1812 Update

I am attaching a permission slip to this update. I have been receiving a lot of emails asking when I was handing them out. If you recall, I sent them out last week with the students. So, I figured it would be better to just have it for you here on the blog to grab at any time. Again, the permission slip with the money has to be turned into me before September 27th.

6th Grade: Today you were given time to finish the color wheel spinner. Once finished, you were asked to continue working on the zentangle from the beginning of the year. These will be due Friday, 9/13. Please turn your zentangle in to me when you are done.

This week we will begin working on observational drawing, focusing on contours and the work of pop artist Jim Dine.

7th & 8th Grade: Today we worked on our Peter Max inspired paintings. As you get these finished, please keep them in your cabinet until I am ready to collect them. I will collect the Peter Max Project on Wednesday, 9/11. When you finish your Peter Max painting, please finish your zentangle from the beginning of the year. These will be due Friday, 9/13. Please turn the zentangle in to me when you are done.

This week, 7th grade will be working collaboratively to create large-scale op art and 8th grade will begin learning about the ancient art of micrography.

ALL CLASSES: Sketchbook 1.6 “Cabin” is due Friday, 9/13. This week’s vocab term is medium / media. I will have the vocab definition posted on Wednesday during class.
