AP Studio Art: Masterpiece Influence breadth work – 3 Days (+ the Weekend)

1.2Ad: Choose from a range of materials and methods of traditional and contemporary artistic practices, following or breaking established conventions, to plan the making of multiple works of art and design based on a theme, idea, or concept.

What have  you learned / enjoyed / been inspired by as you looked at and read about the various artists from the Scholastic Arts magazines? What ONE THING – One Artist really stands out?

From ANY of the Scholastic Arts Magazines we have read this semester (and there should have been 9) please create a small, intimate work (no larger than 8” x 10”) that 1) explores that artists historical place, influence, creations in the art world and 2) includes your personal approach to making art and some inkling about why you are influenced / inspired by their work. ALSO – a brief – one paragraph statement that explains your ideas / work. This is good to add to the description part of your image as you upload it to the website.

10 Things CREATIVE people do – Have you ever wondered why some people are more creative than others? Did you ever wish that you had more of that particular gene? The good news is that research shows that happiness and creativity are not only related, they can be developed. Here are 10 ways to jumpstart your creativity, starting now:

 

3. Get in the Flow: Focus on the moment rather than the goal. When you are totally immersed in a creative activity, when hours feel like moments, you open to tapping into something bigger than yourself. Let it flow through you.

4. Let Your Senses Come Alive: Notice not only how things look, but how they feel in your hand, how they smell, the sounds surrounding you, even the nuances of taste. Don’t forget to listen to your gut — that’s an important sense too!

10 Things CREATIVE people do – Have you ever wondered why some people are more creative than others? Did you ever wish that you had more of that particular gene? The good news is that research shows that happiness and creativity are not only related, they can be developed. Here are 10 ways to jumpstart your creativity, starting now:

1. Listen In: Listen to your intuition and capture your new ideas. Whether from your morning shower, nighttime dreams, when running, in the car, or in nature, keep an idea notebook and jot it down.

2. Mind Your Mindset: When you start something new, you can either choose to put yourself down and succumb to the inner critic (fixed mindset) or enjoy the process of creation (growth mindset).
