April 29, 2013 – Monday – Week 14: 5 more to go… SO much to do!

“Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.” — Voltaire


What are the colors used? Piet Mondrian – De Stijl Artist!

Art Foundations: Continue on the color wheel AND learn about using a GRID to plan out an artwork.


  1. 1.4 Define color schemes and value scales using analysis (what are the colors that we, as painters / drawers use to make all the other colors?)
  2. 1.2 Create art that demonstrates an understanding of how your ideas relate to materials and techniques.

Share image with your classmate and explain the process of measuring and transferring images.


Drawing: Transfer the photograph to the paper with pencil and consider the colors you might use (Color Scheme) to communicate a message / emotion.

Portrait of Henri Matisse by Andre Derain.


  1. 3.1 reflect on how art differs and describe how it relates to history and cultures
  2. 3.2 apply subjects, symbols, and ideas in art and use skill to solve visual challenges

What was the most challenging aspect of your drawing to get done today? How are you using OBSERVATION and COMPARISON – sighting in – to get your drawings set up correctly?


AP Studio Art: We are beginning a NEW ARTWORK based on literature. We are ALSO finishing the wrapping up of the portfolio.

How are you filling this?


  1. Work on Quality Mounting of artworks.
  2. 3.2 apply subjects, symbols, and ideas in art and use skill to solve visual challenges

As last week – what do you need to complete so that you have a complete portfolio by Friday?
