Yes – if you did the assignment and got your research in. In your handbook – Week 15 – WHAT IS THE CENTRAL IDEA BEHIND YOUR FINAL WORK OF ART? How are you utilizing at least 3 skills that you have developed over the course of the semester? Please write this out completely and thoughtfully. If I were to come up to you and ask, what would you say?

  • Using the PLANTS and the image by Jim Dine that I have shown you (AND THE BOOK), what ideas FIRST COME TO YOUR MIND when told you are going to be working on a PLANT BASED drawing and then a PRINT? Write out your FIRST THOUGHTS. We are going to be dealing with the idea of a PRINT from a drawing… the drawing will be one work, the print will be a second work that you can then go back into and work.
  • This is coming up next:
    • Jim Dine and Plants slide show – HERE.
    • Previous Artworks – HERE.
    • Jim Dine Self-Portrait on the Wall VIDEO – HERE.

  • As we worked with the skeleton this week… what have you learned from this series for drawings? What struggles are you working through? Next week we focus in on a portion of the skeleton on a large sheet of paper and work on an isolation drawing of the skeleton.

#WelcomeBack from #SpringBreak! Good #vacation? I hope so.

  • With all the new glass now in the cabinet, it is time to really look at the deadlines. This second panel deadline will be WEDNESDAY and we group critique on Thursday. Panels will be cleaned, photographed, installed in the gallery, and grades uploaded on Friday.
  • Today we are doing a “close to final” group critique. Your final self assessment rubric will be filled out later this week. Your written comments on the rubric will be actionable items. Not… “I like x,y, or z in your work.” But rather “there are issues with the gaps in the frames and you could fix that by doing this…”

BY THE WAY: everything-stained-glass.com is a good site for your own personal research.

CIaD: Handbook Covers. Lots of instructions and rules.

  • 2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.
  • 2.2Ac: Demonstrate awareness of ethical implications of making and distributing creative work.

  • This week is YOU WORKING and we have a MIDCRIT coming up FAST. Be prepared to talk and explain your plans to a small group of NON NEIGHBOR Studiomates. This is YOUR time to shine and get feedback and GIVE feedback. Our Midcrit is TUESDAY – so let’s get some GOOD solid design done / worked on MONDAY and be ready to roll TUESDAY for conversation.

Drawing: Nests and Drawing

  • 7.2Ac: Evaluate the effectiveness of an image or images to influence ideas, feelings, and behaviors of specific audiences.
  • 2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.
  • STILL LIFE in FRONT of you… well… the beginnings of a still life that is. Today we SIMPLY sit and sketch the nests in front of us. Take your time and LOOK CAREFULLY at the lines, the marks, the ways in which you can draw. From the first two days of drawing we will begin the still life based on these natural works of engineering.
  • What challenged you with the still life ideas today? What ELEMENTS did you focus on? What Principles (movement? balance? repetition?) did you use? Are you thinking COMPOSITIONALLY?

AP Studio Art: Concentration / Crit – Jim Dine Plants and Flowers – PRINTS to be completed in the end.

  • 1.1Ac: Individually or collaboratively formulate new creative problems based on student’s existing artwork
  • 9.1Ad: Construct evaluations of a work of art or collection of works based on differing sets of criteria.
  • Artwork out and in front of us all. We are CRITIQUING TODAY. If you are not done – it is a ZERO and you fail the final 3 works in the concentration. Fair? Yes. Empty threat? I hope not.
