The TALIESIN Field Trip is THURSDAY. We leave at 7:30AM. I hope you all get your monies and permission slips TODAY. ALSO – I need to know if a parent / guardian would like to go and DRIVE. If I can’t get a second driver, we take a bus. They need a final count and so do I. Forms are below:
I NEED A FINAL COUNT TODAY. Now or by 3pm via my phone. I NEED to know TODAY if you are coming to Taliesin on Thursday. I need the money NOW or FIRST THING tomorrow.
G: Develop Craft: Learning to use tools, materials, artistic conventions; and learning to care for tools, materials, and space.
Today we are going to talk about the ideas of ACRYLICS specifically. We’re going to see how to build up the underlying colors of an acrylic painting by looking at the ideas of Milwaukee artist Shelby Keefe. What does a contrasting color do to help support a color laid above – laid on top of another color?
Use of Acrylic paints in the outdoors. Dries fast. Set of Brushes and Set of Paints. (May have to share.) Cups of water and rags (RAGS are really important!) Start with the underpainting – THIN and transparent – lots of water – thin washes. After dried – pencil in the ideas and then work the paints over the top. This is a building up and building up of the images. Layers and layers of color and working. PLEASE take your time. This may be ONE painting or two paintings per day and then the same two paintings the next day.
Let’s look at what you got done today. What are the thoughts overall?
