#Welcome Back #Mr.Korb! We REALLY Missed You (Really?)

#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


As we end the quarter – please look at the skills and ideas you have developed (or may have already had) over these 8 weeks. Pretty impressive? I think so. One of the most common requests I get is to “let us do our OWN thing.” Well… talk about that with your neighbors – What is ONE ARTWORK that you would like to pursue – Anything you want – the sky’s the limit!

Studio Art 360: A bit of still life and a bit of reflection.

As you examine this work of art, what are the larger SKILLS you have developed in the process?

Process Over Product – This is a CHALLENGING concept: https://s3.amazonaws.com/easel.ly/all_easels/45467/Process_over_Product/image.jpg

As artists, we are in it for the process of MAKING ART, not necessarily worrying about the finished product. How do you feel about the idea of  PROCESS versus PRODUCT? 


Critique with the AP Studio Art Class – As an individual, what do you think you are going to struggle with the most in today’s (and tomorrow – and maybe Wednesday’s) Critique.


What one thing did you add to the critique that nobody else did? 


DRAWING: Kandinsky and Color Theory

How are you using geometric shapes in your life? How do you relate meaning to them? What are some shapes that are dominant in your life?

Wassily Kandinsky, Drawing for Etching II. 1916, https://uploads6.wikiart.org/images/wassily-kandinsky/drawing-for-etching-ii-1916.jpg

What NEW ideas might you have had about COLOR and Shape in the art you were creating?


AP Studio Art: Rubrics – 3 of them…

AP Judging Criteria is difficult. how did the conversation go? I’ve included a link HERE to access the blank rubric. Did you, as a group, work with it collaboratively? 3 versions? 2D Design, 3D Design, and Drawing. HERE is the link to the RUBRIC.

Beginning on the FIRST set of 3 works… What is the CENTRAL IDEA behind your concentration? Remember that you need to have a common thread / common theme / CENTRAL IDEA that ties your works together. Work on THIS with me – let’s explore our ideas!
