#Day2 – How’s that #Art thing going for you?

“Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will.” – Martin Luther King, Jr. 

AP Studio Art – Art and Fear – Let’s go to it!


  • 1.2Ad: Choose from a range of materials and methods of traditional and contemporary artistic practices, following or breaking established conventions, to plan the making of multiple works of art and design based on a theme, idea, or concept
  • Using the idea of Art and Fear as your next breadth work – what ideas do you find yourself leaning towards when it comes to the imagery for your next work? Why do you see yourself headed in that direction? How are you going to make the ideas CLEAR and READABLE in your artwork?

What are the challenges from working through an ENTIRE CHAPTER? Explain what your biggest challenges might be about this work.

Advanced Drawing: Abstraction and Pastels – Color Schemes!



  • 2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.
  • What has been the hardest part of using values for you? Share this with your neighbor and write your struggles in your goals page. Look at the image of Jean Metzinger’s Sailboats… look at it as visually being BALANCED – notice how we took the color out to see it balanced?

What is the progress of the drawing thus far? What are you doing successfully? Where are you struggling? Share your thoughts with your neighbors.

Drawing: Still Life – FAST and FURIOUS!

Still Life SKETCHES and preliminary ideas… how are your ideas coming?


  • 2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.
  • Most young artists work with their FIRST idea and that’s it. What might the benefit be to begin with MORE ideas? When you sketch in your binders / homework… where do you mostly get your ideas from?  How do you define OBSERVATION?

What do you hope to come up with this year in Drawing? What do you feel you will be able to improve on regarding the skills you have currently?
