Students will be able to:
- Explain their decision making process for each color they painted for color studies.
- Evaluate colors mixed for different color wheels by their classmates.
- Arrange motifs for Still Life painting.
- Improve compositional balance of other people's artworks in another course.
- Demonstrate the right attitude as a painter in an art critique.
Most students mixed their own red, by adding shades of yellow and blue. Two students had extreme difficulties mixing red-orange analogous (normal). One student had unexpected difficulties mixing blue-violet variations (unusual). No major disasters.
Each student was assigned to an Exquisite Corpse drawing received from Art-in-New York and she or he will make a NYC Painting on a 11" x 14" canvas board based on what she or he received (due 10/4). They need to make the image very NEW YORK CITY with an element from the drawing. This class watched an art video on Spirituality and visited September 11 exhibitions at museums previous weeks, so what they studied should be used to explore ideas of visualizing the city that historically and recently went through many events. Their completed paintings will be documented and the photos will be sent to another class from which the original drawings came.
For the rest of the class, we looked through Still Life paintings by Paul Cezanne and Giorgio Morandi to understand various balanced compositions. For the Monochrome assignment, they will paint three (3) eggs only with black and white in acrylics.
