  • With all the new glass now in the cabinet, it is time to really look at the deadlines. This second panel deadline will be WEDNESDAY and we group critique on Thursday. Panels will be cleaned, photographed, installed in the gallery, and grades uploaded on Friday.
  • Today we are doing a “close to final” group critique. Your final self assessment rubric will be filled out later this week. Your written comments on the rubric will be actionable items. Not… “I like x,y, or z in your work.” But rather “there are issues with the gaps in the frames and you could fix that by doing this…”

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

Drawing: Nests and Drawing

  • 7.2Ac: Evaluate the effectiveness of an image or images to influence ideas, feelings, and behaviors of specific audiences.
  • 2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.
  • STILL LIFE in FRONT of you… well… the beginnings of a still life that is. Today we SIMPLY sit and sketch the nests in front of us. Take your time and LOOK CAREFULLY at the lines, the marks, the ways in which you can draw. From the first two days of drawing we will begin the still life based on these natural works of engineering.
  • What challenged you with the still life ideas today? What ELEMENTS did you focus on? What Principles (movement? balance? repetition?) did you use? Are you thinking COMPOSITIONALLY?

AP Studio Art: Concentration / Crit – Jim Dine Plants and Flowers – PRINTS to be completed in the end.

  • 1.1Ac: Individually or collaboratively formulate new creative problems based on student’s existing artwork
  • 9.1Ad: Construct evaluations of a work of art or collection of works based on differing sets of criteria.
