Intro to Painting – Abstract Acrylic Still Life

BIG REMINDER – There are a lot of you with the ACRYLIC PRACTICE PAINTINGS still missing. After this week – those 2 weeks of practice will go in as a NP – Not Proficient and will be locked in as a 50%. Yikes. This does NOT represent your true skills but I cannot wait on these any longer.

It is time to put the experiences to use. Abstraction will help us focus on the techniques of the acrylics as well as being able to play with the ideas of the abstraction of the images. What are you focusing on as it comes to Analytical Cubism? Remember to SIMPLIFY and COMPLICATE. We are looking at the images from MANY DIFFERENT ANGLES.


Intro to Digital Art and Photography – FINAL DAYS of Adobe Illustrator and Architecture.

What are you doing to make this YOUR OWN? What tools, techniques, approaches are you using to make this successful? Be aware of the timeline and the end product. Make sure that you are staying on top of your time. Come in during ET and work on it at home.

REMEMBER: Always consider the below points as you are working in Illustrator (or any other digital or traditional medium / media) . The assignment is HERE as it is also in Google Classroom. Pay attention to the process and the requirements and really use your Studio Habits to stay on task and focused.

  • Layers
  • Gradients
  • Colors
  • Similarities and Differences between Photoshop and Illustrator.
  • Assignment is HERE (and in Google Classroom)

RUBRIC AND ASSESSMENT are coming up VERY soon!

Moving ahead into a NEW (but really ancient) approach to making work – and this can be FUNCTIONAL versus decorative) – CERAMICS!

Pay attention to the requirements and the way in which one has to take care of the clay as you work and as you store it.

Contemporary ceramic vessels – pretty traditional feeling. Very traditional in the process and the cultural importance. Maria Martinez. Let’s take a look – Thanks Khan Academy and PBS
