#Welcome to the 4th Quarter – Last Quarter of your #Waterford #Career?

Get out your handbooks!

Experience can act as an object. Art has traditionally been object oriented. But with the emergence of performance, installation, sound- and time-based media, ephemeral experiences and relationships can now be thought of as surrogate objects embodying the art impulse. This is in keeping with the fleeting and disembodied nature of much of what passes for objecthood in the simulated realm of the digital. Objects must be thought of as pulses of energy and patterns, not just solid volumes. 101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White

  • Four days to work on the stained glass. The GOAL for the week is to FINISH the piece. This is completely in EVERYONE’S reach. If you are FAR from finished you are in need of coming on and getting yourself to work outside of class. Some of you are doing a good job cutting, but have ZERO foiled and ZERO soldered. Are you in that category? Look at what you currently have begun and write out a FOUR DAY PLAN. Monday I plan on… Tuesday I will… Wednesday I am going to… Thursday I will finish this work up and fill out my rubric and hand in the final work of art.

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

  • Open your sketchbook and get out your 10 magazine covers. Let’s look at previous handbook covers and other handbook covers from additional locations. What is a common idea that you are seeing in the covers? What are areas that you see as unique and individual? We have some VERY SPECIFIC instructions that we are going to follow… wait for it though… I want you to design for a bit first.

  • Gather into groups of FOUR with NEW PEOPLE that you are not used to working with. Not the people you are sitting next to most of the time. Sit down and work with one another through the back of the rubric and give one another real feedback and critique. This is a 15 minute process… Ok? Ok. Go to it!

  • What are the biggest fears that you have about the ideas of drawing a full human figure? Why do you think this is so tough? Beginning with a general idea of the figure and a reference with the mannequin – you will draw out the proportions and stance of the models for a few minutes and then transition to the human form. Using various references, you will look very carefully and recreate the figures.
