Use ink/ ink wash techniques for your background. Then create your subject matter with charcoal and/or ink.
Here is another great video with a young artist talking about her art and her art making. She really thinks about the WHY behind her art. That WHY feeds your concentration statement. What are you doing for your concentration, but also WHY are you doing that. Explore the WHY (if you have't already) in your visual journal for your Concentration #2!
Today will be the first of many Manic Mondays throughout the year. These are designed for your to explore/play with various media, try out new ideas, and work QUICKLY!
Today in class you will finalize the topic of your AP Concentration. summer and first week of class, you have come up with at least 25 ideas. Some of them are too narrow, some are too broad, some have little visual stimulation, others have lots of possibilities. Your job today is to narrow it down to find the best concentration idea for you.

For those taking AP art next year, I am attaching copies of the summer work here and on my AP blog as well. Please be sure to email me if you have questions: Julie.firstname.lastname@example.org.
These will be due the second day of school. I will be checking the photos and drawing challenge (2D/Drawing) or project and artist challenge (3D) on your blog, so you can go ahead and post them there as you complete them.
Besides your weebly blog, the last thing we will be doing is to write a letter to future AP students. This doesn't have to be very long. (about a page). Let the students know what to expect, suggestions you might have for them, and the types of things they get to do in the AP class. You may want to tell them about your favorite thing you did so that they know that hard work brings great rewards. (do this on your own paper and YES you can be as artistic and creative as you'd like!).
