Welcome to my online classroom.
Dear Parents; 8-15-2017-2018
I am looking forward to working with your student this year. I have several projects scheduled this year that I think will be fun and rewarding. I have designed my courses to help the students bridge from High School to entry level college courses as they progress from Art 1 to Art 4. That means that we will have art vocabulary, Art History, hands on projects and class discussions and evaluations. Art 1 begins with the basics learning the elements and principles of design and applying those concepts to a hands on projects. The advanced courses of Art will be introduced to increasingly difficult projects where students can experiment, discover, invent and refine techniques in their original works.
Art 2-3 classes will be working on a continuation of art media, tools, techniques, and are critiqued on a series of criteria specifically designed for each project. The basic curriculum vocabulary words are followed by Art History and a hands on project that is selected to enrich a deeper understanding of the cultures of the world. There will be a chronological study of ancient to modern art and architecture. Class tests will be generated from the Art History worksheets and vocabulary for each lesson.
I follow school policy on work due dates, absences and suspensions. There is usually no homework unless a student is absent and need to make up assignments. Please become familiar with the school policies.
Materials for the beginning of school will be as listed below;
Two pocket folder, notebook paper, erasers and pencils
