#KORB is #GONE on #FRIDAY? #Sad.

“Perseverance is failing nineteen times and succeeding the twentieth.” — Julie Andrews

Drawing: Soft Pastels

7.2Ac: Evaluate the effectiveness of an image or images to influence ideas, feelings, and behaviors of specific audiences.

Reflect on YESTERDAY as you began your ideas on paper. What are your OVERALL IDEAS that you hope to communicate?

Biggest struggle / success for today? Write it out and the WHY!

  1. Blending ANALOGOUS colors with and without finger blending
  2. Blending COMPLEMENTS with and without finger blending
  3. Straight and Curved lines with the TIPS and with the SIDES of the pastels
  4. Filling large areas with a color and then doing smaller details over the top with another DIFFERENT color
  5. Blending with CIRCULAR marks as well as BACK AND FORTH marks
  6. Using PAPER as a masking tool
  7. Adding a WHITE HIGHLIGHT over a darker colored surface
  8. Working UPRIGHT on an easel versus on the FLAT on a table top
  9. Cleaning your pastels with paper towel
  10. Experiment on your own – use your initial images of SKETCHING for the VISUAL experiment inspiration
  11. CLEANING with SPRAY and a CLOTH RAG – that’s not an exercise but a technique that will clean a lot faster than paper towel

Studio Art 360: Character Mugs and COLOR WHEEL

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

If you ABSOLUTELY need 15 minutes to wrap up your ceramic work… take it. OTHERWISE – In your HANDBOOK – Answer the following questions: 1) What are the three PRIMARY colors? 2) What are the three SECONDARY colors?  3) List three WARM Colors. 4) List three COOL colors.

Advanced Drawing: Figure Drawing and the GESTURE

What strengths did you develop in your drawing today? What three things do you look at with your drawing and say – “Hey… that’s not so bad!”




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.

I gave you time to work yesterday and today – MAKE THE MOST OF IT. What do you need to do today?


WHAT’s the Assignment? If you need another 1, 2, or 3 concentration works – this is your assignment (one at the minimum). You will have your WEBSITE updated with 12 concentration works – PERIOD.
