  • April 6, 7, and 10 Students will be in Art Monday, Tuesday, and Friday of this week (tech on Wednesday and Thursday). In art we are beginning to design and create our Nets Project using the information we "discovered" before vacation. Also, Q3 grades close this week! Many students have not handed in the One-point perspective project and/or the reflection sheet that goes with it (please check the Parent Portal). I will still accept these items through this Friday.

  • March 26 The silver team is back in art Thursday and Friday before vacation. Today we began investigating and manipulating a variety of three dimensional forms in order to discover and draw the NET (a two dimensional pattern of connected shapes) of each form. The Nets Project will be worked on in class after the break over numerous class periods. The Nets Project combines art and math (activities and vocabulary) and the product will a be three dimensional, multi-media creation. Students will have the opportunity be as creative as they choose to stretch their imaginations in presenting the required information (most students choose to create some type of mobile or three dimensional poster). Attached to this post find the list of ...

  • Students are back in Tech, however... Twenty-three students on the silver team did not hand in the one-point perspective project and the reflection sheet that goes along with it (again, attached here for your convenience with the vocabulary sheet as students should RAVE their answers). If you (or your child is, parents) are one of these students it is reflected on the ParentPortal. I will still accept this assignment though points are being taken off (more each day) for lateness!
