Back from #Chicago and #TwoDaysLeft – LET’S #Art it up!

“If you don’t like change, you’ll like irrelevance even less”

General Eric Shinseki

Taliesin – Frank LLoyd Wright’s Home and School. A look at my weekend HERE!


What are YOU looking at? I hope it is your artwork.


  • Communication and Collaboration – Students use digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance, to support individual learning and to the learning of others.
  • What are two things that are successful in your artwork? What is one thing that you still need to work on in the drawing (or would change)? What is the color scheme you are using? Share this with your neighbor.
    • TODAY! We are going to 1) make photographs of the work we have RIGHT NOW and 2) go to the COMPUTER LAB (Laptops). Fill out the Google Form and then 3) insert images from today into the GOOGLE DOCUMENT.

Reflection: How  do you feel that starting with a WRITTEN CRITIQUE can help you develop a stronger ORAL critique through the use of the GOOGLE FORM?

Studio Art 360: The Grid – Let’s Review…


  • 1.2P: Shape an artistic investigation of an aspect of present-day life using a contemporary practice of art or design.
  • How is BREAKING the image down to basic shapes going to make the process of creating a memorable and successful work of art easier?

Reflection: What challenges did you have today with the transferring of the portrait up to the canvas? Two struggles?

HERE’s where were headed with this! Andy Warhol at MoMA.

AP Studio Art: Senior Exhibition Time!

Click on the image above to see works by the residents of Waterford Senior Living – these are the works we are going to be INSPIRED by… Working with our hands as they worked with theirs:


  • 2.1Ad: Experiment, plan, and make multiple works of art and design that explore a personally meaningful theme, idea, or concept.
  • Now that we are done with the AP Testing – time to move forward. Looking over the past year and the development of the works you created… what 2 skills did you develop and put into your Art Toolbox over the course of the year?

Reflection: How are you approaching the drawing in your own fashion? 

Advanced Drawing: 

Baby drawing by Jim Dine –


  • 4.2Ad: Critique, justify, and present choices in the process of analyzing, selecting, curating, and presenting artwork for a specific exhibit or event.
  • Having had a day or so away from the critique (and we will wrap up today I HOPE) what 1) observation and 2) Question would you like to make or receive about your work or another artist’s work?

Reflection: How will you carry the skills you have learned in this class forward as you create new and exciting works of art for yourself?
