Reflection: What is the progress of the drawing thus far? What is your neighbor doing well? What is your neighbor not doing successfully? Share your thoughts with your neighbors.

How are you looking at the difference between the HARD WORK you are using versus the “talent” that so many others think is there? http://joel.franusic.com/assets/img/art-and-fear-page-26.jpg


  • 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?

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


  • 2.1Ad: Experiment, plan, and make multiple works of art and design that explore a personally meaningful theme, idea, or concept.
  • Hands and feet are challenging – what is going to be challenging about these aspects to make them believable – one doesn’t want to draw mittens and socks in the place of hands and feet.

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.
