  • 9.1P: Establish relevant criteria in order to evaluate a work of art or collection of works.

  • 10.1Ad: Synthesize knowledge of social, cultural, historical, and personal life with art-making approaches to create meaningful works of art or design.
  • Not knowing what your thoughts are about plants / flowers, know that they have been and will be a large and important image in art. Working to make sure you have a REAL connection with the images you make, what are your personal connections to the art or the making of the art?

What materials have you used today? What were the focal points of the drawings for the day. What are you enjoying / hating about the ideas of drawing based on observation?

  • 3.1Ac: Engage in constructive critique with peers, then reflect on, re-engage, revise, and refine works of art and design in response to personal artistic vision.
  • What do you feel about talking aloud when it comes to other’s works? What are your thoughts about why you may be apprehensive or confident when discussing other individual’s work?

What were 3 things that you took away from today’s critique? How will you apply that information as you move forward?

REMEMBER! Create a ONE PAGE PAPER (double spaced, 11 or 12 point Times New Roman, Palatino – Serif-ed type font) that discusses the artists and their works. Use ideas about the work as to what drew you to the work, what styles did you like, what techniques do you appreciate? A small history of the artist and personal reflection. How will you use similar ideas in your work as they did in theirs? Here are the artists to research: Winslow Homer, Charles Demuth, Thomas Eakins, Edward Hopper, Dong Kingman, Reginald Marsh, Charles Sheeler, J.M.W. Turner, Thomas Moran, Georgia O’Keefe, James Whistler, or Andrew Wyeth. PAPER IS DUE ON Friday, September 19, 2014.
