Submission for this month’s Art Dare from Owen from @sketchofthedays.  He writes: “With this sketch I hope to elaborate on my change as a person throughout the year of 2016. I feel this year, I’ve been closer to my true self then I’ve ever been. This is mainly due to the pre-college program I attended over the summer. I’m currently figuring out ways to brain storm this transformation.”

Art Critique for Carol Haggerty’s Art Class

We were thrilled to award the Art Teacher’s prize for the September Art Dare to Carol Haggerty, who teaches at Millis High School. The Art Teacher’s prize allows each student in the class to submit an artwork of their choice for a 1 minute video critique from Prof Clara Lieu.  Watch Carol’s class video critique above.  If you are an artist or an art teacher, consider submitting to our December Art Dare!

We were really impressed with the way Carol’s students experimented and pushed themselves with charcoal.  You can see below that each student developed their own visual language for drawing with charcoal, and the excellent results they got. Below you can see several of the charcoal self-portraits that students in Carol’s class created in response to the Art Dare.

Art Dare: Artist Traci Turner

traci-turner1

Artist Traci Turner wrote a wonderful blog post about participating in our October Art Dare, “Your Future Self.” We loved reading about her poignant and honest insights on her subject matter and creative process.  Above you can see her mind map she created to begin the brainstorming process, and her finished drawing below.

traci-turner2

A few months back, Prof Clara Lieu did a 30 minute video critique on Traci’s portfolio, which you can watch below. One of the best parts of Art Prof is meeting new artists, getting to know them, and watching their progression over a period of time!
