#OpenStudio in the #ArtRoom over #Break

I will be in the ART ROOM at school on MONDAY, December 28 and WEDNESDAY, December 30 from 9:00am – Noon. If you are interested in some OPEN STUDIO TIME or have questions that need answering, then is a good time.

Studio Art 360:

EXAMPLES from LAST YEAR!

  • CANVAS was handed out in class and transferring of images should be accomplished for class on January 4. We’ve gone through this in class and they should have the concept figured out. Any missing sketchbooks NEED to be completed by Wednesday, January 6.

VISUAL EXAMPLE of SETTING UP YOUR IMAGE.

AP Studio Art:

3 Concentration WORKS DUE after Break. Three more ONE WEEK after break.

Your Songs of Sanctuary Website STATEMENTS are WAY PAST DUE.

  • We went over the editing of images for the online portfolio in class and I have asked them to get a strong start on the photography and editing of the images over break.
  • As I said in class, I would rather not take a week away from making art in the computer lab when this is work they can accomplish on their own outside of class. Adobe Photoshop is NOT REQUIRED to edit the images for the online portfolio. I demonstrated using a Google App through Google Drive (Pixlr Editor) and the instructions are VERY MUCH THE SAME as if they were using Photoshop: instructions HERE: https://goo.gl/Upkwca
  • In addition to the online editing, I have asked them to upload images to their WEB Pages on the web: https://korbapartwuhs.wordpress.com/

Drawing AND Painting:

  • Both classes have work that they are either done with,finishing up over break, or shortly after break. I have photographed the works in progress and they can be found below. This critique will require some time (I would invest about an hour in the first writing and then whatever it takes to revise and edit). I would rather them get a start on it now than try to cram it in during the last few days of the semester (this is half of the final exam).

Reflection / Evaluation:  What are the three types of colors on the color wheel? What can you NOT mix? How do you mix Orange, etc…

AP Studio Art: TALKING ART!

Cameron? What do YOU see in the work?  http://www.adrianartblog.com/uploads/2/1/7/6/21769396/2807198.jpg?389

Graffiti Artist KLASS in front of his work at the Longwood Art Gallery https://bronxbohemian.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/img_1897.jpg

  • Now that you have your artwork out in front of you… What is a STRENGTH in the visual image that you can build off of?

#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.
