Goals for today:
Finish your sculpture!
Photograph your sculpture in your planned destination. Phone photos are ok. Email to me by the end of the hour. (these photos will go with your group presentation during the critique).
Write your artist statement. This should be done as a group. This is due on Friday. Your statement should be at least 1 page.
Artist statement content
1) Ask yourself questions about your work:
Why you have created the work and what is its history?
Your overall vision-- what are you trying to say in the work?
What influences your work?
What is your inspiration for your images?
2) Create a list of words and phrases that describe your chosen themes, your artistic values, creation process, and influences (i.e. experiences, dreams). Draw from your answers from the previous step.
3) Edit down your list of words and begin creating sentences using those words.
4) Combine the sentences into logical, flowing paragraphs.
