Goals for the Day: Wed. Jan. 7

“An average person with average talent, ambition and education, can outstrip the most brilliant genius in our society, if that person has clear, focused goals.” – Brian Tracy

CERAMICS:FINAL PROJECT (UGLY MUGS)

For some of you this will be your last day. What will you do to prepare your work for when we get back from Christmas break?

Create-Produce-Respond-Connect

  1. Orally be able to defend and explain your choices by responding to PROJECT REQUIREMENTS.
  2. Work within the created  plan for which you will follow  specific steps in building a work of art, by referring to an ACTION PLAN.

The final countdown is on!  For some of you, this will be the last time we see each other for 11 days.  Since almost 85% percent of the class stated that they are aiming to get their firing done when we get back from break, my question to you is…what are you goals for today?

What do you see about your artwork that STANDS OUT to you as needing a bit of work? Is there anything that you are immediately “bothered” by? Is there anything that stands out as “GREAT?”  What have you learned about the work that you are creating? Is there anything you feel that has really advanced and developed? Something that you have really GROWN from?

We are right in the midst of making our first few steps in the tessellation process.  What sticks out to you as some of the more important steps that people overlook when starting this type of project?  As the next few days go by and we head to break, I’d like you to think about the goals you have on completing this project.

Take a look at how artist Kehinde Wiley uses simple shapes in his background, but also how they interact with the subject of his painting. Have you noticed any of these characteristics in the artists you’ve researched?

With 10 days left and counting, many of us will start to gather materials and work with out compositions.  Before you even start with a paintbrush, I’d like you to be thinking of some of the research you’ve done.  What type of layout did the art you looked at have?  Was there a specific way the objects/people were organized on the painting that made you look into it more?

Drawing: Continued Work with 2PT Perspective

What type of perspective rules do you see followed here? Before starting on your final draft, create a quick layout that shows where the placement and basic lines should be.
