WELCOME TO THE DRAWING STUDIO - ALL THE ARTISTS HARD AT WORK.
WELCOME TO THE DRAWING STUDIO – ALL THE ARTISTS HARD AT WORK.

It takes a long time for a man to look like his portrait.

 – James McNeill Whistler

To all of our Drawing and Art Foundations Students… I think Whistler’s message will be comforting to you.

Art Foundations: Continuous Line MARKER Drawings… (maybe one more pencil drawing), Pattern conversation and introduction to watercolor.

Marker and Pencil Continuous Line Contour Portraits - Frank Korb.
Marker and Pencil Continuous Line Contour Portraits – Frank Korb.

Goals:

  1. Work on (1.1.1, 3) applying media and techniques with skill and awareness (of HOW you are using line).
  2. (2.2) Evaluate the effectiveness of how line is working to define your portrait.

What is the most challenging aspect of the portrait / line? What emotions have you chosen to represent yourself? Why? What variety of lines do you hope to use in the process of creating your self-portraits.

~~~

Drawing: Value and Portrait. Charcoal and tools. Reflect and Evaluate the work of your and your classmates.

Jamie Treadwell’s Student’s Drawing – How does this compare to what you might be doing today?

Goals: 

  1. (1.4.1) Create and solve visual problems using analysis of the shape and form of the face.
  2. (1.2.3) Create art that demonstrates an understanding of how your ideas relate to process (grid and value generalization)

Set a sheet of paper next to your drawing and go around to comment on other artists works. What do you enjoy? What is challenging? Where are they challenged? How can you help by adding suggestions?

AP Studio Art: Reflect on your statements and make critical decisions about the movement of your next work forward in your concentration.

GOALS:

  1. (4.2) Describe the purposes and meaning of art within your culture and time.
  2. (4.4.1,2) Evaluate and interpret art for relationships in form and context.

What bit of advice did you get from your classmates that you will be able to put to use? What bit of advice did you give that might be used elsewhere? What are your goals for the next work(s) that will show your development?
