Food for thought! Ashton Kutcher gives some great insight!



Welcome back to school! With the 2015-2016 school year, you will see some changes in the art room. We are trying to utilize technology as much as possible to increase your art experience. Instead of finding your assignments on my blog, you will now be able to find your assignments, handouts, etc. in your very own Google Art Classroom. The first week of class, we will go over the access code and how to join the class so you can stay up-to-date on what is due.

The blog will now be used to share more student artwork, local inspirations and art shows, and anything else that I find worthy of sharing out to our art community.

Have a great year and I cannot wait to see you all! Best of luck on your first day.

Studio Art Weekly Sketch Due Thursday, March 18

For this week’s sketch, you will do two drawings. One will be to render something made of paper. The other, will be in contrast, to draw something made of metal. I want you to compare a hard surface to a soft surface. It is up to you how you show these two sketches. You can draw them individually or you can combine them to create your own interesting composition. Please define what juxtaposition is and take that word into consideration while creating. Have fun, spend the time necessary, and take pride in your work.

Advanced Studio Weekly Sketch Due Wednesday, March 18

Please create or recreate a reflective surface for this week’s assignment. I would like you to either push realism or to practice the style you are using for your art history poster. Please consider your composition. Take a step back and take a look at the form you are creating, the reflective surface (what is being reflected) and the overall unity of the sketch.

Photography Weekly Photo

For this weekly photo you are to photograph silverware. You can use any cooking/ eating utensil. Be creative with your compositions. Try to incorporate your style of photography with this subject matter. Have fun! I can’t wait to see what you come up with. 10 photo minimum. Due Thursday, March 12th. 

Remember- I am no longer accepting late work.

Advanced Studio AND Studio Art Sketch Assignment

For this week’s sketch assignment, you need to draw a clothed figure. We are focusing on the folds of the clothing. Notice the highlights, shadows, and take special note which way you apply your marks to the paper. A strong light source will be your friend.

Refer to gesture drawing for the figure and then perfect the form of the figure so that it looks like the person is wearing the clothes- just just copy and pasted on.

Photography Assignment

For your next assignment, I want you to explore EXTREME PERSPECTIVES! You should be taking pictures from a ‘worms eye view,’ a ‘birds eye view,’ and any other extreme perspective.

Here are some examples of forced perspective:

Without copying these ideas…explore interesting perspectives on your own… what can you come up with? Show me something I haven’t seen before.
