Current Art Projects
1st Semester 2013
No Homework assigned. All artwork performed during class time.
6th, 7th/8th Grade Students:
Students are introduced to art through discussion and individual/group projects. We will talk about many things such as Theme, Elements & Principles, History, Aesthetics(the nature of art & their responses to artwork ),Criticism(analysis & evaluation and use of art vocabulary), and how art is used or in other subject areas (interdisciplinary connections). Students will begin their first project viewing examples of completed projects and discussion of what they are about to create….2 preliminary drawings, later to be used as their “blueprint” for each side of the project folder. Art folders are designed to hold all art projects they create this semester.
All students will create a Character Ed poster each month, due at the end of each month.
ADVISORY: Daily, during 3rd hour. Students are working on their MAP packets(Mondays), Positive Action Activities(Wednesdays) and Reading(Fridays). Tuesdays and Thursdays Trivia, group study, study skills and reading. Students need to continue working diligently on their advisory activities to make this time a success. Hats Off to all those who have played a part in planning this great program!
