Goals for the Day: Thurs. Dec. 3 #2ptperspective #PeaceExchange #Sculpting #demoday

Intro to Art: 2 Pt. Perspective Demonstration

  • Provide evidence through experimentation, practice, and persistence, the demonstration of new skills and knowledge in a chosen art form by following a class demonstration on PERSPECTIVE DRAWING.
  • Write arguments to support claims that your intentions HAVE been carried out using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence by answering the REFLECTION/ EVALUATION question: 

What are two things that you think are going to be challenging in creating a SUCCESSFUL and INTERESTING image using 2 PT Perspective drawing technique(s)?

Yesterday we spent time working through the steps of drawing a basic 2pt perspective drawing when objects lie on the horizon line.  Today we will pick up where we left off and take a look at how this unique perspective needs to be drawn out when an object is below our eye line or above it.


Painting 1: Peace Exchange Artist Statements

  1. Reflect on, re-engage, revise, and refine works of art or design considering relevant traditional and contemporary criteria as well as personal artistic vision.
  2. Correlate responses to works of visual art with various techniques for communicating meanings, ideas, attitudes, views, and intentions.

Before we jump into writing our Artist Statements, I’d like to talk about this experience you had.  How did you feel working on a painting that you had no clue what it would end up looking like?  What types of obstacles did you run into?  Do you feel like you successfully were able to get your meaning across in your work?

Reflection / Evaluation: I had a few expectations from you in regards to responsibilities for receiving a passing grade:

  1. You will enter this adventure with an attitude of goodwill and commitment
  2. You will complete an artistic composition on the provided canvas and have it turned in to me no later than Tues. Dec. 2nd.
  3. You will stick to the theme of peace and inclusion and goodwill
  4. You will do your best with your creation and use my advice regarding your creation in effort to create the highest quality outcome possible.
  5. You will attend the actual PEACE EXCHANGE on the evening of December 10th at 6:00 pm (This event will be held at the Downriver Council for the Arts in Wyandotte)

We will spend the time in class today, working on writing out our artist statements.  Since yesterday, I handed out a hard copy to you, this should be relatively easy to type out, you may just need to fine tune your thoughts a bit.  Overall as you leave today, I’d like you to think about this experience, whether positive or negative, and what type of affect your work could have on someone else.  Art is a powerful tool when it comes to communicating messages, don’t ever de-value someone else’s work because you just “don’t get it.” or “it’s too weird.”


Ceramics 1: Introduction to basic Sculpting Techniques

  • Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.
  • Take a look at your previous week’s works – where did you struggle the most with the idea of the cube? Where did you succeed the most?

Reflection / Evaluation: What was the most challenging part for you to create 3-D that you LEARNED the most from? Why was this most difficult way to go and how do you see the LEARNING? What is most important about creating a plan when it comes to working three dimensionally?
