1… More… Week… That is all.

THERE IS NO LATE WORK ON OUR FINAL PROJECTS. They are either done or there is No Evidence or they are Not Proficient. That is it. Those are the options.

“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


Intro to Painting – Abstract Acrylic Still Life: Canvas building and Narrative Painting

Dana Schutz: https://metafigure.wordpress.com/stories-told-narrative-in-painting/

This is a SOLID SOLID week of painting. Figure we have 3 hours of time together… that’s not a lot of studio time so… mke sure you are signing up for ET as well (study halls if you have them) and consider taking the work home.

Part of our final critique will be a collaborative Google Slide so that we can share this collection (and the book) with one another as well as the artist Scott hunt and the authors of our stories.

Be ready ALSO for a brief mid crit – pair share document… WORK. 15 minutes TOPS!


Intro to Digital Art and Photography – Logo Research and Advertising

Is this a PICTURE WINDOW advertisement? Whatever it is the movie was pretty good!

Advertising and SKILLS THAT HAVE BEEN BUILT are what we are working with this week. What processes are you using? What programs are you focusing on? How are you using the skills that you have developed over the semester to put this final task to demonstrate all you have learned?

This is going to be a final oral critique at the end of the term so make sure you have a lot to talk about. Think about the type of advertising composition you chose to use as well as the tools you put to good use in the creation of your images. Photographs? Illustrator? Photoshop? What were the tools you used in each of these techniques?

We have ZERO TIME for late work. Period.


Art Foundations – Watercolors, Abstraction (and Ceramics Glazing)

The abstraction is the BIGGEST goal this week. Remember to stick to a COLOR SCHEME on this painting. What is YOUR COLOR SCHEME? Also, remember that you have 4 watercolor techniques that you need to work into the piece. Wet on Wet? Wet on Dry?Even Wash? Gradient? Salt? What are your plans?

We have a couple / few days to work. Glazing has been completed and the pots / vessels are in the kiln. Maybe out of the kiln by the time you see this. We are excited to see what comes out.
