Studio Art 360 – FINISH THE DRAWINGS – Mount them to Mats – Exhibit your work!

Now that you have a good understanding of drawing from OBSERVATION… How can you carry that FURTHER into the idea of OTHER objects and Still Life Paintings? Janet Fish has spent a career on that VERY IDEA! http://artandperception.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/fwf1.jpg


  • G: 4.1P: Analyze, select, and curate artifacts and/or artworks for presentation and preservation.
  • How do you feel about MATTING and PRESENTING your work? What sort of FINISH will putting a WHITE MATT around it do for your work? Give two ideas and explanations.

Why does the presentation of your final works make you PROUD or NOT PROUD? Please give a solid three sentence explanation to your answer.

What makes this a more successful DRAWING than yesterdays? How do you see your abilities as you see a strong drawing like this one? What can you do?


  • 2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.
  • What EXPERIMENTS are you using as you make marks in the hallways? Are you finding NEW SKILLS you didn’t think you had? Explain the STRENGTH (in art terms) of your initial ROUGH drawing and Thumbnails.

What about today’s drawing makes for a successful drawing? Three reasons please.
