Welcome to ARTCLASSNEWS, 
                               the Bodine Arts website! 
This website is a learning tool exclusively for the Bodine community. Designed & maintained by Ms. Fitzpatrick, Bodine Visual Arts teacher, this website is private and not open to the public. 


What we do. 
All art classes introduce students to concepts linked to contemporary or historical art forms. In each class, a wide variety of techniques will be covered. Techniques are taught and students practice them. Students gain skills before being asked to produce a finished product. Home assignments involve reading/watching something informative to assist in work you'll do in class. Students plan ideas and make their finished products. In each lesson, students spend time writing about art and learning from each other. Lesson routines are based on a 5 step creative process. Using this process, every student has the opportunity to do well in art classes at Bodine!

This site features artwork by Bodine students. It is located on the coursework pages at the top of the navigation bar.
