Tuesday in the #Studio – Let’s keep moving #Forward with our #art.

#13 Each generation gets to reinvent art in its own image. Because art is an act of description, it is inevitable that what it describes will reflect every generation’s bias of the moment. It is not a strict reflection of a time but an interpretation rendered in a language that is always in a state of transformation. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

Drawing: Portraits and Photography and the German Expressionists (@MoMA)

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

Take a look at your previous week’s works – where did you struggle? How do you use the ideas of chiaroscuro to better define the ideas of form?

What was the most challenging aspect for you to draw today? Why was this most difficult way to go? What is most important about drawing when it comes to observation?

Studio Art 360: Sketchbook TUESDAY is ON YOUR OWN – Here’s the rules…

ON YOUR OWN! FOR NEXT TUESDAY! CONSIDER A ROOM – A BUILDING – Something with a sense of DEPTH and Space: Using all of the knowledge you have gained from the first batch of sketches, create a drawing that emphasizes the idea of space, depth, form, perhaps perspective. Consider your understanding of Line, Shape, Form, Texture, and Color to complete this assignment.

10.1P: Document the process of developing ideas from early stages to fully elaborated ideas.

Look at your current still life drawing… Choose an element or principle and describe how you are using it in your still life. Also describe how it is being used successfully or not so much.

Step back and admire the strengths and weaknesses of the work you are completing – Mid Crit on Thursday.

AP Studio Art: Last Crit Days – Peregrine Honig

Reflect: Learning to think and talk with others about an aspect of one’s work or working process, and learning to judge one’s own work and working process and the work of others.

Day 2 of final crit with Peregrine Honig. Are you READY to share your work and ideas? I hope so.

Peregrine Honig and Molly talking about the work Molly created.

Seriously – What did you take away from the critique?

#MidWeek – NOPE, already past it. No School on Friday! BUT… #P/TConferences tonight.

Studio Art 360: Shoes and Thumbnails – Pencils and Shadows

2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan.

What skills do you see in yourself that are coming out in the drawing SO FAR? What strengths do you see in your drawing?

What are 2 skills you have already that are going to make your experiences in Studio Art 360 easier?

AP Studio Art: Nature

1.1 Ad: Visualize and hypothesize to generate plans for ideas and directions for creating art and design that can affect social change.

What have you learned from working outside of the box? Outside of your comfort zone? 

Peregrine Honig – Tree – “Work of Art” http://artfcity.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/peregrine-tree.jpg

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?

  • 6.1P: Analyze and describe the impact that an exhibition or collection has on personal awareness of social, cultural, or political beliefs and understandings.

AP Studio Art: Figurative Art –  Richard Diebenkorn

Richard Diebenkorn: http://www.reproduction-gallery.com/catalogue/uploads/1141454024_large-image_1065180426_largeimage.jpg



  • Observe: Learning to attend to visual contexts more closely than ordinary “looking” requires, and thereby to see things that otherwise might not be seen.
  • What is the ONE thing you are learning about the figure at this point? Maybe it is an OBSERVATIONAL thing… Maybe it is something else entirely (look at page 30 in your folder…).

Reflection: Have you explored a new medium? Have you attempted to work with and through a new (or familiar) material in your work? EXPLAIN in THREE SENTENCES. What has it done for your drawing? DUE END OF CLASS TOMORROW – CRIT IS DUE TOO. Last 10 minutes of class.
