#Humpday in the #ArtStudio – #Critiques and #Deadlines are Here

#17 Drawing is About Mark Making “Every mark has a distinct character and quality.Every mark is a signature. Variations in pressure and weight is the visual equivalent of intonation. Marks, or lines, of consistent weight or thickness surrounding a figure or object will flatten the image. Tapering or breaking a line in a curve can connote a highlight or make the curve flow. Also, a tentative line will read as such. Give every mark or line authority and make sure it serves a purpose. Try to use only the marks you need.” 101 Things Learned in Art School, Kit White, 2011, MIT Press

#Monday in the #ArtStudio = #Work!

This week we are going to be finishing work up. Drawing, Studio Art 360, AP Studio Art… even Yearbook is moving forward quickly. To work on the ideas of MASTERING SKILLS one needs to be thoughtful about the work they are doing – it is NOT about getting the grade or making the work to please the teacher – it is about making the work to learn from your art making. How are you doing?
