#Week3 – #Painting and #Resolution of Work, #Modernism. #Plein Air too?

Week 3: Art is the Product of Process: Art is the product of process: Whether conceptual, experimental, emotional, or formal, the process you develop yields the image you produce. The materials you choose, the methods of production, and the sources of the images should all reflect the interests that command your attention. The process does not stop with each work completed. It is ongoing. The cumulative result of that process is a body of work. 101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White


Art Foundations: Bas Relief and Balance and COLOR

3.1P: Apply relevant criteria from traditional and contemporary cultural contexts to examine, reflect on, and plan revisions for works of art and design in progress.

We are going to retrieve our Sol LeWitt COLOR images and work 4 of the patterns up into final preparatory images for out final 9” x 9” wooden panel. Which of your COLOR ideas are you happiest with and WHY? In the sketchbooks you will RECREATE your images – VERY CAREFULLY AND THOUGHTFULLY with Colored Pencils and Watercolor Paints – focusing SPECIFICALLY on a color scheme that you will be able to identify to me. Then we will move it up to the wooden panels.

  • Collage Examples – Let’s look at these for some BASIC ideas and inspiration.

Today we are going OUTSIDE and painting LANDSCAPES (plein Air! One day to be outside and pait for the experience and observation. This needs to be ABSOLUTELY FOCUSED and NO WASTE OF TIME! Remember that you have homework for next time – look at the previous post OR GOOGLE CLASSROOM to see where we are and what you need to do if you have forgotten!

 

What was the most challenging part of the plein air process? What would you do differently next time?

What are 5 images you gathered today that say something about you? How do they? What are your initial thoughts about the idea of the collage and social commentary?


Introduction to Digital Art: Modernism and Font Types

2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.Working on paper is different than working on the computer. Using a collection of FONTS that you

have chosen you will find a wide variety of fonts that you enjoy and explore many different way of joining letters into positive and negative shapes (as well as adding a geometric or organic shape or two) in creating a Logo Design  for yourself. This will take some time – be ready to SKETCH and EXPLORE ideas. N: Fonts, positive and negative shapes, 5 different Logo Designs.

Introduction to Painting: Resolve Watercolor Experiments and then to COLLAGE!

  • 5.1Ac: Evaluate, select, and apply methods or processes appropriate to display artwork in a specific place.
  • 2.3Ac: Redesign an object, system, place, or design in response to contemporary issues.

30 minutes to resolve the abstract watercolors, then onto the rubrics of the watercolor paintings.

HOMEWORK IN TWO CLASS PERIODS: Artists research on ONE of the following artists for imagery, technique, approach: Winslow Homer, Charles Demuth, Thomas Eakins, Edward Hopper, Dong Kingman, Reginald Marsh, Charles Sheeler, J.M.W. Turner, Thomas Moran, Georgia O’Keefe, James Whistler, or Andrew Wyeth A: Develop / collect images, consider the ideas about yourself and surroundings. This is going to be a SELF-PORTRAIT of sorts – no that it is going to look like you but rather… the objects and images, surroundings, ideas will be about you.

Learn To Draw “Drawing is more than a tool for rendering and capturing likenesses. It is a language, with its own syntax, grammar, and urgency. Learning to draw is about learning to see. In this way, it is a metaphor for all art activity. Whatever its form, drawing transforms perception and thought into image and teaches us how to think with our eyes.” 101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White


Art Foundations: Zentangles and Balance

2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan.
What is a balance? What is a pattern? What patterns and balance are you drawn to? What were your favorite designs from last week’s work with Sol LeWitt? We are EVENTUALLY going to use one of the color studies in a painting for the next artwork.

Of all the tools that you experimented with, what ONE did you really like using, was something that you feel will be of the most use to you perhaps? Start to create a Modernist Artwork from the list of artists provided that uses a wide variety of shape tools and at least 5 layers (to practice the idea of Layers) in the NON-OBJECTIVE Drawing. We are also going to be planning on working with the ideas of cutting and joining in the program. Look at Google Classroom for the assignment.

#TeacherTraining and #BackToSchool in the #Arts

img_20180827_120242

What a GREAT day (and past few days). New teacher training and convocation (day one of welcome back staff). I’ve learned a lot of new names (and forgot a bunch of them already – sorry folks) and the technical ends of the building (copy machines, faster ways through the building, who to talk to for help). I am still sad to not be with my friends in the old space, but I am really excited to see and meet new friends.

To my students from Waterford – THANK YOU for all you have taught me and given to me. I will always have great memories and knowledge that I impacted your lives and know that you impacted mine. To my NEW students (you aren’t subscribed at the time of this posting) thank you for all that you are going to give to me. I look forward to sharing my experiences and knowledge with you. I can’t wait to to see what we are able to come up with in the arts rooms together!

Ok? Next post – GOALS and PLANS for the week. See you all soon!
