“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good…” Ira Glass

#Midweek #Wednesday – #Grids and #Portraits and #Canvas and #Paint

#90 “You can condense, but you cannot simplify.” —Ann Lauterbach, personal conversation: The world is infinitely complex, and any attempt to simplify, which means the elimination of contradictory elements, will fail to capture that complexity. One can, however, attempt to compress or condense those elements into a more abbreviated or altered form. That is the role of metaphor. Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

OK – SCULPTURES – TAKE THEM HOME – Sorry… Decide who wants it. Garbage (Circle File) after today.

AP STUDIO ART: Crit – Figure Drawing then the Concentration AGAIN!

 

On your GALLERY Images: “Title,” Your Name, Height” x Width”, Medium, Year. DO THIS NOW so it is EASIER in May. I am disappointed that Friday came and went and some are NOT done. Zero’s are SET, you can earn points again later…

As you look at the work in front of you, what element / principle stands out in your ARTWORK? What have you taken away from this process of OBSERVATION and REWORKING the ideas in your drawing? How can you use these ideas as you move forward in your CONCENTRATION?
