Third Day in the #Studio and what have you got to show? LOTS!

Agnes Martin talks about the meaning of what art is, “Art is the concrete representation of our most subtle feelings.” In the first number of works ALL of our artists are completing we are working on the subtle feelings, the observation, the study of life… objects, lines, personal feelings and spaces. What are you doing to explore your own worlds? Go ahead – try our Sol LeWitt Exercise


Drawing: How do we begin the ideas of a stack of books – with THUMBNAILS – 5 of them.

Express: Learning to create works that convey an idea, a feeling, or a personal meaning.

Look at the thumbnails from last week and discuss with a neighbor what is working in the composition and what is not.

Can you keep your studies SIMPLE and ELEGANT? This is STILL a lot of OBSERVATION and CONCENTRATION. https://i.pinimg.com/736x/5b/7c/03/5b7c035bbfce544ad045afe8580a2d45–drawing-lessons-drawing-techniques.jpg
