Goals for the Day: Fri. Dec. 4

“When you do nothing, you feel overwhelmed and powerless. But when you get involved, you feel the sense of hope and accomplishment that comes from knowing you are working to make things better.” — Zig Ziglar

 The Red Cup Challenge


Take a look at the quote above….

This week’s sketchbook is going to be a little different.

The Great Dictator Final Speech


Painting 1: Peace Exchange Artist Statements

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?
