#BEHAVE! I know you will. #WorkHard, #Create

“If I persist, if I continue to try, if I continue to charge forward, I will succeed.” — Og Mandino

“And even if you don’t succeed… there is NOTHING wrong with failure (just get back and try again – and again – and again…).” – Frank Korb


Check out this photo – can you click on it and look at the GREAT BAS RELIEF SCULPTURE?


  • 1.2P: Shape an artistic investigation of an aspect of present-day life using a contemporary practice of art or design.
  • At what point in this process, and think hard about this, did you finally become comfortable with the process of sculpting to communicate your message about BULLYING?

What is the biggest success you had in the creation of this sculpture? How well do you feel it communicates your message?

Painting and AP Studio Art – PAINT and CONCENTRATE!

Bob Ross made art making look SO EASY… we know the truth – it is a lot of hard work! Get to it!


  • Painting: What do you see about your artwork that STANDS OUT to you as needing a bit of work? Is there anything that you are immediately “bothered” by? Is there anything that stands out as “GREAT?” (2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.)
  • AP Studio Art: What 3 STRENGTHS are you carrying forward into your newest series of concentration pieces? How has your skill improved as you have gotten half-way through the school year. ( 2.2Ad: Demonstrate understanding of the importance of balancing freedom and responsibility in the use of images, materials, tools, and equipment in the creation and circulation of creative work.)

Painting: Biggest, Best parts of the oil painting process for you? Have you got something you’d lean on as a great NEW learned skill or bit of knowledge?

AP Studio Art: What are you going to be working on OVER BREAK to continue to be productive artists?

TUESDAY (yes… tomorrow over break) at MIDNIGHT CHAPTER 7 is due in Art and Fear Blog. Who’s NOT READING? I know that reading isn’t on the top of your list of things to do in this class. If you read and get the work done OVER BREAK – you will hopefully LEARN SOMETHING and demonstrate that in your posts. PARTIAL CREDIT – but some is better than none.

Thanks for the nod towards my thoughts on communicating with Parents, Students and the WORLD on Teach.Com. I appreciate the recognition.
