#Tuesday – Let’s #Reconnect in the #Studio

Learn To Draw: “Drawing is more than a tool for rendering and capturing likenesses. It is a language, with its own syntax, grammar, and urgency. Learning to draw is about learning to see. In this way, it is a metaphor for all art activity. Whatever its form, drawing transforms perception and thought into image and teaches us how to think with our eyes.”

Drawing: Thumbnails and Composition!

Thumbnails and Drawing – What’s interesting to you? https://korbartwuhs.files.wordpress.com/2016/01/6a64c-esplin1.jpg

Goals:

  • 2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.
  • Most young artists work with their FIRST idea and that’s it. What might the benefit be to begin with MORE ideas? When you sketch in your binders / homework… where do you mostly get your ideas from?  How do you define OBSERVATION?

Reflection: As you drew today, how have you begun to break the shapes and forms down into more bite sized, more manageable pieces? Do you need to LIGHTEN UP your initial drawing? Do you need to get the WHOLE COMPOSITION figured in first? Are you really OBSERVING?

Studio Art 360: VALUE SCALES!

HOPE – How does Indiana use the same idea with different words? http://media.trb.com/media/photo/2011-11/159353720-03073954.jpg

Goals:

  • 2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan.
  • What did you do successfully yesterday with VALUES that you can continue with today? What is it you need to erase, change, resolve to make the drawing today even more successful.

Reflection: What is one thing you are putting into your drawing of the 3D Forms and VALUE in the worksheets that you demonstrated and / or learned about in your Artist Trading Cards from last week? Make sure you are really need to be aware of the Elements and Principles as you are making art.

AP Studio Art: CRIT TODAY! 

How’s the critique Jerry? https://abiggerworldyet.files.wordpress.com/2010/07/20100610_art_560x375.jpg

Advanced Drawing: Fast Food Nation.

Janet Fish, Beer and Brandy Glasses, http://images.dcmooregallery.com/www_dcmooregallery_com/Beer_and_Brandy_Glasses_03578.jpg

Goals:

  • 4.2Ad: Critique, justify, and present choices in the process of analyzing, selecting, curating, and presenting artwork for a specific exhibit or event.
  • Step back from your drawing and write out two things you see that are in need of attention FIRST! WRITE them down and then write down the WHY they need attention.

Reflection: Turn to the second set of pages in your rubric packet and get together with a friend / fellow artist and consider this a PRE-mid critique (sort of) and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the work you have in front of you. In the space provided in the RUBRIC write out your thoughts about the good, the bad, and the ugly WITH EXPLANATION. Are you STRONG, GOOD, BASIC, WEAK, or POOR – WHY? Execution, Composition, and Character – all

Art Foundations: Negative Space Drawing – let’s add color / value!

Positive and Negative space. Let’s do this with WATERCOLORS first… then Sharpie to finish the branches. LET THE PAINT DRY FIRST. 1.bp.blogspot.com

GOALS:

  1. 1.4 create, define, and solve visual challenges using 1.4.1 analysis (breaking up the artwork / subject matter to basic elements)

What about the use of space did you still have questions about. You and your classmate need to get together and review the first two sections of the chapter and come up with a CHALLENGING QUESTION from the text. I will collect the questions for future use…

~~~

Advanced Drawing: Still life drawings – FOCUS ON THE TRANSPARENCY, LIGHT BENDING, and REFLECTION

http://www.thirstyreader.com – What is the transparent aspect to this painting? How did Janet Fish REALLY show the transparency and bending of the light?

GOALS

  1. 2.6 Work on creating multiple solutions to solve visual challenges.

What is it about the transparent glass that makes this a challenging or easy subject matter to work with? Share your preliminary work with your neighbor – write the thoughts down and THEN… let’s get together and talk about the discoveries you have made.

~~~

AP Studio Art: Time to consider the idea of your Concentration.

  1. Link to examples HERE
  2. Link to Acorn Book HERE
  3. ANSWER THIS QUESTION: Clearly and simply state the central idea of your concentration .
Concentration time… Ok… maybe not this kind of concentration. We ARE going to get into the ideas of concentration however. http://www.pathways-to-peak-experience.com

GOALS:

  1. 1.4 create and define, visual challenges (your concentrations)  using 1.4.1 analysis (breaking up the artwork / subject matter to basic elements).

What have you narrowed some ideas down to? How have you discovered NEW ideas regarding what you MIGHT want to be dealing with in your concentration? What is the artistic stuff that you might be exploring (elements and principles? Mark making techniques? Media you might be exploring?) Share your thoughts about the 2 questions that we will be visiting and revisiting throughout the semester. 

What can you do with the skills you have? Let’s see you DO IT!

Art Foundations: DRAW the NEGATIVE SPACE you see. Harder than you think.

DRAW THE NEGATIVE SPACE – NOT the positive space… Do you think you can handle it? http://fc08deviantart.net

GOALS:

  1. 1.4 create, define, and solve visual challenges using 1.4.1 analysis (breaking up the artwork / subject matter to basic elements)

What did you find as the most difficult aspect of the creation of the drawing? What was the hardest? What was the easiest? Are you able to see the negative space in the 1 – drawing, 2 – actual object?

~~~

Advanced Drawing: Transparent Objects and Drawing what we see.

Janet Fish is a GREAT PLACE TO START. Check out the transparency and how the light bends and twists… OBSERVATION! http://www.askart.com

GOALS:

  1. 2.6 Work on creating multiple solutions to solve visual challenges.
  2. 3.1 reflect on how art differs and describe how it relates to history and cultures (how do the objects you are choosing relate to your life and culture? How can reflection and transparency work for you?)

What are you drawn to? What is successful in your composition? What is it about the transparent glass that makes this a challenging or easy subject matter to work with? Share your preliminary work with your neighbor – write the thoughts down.

~~~

AP Studio Art: Research and Investigate the artists you are interested in. Go to the Library, Get an Art History Book. Begin with the letter A.

This is where to start. Not in what you already know. Look through the images from the past to see where the images of NOW are from. http://www.themasterpiececards.com

GOALS:

  1. 5.1 identify the rationale behind making art.
  2. 4.4 evaluate and interpret art for relationships in 4.4.1 form 4.4.2 context

What research and new discoveries in art history have you accomplished today? What is the greatest surprise you have found today?  What are your INITIAL THOUGHTS about the idea of a concentration?

How can we use the NEGATIVE to make the POSITIVE work better?

And here I am HANG GLIDING… I love to use my abilities to really have fun in life. http://www.seekextreme.com

“The question for each man is not what he would do if he had the means, time, influence and educational advantages, but what he will do with the things he has.” — Frank Hamilton

AP Studio Art: RESEARCH and begin the ideas for your CONCENTRATION

Vincent Van Gogh spent time LOOKING at and THINKING about the works that he focused his life on… what are you going to do to do the same? http://www.vggallery.com

GOALS:

  1. Research and Information Fluency – Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information.
  2. Critical Thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making – Students use critical thinking skills to plan and conduct research, manage projects, solve problems, and make informed decisions using appropriate digital tools and resources.

Look over and SHARE your research about the artist that you have begun looking at and also share a bit about what your initial thoughts are regarding the idea of having a concentration.
