When Mr. Korb is Away, the Artists Work REALLY hard!

“Never tell a young person that anything cannot be done. God may have been waiting centuries for someone ignorant enough of the impossible to do that very thing.” — John Andrew Holmes

Art Foundations: Grids and Math

Drawn from a GRID and a PHOTO (http://th00.deviantart.net/fs29/PRE/f/2008/128/d/0/Grid_Drawing___Headphones_by_vampyremuffin.jpg)


  1. 1.2 Create art that demonstrates an understanding of how your ideas relate to the techniques (colored pencil layering) and process (grid and drawing) you are using.
  2. 6.1 compare aspects of the visual arts with aspects of other disciplines through Mathematical Ratios and Transferring images

What are the challenges you have been having with this process? What colors have you begun using and how easy / hard has this been for you?. Did you need or offer help from / to a classmate? Collaboration is ESSENTIAL to solving problems.

Facial Features… but YOU draw the entire face. Watch and Look… Impress me so we aren’t starting back at individual features. (http://fc03.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2011/340/7/a/facial_features_by_arandadill-d4ib357.jpg)


  1. 1.4 Initiate, define, and solve challenging visual arts problems using skills of (1.4.1) analysis (.2) synthesis (.3) evaluation.
  2. (5.1) Identify the intentions and purposes behind making art.

What interests you? What sorts of locations are you comfortable in? What sorts of locations make you uncomfortable? What did you do today that brought the work to a place where you can understand what is going to happen?

  1. 2.6 create multiple solutions to visual challenges that show understanding in relationships between composition and meaning of artwork
  2. 6.1 compare aspects of the visual arts with aspects of other disciplines by being inspired by  music and text.

On your goal sheets…Think about your Art and Fear image and how it is coming. Also please consider the website you have been working on and think about how you are doing. If you need to make changes to your site – make sure you are making the changes. Are you ANY CHAPTERS behind in the Art and Fear Book? Make sure you are up to speed there. Take the last 5 minutes to talk with your neighbors about the meaning of your Art and Fear works – if you are struggling – ASK QUESTIONS and LISTEN to the conversations.
