Studio Art 360: Balance and Pattern – All sorts of types

 

G: 2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan.

What kind of balance do you find you prefer? Symmetry? Approximate Symmetry? Radial? Asymmetry?

What type of balance have you chosen to use? What are three reasons you chose this direction to go with?


Painting: Portraits and OILS

3.1Ac: Engage in constructive critique with peers, then reflect on, re-engage, revise, and refine works of art and design in response to personal artistic vision.

You were asked to begin thinking about the work in front of you… What DO YOU SEE IN YOUR PAINTING? That’s it.. WHAT DO YOU SEE? Take your time… look at everything you see in the work and write down all that you see.

Let’s Chat for a moment… http://www.saic.edu/media/saic/gfx/academics/undergraduatedegrees/undergraduateexperience/painting_critique.jpg

Time to work today began with DESCRIPTION – was there anything NEW that you saw when you began writing and working today? We do not have a lot of time to work this week but… lots of time use that knowledge in your life.


Drawing: Contour and Printing

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

What struggles do you personally find in the making of a continuous line contour drawing? Two things you are challenged by – full sentences.

AP: Art and Fear

G: 1.1 Ad: Visualize and hypothesize to generate plans for ideas and directions for creating art and design that can affect social change.

Art and Fear had a lot to offer. Open the book and look through the chapters… What chapter do you feel you MIGHT relate to you the most  Based SOLELY on the title of the chapter (may not be fair)  –  and WHY?

Goals:

  • 1.2Ac: Choose from a range of materials and methods of traditional and contemporary artistic practices to plan works of art and design.
  • Does the use of LINE become the DOMINANT element in your artwork or are you seeing other elements as coming to the forefront of the composition?

After 3 days of SOLID work – After seeing a 6 (5) on the AP Rubric and reading about what it takes to “score” that high… what is ONE thing you have learned about yourself / the process / the ideas of making successful work that REVOLVE around DRAWING / 2D Design Criteria?
