  • 1.1Ac: Individually or collaboratively formulate new creative problems based on student’s existing artwork.
  • Looking over the work you have, what surprises do you see from where you started from two weeks ago? Stronger than you expected? Weaker? EXPLAIN! (I will be asking you about Georgia O’Keefe’s work on Friday – anything stand out today? Keep an eye on her work as the week progresses.)

Reflection / Evaluation: What ELEMENT of art do you find being the strongest one that you are using? Color? Line? Shape? Form? Space?

Studio Art 360: Boxes/ Sculpture / Paper Mache

Cardboard ona BIG SCALE! http://craftcouncil.org/magazine/article/cardboard-unpacked  http://craftcouncil.org/sites/craftcouncil.org/files/MM_AS11_01.jpg


  • Use multiple approaches to begin creative endeavors.
  • What more do you need to do in order to be done with the sculpting of the form and then resolve the form to add the paper mache? IF YOU ARE PAPER MACHEing… What color are you interested in painting your sculpture, Black, White, or another color? WHY?

Reflection / Evaluation: List three things you see that the paper mache and color will do to SIMPLIFY and UNIFY your sculpture.

AP Studio Art:Plants and Drawing!

Jim Dine – Plants and Trees: https://korbartwuhs.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/e5371-1980tree2528thekimono2529.jpg AND THEN: Bring up an image from the Alan Cristea Gallery: https://www.alancristea.com/collection-41-109-Plants-Andamp%3B-Trees


  • 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 PLANT and the image by Jim Dine that I have shown you, what ideas FIRST COME TO YOUR MIND when told you are going to be working on a PLANT BASED drawing? Write out your FIRST THOUGHTS.

Reflection / Evaluation: What are your first marks on the paper? What are the areas that you are focusing on in the composition? How did you approach this work?

Drawing: CRIT – Let’s Review the PROCESS!

Your Work in the MoMA? Nope… Robert Chamberlain’s http://www.artic.edu/sites/default/files/styles/slideshow_scale/public/cal_TP_crit_360.png?itok=AhqbYJZS


  • 3.1Ac: Engage in constructive critique with peers, then reflect on, re-engage, revise, and refine works of art and design in response to personal artistic vision.
  • Looking at the still life in front of you, what is the one aspect of it that you are most pleased with? Why are you so pleased with how you handled the materials and composition?

Reflection: What was it that you took away from today’s critique? How did you contribute to the success of the conversation?
