Tuesday and the Color of Art is moving us Forward!

52 Every color has an opposite, called a complement. Complementary colors sit opposite one another in the color wheel. Additionally, all colors are affected by the presence of other colors. Even the smallest presence of a complement will enhance the intensity of a color when it is present in the same visual field. The presence of red, for instance, will cause the retina to “seek” green in the other colors present, hereby enhancing all parts of the green spectrum. If you wish to intensify a color in a composition, place some of its complement nearby. This applies to all media. The effective use of color is one of the greatest tools at an artist’s disposal. – Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

Last Day of #CRIT and the #TURKEYDay Break!

51: Learn the basic principles of color. There are three primary colors: red, blue, and yellow. They are the building blocks of all other colors. The secondary colors are violet (blue and red), green (blue and yellow), and orange (red and yellow). They are composed by the equal mixture of two primaries. All other colors are referred to as tertiary, because they are mixtures of a primary and a secondary color. Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

Studio art 360: Sketchbook Tuesday

2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan. A: What do you feel is the value of practicing in a sketchbook? How can you see this as being a place that others (engineers, designers, architects, artists) might need as a valuable tool?

Please grab hold of a piece of candy from the pile in the classroom. Open the candy and eat it. Keep the wrapper and STAPLE it into your sketchbook – folds and all. Look at how the 2 contemporary artists Stephen Shanabrook and Veronika Georgieva worked together. Fold, crease, wrinkle it a few times and overlap a bit of it. Use a VIEWFINDER (provided) trace out the empty space on a page in your sketchbook (you’ll be drawing in that space later). Choose a PORTION of the folded candy bar image and, using the VIEWFINDERS (look at the new compositions and simplify it), and draw it out to the best of your ability (HB – Hard Pencil to start, colored pencil to finish). The ideas are all up to you.
