I Had A Real Art Teacher Grade My Art…

Hey guys, it’s Rae here! Welcome back to my channel. Today I’m gonna be doing something that has never been done on art YouTube before. Today guys, I have a real-life professional art teacher right here next to me. Guys, give a huge round of applause to Miss Wolfie! And just for privacy reasons, we’re gonna go ahead and call her Miss Wolfie. She is actually an artist in real life so if you would like to see her Instagram, *imitates heavenly music* Haaaaa! *laughs* But yes, she is a real teacher here on my channel. *shutter clicks* And today, Miss Wolfie over here is going to not only give me an assignment, she is going to grade it and judge it just like she would one of her students except on a harsher level, I’m assuming. *Both laugh* So it’s a real art assignment, I’m going to be executing it to the best that I can. This video is not going to be about how good the art is, right? It’s gonna be solely based on the assignment. Yeah, um, there’s different levels to looking at art, to basically understand within public education is that we are trying not to just grade on how aesthetically pleasing that art is or how well it’s completed or composed, it’s about basically understanding the fundamentals of what art is, about the building blocks such as the elements of art and the principles of design. So basically guys, this ain’t no YouTube, YouTuber trying to look good challenge. This is a real art assignment, so… I’m actually currently giving it to my students right now. Oh really? Yeah, I have a single class level actually going through and doing this exact project. -Are they failing? -Not yet. *Wolfie laughs* Well, that’s comforting. You know, I think they’re really upset because it’s in watercolor, it’s gonna be a watercolor illustration. So do you want to go ahead and jump into the assignment and like, break down? -I have the actual lesson plan here with me today. You ready? I’m so nervous. -Let’s do this! Okay, so the title of it that I gave it is “Symbols for You.” The objective, really, of it is that you’re gonna pick three items that represent who you are as a person, such as your personality. Okay, so basically find symbolism with items that I have around the house. No, it’s like what you associate yourself with. It can be even things that spark a memory. Ohhh! -I have a lot of students. -Oh, this is gonna get so dark. I already have so many ideas. Yeah, I have students who will pick small little representations like a stuffed animal and out of nowhere they’ll tell a story during critique and some of them have broke down crying because they would dig so deep within themselves and make it into a piece of art that it just, it would spark, ignite a strong emotion within them. And that’s really good because I haven’t done any kind of like, symbolism on my channel in a very long time. I don’t know if I’ve ever done it, I don’t know if I’ve done it since college, so that makes… I don’t know if like, I’ve checked it out. So I don’t, I don’t remember either! *both laughing* Now, okay, so we’re not only going to be dealing with symbolism but it also says here that I need to have a “thoughtful composition.” Please explain what is a thoughtful composition. Okay, you’re using the principles of design to organize the elements of art and so it’s just like, very aesthetics, making it just attractive and not just chaotic nonsense, cause we’re not doin’ the abstract! So basically don’t just have three random things floating on a piece of paper. Yeah, like what our professor used to say. You don’t have them just like floating, floating in space, -so they’re not grounded or anything! -Okay yeah, I remember that from college, okay. This is a really good assignment because not only does it deal with execution, it’s also dealing with like, an emotional side of artwork, a symbolic side of artwork. I did not expect – honestly I did not expect you to throw this at me but yeah, okay. Just imagine I’m throwing it at small people. So *laughs* Wow. Is there any last words, any final words you want to tell me? Advice? Well, like, the kind of I give to my kids is that you’re gonna screw up. You’re gonna probably make a mistake, you’re gonna be like “Dang it! It’s ruined! I must scrap it!” Slow down, take your time and realize that this one mistake can just lead you to a better path. -Okay. -And you’re gonna be shocked by what you think you, what you’re capable of doing. -Ooooh, I like that! That’s really, that’s good, I like that. Well guys, Miss Wolfie, I will see you here in a few days with the final artwork presented and ready for you and… (Wolfie): Oooooh!! I’m so nervous! *Both laughing* It’s not gonna be that bad. You’re not gonna die. I might! So anyway, let’s go ahead and get that started. *Piano music* Okay, everybody. So the very first step to my homework assignment, which sounds so weird to say, because I’ve been out of college for a hot minute now. But the first step is just setting up the still life, making it look nice and just kind of like thinking of different ways of how I can make it look good. Now for the three items