Stained Glass: Friday Due Date

You are all working on your first ten pieces for the second panel construction. You should have 10 pieces cut and ground and fitting tight for tomorrow – end of class – 20 points total (2 pts each piece). I expect all 10 pieces to be foiled for MONDAY – 10 points. All of this will be checked when we have 10 minutes left in class on Friday. Closed toed shoes and safety glasses are a must. I enjoy you all and you work well on their own, be self-sufficient.

CIaD: Laundry List today

OPEN GOOGLE CLASSROOM for today’s assignments – HERE it is also – but you still need to be in Google Classroom.

Drawing: WORK time and SKETCHBOOKS – German Expressionism

Portraits are your assignment. You should be self driven to work on the final drawings for the German Expressionism artwork. I insist that you have your photographs and reference images in front of you as you work. You HAVE to be looking at things as you draw. This is a MUST. Sketchbooks – Self assess your works on Pages 14 and 15 in the handbooks and at the end of the hour stack them up on the kitchen table – zigzag style.

AP Studio Art

Concentration – you know what you need to do. I ask that you have the same focus you had with the figure drawing from last week. Some of you will – some will not. I encourage you to be focused. I will check your sketchbooks FRIDAY.

Advanced Drawing: Abstraction

Abstraction on brown paper with charcoal and pastels. You are is in the throws of it all. You know where all the supplies are and that you need to be working. Some of you are talkative and social butterflies so I am keeping an eye on you. Some of you are in the hallway as we are running out of room in the studio so be aware of your space and check on one another every now and again. Please clean up with 6 minutes so they can get the space back in order and the like. CHAIRS UP!

AP Studio Art: Let’s Keep Talking

Reflect: Learning to think and talk with others about an aspect of one’s work or working process, and learning to judge one’s own work and working process and the work of others.

We began yesterday with a few presentations – you are now on your own. Take the period to do your presentations with one another – One of you will keep track of comments / suggestions / another will keep track of time. This is all on you – real AP Level conversations that are FOCUSED and ATTENTIVE to the tasks at hand. GO!

Art has no boundaries except those imposed by the needs of the maker. Boundaries are a form of definition, nothing more. They are a way to create a hierarchy of concerns, interests and priorities. Boundaries change all the time. That is part of what art does. By defining an area of interest or by stating a new priority, art allows us to create new definitions of ourselves and the context in which we operate. To blur a boundary is to confuse the definition. To move a boundary is to make a new definition. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

P. 28 in the HANDBOOK too! Let’s talk about inspiration.

Wednesday and let’s wrap some stuff up!

#13 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 101 Things I Learned in Art School

Studio Art 360: A bit of still life and a bit of reflection.

Space: Using all of the knowledge you have gained from the first batch of sketches, create a drawing that emphasizes the idea of space, depth, form, perhaps perspective. Consider your understanding of Line, Shape, Form, Texture, and Color to complete this assignment.

Take a LONG HARD LOOK at your composition. What is happening with the FIGURE? The GROUND? The POSITIVE SPACE? The NEGATIVE SPACE? TOMORROW is the last day… Critique, Mount, and Hand Them In happens tomorrow – last 15 – 20 minutes is NOT DRAWING TIME. Keep that in Mind as we move through today.

#Wednesday and you are Making #Art – We Hope

Of the works, skills, information you wrote about earlier in the week (above) write out a timeline for the next 5 days that will allow you to really work out the changes, skills, mastery so that you can (by mid-week next week) turn in the changes for a stronger demonstration of the learned skills. (All late and missing work will be DUE on the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL NEXT WEEK.)

Art is the product of process. “Whether conceptual, experimental, emotional, or formal, the process you develop yields the image you produce. The materials you choose, the methods of production, and the sources of the images should all reflect the interests that command your attention. The process does not stop with each work completed. It is ongoing. The cumulative result of that process is a body of work.” Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

#Tuesday is #ArtDay

Art is the product of process. “Whether conceptual, experimental, emotional, or formal, the process you develop yields the image you produce. The materials you choose, the methods of production, and the sources of the images should all reflect the interests that command your attention. The process does not stop with each work completed.

Studio Art 360: Sketchbook Assignment and EXAMPLES

FIVE weeks into sketchbooks – what are you accomplishing with the TOOLS of drawing that you have struggled on in the previous sketches – or what are you doing better in this week’s class work that you can put into your sketchbook assignment?

Tell me about your thoughts regarding ABSTRACTIONS and UNITY as we looked at this?

Extra Credit – Watch this video and write up a one paragraph (12 sentence) statement about your response, reaction, interest, curiosity about Gary Petersen’s Artwork. Speak specifically about some of his works -mention it BY NAME and the TIME in the video I can find it. List the Why’s and Becauses regarding why you respond to it the way you do. A well written statement will be worth a week’s sketchbook as A’s – one extra set of A’s in your grades for taking the time to 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.
