#Friday ALREADY? 4 Classes you MUST attend.

Ten Things You MUST Give Up To Move Forward – Stephen Covey

Drawing: Thumbnails and Composition!

Thumbnails and Drawing – What’s interesting to you? https://korbartwuhs.files.wordpress.com/2016/01/6a64c-esplin1.jpg


  • 2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.
  • Most young artists work with their FIRST idea and that’s it. What might the benefit be to begin with MORE ideas? When you sketch in your binders / homework… where do you mostly get your ideas from?  How do you define OBSERVATION?

Reflection: As you drew today, how have you begun to break the shapes and forms down into more bite sized, more manageable pieces? Do you need to LIGHTEN UP your initial drawing? Do you need to get the WHOLE COMPOSITION figured in first? Are you really OBSERVING?

Studio Art 360: VALUE SCALES!

HOPE – How does Indiana use the same idea with different words? http://media.trb.com/media/photo/2011-11/159353720-03073954.jpg


  • 2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan.
  • What did you do successfully yesterday with VALUES that you can continue with today? What is it you need to erase, change, resolve to make the drawing today even more successful.

Reflection: What is one thing you are putting into your drawing of the 3D Forms and VALUE in the worksheets that you demonstrated and / or learned about in your Artist Trading Cards from last week? Make sure you are really need to be aware of the Elements and Principles as you are making art.

AP Studio Art: CRIT TODAY! 

How’s the critique Jerry? https://abiggerworldyet.files.wordpress.com/2010/07/20100610_art_560x375.jpg


  • 4.2Ad: Critique, justify, and present choices in the process of analyzing, selecting, curating, and presenting artwork for a specific exhibit or event.
  • What are TWO THINGS you took away from YESTERDAY’s Critique that you can see as helping you become a stronger artist? 

Reflection:  Look at the List of Habits of an Artist on page 30 in your folder. What is one area that you feel you may need to look at strongly as you move forward into the next artwork?

Advanced Drawing: Fast Food Nation.

  • 4.2Ad: Critique, justify, and present choices in the process of analyzing, selecting, curating, and presenting artwork for a specific exhibit or event.
  • Step back from your drawing and write out two things you see that are in need of attention FIRST! WRITE them down and then write down the WHY they need attention.

Reflection: Turn to the second set of pages in your rubric packet and get together with a friend / fellow artist and consider this a PRE-mid critique (sort of) and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the work you have in front of you. In the space provided in the RUBRIC write out your thoughts about the good, the bad, and the ugly WITH EXPLANATION. Are you STRONG, GOOD, BASIC, WEAK, or POOR – WHY? Execution, Composition, and Character – all
