Three Days WITH Mr. Korb – Two days WITHOUT… What is Today?

Art is the Product of Process: 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. 101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White

How did doing the visit with your classmates open your ears to what was said? How did it open your eyes to what you saw?

#Thursday – SO SOON!

Learn To Draw: “Drawing is more than a tool for rendering and capturing likenesses. It is a language, with its own syntax, grammar, and urgency. Learning to draw is about learning to see. In this way, it is a metaphor for all art activity. Whatever its form, drawing transforms perception and thought into image and teaches us how to think with our eyes.”

Student Information Sheet at the BOTTOM of the post.


Stained Glass:  Curved Shapes and PERFECTION

2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.

Are you up to speed in the cutting end of your practice pieces? Are you ready to begin your colored glass pattern? We are going to talk copper wrapping of the glass soon.

Cutting Curves in Stained Glass: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/OmzwRIghlPE/0.jpg

Ease of cutting? Challenges of cutting? Planning of the process is REALLY important – make sure you are thinking things through. Are you able to make strong cuts and easy breaks with the tools?

CIaD: Letters and Logos

2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.

Working on paper is different than working on the computer. Using a collection of FONTS that you can choose (we will look at these in the Adobe Illustrator Font Collection) you will find a wide variety of fonts that you enjoy and explore many different way of joining letters into positive and negative shapes (as well as adding a geometric or organic shape or two) in creating a Logo Design  for yourself” This will take some time – be ready to SKETCH and EXPLORE ideas.

20 “Clear sight makes clear art.” Observation lies at the heart of the art process. Whether your art derives from mimicking nature or extrapolating a mental construct, your powers of observation are critical. Unless you can see what lies before you, you cannot describe it. Train yourself to eliminate preconceptions and received understandings when observing anything. Try to see what is before you, not what you think you see or want to see.  Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

Paul Cezanne: Post-Impressionism: http://static.ddmcdn.com/gif/paintings-by-paul-cezanne-5.jpg

This Summer is all about: Develop Craft: Learning to use tools, materials, artistic conventions; and learning to care for tools, materials, and space.

Landscapes and simplification of the space – far off space. Looking at the work of Paul Cezanne and the works of the Post-Impressionists – What simplification do we see in the work they have created? Be aware of the breaking up of the space and shapes into a simple fashion, but also consider the ideas of adding details and specific shapes.
