Visual Art Exit Assessment

posted Jan 9, 2013, 5:39 AM by Molly Marshall   [ updated Jan 9, 2013, 5:40 AM ]

We are taking our exit assessment in art this week. The best part is that we are using moodle for the testing, so we are in the computer lab, this means when students are done they get to make digital art! Check out the attachment below for some of the sites students like to explore.

The First Semester is Almost Over

posted Jan 3, 2013, 5:47 PM by Molly Marshall

6th Grade will be switching from art to computers in the next couple of week, at the semester change. Parents please watch for your students portfolio filled with their artwork to come home by the end of this week. We will be wrapping up our semester by glazing, taking exit assessments, and finalizing loose ends of projects. I am sad to see the 6th graders go, but excited for the 5th graders to have a chance to experience art this year!

Sooper Yooper Winners!

Whitney Edson and Kersten Bowers were both selected as winners of the Sooper Yooper contest. Their art was selected by the contest organizers. They were awarded with a certificate and a cash prize. There was also a special ceremony for them at the Grand Rapids Art Museum. It was a very special day and it was exciting to see how many students from BCPS grades 5-12 were chosen as winners! Here are a few photos from the event.

6th grade art students are in the planning process for their clay totem pole sculptures. Here are a few photos of their progress so far.
In Social Studies students are learning about Canada, so this is a perfect connection to learn about the traditional art of totem poles in Art.
