers, and the technology has gotten the best of me. TIP – if you are using a camera as a demonstration tool, log into ZOOM first with the computer or you may miss the kids in the waiting room (so sorry folks… I hope you watched my video of 5B Art Foundations class from Tuesday. [Ok… as of this post 1 person has and that might have been me]).

In the end, it is the engagement of oneself in their education that is important. Being in the studio is important and being engaged in one’s learning is to. If you’ve gotten this far I am probably preaching to the choir – and those at this point in world history are pretty small – except maybe the ZOOM choirs, they are doing fine.

I hope you are safe and well. Join us for class – check in with your Google Classroom and click the link. Friday we are meeting with Milwaukee Artist Nicole Shaver in our weekly Friday Art Lunch Bunch. Hope you can join us.

P.S. If you want to check out some masterful blending techniques… here’s how to blend colors with your’s truly.

Intro to Painting: Edward Hopper and Loneliness

  1. Edward Hopper and his works. The loneliness that his works have illustrated and depicted. Sometimes they are people in rooms together but they are generally apart.
  2. Sketches and IDEAS for the time.

Let’s go over the assignment sheet HERE.

Edward Hopper Resources:

Advanced Painting: Fauvism or YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN!

  1. Sketches for NEXT painting – FAUVISM Part II – OR – Your own painting based on the style or technique YOU ARE INTERESTED IN
  2. NOTE – Sometimes it is easier for a young (or old) artist to be successful when they are given a specific direction to travel with their work. If following my instructions helps you succeed – use them. If you choose to follow your own path… Great!
  3. Please PLAN before you move into the painting. This week’s assignment will be the PLANNING stages – the sketches. 
    1. This doesn’t mean you can’t begin the final painting… it just means that the planning is the assignment to turn in.

Read the instruction sheet HERE.


Thanks for the following and staying on top of one’s own COVID-19 Quarantine. STAY AT HOME! While the posting seems to have died down QUITE A BIT over the past 3 weeks, know full well that the educating hasn’t. The initial intent of ArtWithKorb.com was to help share out ideas and resources to EVERYONE. It has done that as well as being a launching pad for all of the daily classes in the classroom. Well… we’re not there anymore.

As with EVERYONE we are all teaching out of our own homes and studios right now. I’ve switched all of the digital day to day to Google Classrrom – which stinks for the sharing of ideas. The time it takes to update… in the classroom it is all set, for the home studio, as you may or may not know, it takes a lot longer.

Thank you for following and supporting the ideas.
