What is ONE THING you really want to explain about the work you have created regarding the Art and Fear Chapter you chose. Write this out so you have a starting place to talk when you explain your work.

What 2 things are you most pleased with regarding the works you see / made out Art and Fear? ASSIGNMENT – Symbolism and BREADTH – You need to bring in a couple of still life objects that can easily be held in your hand (which will be photographed and then printed) to practice the ideas of observation. What have you got that you can bring in that helps to really tell about yourself, your interests, your passions? The practice of the still life – observation – is a skill that readers (AP and the rest of the art viewing world) recognize as important to the building of the skills of an artist. How can you demonstrate those skills? Many drawings? One Drawing? How can you use the time to really build your BREADTH?
