Week 3 of 4th Quarter! WOW has the time flown by.

Learn To Draw “Drawing is more than a tool for rendering and capturing likenesses. It is a language, with its own syntax, grammar, and urgency. Learning to draw is about learning to see. In this way, it is a metaphor for all art activity. Whatever its form, drawing transforms perception and thought into image and teaches us how to think with our eyes.” 101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White – Sol LeWitt

Intro to Painting: GENRES in ACRYLICS

ACRYLICS are upon us and we are going to be exploring the techniques they have to offer.

Sonia Delaunay
Electric Prisms 1913

Orphism (1912–13): Coined by the French poet and art critic Guillaume Apollinaire. The name comes from the musician Orpheus in ancient Greek myths, as Apollinaire thought that painting should be like music. Main artists Robert Delaunay and Sonia Delaunay also used the term simultanism to describe their work of this period.


Week of PAINTING! This is about TECHNIQUE as well as considering the ideas of TECHNIQUES. Make sure you are paying CLOSE ATTENTION to the techniques and the final product. FOCUS on the work!
