Review with neighbors the relationships of the colors on the color wheel? When you look in your closet… what COLORS do you think you have the most of hanging? Why do you think that you have more of that color than others? Assignment – FOR FRIDAY REPEAT THE ASSIGNMENT from above… Something that is of interest to you.

GREAT use of COLLAGE to design a color wheel. I’ve got a feeling we will do the same at the end of the Color Unit! https://korbartwuhs.files.wordpress.com/2014/10/a4228-dsc01433.jpg

Painting – Color Schemes and the RESOLUTION of the ABSTRACT Compostion

Are you able to see any TREE or Landscape in this work? I believe that MODRIAN was still referencing the REAL to come up with the ABSTRACT. http://www.theartstory.org/

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?

What color scheme have you begun to think about? Why? how does it DESCRIBE YOUR feelings toward the SIMPLIFICATION of the SPACE / SURROUNDINGS?

AP Studio Art – Level 6 Drawing – Are you UP TO IT?

Goals:

  • 3.1Ad: Reflect on, re-engage, revise, and refine works of art or design considering relevant traditional and contemporary criteria as well as personal artistic vision.
  • Positive and Negative Space. Line Quality. Shape and Form. Unity. Emphasis. What are the ELEMENTS / PRINCIPLES that you are seeing develop in the work? What are the Conceptual ideas about the use of objects to create an intriguing work?

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?

 

#Friday already? Well… not really, but #CloseEnough!

Studio Art 360 – FINISH THE DRAWINGS – Mount them to Mats – Exhibit your work!

Now that you have a good understanding of drawing from OBSERVATION… How can you carry that FURTHER into the idea of OTHER objects and Still Life Paintings? Janet Fish has spent a career on that VERY IDEA! http://artandperception.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/12/fwf1.jpg

GOALS:

  • G: 4.1P: Analyze, select, and curate artifacts and/or artworks for presentation and preservation.

“Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.” — Voltaire

~~~

Click on the “head” to see a video on how Chuck Close paints with a grid.

GOALS:

  1. Describe the creation of images and explain why they are of value.
  2. Work on Mathematical Ratios and Transferring images.

What COLOR SCHEMES are you struggling with understanding? Go through EACH of the color schemes with your neighbor and explain each one to one another. In your GOALS PAGES COMMENTS – write down your most challenging understanding of color schemes.

~~~

DRAWING: We are working with proportions and getting the drawing “picture plane” onto the photograph. Let’s get the drawing CAREFULLY up to the drawing paper. This paper is NOT CHEAP – it is a one sheet rule.

Henri Matisse’s painting of Andre Derain – I think they knew one another!

GOLAS:

  1. 3.1 reflect on how art differs and describe how it relates to history and cultures
  2. 4.1 recognize differences in historical and cultural contexts of art

What part of the math was a challenge to you? How well were you able to read the ruler and figure out how to make a QUALITY picture plane? As you draw this up, make sure that you are making references to the RELATIONSHIPS of COMPOSITIONAL ELEMENTS. We are looking for good to great – NOT PERFECT.

~~~

AP Studio Art: Chapters in the book – Paragraph 1 Chapter 1 and Chapter 2… Sit and Enjoy!

What’s your chapter? We are going to READ and MAKE ART and EDUCATE… YOU WILL TEACH!

GOALS:

  1. Work on finishing up presentation of portfolios and uploads.
  2. 2.6 create multiple solutions to visual challenges of Art and Fear that show understanding in relationships between composition and meaning of artwork.

What did you get done today? What have you read from the book?

Share image with your classmate and explain the process of measuring and transferring images.

~~~
