#Week5 #CorporateID #StillLife and #ObservationalDrawing and #Collage and #Watercolor – Let’s get to some serious work today!

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

Materials in the classroom – begin with just pencil and paper. Demonstrate the ideas of observation and sighting in – using the drawing tools as measuring devices. Demonstrate the use of the various pencils. Discuss the ideas of different types of compositions – OPEN and CLOSED.
