#Almost #Friday in the #ArtStudio

“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.

How have you changed in the process since you have begun? How are you drawing DIFFERENTLY than you did PRIOR to this Drawing?

Have you improved your drawings skills over the past few days?  What is the biggest success you have accomplished this week? Where are you struggling? 

Studio Art 360: BALANCE and Organic Objects

1.2P: Shape an artistic investigation of an aspect of present-day life using a contemporary practice of art or design.

How satisfied are you with the start of your 5” x 5” design? Do you see new and unique ways to make lines and be more aware of the marks that you are making in the art that you are making?

Wednesday and Thursday we are wrapping up the pressing of the design and then the inking / painting / staining of the final work. Two things you are struggling with… why? 


Let’s Look at LINE use and PATTERNS

Advanced Drawing: Begin with Fast Food


4.2Ad: Critique, justify, and present choices in the process of analyzing, selecting, curating, and presenting artwork for a specific exhibit or event.

Step back from your drawing and write out two things you see that are in need of attention FIRST! WRITE them down and then write down the WHY they need attention.

Black and White – Transparency and Layering… Janet Fish: http://www.utdallas.edu/~melacy/pages/2D_Design/value_DesignBasics/images/Fish_grayscale.jpg

Turn to the second set of pages in your rubric packet and get together with a friend – consider this a mid critique (sort of) and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the work you have in front of you. In the space provided in the RUBRIC write out your thoughts about the good, the bad, and the ugly WITH EXPLANATION. Are you STRONG, GOOD, BASIC, WEAK, or POOR – WHY? Execution, Composition, and Character – all 3. Janet Fish: 

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!***

Work Like you did yesterday – Work Like AP STUDIO ART is as challenging as AP WHATEVER ELSE… Wait, it IS…

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 you get your photographs back – what NEW materials are  you thinking about using? Are you going to try and use the techniques that you are already comfortable with? What are you doing to EXPAND and EXPLORE?

How have you used your skills to develop this one (or more – hopefully more) drawing to really demonstrate the AP LEVEL 6 skills you have?
