Art is the product of process.“Whether conceptual, experimental, emotional, or formal, the process you develop yields the image you produce. The materials you choose, the methods of production, and the sources of the images should all reflect the interests that command your attention. The process does not stop with each work completed. It is ongoing. The cumulative result of that process is a body of work.” Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School
Studio Art 360: Sketchbook Assignment and EXAMPLES
FIVE weeks into sketchbooks – what are you accomplishing with the TOOLS of drawing that you have struggled on in the previous sketches – or what are you doing better in this week’s class work that you can put into your sketchbook assignment?
Tell me about your thoughts regarding ABSTRACTIONS and UNITY as we looked at this?
Extra Credit – Watch this video and write up a one paragraph (12 sentence) statement about your response, reaction, interest, curiosity about Gary Petersen’s Artwork. Speak specifically about some of his works -mention it BY NAME and the TIME in the video I can find it. List the Why’s and Becauses regarding why you respond to it the way you do. A well written statement will be worth a week’s sketchbook as A’s – one extra set of A’s in your grades for taking the time to Understand (Arts) Community: Learning to interact as an artist with other artists (i.e., in classrooms, in local arts organizations, and across the art field) and within the broader society. Arts is in parenthesis here as it can easily be switched with other disciplines, like science or history.

3.1Ac: Engage in constructive critique with peers, then reflect on, re-engage, revise, and refine works of art and design in response to personal artistic vision.
Looking at the work in front of you – and knowing we are critiquing on MONDAY and TUESDAY – What CRITERIA would you consider as we begin to consider evaluation? Please consider some of the NATIONAL VISUAL STANDARDS as you write this one up – it may take a few minutes to complete this before you begin PAINTING!
Reflection / Evaluation: What CRITERIA are you focused on in the creation of your work? Are you drawn to that criteria in additional works you make?

Reflection / Evaluation: If you are NOT done with the paper mache forms, what 2 or 3 things do you think held you back in the process? If you ARE done… close to being done… what are 2 or 3 specific criteria that you would use to judge your work as successful or unsuccessful and WHY?
