I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way - things I had no words for.  ~Georgia O'Keeffe

Art is a shadow of what a person is thinking... a small glimpse of what they hold inside.  Little secrets, regrets, joys... every line has its own meaning.  ~Sarah, Los Cerros Middle School, 1999



Welcome to Mrs. Mitchell's art site.

 Welcome to the wonderful world of visual art!  Throughout these classes you will be creating original artwork using a variety of media that will challenge your problem solving abilities and technical skills.  During this courses, you will work toward the following Utah Core goals:

·         learn how to use various art media (Create)

·         demonstrate your understanding of various art media and art concepts through the production of several original works of art.

·         be able to analyze and describe (Critique) art using proper terminology;

      ·         appreciate some of the major movements and concepts within the evolution of visual art (Historical context).


Because every class reacts differently to each assignment, I am never quite sure how long a unit will take to complete. Because of this, I will post units with assignments, but a specific time frame for completion may not be posted. I will also post power point presentations, brief explanations
of assignments, and sample images, but these are not a replacement for sitting in a classroom, watching demonstrations, being available for help, and collaboration with other students.
