Goals for the Day: Tues. Dec. 10

Intro to Art: Final Lined Shapes Composition

I can:

  • Create my composition using the plan I previously created
  • Refer to previously learned techniques to carry out my ideas visually on a final piece.

As you get you plans back, make sure that you are aware of how the lines will interact with the axes you created.  While it may have seemed like all you were doing was drawing shapes, you were really creating something much more complex considering the multiple steps that are need to create these forms.

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:

  • create a grid that better explains the interaction of various watercolors with each other
  • maintain a high level of consistency in my watercolor work

Keeping pace with our last class, we will be taking a look at what each of these colors actually do when overlapped with another color.  Remember, this is painting should be viewed as a tool, rather than just work.  You can refer to this when making decisions on color for future paintings.

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:

  • Properly identify the characteristics of using a new tool (pen)
  • Manipulate the tool in ways that my desired outcome is actually reached

Pen and ink day.  No it’s not Inktober, but pretty close.  We will be spending some time using pen to create a variety of textures.  While this tool can be simple, using it in a way that creates a specific outcome may be difficult at first.  Stay the course and concentrate on the process.

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.
