Tuesday, October 17, 2017 – #That’sIt – #MakeArt

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

Drawing: Eyes and Mouth

1.1Ac: Individually or collaboratively formulate new creative problems based on student’s existing artwork.

When you start out drawing the MOUTH… what do you start with? Why do you feel that you start with that facial feature?

What mistakes did YOU make – how bad were they when it came to mouth?

Studio Art 360: Still Life – WAIT – Color Schemes and Sketchbooks

2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan.

What do you feel is the value of practicing in a sketchbook? How can you see this as being a place that others (engineers, designers, architects, artists) might need as a valuable tool?

COLOR SCHEMES and your choices for UNITY! https://i.pinimg.com/736x/74/78/8f/74788f4874bf8167c4e7ab7968531b7c–dark-site-dark-colors.jpg

Instructions for Color:

  • Begin by drawing out three 7” x 4” FORMAT BOXES on three pages in your sketchbook.
  • Divide your format box up by using 7 straight or curved lines. Do the same on the next two pages.
  • On the first page, use one color scheme (page 29 in your handbook) of watercolor paints and fill the spaces in.
  • On the second page, choose another color scheme and do the same.
  • Lastly, on the third page – use whatever colors you want.
  • When they are all dry – either define the lines with black sharpie marker (thick / thin / variety) or crayons that are of similar color scheme.
  • When you evaluate this assignment – consider the success of the works that have a specific color scheme in comparison to the one without a specific color scheme.

What is your favorite color scheme? Why does it work for you so well?
