Get ready for a great year in art next year!  Here's some classroom information:

Course Description:

Art I is a prerequisite course for all other higher/advanced visual art courses. Your performance  and effort determines if you meet the standards in these courses. Disciplined based art education (DBA) will be the foundation of the art courses, involving the production, criticism, history, and aesthetic values in the art content. With the disciplines and processes introduced in the class students will creatively apply with projects the elements of art, (line, color, shape, texture, space, value, and form) during the first nine weeks and continue to explore the principles of art (balance, contrast, movement, unity, pattern, rhythm, emphasis, harmony) the second nine weeks.  Formative assessments will be given with portfolio reviews and collaborative project critics.  A final semester exam will include vocabulary, written response and student work created during the exam.  Students will have many opportunities to participate in local and statewide art cometitions.and exhibitions. 

Art II teaches students more proficient art techniques. Students will explore a variety of two-dimensional and three dimensional media throughout the semester to build artistic confidence and creativity. Students will continue to developed their knowledge of the art language and the art media.  Students will work with drawing (blending/shading techniques, watercolor, pen and ink, printmaking, mixed media, acrylics, sculpture, textiles).  This course will lay the continuing groundwork for further study in other art classes and help build an art portfolio.

Art III/IV  students in art 3 will continue to develop their art knowledge with a student-choice driven approach to artistic learning.  Students in the advanced levels/honers art classes should have a foundation in art technics and the art language with knowledge of art history from Art 1 and Art 2.  With these classes, students will keep a journal tracking their progress while they plan and create projects.  Students will develop five projects per nine weeks (10 total)  with a emphasis on media, artist, connection to 1. self 2. society 3. movement/trend During the first week of school we will discuss global connections, and requirements for the projects as a class.  I will also determine the previous content knowledge and art technical skills (what mediums students understand, tools they know) and their art history knowledge.

* Grades will be determined based on written work, tests, projects, sketchbooks, and active participation

You will receive a grade for each project. When you turn your project in ON TIME you have the chance to receive points out of 100. If you do not turn your work in on time it is considered LATE. Late work will not be excepted the next day. However, you can turn your work in by the next project due date to receive a grade no higher than a 79.  Now, if you turned your work in ON TIME you will have the option to redo your work for a higher grade. You can receive up to half the missed points. You will have one week to resubmit your work and you must make a note as well as tell me so I know to go back and look for your work.

Artistic Integrity:

Plagiarism policy does not apply only to the written word, but also to visual plagiarism. All students are expected to exercise artistic integrity throughout the course and not use another’s idea as your own.

Project Documentation:

Documentation is a very important aspect of art making and will be crucial component to this class. Most often, a viewer will not be able to travel to see an artist’s work in person, in a gallery or museum, but will instead see an image of it in a book or on the Internet. A work of art can also be time-based, which means that it is impermanent in nature. Because of this, it is important for work to be well documented, in order for it to exist beyond the limits of a specific place and time. You will be required to document each assignment in a digital format that is appropriate for your project.

You will be told ahead of time when your work is due.

On your due date you will need to do two things:

1. Upload Photos to Google Classroom. You will need a final stage of your artwork. Photos should be of the

best quality, cropped and enhanced if needed.

2. You will present your work in front of the class. Your peers will critique your work during this time.

Bring Your Own Technology Policy:

Please note that there will be a designated time and place for it to be used. The only time it is appropriate to use tablets, laptops, smartphones, etc. will be when permission is granted. The use of technology should not be assumed. There will be no watching Netflix, YouTube, scrolling through songs, etc. during class, this will result in consequences. This is considered misuse of technology.
