“No matter how many goals you have achieved, you must set your sights on a higher one.”

– Jessica Savitch


NPR: How to do EVERYTHING… Podcast – Donkey Kong, McMuggets, the Bloomberg, Drawing… Listen Here (Drawing starts about 1/5 of the way in).


Art Foundatrions 2D: Continue with the process of the 2 point perspective City / Neighborhood Drawings. We have begun the streets and the sidewalks, some have begin the first few buildings… Think about the 6 rules of thumb that we need to know. Discuss the use of chiaroscuro and your drawing. Finish lesson 5 – Chapter 5

Reconstruction of the Temple – Pre-Renaissance

  1. 3.1 reflect on how art differs and describe how it relates to history and cultures.

Take a look at the two paintings and compare the differences in how they handled the ideas of the drawing / making of the architecture… What are 5 things that stand out to you and your neighbor that demonstrate how the Renaissance artists rediscovered the ancient understanding of linear perspective.

After many days of learning how to use the rules of Linear Perspective – what have you been able to remember? What rules stand out in your mind and what rules seem to evade you? What are the tools that you can use to practice the process? What is going to continue to hold you up?


Drawing: Figure, Paper, and Background. What are you doing that makes this work stronger than your previous still life? How have you learned to work on your work? What is something you know that you will be taking with you as you move forward in your work.

Oh boy… now we have a problem with the drawing… what are we going to do from here.


  1. 2.4 compare different points of view regarding composition and meaning in artwork.
  2. 2.2 evaluate the effectiveness of artworks

What are 4 differences (important differences – not just surface differences) that you and someone you are not as familiar with in this class have in the approach to your artwork. Look around the room and try to find someone who you feel is the polar opposite of your approach and then sit down with them and discuss the differences – write these down in the Journaling portion of your GOALS PAGE…


AP Studio Art: Continue working on the mounting of your artwork… prepare yourself for the uploading of additional images… continue to work on the editing of your statements for the upload. What sorts of challenges are you having about ANYTHING regarding the way this class is going / ending?

How did this artist use typography to create a recognizable portrait that has meaning and symbolism behind them?


  1. 2.6 create multiple solutions to visual challenges that show understanding in relationships between composition and meaning of artwork
