#Tuesday in the #ArtStudio and #MrKorb is nowhere to be found.

Generally speaking, when I am gone  – things run a lot faster and smoother in the art studio. I am not here to over-explain things. That said, I’ve included a couple of videos to help you get yourself on track. Studio Art 360 – the DEMO video is a GREAT one of dealing with a few examples – we will start out with our shoes and move on from there. Thanks for all the hard work and I will see you on Wednesday! – Korb


Drawing: Still Life and the ROUGH Drawing

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

This is the DAY of ROUGHS. This is the day to spend the ENTIRE PERIOD working out the FINAL DRAWING idea as a large final idea drawing – full page of the sketchbook – 46 minutes of FOCUSED DRAWING. This drawing is COLLECTED at the end of the hour so I can look it over and give it some feedback. I hope you DRAW. We will have a demo tomorrow on  creating of the book pages with glue. How are you going to work this into your drawing? Thinking of the edges of the books? how are you defining the edges of forms DIFFERENTLY now than you have in the past? How are you thinking about the idea of COMPOSITION now that it has been spoken about?

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

What do you feel is the value of practicing in a sketchbook? How can you see this as being a place that others (engineers, designers, architects, artists) might need as a valuable tool?

Sketchbook Assignment: Watch the video above to get a feel for the technique. As you draw – GO SLOWLY and work SILENTLY. Only let your hand move at the pace you eyes are travelling over the object (Shoe, Hand, Face…).

Sketchbook Assignment – Continuous Line Contour Drawings: We are going to use a single line to create observation based drawings of objects that we make use of and really think we understand. Start with your hand (4 minutes), then move onto your shoe (4 minutes), then using a mirror try your face (4 minutes), a volunteer of a classmate and their face – (4 minutes then SWITCH). If you want to do two sets of hands or two sets of shoes – go ahead. This sketchbook day WILL TAKE THE ENTIRE HOUR.

Open your HANDBOOK to page 10 and in the GREY BOX answer these questions: What were the BIGGEST Challenges and struggles you faced with this drawing? Were you able to work SLOW? I hope so. yo? Are you going to take it home and REFINE it?


AP Studio Art: Don’t forget to STAY FOCUSED – 25 works due MONDAY!

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.

I really want LITTLE pre-thinking – just work-time today. Lay out the works you have so far and then look. What’s working what’s not? Go get to work!

Last Day of the Quarter and #School’sCancelled for the Day.

With a phone call from Mr. Foster this morning at 6:00 – we all learned that SCHOOL’S OUT for the day. Well… There is still work to be done.

  • Locker clean out will happen after hours on exam day.
  • Extra Credit in character will be available for everyone who wants to help out in the afternoons of exam day.
  • Paintings that need completing – after exams if you need it – otherwise CALL ME and we will figure something out. 
  • Would I rather be in school – you bet. Are you happy we do not have school – I am sure you are.
  • Contact me if there is anything you need from me about your artwork.

Thanks – 

Mr. Korb

The End Has Come – #PleinAir #Paint #Draw on your own

That’s it folks… Summer School is OVER. I am really happy with the work that has been created over the past four weeks. I would venture to bet, if I were a betting man, that this was the most work some of you have done in the shortest period of time. That tells me that one needs to make a LOT of art and not focus on ONE work… well… in some cases make a lot of work but in other cases… persistence and sticktoitiveness is important.

I think about the Studio Habits of Mind as the artists were out there and appreciate all the work that was demonstrated. I am curious about how those thoughts and ideas stuck with the young artists as they worked out in the real world. Developing Craft, Observing, Reflecting,  and Engaging and Persisting are some that really stand out to me as being some of the habits that really stood out. All of the SHoM, if the artists were to sit back and really look at the ideas they were working with, were with them everyday – and to see the development in all the artists is a great thing to see. Now… did all the artists take away the same level of learning, experience, development… of course not. But they all did take some away.

This link will take you to see the many photographs that were made during the 4 weeks of Plein Air Art in the Waterford (and Spring Green) area from this past summer. Enoy.

PLEIN AIR STATE FAIR OPPORTUNITY – If you are interested – and I hope some of you are – the Wisconsin State Fair is having their SECOND Plein Air Art Opportunity. The cost is $35 and you get 4 tickets to the fair. You need to supply you own materials and the day is yours to paint. You DO need to have something to show – framed and ready to share – but this is a GREAT resume builder and day to paint. READ THE RULES and be ready to PAINT!
