#Computer #Tuesday in the #ArtStudio

“In not stating the goal to the students and wording them so they are understandable… it is like a family going on a trip with Dad in the driver’s seat and him not sharing what the destination is or how long the trip is going to take. Dad knows where he’s going, but the rest of the family has no clue.”

Comments from Survey: Thanks All!

  • Enjoyed your energy. All your communication with parents. I need to get my staff to do that more. I will share all your tools.
  • Putting goals out there for my students. Right now, they just have to guess… and most of them don’t try, oddly 🙂
  • I’ve enjoyed it a lot. Learned a lot. It’s been great to have some time to work and experiment with WordPress.
  • I liked that it setting up a blog is easy and free.

And Even…

  • I think you over-explained and I grew bored.
  • It seemed sort of self-promotional.

I appreciate ALL the comments. I enjoyed working with each group and learning form other experts in their own fields. Criticism in essential in the learning process and I appreciate all the work and reflections from everyone. Your thoughts about my sessions… HERE.

Kids will say the Darndest Things…

Knowing that sketchbooks and goals will ALWAYS be part of the courses, what is one suggestion that you have to offer for future classes? What are some suggestions you may have to help the class become even stronger or more fulfilling than it already is? These require explanation please.

  • “Make the goals so that everyone does them and doesn’t slack. It helps my brain learn from the beginning of class and I know it will help others.”
  • “To take the goals and understand them not just write them down.”
  • “The goals were kind of hard to understand when looking back at them. It’s easy to understand when you explain. but the way they are written down is tricky to look back at.”

Art Students say the Darndest Things…

  • What was the one thing that you feel you will be able to take into your next course or carry on into the next stage of your artistic development.
    • “When we got to work on projects. Being able to do our own things” – Art Foundations 2013
    • “paying more attention to realizing importance of art rather than what I just see.” – Art Foundations 2013
    • “I will know how to better place things out on paper. Social Skills.”– Art Foundations 2013
    • “Work Ethic” – Art Foundations 2013
    • “Do the thing even if you do not enjoy the beginning. Probably, when you are done, you’ll discover the reason of what you did it and tool for opportunities.” – Art Foundations 2013

These kids FLOORED me with their insights and thoughts about all that they learned in an Art Class… I knew it was happening… I am PROUD that they saw it in the end too.

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

~~~
Art Foundations: Grid our paper and finish our color wheels. If you are done with the color wheel and you finish the grid… make sure your sketchbook and LATE WORK are complete.

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:

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

~~~

Portrait of Henri Matisse by Andre Derain.

GOALS:

  1. 3.1 reflect on how art differs and describe how it relates to history and cultures
  2. 3.2 apply subjects, symbols, and ideas in art and use skill to solve visual challenges

What was the most challenging aspect of your drawing to get done today? How are you using OBSERVATION and COMPARISON – sighting in – to get your drawings set up correctly?

~~~

How are you filling this?

GOALS:

  1. Work on Quality Mounting of artworks.

~~~

Drawing: SnapChat… You made portraits yesterday and 2 days ago… today you are going to show me the image you would like to use and then get them printed out. We begin with pastel drawing – guided experimentation first. Photo Folder to SAVE IMAGE and ADD TO YOUR RUBRIC!

Matisse a bit toned down from yesterday… Still on the changed colors? A smidge maybe…

GOALS:

  1. (1.4.1) Know about solving visual challenges (making art) using analysis (breaking the work into its parts).

What were the challenges that you had with the guided use of the pastels? What are you a bit worried about with the upcoming project. How have you chosen to use the color printout and modify the composition?
