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?

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.

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.

NOT Kandinsky but Klee – What was about this work that Hitler and the Nazi’s were so afraid of? 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

Goals:

  1. What does your Kandinsky inspired 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?

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

Shane Koyczan – TED Talk “To This Day”... for the Bullied and Beautiful… “If you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself, get a better mirror, look a little closer, stare a little longer, because there’s something inside you that make you keep trying despite everyone who told you to quit.”

TED Talks are GREAT INSPIRATIONAL TALKS that can add a great deal to your day.

Collaboration and Sketchbooks – THIS WEEK we will be having a 5 minute conversation about the collaborative PEER / SELF Evaluation regarding your sketchbooks for the week. 10 minute before class ends, we will pair up with someone NEW and Self / Peer evaluate – and then hand them in!

  • What is the benefit of sharing your sketchbook with your classmate?
  • How can you learn to speak about your own sketches and ideas?
  • How can you share your ideas with others?

Art Foundations 2D: Challenge with Staircases. You thought ROOFS were hard? HA! Wait until you try stairs.

How about this for 2 point perspective? Can you imagine drawing stairs like this? Learn the basics and you can draw anything!

GOALS:

  1. 1.4 create, and solve 2 Point Perspective STAIRS using 1.4.1 analysis (and a friend).

Review with neighbors the RULES of THUMB and discuss the Differences in one and two point perspective. What was the most challenging part of the stairs? What did you find similar in the process of drawing stairs that you have learned in drawing other objects in 2 point perspective?

~~~

Drawing: We critiqued yesterday – what did you take away from the process? What do you remember as being impressive or successful about the work you saw from others? How can you use some of the same ideas that your classmates have expressed?

This IS a drawing – YES it is! I am not kidding. What does it do that your’s doesn’t? What does it do that your drawing does?

GOALS:

  1. 2.2 Evaluate the effectiveness of your artwork (What is working? What needs working on?)
  2. 2.3 create artworks that solve visual challenges (How are you approaching the solution to the crinkled paper?)

Pair / Share – self – evaluation of the day – back of the goal sheet. Can you begin to see / hear a story in the work?  What do you think the character in your drawing might be up to with that piece of paper? Write down your thoughts in today’s Goals Page –  Journal Section.

~~~

AP Studio Art: Continue to work on the HUGE body of work that you are developing. This is great. I am REALLY happy to see you challenging yourselves. Keep it up! No excuses though – work hard.

Brian – This one is for you… you get a lot of stuff today. Wow, lucky Brian. Romare Bearden created this collage based on Homer’s fictional epic stories. What can you take away from his work that may help you maneuver down your own path of using allusion in your artwork? Hmmmm?

GOALS:

  1.  2.2 PEER-evaluate the effectiveness of artworks
  2. 2.3 create artworks that solve visual challenges

With 5 minutes left… what are you needing to do this weekend. Write down what you need to accomplish over the two days. How much art do you need to take home? Do we have a sketchbook assignment for next week?
