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

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.

#Friday and you leave at #Noon! WooHoo for You! End of #1stQuarter in the #ArtStudio

#28: An idea is only as good as its execution. It is important that you master your medium. Poorly made work will either ruin a good idea or make the lamentable execution itself the subject. Overly finessed technique can mask a lack of content or can smother an image. At the same time, roughness and imprecision has its place in rendering. One can only gauge the need to throw technique away if one has first achieved the mastery of it. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

How would you use sentences to DESCRIBE how you are using those elements to create a successful composition? WHY does that work for you?  SECONDLY – REFLECT on your thoughts from yesterday about WHY you took  / WHAT you were hoping to learn from this course.
