Art Room Survey Says!

As we got back into the swing of things, I gave out a brief survey to get to know my young artists a bit better and to see where they were in the process of thinking about art. Not everyone has gone through and answered the survey (and I will be squaring that up SOON) but most did. Here are some of the answers! I am excited to work with these folks and to see how they succeed in the visual arts!

What are two things you are excited about in regards to this class? *

  • Korb, Painting
  • I’m really excited to learn in general because this class seems low stress and something that I would enjoy doing.
  • i’m not exactly sure although it was mentioned were doing and animal painting and im pretty excited for that
  • I am excited to learn to be a better painter because over the summer I did numerous paintings I just wasn’t happy with and I would love to learn how to love my artwork and stick with it because a lot of the time I feel like throwing it away or whiting it out.
  • im excited to learn about the different kinds of art and art history
  • I am excited to work with a professional and learn
  • doing art better than i used to . being in a art class this year bc i was not able to last year
  • I’m excited to let myself be creative and make new friends
  • Developing more skill in different artforms and getting a relaxing break after my first hour of advanced weights.
  • The variety of art forms we will be doing and the opportunities this class provides.
  • Experimenting with different types of art and meeting new people in the artistic environment.

What are two things you hope to LEARN / DEVELOP as skills or experiences in this class?

  • i would like to learn how to paint fur/animals in general but specifically with water color, and learn new things to do/paint with acrylic
  • My art skills in general, since I haven’t taken art since sixth grade.
  • Adding more texture to my clay sculptures other than having a smooth surface and not worrying about how it will turn out but trusting the process.
  • I want to learn to trust the process in my art work and try new things and styles.
  • I just want to get more experience with artforms I usually don’t use, and get better at art in general.
  • I hope to develop a better skill of understanding and gaining more creativity and get better at drawing or planning out a project,
  • I want to be able to look at a photo I want to take or I have taken and see the elements of the photo as if it is not just a little photo but a piece of art. To learn the fundamentals of photography so if I decide to pursue it I can do it properly
  • I hope to learn more techniques that other people use to do different art projects and I hope to develop my drawing/sketching art more because right now it’s not my strongest skill.
  • A good understanding of the different variety and features of art and develop a larger and more skillful set of tools for future art classes.

    What do you plan on doing to be successful in this studio course? STUDIO HABITS!

    • I plan on practicing and focusing on my art, normally I just kind of paint with out thinking and it looks weird but I think that if I really focus I can make something great.
    • getting as much time for art as possible
    • Trying to not let myself be too perfectionistic about things.
    • Using my ET time to finish art projects without falling behind and not talking with friends during class too much.
    • I plan to work hard and make myself feel better about what my art works like.
    • be more responsible and not quit when i don’t like what i drawn
    • Working hard and trying new things, also coming in during ET and study hall
    • going in during enrichment and study halls, working hard and not distracting myself
    • Always listen to directions before just starting something, asking questions if I don’t understand something. Don’t talk while the teacher is talking.
    • I’m going to always push myself to do my best and be as creative as possible so I can be unique to who I am and that will reflect in my artwork.
    • I plan to be successful by getting lots of critique from my peers on ways to improve my art and talking with my friends to help them too
