The Waterford Seven (11) and our final days.

Thank you to Connie and all the rest of the crew for a wonderful five-week program of art making. We studied ceramics and vessel making, impressionism as we looked at Balloon Fest, and lastly we looked at Vasily Kandinsky and his abstract work. Excellent job to all of you, I am really proud of the work you created as well as your skills and efforts. Keep making art an important part of your life. You are some of my favorite artists to work with.

The Waterford Seven (11) and Impressionism

What a WONDERFUL and INSPIRED group of artists. The ideas of Impressionism were taken full on – Dot Dot Dot was the idea and the works really represented the hard efforts and learning about Oil Pastels (nobody wanted to experiment with the soft pastels – too messy). Way to go Waterford Seven.

Final Day in Plein Air. Images and information.

Yesterday was our last day of art making.  I am going to miss working with these skilled and dedicated young women.  My pride is in their hard work, showing up to make art, and sticking to it. Gallery exhibition next week on Thursday at 1PM. Thank you ladies for your efforts.

Mr. Korb

Meet in the Gallery Today. This is our LAST DAY together. 

I am without power so not able to post much as a web page today but here I go. Today we are meeting in the gallery and we will go out from there. Based on the condition of the river I highly recommend being cautious of painting close to it. We will end our day in the gallery hanging rest of our artworks and turning in all our supplies. It was a true pleasure working with each and everyone of you and I look forward to seeing you in my classes in the future. And bring a friend or two or three.

#LastDay you are #OnYourOwn in #PleinAir. NOPE… MEET IN THE GALLERY. 

WE WILL MEET IN THR GALLERY TODAY. Tomorrow you are out in the field on your own today. 

Today we will fo about cleaning up the gallery space and setting up our exhibition. The rest of this post will roll into tomorrow… 

 There is NO ACCESS to the class studio – WET WAX on the floors folks. I will be checking on you as the three (3) hours roll by. BE ACTIVE and ENGAGED as you move forward. Scroll down for more information and inspiration.

Alright – One day in and 2 more to go – 6 hours. What are your plans for the day? How do you see the works CONNECTING to one another to create a SERIES of works that relate to one another? This is what we, as artists, do to make a body of work. This is our plan for the week.

Continue of the plans of works for the week and shoot for the series. You are choosing the works and places, materials and ideas. This is all up to you.

What are three things that you see yourself doing to keep the works tied together? Important folks.

11.1Ad: Synthesize knowledge of social, cultural, historical, and personal life with art-making approaches to create meaningful works of art or design.

What have you done in the past three weeks that has interested you enough to make a small series of works about?

Create a small series of works that are based on your own personal experiences of plein air summer studio. Plan on 3 works for the final week of class and HANG A SHOW on Thursday.

Work on your own and LET ME KNOW where you are going to be.

Look at today and reflect on the experiences that you have had to create the work. What are you pleased with and where are you feeling you need work?

#Friday – Good day to be #Outside / #PleinAir – #AP Scores! Woo Hoo!

AP Studio Scores are in – I am impressed with the results.  9 / 10 3’s or better. Excellent year of art production!


HOMEWORK on MONDAY! Looking at and researching artists is an IMPORTANT way to learn about the past and develop your own skills for the future. This is not a huge task folks… it is fun research. Remember… you are in Summer Studio NOT because you WANT to earn the .25 credit but to be a stronger artist. This is how it happens.


SUMMER STUDIO WEEK 3: This was a very productive week for having only 3 days to be in studio. I am proud of the dedicated work these artists are putting forth. 3 hours is a good chunk of time to commit to the creation of artwork in the field (I am certain that some of them would like to have that during the regular studio time in the school year). These are photos from the week – Enjoy!

 

#Thursday and Making #Art (but… #Breakfast First).

Breakfast at Marty’s? Whose going to join me? I think it’ll be a quiet AM Breakfast (again).

Develop Craft: Learning to use tools, materials, artistic conventions; and learning to care for tools, materials, and space.

20170621_101601

What are you going to be looking at and dealing with as we look at foreground, middleground, and background? How have you improved / learned your skills in the 1) creating of art with supplies and 2) coming up with new and innovative compositions as we work outside?

Quick reflection at the end of the hours as a group. Next week we will be out on our own – wherever you want to be you will be. I’ll be scooting around on the scooter. Be ready to let me know where you’re going to be.


Remember to DO YOUR HOMEWORK!
