#Humpday in the #ArtStudio – #Critiques and #Deadlines are Here

#17 Drawing is About Mark Making “Every mark has a distinct character and quality.Every mark is a signature. Variations in pressure and weight is the visual equivalent of intonation. Marks, or lines, of consistent weight or thickness surrounding a figure or object will flatten the image. Tapering or breaking a line in a curve can connote a highlight or make the curve flow. Also, a tentative line will read as such. Give every mark or line authority and make sure it serves a purpose. Try to use only the marks you need.” 101 Things Learned in Art School, Kit White, 2011, MIT Press

“Advice about your paintings is difficult.  As I said before, I cannot interest myself in whether they will pass juries or not. More paintings have been spoiled during the process of their making, through such considerations, than the judgements of juries are worth.” – Robert Henri – Artist / Art Teacher


Welcome to Homecoming Week. I will be donning my costumes for the week – will you? Lots of artwork coming due this and next week. Let’s keep up the hard work and make ourselves proud. You guys have worked hard and are learning the process behind making art. Keep working! – Mr. Korb

#Thursday. One More day and then #Weekend #StudioTime

“Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightening to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself.” Chuck Close


Thursday is here and the work is coming along. I have strong hopes that as the year progresses you are able to see the work you are creating as an important part of all that you do. Some of you, making art is essential to your day, for some of you it is an hour in the day. Let’s make it worth your while and essential to your day! Mr. Korb

What is ONE THING you really want to explain about the work you have created regarding the Art and Fear Chapter you chose. Write this out so you have a starting place to talk when you explain your work.

What 2 things are you most pleased with regarding the works you see / made out Art and Fear? ASSIGNMENT – Symbolism and BREADTH – You need to bring in a couple of still life objects that can easily be held in your hand (which will be photographed and then printed) to practice the ideas of observation. What have you got that you can bring in that helps to really tell about yourself, your interests, your passions? The practice of the still life – observation – is a skill that readers (AP and the rest of the art viewing world) recognize as important to the building of the skills of an artist. How can you demonstrate those skills? Many drawings? One Drawing? How can you use the time to really build your BREADTH?
