#Finally #Friday on the #Studio. #PlansForTheWeekend?

10 Things Creative People Do By: Randy Taran

1. Listen In: Listen to your intuition and capture your new ideas. Whether from your morning shower, nighttime dreams, when running, in the car, or in nature, keep an idea notebook and jot it down.

and ALL 10

AP Studio Art: Concentration!



  •  2.3Ad: Demonstrate in works of art or design how visual and material culture defines, shapes, enhances, inhibits, and/or empowers people’s lives.
  • What is happening in your classmates work that you are truly glad to see happening? Write that out and then take a moment to give them encouragement and support.

What’s on your plate for the weekend? What have you got to work on? Website? Artwork? Job? 

Advanced Drawing: Composition and Meaning of a PAPER BAG.



  • 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.
  • How are you doing in the process? Where are you pleased? Where are you still struggling? BE SPECIFIC HERE! P.S. … SWITCH SPOTS – Nobody sits next to somebody you did yesterday!

What did MOVING to a different spot do for you today? More focused? Different focused? See if the weekend can get you back on track.

Drawing: Color, Shape, Meaning, and MUSIC!
