IT’S A WRAP!

Final projects were due today along with the rubric. I will take the one-page type written report through Friday. They may be emailed to me or shared on google drive.

It has been a great year and I am actually looking forward to next year because of the additional art opportunities that we will have with the 3-D art and the increased curriculum that I have planned with the Foundations I and II classes.

THANK YOU FOR A FANTASTIC YEAR AND FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF OUR AUCTION WITHOUT WHICH MUCH OF OUR ART WOULD NOT BE POSSIBLE.

HAVE A SAFE AND WONDERFUL SUMMER!

ART AUCTION

auction-02

A HUGE THANK YOU TO ALL WHO BID IN OUR ART AUCTION! WE MADE JUST OVER $400.00 AND WILL USE THE MONEY TO OBTAIN TABLETOP EASELS FOR OUR STUDENTS TO USE. IF I CAN GET A GOOD ENOUGH DEAL AND HAVE SOME MONEY LEFT OVER I WILL PURCHASE GLAZE FOR NEXT YEAR’S POTTERY CLASS.

AGAIN, THANK YOU. IT IS A PLEASURE TO TEACH YOUR STUDENTS AND TO WORK AT SUCH A FINE SCHOOL.

REMINDER

The year-end project is due May 24th and will be worth 100 points.

Student projects are to be based on an artist or art movement that we studied in class. The one-page paper is to be typed and should describe how the project relates to the artist or movement.
THIS MEANS that you show an understanding of the principle qualities of the artist’s style or movement style and how those were emulated in your project.
Students will fill in a rubric as well.

COLOR WHEEL TEST

Colorwheel-1

WE WILL HAVE A COLOR WHEEL TEST ON MAY 18TH. THIS IS THE SAME PRACTICE TEST THAT WE HAD AT THE BEGINNING OF THE YEAR. I PASSED THESE TESTS BACK AND TOLD EACH STUDENT TO KEEP THEIR TEST INSIDE THEIR ART JOURNAL AS WE WOULD TAKE THE TEST AGAIN BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR. STUDY YOUR PRACTICE TEST AND THIS ONE WILL BE EASY.

The information is on my blog under the color wheel.
Remember that if you need additional information, go to www.artyfactory.com.

ONLY 8 CLASS PERIODS LEFT?

This year has gone by way too fast! I am so not ready to wind things up!

For those who did poorly on the Art Movement and Terminology test I will allow a second take on the test for half credit on each corrected answer. This may be done Tuesday May 2nd or Thursday May 4th in class. Again, all of the material for the test is on my blog.

We will complete our studies for this year by choosing an art movement or artist’s style and do a project in that choice. Each student will choose for themselves what they want to do and the movement/style they wish to emulate.

They will write a one-page paper on their choice and how their project represents that artist or movement.

This project will be due May 24th.

ART AUCTION

We began setting up for our art auction today and hope that you will enjoy our show.

I am pleased with the hard work of our students and their accomplishments this year, especially when I remember that they are only junior high aged students, many of whom have not had previous art experience.

Come by and enjoy our show and we encourage you to support our auction for art equipment and supplies.

Our goal is to raise $800.00 for easels and possibly pottery wheels.

Thank you, again

See you this week!

END OF TERM

Today marked the end of term and the beginning of the new term. The year has flown by and I always have so much more that I would like to share than we have time to cover.
Our test was postponed and will be given on Tuesday March 28th.
We will hold a silent art auction the week of April 24th through the 28th and the proceeds will be used to purchase individual table top easels for the students to use. We are excited to share with you our masterpieces and know that we will not disappoint. I have very talented students.
I will be gone the week of April 3rd through the 7th. If that time is needed to work on our art show, supplies will be available for the students to do so. If not, we will pursue One, Two and Three point perspectives. I will need to determine this as we get closer to that date.
Please do not hesitate to contact me. I will make myself available for tutoring as needed; just talk with me so that we may arrange a time.
