#Wednesday and you are Making #Art – We Hope

Of the works, skills, information you wrote about earlier in the week (above) write out a timeline for the next 5 days that will allow you to really work out the changes, skills, mastery so that you can (by mid-week next week) turn in the changes for a stronger demonstration of the learned skills. (All late and missing work will be DUE on the FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL NEXT WEEK.)

Art is the product of process. “Whether conceptual, experimental, emotional, or formal, the process you develop yields the image you produce. The materials you choose, the methods of production, and the sources of the images should all reflect the interests that command your attention. The process does not stop with each work completed. It is ongoing. The cumulative result of that process is a body of work.” Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School

#Monday and #Critiques and #Sculpture and #Minimalism

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:

1. Listen In: Listen to your intuition and capture your new ideas. Whether from your morning shower, nighttime dreams, when running, in the car, or in nature, keep an idea notebook and jot it down.

2. Mind Your Mindset: When you start something new, you can either choose to put yourself down and succumb to the inner critic (fixed mindset) or enjoy the process of creation (growth mindset).
