Using nature to make art – how are are you doing? Nils-Udo.

  • 1.2Ad: Choose from a range of materials and methods of traditional and contemporary artistic practices, following or breaking established conventions, to plan the making of multiple works of art and design based on a theme, idea, or concept.
  • What has been successful for your outdoor work? What has FAILED you? Where do you need to go from here?

With this OUT OF THE BOX (out of the doors) assignment… What struggles are you facing> Where are  you falling in the snow? What are your challenges?  Nils-Udo

Advanced Drawing: Time to CRIT!

Critique – TODAY! Let’s REALLY get to it!

Goals:

  • 3.1Ad: Reflect on, re-engage, revise, and refine works of art or design considering relevant traditional and contemporary criteria as well as personal artistic vision.
  • What was the successful part of the drawing for you? What will you carry forward as you make more art?

How did doing the critique open your ears to what was said? How did it open your eyes to what you saw?

Drawing: DRAWING – What is the criteria you think about when judging art!

Morandi did it well – How well are you doing? How well did you do?

Goals:

  • 3.1Ac: Engage in constructive critique with peers, then reflect on, re-engage, revise, and refine works of art and design in response to personal artistic vision.
  • Looking at the still life you have drawn, what are aspects that you would talk about if you were critiquing the work as being successful or unsuccessful?

Why do you feel that using white objects is worthy or unworthy, simple or complicated as the subject matter or idea for a drawing? What can you take forward from this experience into the next artwork?

Let’s think about how Andy Goldsworthy DID this sculpture?

  • As you look back on the body of works you have created so far, what are TWO things that you are seeing as falling short of AP Level work?

What were the biggest impressions you had from going outside for ideas? What were the most difficult things you felt as you presented your work? Conversation between classmates about the 2 questions for your exam. How does this work relate to your concentration?

Advanced Drawing: Let’s LISTEN about the AP Concentrations!

Critique Time – Tomorrow we will sit and talk about the works – What are the strengths you are seeing in your work? What are the struggles?

Goals:

  • 3.1Ad: Reflect on, re-engage, revise, and refine works of art or design considering relevant traditional and contemporary criteria as well as personal artistic vision.

How does identifying the criteria behind a letter grade (or number grade) help you see, know about, or understand what they represent? How do you think this will help you work on your art as you move forward?

Drawing: DRAWING TIME!
