Plein Air Painting: Last day out there! What are you doing? How do you WRAP IT UP?
- NVAS: 7.1P: 6.1P: Analyze and describe the impact that an exhibition or collection has on personal awareness of social, cultural, or political beliefs and understandings.
- Question to begin with: Yesterday you thought about how your 4 weeks of painting have changed your views, maybe even enhanced your view of Waterford. As you continue through the art making experiences, I hope that the “artist’s eye” has really begun to open up in you. No question today… no deep reflection right now… just take an opportunity to consider that idea of “artist’s eye.” I think about it in how we, as artists, see the world through a different set of lenses than others. Please continue working through your painting today and look through those “artist’s eyes.” I lied… How are you seeing things differently today than you were 4 weeks ago.
Thank you for ALL your hard work over these past 4 weeks. Continue to be focused and WORK on your WORK. There is nothing better than working on work to get better at making work. You have all had great successes as well as aspects of the work that has been, well, not so successful – failure may be the better word.