that I picked, I ended up choosing a dog skull, a bright pink lipstick, and lastly a laptop that I have. Now as far as the arrangement goes, cause apparently that was a big part of the assignment, I wanted to arrange it in a way that was reminiscent of like, you know, Renaissance paintings and original still lifes from view masters and just get some like, heavy dark contrast in there and I just wanted it to be like there’s… ooh, I got some really nice reference photos going on. Yes! Look at that. Bow, you like my reference photos? You like my reference photos? Oh, thank you! Thank you! Okay, okay, calm down, calm down, because we need to move on to the next part which will be, uh, painting the thing. It’s, okay can you for real calm down? She’s like attacking me with her tongue. *”The Price is Right” theme* Okay, so now on to the next part which is the actual painting process and surprise, surprise, I am using none other than oil painting because when I was in school, that was what I was studying and this assignment honestly got me feeling like a kid in school again because I’m doing things I have not done since I was in school, like for example when is the last time on my channel that I’ve had to tactfully create a perspective background? Never! Never ever ever, you know. And so, it’s easy to blow off and think, heh heh, you know, “middle school assignment; I’ll breeze through this,” but no, this is actually teaching me something, this is making me work in new ways and problem-solve in artwork, which is something I haven’t done in a while and it feels good! *Background music* Now for the painting we’re gonna have to put this in, like hyperspeed man, because you know, it’s oil painting. It takes a long time to make an oil painting, it’s much different than it is drawing. And I know what you’re thinking, like Rae, why, why would you pick oil painting if it takes so long? And the answer to that, real talk, is that I am still studying oil painting. I got a taste of it as a student and I’m barely getting back into it. And that’s why I admire and model myself so much after the old masters, you know what I’m saying? Like, it blows my mind that five hundred years ago these people were able to master this medium and these highlights and shadows and contrast in color. It’s like, it blows my mind and honestly like, I want to learn their techniques. That’s why I love it so much and that’s why I’m always like “I gotta be better!” Next up I will be working on the background. Now this stuff is really important because I want to make it look like this random skull, this lipstick, it’s in a room, there is a background, there is a foreground, and I really want to follow this specific rule because she, I don’t know if you guys remember, but she said What, what our professor used to say: You don’t have them just like floating, floating in space so they’re not grounded or anything! Do not have it floating in space. We actually went to the same college together and yeah, we used to have a professor who would tell us that all the time, just like screaming it in our faces, “Don’t have it floating. You need to ground it!” So because of that, every time I do it, even if it’s just a simple drawing, I have to have like a heavy, heavy brim around it, to like show THIS AIN’T FLOATING IN SPACE! You know what I’m saying? *Mood music* Okay, so just a quick update, first of all my dog, she’s such a sweetie. She’s been here this whole time just like chillin’ and I love her. Love you Bowie! But anyway back to what I was saying. So I just started working on the background, you know, it’s all starting to kind of come together, but I realized that she had mentioned… -Colored? -Mm-hmm. -The whole thing? -Yeah, that’s kind of what a lot of my students struggle with, like they’ll just like, “oh I’ll color this one little section” and leave the ENTIRE background white. The idea is you can’t just leave this space because we’re talking about positive and negative space at one point in the classroom, is that you have to fill everything in with positive space. And so because of that, I decided last minute to, you know what? I’m going to add in a little candle right here in the corner. That way you can add some depth, add a little something visual, and just add a little something something that wasn’t there before. And I’m glad that I added that because that was one fourth of the canvas that was completely blank. I definitely would have got docked some points. *Goofy SpongeBob music* And finally, this leads us to the last part of the painting process, which is actually pretty minor in comparison to everything else but I’m just gonna add in some details here and there, fill things out that need to be filled out, add in some highlights, shadows, a little bit more depth, you know, add in a little, add in a little bit of color and just, you know generally, just get it all ready and finish it up. And yes, that includes getting it gallery ready, getting it presentable and putting it in a frame which was actually a lot of fun, to go frame shopping. *Music ends* *Dracula music* -All I know so far is that it’s in a frame.
