Welcome to Visual Art & Design program at the Creative Performing Media Arts Middle School, in San Diego, CA. This is a link to the calendar for 2018 - 2019 school year.

If you took the survey and chose Visual Art for the 2018-2019 School year, please log in to your district account.

The 2018 -2019 school year promises to be an especially exciting one. More students signed up for the Fine Art class than the Multimedia Design courses, so this is going to be more of a foundational year for many of you. The small icon to the right is the presentation for the "Elements & Principles of Art" (to get the vocabulary used in our classes).

Though we had a lot of difficulties with Weebly last year, we will be playing with both Weebly and Google Sites (which is how this site is built). All students in the Visual Arts program at CPMA will be managing their online portfolios through Google Sites. I will post a page where you can view all our students' sites. This will also serve as a forum where students can comment and critique one another's' work, preparing them for future online courses. [For comparison, this is a link to the previous superStArtists Weebly site].

To learn more about me, click this link to read my bio page on the CPMA website. For students from previous years, if you're still accessing the previous two years sites, click this link to access that site. Over the course of the next several months I will be phasing that site out, and all information will be accessible here.

If you know you're going to be missing class, due to an extended vacation with your family or other travel reasons, click on this link to download and print instructions for an assignment you can do, to make up the lost time in either your Multimedia Design or Drawing & Painting class. Remember: if you have more than one class, you must do four photojournalism assignments per week.

Here's an example of a blog entry with photos I took while on a trip to Tucson, Arizona a few years ago, that you can use as an example for your Vacation Photo-Blog.
