What were the biggest impressions you had from going outside for ideas? What were the most difficult things you felt as you presented your work? Conversation between classmates about the 2 questions for your exam. How does this work relate to your concentration?

Where Does #MrKorb go all the time?

 

I’m in CHICAGO today with the AP Studio Artists and we are looking at THOUSANDS of artworks from all around the world. This gathering of Contemporary Art (maybe some Modern) is called Expo Chicago – the Mid-West’s largest and most important art show of the year. I hope you can make it down there this weekend to see the work. I’ll be back tomorrow – see you then.

Mr. Korb

Drawing: Still Life – TAKE YOUR TIME

Reflect: Learning to think and talk with others about an aspect of one’s work or working process, and learning to judge one’s own work and working process and the work of others.

I trust that you can BEGIN on the FINAL DRAWING – maybe assembling the collage of book pages – and we are going to WORK today.

Open your handbook to page 10 and respond to the following questions: How have you achieved success today? Name 3 things on page 10 in the handbook.


Studio Art 360: Zentangle, Sol LeWitt, Animals

2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan.

How successful did you feel with your ZENTANGLE designs from yesterday?

Remember to glance past these examples from last year – HERE.

SPECIAL NOTE: Today you are going to find an animal or flower ONLINE and use that image for an inside the ZENTANGLE design you started yesterday. Use the drawing you came up with yesterday and then combine it with a new animal or flower. I have examples that you will look at in a moment. This is going to become a COPPER PLATE BAS RELIEF drawing that will be worked up – you need to FOCUS. I am NOT WORRIED!

Open your handbook to page 10 and respond to the following questions: Well now – what were THREE things you were SUCCESSFUL with or that you STRUGGLED with?


AP Studio Art: I really miss you today!

2.2Ad: Demonstrate understanding of the importance of balancing freedom and responsibility in the use of images, materials, tools, and equipment in the creation and circulation of creative work.

As a body / concentration of works, what have you found as interesting, worthwhile for 1) YOU to create and 2) the audience to sit and look at? 3) Holding it together as an intense study of the topic?

This can be SIMPLE BLACK and WHITE. Don’t get LOST in the details all the time. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/1c/36/5e/1c365e21960f7905351d60fea2dd789f.jpg

Monday is the critique – what are things you need to do to FINISH the PROJECT? Lots of DRAWINGS!

 

#MidWeek in the #Studio – but it’s only #Day2!

I hope that as we move along in the ART MAKING process – you are able to understand why we are creating what we are creating and how as artists we have gotten to the point we are at in contemporary art. The ideas at times seem simple but the ideas that they are based on are deep. Line, perspective, simple objects… all have a deeper history than simply the ideas of a high school art teacher working to help you push a pencil across paper. Let’s take a look at the ideas that move us toward intriguing and thought provoking art. Have you found us on Facebook? Twitter? Subscribed via Remind? Subscribed HERE?


What is Art? Anges Martin “Art is the concrete representation of our most subtle feelings.” Art In America (p.124, 1996)


Drawing: What did we start yesterday with PERSPECTIVE? Can you remember the ideas? How about some VIDEOS on the process?

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

Most young artists work with their FIRST idea and that’s it. What might the benefit be to begin with MORE ideas? When you sketch in your binders / homework… where do you mostly get your ideas from?  How do you define OBSERVATION?

An observed STACK of BOOKS – not much different than what you are going to be working at. https://korbartwuhs.files.wordpress.com/2016/09/3984244810_ae2be970dd_z.jpg

What do you hope to come up with this year in Drawing? What do you feel you will be able to improve on regarding the skills you have currently?


Studio Art 360: Lines are EVERYWHERE! What artists use LINE to create the work they do? Keith Haring. Sol LeWitt. Andy Warhol. David Hockney. Alice Neel. And SO MANY MORE. We are thinking about the line as a line however.

2.1P: Engage in making a work of art or design without having a preconceived plan.

What is a balance? What is a pattern? What kinds of LINES are we using? What patterns and balance are you drawn to?

What challenges did you have in the ideas of drawing out a pattern – repeat the simple image over and over and over?

AP Studio Art: One object 25 times? Yes. And the more you can be interested in it as YOUR object the more interesting it is going to be.

2.2Ad: Demonstrate understanding of the importance of balancing freedom and responsibility in the use of images, materials, tools, and equipment in the creation and circulation of creative work.

What materials are you NOT using yet? Make sure that in the body of work you are making (about 1 object) you try things you are not comfortable with. How are you going to PRESENT this in the end? You need to THINK about the process and the product

What is THIS object and how has the artist chosen to make it an interesting STUDY over a long period of works? If we have 25 to complete in 10 days, how many do you need to work out each day? https://i.pinimg.com/736x/38/b0/69/38b06984d5f7125c88d0c2ecf5985a73–drawing-projects-art-projects.jpg

What mediums are you afraid of using. If not afraid – haven’t used because you are not used in the past?

#BEHAVE! I know you will. #WorkHard, #Create

“If I persist, if I continue to try, if I continue to charge forward, I will succeed.” — Og Mandino

“And even if you don’t succeed… there is NOTHING wrong with failure (just get back and try again – and again – and again…).” – Frank Korb

Studio Art 360 – BAS RELIEF SCULPTURE!

Check out this photo – can you click on it and look at the GREAT BAS RELIEF SCULPTURE?

Goals:

  • 1.2P: Shape an artistic investigation of an aspect of present-day life using a contemporary practice of art or design.
  • At what point in this process, and think hard about this, did you finally become comfortable with the process of sculpting to communicate your message about BULLYING?

What is the biggest success you had in the creation of this sculpture? How well do you feel it communicates your message?

Painting and AP Studio Art – PAINT and CONCENTRATE!

Bob Ross made art making look SO EASY… we know the truth – it is a lot of hard work! Get to it!

Goals:

  • Painting: What do you see about your artwork that STANDS OUT to you as needing a bit of work? Is there anything that you are immediately “bothered” by? Is there anything that stands out as “GREAT?” (2.1Ac: Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.)
  • AP Studio Art: What 3 STRENGTHS are you carrying forward into your newest series of concentration pieces? How has your skill improved as you have gotten half-way through the school year. ( 2.2Ad: Demonstrate understanding of the importance of balancing freedom and responsibility in the use of images, materials, tools, and equipment in the creation and circulation of creative work.)

Painting: Biggest, Best parts of the oil painting process for you? Have you got something you’d lean on as a great NEW learned skill or bit of knowledge?

AP Studio Art: What are you going to be working on OVER BREAK to continue to be productive artists?

TUESDAY (yes… tomorrow over break) at MIDNIGHT CHAPTER 7 is due in Art and Fear Blog. Who’s NOT READING? I know that reading isn’t on the top of your list of things to do in this class. If you read and get the work done OVER BREAK – you will hopefully LEARN SOMETHING and demonstrate that in your posts. PARTIAL CREDIT – but some is better than none.

Thanks for the nod towards my thoughts on communicating with Parents, Students and the WORLD on Teach.Com. I appreciate the recognition.
