#Friday on a #Thursday #YEAH! What are you working on this #Weekend?

Here are the top 10 lessons learned from Sara’s Blakely’s journey from fax machine saleswoman to entrepreneurial superstar:

7)      You CAN figure it out you have the ability.  Sara knew absolutely nothing about women’s undergarments, patenting a new product, manufacturing, marketing, product development, website development, online commerce, and more.  But that didn’t stop her. She researched what she needed to, hired out what she couldn’t do, and marched forward with undying commitment and energy. Don’t stop yourself from pursuing an idea because you don’t think you have what it takes.

8)      You can build a billion dollar business starting with $5,000.  Sara had only $5,000 in savings on that fateful day when she cut the feet off of her stockings in order to wear them under her white pants for a more flattering look (and thus, realized the world needed a new undergarment product that would be comfortable yet flattering to the female form).  From that $5,000 she embarked on designing a prototype, securing a manufacturer, naming the product, legally protecting her product, and getting the word out to potential buyers.  You don’t have to be rich to move forward with your fabulous new idea.

Reflection: From the conversation you had… what are things you HEARD from others that might help you get rolling on a SOLID and SUCCESSFUL image on Monday? If you need to RESOLVE your image over the weekend… do so.

Studio Art 360: Sculpture – WRAP IT UP!

#4DaysOfArt – What can we do?

Here are the top 10 lessons learned from Sara’s Blakely’s journey from fax machine saleswoman to entrepreneurial superstar:

1)      Fail Big – Sara’s beloved father followed Wayne Dyer’s guidance in teaching his children the power of failing big.  Each day, her father would ask – “So, what did you fail at today.” And if there were no failures, Dad would be disappointed.  Focusing on failing big allowed Sara to understand that failure is not an outcome, but involves a lack of trying — not stretching yourself far enough out of your comfort zone and attempting to be more than you were the day before.   Failing big was a good thing.

2)      Visualize it – Sara is a big fan of “visualizing” your big goal, in specific, concrete ways.  She saw herself clearly on the Oprah TV show 15 years before it happened.  She simply knew it would happen.  She’d see in her mind’s eye sitting on the couch with Oprah having an exciting conversation, and wondered, “What are we talking about?”  The rest was just “filling in the blanks” to get there.

#MidWeek #WorkDay #MakeArt

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:

5. Happiness Spurs Innovation: Sadness inhibits innovative ideas, causing people to exercise more restraint, but happiness expands creative thinking, fresh associations and new perspectives. Remember to take a break and make time for fun! You’ll come back refreshed.

6. Gratitude Rules: Being grateful for where you’re at and “taking in the good” helps sculpt your brain’s neural pathways to receive more of it. Imagine what you are creating. Like an athlete training for peak performance when you visualize something special, your can embody it even more.

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:

 

3. Get in the Flow: Focus on the moment rather than the goal. When you are totally immersed in a creative activity, when hours feel like moments, you open to tapping into something bigger than yourself. Let it flow through you.

4. Let Your Senses Come Alive: Notice not only how things look, but how they feel in your hand, how they smell, the sounds surrounding you, even the nuances of taste. Don’t forget to listen to your gut — that’s an important sense too!

Drawing: MUSIC and ART!

Reflecting on the ARTS! http://i.huffpost.com/gen/530364/JH.jpg

Goals:

  • 3.1Ac: Engage in constructive critique with peers, then reflect on, re-engage, revise, and refine works of art and design in response to personal artistic vision.
  • LAST day with our Crit. What is KEEPING you from COMMENTING if you are NOT commenting – What makes it EASY for you to comment if you Are?

Reflection: Looking BACK on the past 3 days of critique – what are 3 things you took away from the process? We Reflected A LOT! Be READY to DRAW tomorrow!

Studio Art 360: Sculpture.

Tony Smith – Matthew Marks and MoMA: http://www.moma.org/collection_images/resized/128/w500h420/CRI_229128.jpg

Goals:

  • 2.2P: Explain how traditional and non-traditional materials may impact human health and the environment and demonstrate safe handling of materials, tools, and equipment.
  • What can you use from the process we went through YESTERDAY to continue to create a CUBE, CYLINDER, and a pyramid? Do you want to work on ALL of them at the same time or are you going to finish one and then move onto the next?

Reflection: What was the most difficult part of the building today for YOU? How can you use those challenges to develop your skills?

AP Studio Art: CONCENTRATE!

What’s the PROCESS of your ART? http://www.studentartguide.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/as-art-sketchbook.jpg

Goals:

  • 2.6 create multiple solutions to visual challenges that show understanding in relationships between composition and meaning of artwork.
  • While looking at your studio-mates work, how do  you see the works needing to GROW? Do you see  yours growing?

Reflection: What have you come up with? What materials are you planning on using? How does it fit into your current body of work? 

Advanced Drawing: Critique! PAPER for TOMORROW!

Watching Keith Haring MAKE a painting – different than seeing a finished painting. http://www.abc.net.au/reslib/201208/r997208_11061456.jpg

Goals:

  • 3.1Ac: Engage in constructive critique with peers, then reflect on, re-engage, revise, and refine works of art and design in response to personal artistic vision.
  • One day and a WEEKEND away from the Crit – REVIEW YOUR GOALS from last Thursday and Write out 1 thing that you found beneficial from taking a step back and TALKING about your art.

Reflection: Looking BACK on the past 3 days of critique – what are 3 things you took away from the process? We Reflected A LOT! Be READY to think about making art tomorrow! This is going to be YOUR DRAWING! What can you bring in? A BOOK you can destroy, paper you might want to work on that is different than DRAWING paper (phone book, OLD dictionary, falling apart other book that is NOT important to the family, letterhead from a hotel, notepaper with text on it, old math notes, what ELSE can you think of? 50 sheets!)
