AP Studio Art: Yesterday – I asked you to come up with your own GOAL. What is a GOAL that you have for the day for yourself. This is not a TASK or AGENDA item… Sit back and think about the Goals we have written for the past year. What is a GOAL that you can modify and make pertinent to your work – your progress – your desires to learn more or improve on? Write this out and make it work.

Andy Goldsworthy – Another work by him… Let’s take a look at his website!

GOALS:

  1. 3.2 apply subjects, symbols, and ideas in art and use skill to solve visual challenges
  2. What is YOUR goal? Rewrite a National Visual Arts Standard to make it particular to your work. DO IT!

So… report to Mr. Korb what your PERSONAL GOAL was for the day, what category (1 – 6 in the NVAS did it come from) and how did you modify it to make it your own?
