  • NVAS: 1.1P: Use multiple approaches to begin creative endeavors.
  • Question to begin with: VERY Windy yesterday – how do you feel about the painting from yesterday? We thought about it at the end of the class – I get that – but you are a day removed. Give some examples and some real consideration – maybe about the compositions, maybe about the technique, maybe about something entirely else… River painting today – how do you feel the WATER will be a challenge? How might it be solved? Think about the technique… Ok – Let’s get our stuff and GO PAINT!

End of the Day Reflection (use the back of this page for more reflection space): TODAY we had two paintings… (I hope as of the writing of this piece. How did the first painting from today help you develop the second painting? (The questions will work today – weather pending.) Elaborate with examples from your paintings. We considered the different types of compositions (8?) and then went out and painted – right? How did looking at the various types of compositions help you develop (or simply be more aware) of the compositions you set up today?
