CANVAS BUILDING TEST HERE (and in Google Classroom)

Narrative Painting Assignment with Mark Tansey as an impetus – look at the REALISM! We are going to work in OILS when we get back.

This week we are getting the canvases built. Make sure you are getting in here as often as you can to get the canvas built and stretched. While you wait make sure you are getting your imagery and ideas gathered and developed. We are beginning with OILS and you are going to need to have supplies ready for this. I will have the paint thinner but if you have an applesauce PLASTIC jar available (or clean peanut butter PLASTIC JAR) that is best.

Advanced Digital Art and Photography: Poster Design! What can you make a poster about? Let’s talk DESIGN APPROACHES as well.


HERE is the assignment – Let’s talk about the process and the layout ideas. There is a lot to learn.

Art Foundations: Let’s open those bags of clay up and see how they lasted over spring break!


HERE is the assignment. Step back and see what you have done. What are your plans for the day? Stickynote and then I will gather it. Do this EACH DAY This week to see how you can achieve the goals and plans you have set out for yourself.

I will be trying to work out my own sculpture in clay as well.

Intro to Painting: Acrylics and Techniques: Canvas Building and Drawing for Narrative Works

Building Canvas this week and getting started.

We are working on an idea of narrative storytelling in our painting. We are also going to learn a LIFELONG SKILL and that is building a canvas. PAY ATTENTION to the demo and BE PATIENT. Safety is my #1 concern here.
