4 Day Week with #SPARK day on #FRIDAY – Let’s #MakeArt until then.

We have another shortened week but it is a series of FULL DAYS. I will miss two of them for a conference and then a field trip. Sorry – not really but it’ll be great to see you work without me over your shoulders. Week one was good and I am getting to know who you all are – some more than others. Think about the CHARACTER that you are putting forth and how that is affecting your work.

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

Drawing: Still Life – Collage – Thumbnails


Express: Learning to create works that convey an idea, a feeling, or a personal meaning.

Look a the thumbnails from last week and discuss with a neighbor what is working in the composition and what is not.

What have you learned today about how to push / pull space with value? Perspective? What have you accomplished with pencil? What is SUCCESSFUL in your drawing?

Studio Art 360: Sol LeWitt and the LAST DAY of it.


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? We are EVENTUALLY going to use one of the color studies in a painting for the next artwork.

BALANCE + 1 in a bit…

What challenges did you have in the ideas of drawing out the Sol LeWitt ideas? How do you see us using this later? Can you?

AP Studio Art: Mid Crit and then MAKE ART

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.

As you look at the middle of the 25 artworks – what are the hurdles that you see in front of you?  What are the hurdles that you have already jumped over?
