AP 2D design – food for thought #2

Standard

Know your why:

There are some embedded stereotypes in this video that need to be addressed in our discussion. Nevertheless, the musical illustration is one which can help to clarify your own artistic process.

As you begin work on your Concentration – your Sustained Investigation – bring your “why” into focus and the “what” will follow.

OPEN STUDIOS – Art 1,2,3, AP, Photo classes, and Ceramics – Oct. 7-8, Oct. 14-15, Oct. 21-22 – Due by Mon. Oct. 23

Standard

Over the next 3 weekends, Santa Cruz County artists will open their studios to visitors to show their art and art making processes.

Attend a total of 3 artist studios. (AP, Photo, and Ceramics students must attend at least 3 that are specific and relevant to their current work.)

For each visit, write down the artist’s name, take notes, and be ready to share in class:

1. your impressions of each studio and artwork. Include a small drawing of something that interests you in the studio (the art, materials, work space, etc.).

2. the artist’s techniques and processes (this information is posted in the studio; if you don’t see it, ask about their technique).

3. the inspiration for your own art work (either by a desire to emulate the artist or for a manner to differentiate your work from the artist).

For extra credit, Sept 30-Oct. 22 attend the Preview Show at the Santa Cruz Art League at 526 Broadway (scal.org) or attend the R. Blitzer Gallery Preview Show 2801 Mission from Oct 6-22 (rblitzergallery.com). Make sure you check the hours before you go.  For the credit, share the artist and title for what you would award as the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place in the whole show and explain why.

Students may attend the studios together but must have independent notes.  You may become interested in visiting particular artists by hearing others’ comments.

Do all three on one weekend or one each weekend, but don’t leave until the last day! You can share your visits each Monday over the next few weeks, or on the final Monday (October 23rd). Plan it out.

There are Guide Booklets in art rooms 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 All County weekend.

AP Art – Resources 1/12/15

Standard

The following site is a wonderful resource for you to start Sem 2.

Spend the full class time – and more at home looking at each of the Breadth and each of the Concentration posts as well as the numerous instructional videos.

Pay attention to  the AP criteria for assessing work and reflect upon your own work in light of these criteria.

Note, sometimes you have to go back to the home page at this site to see the full listings for each of the Breadth and Concentration postings.
