Hello Artists and Parents,
Collaborative Drawing with my kiddo
It has been so nice to connect with so many of you over this past week over email. Your responses to the enrichment projects have been so interesting and fueled with your personalities (that I miss so much by the way). I remind you that these opportunities that I post are OPTIONAL and are NOT GRADED and there are no DUE DATES. However, your responses to the enrichment opportunities help us maintain our valuable artist community.
As artists, it is important to maintain good artistic practices which can involve any of the following: sketching/drawing/mark making, sculpting, collage, critiquing art, virtual gallery tours, writing about your art or someone else’s creations. The collaborative, sidewalk chalk drawing I made with my daughter kept me making marks, communicating, expressing and exploring the Elements of Art and Principles of Design (albeit not my finest work;).
Here is your NEXT, OPTIONAL, UNGRADED and NO-SPECIFIED DUE DATE enrichment opportunity. Using the words you used to describe your current state of mind (check back to prompt #1 posted last week), transform this work into solely visual language, no text just imagery that conveys the words. This visual language can be conveyed through symbols, shapes, colors, textures and more.
Second, I know many of you are familiar with Katsushika Hokusai’s, “The Great Wave off Kanagawa”. Check out this iconic, stunning piece up close by clicking here.
