|My sample, student samples, and Georgia O'Keefe|
For the reflection on this project of poinsettia paintings I labeled each question with the habit it addressed. Next I plan on putting up some posters in the classroom.
At our last meeting I was heartened to hear the term "artist teacher" I think it is so important for our students to see that we are passionate about our own personal art making - as hard as it is to find time to do so. Here is a board I put together for my Studio class. They are in the process of making large gridded self-portraits using oil pastels. Last year I made 2 different samples - one with a mirror that I documented as I progressed so they could see the changes and mistakes I made. The other is an unfinished gridded self-portrait that I have been using for demonstration. The other two are student samples.
See you all Wednesday.
