“Everything in nature is harmony; a little too much, or else too little, disturbs the scale and makes a false note. One must reach the point of singing true with the pencil or with brush quite as much as with the voice; rightness of forms is like rightness of sounds.” – Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres

Field Trip Information to TALIESIN – NEXT WEEK THURSDAY – Final Numbers Monday to Taliesin. Forms Below.
Develop Craft: Learning to use tools, materials, artistic conventions; and learning to care for tools, materials, and space.
From neighborhoods to nature and now cityscape – downtown – what kinds of challenges have you had in the making of art on the scale, speed, effort that you have in this experience?
Looking at Edward Hopper and the ideas of the architecture in the area – how are you able to (without a ruler) use the ideas of the buildings and space around it to create successful images? Watercolors. 1 – 2 (maybe 3) paintings. Out and about in the downtown area. From Uncle Harry’s to the Bridge and Waterford Dental and then down to the Bill Czaja Insurance Agency – how can you work and take in the space that is in front of you. We will be back again soon. Watercolor paintings.
We’ve got a lot of artwork made this week… what kinds of thoughts have you had about the skills developed, learned, pushed, challenged?
