#69 Color is not Neutral It has an emotional component. Certain colors have specific associations and induce certain responses. Learn what they are. When you use color, try to determine and understand the accompanying emotional response and how to use it effectively. Color has a visceral impact. – Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

Studio Art 360: Sketchbook Tuesday (on Monday)!
What STRUGGLES do you have with OBSERVATION? How about VALUE?
SPECIAL THANKS to (Grandma) Vicki Kapellusch for coming into the Studio Art 360 studio and sharing her stories and sculptures with the young artists. It was a great opportunity to see someone else’s works and words for a change. Take a look through the slide show: HERE
Ok… For TUESDAY! Grab a hammer, screwdriver, wrench, some sort of toolbox type of tool and draw it based on careful observation. Make sure that you spend some quality time looking at the object and then also consider the space in the background. What are you doing to fill that space?
How are you considering the ideas about COMPOSITION as you create your artwork? How does the imagery we saw from Jim Dine give you permission to do NEW things and NEW ideas for your composition?
PAINTING: Hallways and Abstraction
What do you feel about the hall space that you have recreated in abstract form? Does this painting / has this painting affected the way you look at the space? N: Painting – but that is now new.
What NEW discovery did you make today about your painting? Did you learn anything about the process of painting? Creating Art?
NOTE! There is a lot of information out there on the world of CONTEMPORARY ART and it is up to you – the ARTIST – to look out there and LEARN on YOUR OWN!

Drawing: Kandinsky- Let’s GO!
Take your work out – DON’T look at it. Hang it up, step back – WRITE OUT THE FIRST THINGS THAT COME TO MIND. 3 things!
How does this work relate to 1) Kandinsky and his movements? 2) Your song? We are going to be WRITING an ARTIST STATEMENT and PHOTOGRAPHING this work this week and working on it in the computer lab. Be prepared to provide writing that is DONE! ALSO – FIND YOUR SONG ON YOUTUBE! Tomorrow we begin with a final critique reflection – then onto the ORAL CRITIQUE – BE READY TO TALK!
AP Studio Art: Concentration
What are two things (specifically) that you have accomplished during your past week as you’ve worked on your CONCENTRATION? Write out the IDEA behind your work and then SHARE the story with your classmate.
With ALL that is going on these past two weeks – and little input from me… what have you accomplished VISUALLY and / or TECHNOLOGICALLY?
What is the CENTRAL IDEA behind your concentration? Remember that you need to have a common thread / common theme / CENTRAL IDEA that ties your works together.
