  • A: Sit down for 7 minutes and write – just freehand write about yourself and your artist journey – what has it been? What do you enjoy doing / making / seeing / creating in  your art? What OTHER things are influencing you as you make your work? Do you have anything beyond the classroom that influences you?
  • G: What sort of writing were you able to come up with today? What images have you gathered in the process of your research today? What magazine cover styles have your looked at? What page layouts have you considered? What are you going to do to create a QUALITY page layout and then an article / magazine cover for yourself? This is a challenge that will be worth your while.
  • BIG HUGE NOTE: Create a gathering of 5 – 10 page layouts from ONLINE RESEARCH and insert them into a GOOGLE DOCUMENT – and then HAND IT IN THROUGH GOOGLE CLASSROOM. This is DUE at the end of the class period today – it will keep you on task.

Advanced Painting: Figurative Art – RESEARCH!

Please let me know what artwork you are submitting for the Mary Horde Art show in this Spreadsheet and make SURE you have your art here and to me on FRIDAY!

  • G: 7.1Ac: Recognize and describe personal aesthetic and empathetic responses to the natural world and constructed environments.
  • 10.1Ac: Utilize inquiry methods of observation, research, and experimentation to explore unfamiliar subjects through art-making.
  • A: What are your plans and who is inspiring you in the process. The ideas for your artwork WILL be ready to go the next time we meet – you WILL be presenting your ideas to me and then begin painting / drawing it out. We have 3 weeks to complete this artwork so we can move on. Reference materials – photographs, writings, planning – all of that will be ready to go for next block.
  • HUGE NOTE: Please take the time to read over the following EDITORIAL article about 20 Female Artists who Are Pushing Figurative Painting Forward during class and at your own pace. Advanced Painting… Remember that this is SOLID CONTEMPORARY WORK! https://www.artsy.net/article/artsy-editorial-these-20-female-artists-are-pushing-figurative-painting-forward
  • ALSO – Do you HAVE TO GO ABSTRACT? No! Some like that – some don’t. This is YOUR idea, your plans, your work.
  • G: Research online, in your sketchbook – don’t forget to think scale. The ONLY guideline that I am HOLDING you to is that the work if FIGURATIVE in nature (based on and observed from a real person – whole figure – or most of – NOT A PORTRAIT) and the rest is up to you. It is IMPORTANT that you are exposed to the idea of working from a figure. Make DARN SURE you are ready to go next time. Images, Photographs, Sketched, Materials, Canvas BUILT!
