And here I am HANG GLIDING… I love to use my abilities to really have fun in life.

Art Foundations: Space – Positive and Negative Space in your artwork and in life.

What did the artist focus their attention on? The NEGATIVE SPACE!


  1. 1.4.1 analysis (breaking up the artwork / subject matter to basic elements)

What did you find as the most difficult aspect of the creation of the drawing? What was the hardest? What was the easiest? Are you able to see the negative space in the 1 – drawing, 2 – actual object?


Advanced Drawing: Crit and PENCIL DRAWINGS.

Check out and SEE the GLASSES that Janet Fish Draws and Paints. How do you deal with TRANSPARENCY?


  1. 2.6 Work on creating multiple solutions to solve visual challenges.

What are you drawn to? What is successful in your composition? What is it about the transparent glass that makes this a challenging or easy subject matter to work with? Share your preliminary work with your neighbor – write the thoughts down and share the challenges with your neighbors.


AP Studio Art: RESEARCH and begin the ideas for your CONCENTRATION

Vincent Van Gogh spent time LOOKING at and THINKING about the works that he focused his life on… what are you going to do to do the same?


  1. Research and Information Fluency – Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information.
  2. Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making – Students use critical thinking skills to plan and conduct research, manage projects, solve problems, and make informed decisions using appropriate digital tools and resources.

Look over and SHARE your research about the artist that you have begun looking at and also share a bit about what your initial thoughts are regarding the idea of having a concentration.
