Studio Art 360 – Color Schemes and POP Art

Mark Rothko in the STUDIO. What a GREAT BIG CANVAS! http://cloud.lomography.com/576/435/8b/70e4bf5f5f752f84ecd8eae677822dd43e790c.jpg

Goals:

  • G: 1.1P: Use multiple approaches to begin creative endeavors.
  • How do you feel using MULTIPLE APPROACHES to the creative process helped you or challenged you in coming up with your compositions?

Do you feel going through a PROCESS is a STRONG way to begin an artwork (or anything else) or  simply a waste of time – you have a “just do it” sort of approach. Explain your answer. 

Painting – CANVAS CONSTRUCTION! Color Schemes and the RESOLUTION of the ABSTRACT Composition!

Here we are DRAWING with INK on a LARGE SHEET OF PAPER – Thanks Brice Marden! ABSTRACTION! http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/81CIvE3XoYL._SL1500_.jpg

Goals:

  •  2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.
  • Consider the layering and transparency of the images / colors… what does this visually do for you, the painter? What does it do visually for the audience?

As you look back on the construction of the canvas, what are especially happy about as you built your own?

Success! It is about more than the money, more than the recognition… it is a deeper meaning than the external… it is inside you to reach your true potential!

“Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it’s only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.”

— President Barack Obama
