It’s the end of the week as we know it – and #IFeelFine

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.” Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

1.1Ac: Individually or collaboratively formulate new creative problems based on student’s existing artwork.

Finally #Friends – It is #Friday in the #Studio. Keep making #Art!

#17 Drawing is About Mark Making

“Every mark has a distinct character and quality.Every mark is a signature. Variations in pressure and weight is the visual equivalent of intonation. Marks, or lines, of consistent weight or thickness surrounding a figure or object will flatten the image. Tapering or breaking a line in a curve can connote a highlight or make the curve flow. Also, a tentative line will read as such. Give every mark or line authority and make sure it serves a purpose. Try to use only the marks you need.” 101 Things Learned in Art School, Kit White, 2011, MIT Press

Studio Art 360: Drawing and Value – How do you match up?

What was the biggest challenge you found as you began to draw your values yesterday and today?

Still Life of Dennis Mogelgaard and a focus on Value – What can WE do that will make for an interesting still life drawing? https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/15/2d/bd/152dbd9e1ced4bbccf1bb4e83805cc96.jp

What are 2 difficulties that you had in beginning your value drawings today? Remember – DRAWING IS A CHALLENGE – let it be! 

Painting: Personal Reflection and Meaning – and PAINT!

ASSIGNMENT – Due at the END of the watercolor painting assignment October 21, 2016: Artists research on ONE of the following artists for imagery, technique, approach: Winslow Homer, Charles Demuth, Thomas Eakins, Edward Hopper, Dong Kingman, Reginald Marsh, Charles Sheeler, J.M.W. Turner, Thomas Moran, Georgia O’Keefe, James Whistler, or Andrew Wyeth.

How has the gathering of images HELPED or CHALLENGED you in the creation of a composition visually and / or telling a story – about yourself?

Thomas Moran: Landscape – in Watercolor! http://www.denverartmuseum.org/sites/default/files/exhibitions/Media%20browser/hero-moran.jpg

What does your composition say about you? How might others read the images you have gathered and assembled?

http://www.denverartmuseum.org/exhibitions/thomas-moran-s-yellowstone-project-nation

Develop / collect images, consider the ideas about yourself and surroundings. This is going to be a SELF-PORTRAIT of sorts – no that it is going to look like you but rather… the objects and images, surroundings, ideas will be about you.

Drawing: Pencils and Paper and NESTS!

How is the work developing? REMEMBER – Wednesday of NEXT WEEK as a MID-CRIT!

 With this OUT OF THE BOX (out of the doors) assignment… What are two struggles are you facing and how do you envision yourself getting out from under the challenges?

 

What does PAINTING offer you? Let’s ask David Hockney!

“We’ve gotten to the point where we think the camera can capture anything at all…Well, it can’t really. The camera can’t compete with painting at all. The paintings are much more vivid about the place than photographs are.” – David Hockney,

Modern Painters, “David Hockney, on his latest inspiration – Yorkshire, Into the Woods,” by: Marina Cashdan, April 2010, p. 66.

David Hockney. What can his paintings do that a photography cannot? What can Photography do that painting cannot? http://www.glenwoodnyc.com/manhattan-living/wp-content/uploads/resource/dh-hockney-pace-wildenstein.jpg

What is the most challenging aspect of the project you experienced today? Do you feel you have represented yourself? Do you feel you have represented your “inner-self” “soul” “impression of you?” Why or why not?
