What are 2 skills you have already that are going to make your experiences in Advanced Drawing easier? Janet Fish: 

ASSIGNMENT FOR WEDNESDAY – Fast Food Bags and Packaging for first still life drawing.


AP Studio Art: Hands and Still Life – Photography – Let’s CRIT first!

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

What is ONE THING you really want to explain about the work you have created regarding the Art and Fear Chapter you chose. Write this out so you have a starting place to talk when you explain your work.

What 2 things are you most pleased with regarding the works you see / made out Art and Fear? ASSIGNMENT – Symbolism and BREADTH – You need to bring in a couple of still life objects that can easily be held in your hand (which will be photographed and then printed) to practice the ideas of observation. What have you got that you can bring in that helps to really tell about yourself, your interests, your passions? The practice of the still life – observation – is a skill that readers (AP and the rest of the art viewing world) recognize as important to the building of the skills of an artist. How can you demonstrate those skills? Many drawings? One Drawing? How can you use the time to really build your BREADTH?
