#Week5 #StillLife and #Value and #Watercolors and #LogoDesign… Lots to accomplish this week!

Art is a continuing dialogue that stretches back through thousands of years. What you make is your contribution to that dialogue. Therefore, be conscious of what has come before you and the conversation that surrounds you. Try not to repeat what has already been said. Study art history and stay alert to the dialogue of your moment.  101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White
