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.

Take this test, to determine what your "Creative Type" is. Try to upload the PDF of your results to this folder on my Google Drive.

Until Google Sites includes a blog page, I am also using Blogger (which is also owned by Google) as a way to teach students other methods of creating an online portfolio.

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.

Extended Vacation Assignment (if You're out for any reason).

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 is a link to a sample website with the kind of information you need to include on your Blog page (or Reflections page) for the vacation assignment. You can copy and paste the questions to your site from this example, and complete the sentences. Watch this video to view the information you need to include.
