NEW TIME – 7:00AM – The Weeks go by SO FAST!

#78 Self-portraiture has a long and storied history. It is something that most artists undertake in their training. It can yield great revelations of character and technique as in Rembrandt, van Gogh, and Bacon. It will succeed or fail based on its interest as an image. Try to judge it as an image, not as a mirror. Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

#End of the #FirstQuarter is upon us. #MissingWork? #GetItDone! MID WEEK #Wednesday or it is a #ZERO!

Paul Klee – http://totallyhistory.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/senecio-1922-paul-klee.jpg

#28: An idea is only as good as its execution. It is important that you master your medium. Poorly made work will either ruin a good idea or make the lamentable execution itself the subject. Overly finessed technique can mask a lack of content or can smother an image. At the same time, roughness and imprecision has its place in rendering. One can only gauge the need to throw technique away if one has first achieved the mastery of it. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

IF YOU ARE MIISSING WORK! This is a GENTLE REMINDER to GET YOUR WORK COMPLETED by WEDNESDAY for a GRADE IN THE FIRST QUARTER! If it is not IN BY 3:00 Wednesday – it is a ZERO in the GRADEBOOK!

Goals:

  • 2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form
  • What was MOST successful in your portrait? Please sit back and LOOK at the drawing and refresh your idea about WHAT YOU LEARNED? How can you defend what you learned?

What is the progress of the drawing thus far? What is your neighbor doing well? What is your neighbor not doing successfully? Share your thoughts with your neighbors.

Goals:

  • 1.2P: Shape an artistic investigation of an aspect of present-day life using a contemporary practice of art or design.
  • Review with your neighbor the relationships and mixing of the colors on the color wheel. Write out how you mix the THREE SECONDARY COLORS in your GOALS page.

THIS is what it SHOULD look like!
