AP Studio Art – CRIT TIME!

Tonight at MIDNIGHT CHAPTER 6 is due in Art and Fear Blog. Who’s NOT READING?

Even Vincent Van Gogh – a man head of his time – but not appreciated in his time – used a sketchbook to paint the works that seem to be so spontaneous.

Goals:

  • 2.1Ad: Experiment, plan, and make multiple works of art and design that explore a personally meaningful theme, idea, or concept.
  • What can you talk to Mr. Korb about regarding your new works in concentration? Take a moment and write out a brief thought. Let’s get focused.

How did / are your new ideas coming along? Any PROBLEMS that you see coming up right away? 

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