  • 1.1Ac: Individually or collaboratively formulate new creative problems based on student’s existing artwork.
  • REVIEW the beginning stages of your portrait. What is standing out as successful? What is standing out as needing resolving COMPOSITIONALLY? Now is the time to FIX the issues.

Reflection:  What do you need to look at tomorrow and think about – fix, change, clean up? WRITE THAT DOWN and make sure you deal with that first thing tomorrow!

  • 2.2Ad: Demonstrate understanding of the importance of balancing freedom and responsibility in the use of images, materials, tools, and equipment in the creation and circulation of creative work.
  • What are you thinking about in the work you are going to begin? Materials? Poses? Ideas about the work? Mug Shot? Action Shot? Portrait? Figurative Work? I am leaving this up to you! I WANT you to work on the idea of a portrait though…

Reflection: What have been your first marks – ideas you are making in the idea of the portrait?

  • 2.1Ad: Experiment, plan, and make multiple works of art and design that explore a personally meaningful theme, idea, or concept.
  • What is it about the figure that you are still uncertain about? The Drawings are ALL ABOUT LOOKING and I expect you to be working and FOCUSED 100% of the time.  

Reflection:  What aspect of the drawing do you find successful? Why?
