Happy BREAK! It’s Almost here.

#20 “Clear sight makes clear art.” Observation lies at the heart of the art process. Whether your art derives from mimicking nature or extrapolating a mental construct, your powers of observation are critical. Unless you can see what lies before you, you cannot describe it. Train yourself to eliminate preconceptions and received understandings when observing anything. Try to see what is before you, not what you think you see or want to see.  Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School.

#Midweek #Wednesday – #Grids and #Portraits and #Canvas and #Paint

#90 “You can condense, but you cannot simplify.” —Ann Lauterbach, personal conversation: The world is infinitely complex, and any attempt to simplify, which means the elimination of contradictory elements, will fail to capture that complexity. One can, however, attempt to compress or condense those elements into a more abbreviated or altered form. That is the role of metaphor. Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School



Studio Art 360: Grids on the Canvas and the Drawing and Transfer it up to the Canvas

OK – SCULPTURES – TAKE THEM HOME – Sorry… Decide who wants it. Garbage (Circle File) after today.

 Why (again) is it important for an artist to choose colors CAREFULLY as they are developing a composition / artwork? What might the RIGHT colors for YOU and your PORTRAIT be in this artwork?

You will have the 2 questions about your AP Concentration written – AND PROOFED by a classmate – and then pasted into the CONCENTRATION Portion of your pages. ALSO – You will have a GALLERY of 6 images FROM YOUR CONCENTRATION ITSELF uploaded to the CONCENTRATION PAGE. As a BONUS – you will have up to 6 and no fewer than 3 BREADTH works on your breadth page… I might be making some changes to these pages as we move along so… be prepared to LISTEN CAREFULLY and FOLLOW MY INSTRUCTIONS – I am hoping to streamline the process.

#TuesdayOnTheIsland – of #Art

#78 Self-portraiture has a long and storied history. It is something that most artists undertake in their training. It can yield great revelations of character and technique as in Rembrandt, van Gogh, and Bacon. It will succeed or fail based on its interest as an image. Try to judge it as an image, not as a mirror. Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School

the results r great !! i am actually very impressed that you went beyond –
to make a drawings of the crumble pieces. it is a perfect move –
to show kids the possibilities and open the wide range of vision.
just perfect move!) and next one – as you said seems perfect too –
to the large scale paintings from it. plus it does bring the idea of pop –
using common objects reminding of course of warhol as well as rosenquist paintings

 What are you most anxious about as we begin to think about and use oil paints? Elizabeth Peyton: 

 

Using CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS as your impetus… you will need to RESEARCH a GALLERY ARTIST that is CONTEMPORARY and base your pose on their composition. This might be homework, but it’ll be worth it! http://artviaanderson.weebly.com/theory-and-practice/self-portraits-then-and-now
