#Wednesday and you are Making #Art – We Hope

Of the works, skills, information you wrote about earlier in the week (above) write out a timeline for the next 5 days that will allow you to really work out the changes, skills, mastery so that you can (by mid-week next week) turn in the changes for a stronger demonstration of the learned skills. (All late and missing work will be DUE on the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL NEXT WEEK.)

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
