#Drawing Week #Monday in the #Studio

#2 Learn to draw. Drawing is more than a tool for rendering and capturing likenesses. It is a language, with its own syntax, grammar, and urgency. Learning to draw is about learning to see. In this way, it is a metaphor for all art activity. Whatever its form, drawing transforms perception and thought into image and teaches us how to think with our eyes.

Join us in the Cafeteria this week for a little bit of COLLABORATIVE work on a BIG ART PROJECT!

AS WE BEGIN THE WEEK: Look back to page 12 in our folder and rewrite your statement about the Artists Habits of Mind. That is it. I want you to be thinking about the techniques that we, as artists, need to be aware of and focus on as we move forward in our studio practices.
