This week (and Monday of next week) is PARCC testing. In UA classes, this means that we lose two entire class periods for the week, but are also kicked out of our classrooms with no access to our equipment or supplies during that time. Challenging, to say the least.
Therefore, art classes and music classes combined forces in the auditorium and completed a mini-unit on musical theater (our concentration was "The Lion King"). We watched the movie and completed an analysis of musical and visual art elements and qualities and how choices that the musicians and artists make can help to tell the story.
In other art news...
I found two great articles this week that are pretty useful for the free time that happens when you finish the PARCC test early... you have a sheet of scratch paper, so why not doodle?

Thanks for another great week!
