LAST DAY WITH Ceramics. If there is ONE LESSON you take away from this experience… what would that be?

“No matter how many goals you have achieved, you must set your sights on a higher one.” – Jessica Savitch

Target with 4 Faces… What does the target do? What do the faces mean? 1000 Points if you let me know your thoughts… (The points are for bragging rights only). http://www.moma.org/collection_images/resized/148/w500h420/CRI_80148.jpg

Art Foundations: Last 1/2 hour to work… Are you coming in after school to pick up pastels?

AP Studio Art: 1 Drawing today – 20 minute reclining figure – How about looking at a Henry Moore instead of the Mary Cassatt.

How did Henri Moore work the figures from the REAL to the SCULPTURAL? https://korbartwuhs.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/f0316-sculpturedrawings.png

Goals:

  1. 2.3 create artworks that solve visual challenges – ANSWER THIS: What has been the BIGGEST CHALLENGE you have faced with the idea / activity of the figure drawing? How will you handle 20 minutes today?

How did things go today? Look at everyones drawings and make comments about their figure drawings in their binders.

What did you hope to gain from yesterday? What do you hope to gain from today?

While in class we set goals in class based on the N.V.A.S. and the N.E.T.S… let’s take a look at our individual picture for a moment. Please think about the larger goal (NVAS) that is presented, but write out what we were hoping to gain from these experiences. It is always good to “look into the rear view mirror” to see who we were that made us who we are. Challenging to really see perhaps, but always good to think about and reflect upon.

“No matter how many goals you have achieved, you must set your sights on a higher one.” – Jessica Savitch

Go Waterford! I don’t think that was what Jasper Johns had in mind when he painted his green target. https://korbartwuhs.files.wordpress.com/2014/03/ae31e-johns_jasper_green_target_2.jpg

AP Studio Art: Great to be a GROUP again… Let’s draw MORE of US!

HIT YOUR TARGET – If you miss – shoot again!

What goals have you set for yourself? Are they BIG and BOLD? Are they small and subtle? Regardless as to the goals you have, make them attainable – but not too easy… you may get bored, and not too difficult… you may get frustrated. Just make them a smidge out of reach so you have to stretch!

“No matter how many goals you have achieved, you must set your sights on a higher one.” – Jessica Savitch
