Goals for the Day: Fri. Nov. 13 #moartstache #sketchchallenge #movembersketchchallenge

Intro to Art: Sketchbook Challenge

Even though this character might be a push over, that ‘stache is 100% real (and definitely not a clip on)
  1. Create artwork using materials and techniques with skill so that personal intentions and basic understanding of the themed/timed sketch is complete
  2. Write arguments to support claims that your intentions HAVE been carried out using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence.

Whew!!!  That’s a mouth full.  Today we embark on an interesting topic for the month of Novemeber in our sketchbooks.  The month of MOVEMBER.  You can check out more information on exactly what MOVEMBER is and means here at their official website.  Through out this month, our themes will be based off of characters or people who made the mustache famous.

Painting 1: Random Word Sketchbook Challenge

  1. Create artwork using materials and techniques with skill so that personal intentions and basic understanding of the themed/timed sketch is complete
  2. Write arguments to support claims that your intentions HAVE been carried out using valid reasoning and relevant and sufficient evidence.

We’ve gotten away from our weekly sketch/paint over the past few weeks, or at least it seems that way. I want to make sure before we start that there is a good understanding for what it is that you will be creating and trying to visually solve over the next two (2) Fridays.

  1. Follow this link to the RANDOM WORD GENERATOR site
  2. Change the number of words to “3”
  3. Click GENERATE RANDOM WORDS
  4. Now paint!!!

The goal here is to get away from needing to constantly ask “Can I draw/paint…”  The only wrong answer here is no answer.  Allow your imagination to freely go wherever these three words take you.  We will be working on this for the next two Fridays in class, however feel free to work on this whenever you want on your own.

REMEMBER TO POST YOUR IMAGE ONLINE using the hashtag: #MHSSKETCHCHALLENGE

Ceramics 1: Creating 3-D Forms

  1. Document the process of developing ideas from early stages to fully elaborated ideas.
  2. Reflection / Evaluation: What is was your CONCENTRATION about? SHARE YOUR IDEAS with your neighbor and MAKE A NOTE on your DAILY GOAL SHEET.

Now that the hard part is over, students will watch an in-class demonstration that walks each person through the correct steps in creating a proportionally stable clay cube.  It will be each student’s responsibility to keep the clay in proper working condition as this demonstration will take the next few days.  Students will be encouraged to investigate the project’s HELP FOLDER with the associated slides, exemplar photos and requirements for the following project challenge.
