#MidWeek #Wednesday – #StudioArt in the works.

Learn To Draw: “Drawing is more than a tool for rendering and capturing likenesses. It is a language, with its own syntax, grammar, and urgency. Learning to draw is about learning to see. In this way, it is a metaphor for all art activity. Whatever its form, drawing transforms perception and thought into image and teaches us how to think with our eyes.”

FRESHMAN OPEN HOUSE TONIGHT – Art Studios are OPEN! 5:30 – 8pm. Come in and WORK!


Stained Glass:  Curved Shapes and PERFECTION

2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.

Looking over your designs, what are the strengths of the best design? Today we will be cutting the pieces out and then tracing them to glass so we can begin cutting them out. MISTAKES WILL HAPPEN and bloody fingers will too. I recommend that you buy a box of bandaids and keep them in your locker – perhaps go in with a few people for that box.

Today we draw YOU. What skills have you developed that will carry you through the work today? Go ahead and get to WORK. End of the hour – we will hand these an UPLOAD into a Google Folder (so I can look them over as an Ai image).

What strengths are you needing to continue to work on? Is it a technique? Is it a studio habit?

AP Studio Art: The View

1.2Ad: Choose from a range of materials and methods of traditional and contemporary artistic practices, following or breaking established conventions, to plan the making of multiple works of art and design based on a theme, idea, or concept

What materials have you begun with? How do you see these materials as being a good choice for this work? Are there any new materials that you could be using that would challenge you? Are you playing it safe? Are you willing to fail?
