10 Things CREATIVE people do – Have you ever wondered why some people are more creative than others? Did you ever wish that you had more of that particular gene? The good news is that research shows that happiness and creativity are not only related, they can be developed. Here are 10 ways to jumpstart your creativity, starting now:

 

3. Get in the Flow: Focus on the moment rather than the goal. When you are totally immersed in a creative activity, when hours feel like moments, you open to tapping into something bigger than yourself. Let it flow through you.

4. Let Your Senses Come Alive: Notice not only how things look, but how they feel in your hand, how they smell, the sounds surrounding you, even the nuances of taste. Don’t forget to listen to your gut — that’s an important sense too!

Drawing: MUSIC and ART!

Reflecting on the ARTS! http://i.huffpost.com/gen/530364/JH.jpg

Goals:

  • 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.
  • LAST day with our Crit. What is KEEPING you from COMMENTING if you are NOT commenting – What makes it EASY for you to comment if you Are?

Reflection: Looking BACK on the past 3 days of critique – what are 3 things you took away from the process? We Reflected A LOT! Be READY to DRAW tomorrow!

Studio Art 360: Sculpture.

Tony Smith – Matthew Marks and MoMA: http://www.moma.org/collection_images/resized/128/w500h420/CRI_229128.jpg

Goals:

  • 2.2P: Explain how traditional and non-traditional materials may impact human health and the environment and demonstrate safe handling of materials, tools, and equipment.
  • What can you use from the process we went through YESTERDAY to continue to create a CUBE, CYLINDER, and a pyramid? Do you want to work on ALL of them at the same time or are you going to finish one and then move onto the next?

Reflection: What was the most difficult part of the building today for YOU? How can you use those challenges to develop your skills?

AP Studio Art: CONCENTRATE!

What’s the PROCESS of your ART? http://www.studentartguide.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/as-art-sketchbook.jpg

Goals:

  • 2.6 create multiple solutions to visual challenges that show understanding in relationships between composition and meaning of artwork.
  • While looking at your studio-mates work, how do  you see the works needing to GROW? Do you see  yours growing?

Reflection: What have you come up with? What materials are you planning on using? How does it fit into your current body of work? 

Advanced Drawing: Critique! PAPER for TOMORROW!

Watching Keith Haring MAKE a painting – different than seeing a finished painting. http://www.abc.net.au/reslib/201208/r997208_11061456.jpg

Goals:

  • 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.
  • One day and a WEEKEND away from the Crit – REVIEW YOUR GOALS from last Thursday and Write out 1 thing that you found beneficial from taking a step back and TALKING about your art.

Reflection: Looking BACK on the past 3 days of critique – what are 3 things you took away from the process? We Reflected A LOT! Be READY to think about making art tomorrow! This is going to be YOUR DRAWING! What can you bring in? A BOOK you can destroy, paper you might want to work on that is different than DRAWING paper (phone book, OLD dictionary, falling apart other book that is NOT important to the family, letterhead from a hotel, notepaper with text on it, old math notes, what ELSE can you think of? 50 sheets!)
