Art is not Linear
Warm-up activity
What is your favorite way to express yourself? Music, art, writing, cooking, sports, etc?
Imagine you are creating or trying something new in this area. What
do you take? What
do you do? Write down as many as you can.
McGinness used the
creative process
to design all 16 panels.

Creative Process
Artists, designers, and creative professionals use the Creative Process to create works that are beautiful, novel, and meaningful.
YOU--all of my classroom artists--will use the Creative Process with every art project you create!
1. Imagine
brainstorm, explore, organize thoughts,
develop ideas/concepts/feelings
Questions to ask:
What message am I trying to communicate?
What skills do I want to use?
Who has addressed a similar theme or message in the past?
2. Plan
Preliminary sketching, thumbnail compositions, material selection, research, experiment, practice, design ways of presenting idea
Questions to ask:
What media am I using and why?
How will I use the elements of art to communicate meaning?
How will I execute this idea?
3. Create
Tasks: develop, use skills and techniques, arrange the parts
Questions to ask:
How is my technique bringing my idea to life?
How am I adjusting my plan as I work?
4. Reflect
Tasks: critique, evaluate, question, compare, step away, talk about it, revisit brainstorming
Questions to ask:
Does this work communicate my intended meaning?
How do the principles of design play into the work?
Have I made the most effective choices to communicate my meaning?
What is my artistic voice?
5. Revise
Tasks: adjust, elaborate, refine, change, review, alter, tweak
Questions to ask:
What does my work look like from a different perspective?
Where are the "fuzzy spots" in my work?
How do I know when I'm done?
"I'm trying to be more me...What makes me and my work unique, and how do I share that with other people? How is that reflected in the work? And what does that mean to make work that reflects all those things?"