-Is it in a frame or is it hiding behind the frame? Okay, whenever you’re ready for it. Daaaang. Do you want me to leave you alone to paint it? -Leave me alone with my thoughts as I like, drop down everything that’s wrong with it. -Or right with it! -But no, uh, let me just examine it for like a second and then we’ll get back to you.
-Okay, sounds good. She’s gonna examine it. Okay ready? Yes! Okay, here we go. So, how my ratings system goes is just what was required, effort, participation, craftsmanship and creativity. Okay, so we’re gonna be judged on these four things. -Obviously you hit the nail on the head on that one. -Okay! Mostly because it was very simple. You needed three objects all together, there you go. One of them is from an animal so I can’t get mad at it, it’s just your interpretation because it also goes back to like the effort idea, is that you obviously did within the amount of time given to the best of your ability. Yes, okay. So those are five out of like, five. 5 out of 5! Those, the things out of it. -Next category is… -We’ll look at craftsmanship. -Craftsman, aw… Okay, let’s just get that one out of the way. Um, overall with craftsmanship within my notes that I looked at cause kinda when you judge art, it’s not just like, “oh sit back, relax and look at it,” it’s actually kind of getting up close and personal with it, and the things that gave you a 4 out of 5- Okay. -was because there was obvious look of pencil marks. With craftsmanship is also looking at your references, knowing what you’re looking at. So I looked also on how candles show shadow, and that’s what throws me off, I was like, “does a candle really have that backdrop of a shadow?” Because if it illuminates, it shouldn’t have a shadow around it. Everything else will get the shadow. -So it’s going in making sure your values are hitting where they’re supposed to hit, in the correct spots. -Okay. That’s a good one. I like that. Going in and, but the overall concept of it, you did great with making it have depth. I actually gave you on that one a four out of five, because overall it is a creative piece, -Okay, okay. Yeah. -It’s just, it feels like maybe there could have been a little bit more oomph with those extra elements in it. -Creativity was a four or five. -Creativity, four out of five. -And then effort and -participation was a five. -And effort and participation four out of five. Okay. -No, five out of five. – Five out of five! Yeah, because you obviously got the participation down within the amount of time that you had. Heck yeah. I’m into that! Right now I just want to know what is the ultimate grade of what you would rate this on a scale of -twenty being the total points, what is the total grade? -You got an 18 out of 20. Oh, that’s good! I was literally expecting like a four! You got a 90. Oh hey! Ha ha! Yes, we’re going out tonight! That’s awesome! Wow, this has been a really wonderful thing. I’m so glad that you’re on my channel, I truly did learn a lot and guys, if you like this I- would you be down for a part 2? I would love a part 2 because I have resources. Maybe I can get like a quiz or something. From someone even more in-depth with the art scene than I am. So anyway guys, Miss Wolfie, -thank you so much for being on my channel. -Thank you for having me. It’s been amazing. Yes, it’s been wonderful. Again, if you’d like to follow her art Instagram, boom, it’s right here, mines right here. And with that being said guys, thank you so much again for watching and I’ll see you next video. -Peace. -Bye! *Ending music*

    I really hate these kind of our projects because they're very limiting, my art teacher is so lenient with what we get to do, there's usually only one parameter, or like one technique, but we usually get to do whatever we want which is really cool

    Going through her Instagram made me lose my impression of this “teacher” tremendously. At first glance I actually though all of the works were made by students. I would expect a much higher skill level from a teacher in the subject 😕

    In school I have a little notebook that I doodle in and sketch in because it helps me focus, for some reason I focus better multitasking stuff then just doing work straight up, And as I was looking for my hmwk in my bag my art teacher grabbed the notepad, opened it, flipped through it and threw it on the desk and said “you can do better than that” and I’m sat there thinking ‘oh thanks because some of my best pieces are in there miss’

    the art teacher is much nicer than my art teacher. all she does is is shout the directions at us and then if we don't understand something she says oh u weren't listening ask someone who is actually smart enough to listen to the directions. the problem is with her tho is the whole class never understands.

If one of my kids had a teacher that presented herself dressed liked that…..nope, no thank you, uh uh. I want teachers who at least dress more “professionally”, not like they are going to a rock concert. Don’t care what the qualifications are on paper. Look like a responsible adult for Pete’s sake!!
