#Drawing Week #Monday in the #Studio

#2 Learn to draw. Drawing is more than a tool for rendering and capturing likenesses. It is a language, with its own syntax, grammar, and urgency. Learning to draw is about learning to see. In this way, it is a metaphor for all art activity. Whatever its form, drawing transforms perception and thought into image and teaches us how to think with our eyes.

Join us in the Cafeteria this week for a little bit of COLLABORATIVE work on a BIG ART PROJECT!

AS WE BEGIN THE WEEK: Look back to page 12 in our folder and rewrite your statement about the Artists Habits of Mind. That is it. I want you to be thinking about the techniques that we, as artists, need to be aware of and focus on as we move forward in our studio practices.

Studio Art 360: Drawing

What was the biggest challenge you found as you began to draw with PENCIL and VALUE last week?

1956-2

Youth Frontiers with the Sophomores at Waterford Union High School Stand up (and dance) for RESPECT (take 2)

Youth Frontiers is a nonprofit, non-partisan organization that partners with schools to build positive communities where students thrive socially, emotionally and academically. Our vision is to change the way kids treat each other in every hallway, lunch line and classroom of every school in America. Bring Youth Frontiers to your school.

Our long and exhausting day with Dan and KK – it was AWESOME and an Adventure. I, and the rest of the group, were pooped at the end of the day! Thanks Guys! I only wish I’d have gotten some feedback from the kids about the experience they took away from the day. Personally, I know that I have a direction I am focused on over the next year (lifetime I hope) and walked away with a better understanding of others.

Dan the Guitar Player and Retreat Presenter

Dan is a singer/songwriter from Detroit who moved to Minneapolis when he was 18 to pursue a career in music. Seven years later, he has released three albums and has traveled all over the United States playing different venues and festivals.

In 2009, Dan came across a volunteer position at Youth Frontiers, and since then has come on board as a Retreat Staff Musician. He shares his music on retreat, and considers it a blessing to be able to work with an organization that allows him to pursue his passion and make a difference at the same time.

KK (Kesiah) a bundle of Retreat Energy and Marathon Madness

KK (Kesiah)

Kesiah, Retreat Director, has been with Youth Frontiers since 2007, though it feels as through it has been a part of her life since Junior High when she was a student on a YF Courage Retreat. She returned to work with YF as a high school leader, thus starting her career at YF.

She grew up in Forest Lake, Minn., with nine siblings, and when she wasn’t changing a younger sibling’s diaper or feeding them a bottle, she found her fun playing sports and participating in performance arts. After changing thousands of diapers, she felt that it was appropriate to devote her life to working with youth… and not just to be sure that their diapers were dry and the babies happy. Kesiah considers working with kids a privilege and she is delighted to walk into work everyday knowing that she gets to make a difference in the world.

Kesiah attended the University of St. Thomas where she studied Social Work and Political Science. In her spare time she loves playing and watching sports, running and doing anything outdoors. She also loves to cook for just about anyone.

April 20, 2013 – Saturday – Hello Art Evaluation SwapMeet!

Visual Art GOALS and OBJECTIVES

National Visual Arts Standards – Standard 1
Understanding and applying media, techniques, and processes

Frank Korb

There are 6 OVERARCHING GOALS that all of my art students work toward and focus on during the year in all of my art classes. The goals are referred to on a daily basis and are been modified, but not “dumbed down,” from the National Standards for the Visual Arts so that they make more sense to the students who are working with them through their art making and other art experiences.

The use of GOALS in my classroom (in any classroom for that matter) is an essential part of the process of running a high energy and well planned / focused classroom. The introduction of the GOALS, and the interaction of the student with that goal, literally fires up and activates the neurons in the brain and gets the young artist (student, teacher, whomever) focused on the work that will be undertaken. This OPENS THE FOLDER to learning.

This is the first of  six weeks that we will be looking at and unpacking the goals so that they are more easily understood. It is important to note that, when the goals are given to the students, they are restructured (a smidgen) so that they are meaningful and pertinent to the day’s activity. Notice, they are not agenda items but rather bigger thinking topics.

The National Standards for the Visual Arts have been developed into a series of GOALS that are clear, measurable, observable, and understandable to the students, parents, and community. The use of goals is to keep the mind open to the idea of learning and focused on the act of learning, By combining both declarative (mind) and procedural (application) knowledge the intentionality is focused on the combination of art theory and art making as well as the investigating the close relationship between the two.

~~~

Standard #1: Understanding and applying media, techniques, and processes
As an art student you will demonstrate the ability to:

  • 1.1 apply media, techniques, and processes with
    • 1.1.1 skill
    • 1.1.2 confidence
    • 1.1.3 and awareness so that your ideas are executed well
  • 1.2 create art that demonstrates an understanding of how your ideas relate to the
    • 1.2.1 materials
    • 1.2.2 techniques
    • 1.2.3 and processes you use
  • 1.3 communicate ideas clearly
  • 1.4 create, define, and solve visual challenges using
    • 1.4.1 analysis (breaking up the artwork / subject matter to basic elements)
    • 1.4.2 synthesis (put all the parts of a work together to form a whole)
    • 1.4.3 evaluation [critique] (formative and summative reflections about your artwork)

~~~

One last note about the day to day activities in the class and GOALS specifically is that when we wrap up the class – the last couple of minutes, we take time to reflect, to GENERALIZE the relationship to the goals and the day’s work. This is the CLOSING THE FOLDER that allows the neurons to settle down and pack away the learning, the experiences, until the following day.

You can find these (and more) in my Visual Arts Handbook HERE.

Thanks –

Frank

April 19, 2013 – Friday – Welcome to Community Day!

Art Foundations: Final day to wrap up the cityscape drawings. Use your time wisely!

Where are you? Where is the horizon line? How does this relate to you? How do you, as the viewer, relate to the city?

GOALS:

  1. 2.1 Form criticism about 2 point perspective drawings that work to accomplish personal meanings.
  2. 5.3 Describe meanings of artworks by analyzing 5.3.1 techniques of linear perspective.

Cityscape Instructions HERE.

COLOR WHEEL:

Here is the color wheel I promised…
In your journal section of the Goals Sheets… What is the one area that you are the most proud as you look at and explore your city? What do you need to review for yourself when it comes time for the final drawing at exam time? Color is coming up next… we will get to know this color wheel well.
~~~Drawing: How did your eyes and mouth go yesterday? Today we will be drawing Daryl’s favorite facial feature… the ear!

Yum!

GOALS:

  1. 3.3 describe the creation of ears, the ideas behind drawing them, and explain why the skill of observation is of value
  2. 1.4 create, define, and solve visual challenges of the ears (from various angles) using 1.4.1 analysis (breaking up the artwork / subject matter to basic elements)

What was the most difficult part of your drawing today? What have you SEEN as being different that you though it would have been? What is different in drawing the ear than you found in drawing the MOUTH and EYES? What was it that made it so different?

How proud of your work are you? How much fun are you having with the body of work you have produced? What did you GAIN from all the reflection yesterday?

GOALS:

  1. 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 else have you got to do with the body of work you have produced? How many works have you in each of the 3 categories? What do you need to continue working on? MONDAY… prepare yourself for a work that will test your CHARACTER!
