Out and About in Waterford

9.1P: Establish relevant criteria in order to evaluate a work of art or collection of works. This is it folks. Last day to make work about you and for you and all chosen by you. I hope that the weather has cooperated this week. Get yourself out there and get to work.

End of the week and you have a small series of works that are all tied together. Name three things that you planned on doing to make this a series of works. How did you accomplish this idea that you set out to accomplish?


  • Anchor Standard 10: Synthesize and relate knowledge and personal experiences to make art.
  • Enduring Understanding: Through art-making, people make meaning by investigating and developing awareness of perceptions, knowledge, and experiences.
  • Essential Question(s): How does engaging in creating art enrich people’s lives? How does making art attune people to their surroundings? How do people contribute to awareness and understanding of their lives and the lives of their communities through art-making?

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.

#ThisIsIt – #FinalDays of #PleinAir #StudioArt

Week 4: Pastels and Mix it All Up

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.

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!

Remember Your Homework for next Monday!

#Taliesin, #PleinAir, and #HOMEWORK for July 10! See you on Monday at #CampWadewitz.

  1. REMEMBER – We are MEETING at Camp Wadewitz on Monday. Nobody will be at the school for access to the classroom. You need to get yourself to Wadewitz for the morning.
  2. HOMEWORK was assigned on Thursday for everyone… the three of you who were unable to go on the field trip… HERE is your copy of the assignment (I’ll have it with me on Monday too).
  3. A link to the photo album of our Taliesin Field Trip is HERE. PLEASE add your photos from our trip. This was a great day and I want as much visual to remember the visit. Your views are different than mine and I want to see what you saw too.

Ok… What’s Next?

If you are ever in the Spring Green part of Wisconsin, or are just looking for a destination for the day, Taliesin is the place to go. (Not to be confused with the House on the Rock – which is a lovely place I am sure.) My plein air artists were treated to a beautiful and insightful tour of the house and studio of Mr. Wright in Taliesin as well as the school of architecture (and lunch) at the Hillside School (information about the school itself can be found HERE). Thank you to Caroline and Becky for the hospitality and warm welcome (again). Thanks also to the hardworking artists who were able to paint, draw, and get to meet some of the folks at Taliesin. As for Mr. Korb… I got two watercolors done (one is now in the collection of Effi Casey, an instructor at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture – Taliesin) a painting of her house on the Taliesin Grounds.

Understand (Arts) Community: Learning to interact as an artist with other artists (i.e., in classrooms, in local arts organizations, and across the art field) and within the broader society. Arts is in parenthesis here as it can easily be switched with other disciplines, like science or history.

Today we’re headed to Taliesin in Spring Green WI. We are touring the home and the school with lunch in the middle. This is going to be a day of whatever materials that you are feeling comfortable with – bring everything that you feel you will be wanting to use. N: Field trip and day of tour and painting. This is all new and exciting for the kids – I hope. It is wonderful for me! I hope for them too.

Field Trip – Travel, Tour, make Art, travel, sleep.

As we drive home, what are your thoughts of the experience? What are your takeaways from the home, school, and environment? This was a GREAT trip!


Homework Due Monday, July 10, 2017 – Get started soon. Do Not push this off. A Lot of time to work on it if you start now. – ASSIGNMENT is HERE.
