“The best way out is always through.” Robert Frost



Art Foundations 2D – Pattern, Contour Line, Marker Work to finish portraits – REVIEW PATTERN AND LINE

REMEMBER ME?! Today we choose our BEST! GO SLOW! Keep your big open spaces – BIG AND OPEN. No Shading, Closed Shapes!
What sort of PATTERN are you? Are you a bunch of ALTERNATING elephants? Maybe you are abstract? Maybe a wavy pattern is more your style… Thanks Lotta Bruhn for the Elephants – Check out the site for INSPIRATION!


  1. 1.4 create, define, and solve visual challenges using 1.4.2 synthesis (how are we going to use LINE to create a successful portrait?)
  2. 4.4 evaluate and interpret art for relationships in 4.4.1 form

What was the most fun part of dealing with contours? If you were to describe yourself in terms of lines, what lines would you use? Where are you successful in the contour drawings? Share the images with your classmates and discuss the success and failures.


Drawing – We are going to be looking at collaborative use of technology to self-evaluate and help others reflect on their own work.

Google Drive – Here we GO!

CNet How to use Google Drive


  1. 1.4 solve charcoal grid drawing challenges  using 1.4.1 analysis and 1.4.2 synthesis
  2. 1.4.3 evaluation (formative and summative reflections about your artwork) of your artwork through digital media. (Technology Operations and Concepts and Communication and Collaboration)

Pair / Share – self – evaluation of the day – back of the goal sheet.


AP Studio Art: Technology and your artwork. Editing and  uploading to the AP Studio Site.

Remember this 6/6 from last week?


  1. 1.3 communicate ideas clearly
  2. 2.2 evaluate the effectiveness of artworks

What were the biggest impressions you had from the classmate’s works? What were the most difficult things you felt as you presented your work? Conversation between classmates about the 2 questions for your exam. How does this work relate to your concentration?
