ALL LATE WORK IS DUE TODAY – No Exceptions! Period.


TODAY is, for the most part, a day for cleaning. Let us use this time wisely to gather our art, our supplies, our personal belongings, and move them all home. If we finish – it is work time. Other than that… it is time to get the room in order. Work continues on TUESDAY so be

Studio Art 360 – FORMS and DRAWING – Shadows and CHIAROSCURO

How is your drawing coming along? Let’ stalk about the values you are using… http://www.deborahboardman.com/uploaded_images/morandi-giorgio-natura-morta-stilleben-9701106-712697.jpg

COMPOSITION EXAMPLES! Let’s see how to set up a composition!

Goals:

  • 1.1P: Use multiple approaches to begin creative endeavors.
  • Looking at the DRAWING in front of you… what ONE aspect of the drawing are you going to REALLY FOCUS ON today?

This is the third day of working on these drawings… where do you see yourself having a HIGHLIGHT in the drawing? Where do you see the CORE of the SHADOW? Where are the Midtones (lights and shadows)?

Painting and AP Studio Art – Critique – LAST DAY? HURRY!

What is it you DO Like? http://ufdigitalimaging.weebly.com/uploads/2/5/2/6/25260964/7718351_orig.gif

Goals:

  • AP Studio Art – 4.2Ad: Critique, justify, and present choices in the process of analyzing, selecting, curating, and presenting artwork for a specific exhibit or event.
  • Painting – 3.1Ac: Engage in constructive critique with peers, then reflect on, re-engage, revise, and refine works of art and design in response to personal artistic vision.
  • Last Day of the Crit? Hope so… Of all the works you have seen so far, what has been the most successful aspect to that work? Be specific and thoughtful. OR Of the works you have seen what has been the weakest aspect of the work – BE SPECIFIC AND THOUGHTFUL!

What are you going to carry forward into your next work? If not the work the approach you take / habits / techniques / attitude?

What artwork, of all the artworks you saw, were you happiest with? WHY! Give specific reasons!

Deadlines are here. Concentration is required. What’s your perspective? Can you see the abstract?

Time is up… at 3:00 that is. What have you got to turn in? Anything?

There is an immeasurable distance between late and too late.”

Art Foundations 2D: 2 Point Perspective and NON LINEAR perspective. TEXTBOOK!

Notice how Leonardo DaVinci has used the vanishing point to help draw the viewers eyes into the focal point of the painting? What is SOME of the symbolism behind his painting? CLICK ON THE PAINTING FOR MORE INFORMATION!

GOALS: Are you REALLY understanding these goals? Do they MEAN anything to you or are you writing them simply because I am asking you?

  1. 1.4 create, define, and solve visual challenges using 1.4.1 analysis (breaking up the artwork / subject matter to basic elements).

Review with neighbors the RULES of THUMB and discuss the Differences in one and two point perspective.

~~~

Advanced Drawing: Non-Objective Value Drawing based on Observation… How’s it going? Share your ideas with your classmates – FIRST THING! Set out your sketchbooks and write out your thoughts on your classmates works. MAKE A PHOTOGRAPH of the progress of yours.

How's this ABSTRACTED? How are YOU dealing with this idea?
How’s this ABSTRACTED? How are YOU dealing with this idea?
Richard Diebenkorn’s ABSTRACT Non-Objective artwork based on REAL LIFE observations of his surroundings. What is so difficult for you?

GOALS:

  1. 2.3 create artworks that solve visual challenges
  2. 5.1 identify the rationale behind making art

What are your BIGGEST CHALLENGES with this drawing? What are YOU learning with and through this project of direct-observation?

~~~

AP Studio Art: Concentration #1 – THINK THINK THINK!

What are you DOING in your sketchbook? How are you USING it to develop your IDEAS?

GOALS:

  1. 1.4 create and define, visual challenges (your concentrations)  using 1.4.1 analysis (breaking up the artwork / subject matter to basic elements)

What is your plan for the ENTIRE body of work? What is your plan for your first work? Take the last 7 minutes to TALK WITH A GROUP about the progress – without me involved. I want to see you discuss with one another the ideas.

It’s ALMOST never too late… ALMOST!

