Advanced Digital Art and Photography – Doodle for Google

Take a look at the winner from a few years back…

Together As One
4-5 Grade National Finalist: Sharon Sara Frisco, Texas
Artist Statement: “I show kindness by sticking together with my friends in tough times. I drew people coming together and not thinking about the outside but being together because of their personality.”

What are you doing with this imagery that might put you in that finalist category? How are you using the ideas of How I Care For Myself and the imagery and skills you have? What does your statement read like?

Lets’ Watch, Listen, and think about the process we have been or are going through… it is time to mid crit and reflect.

Art Foundations – Color and the Watercolor and the Abstraction of Our Own Imagery

This is a solid week of learning a HIGHER LEVEL OF THINKING with the ideas of color relationships (color schemes) as well as new techniques in watercolors themselves. Please watch the videos and follow along with them. DO NOT RUSH through the process. If you take the time to learn the process you have new skills that will last you a lifetime.

HERE is the Watercolor Assignment

The Color Wheel
Color Schemes
Watercolor Techniques

Part II will begin this week as well. You can find that part of the assignment in the assignment sheet above and in the Google Classroom.

Intro to Painting: Acrylics and Techniques: We Are WRAPPING THIS UP! Then onto Analytic Cubism and using these skills in a final painting.

Looking at the ideas and techniques of painting will give you a lifetime of skills to build upon… regardless of the style of painting you do. This exercise will be wrapped up this week as we introduce the next large scale assignment – Analytical Cubism.

Carol Marine isn’t an Analytic Cubist, but what she does has it’s origins in the works of Picasso and even Cezanne as they worked to simplify and change our views on the objects and environments we interact with each day.

Assignment and Technique Sheet is HERE.

It is ALL ABOUT TECHNIQUE. Remember that in order to learn how to use the materials you need to make sure that you work with them as often as you can. Make a LOT of work and be in the studio as often as you can!

Working from and in the style of the masters has been and will continue to be part of the training of and learning for young artists. Who is your inspiration? What style of art are you engaged with and drawn to?

This is going to be some sit and take time as well as some sit and make time… be ready to stop and go throughout the first days of the week and then get into the working of this all on your own.

“Monuments Waiting With Patience and Anticipation,” Frank Korb, Gouache on Paper, 10 1/2″ x 9″, 2022.

As we begin our first run at a final oral critique – aloud in class – where everyone participates, think about the following list of things to talk about (Thank you Ms. Crow for compiling this great list to work from).

  • What was the biggest challenge for you as an artist in this project?
  • What did you like best about painting using watercolor?
  • What were some benefits of painting abstractly instead of realistically?
  • What is the focal point of your work (where does your eye get drawn to immediately)? Why?
  • What were two watercolor techniques you enjoyed using the most? Why?
  • What color scheme did you use?
  • What elements and principles did you focus on?

1… More… Week… That is all.

THERE IS NO LATE WORK ON OUR FINAL PROJECTS. They are either done or there is No Evidence or they are Not Proficient. That is it. Those are the options.

“Each generation gets to reinvent art in its own image.” Because art is an act of description, it is inevitable that what it describes will reflect every generation’s bias of the moment. It is not a strict reflection of a time but an interpretation rendered in a language that is always in a state of transformation.” Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White


Intro to Painting – Abstract Acrylic Still Life: Canvas building and Narrative Painting

Dana Schutz: https://metafigure.wordpress.com/stories-told-narrative-in-painting/

This is a SOLID SOLID week of painting. Figure we have 3 hours of time together… that’s not a lot of studio time so… mke sure you are signing up for ET as well (study halls if you have them) and consider taking the work home.

Part of our final critique will be a collaborative Google Slide so that we can share this collection (and the book) with one another as well as the artist Scott hunt and the authors of our stories.

Be ready ALSO for a brief mid crit – pair share document… WORK. 15 minutes TOPS!


Intro to Digital Art and Photography – Logo Research and Advertising

Is this a PICTURE WINDOW advertisement? Whatever it is the movie was pretty good!

Advertising and SKILLS THAT HAVE BEEN BUILT are what we are working with this week. What processes are you using? What programs are you focusing on? How are you using the skills that you have developed over the semester to put this final task to demonstrate all you have learned?

This is going to be a final oral critique at the end of the term so make sure you have a lot to talk about. Think about the type of advertising composition you chose to use as well as the tools you put to good use in the creation of your images. Photographs? Illustrator? Photoshop? What were the tools you used in each of these techniques?

We have ZERO TIME for late work. Period.


Art Foundations – Watercolors, Abstraction (and Ceramics Glazing)

The abstraction is the BIGGEST goal this week. Remember to stick to a COLOR SCHEME on this painting. What is YOUR COLOR SCHEME? Also, remember that you have 4 watercolor techniques that you need to work into the piece. Wet on Wet? Wet on Dry?Even Wash? Gradient? Salt? What are your plans?

We have a couple / few days to work. Glazing has been completed and the pots / vessels are in the kiln. Maybe out of the kiln by the time you see this. We are excited to see what comes out.


Welcome Back! We have a LOT to do in the next 2 weeks! Get ready because here it comes!

“It’s all improvised, on the spot… That exists, that’s real, What you see there is real. It’s real. I pretend it’s real, which is the same thing.” Paula Rego in response to her “still life” setups of figurative constructs for her drawings and paintings – her narrative work.


Intro to Painting – Abstract Acrylic Still Life: Canvas building and Narrative Painting

Neo Rausch “The Retreat”
https://onlineartlessons.com/tutorial/what-is-narrative-art/ – Let’s visit this article briefly…

If you are not ready to roll with the constructed canvas – you are BEHIND. Get this done with skill and precision and care. Schedule yourself in during ET. This is a required skill to learn in Intro to painting.


Intro to Digital Art and Photography – Logo Research and Advertising

What products do you use on a regular basis? Me? Look below and this explains my EVERYDAY!

Looking at Google Classroom and the assignment we are going to explore what we use on a regular basis as well. From this research we are going to create some advertising about that / those products. There are a number of things we need to consider as we move forward so buckle up and hold on tight!

Keep your eyes on TIME and DEADLINES – we have ZERO TIME for latework. Period.


Art Foundations – Watercolors, Abstraction (and Ceramics Glazing)

How many Photographs of LANDSCAPES did you make over break! These are what we are using as the images to abstract. The abstraction takes time and the process of painting does as well. DO NOT RUN OUT OF TIME! Think about the neighborhoods, city, trees and other landscapes that you might run across. This was HOMEWORK over break remember.

GLAZING the POTTERY is still on the docket and MUST get done ASAP! It may take a day after break to finish so… make sure that you are making notes about the colors that you are using.

  • 3 coats of glaze!
  • Careful application
  • DO NOT GLAZE THE BOTTOM
  • Wipe a thin bit off the VERY BOTTOM so they do not stick to the Kiln Shelf.

I hope you had a great winter break. My little grandoggy Warren was certainly worn out.

Yep… Maybe not…
