  • 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!

 

#Quarter2 – #ArtWork in the #ArtStudio by #Artists – That’s you!

Art has no boundaries except those imposed by the needs of the maker. Boundaries are a form of definition, nothing more. They are a way to create a hierarchy of concerns, interests and priorities. Boundaries change all the time. That is part of what art does. By defining an area of interest or by stating a new priority, art allows us to create new definitions of ourselves and the context in which we operate. To blur a boundary is to confuse the definition. To move a boundary is to make a new definition. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

#Monday and we are entering a NEW STAGE of the game called #Art!

Some of you had some challenges this past quarter in your art classes – some of you soared. If sketches held you back – think about what your new plan of action needs to be. If you had no issues with the practice of sketches – then no worries – your practice is strong because you know that the art requires practice. A new beginning for all – and new seating charts – WEEKLY – YEP!

#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
