What is the first thing to learn in art school? "Art can beanything." The second thing? "Learn to draw." With 101 Things toLearn in Art School, artist and teacher Kit White delivers and develops suchlessons, striking an instructive balance between technical advice and sage concepts.These 101 maxims, meditations, and demonstrations offer both a toolkit of ideas forthe art student and a set of guiding principles for the artist. Complementing eachof the 101 succinct texts is an equally expressive drawing by the artist, oftenbased on a historical or contemporary work of art, offering a visual correlative tothe written thought. "Art can be anything" is illustrated by a drawing ofDuchamp's famous urinal; a description of chiaroscuro art is illuminated by an image"after Caravaggio"; a lesson on time and media is accompanied by a view ofa Jenny Holzer projection; advice about surviving a critique gains resonance fromPiero della Francesca's arrow-pierced Saint Sebastian. 101 Things to Learn in ArtSchool offers advice about the issues artists confront across all artistic media, but this is no simple handbook to making art. It is a guide to understanding art asa description of the world we live in, and it is a guide to using art as a mediumfor thought. And so this book belongs on the reading list of art students, artteachers, and artists, but it also belongs in the library of everyone who caresabout art as a way of understanding life.
