End of the week and you have a small series of works that are all tied together. Name three things that you planned on doing to make this a series of works. How did you accomplish this idea that you set out to accomplish?


  • Anchor Standard 10: Synthesize and relate knowledge and personal experiences to make art.
  • Enduring Understanding: Through art-making, people make meaning by investigating and developing awareness of perceptions, knowledge, and experiences.
  • Essential Question(s): How does engaging in creating art enrich people’s lives? How does making art attune people to their surroundings? How do people contribute to awareness and understanding of their lives and the lives of their communities through art-making?

Alright – One day in and 2 more to go – 6 hours. What are your plans for the day? How do you see the works CONNECTING to one another to create a SERIES of works that relate to one another? This is what we, as artists, do to make a body of work. This is our plan for the week.

Continue of the plans of works for the week and shoot for the series. You are choosing the works and places, materials and ideas. This is all up to you.

What are three things that you see yourself doing to keep the works tied together? Important folks.

Welcome to #PleinAir #SummerStudio!

Week 1: Mix it Up – Let’s Try a bit of everything Pencil, Pastels (Oil and Soft), Conté, Charcoal, Watercolor, and Acrylic (for those returning).

“Everything in nature is harmony; a little too much, or else too little, disturbs the scale and makes a false note. One must reach the point of singing true with the pencil or with brush quite as much as with the voice; rightness of forms is like rightness of sounds.” – Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres


I am really excited to be getting together with you all this summer to do some painting and drawing and making of art outside (plein air). Thank you for enrolling in this summer studio experience. This is all about having fun and experiencing new approaches and ideas. I am well planned for this and there are specific things I do want you to walk away with, so be patient with me and know I have plans. That said… be ABSOLUTELY FREE to try new ideas of your own. None of you are married to a style or technique yet so be ready to make new and exciting work.


G: Develop Craft: Learning to use tools, materials, artistic conventions; and learning to care for tools, materials, and space.

Today we will get out and try a few different mediums. The goal will be to get 4 or 5 works done in the short amount of time we have together. Out in the Environmental Center with pencils, watercolors, colored pencils, oil and soft pastels. Of these… which materials are you most drawn to? Which do you struggle with the most? Watch Mr. Korb for a smidge and then we’re off to the races.

Working outside with no set assignment in mind just 4 – 5 works of art and a variety of materials End with a quick conversation and outline of the rest of the summer.
