#LatePost on #Wednesday

SO SORRY about the lateness of today’s post – Painting a bathroom last night and the evening got away from me. Ok, What’s Next?

#17 Drawing is About Mark Making

“Every mark has a distinct character and quality.Every mark is a signature. Variations in pressure and weight is the visual equivalent of intonation. Marks, or lines, of consistent weight or thickness surrounding a figure or object will flatten the image. Tapering or breaking a line in a curve can connote a highlight or make the curve flow. Also, a tentative line will read as such. Give every mark or line authority and make sure it serves a purpose. Try to use only the marks you need.” 101 Things Learned in Art School, Kit White, 2011, MIT Press

Welcome to National Arts and Humanities Month! Today – VISUAL ARTS!



While it is UNCERTAIN where we are exactly in the process of making art at this point, please take a sticky note (or two or three) and place it next to your work – hopefully we are in an unfinished state. Take time and WALK AROUND the studio and comment on your classmates work – complete sentences – and give them the feedback that you would like to receive as a learning artist. Stick these stickers in your folder RIGHT THERE.

Studio Art 360: TECHNOLOGY!

last day on the computer. How do you envision this tool, use of the tools, to be something that could be used as a tool in a future career?

Looking back on the past 3 weeks of construction, collaboration, and creativity, what is one soft skill and one hard skill (AHOM, NVAS) that you feel you have developed? Explain.



What challenges did you have with the watercolors last week when it came to Techniques painting for you?

Jean Lacy: Collage and CityScape – Social Commentary. https://southernspaces.org/sites/default/files/images/2015/rowell-002-cover2-lg.jpg

Develop / collect images, consider the ideas about yourself and surroundings. This is going to be a SELF-PORTRAIT of sorts – no that it is going to look like you but rather… the objects and images, surroundings, ideas will be about you.

What are 5 images you gathered today that say something about you?  Jean Lacy – Social Commentary Collage:

Beautiful use of the NEST idea. What does the idea of NEST mean to you? https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/8c/93/3c/8c933c98529e7fdc5399a3370640ed44.jpg

What feedback would you offer and like to get about your work? Elena Ray:

What have you been doing to try and create a work of art inspired by the outside? Where do you see this drawing / artwork going? How are you using the materials from outside to make GREAT ART?
