As a group of three – you will 1) hold lighting, 2) Be the Photographer, and 3) be the model for the photograph. We will talk about the cameras for a brief bit in the beginning, then we will be heading down to the painting studio and then out into the building with cameras and lights for 30 minutes (that is 10 minutes per person… so be thinking about the process and the poses that you might want.) Take 5 minutes NOW to look over PORTRAITS in Google to begin to THINK of ideas… you will be using these ideas as IDEAS. Have your sketchbook ready to make notes and quick sketches of the ideas. We will be using an 10” x 8” format in Photoshop – 300 DPI – CMYK.

#28: An idea is only as good as its execution. It is important that you master your medium. Poorly made work will either ruin a good idea or make the lamentable execution itself the subject. Overly finessed technique can mask a lack of content or can smother an image. At the same time, roughness and imprecision has its place in rendering. One can only gauge the need to throw technique away if one has first achieved the mastery of it. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

Critique About Art: http://escapingartist.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/Art-School-Crit.jpg
  • G: What were 3 things that you took away from today’s critique? Next time we are looking at PHOTOGRAPHS. If you have your own DSLR or Digital Camera (not a phone camera – although the images there are pretty good) you are welcome to bring it in. Let it be known… I do not have all the answers about cameras so… you will have to be doing a bit of problem solving on your own.

#ArtStudio. #PleinAir, #MaxErnst and #Collage with some #SocialCommentary for good measure, and a little #CorporateID.

“The importance of an artist is to be determined by the number of new signs he introduces into the language of art.” —Henri Matisse, quoted in Matisse by Louis Aragon Art is a language of signs and symbols. To describe new conditions, new signs must be created or old symbols must be redeployed in ways that give them new meanings. Given that the world is constantly changing and that each new generation describes the world it sees in its own way, the symbol language of art must always be evolving. Language is influence. 101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White

  • A: Landscapes and simplification of the space – far off space. Looking at the work of Paul Cezanne and the works of the Post-Impressionists – What simplification do we see in the work they have created? Be aware of the breaking up of the space and shapes into a simple fashion, but also consider the ideas of adding details and specific shapes.

  • G: How do you enjoy / struggle with the new ideas that you took in today?
