  • Observe: Learning to attend to visual contexts more closely than ordinary “looking” requires, and thereby to see things that otherwise might not be seen.
  • What is the ONE thing you are learning about the figure at this point? Maybe it is an OBSERVATIONAL thing… Maybe it is something else entirely (look at page 30 in your folder…).

Reflection: Have you explored a new medium? Have you attempted to work with and through a new (or familiar) material in your work? EXPLAIN in THREE SENTENCES. What has it done for your drawing? DUE END OF CLASS TOMORROW – CRIT IS DUE TOO. Last 10 minutes of class.

  • What ONE ARTISTIC SKILL from PAGE 30 of Artist Habits of Mind did you take away from the 50 Sheets of Paper? 

Reflection: What is one thing you added to today’s critique that made the conversation truly move forward? If nothing – what is ONE THING YOU THOUGHT ABOUT!
