Hello Lola! Alexi Jawlensky: http://en.wahooart.com/Art.nsf/O/8YDE4Y/$File/Alexei-Jawlensky-Lola.JPG


  • G: 1.1Ac: Individually or collaboratively formulate new creative problems based on student’s existing artwork.
  • This is it folks – last day – Every square inch needs pastel. What’s holding you back? What has propelled you forward in the process?   Alex von Jawlensky: 
    • TOMORROW! We are going to 1) make photographs of the work we have RIGHT NOW and 2) go to the COMPUTER LAB (Laptops). Fill out the Google Form http://goo.gl/forms/3q3rPakz8m and then 3) insert images from today into the GOOGLE DOCUMENT.

Reflection: Are you taking pastels home? Where are you going to work on the drawing? What has been the HARDEST PART of the drawing?

Studio Art 360: COLOR and YOU!

Roy Lichtenstein – He actually USED other peoples cartoons to create his works that were, in some cases, about the Vietnam War – POP Art: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/b/b7/Roy_Lichtenstein_Whaam.jpg

  •   7.1Ac: Recognize and describe personal aesthetic and empathetic responses to the natural world and constructed environments.
  • What do you think the CHALLENGES FOR YOU are going to be in how we DUPLICATE the image over to the canvas? 

Reflection: As you worked on the GRID and the TRACINGS – What WERE the most challenging parts for you to create?

HERE’s where were headed with this! Andy Warhol at MoMA.

AP Studio Art: Senior Exhibition Time!

Houghton EDU – Not HIGH SCHOOL – but COOL SCHOOL – What’s OUR show going to be like? http://www.houghton.edu/am-site/media/ortlip-gallery-header-3.jpg


  • 2.1Ad: Experiment, plan, and make multiple works of art and design that explore a personally meaningful theme, idea, or concept.
  • Now that we are done with the AP Testing – time to move forward. Looking over the past year and the development of the works you created… what 2 skills did you develop and put into your Art Toolbox over the course of the year?

Reflection: What FOUR works have you chosen for the AP / SENIOR Exhibition? Have you been able to get your works mounted yet? What do you need to demonstrate to others to help them along in the process? 

Advanced Drawing: Critique? Draw?

How can you use the idea of the PORTRAIT to work up a new idea that has political or social implications? I don’t know if Alice Neel is trying that here but… it’s great figurative work: http://www.aliceneel.com/images/gallery/alice-self-portrait.jpg


  • 1.2Ad: Choose from a range of materials and methods of traditional and contemporary artistic practices, following or breaking established conventions, to plan the making of multiple works of art and design based on a theme, idea, or concept.
  • What do you have to do to complete today? What did you accomplish YESTERDAY that makes you pleased with your work and effort?

Reflection: What did you accomplish today in your work? Please take the time to write out three things that you are pleased with OR that you are struggling with – these should be things that you can or could share with Mr. Korb or your classmates.
