Many contemporary artists are well known for using everyday inexpensive and multiple units of same materials to make art.
Studio Exercise A:
What fear/welcoming/surprise/boredom/sadness feel like. The purpose of this exercise is to warm up your abstract thinking through manipulation of texture.
Studio Exercise B:
From One Thing to Another. The purpose of this exercise is to look at something a bit different than normal. To see something(s) as possibilities not as definitions.
Using a paper bag, transform the material into something else – a new and unexpected abstract form. You can use your tools, your hands, water, anything you can find in the class to manipulate the paper. It might be best to play first…
Now for the fun part… HOMEWORK!
The completed project will be due the first week of December. YOUR MATERIALS, BRAINSTORMS FOR A FEW STRUCTURES BASED ON THE ARTIST RESEARCH AND TWO MINIATURE ‘PLAY’ SCULPTURES WILL BE DUE NEXT WEEK. YOU MAY WORK IN GROUPS OF TWO BUT BE ADVISED, YOUR WORK MUST REFLECT THE WORK OF TWO PEOPLE. NEXT WEEK WE WILL WORK ON THE PLAN AND BEGINNING DESIGN OF THE FINAL PORTION OF THIS PROJECT.
