Halfway through the week #Wednesday. What’s next in the #ArtStudio?

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

#Wednesday is here – #LateWork is #DUE at 3:00!

#28: An idea is only as good as its execution. It is important that you master your medium. Poorly made work will either ruin a good idea or make the lamentable execution itself the subject. Overly finessed technique can mask a lack of content or can smother an image. At the same time, roughness and imprecision has its place in rendering. One can only gauge the need to throw technique away if one has first achieved the mastery of it. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

IF YOU ARE MIISSING WORK! This is a NOT SO GENTLE REMINDER to GET YOUR WORK COMPLETED TODAY for a GRADE IN THE FIRST QUARTER! If it is not IN BY 3:00 TODAY – it is a ZERO in the GRADE BOOK!

#Friday is Here and it’s #ArtMaking Time

#13 Each generation gets to reinvent art in its own image. Because art is an act of description, it is inevitable that what it describes will reflect every generation’s bias of the moment. It is not a strict reflection of a time but an interpretation rendered in a language that is always in a state of transformation. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

As we are now halfway through the semester, please reflect on the skills, techniques, or tools in your art toolbox that you did not necessarily come into this studio art course with but have since developed anew, or at the least gotten a better grasp or understanding of. Please take a few minutes and write out your new skills and where you remember developing them as the quarter progressed. (Projects, discussions, feedback, reflections… be specific and write complete sentences.) Use the space to the right for more room

Studio Art 360: CLAY and Cups and Figures and Animals

 What do you currently know about using CLAY?  N: DEMO on the use of a slab of clay and the ADDITIVE and SUBTRACTIVE methods.

Animal Sculpture (look at historical ideas – REALLY OLD sculpture – stuff), Post Modern – Neo-Pop Keith Haring and other 3D Works – Bright Colors etc..

Here’s More from MY TRIPS to Milwaukee.

Wednesday and let’s wrap some stuff up!

#13 Each generation gets to reinvent art in its own image. Because art is an act of description, it is inevitable that what it describes will reflect every generation’s bias of the moment. It is not a strict reflection of a time but an interpretation rendered in a language that is always in a state of transformation. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

Studio Art 360: A bit of still life and a bit of reflection.

Space: Using all of the knowledge you have gained from the first batch of sketches, create a drawing that emphasizes the idea of space, depth, form, perhaps perspective. Consider your understanding of Line, Shape, Form, Texture, and Color to complete this assignment.

Take a LONG HARD LOOK at your composition. What is happening with the FIGURE? The GROUND? The POSITIVE SPACE? The NEGATIVE SPACE? TOMORROW is the last day… Critique, Mount, and Hand Them In happens tomorrow – last 15 – 20 minutes is NOT DRAWING TIME. Keep that in Mind as we move through today.
