#Thursday and #Back to the #ArtMaking

#13 Each generation gets to reinvent art in its own image. Because art is an act of description, it is inevitable that what it describes will reflect every generation’s bias of the moment. It is not a strict reflection of a time but an interpretation rendered in a language that is always in a state of transformation. Kit White 101 Things I Learned in Art School


Drawing: Research Day – Let’s get into Google Classroom

4.2Ac: Analyze, select, and critique personal artwork for a collection or portfolio presentation.

Through the use of Google Classroom and the Documents / Video / Questions that have been created – research a member of the German Expressionist movement and discover how marks were made, images were created, faces were presented, and you are drawn into the works of the artists. – GOOGLE CLASSROOM – See Mr. Korb’s board for class log-in information.

You have until 11:59 on SUNDAY to finish this Google work. In class drawing up ideas and getting things started for the portrait tomorrow.


Studio Art 360: Mid Crit – Hang up your work on the chalkboard!

8.1P: Interpret an artwork or collection of works, supported by relevant and sufficient evidence found in the work and its various contexts.

As you examine this work of art, what are the larger SKILLS you have developed in the process?  N: SELF and PEER MID Critique. This is a ONE day process. Allow a break in the process to group up IN THE NEW GROUPS and discuss the STRENGTHS and WEAKNESSES / SKILLS of the Pencil Drawing using the RUBRIC that is handed out.

As artists, we are in it for the process of MAKING ART, not necessarily worrying about the finished product. How do you feel about the idea of  PROCESS versus PRODUCT.


AP Studio Art: today we look into the 1) Next Artwork or 2) Work of Art – Season Finale – .

1.1 Ad: Visualize and hypothesize to generate plans for ideas and directions for creating art and design that can affect social change.

What social topics are out there that are important to you and you would like to see impacted by your behavior / action? Let’s have a conversation about that.

Mark Tansey: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_VPLOFeveda8/TOCiCEypYBI/AAAAAAAAAlE/av6BstrUB0Y/s1600/Fig2.jpeg

Mark Tansey (NYTimes Article) is the artist we are going to be looking at and his MONOCHROMATIC works are the impetus for the work. 1/2 week monochromatic drawing based on the work of Mark Tansey – Spin the wheel of adjectives, prepositions and nouns to come up with 10 working titles, build an art historical referenced collage that is referenced from the title and work a small pencil drawing with a monochromatic watercolor wash as a the background. Study the techniques, process and rationale of Mark Tansey. Drawing, painting, pastel, your choice in mediums, techniques, approaches. Collage and Additional Work are final products.

Illustration board and watercolor demo – wash a THIN COLOR over the top, pencil / paint / marker – their choice for the work over the top. Decide upon the social topic and imagery that one might use. Spin the wheel for a title and see how one can make that work as an impetus for the work (3 spins – 1 final title – one can assemble the different spins to come up with the best title).

From your research today, what are your social topic ideas? How are you seeing yourself as a changer in the world through the arts?

Tuesday in the #Studio – Let’s keep moving #Forward with our #art.

Studio Art 360: Sketchbook TUESDAY is ON YOUR OWN – Here’s the rules…

ON YOUR OWN! FOR NEXT TUESDAY! CONSIDER A ROOM – A BUILDING – Something with a sense of DEPTH and Space: Using all of the knowledge you have gained from the first batch of sketches, create a drawing that emphasizes the idea of space, depth, form, perhaps perspective. Consider your understanding of Line, Shape, Form, Texture, and Color to complete this assignment.

10.1P: Document the process of developing ideas from early stages to fully elaborated ideas.

Look at your current still life drawing… Choose an element or principle and describe how you are using it in your still life. Also describe how it is being used successfully or not so much.

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

#Creativity in the #ArtStudio – This is all about #You and your #Efforts

All of the thinking about “Creativity” is about you and how you approach the process and product of your work. Your final product is only part of the the success of your work. What else is it about? The preliminary drawings you make, the attitude you walk into the studio with, the way you approach each and every day. The final work isn’t even the most important part of the work – the PROCESS in the importance of the work. Get to work!
