#Making #Art as the #Week #Ends – #Thursday in the #Studio

“Nobody tells this to people who are beginners, I wish someone told me. All of us who do creative work, we get into it because we have good taste. But there is this gap. For the first couple years you make stuff, it’s just not that good…” Ira Glass


Drawing: Tomorrow – MID CRIT – What do you have to show?

2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.

  • SELF-MID CRIT – Step back and take a minute and look at the works together (pairs? threes?). Think about the words said Monday . What is one thing your and your classmate say about your works NOW. Write your and your classmates thoughts down in your RUBRIC – MID-CRIT pages so that you can THINK ABOUT it LATER.

Reflection / Evaluation: Write down one comment about YOUR WORK that you feel will help yourself with your work as you move forward
