  • 1.2P: Shape an artistic investigation of an aspect of present-day life using a contemporary practice of art or design.
  • What are the MAJOR textures you are hoping to work into your BAS – RELIEF sculpture? How will they help create the idea of SPACE in a somewhat flat (low-relief) picture plane?

What was successful in the design and creation of your collage today? Where are you struggling?

  • 5.1Ac: Evaluate, select, and apply methods or processes appropriate to display artwork in a specific place.
  • What differences do you know about ACRYLIC Paints and OIL Paints? Today we are DEMONSTRATING the differences. We NEED to be AWARE of STORING THEM in the YELLOW RACK – Safer in there than on the TOPS OF THE LOCKERS.

  • Research and Information Fluency – Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information.
  • Three days of NON ART MAKING time in class… what have you gotten done on your OWN? This is challenging – time is precious and you need to recognize that.

What do you feel about seeing your work ONLINE? How do you feel this can be HELPFUL to an artist?
