#78 Self-portraiture has a long and storied history. It is something that most artists undertake in their training. It can yield great revelations of character and technique as in Rembrandt, van Gogh, and Bacon. It will succeed or fail based on its interest as an image. Try to judge it as an image, not as a mirror. Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

STUDIO ART 360: Sketchbook (and Color Scheme)


Let’s Make Flashcards and LEARN HOW TO MIX COLORS! N: Build Color Scheme Flashcards. 3 cards per note card.

Kahinde Wiley – Color Scheme? Painting? Pattern? https://hoenartinsight.files.wordpress.com/2014/02/kehindewiley_randersonromualdocordeiro_theworldstage_brazil_2008.jpg

What color schemes are you struggling with as you develop your understanding? What is challenging about it?



the results r great !! i am actually very impressed that you went beyond –
to make a drawings of the crumble pieces. it is a perfect move –
to show kids the possibilities and open the wide range of vision.
just perfect move!) and next one – as you said seems perfect too –
to the large scale paintings from it. plus it does bring the idea of pop –
using common objects reminding of course of warhol as well as rosenquist paintings
ps. next time in WI – coffee would be great)

PAINTING: Oil Painting Coming Up Soon… Let’s build a DESIGN! Talk about the ideas here.



What challenges do you see in the use of OIL paint versus Acrylic paint? What advantages do you see in the use of oil over acrylic?

Oil Painting – What are you interested in when it comes to the contemporary world of Art? http://i01.i.aliimg.com/wsphoto/v0/32324421311_1/HOT-PRINT-OIL-PAINTING-40-30-THE-EYE-WITH-DROP-OF-WATER-WALL-ART-HOME-DECORAGIFT.jpg

What ideas do you see coming out from others works as you took the 4 minutes to walk around today and see what others are doing? How can you see working with OTHERS in a COMMUNITY as being beneficial to the development of your art?

Using CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS as your impetus… you will need to RESEARCH a GALLERY ARTIST that is CONTEMPORARY and base your pose on their composition. This might be homework, but it’ll be worth it! http://artviaanderson.weebly.com/theory-and-practice/self-portraits-then-and-now

What successes did YOU have today? 


AP STUDIO ART: CRITIQUE TODAY and the Website and Uploads! I’ll Photograph your images!

How have YOU begun to understand the importance of reflection and revision?

What is something that you took away from the critique today – whether it be about YOUR work or about another person’s work.

REMEMBER-ASSIGNMENT FOR FRIDAY! THAT’S THE DUE DATE! ON YOUR OWN! NO QUESTIONS ASKED! You will have the 2 questions about your AP Concentration written – AND PROOFED by a classmate – and then pasted into the CONCENTRATION Portion of your pages. ALSO – You will have a GALLERY of 6 images FROM YOUR CONCENTRATION ITSELF uploaded to the CONCENTRATION PAGE. As a BONUS – you will have up to 6 and no fewer than 3 BREADTH works on your breadth page… I might be making some changes to these pages as we move along so… be prepared to LISTEN CAREFULLY and FOLLOW MY INSTRUCTIONS – I am hoping to streamline the process.
