  • This has been a good week of work. We started with drawing out our plants, cutting into our linoleum, and resolving them for printing. We have also worked with creating successful slabs by rolling them out for today. Finally, today we took all of that information and put it all together successfully and you’ve resolved your boxes. What are three things about this process that you initially struggled with but in the end found a sense of success, accomplishment with? Write it out and then share it with your neighbor. Have a great weekend!

Paul Klee – http://totallyhistory.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/senecio-1922-paul-klee.jpg

#28: An idea is only as good as its execution. It is important that you master your medium. Poorly made work will either ruin a good idea or make the lamentable execution itself the subject. Overly finessed technique can mask a lack of content or can smother an image. At the same time, roughness and imprecision has its place in rendering. One can only gauge the need to throw technique away if one has first achieved the mastery of it. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

IF YOU ARE MIISSING WORK! This is a GENTLE REMINDER to GET YOUR WORK COMPLETED by WEDNESDAY for a GRADE IN THE FIRST QUARTER! If it is not IN BY 3:00 Wednesday – it is a ZERO in the GRADEBOOK!

Full Moon Trophies are DONE and ready to be WON!

Thank  you Brett Roberts (and myself – Brett had the hard part… I had the tedious part) for creating the vessels / trophies that will be given out to the winners of tomorrow night’s FULL MOON FOUR MILER! I will be unable to attend, but the race should be a great one nonetheless. All the best to the racers, the organizers, and the fans. Be aware of the NEW starting spot at St. Thomas Aquinas in Waterford – thanks to all the construction. The monies made from the trophies go to the Waterford Union High School Art Fund which gives students scholarships to attend art school, aids in young artists attending field trips, brings artists and other art world speakers and demonstrators to the classroom, and helps fund other arts projects that might not be covered by other funding. Run well runners! Now… off for my 12 miler I’ll miss tomorrow.
