In 7th grade art, each student studies the elements of art and principles of design through creative art experiences. Students experience the use of a variety of media along with studying artists and art history. During the semester course, art projects will include drawing, painting, ceramics, an Adopt-an-Artist project/report, a self-evaluation and a study of art history. Students are required to keep a notebook, which will include slide notes, sketches and tests. Papers must be kept neat and organized. All students are to bring a pencil and eraser to every class. They may wish to keep an art shirt in their locker. Each student is expected to be courteous at all times. They are to remain in their places unless they are getting supplies.
During presentations and
demonstrations, students are expected to be attentive. Quiet talking is
permitted while working. All students are responsible for cleaning up all
messes and returning all materials to their proper places. I expect all
students to be working ever day in class. For each day students are not
working, 2 points will be deducted from their final grade. All art students
will have art work on display in the annual art show. Students are responsible
for their work. Students that do not take their art work home will have their
final art grade lowered.
Please remember to send a 1” – 1.5” ring binder notebook so your artist can keep their notes and papers organized. There is an open note test at the end of each art history study.
