#Texture and #Crayons and #Surfaces… What kind of colors do you like? Oh… #CRITIQUE TOO (No #photography – but DON’T forget about this site!)

There’s no retirement for an artist, it’s your way of living so there’s no end to it. Henry Moore

Studio Art 360 – Textures and Textbooks! Into the classroom and into the halls!

LARGE GROUP Slide Show Project – Let’s SEE it HERE!

Max Ernst and his COLLAGES! http://uploads0.wikipaintings.org/images/max-ernst/the-entire-city-1935.jpg

Goals:

  • 2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan.
  • What TEXTURES do you find comforting? What Textures do you find discomforting?

What was your favorite way of gathering textures today? How do you see being able to use them tomorrow in the ONE DAY COLLAGE experience based on MAX ERNST’s works.  

Painting – CRITIQUE Today!

Same as the AP – Remember the process and DIGEST the information!

Goals:

  • 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.
  • What was helpful about 1) seeing your work from a distance and 2) hearing what others thought about the work you created?

What is something that you took away from the critique today – whether it be about YOUR work or about another person’s work.

AP Studio Art – Concentration! REVIEW the COOKIE with the painters. Then onto the hallway and HANG YOUR WORK in the CASES and CRITIQUE!

Tuesday at MIDNIGHT CHAPTER 3 is due in Art and Fear Blog.

Remember the PROCESS of the critique? What do you need to do with it at the END of it all? Take it all in? Right!

Goals:

  • 4.2Ad: Critique, justify, and present choices in the process of analyzing, selecting, curating, and presenting artwork for a specific exhibit or event.
  • What was helpful about 1) seeing your work from a distance and 2) hearing what others thought about the work you created?

TEXTURE PAGE – HERE

What are the most interesting textures you have gathered? What do you think you might be able to use them as in the artwork?

Drawing: Portraits

Ah… the musicians. How did Matisse simplify? How are his colors being used? If he had a box of 24, would he use them all? I don’t think so. http://www.daydaypaint.com/images/Commerical-Painting/Henri-Matisse-Painting-027.jpg

GOALS

  1. Identify the intentions and purposes behind making art.

What was the most challenging way to draw? Why was this most difficult way to go? What is most important about drawing when it comes to observation?

GOALS

  1. NO GOALS! EXAM DAY! Take all the goals you’ve put out there in the past YEAR and let’s prove ourselves today! I am SO PROUD of YOU ALL!

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

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.

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

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?

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
