The day started off with announcements and discussion of strategy.
For submitting any corrected work from the mid-term, turn it in with the new drawing on top and the old drawing on the bottom.
After the class was done with warm-ups, she had the class walk around the room and critique the drawings and see what they may want to take from another persons drawing that is stronger than theirs. What techniques and strategy are they employing that you would like to employ as well.
Write down two things that you learned from viewing the warm-up drawings. some of these comments were:
Be less eratic
Do darks and lights
Get to shading faster
include more of the head
more expressive lines
create a map first
Note: Once again: Draw the form as if it where oxygen on the page
Mediate what you see with what you know.
Measure the figure with a pencil...start working more on proportion.
They did one long standing pose starting at 3:00 today.
At the end of class Maryann discussed with the student about registering for class. She discussed the difference between a BFA and a BA
It was a great working day!
I have just begun my journey in the Masters of Fine Art Program at The University of Montana. I am currently "Shadowing" an art professor in her class to observe and learn what being a professor all about. As part of this process I have created this blog to document what I am learning.
