#FourMoreDays to #BREAK

#20 “Clear sight makes clear art.” Observation lies at the heart of the art process. Whether your art derives from mimicking nature or extrapolating a mental construct, your powers of observation are critical. Unless you can see what lies before you, you cannot describe it. Train yourself to eliminate preconceptions and received understandings when observing anything. Try to see what is before you, not what you think you see or want to see.  Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School\

#Fauvism and #HipHop #Graffiti

Happy Sunday Morning! You get a couple of EXTRAS this weekend with the AP and Advanced Drawing of yesterday and the Drawing of today. Drawing students require a bit of direction with a bit of freedom and a lot of challenge. The ideas that support these works lie around the ideas of realism in the proportions of the face but the WILD BEAST of the color. WILD BEAST also comes into play in the skills and meaning behind the works of graffiti artists. While I do not propose nor support the ideas of defacing the property of others (which was of hot discussion in the classroom) the imagery and meaning behind the work is wonderful. Please enjoy the imagery and see if you can flush out the meanings behind the work.
