“Each generation gets to reinvent art in its own image.” Because art is an act of description, it is inevitable that what it describes will reflect every generation’s bias of the moment. It is not a strict reflection of a time but an interpretation rendered in a language that is always in a state of transformation. Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White
We only have 2 1/2 weeks left of classes after our break. Make sure you are ready to work and be prepared with your final projects!
Intro to Painting – Abstract Acrylic Still Life: Canvas building and preparation for the final painting
This week we continue to BUILD our canvases so that they are ready to take home and get started on. This is a lot of responsibility for you so… make sure you are coming in and getting the work done. If you do not this week there is going to be a lot more to do when you come back. Sign up for ET or Study Halls.
Intro to Digital Art and Photography – Illustration and Literature _ RUBRIC and DONE!
Make sure you are ready to CRITIQUE the final illustration based on your choice in literature. This was a VERY OPEN ENDED work of art for you to demonstrate your skills in Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign… All of these skills will pay off down the road. Have your RUBRIC FILLED OUT so that you are able to get the CRITIQUE points to demonstrate your knowledge of the process of self reflection. Also be prepared to TALK about your classmates work – success and struggle (with suggestions).
Art Foundations – Metals Wrap up, Rubric, and Ceramics Glazing
CRITIQUE the METALS WORK and then GLAZE the POTTERY. It may take a day after break to finish so… make sure that you are making notes about the colors that you are using.
- 3 coats of glaze!
- Careful application
- DO NOT GLAZE THE BOTTOM
- Wipe a thin bit off the VERY BOTTOM so they do not stick to the Kiln Shelf.
Make Photographs of LANDSCAPES over break! Think about the neighborhoods, city, trees and other landscapes that you might run across. HOMEWORK.
Have a GREAT BREAK!
