Goals:

  • 4.2Ad: Critique, justify, and present choices in the process of analyzing, selecting, curating, and presenting artwork for a specific exhibit or event.
  • After our AP Test we are going to present an art exhibition in the gallery. We will mount 3 of the BEST works you have remaining. Please think about those works… which of them are you going to use to represent you?

Reflection: Are you ready for the AP Exam? We have spend the ENTIRE week – that’s onbly 5 hours – working on developing the quality, concentration, and breadth portfolio of works. NEXT WEEK – we MAKE art. Will you be ready for the AP Exam? How about OUR AP Webpage?

Advanced Drawing: Skeleton – Shared Album HERE

Hands and Feet: THIS WEEK – FOR NEXT WEEKS SKETCH – Finish ALL of your body part drawings… and then – do something ELSE with ONE of them to make it REALLY STRONG as a composition. http://corewalking.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/FITZ_december24_2011_grasping-at-straws-1024×510.jpg

Goals:

  • 2.1Ad: Experiment, plan, and make multiple works of art and design that explore a personally meaningful theme, idea, or concept.

Reflection: How will you use the knowledge of the shapes and joints to help you make the proportions CORRECT? Give some technique and ideas in your answer.
