“Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance.” – Samuel Johnson

Intro to Art: Non-Objective Art

I can:

  1. Re-Create a composition based upon the idea of NON-OBJECTIVE art

Weekly Journal Reflection:   Backing up the Choices Made

This project has taken on a ton of twist and turns.  What has helped you follow through with the decisions you’ve made on your piece?  How do you feel like these choices would’ve been different if you knew the end goal before we started?

Ceramics: Face Mugs and the Fired Finished Clay

I can:

  1. Learn and practice various building techniques that are specific to a project.
  2. Create a determined plan for my mug project.

Let’s take some time to take a look at what came out of the kiln…Remember to make note of the two firing dates that we have this week, located on the calendar on the RIGHT side of the page (you can actually subscribe to it).  Since you will need this project when it comes to glazing next week, make sure you store it in a safe spot.  The rest of the week will be dedicated to finishing up the last mug.

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL THE NECESSARY ACTION PAGE INFORMATION READY TO BE TURNED IN FOR THIS FRIDAY!!!

Painting: Color Swatch Book

I can:

  1. Discuss the importance of proper mixing techniques
  2.  Apply media, technique, and process with skill and confidence

While we are still in “catch-up” mode, we will really stress the importance of what this project really represents.  

So most of us are entering the CONSTRUCTION/FINISHING process of this project.  Looking back at your action plan…(you still have it RIGHT?!?) What do you think about the significance in of creating a plan before you start in with the actual work?  Where there any headaches that you had when working on this?  Anything unclear to you, or confusing what step to take next?

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ALL THE NECESSARY ACTION PAGE INFORMATION READY TO BE TURNED IN WITH YOUR SWATCHES @ THE END OF CLASS!!!

Drawing: Focused Gesture Drawing

I can:

  • Identify characteristics of a GESTURE drawing
  • Represent certain aspects of gesture drawing in my practice sketches

Sort of in catch up mode, but that is OK.  We will focus on our plan from last week (Fri) and work on two, 5 min. gesture sketches.  These should be in your sketchbook under #3 and #4, labeled as “5 min,” and trying to use the whole sheet of paper.  Remember some of the areas of GESTURE and most importantly, HAVE FUN!!!

Tomorrow….THE BEAN
