Wednesday and let’s wrap some stuff up!

#13 Each generation gets to reinvent art in its own image. Because art is an act of description, it is inevitable that what it describes will reflect every generation’s bias of the moment. It is not a strict reflection of a time but an interpretation rendered in a language that is always in a state of transformation. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

Studio Art 360: A bit of still life and a bit of reflection.

Space: Using all of the knowledge you have gained from the first batch of sketches, create a drawing that emphasizes the idea of space, depth, form, perhaps perspective. Consider your understanding of Line, Shape, Form, Texture, and Color to complete this assignment.

Take a LONG HARD LOOK at your composition. What is happening with the FIGURE? The GROUND? The POSITIVE SPACE? The NEGATIVE SPACE? TOMORROW is the last day… Critique, Mount, and Hand Them In happens tomorrow – last 15 – 20 minutes is NOT DRAWING TIME. Keep that in Mind as we move through today.

“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.” – Frank Korb
