Wednesday – Let’s See if #Mr.Korb can be here for the day. What are the odds?

Art is the Product of Process: Art is the product of process: Whether conceptual, experimental, emotional, or formal, the process you develop yields the image you produce. The materials you choose, the methods of production, and the sources of the images should all reflect the interests that command your attention. The process does not stop with each work completed. It is ongoing. The cumulative result of that process is a body of work. 101 Things to Learn in Art School Kit White © 2011 Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Kit White


Ouch. Be Careful – I was and this can still happen…

Stained Glass: Let’s Get Ourselves Back to Center…

10.1Ac: Utilize inquiry methods of observation, research, and experimentation to explore unfamiliar subjects through art-making.

What went WELL yesterday as you essentially began the process of the pattern making? Name three things about the hour that were GOOD for the ARTMAKING. Let’s learn to FOIL the Glass Today!

Looking at the pattern, are you seeing any areas that you feel will cause you trouble in the process?

CIaD: How’s Illustrator Going? Logo Ideas? What’s the Challenge?

7.1Ac: Recognize and describe personal aesthetic and empathetic responses to the natural world and constructed environments.

What do you need to do in order to make this logo design work in 3 ways? Letters Only, Words Only, an the COMBINATION MARK (and also the SYMBOL / ICON – 4 ways I guess. What will you do to be ready to combine it with a partner in the process? How can you SHARE this so we can make the image 4 up on a page?

Logo design – High Fashion: https://teessketchbook.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/fashion-logo-2.png
Tomorrow you are teaming up to 1) Resolve the IMAGE and 2) COMBINE the 4 images onto ONE 11” x 8.5” page so we can print FRIDAY and TRANSFER. FUN!

Drawing: Landscape – I don’t think you started CHARCOAL yet

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

Working on the pencil yesterday – how was it different that working in CHARCOAL from MONDAY?

What strengths are you needing to continue to work on? Is it a technique? Is it a studio habit?

AP Studio Art: Crit? Maybe the Concentration

4.2Ad: Critique, justify, and present choices in the process of analyzing, selecting, curating, and presenting artwork for a specific exhibit or event.

What do you have to say about the work in front of you? How are you going to look at the experience and learn from it? What have you done to PUSH yourself in the process of making your art stronger, more successful? A LEVEL 6?

We are beginning our CONCENTRATION tomorrow – 5 weeks off. What have you gained from taking a HUGE BREAK from the LARGE BODY of work? What have you lost?

Adv. Drawing: Still Life – Coming to an end SOON!

2.1Ad: Experiment, plan, and make multiple works of art and design that explore a personally meaningful theme, idea, or concept.

Where do you see the ideas of preliminary works as being a strong help in the making of your art?

“We’ve gotten to the point where we think the camera can capture anything at all…Well, it can’t really. The camera can’t compete with painting at all. The paintings are much more vivid about the place than photographs are.” – David Hockney
