Wed. Jan.13 Goals for the Day #PIRL #UglyMugs #ThumbnailPaintings

Intro to Art: Perspective in Real Life

PIRL hastag     InstagramPerspectiveChallenge

  • Create multiple solutions to specific perspective problems that demonstrate competence in producing effective relationships between structural choices and artistic functions by taking reference photos throughout the school that will be used for their project.
  • Discuss their choices and evaluate a range of subject matter, symbols, and ideas by being able to defend the choices made with their peers by responding to the Reflection / Evaluation question:  Keeping in mind all the different characteristics of PERSPECTIVE DRAWING, what types of things could you or do you plan on doing to make your work INTERESTING.  Is it the color, the spacing, the lines?  

We will be wrapping up our Perspective in Real Life Challenge soon, and I wanted to get everyone thinking about the specific items that are due.  In the image(s) above, you’ll see that there is a specific hashtag (#PIRL) for this project that needs to accompany the posting or email, along with the actual drawing that you’ve created.

Any “project” that is not turned in completely will automatically be graded as an INCOMPLETE (0)

Painting 1: 3 Generations Pre-Painting Thumbnails

While I know many of you are focused on jumping into your final paintings, the thumbnail process can be quiet beneficial to the final image.  I’d like each and everyone of you to think about one of the areas of your final painting that you see being challenging…What types of things are you thinking about to remedy the problem?
  • Conceive and create works of visual art that demonstrate an understanding of how the communication of their ideas relates to the media, techniques, and processes they use by working on a series of watercolor thumbnails that visual detail the appearance(s) of their final painting.
  • Initiate, define, and solve challenging visual arts problems independently using intellectual skills such as analysis, synthesis, and evaluation by writing a response to their mid-term proposal.

Here we go…The next few weeks we have together will involve many of us being in different sections/parts of this project at different times.  Last week, you submitted a proposal, which by the start of this week (Mon.Jan 11) I have commented on and approved those that were ready.  If you haven’t yet received an “ACCEPTED” response, you should be solving the issues I’ve commented on.

For those of you that got your proposal ACCEPTED, you need to grab your materials, but first PRIME your wooden board.  Primer is located in the back of the room and a few quick/even coats over the old painting will do just fine.  As your boards are drying, I have also required that you work on a series of 3 thumbnail paintings that will detail the end appearance of your final painting.

I highly recommend that you don’t skip this step!!!


Ceramics 1: Ugly Mugs Mid-Term Project

  • Through experimentation, practice, and persistence, demonstrate acquisition of skills and knowledge in a chosen art form.
  • Be able to discuss your choices and evaluate a range of subject matter, symbols, and ideas by being able to defend the choices made with their peers.

Take a look through the SEMESTER PROJECT HELP FOLDER requirements here.

REFLECTION / EVALUATION:  There are 7 days left for this final project, looking back on the challenges as a whole, I’d like you to identify areas of your project that you believe are the strongest.  As you consider the requirements for these mugs, I’d like you identify areas that you have some concerns about as well as two ideas you have for working out the issue.
