Art Foundations: Collage Social Commentary and then Ceramics from the collage idea.

  • G: 10.1P: Document the process of developing ideas from early stages to fully elaborated ideas.  
  • A: What are you doing to SUCCESSFULLY create a REAL sense of SPACE in your COMPOSITION? This is the last day to cut and paste into the collage. WRAP it up TODAY! Next time we RUBRIC (and gel medium or mog podg) and move into the CERAMICS, SCULPTURE, and MANIPULATION approach to the artworks.
  • G: How have you been able to think about your artwork being something that CAN affect how someone who looks at your work and their ideas about bullying?

  • 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 abstraction. 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? What is the CONTENT – the MEANING / MESSAGE behind your work? Are you thinking about that? WHILE YOU WAIT TO SAW AND BUILD… MAKE SURE YOU ARE DRAWING and ADDING COLOR to your designs and plans! This is MANDATORY in the planning process. Abstraction Handout
  • G: day 2 of building 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?

MoMA In the Studio Series on YouTube – Great to see how various abstractions are made. HERE


Intro to Digital Art and Photography: RUBRIC and HAND IT IN! Photography and the Elements and Principles! TODAY we MAKE PHOTOGRAPHS!

  • 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: Photography – Let’s look at the ideas of what makes for a good photograph and how you can use this to create a strong body of work… Today we will be going out into the building to make photographs based on the ELEMENTS and PRINCIPLES. Your final project here will be a presentation of the portfolio of Element and Principle Photographs and a final series of images that demonstrate your understanding of a strong photograph.
  • You WILL have an assignment that uses these and additional photographs made specifically for this assignment (you CANNOT use old photos made prior to last time we met. This is an honor thing.
  • G: What did you accomplish today in the time we had for photography? Strong images? How were you able to make the best use of your time? Thinking about the images you created today… how many of the Elements and Principles were you able to document? Able to capture in a unique and original way?
TAKE YOUR SKETCHBOOK and MAKE NOTES about what you are working to communicate or emphasize in the work. Look at the setting of your camera and make literal note of what setting you are using. i.e.: I am making this photograph of my fish, Yves Klein, to demonstrate the composition of No Horizon, Frame Within a Frame, and Rule of Thirds. The principle is Balance (asymmetry) as the fish and bowl are pushed hard to one side of the picture plane. My Element is Space as I am creating a large negative space with the counter top and floor and positive space with the fish and bowl.
