#Thursday – SO SOON!

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.”

Stained Glass:  Curved Shapes and PERFECTION

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

Ease of cutting? Challenges of cutting? Planning of the process is REALLY important – make sure you are thinking things through. Are you able to make strong cuts and easy breaks with the tools?

CIaD: Letters and Logos

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

Working on paper is different than working on the computer. Using a collection of FONTS that you can choose (we will look at these in the Adobe Illustrator Font Collection) you will find a wide variety of fonts that you enjoy and explore many different way of joining letters into positive and negative shapes (as well as adding a geometric or organic shape or two) in creating a Logo Design  for yourself” This will take some time – be ready to SKETCH and EXPLORE ideas.

AP Studio Art: The View

1.2Ad: Choose from a range of materials and methods of traditional and contemporary artistic practices, following or breaking established conventions, to plan the making of multiple works of art and design based on a theme, idea, or concept.

3 things you need to examine and work in a stronger fashion so that the message is clear.

Adv. Drawing: Still Life

4.2Ad: Critique, justify, and present choices in the process of analyzing, selecting, curating, and presenting artwork for a specific exhibit or event.

Step back from your drawing and write out two things you see that are in need of attention FIRST! WRITE them down and then write down the WHY they need attention.

Turn to the second set of pages in your rubric packet and get together with a friend – consider this a mod critique (sort of) and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the work you have in front of you. In the space provided in the RUBRIC write out your thoughts about the good, the bad, and the ugly WITH EXPLANATION. Are you STRONG, GOOD, BASIC, WEAK, or POOR – WHY? Execution, Composition, and Character – all 3.


If you haven’t filled this out – make sure to do so by the end of the week:
