#Wednesday and 2 1/2 Days to go…

#20 “Clear sight makes clear art.” Observation lies at the heart of the art process. Whether your art derives from mimicking nature or extrapolating a mental construct, your powers of observation are critical. Unless you can see what lies before you, you cannot describe it. Train yourself to eliminate preconceptions and received understandings when observing anything. Try to see what is before you, not what you think you see or want to see.  Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

#Tuesday and #TooMuchToDo in the #ArtStudio

#90 “You can condense, but you cannot simplify.” —Ann Lauterbach, personal conversation: The world is infinitely complex, and any attempt to simplify, which means the elimination of contradictory elements, will fail to capture that complexity. One can, however, attempt to compress or condense those elements into a more abbreviated or altered form. That is the role of metaphor. Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

#Thursday in the #ArtStudio – FUN!

#78 Self-portraiture has a long and storied history. It is something that most artists undertake in their training. It can yield great revelations of character and technique as in Rembrandt, van Gogh, and Bacon. It will succeed or fail based on its interest as an image. Try to judge it as an image, not as a mirror. Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

Have you  decided HOW you are going to break apart the space that you are building in the painting? Are you emphasizing the new SHAPES or are you developing the LINES that you have in the portrait?

DRAWING: Fauvists and YOU!

Take a look at your previous week’s works – where did you struggle the most with the idea of the portrait? Where did you succeed the most? How do you use the ideas of chiaroscuro and color to better define the ideas of form (in the face especially)?

What was the most challenging part for you to draw that you LEARNED the most from? Why was this most difficult way to go and how do you see the LEARNING? What is most important about drawing when it comes to observation?

What strengths did you develop in your drawing today? What three things do you look at with your drawing and say – “Hey… that’s not so bad!” 

REMEMBER -ASSIGNMENT FOR FRIDAY! THAT’S THE DUE DATE! ON YOUR OWN! NO QUESTIONS ASKED! You will have the 2 questions about your AP Concentration written – AND PROOFED by a classmate – and then pasted into the CONCENTRATION Portion of your pages. ALSO – You will have a GALLERY of 6 images FROM YOUR CONCENTRATION ITSELF uploaded to the CONCENTRATION PAGE. As a BONUS – you will have up to 6 and no fewer than 3 BREADTH works on your breadth page… I might be making some changes to these pages as we move along so… be prepared to LISTEN CAREFULLY and FOLLOW MY INSTRUCTIONS – I am hoping to streamline the process.