Art Foundations: Intro to Perspective and Positive / Negative Compositions

READ THIS – How do you draw blocks so they look like they are REAL 3D blocks? Give it a shot – Right Now. Open your sketchbooks and draw a cube to the best of your ability. READ THIS and FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS! Go To It!

GOALS: NOTE – these are LONG… what do they mean to you? Write them out in your OWN words if you can.

  1. 1.4 create, define, and solve visual challenges using 1.4.1 analysis (breaking up the artwork / subject matter to basic elements).
  2. 1.2 create art that demonstrates an understanding of how your ideas relate to the 1.2.3 and processes (linear perspective) you use

How do you see space? As we work in perspective, I hope you are able to understand the ideas of linear perspective and the creation of compositions.

Advanced Drawing: Non-Objective Drawing based on REALITY!

What do you see? How can you create a NON-OBJECTIVE drawing from something that is REAL?
What do you see? How can you create a NON-OBJECTIVE drawing from something that is REAL?
How did Richard Dibenkorn create a non-objective image from reality?

GOALS:

  1. 2.6 Work on creating multiple solutions to solve visual challenges.
  2. 5.1 identify the rationale behind making art (NON-Objective from direct observation)

How did you develop the idea of the composition? Is it challenging for you to see non-objective inside the real observable objects? Is your composition interesting enough to stop someone and make them think?

~~~

AP Studio Art: Concentration #1 and #2 – Yikes! Sketchbook Development too!

How can you use the sketchbook to REALLY develop your ideas? Can you? Do you still feel like the sketchbook is a precious object that mistakes and experiments can;t happen in?

GOALS: The BIG deal for the week(s) to come is to develop and advance the ideas for your concentration.

  1. 5.1 identify the rationale behind making art.
  2. 4.4 evaluate and interpret art for relationships in 4.4.1 form 4.4.2 context

What are your plans for the first 2 works. We are working on MULTIPLES!  What is the greatest FEAR you have regarding these works? What is your plan for tomorrow? (Due next Monday – Concentration #1).

February 21, 2013 – Thursday – LAST DAY OF THE WEEK… for you.

Is your LATE work in? What is your excuse? What do you have to do to get it done? What are you at?

~~~

LATE WORK IS DUE TODAY! IF YOU HAVE ANY LATE SKETCHBOOKS OR PROJECTS THAT HAVE NOT BEEN TURNED IN… THEY ARE NOT GOING TO BE ACCEPTED AFTER 3:00 TODAY!

~~~

Are YOU following the site? Keep up with all that is happening in the art room and stay ahead of the rest of the crew!

~~~

Art Foundations: Final day for PORTRAITS. Cut the faces out, finish the backgrounds, adhesive the portraits to the painting.

Is there pattern in this drawing? Did the artist use any contour lines in the artwork? Is there a sense of form? Have you gained any in your artwork?

GOALS:

  1. 3.2 apply subjects, symbols, and ideas in art and use skill to solve visual challenges

 How can you successfully or with failure, use pattern in your daily life? What are the safety techniques we discussed regarding the X-Acto Knives?

~~~

Drawing: Continue with the value grid drawing, evaluate the process, make photographs of the image (this weekend when it is done) and write your self-critique… seems like a lot.

So… let’s imagine what it might be like of we were able to gather in a GALLERY space to talk about our art. What are your biggest concerns about the discussion of the works you have completed?

GOALS:

  1. 2.1 form criticism about artworks that work to accomplish 2.1.2 personal or 2.1.4 other meanings

What do you feel was the MAJOR aspect of the written crit. that YOU NEED TO WORK ON? What are the challenges you think you are facing when it comes to the written portion. What do you see as the benefit of the Crit. What do you see as a downfall / challenge?

~~~

AP Studio Art: What ideas are you getting regarding your “Outside of the classroom” project? What are your challenges that come up? What do you want to do? What are you afraid of?

What can you do to continue your concentration ideas moving forward? What is it about the work that you are currently making? What is it about the work that is causing you STRESS?

GOALS:

  1. Technology Operations and Concepts – Introduction to  the AP Studio site.
  2. 1.3 communicate ideas clearly with your NEW ideas for the BREADTH work and the CONCENTRATION work.
What has been happening in your work that FITS with your statements? How can you continue to think about the statement you have written and refresh your ideas?
