Wednesday – Let’s See if #Mr.Korb can be here for the day. What are the odds?

Art is the Product of Process: Art is the product of process: Whether conceptual, experimental, emotional, or formal, the process you develop yields the image you produce. The materials you choose, the methods of production, and the sources of the images should all reflect the interests that command your attention. The process does not stop with each work completed. It is ongoing. The cumulative result of that process is a body of work. 101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White


Ouch. Be Careful – I was and this can still happen…

Stained Glass: Let’s Get Ourselves Back to Center…

10.1Ac: Utilize inquiry methods of observation, research, and experimentation to explore unfamiliar subjects through art-making.

What went WELL yesterday as you essentially began the process of the pattern making? Name three things about the hour that were GOOD for the ARTMAKING. Let’s learn to FOIL the Glass Today!

Looking at the pattern, are you seeing any areas that you feel will cause you trouble in the process?

CIaD: How’s Illustrator Going? Logo Ideas? What’s the Challenge?

7.1Ac: Recognize and describe personal aesthetic and empathetic responses to the natural world and constructed environments.

What do you need to do in order to make this logo design work in 3 ways? Letters Only, Words Only, an the COMBINATION MARK (and also the SYMBOL / ICON – 4 ways I guess. What will you do to be ready to combine it with a partner in the process? How can you SHARE this so we can make the image 4 up on a page?

Tomorrow you are teaming up to 1) Resolve the IMAGE and 2) COMBINE the 4 images onto ONE 11” x 8.5” page so we can print FRIDAY and TRANSFER. FUN!

Drawing: Landscape – I don’t think you started CHARCOAL yet

2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.

What strengths are you needing to continue to work on? Is it a technique? Is it a studio habit?

AP Studio Art: Crit? Maybe the Concentration

4.2Ad: Critique, justify, and present choices in the process of analyzing, selecting, curating, and presenting artwork for a specific exhibit or event.

What do you have to say about the work in front of you? How are you going to look at the experience and learn from it? What have you done to PUSH yourself in the process of making your art stronger, more successful? A LEVEL 6?

We are beginning our CONCENTRATION tomorrow – 5 weeks off. What have you gained from taking a HUGE BREAK from the LARGE BODY of work? What have you lost?

Adv. Drawing: Still Life – Coming to an end SOON!

2.1Ad: Experiment, plan, and make multiple works of art and design that explore a personally meaningful theme, idea, or concept.

Talk to your neighbor / partner about the potential meaning behind your work. What SKILLS are you hoping to develop in this drawing? What types of bags are you hoping to bring in and use to communicate a message through this work with?

#Thursday – SO SOON!

Learn To Draw: “Drawing is more than a tool for rendering and capturing likenesses. It is a language, with its own syntax, grammar, and urgency. Learning to draw is about learning to see. In this way, it is a metaphor for all art activity. Whatever its form, drawing transforms perception and thought into image and teaches us how to think with our eyes.”

Ease of cutting? Challenges of cutting? Planning of the process is REALLY important – make sure you are thinking things through. Are you able to make strong cuts and easy breaks with the tools?

CIaD: Letters and Logos

2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.

Working on paper is different than working on the computer. Using a collection of FONTS that you can choose (we will look at these in the Adobe Illustrator Font Collection) you will find a wide variety of fonts that you enjoy and explore many different way of joining letters into positive and negative shapes (as well as adding a geometric or organic shape or two) in creating a Logo Design  for yourself” This will take some time – be ready to SKETCH and EXPLORE ideas.

Adv. Drawing: Still Life

4.2Ad: Critique, justify, and present choices in the process of analyzing, selecting, curating, and presenting artwork for a specific exhibit or event.

Turn to the second set of pages in your rubric packet and get together with a friend – consider this a mod 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 3.


If you haven’t filled this out – make sure to do so by the end of the week:
