  • G: 7.1P: Hypothesize ways in which art influences perception and understanding of human experiences.
  • A:What are you hoping to accomplish today as we get back into our DAY 2? Two more periods and then we wait for them to dry.
  • G: How have you researched and developed the ideas into your OWN idea versus someone else’s? How has your development of the process moved ahead?

  • G: 1.2Ac: Choose from a range of materials and methods of traditional and contemporary artistic practices to plan works of art and design.
  • A: What did you do last block and what do you need to do today to get a solid block of work accomplished? This is using the skills that you have and the research that you have done to make strong progress in the portrait. Please remember that this is the final exam work of art and you have a goal. The artists you have researched are a part of the work as well. Some of the artists are going to be easier to incorporate into the work. Hey… what about the negative space? The background? Are you thinking about that?
  • G: day 2 of painting is done… What are your results and what do you need to do to take this home over the weekend to get a good set of work done for the remaining days in the studio?

  • G: 7.1Ac: Recognize and describe personal aesthetic and empathetic responses to the natural world and constructed environments.
  • A: Looking at the work from 5 feet back – what do you see> Open your HANDBOOKS to week 13 and sit quietly with your painting for a few minutes and reflect. Write out your thoughts. I will be coming around to talk about them during the block.
  • G: What do you look at after the block has finished in regard to the work you saw at the beginning of the period? Reflect back on your writing – write any further reflections you might have.

  • G: 1.2Ac: Choose from a range of materials and methods of traditional and contemporary artistic practices to plan works of art and design.
  • A:DAY 1: What Book / Story / Song have you brought in and thought about to use as your inspiration for this ILLUSTRATION in Photoshop? As you have read, listened to the “literature”, what have you pulled from the “story?” Is it a phrase, an idea and feeling from the ENTIRETY of the story? IS it a character? Is it something entirely different? This is going to be your PERSONAL ILLUSTRATION about the work of literature.
  • G: Looking over the THUMBNAILS and SKETCHES you CAME IN WITH… What have you accomplished today in the process of ILLUSTRATING the work of “LITERATURE.” How are you making strong artistic choices (look at the Artist Habits of Mind to make a reflection on here).

  • What did you accomplish today that helps the cover and the article tie together? Colors? Fonts? Images?
