Welcome to Art! Art is a process. Parts of our artistic process may include:

-Reading books or researching

-Responding or talking about art

-Brainstorming ideas, lists, and diagrams

-Planning and sketching drafts

-Testing materials and techniques

-Making our artwork

-Peer feedback

-Evaluating our creations

-Revising or editing our creations

-Reflecting by writing about or talking about our art  


The two main components of our process are creating and responding.

Creating: Is when we develop our works of art! Creating includes planning (our ideas and how to use the art materials), talking about our plans, using feedback to refine our work and combining our art ideas with our learned art skills to create our work.

Responding: Is when we talk about art! Responding includes describing, analyzing, interpreting, and evaluating a work of art. This means we think about what we see, combine it with what we know, figure out the meaning of the artwork and evaluate its effectiveness. In art class, we use what we have learned when we respond to a specific work of art to help inform the creation of our artwork!
