Bob Ross made art making look SO EASY… we know the truth – it is a lot of hard work! Get to it!

Goals:

  • Painting: What do you see about your artwork that STANDS OUT to you as needing a bit of work? Is there anything that you are immediately “bothered” by? Is there anything that stands out as “GREAT?” (2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.)
  • AP Studio Art: What 3 STRENGTHS are you carrying forward into your newest series of concentration pieces? How has your skill improved as you have gotten half-way through the school year. ( 2.2Ad: Demonstrate understanding of the importance of balancing freedom and responsibility in the use of images, materials, tools, and equipment in the creation and circulation of creative work.)

Painting: Biggest, Best parts of the oil painting process for you? Have you got something you’d lean on as a great NEW learned skill or bit of knowledge?

AP Studio Art: What are you going to be working on OVER BREAK to continue to be productive artists?

TUESDAY (yes… tomorrow over break) at MIDNIGHT CHAPTER 7 is due in Art and Fear Blog. Who’s NOT READING? I know that reading isn’t on the top of your list of things to do in this class. If you read and get the work done OVER BREAK – you will hopefully LEARN SOMETHING and demonstrate that in your posts. PARTIAL CREDIT – but some is better than none.

Thanks for the nod towards my thoughts on communicating with Parents, Students and the WORLD on Teach.Com. I appreciate the recognition.
