Just a #FewDaysLeft… What do you need to do to FINISH? #Glazing #Painting #Design

MARY HOARD ART SHOW – Entry Form HERE! Think about the work you are wanting to exhibit, grab a form, and get it here.

“All art is quite useless.” — Oscar Wilde: Art isn’t utilitarian, and if it is, perhaps it isn’t art. Art serves a non-practical role in our lives, but that does not mean that it is not vital or necessary. One’s individual identity and our collective identity as a culture have no clear serviceability, but they are critical to our ability to function as a society.

  • 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? Clean your shelves at some point this week AND decide, if you are not taking another art course this year, what work you will have in the Mary Hoard Art Show.
