What skills do you have that you can use NOW to do your best?

Ok… I may not mountain climb, surf, hang glide, or scuba dive… but I DO love to use my skills on the stage! Who’d have thought I was funny?

“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

Positive and Negative space. Let’s do this with WATERCOLORS first… then Sharpie to finish the branches. LET THE PAINT DRY FIRST. 1.bp.blogspot.com


  1. 1.4 create, define, and solve visual challenges using 1.4.1 analysis (breaking up the artwork / subject matter to basic elements)

What about the use of space did you still have questions about. You and your classmate need to get together and review the first two sections of the chapter and come up with a CHALLENGING QUESTION from the text. I will collect the questions for future use…


Advanced Drawing: Still life drawings – FOCUS ON THE TRANSPARENCY, LIGHT BENDING, and REFLECTION

http://www.thirstyreader.com – What is the transparent aspect to this painting? How did Janet Fish REALLY show the transparency and bending of the light?


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

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 THEN… let’s get together and talk about the discoveries you have made.


AP Studio Art: Time to consider the idea of your Concentration.

  1. Link to examples HERE
  2. Link to Acorn Book HERE
  3. ANSWER THIS QUESTION: Clearly and simply state the central idea of your concentration .
Concentration time… Ok… maybe not this kind of concentration. We ARE going to get into the ideas of concentration however. http://www.pathways-to-peak-experience.com


  1. 1.4 create and define, visual challenges (your concentrations)  using 1.4.1 analysis (breaking up the artwork / subject matter to basic elements).

What have you narrowed some ideas down to? How have you discovered NEW ideas regarding what you MIGHT want to be dealing with in your concentration? What is the artistic stuff that you might be exploring (elements and principles? Mark making techniques? Media you might be exploring?) Share your thoughts about the 2 questions that we will be visiting and revisiting throughout the semester.
