I have 3 classes that I am doing Studio Thinking with. Two of them have Tumblr blogs set up because part of the class objectives are for students to take ownership of their artistic process and to blog about it. We have just started. At the moment, I still have a lot of the blogging burden, but as time goes on, they will have more and more responsibility for the posts.
Class 1: Guerrilla Art Class is an advanced studio class that is focused on creating Contemporary art that moves beyond the gallery to the world. All of their art is being sent out into the world with an interactive component, and the blog will document that process.
Class 2: Chop Chop Swagg is a beginner Studio Drawing and Painting class. While some of their work really revolves around learning the basics of Studio art making, they are also working on the blog in hopes that the creative choices they do make can be explained BY THEM, not just my curriculum or assignments.
Class 3: no name yet, still in planning - they are an IB sophomore class that is pretty similar to Chop Chop Swagg but heavier on academic writing, planning, research, and journal writing. Make no mistakes, their creativity and studio skill is formidable as you will see when they are up and running.
I realized that I am pulling double (quadruple?) duty by blogging with them on their Tumbler and on this site. So I will instead use this site to connect you to their Tumbler and explain a bit more from the teacher's perspective. Please visit their sites and ENJOY!
