#Friday #ReadyForTheWeekend? #Work in the #ArtStudio

10 Things CREATIVE people do – Have you ever wondered why some people are more creative than others? Did you ever wish that you had more of that particular gene? The good news is that research shows that happiness and creativity are not only related, they can be developed. Here are 10 ways to jumpstart your creativity, starting now:

9. Learn Something New: By taking a class outside your typical area of interest, you can have a wider range of ideas to draw from and interconnect. Researchshows that connecting in new ways is the basis for all creative thought.

10. Know Your Strengths and Passions: Get to know what makes your heart soar, what makes you feel most alive and energized, and use it as fuel for the creative process.

By nourishing your creative side, you’ll bring happiness not only to yourself but to those around you. You’ll also know what you had inside yourself all along. What do you do to tap into your creativity?

Studio Art 360 – Critique Sketches, Demo Cardboard Constructions, National Visual Arts Standards

Like musical chairs, stop when I say stop and make 5 REAL COMMENTS on 5 different classmates work. What is working? What is NOT working? Last 3 minutes… Read your comments – write a BRIEF response to a classmates comments.

AP Studio Art: 1 week Magazine Article Assignment, 1 week concentration work

Elizabeth Peyton – MoMA Collection! Let’s see the body of work you can see this weekend in NYC! http://www.moma.org/collection/browse_results.php?criteria=O%3AAD%3AE%3A8042&page_number=1&template_id=6&sort_order=1

Goals:

  • 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 Freedoms and Responsibilities did you take as you chose the images / ideas you created?

As we look at your body of works, what is it that ties them all together? What is it that you can see as your voice starting to come out?

Painting: Collage, Critique, Sketch, Research…

Let’s go to NYC! Dwight Moore and his paintings can take us there if we can’t all really go… http://www.dwigmore.com/marsh_exhibit.html

Goals:

  • 2.3Ac: Redesign an object, system, place, or design in response to contemporary issues
  • What have you been considering as you have redesigned the images / composition as you’ve planned out your painting?

Look around at the work collages laid out around the room. See if you can figure out what they may be saying about themselves in the art. Write down a brief description of their work on the stick notes I have provided. Refelct on what has been written and then have a conversation about the meaning… Were you right? DO NOT CRITIQUE the work of a classmate that you have been working next to the whole time… SERIOUSLY!

Create a ONE PAGE PAPER (double spaced, 11 or 12 point Times New Roman, Palatino – Serif-ed type font) that discusses the artists and their works. Use ideas about the work as to what drew you to the work, what styles did you like, what techniques do you appreciate? A small history of the artist and personal reflection. How will you use similar ideas in your work as they did in theirs? Here are the artists to research: Winslow Homer, Charles Demuth, Thomas Eakins, Edward Hopper, Dong Kingman, Reginald Marsh, Charles Sheeler, J.M.W. Turner, Thomas Moran, Georgia O’Keefe, James Whistler, or Andrew Wyeth. PAPER IS DUE ON Friday, September 19, 2014.
