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

What did you experience last week at Taliesin? What skills have you gained? How are you using this to MOVE YOUR ART FORWARD? This is about you finding YOUR work (not Mr. Korb’s work – he’s got that problem covered).Camp Wadewitz and yous ideas / work. What medium? What techniques?

It’s been 4 days for some of you… how did getting back to it work for you? Share your experiences.

Your 1 Week of Homework – Due on MONDAY July 10 – Link Here

Research the visual examples of work by one of the following artists.

Winslow Homer, Marie Bracquemond, Charles Demuth, Georgia O’Keeffe, Thomas Eakins, Mary Cassatt, Edward Hopper, Eva Gonzalès, Dong Kingman, Lucy Bacon, Reginald Marsh, Emily Carr, Charles Sheeler, Laura Muntz Lyall, J.M.W. Turner, Helen McNicoll, Thomas Moran, Georgia O’Keefe, James Whistler, Berthe Morisot, Andrew Wyeth, or Edma Morisot.

Write up (type it up in 12 point font, Times New Roman or another serif font, 1” margins, name at the top, if you do it in Google Drive – share it with fkorb@waterforduhs.us – otherwise – print it) a brief background about the artist – where they lived, where they made their work, who they knew / were influenced by… that sort of thing. Describe five (5) things (and use images as examples) that you found interesting about the work of them. Why did you choose those artists versus the others? Talk about the ways in which they used their materials and how they made their brush strokes / mark making techniques.

Then:

  • Create one work based on a direct observation of one of their works (know the Title, Medium, Size, Year, and of course the artist’s name).
  • Create one work of your very own utilizing the style of the artist you have chosen.

Two artworks DUE along with a VERY short paragraph about the artist. Monday – July 10, 2017

#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.

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.

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?

What are you using as a material? Acrylics? Pastels? Charcoal? Watercolor? http://www.pleinairfl.com/image/art/1864.jpg

What do you see in the two paintings you created yesterday that can be / should be / will be worked up today and resolved? This is a good time to see HOW the process of making art takes time and requires more work than one day / work session might allow.

Nothing new today. Continue working the images from yesterday. Plan on the field trip for tomorrow or Thursday. That’s it.

How did you resolve the ideas and the images from the past two days (6 hours) of work. Did you get to make another painting in the process? A third painting?

#Week2 #ArtWithKorb and #PleinAir #Talisin on #Thursday

The TALIESIN Field Trip is THURSDAY. We leave at 7:30AM. I hope you all get your monies and permission slips TODAY. ALSO – I need to know if a parent / guardian would like to go and DRIVE. If I can’t get a second driver, we take a bus. They need a final count and so do I. Forms are below:

  • Information Sheet HERE
  • Taliesin Hold Harmless Agreement HERE

I NEED A FINAL COUNT TODAY. Now or by 3pm via my phone. I NEED to know TODAY if you are coming to Taliesin on Thursday. I need the money NOW or FIRST THING tomorrow.


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

Today we are going to talk about the ideas of ACRYLICS specifically. We’re going to see how to build up the underlying colors of an acrylic painting by looking at the ideas of Milwaukee artist Shelby Keefe. What does a contrasting color do to help support a color laid above – laid on top of another color?

Shelby Keefe and the beginning of the plein air painting. Use of underpaintings of Complimentary Colors. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/21/e1/66/21e166036c15f133263a72427a55997e.jpg

Use of Acrylic paints in the outdoors. Dries fast. Set of Brushes and Set of Paints. (May have to share.) Cups of water and rags (RAGS are really important!) Start with the underpainting – THIN and transparent – lots of water – thin washes. After dried – pencil in the ideas and then work the paints over the top. This is a building up and building up of the images. Layers and layers of color and working. PLEASE take your time. This may be ONE painting or two paintings per day and then the same two paintings the next day.

Let’s look at what you got done today. What are the thoughts overall?

Hello @WaterfordCC102 – We’ve Got a Day Off – Sort of… Time to Reflect.

What a wonderful first week in (out of) studio. You artists did a wonderful job. Here are some images to reflect back on the week with. Take it easy (no… go out and make more art). Thank you to all the parents and guardians who have supported and encouraged our artists to make art over the summer!

“Everything in nature is harmony; a little too much, or else too little, disturbs the scale and makes a false note. One must reach the point of singing true with the pencil or with brush quite as much as with the voice; rightness of forms is like rightness of sounds.” – Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres


Breakfast at MARTY’s this morning at 8:00 – Who is joining me?

From neighborhoods to nature and now cityscape – downtown – what kinds of challenges have you had in the making of art on the scale, speed, effort that you have in this experience?

Edward Hopper Drug Store: http://www.edwardhopper.net/images/paintings/drugstore.jpg

Looking at Edward Hopper and the ideas of the architecture in the area – how are you able to (without a ruler) use the ideas of the buildings and space around it to create successful images? Watercolors. 1 – 2 (maybe 3) paintings. Out and about in the downtown area. From Uncle Harry’s to the Bridge and Waterford Dental and then down to the Bill Czaja Insurance Agency – how can you work and take in the space that is in front of you. We will be back again soon. Watercolor paintings.

We’ve got a lot of artwork made this week… what kinds of thoughts have you had about the skills developed, learned, pushed, challenged?
