Intro to Art: Final Lined Shapes Composition

I can:

  • Create a plan for creating a piece of art based on specific guidelines
  • Refer to previously learned techniques to carry out my ideas visually on a final piece.

Pre-planning out an artistic design can be the most frustrating part to creating a new piece of art.  In the end, more students than few remark that without planning out what direction there piece would be heading in, they are not sure how they would ever get finished with anything.

As you use class time to create your plan, think about what you will do during the next 4 class periods to actually complete what you set out to accomplish.

Ceramics: Final Hump Mold Project

I can:

  • Create a plan for a new project by creating a calendar of important dates.
  • Research important information that will be the basis for my new project

We will be starting the final bowl project today, well…maybe not starting, but going over some of the specifics that you will be responsible for completing once the due date comes.  Be aware of your time-table for this project and try not to let it overwhelm you.

Painting: Watercolor Techniques using Salt and Rubbing Alcohol

I can:

  • practice the use a non-traditional art material to experiment with results
  • explain the interactions of various materials to understand what types of results to expect

This is one of the more interesting demonstrations we will work through all year.  The unpredictability of these materials can create such awesome results, most people can’t wait to work with the material.  While we demonstrate how to specifically use these materials listen to your classmates reactions when it comes to reflecting on their results.

Is there anything you can do to better plan or predict what the results may look like when you add these new materials?


Drawing: 2 PT Perspective Observational Drawing

I can:

  • Identify specific characteristics of a perspective drawing.
  • Form criticism about artworks that work to accomplish personal meanings.

Today we will take a look at the various views that were used during last week’s observational sketch.  Some of your drawings may be more technical than others, however every perspective drawing should answer the four questions that are written on the back of your drawing.

Throughout today’s class, make sure you are comfortable with the answers that we go over.  If something doesn’t make sense, ask for a better explanation.
