Composition? Character? This is you taking the time to think about WHY you are exceeding or why you are struggling. Time for self reflection. Let’s do this now.

Experience can act as an object. Art has traditionally been object oriented. But with the emergence of performance, installation, sound- and time-based media, ephemeral experiences and relationships can now be thought of as surrogate objects embodying the art impulse. This is in keeping with the fleeting and disembodied nature of much of what passes for objecthood in the simulated realm of the digital. Objects must be thought of as pulses of energy and patterns, not just solid volumes. 101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White

If you are FAR from finished you are in need of coming on and getting yourself to work outside of class. Some of you are doing a good job cutting, but have ZERO foiled and ZERO soldered. Are you in that category? Look at what you currently have begun and write out a FOUR DAY PLAN.

  • What are the biggest fears that you have about the ideas of drawing a full human figure? Why do you think this is so tough? Beginning with a general idea of the figure and a reference with the mannequin – you will draw out the proportions and stance of the models for a few minutes and then transition to the human form. Using various references, you will look very carefully and recreate the figures.

Get out your handbooks!

Static images deliver the information they contain instantly. But they also have the capacity to reveal the whole process of their making, as well as the depth of their narrative, over an extended period of investigation, meditation, and analysis. Paintings are especially unique in this quality. Good art never stops revealing itself. And though the eye can take in an image in its totality in an instant, great images reveal their secrets slowly. The more complex an image, the slower the revelation. 101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White
