Day two (with a day in-between to celebrate). What plans do you have for yourself for today? I hope that you are able to SET A PERSONAL GOAL and work towards that goal. Are you hanging out with others? Are you working silently and solo? Be aware of the TIME you spend talking and the time you spend working.

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?

#Homecoming Week – But we STILL MAKE ART!

“Art Can Be Anything.” It is not defined by medium or the means of its production, but by a collective sense that it belongs to a category of experiences we have come to know as “art”.”

“101 Things Learned in Art School”, Kit White, 2011, MIT Press

#Sketchbook #Tuesday #StudioArt360 – #Portraits for the rest of us.

“Never tell a young person that anything cannot be done. God may have been waiting centuries for someone ignorant enough of the impossible to do that very thing.” — John Andrew Holmes
