“Advice about your paintings is difficult. As I said before, I cannot interest myself in whether they will pass juries or not. More paintings have been spoiled during the process of their making, through such considerations, than the judgements of juries are worth.” Robert Henri

Studio Art 360: Sketchbook WEDNESDAY!

2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan.

Open your sketchbook – use a ruler (or not) and demonstrate your understanding of using a VANISHING POINT, HORIZON LINE, and SHAPES to create a sense of SPACE – GO! N: Sketchbook weekly drawings – PERSPECTIVE.

TODAY’S ASSIGNMENT – Shapes: Let’s consider how we can use SHAPE to help define the idea of FORM and SPACE. Following along – let’s start to talk about 1 Point Perspective and then REALLY quickly move into the ideas of 2 Point Perspective. Boxes, windows, doors, roofs… what else can you draw using perspective.

Studio Art 360: Bas Relief and Swapping Sketchbook Tuesday this week

1.2P: Shape an artistic investigation of an aspect of present-day life using a contemporary practice of art or design.

What do you feel you need to do in order to be focused and intentional in the work you are creating? One aspect of this work is to know that the marks you are making are permanent – cannot be taken out – one and done. How do you work with the mistakes that you might make?
