What can you do with the skills you have? Let’s see you DO IT!

“The question for each man is not what he would do if he had the means, time, influence and educational advantages, but what he will do with the things he has.” — Frank Hamilton

Art Foundations: DRAW the NEGATIVE SPACE you see. Harder than you think.

DRAW THE NEGATIVE SPACE – NOT the positive space… Do you think you can handle it? http://fc08deviantart.net


  1. 1.4 create, define, and solve visual challenges using 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: Transparent Objects and Drawing what we see.

Janet Fish is a GREAT PLACE TO START. Check out the transparency and how the light bends and twists… OBSERVATION! http://www.askart.com


  1. 2.6 Work on creating multiple solutions to solve visual challenges.
  2. 3.1 reflect on how art differs and describe how it relates to history and cultures (how do the objects you are choosing relate to your life and culture? How can reflection and transparency work for you?)

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.


AP Studio Art: Research and Investigate the artists you are interested in. Go to the Library, Get an Art History Book. Begin with the letter A.

This is where to start. Not in what you already know. Look through the images from the past to see where the images of NOW are from. http://www.themasterpiececards.com


  1. 5.1 identify the rationale behind making art.
  2. 4.4 evaluate and interpret art for relationships in 4.4.1 form 4.4.2 context

What research and new discoveries in art history have you accomplished today? What is the greatest surprise you have found today?  What are your INITIAL THOUGHTS about the idea of a concentration?
