BIG REMINDER – Work time folks. Remember that you need to be aware of:

Let us put our experiences to use. Abstraction can help you focus on the techniques of the acrylics as well as being able to play with the ideas of the abstraction of the images. This is also a series of LIFELONG SKILLS that one can use always as they paint – this is something that is more than just a today assignment.

Let’s QUICKLY visit the OLDEST works that we can look at and then some contemporary works by Native American Maria Martinez. The links here are just like last week but we are going to look at them this week. Briefly!

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
