#Changes are underway on #ArtWithKorb – GET OUT YOUR #HANDBOOKS – A #Fresh, #NewStart!

To Start With – Get out your handbooks!

Curious about the lesson plan changes? Visit my planning pages and go to week 8. Compare it with week 7 (or before) to see the changes. A lot of info, simpler approach to the week – same quality though.


What a weekend. WAEA in Madison last Friday, 6 of our students with work at the Capitol Rotunda, I got to polka with the Lieutenant Governor of WI Rebecca Kleefisch. Then the night came around and I saw the Addams Family Musical at BHS with my family – dinner afterwards – what a great night. 3 musicals later and I now sit at the kitchen counter, Birk eating his dinner (lunch) and a curious new show on Netflix. I am almost ready to get things going for school. I mentioned that changes were going to take place with this website, and they are. I’ll be posting less frequently than daily, two or three times a week to keep everyone up to speed. I am using the Google Classroom more and I feel that there is more communication directly to the kids there with the assignments, but this is a place to stop and reflect with the handbook so we can  journey through the art semester with a better understanding as to what we are doing. Thank you for the follow, please share this around, and come back to use the resources that I have provided.

The human figure is a complex construction composed of a rigid frame overlaid with soft, rounded, elongated muscles. Its main volumes can be described with a series of interlocking ellipses. There are no straight lines in a body. And it is symmetrical. When laying out a figure drawing, try to do it with a series of interlocking ovals. This will insure that the figure maintains its dimensionality, its roundness in space. This roundness applies to most objects in nature. 101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White

  • What is the focal point of the composition that you are designing? How does the rest of the space (negative space?) support the dominant portion of the work. How many pieces are you looking at? Have a conversation with your classmates to discuss the challenges that you might be facing with this new work of art.

BY THE WAY: everything-stained-glass.com is a good site for your own personal research.

  • This is a two day critique of the figure drawings and then we hang them in the display cased outside of the room. Set things up and please write up your self assessment. What are you especially pleased with in the imagery? What are you still struggling with in the work? This is ESSENTIAL to make a part of your portfolio – and if not one of these, a figure drawing at the very least.
