#Artmaking in the #ArtStudio – Coming up on the End of the Quarter – #WHAT?

Art is the product of process. “Whether conceptual, experimental, emotional, or formal, the process you develop yields the image you produce. The materials you choose, the methods of production, and the sources of the images should all reflect the interests that command your attention. The process does not stop with each work completed. It is ongoing. The cumulative result of that process is a body of work.”– Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School


We are coming upon the end of the quarter and grades will be finalized soon. Take a moment and look back on your rubrics, sketchbook assignments and thoughts about the artworks to see if there are things you’d like to revisit and demonstrate a greater MASTERY LEVEL. Please list and explain 3 aspects of your works that you would like to redo or fix to demonstrate that learning.
