TOMORROW – Come to class with this SELFIE MADE and PRINTED!

Student Examples from LAST SEMESTER: https://goo.gl/uMSJqm

Please grab hold of a candy from the pile in the classroom. Eat the candy and then fold, crease, wrinkle the wrapper a few times and overlap a bit of it. Use a VIEWFINDER (provided) trace out the empty space on a page in your sketchbook (you’ll be drawing in that space later). Choose a PORTION of the folded candy bar image and, using the VIEWFINDERS (look at the new compositions and simplify it), and draw it out to the best of your ability (HB – Hard Pencil to start, colored pencil to finish). The ideas are all up to you. What are your thoughts about how you can draw this object?

Why do the Arts Matter?

While I could go on and on about the arts and why they matter… I will let the American for the Arts Action Fund do it in their own words. This is straight from their website: http://www.artsactionfund.org/pages/why

~~~

But first: #BeTheARTbeat on twitter and social media present a quick little video by artists from around the country (me included – see if you can find me)…  TWEET AND RT – SHARE ON FACEBOOK, WHEREVER YOU SOCIALIZE… LET’S MAKE SURE THE ARTS ARE SUPPORTED WHEN THE WE NEED THEM THE MOST!

 Simply put, the arts are essential to the proper functioning of our society.  The arts continue to demonstrate their ability to provide categorical evidence of their impact on social issues that concern virtually every facet of American society.  The arts are especially important for our children.  Students with an arts rich education:
  • Have better grade point averages
  • Score better on standardized tests in reading and math
  • Have lower dropout rates

Funding for arts education programs in schools is being cut back or eliminated.  Many arts organizations have had to make drastic reductions in hours, and offer fewer productions each season.

The work of the Arts Action Fund helps reverse these trends.  The Arts Action Fund is the only national organization that mobilizes Americans in the fight for arts funding and arts education. We’re building a nationwide army of citizen activists who will help guarantee that arts-friendly public policies are adopted at the federal, state, and local levels.  Add your voice!
