Some of this may be a repeat from yesterday but sometimes we need to…

Where did you have a Calder like sculpture as a child? What was the point or purpose of the sculpture? What was the point or purpose of Calder’s mobiles?

Drawing: CRITIQUE. Do you have a booger like Jerry Saltz did yesterday? How embarrassing!

Cloth – Draped Cloth – Time for a break – I’ll be gone this afternoon and I want us to be on the same page as the other class…

GOALS:

  1. 1.4 create, define, and solve visual challenges using  1.4.1 analysis (breaking up the artwork / subject matter to basic elements)
  2. 3.3 describe the creation of images and ideas and explain why they are of value .

What have you gained from today’s critique? Was it about YOUR work or was it about a classmates work? What is holding you back from talking?

~~~

AP Studio Art: Come up with your OWN goal based on the National Visual Arts Standards (Link Here).

How did Andy Goldsworthy do THIS? Woah!

GOALS:

  1. 3.2 apply subjects, symbols, and ideas in art and use skill to solve visual challenges
  2. What is YOUR goal? Rewrite a National Visual Arts Standard to make it particular to your work. DO IT!

What did you find challenging about setting your own goal for the day? What do you see as the benefits of setting goals for yourself as you begin to make art art with less and less concern for the teacher’s direction and guidance?
