Goals:

  • 2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.
  • Most young artists work with their FIRST idea and that’s it. What might the benefit be to begin with MORE ideas? When you sketch in your binders / homework… where do you mostly get your ideas from?  How do you define OBSERVATION?

Reflection: As you drew today, how have you begun to break the shapes and forms down into more bite sized, more manageable pieces? Do you need to LIGHTEN UP your initial drawing? Do you need to get the WHOLE COMPOSITION figured in first? Are you really OBSERVING?

Reflection: Turn to the second set of pages in your rubric packet and get together with a friend / fellow artist and consider this a PRE-mid critique (sort of) and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the work you have in front of you. In the space provided in the RUBRIC write out your thoughts about the good, the bad, and the ugly WITH EXPLANATION. Are you STRONG, GOOD, BASIC, WEAK, or POOR – WHY? Execution, Composition, and Character – all
