Wednesday and let’s wrap some stuff up!

#13 Each generation gets to reinvent art in its own image. Because art is an act of description, it is inevitable that what it describes will reflect every generation’s bias of the moment. It is not a strict reflection of a time but an interpretation rendered in a language that is always in a state of transformation. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

Studio Art 360: A bit of still life and a bit of reflection.

Space: Using all of the knowledge you have gained from the first batch of sketches, create a drawing that emphasizes the idea of space, depth, form, perhaps perspective. Consider your understanding of Line, Shape, Form, Texture, and Color to complete this assignment.

Take a LONG HARD LOOK at your composition. What is happening with the FIGURE? The GROUND? The POSITIVE SPACE? The NEGATIVE SPACE? TOMORROW is the last day… Critique, Mount, and Hand Them In happens tomorrow – last 15 – 20 minutes is NOT DRAWING TIME. Keep that in Mind as we move through today.

The Objects in Morandi’s Studio!

How have you worked today on the ideas of the positive and negative space? What are you doing to RESOLVE the image for tomorrow? 


As an individual, what do you think you are going to struggle with the most in today’s (and tomorrow – and maybe Wednesday’s) Critique.


What do you struggle with when drawing hallways, perspective FROM REAL LIFE? think about the rules of perspective that you may have learned in Art Foundations class… SHARE WHAT YOU REMEMBER ABOUT THE RULES?

Hallway drawing and a CAREER!

What challenges did you have with the hallways? What perspective challenged you more that others?

Drawing: Kandinsky and YOU!

What ONE bit of theory has stuck with you as we have talked about the works and ideas of Wassily Kandinsky? Can you use any of his ideas on color and shape in your work as it is developed?

What NEW ideas do you have about COLOR and Shape in the art you are creating now that we have had some conversation and learning about the ideas of Wassily Kandinsky?
