#Abstraction in the #Hallways, #Value in the #StillLife

“The question for each man is not what he would do if he had the means, time, influence and educational advantages, but what he will do with the things he has.” — Frank Hamilton

Painting and Advanced Painting: Hallway Drawing



  • 2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.
  • Looking back at the hallway drawings from the past two days why do they TEND to be boring? What are 2 things you are considering about doing to make it EXCITING and YOUR OWN? What angles and lines are you drawn to in your thumbnails?

Reflection / Evaluation: How has TRANSFORMING and ABSTRACTING these drawings changed the boring into more interesting works. Give three SPECIFIC examples.

Studio Art 360: Value and DRAWING!



  • 7.1P: Hypothesize ways in which art influences perception and understanding of human experiences.
  • What skills do you have that will help you create a CUBE, CYLINDER, PYRAMID and LETTER in one or two point perspective that you didn’t have a few weeks ago? Describe your thoughts.

Reflection / Evaluation: Given the opportunity to SELF EVALUATE… BASED ON CRITERIA you may set up for yourself… what grade would you say you have earned? WHY!!!???

AP Studio Art: Plants and Drawing! Time to WORK!



  • 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.
  • Consider the RUBRIC AP uses. What are you doing with the first 8 cards to push yourself and challenge yourself? Are you working to make INTRIGUING and SUCCESSFUL Artworks (even though they are VERY SMALL?)

Reflection / Evaluation: Does working on these cards give you a new understanding of what you DO NOT KNOW about the ELEMNTS and PRINCIPLES? 2 reasons / explanations… THINK!

Drawing: Kandinsky and Shapes!



  • 7.2Ac: Evaluate the effectiveness of an image or images to influence ideas, feelings, and behaviors of specific audiences.
  • As this develops, how are your ideas and Kandinsky’s similar and how are they different? What might you take away from this experience? How can you share that idea with the world?

Reflection / Evaluation:  As this work develops, how are your ideas and Kandinsky’s similar and how are they different? WRITE this out from the beginning of the hour. Has it Changed?
