#Tuesday is #ArtDay

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.” Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

Studio Art 360: Sketchbook Assignment and EXAMPLES

FIVE weeks into sketchbooks – what are you accomplishing with the TOOLS of drawing that you have struggled on in the previous sketches – or what are you doing better in this week’s class work that you can put into your sketchbook assignment?

Tell me about your thoughts regarding ABSTRACTIONS and UNITY as we looked at this?

Extra Credit – Watch this video and write up a one paragraph (12 sentence) statement about your response, reaction, interest, curiosity about Gary Petersen’s Artwork. Speak specifically about some of his works -mention it BY NAME and the TIME in the video I can find it. List the Why’s and Becauses regarding why you respond to it the way you do. A well written statement will be worth a week’s sketchbook as A’s – one extra set of A’s in your grades for taking the time to Understand (Arts) Community: Learning to interact as an artist with other artists (i.e., in classrooms, in local arts organizations, and across the art field) and within the broader society. Arts is in parenthesis here as it can easily be switched with other disciplines, like science or history.
