“Nothing in life that’s worth anything is easy.” – Barack Obama, SOTU 2014 

Difficult Task – https://media.licdn.com/mpr/mpr/AAEAAQAAAAAAAAUJAAAAJDJkZDM3MzYyLTU0YmEtNDRiNy1hYThkLTRmNTU0ODJjZDY4Mg.jpg

Drawing: Books and Oil Pastels

Reflect: Learning to think and talk with others about an aspect of one’s work or working process, and learning to judge one’s own work and working process and the work of others.

What have you learned today about how to push / pull / develop space using perspective? What have you accomplished with pencil? Pastel? Charcoal?

How have you accomplished success today? 3 things.

Studio Art 360: Balance and Ideas

2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan.

What is a balance? What is a pattern? What patterns and balance are you drawn to? What were your favorite designs from last week’s work with Sol LeWitt?


What challenges did you have in the ideas of drawing out a pattern – repeat the simple image over and over and over?

Advanced Drawing: Begin with Fast Food

2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.

What has been the hardest part of using values for you? Share this with your neighbor and write your struggles in your goals page.

What is the progress of the thumbnails thus far? What are you doing successfully? Where are you struggling? Have you come up with a composition that you can GLUE DOWN on the WHITE ILLUSTRATION BOARD so the ideas are the same tomorrow?

AP Studio Art: Mid Crit – HANDS and Object

SHORT PARAGRAPHS PLEASE – The paragraphs are nice to see in the Art and Fear images on the website – short little descriptions to help the image along. We are always working to help our viewers understand. Where else do you need to explain your images? The AP TEST! This is practice!

3.1Ad: Reflect on, re-engage, revise, and refine works of art or design considering relevant traditional and contemporary criteria as well as personal artistic vision.

As last week progressed, how did your personal study of the hand and still life object worked? Is there a relationship between the objects? A story to tell? A demonstration of skills that are being built?
