Over the next 3 weekends, Santa Cruz County artists will open their studios to visitors to show their art and art making processes.
For each art class enrolled in at GBK, attend a total of 3 artists studios. (Art 1, Art 2, Art 3, Art 4 – any type of art from glass to textile to painting, printmaking, or photography.)
Photo students must attend studios of photographers; Independent Study and AP 2D, focus on your medium.
For each visit, you must:
1. Post an account of your visit and your impressions of the studio, the artist, and their work.
2. Make comments about their techniques and processes (this information is posted in their studio, if you don’t see it, ask about their technique.) AND,
3. Comment on the inspiration this gives you for your own art work.
For extra credit, ask questions directly of the artist and post results of your “interview.”
For extra credit, you may attend and post accounts about more than 3 artist studios.
For extra credit, attend the Preview Show at the Santa Cruz Art League on Broadway (see link.) Post name and artist for what you would award 1st 2nd and 3rd place in the whole show and explain why.
Students may attend the studios together but they should have independent posts. You also may be inspired to visit particular artists by reading others’ posts.
Do all three on one weekend or one each weekend but don’t leave until the last day! You can post by each Monday or by the final Monday. Plan it out.
There is a Guide Booklet in the art room 216 and 222 with maps if you want to plan your weekend trips. North County is the first weekend, South County the second, and some artists are open for the third, Encore weekend.
For Art 1 – There is an hour, free choice, sketchbook drawing due at start of each week.
