#Welcome Back #Mr.Korb! We REALLY Missed You (Really?)

#13 Each generation gets to reinvent art in its own image. Because art is an act of description, it is inevitable that what it describes will reflect every generation’s bias of the moment. It is not a strict reflection of a time but an interpretation rendered in a language that is always in a state of transformation. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

PAGE 16 in HANDBOOK

As we end the quarter – please look at the skills and ideas you have developed (or may have already had) over these 8 weeks. Pretty impressive? I think so. One of the most common requests I get is to “let us do our OWN thing.” Well… talk about that with your neighbors – What is ONE ARTWORK that you would like to pursue – Anything you want – the sky’s the limit!

Studio Art 360: A bit of still life and a bit of reflection.
