Mrs. Gillis' Art Room

Once again this year, the  art teachers at Ball, Chatham, and Glenwood Elementary schools will be integrating the new Illinois Fine Art Standards into the curriculum.  One standard is a “Presenting Standard” in which students learn to keep and maintain a body of artwork, as well as select a piece of their work for display later in the year at Open House. Each student will learn about portfolios and create their very own to meet this standard. The portfolios will store each students' work for the year and be kept at school in the art room. All artwork will be sent home at the end of the school year. Parents will be informed of their students' progress through report cards and rubrics used to formally assess work.

Thanks to a talented fellow-specials teacher, we are now able to enter project grades into a digital rubric and print them out.  This will allow us to grade more quickly and efficiently, since we will no longer have to hand-write names, project titles, and grades! Additionally, they are much smaller and will use less paper in the long run.  If you have any questions regarding the new rubric, please email me!
