Art Foundations: Build your Building, consider TEAMWORK

What are you doing to make your work unique and Frank Gehryesque


  1. 6.3 use the principles and techniques of art as you might if you were an architect or urban designer
  2. 3.1 reflect on how art differs and describe how it relates to history and cultures (how are the buildings you are creating DIFFERENT than the ones you live in and that exist around you?)

On TEAMWORK:  Unity is strength… when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved. – Mattie Stepanek

How are the buildings you are creating DIFFERENT than the ones you live in and that exist around you? What is the PURPOSE of the architecture you are designing? What is successful? What needs change?

Advanced Drawing: HALLWAY with your paper

Get your BIG SHAPES drawn out first. Then onto the oils… but not today!


  1. 1.2 create art that demonstrates an understanding of how your ideas relate to the 1.2.1 materials and 1.2.2 techniques

What was the success in today’s drawing? What was the challenge?

AP Studio Art: Concentration – Adventure Story

Knock Knock Knock…


  1. 2.6 create multiple solutions to visual challenges that show understanding in relationships between composition and meaning of artwork.
  2. 2.4 compare different points of view regarding composition and meaning in artwork (how do your ideas compare as similar or different to those of your classmates?)

What is your plan for accomplishing this amount of work in the short time allowed? What was the struggle you had in the past week? What struggled? What soared? What will you have to do to adjust your working schedule? How’s Art and Fear coming along? I am beginning plans on the NEXT book – and this will be even MORE collaborative… Get into the BLOGGING if you haven’t already.
