Out and About in Waterford

9.1P: Establish relevant criteria in order to evaluate a work of art or collection of works. This is it folks. Last day to make work about you and for you and all chosen by you. I hope that the weather has cooperated this week. Get yourself out there and get to work.

20170705_105451

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?

#Monday with #ArtWork to be done and #NewIdeas to be tackled.

As you listen to your music… what are the colors and shapes (or lines) that come to mind as you move forward? Look over the worksheet about music and work through it.

I try to get you to talk to one another and reflect. Look at each other’s work today and do that. Explain, listen, WRITE DOWN THOUGHTS for your own reflections.

 

 

Finally #Friends – It is #Friday in the #Studio. Keep making #Art!

#17 Drawing is About Mark Making

“Every mark has a distinct character and quality.Every mark is a signature. Variations in pressure and weight is the visual equivalent of intonation. Marks, or lines, of consistent weight or thickness surrounding a figure or object will flatten the image. Tapering or breaking a line in a curve can connote a highlight or make the curve flow. Also, a tentative line will read as such. Give every mark or line authority and make sure it serves a purpose. Try to use only the marks you need.” 101 Things Learned in Art School, Kit White, 2011, MIT Press

Welcome to National Arts and Humanities Month! What day is TODAY?

Studio Art 360: Drawing and Value – How do you match up?

What was the biggest challenge you found as you began to draw your values yesterday and today?

152dbd9e1ced4bbccf1bb4e83805cc96
Still Life of Dennis Mogelgaard and a focus on Value – What can WE do that will make for an interesting still life drawing? https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/564x/15/2d/bd/152dbd9e1ced4bbccf1bb4e83805cc96.jp

What are 2 difficulties that you had in beginning your value drawings today? Remember – DRAWING IS A CHALLENGE – let it be! 

Painting: Personal Reflection and Meaning – and PAINT!

ASSIGNMENT – Due at the END of the watercolor painting assignment October 21, 2016: Artists research on ONE of the following artists for imagery, technique, approach: Winslow Homer, Charles Demuth, Thomas Eakins, Edward Hopper, Dong Kingman, Reginald Marsh, Charles Sheeler, J.M.W. Turner, Thomas Moran, Georgia O’Keefe, James Whistler, or Andrew Wyeth.

How has the gathering of images HELPED or CHALLENGED you in the creation of a composition visually and / or telling a story – about yourself?

hero-moran
Thomas Moran: Landscape – in Watercolor! http://www.denverartmuseum.org/sites/default/files/exhibitions/Media%20browser/hero-moran.jpg

What does your composition say about you? How might others read the images you have gathered and assembled?

http://www.denverartmuseum.org/exhibitions/thomas-moran-s-yellowstone-project-nation

Develop / collect images, consider the ideas about yourself and surroundings. This is going to be a SELF-PORTRAIT of sorts – no that it is going to look like you but rather… the objects and images, surroundings, ideas will be about you.

Drawing: Pencils and Paper and NESTS!

How is the work developing? REMEMBER – Wednesday of NEXT WEEK as a MID-CRIT!

#LastDayOfClass with the #PleinAirPainting class at #Waterford #HighSchool #WI

Plein Air Painting: Last day out there! What are you doing? How do you WRAP IT UP?

  • NVAS: 7.1P: 6.1P: Analyze and describe the impact that an exhibition or collection has on personal awareness of social, cultural, or political beliefs and understandings.
  • Question to begin with: Yesterday you thought about how your 4 weeks of painting have changed your views, maybe even enhanced your view of Waterford. As you continue through the art making experiences, I hope that the “artist’s eye” has really begun to open up in you. No question today… no deep reflection right now… just take an opportunity to consider that idea of “artist’s eye.” I think about it in how we, as artists, see the world through a different set of lenses than others. Please continue working through your painting today and look through those “artist’s eyes.” I lied… How are you seeing things differently today than you were 4 weeks ago.

Thank you for ALL your hard work over these past 4 weeks. Continue to be focused and WORK on your WORK. There is nothing better than working on work to get better at making work. You have all had great successes as well as aspects of the work that has been, well, not so successful – failure may be the better word.
