Painting and Advanced Painting: CANVAS Building

Kims Art Blog


  • 7.1Ac: Recognize and describe personal aesthetic and empathetic responses to the natural world and constructed environments.
  • Consider the layering and transparency of the images / colors… what does this visually do for you, the painter? What does it do visually for the audience? 
  • ONE ADDITION TO THE HANDOUT – RESEARCH A CONTEMPORARY PORTRAIT ARTIST, Write a One Paragraph (or more) Biography about the artist, have 5 images as visual reference with TITLE, SIZE, YEAR, MEDIUM, and have VISUAL REFERENCES to their art in YOUR painting!

Reflection / Evaluation: What is the ONE aspect of the construction of the canvas you are struggling with?

  • What challenges did you have in getting started this week on Tuesday with the clay? REQUIREMENTS FOR THIS ARTWORK: Subtractive, Additive, and Manipulation to the clay. These techniques are REQUIRED in the FINAL Sculpture.

Reflection / Evaluation: What was the largest success you have in today’s work? Take a look at the rest of the classes work BEFORE we clean up. PAUSE 10 minutes before the end of class.

  • 7.1Ac: Recognize and describe personal aesthetic and empathetic responses to the natural world and constructed environments.
  • Where in society today do you think most people get PORTRAITS of themselves made? Share your answers with your neighbor. 

Reflection / Evaluation: What is the progress of the drawing thus far? What is the progress of the SELFIE / GRAFFITI? What are you hoping to COMMUNICATE in your work? What is your neighbor doing well? What is your neighbor not doing successfully? Share your thoughts with your neighbors.
