#Monday and #MrKorb is #Missing… No… I’m at a #GoogleConference in Union Grove.

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.”

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.

“A dream only becomes overrated when not pursued by the dreamer.” ― Courtney Hickman

Art Foundations: Collage and build the ABSTRACT IMAGE based on your personal life and feelings…

Simplicity in the use of ELEMENTS of ART can make an abstraction – what are you doing? What are your textures?

GOALS:

  1. 1.3 communicate your thoughts on social topics clearly
  2. 4.3 compare relationships in visual art in terms of 4.3.3 your culture as it relates to your own art.

What have you learned about the creation of ABSTRACT ART? What have you learned about the important things in your life THROUGH the creation of your ABSTRACT ART PROCESS?

~~~

DRAWING: 1) Perspective and 2) Critiques… 6th hour is going to have to hustle ONE DAY tocatch up. PHOTOGRAPHS will HAVE TO BE a part of the process. THESE Photos are going to be UPLOADED to the FINAL CRITIQUE for the FINAL EXAM… make sure you are documenting the process.

EVOL, “DRESDEN 09”, 2010 Spray paint on cardboard, 61 x 76 cm —> High Resolution… How can you do this… GOUACHE, GESSO, PENCIL!

GOALS:

  1. 5.1 Identify the rationale behind making art.
  2. 1.4 Create, define, and solve visual challenges using 1.4.1 Analysis (how do you see the perspective in your drawing?)

Where did you struggle in remembering perspective? How can you use the skills of sighting in to refresh your memory and heighten your skills? THIS IS A FAST PROJECT that IS the basis of the FINAL EXAM. If you do not finish the drawing in the time allotted – you will have a hard time passing the final exam. HOW can you make this YOUR own special drawing? Your locker? Your favorite hallway / doorway / classroom?

~~~

AP Studio Art: CONGRATULATIONS! Let’s get out there and be proud of the 9 months of ART MAKING!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

GOALS:

  1. 2.5 defend personal evaluations
  2. 3.3 describe the creation of images and ideas and explain why they are of value Work at the (AP) Art Exhibition.

What did you contribute to the cultural end of the school day? What questions came up? What controversy came up? Who do you impress and why? What were your thoughts as the day / hour went by? Good job folks… One more week of Art Making and then the end…

May 23, 2013 – Thursday

WELCOME HOME MOM!
WELCOME HOME MOM!

“A dream only becomes overrated when not pursued by the dreamer.” ― Courtney Hickman

  2. 4.3 compare relationships in visual art in terms of 4.3.3 your culture as it relates to your own art

~~~

Drawing: This is, hopefully, the last day of the critique – we are going to get some FINAL words from the 3rd hour and maybe the 6th hour – 1 more day in 6th likely…

What’s to come? – I will show you tomorrow… we can’t spend a lot of time in it but… if you are interested – here is an AWESOME link to the inspiration that will take you to the halls… LINK HERE to the WILDE Gallery, Berlin, Germany.

Crit of Still Life Drawings
Previous High school Classes Critiquing – ONE MORE DAY of confidence building!

GOALS:

  2. 1.4 Create, define, and solve visual challenges using 1.4.1 Analysis (how do you see the perspective in your drawing?)

What is the most important thing you have taken away from the entire process of the critique? How can you use the information that you have learned and put it to use in the next works that you are going to create?

I am so glad that I am back… thank you all.

GOALS:

  1. 2.1 form criticism about artworks that work to accomplish personal meanings (what are you trying to communicate?)

~~~

AP Studio Art: Installing your art exhibition and getting the space ready for your debut to the school.

GOALS:

  1. 2.5 defend personal evaluations
  2. 3.3 describe the creation of images and ideas and explain why they are of value

How does your artwork look? How have you put your best foot forward and represented yourself in the best light? What are the struggles you can see in your work? What are the successes that you see in your work?

May 21, 2013 – Tuesday

“A dream only becomes overrated when not pursued by the dreamer.” ― Courtney Hickman 

~~~

Art Foundations: We are going to be working in ABSTRACTION and reading about UNITY and that sort of stuff. If you are away… Check out the text online – Look to the right of the screen and click on the Foundations Page… REMEMBER that the exam is coming up shortly – begin to review! What are social topics that are important to you in life? We are going to create works over the next week that speak to the social topic that you feel is important enough in your life that you can make work to respond and comment on it.

ARTnews: The Golden Age of Abstraction: Right Now

Abstraction Worksheet / brainstorming sheet – HERE

Max Ernst (1891‑1976) Title The Entire City La Ville entière Date 1934 Medium Oil paint on paper on canvas Dimensions support: 502 x 613 mm frame: 696 x 798 x 47 mm Collection Tate Acquisition Purchased with assistance from the Knapping Fund 1941 Reference N05289

GOALS:

  1. 2.6 Work on creating multiple solutions to solve visual challenges.
  2. 3.2 apply subjects, symbols, and ideas in art and use skill to solve visual challenges.
How to ABSTRACT the idea of COSMOLOGY? Stars, planets, orbs, or orbits? What might you be able to do with this image?
What about the idea of a landscape? How could you abstract this idea with shape, line, texture, or / and color?
What about the idea of athletics as being important and how can you abstract this idea? The use of abstraction is hard, but when you think about simplifying the forms into shape and focus on the arrangement of the shapes, colors, textures, or other elements of art… it can become easier and more meaningful.

What is the social topic that you feel is important enough to make an artwork about? Why does it touch your life? How?

~~~

DRAWING:

Perspective… Remember this???

GOALS:

  1. Create multiple solutions to visual problems.

What were the biggest challenges you had today with perspective? What came back to you relatively easily?

~~~

AP Studio Art: Hang a show! Get the work up and out!

Make it even… make it straight… make it balanced!

GOALS:

  1. 2.5 defend personal evaluations
  2. 3.3 describe the creation of images and ideas and explain why they are of value
