#Thursday and #Back to the #ArtMaking

#13 Each generation gets to reinvent art in its own image. Because art is an act of description, it is inevitable that what it describes will reflect every generation’s bias of the moment. It is not a strict reflection of a time but an interpretation rendered in a language that is always in a state of transformation. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

Studio Art 360: Mid Crit – Hang up your work on the chalkboard!

8.1P: Interpret an artwork or collection of works, supported by relevant and sufficient evidence found in the work and its various contexts.

As you examine this work of art, what are the larger SKILLS you have developed in the process?  N: SELF and PEER MID Critique. This is a ONE day process. Allow a break in the process to group up IN THE NEW GROUPS and discuss the STRENGTHS and WEAKNESSES / SKILLS of the Pencil Drawing using the RUBRIC that is handed out.


As artists, we are in it for the process of MAKING ART, not necessarily worrying about the finished product. How do you feel about the idea of  PROCESS versus PRODUCT.

AP Studio Art: today we look into the 1) Next Artwork or 2) Work of Art – Season Finale – .

1.1 Ad: Visualize and hypothesize to generate plans for ideas and directions for creating art and design that can affect social change.

What social topics are out there that are important to you and you would like to see impacted by your behavior / action? Let’s have a conversation about that.


Mark Tansey: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_VPLOFeveda8/TOCiCEypYBI/AAAAAAAAAlE/av6BstrUB0Y/s1600/Fig2.jpeg

Mark Tansey (NYTimes Article) is the artist we are going to be looking at and his MONOCHROMATIC works are the impetus for the work. 1/2 week monochromatic drawing based on the work of Mark Tansey – Spin the wheel of adjectives, prepositions and nouns to come up with 10 working titles, build an art historical referenced collage that is referenced from the title and work a small pencil drawing with a monochromatic watercolor wash as a the background. Study the techniques, process and rationale of Mark Tansey. Drawing, painting, pastel, your choice in mediums, techniques, approaches. Collage and Additional Work are final products.

Illustration board and watercolor demo – wash a THIN COLOR over the top, pencil / paint / marker – their choice for the work over the top. Decide upon the social topic and imagery that one might use. Spin the wheel for a title and see how one can make that work as an impetus for the work (3 spins – 1 final title – one can assemble the different spins to come up with the best title).

From your research today, what are your social topic ideas? How are you seeing yourself as a changer in the world through the arts?
