FOLLOW and SHARE – Can you set GOALS for your own DAY to DAY? These are the roadmaps for the students in my classes.


Art Foundations: Perspective – what is it and how do you understand the process of one and two point perspective? Draw out your understanding of the process and your work. Filippo Brunelleschi and the Re-Invention of linear perspective.

Perspective was invented in the Renaissance of Art (Late 1400’s – 1700).


  1. 1.4.1 analysis (breaking up the artwork / subject matter to basic elements).
  2. 6.2 compare characteristics of the visual arts and other disciplines from history or movements (Renaissance).

What were your MAJOR mistakes / missteps in the use of one point perspective? What is it that you remember from your past experiences with perspective?


Drawing: ORAL CRITIQUE – Day 2.

How have you demonstrated YOUR self-reflection? Does this look like a good use of time? YES!
How have you demonstrated YOUR self-reflection? Does this look like a good use of time? YES!

GOALS: Be prepared for this long one… I have GREAT expectations from each and every one of you!

  1. 5.2 SPEAK about the work you see in front of you, gather up the courage to talk about the work in front of you, and stand behind your criticism of art

What is it you take away from the critique of others work? Write down ONE REALLY SOLID bitof information that stands out in your head! Share this with your classmate. THIS IS IMPORTANT!


AP Studio Art: Yesterday – I asked you to come up with your own GOAL. What is a GOAL that you have for the day for yourself. This is not a TASK or AGENDA item… Sit back and think about the Goals we have written for the past year. What is a GOAL that you can modify and make pertinent to your work – your progress – your desires to learn more or improve on? Write this out and make it work.

Andy Goldsworthy – Another work by him… Let’s take a look at his website!


  1. 3.2 apply subjects, symbols, and ideas in art and use skill to solve visual challenges
  2. What is YOUR goal? Rewrite a National Visual Arts Standard to make it particular to your work. DO IT!

So… report to Mr. Korb what your PERSONAL GOAL was for the day, what category (1 – 6 in the NVAS did it come from) and how did you modify it to make it your own?
