#Friday is Here and it’s #ArtMaking Time

#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

As we are now halfway through the semester, please reflect on the skills, techniques, or tools in your art toolbox that you did not necessarily come into this studio art course with but have since developed anew, or at the least gotten a better grasp or understanding of. Please take a few minutes and write out your new skills and where you remember developing them as the quarter progressed. (Projects, discussions, feedback, reflections… be specific and write complete sentences.) Use the space to the right for more room

Studio Art 360: CLAY and Cups and Figures and Animals

 What do you currently know about using CLAY?  N: DEMO on the use of a slab of clay and the ADDITIVE and SUBTRACTIVE methods.

Here are the ideas for Final Product in the next assignment – you will have to use the same technique but with multiple solutions to the challenges – BRIGHT COLORS and GLAZES – Multiple Ideas – Clay Cup / Mug (Pinch Pot, Coils?) Animal Sculpture (look at historical ideas – REALLY OLD sculpture – stuff), Post Modern – Neo-Pop Keith Haring and other 3D Works – Bright Colors etc..

Here’s More from MY TRIPS to Milwaukee.
