Welcome to art!  This was the first week for "C" Term 6th grade art classes.  We began class by sending home a permission slip for Artsonia.com, which is our digital art gallery on the web!  Students can share photos of their artwork with family and friends via the internet!  Permission slips were due today - if you need another copy, you can grab one here, via the main art webpage.

We spent the week learning about drawing block letters and 1-point perspective technique for making our letters look 3-D.  We will use these skills for our first sketchbook drawing (a name design), which will be due next Thursday, November 21st.  Details for all of our art assignments can be found on the 6th grade art webpage.  You can also e-mail me if you ever have any questions!

Welcome also to my seventh graders returning to art this year!  This was the first week for "C" Term 7th grade art classes.  We also sent home Artsonia.com permission slips, which were due today - if you need another copy, you can grab one here, via the main art webpage.  (If you're wondering why you need to turn one in, even though you filled one out last year, it's because I update information every year!)

We spent the week learning about 2-point perspective and surrealism.  We will use these skills for our first sketchbook drawing (a surreal landscape), which will be due next Thursday, November 21st.  Details for all of our art assignments can be found on the 7th grade art webpage.

Eighth grade students started a new project this week!  Students are creating a pixel version of a "selfie" (a self-portrait photo), which was e-mailed to me earlier in the week.  Students that did not provide a selfie had a photo taken by me in class, and they will create a pixel version of that photo.  This drawing will take us quite a while, but the results are pretty fun!

Today, sketchbook drawing #2 (a scene from a book) was due.  Be sure to stay up-to-date on your grades via Powerschool, so you don't have any missing assignments!
