#MidWeek in the #Studio – but it’s only #Day2!

I hope that as we move along in the ART MAKING process – you are able to understand why we are creating what we are creating and how as artists we have gotten to the point we are at in contemporary art. The ideas at times seem simple but the ideas that they are based on are deep. Line, perspective, simple objects… all have a deeper history than simply the ideas of a high school art teacher working to help you push a pencil across paper. Let’s take a look at the ideas that move us toward intriguing and thought provoking art. Have you found us on Facebook? Twitter? Subscribed via Remind? Subscribed HERE?


What is Art? Anges Martin “Art is the concrete representation of our most subtle feelings.” Art In America (p.124, 1996)


Drawing: What did we start yesterday with PERSPECTIVE? Can you remember the ideas? How about some VIDEOS on the process?

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

Most young artists work with their FIRST idea and that’s it. What might the benefit be to begin with MORE ideas? When you sketch in your binders / homework… where do you mostly get your ideas from?  How do you define OBSERVATION?

An observed STACK of BOOKS – not much different than what you are going to be working at. https://korbartwuhs.files.wordpress.com/2016/09/3984244810_ae2be970dd_z.jpg

What do you hope to come up with this year in Drawing? What do you feel you will be able to improve on regarding the skills you have currently?


Studio Art 360: Lines are EVERYWHERE! What artists use LINE to create the work they do? Keith Haring. Sol LeWitt. Andy Warhol. David Hockney. Alice Neel. And SO MANY MORE. We are thinking about the line as a line however.

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

What is a balance? What is a pattern? What kinds of LINES are we using? What patterns and balance are you drawn to?

What challenges did you have in the ideas of drawing out a pattern – repeat the simple image over and over and over?

Line Drawing Website: http://www.studentartguide.com/articles/line-drawings

MassMOCA Sol LeWitt: http://massmoca.org/sol-lewitt/


AP Studio Art: One object 25 times? Yes. And the more you can be interested in it as YOUR object the more interesting it is going to be.

2.2Ad: Demonstrate understanding of the importance of balancing freedom and responsibility in the use of images, materials, tools, and equipment in the creation and circulation of creative work.

What materials are you NOT using yet? Make sure that in the body of work you are making (about 1 object) you try things you are not comfortable with. How are you going to PRESENT this in the end? You need to THINK about the process and the product

38b06984d5f7125c88d0c2ecf5985a73-drawing-projects-art-projects
What is THIS object and how has the artist chosen to make it an interesting STUDY over a long period of works? If we have 25 to complete in 10 days, how many do you need to work out each day? https://i.pinimg.com/736x/38/b0/69/38b06984d5f7125c88d0c2ecf5985a73–drawing-projects-art-projects.jpg

What mediums are you afraid of using. If not afraid – haven’t used because you are not used in the past?

#WELCOME BACK! #2017-18 Year is HERE!

Welcome back to the school year. I really look forward to all the classes and art that were going to experience together. I hope to use this website as a place for communicating ideas and talking about art as well as a place to help you know where we are in the studio. I hope you enjoy the year as much as I will. Make sure you follow this site to get the frequent updates and also follow ArtWithKorb on facebook and Twitter the #Artwithkorb. Now, let’s go make art.

What is Art? Anges Martin “Art is the concrete representation of our most subtle feelings.”

#YouTube #Answer to ascash93 – #Pyramid #Roofs – and MORE on #Perspective in #Art

Hello All (and especially acash93) – I got an inquisitive question about roof design from acash93 on YouTube this morning (hello again) and rather than a simple reply (which they did get back from me and a redirect to here) I drew out the explanation for a better understanding. I hope this helps.

If you are interested in seeing more explanations of drawing in perspective, please visit more of my videos on my YouTube Channel Instructional Videos HEREhttps://goo.gl/8lT00x or on my website to the right of the screen near the bottom – Videos and Prezis.

“In not stating the goal to the students and wording them so they are understandable… it is like a family going on a trip with Dad in the driver’s seat and him not sharing what the destination is or how long the trip is going to take. Dad knows where he’s going, but the rest of the family has no clue.” – Frank Korb

Oh NO! What SHALL WE DO? It is all part of the journey! http://cdn.mos.totalfilm.com/images/n/national-lampoons-christmas-vacation-3339-p-1374489086-645-75.jpg
