Expression Plant

Goals:

  • 10.1Ad: Synthesize knowledge of social, cultural, historical, and personal life with art-making approaches to create meaningful works of art or design.
  • Not knowing what your thoughts are about plants / flowers, know that they have been and will be a large and important image in art. Working to make sure you have a REAL connection with the images you make, what are your personal connections to the art or the making of the art?

What materials have you used today? What were the focal points of the drawings for the day. What are you enjoying / hating about the ideas of drawing based on observation?

“We’ve gotten to the point where we think the camera can capture anything at all.” “Well, it can’t really. The camera can’t compete with painting at all. The paintings are much more vivid about the place than photographs are.” – David Hockney, “Modern Painters, “

David Hockney, on his latest inspiration – Yorkshire, Into the Woods,” by: Marina Cashdan, April 2010, p. 66.

Not outside, but check out David Hockney’s painting! Great Studio Space!

Art Foundations: Portrait Drawing AND Pattern Painting – PAIR SHARE YOUR PATTERNS AND YOUR DRAWINGS… Tell the story!

While this is NOT a continuous line portrait – check out the way the artist used the line to fill in the negative spaces. This is one way that we will be using line to help fill the space.

Advanced Drawing: Computer Lab to talk about the critique and take a day away from the drawing.

Chuck Close works being discussed. How would YOU talk about an artwork if you were asked to discuss it?

GOAL: BEFORE YOU WRITE THIS DOWN WITH NO THOUGHT… WHAT DO THEY MEAN TO YOU? WRITE IT OUT SO IT MAKES SENSE.

  1.  2) Use digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance, to support individual learning and to the learning of others.
  2. 3) Apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information.

How has the process of observation and the “simple” objects challenged you in the creation of the compositions here? Considering the idea that this basic topic has “been done before” what have you done to take it up a notch, make it more impressive, stronger than what you may have done in the past?

What is the main point that you took away from David Bayles and Ted Orland’s Chapter 1 in “ART and FEAR”? We are going to use the ART and FEAR blog to have a REAL STRONG conversation about what it is to be an artist. I WISH I HAD THIS BOOK IN HIGH SCHOOL AND IN COLLEGE. A lot of this is ABOVE YOU and WILL BE for some time… read it – reread it – and do that again. I will be setting out deadlines online for the chapter responses.
