Daily Sketchbook 12/16

It's a short class period today so we need to be super duper efficient.
It is AOTM time, so let's do this.
You've heard me mention his name before, and he's one of our table group artists, so let's learn something about the inimitable Lucian Freud!

Art 1's Please Read

I am keeping the due date for the color wheel tempera painting as tomorrow, 12/8.
However, I am extending the time that you have to get your painting to me without penalty as outlined below.

You will have until the end of tutorial on Monday, 12/12 to get me your painting. Please note that you may NOT use class time on 12/12 to work on your painting.
This will give you after school time on Thursday, tutorial time on Friday, after school time on Friday, and tutorial time on Monday to get additional time on your painting.

Please do not rush the last 10% and make your painting a wreck in order to just get it done. Please don't do this.
I'm really enjoying some of the work you have already done and am looking forward to seeing your end results.

Keep in mind your probable need to have more than one layer on most areas in order to have opaque and smoothly applied paint. Please keep in mind the need to cover your pencil lines completely. Don't forget the color/value requirements either.

Smile. Have fun. I'll see you in class tomorrow.

Daily Sketchbook 12/7

Austin Kleon is a favorite. Much about the career he has constructed for himself is crazy great, and he is someone I suggest you investigate/look up at some point.

He first became "known" online for creating what he has termed "Newspaper Blackouts"

While you can watch the following video (volume not necessary) , I think the examples below it are probably just as instructive. I think the length of the piece in the video is a little much as sometimes less is more.

Grab a page from a magazine and a sharpie to create your own.

When you are finished you should use rubber  cement or glue stick (if you have your own) or scotch tape to attach your blackout poem to the next available page in your sketchbook.

As an added bonus, I will call on a few of you to read yours aloud to the class!
