#Friday #Friday #Friday – How did #Friday happen so #Fast?

“In not stating the goal to the students and wording them so they are understandable… it is like a family going on a trip with Dad in the driver’s seat and him not sharing what the destination is or how long the trip is going to take. Dad knows where he’s going, but the rest of the family has no clue.”

BTW – You can ask questions that you might not otherwise have the opportunity to in the comment section at the bottom of the daily posts. Mr. Korb will ALWAYS get a note if you do and he will answer it in a reasonable amount of time too.

STEAM Education at Waterford Union High School

In two of our art classes, we have had the great opportunity to tie it ALL(most) together. Thanks to Ms. Lynn Neuman (math) and Mrs. Nancy Smith (Science) for their ideas and feedback.

Breanna A. – Science, English, and ART!

Art Foundations – Science / Engineering / Math / English and ART. They researched (flipped classroom of my videos) 2 point perspective (houses, buildings etc…) and learned the “rules.” Then they researched Scanning Electron Microscope images, we had a conversation about the results, they documented their sites, read a bit about it and then… they had to use the rules of perspective to interpret their microscopic image into and oil pastel drawing. The link is here: http://goo.gl/uRIS37

Jessica's Bauhaus Drawing!
Jessica’s Bauhaus Drawing!

Drawing – Using the HISTORY of Germany and Russia in the early 1900’s – WWII, the students studied the times and ideas behind the work of Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky. They studied the MATH / GEOMETRY / COLOR theory behind his works and came up with their own color theory. THEN… Music was the emotional impetus for the work. They listened first to music by Kandinsky’s contemporaries and got the ideas for abstraction and geometry. From there they worked their OWN music into the art. So lets see… Music / history / math / social studies (history)… oh.. and ENGLISH – they had to write up an explanation – Artist Statement about their work. The collaborative efforts can be seen in this presentation they worked out and engineered through Google Presentation… some of it MAY still be in the works! http://goo.gl/Jz15AT

Have a GREAT WEEKEND!

Stay on TARGET. FIGURE in your SPACE and COMPOSE a good GOAL for yourself.

“No matter how many goals you have achieved, you must set your sights on a higher one.” – Jessica Savitch

Target with 4 Faces… What does the target do? What do the faces mean? 1000 Points if you let me know your thoughts… (The points are for bragging rights only). http://www.moma.org/collection_images/resized/148/w500h420/CRI_80148.jpg

Art Foundations: Last 1/2 hour to work… Are you coming in after school to pick up pastels?

What DISCOVERY have you made about the use of MICROSCOPIC IMAGES and the designing of 2 Point Perspective Artworks? http://thehomeschoolscientist.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/looking-at-hair-in-a-microscope.jpg

Goals:

  1. 4.4 evaluate and interpret your art for relationships in 4.4.1 form 4.4.2 context and 4.4.3 meanings showing understanding of the work of various art professionals* ANSWER THIS FOR YOUR GOALS? What relationships do you see between your work and the ORIGINAL Scientists vision of the microorganism?

What was the best and the worst part of the work? What are you going to take into your next major artwork that you learned from this artwork? What makes you stop and THINK about the work you have seen bu others?

Drawing: FINAL DAY! These are AWESOME – Get Ready to WRITE about the work as you make your artist statement!

What can you be thinking about as you wrap up your Kandinsky inspired work? What do you think he might have been thinking about. http://www.artesmagazine.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/12/KANDIN-PORTR2.jpg

Goals:

  1. 4.4 evaluate and interpret your art for relationships in 4.4.1 form 4.4.2 context and 4.4.3 meanings showing understanding of the work of various art professionals* – Answer this for your GOALS: What are the STRONG relationships you have with Kandinsky in his work and yours?

What did you take away from this overall DEEP and difficult project?

AP Studio Art: 1 Drawing today – 20 minute reclining figure – How about looking at a Henry Moore instead of the Mary Cassatt.

How did Henri Moore work the figures from the REAL to the SCULPTURAL? https://korbartwuhs.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/f0316-sculpturedrawings.png

Goals:

  1. 2.3 create artworks that solve visual challenges – ANSWER THIS: What has been the BIGGEST CHALLENGE you have faced with the idea / activity of the figure drawing? How will you handle 20 minutes today?

How did things go today? Look at everyones drawings and make comments about their figure drawings in their binders.

What did you hope to gain from yesterday? What do you hope to gain from today?

While in class we set goals in class based on the N.V.A.S. and the N.E.T.S… let’s take a look at our individual picture for a moment. Please think about the larger goal (NVAS) that is presented, but write out what we were hoping to gain from these experiences. It is always good to “look into the rear view mirror” to see who we were that made us who we are. Challenging to really see perhaps, but always good to think about and reflect upon.

“No matter how many goals you have achieved, you must set your sights on a higher one.” – Jessica Savitch

Go Waterford! I don’t think that was what Jasper Johns had in mind when he painted his green target. https://korbartwuhs.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/ae31e-johns_jasper_green_target_2.jpg

Art Foundations: Microscopic Images make for some HUGE Successes. Great work across the board!

What do you see? What will your audience see? http://www.rawstory.com/rs/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/shutterstock_78829726-615×345.jpg

Goals:

  1. What does your pastel drawing say about how you understand the relationships in 4.4.1 form 4.4.2 context and 4.4.3 meanings? What were YOU hoping to learn or take away from this project?

REVIEW the work you have done for today. What do you need to do for tomorrow? What do you need to expand on, tweak? Share the ideas / challenges with your neighbors.

Drawing: What does your music say to you? Perhaps revisit the song and see if it takes you where you wanted to go.

Read the attached article to see more from the Neue Gallerie in New York City – Current Exhibit – Degenerate Art. http://static.guim.co.uk/sys-images/Guardian/Pix/pictures/2014/3/13/1394725009303/Paul-Klee-1879-1940-The-A-001.jpg

How does your art compare with the work of “professionals” and how can you work to create a better understanding of your approach / intent / ideas? Please don’t think of worse than or better than, but rather compare / contrast, similar / different.

AP Studio Art: Great to be a GROUP again… Let’s draw MORE of US!

Where was Mary Cassatt FOCUSED and where did she demonstrate expression? We’re still GESTURING! http://www.ibiblio.org/wm/paint/auth/cassatt/theater.jpg

Goals:

  1. 3.2 apply our models poses, and idea of capturing the human form QUICKLY and use skill to capture that pose and form completely. What does this mean to you?

What are the strengths of the Composition? Where do you find the weaknesses in your work? How can you reflect tomorrow to change / alter  / move forward from that?

HIT YOUR TARGET – If you miss – shoot again!

What goals have you set for yourself? Are they BIG and BOLD? Are they small and subtle? Regardless as to the goals you have, make them attainable – but not too easy… you may get bored, and not too difficult… you may get frustrated. Just make them a smidge out of reach so you have to stretch!

“No matter how many goals you have achieved, you must set your sights on a higher one.” – Jessica Savitch

Jasper Johns – All sorts of approaches to his goals. http://www.christies.com/lotfinderimages/d53152/d5315228l.jpg
