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?

#Friday in #Studio means #MAKE ART! But casually – #bluejeans and #TShirts

 Art has no boundaries except those imposed by the needs of the maker. Boundaries are a form of definition, nothing more. They are a way to create a hierarchy of concerns, interests and priorities. Boundaries change all the time. That is part of what art does. By defining an area of interest or by stating a new priority, art allows us to create new definitions of ourselves and the context in which we operate. To blur a boundary is to confuse the definition. To move a boundary is to make a new definition. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School
