“If we write our dreams and goals down, we dramatically increase our odds of realization. If we share them with others, they become potent and alive.” ―Kristin Armstrong

Dreams and GOALS? Well… Joseph Cornell had dreams… and he created BOXES to hold them in. https://korbartwuhs.files.wordpress.com/2014/06/bdb11-josephcornellbebemarie.jpg

Do you have the WEBSITE / BLOG up and running? This is a portion of the FINAL GRADE and you had ALL YEAR (essentially) to work on it. How can I help?

#Goals and #Dreams and #Objectives are ALL in your reach!

“If we write our dreams and goals down, we dramatically increase our odds of realization. If we share them with others, they become potent and alive.” ―Kristin Armstrong

What DREAMS and GOALS do you see BEYOND today? By writing them and REFLECTING on them – you are more likely to reach them… no matter how high they are !


What is COLLABORATIVE about this? how can WE work on one presentation that better explains the ideas behind our work? http://www.gamechannel.hu/pictures/hirblock/uj_call_of_duty_jatekot_jelentettek_be_es_meg_1.jpg


  1. How have you COLLABORATIVELY used technology to create a project larger than you might have done by yourself? Write out and SHARE the SPECIFIC example that you can think of (computer games?)

What do you think of the work of your classmates? Take a look through the document as you wrap up your thoughts and see how you can work harder and focused… What COULD you have done differently?

Drawing: Keep Working! American Regionalists

Thomas Hart Benton – American Regionalist – COMMENTING ON SOCIETY!


  1. Look at the remaining 2 days on your COMMUNITY artwork. What skills have you developed that are making this work successful? What do you need to do to finish?

Your final exam STATEMENT that WILL BE ADDED TO YOUR CURRENT RESEARCH PAGE in the GOOGLE DRIVE is: In three paragraphs explain the following: PARAGRAPH ONE: Who was the American Regionalist  artist that you researched? What was it about their work that interested you to investigate and research them. Give SPECIFIC EXAMPLES. PARAGRAPH TWO: What is the MEANING behind your work? What symbols, ideas, messages are you communicating in the work. Again – GIVE SPECIFIC EXAMPLES! PARAGRAPH THREE: What is successful or unsuccessful about your work? Where did you find successful aspects about the work you have created? Where is the work SOARING? Where did you struggle? What is challenging about the process that you went through? AGAIN – EXAMPLES!


AP Studio Art: Collaborative Work!

What does this look like? This is PART of your exam. Make sure it is FINISHED for SHARING – After the end of the year your name is removed from editing…


  1. Continue the collaborative mural for the Social Studies Computer Lab. Write out your PERSONAL thoughts about the collaborative work. RESOLVE your KORBAPARTWUHS.WORDPRESS blog page – EXAM – This is your EXAM! Statement… IMAGES… 12 CONCENTRATION, 12 BREADTH.

How have you been able to do A LOT of work in one day that you may not have been able to in the past? How have you been able to improve your drawing and idea skills more in the past year than you have in the past?

It’s a beauty… and I am talking about your art, not the car.

“In not stating the goal to the students, they are like a family going on a trip with Dad in the driver’s seat and him not sharing what the destination is. Dad knows where he’s going, but the rest of the family has no clue.” – Lori Wildeman

How much does it cost and what is the gas mileage?

Art Foundations 2D

Guggy 14
Guggenheim Bilbao Spain by: Rosa Cobos – Guess what were going to do? Seriously, guess!


  1. 1.2 create 2 point perspective cityscape that demonstrates an understanding of how your ideas relate to the 1.2.3 processes you use
  2. 6.3 use the principles and techniques of art as a city planner, or architect might.

What part of the two point perspective CITYSCAPE, NEIGHBORHOOD, or INTERIOR did you begin to struggle with? What came easy? What are you going to be incorporating into it that will make it your own?

Advanced Drawing

Pierre Bonnard – What was his COLOR SCHEME? How did he change the idea of the OBSERVATION and make it his own?


  1. 1.1 apply media (Oil Pastels), techniques (6 of them), and processes with an awareness so that your ideas are executed well.
  2. 2.6 create multiple solutions to visual challenges that show understanding in relationships between composition and meaning of artwork.
Finger Blend, Paper Towel, Tortillion, Pastel over Pastel, Solvent (with Q-Tip and Brush)
Finger Blend, Paper Towel, Tortillion, Pastel over Pastel, Solvent (with Q-Tip and Brush)

What was the success in today’s drawing? What was the challenge?  Looking ahead, what are you hoping to accomplish in the remaining 2 days before we hit the halls?

AP Studio Art

Let’s go to the HELLHOLE and see what we can see!


  1. 1.2 Create works of visual Art that demonstrate an understanding of how the communication of your ideas relate to the 1.2.1 media, 1.2.2 technique 1.2.3 and process you use. (What is the message, the materials and what you need to do to get you there?)
  2. 2.3 Create artworks that use organizational structures and functions to solve specific visual art problems. COMPOSITION! Planning!

Where are you with the ADVENTURES illustration? Where are you with your CONCENTRATION work? I am hoping you are making STRONG progress in the development of the CONCENTRATION. Where are you in Chapter 6 of Art and Fear? What is your plan for accomplishing this amount of work in the short time allowed? What was the struggle you had in the past 2 weeks? What struggled? What soared? What will you have to do to adjust your working schedule?
