TODAY – June 20 (Happy Birthday Mr. Korb)

Develop Craft: Learning to use tools, materials, artistic conventions; and learning to care for tools, materials, and space.

Richard Diebenkorn (Ocean Park Series) is a good reference as we get things moving today. Simplification of space and shapes. Look for the larger areas first and then move into the smaller spaces. Nothing up close – BIG and HUGE spaces today. Pencil and Watercolors and then Oil Pastels (and Conté) are the mediums of the day. Consider the sense of value contrast as well as the sense of color and shape. We’re looking at a bit of abstraction – this is a challenge.

Sketching out ideas and SIMPLIFY the space. Today we DO NOT WORRY about any sense of ACCURACY and only look at the larger shapes and colors. Start there.

Step back and see what you’ve done – quick end of class look at the entire body of work we’re creating so far. Are you EXPERIMENTING?
