It’s Essentially #Friday (for you)

How are you using your 50 sheets of paper? Here is a Jennifer Bartlett - This is how she used a lot of sections of paper (canvas perhaps... board...) https://s3.amazonaws.com/files.collageplatform.com.prod/image_cache/600x345_fit/558176bf278e1af86c88ecaf/e18793c7e3a92b23f6abe463082d793a.jpeg

“Art is the only way to run away without leaving home” Twyla Tharp – Choreographer

Where are you hoping to run away to with your work?


Drawing: CHARCOAL and White Charcoal.

2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.

What do you see creating a series of drawings can do for a artist that a single drawing would not allow the artist to do? We are going to be working on two different CHARCOAL Drawings with this artwork – Today – we experiment with CHARCOAL. Follow along and then experiment on your own.

Where in your drawing do you see the idea of OBSERVATION as being a skill that is worthy / in need of you focusing on? WHY? What’s the problem? What’s the challenge?

SO SORRY about the lateness of today’s post – Painting a bathroom last night and the evening got away from me. Ok, What’s Next?

#17 Drawing is About Mark Making

“Every mark has a distinct character and quality.Every mark is a signature. Variations in pressure and weight is the visual equivalent of intonation. Marks, or lines, of consistent weight or thickness surrounding a figure or object will flatten the image. Tapering or breaking a line in a curve can connote a highlight or make the curve flow. Also, a tentative line will read as such. Give every mark or line authority and make sure it serves a purpose. Try to use only the marks you need.” 101 Things Learned in Art School, Kit White, 2011, MIT Press

While it is UNCERTAIN where we are exactly in the process of making art at this point, please take a sticky note (or two or three) and place it next to your work – hopefully we are in an unfinished state. Take time and WALK AROUND the studio and comment on your classmates work – complete sentences – and give them the feedback that you would like to receive as a learning artist. Stick these stickers in your folder RIGHT THERE.
