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

What do you need to do to PRINT this hour or rework your plate to GROUP PRINT? If you are DONE printing – how are you going to use the remainder of the time to prepare a note card for the exam – Look at the HANDBOOK and understand the ELEMENTS and PRINCIPLES, color wheel, grid… One note card is your tool? Think of a question that you might have for me for the end of the class to help you with your questions…

What is ONE QUESTION I can help you with regarding the exam? Do you have any knowledge of the exam… Let’s talk tomorrow!

Advanced Drawing: Work like your ART depends on it!

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

Take a look at your previous week’s works – where did you struggle the most with the idea of the portrait? Where did you succeed the most? How do you use the ideas of chiaroscuro to better define the ideas of form (in the face especially)?

Vermeer: Indoor painting: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a8/Vermeer_-_The_Milkmaid.jpg

What was the most challenging way to draw? Why was this most difficult way to go? What is most important about drawing when it comes to observation? Previous works from past classes. Indoor outdoor images (Vermeer).

#Friday. FINALLY

/4#78 Self-portraiture has a long and storied history. It is something that most artists undertake in their training. It can yield great revelations of character and technique as in Rembrandt, van Gogh, and Bacon. It will succeed or fail based on its interest as an image. Try to judge it as an image, not as a mirror. Kit White 101 Things to Learn in Art School.

Studio Art 360: Grids on the Canvas and the Drawing

How is BREAKING the image down to basic shapes going to make the process of creating a memorable and successful work of art easier?





1 3/8″, 2 3/4″, 4 1/8″, 5 1/2″, 6 7/8″, 8 1/4″, 9 5/8″, 11″, 12 3/8″

What challenges did you have today with the transferring of the portrait up to the canvas? Two struggles?
 are HERE!

What do you think the PROCESS is going to be in how we DUPLICATE the image over to the canvas? What colors are you considering for the portrait?

What part of the process of tracing and transferring the image up to the canvas did you struggle with? Name 2 things that were challenging.

AP STUDIO ART: Figure Drawing

Copy and Paste your LETTERS to the ADVENTURE! authors in THIS DOCUMENT so I have ONE FINAL DOCUMENT. I can go through to make small changes, but make sure you COPY AND PASTE your FINAL LETTER INTO THIS DOCUMENT. Thanks.

Look at the series of works from yesterday… how have you begun to see the figure differently? Are you thinking about the the FORM in a different fashion than you had earlier?

What did taking an entire minute away from your drawings do for you? Harder? Easier? What did you have to do DIFFERENTLY? 

REMEMBER -ASSIGNMENT FOR FRIDAY! THAT’S THE DUE DATE! ON YOUR OWN! NO QUESTIONS ASKED! You will have the 2 questions about your AP Concentration written – AND PROOFED by a classmate – and then pasted into the CONCENTRATION Portion of your pages. ALSO – You will have a GALLERY of 6 images FROM YOUR CONCENTRATION ITSELF uploaded to the CONCENTRATION PAGE. As a BONUS – you will have up to 6 and no fewer than 3 BREADTH works on your breadth page… I might be making some changes to these pages as we move along so… be prepared to LISTEN CAREFULLY and FOLLOW MY INSTRUCTIONS – I am hoping to streamline the process.
