Today’s assignment: Discussion Question 6.6
Please find and share an art related article you think is interesting. Post your thoughts and the link to Google Classroom or e-mail me. (Example below)

Example: I have seen several articles covering “the Wave” recently, so I explored and found that a South Korean team used anamorphic perspective (a way of creating optical illusions based on where the viewer is standing) to create this incredible effect. Check it out at the link below:

Reminder – gradebooks close at midnight this Friday. Please get any missing work to me no later than 9PM Friday so I have time to grade them.

Have a day!

Happy Tuesday! It’s our last week of school — be sure to finish strong guys!

You may turn in any late/missing work until Friday (5/22). Gradebooks will close down at midnight Friday.

Today’s assignment: Sketchbook 6.6: VOYAGE
No vocab today, just create a sketch using the theme of “Voyage.” 🙂

Hello gang!!! Well, this is our last week of school and I am very proud of those of you who have stuck through this pandemic without wavering or letting it get you down. I applaud your hard work and commend you on your strength to push forward.

This week we are continuing to do our ZOOM classes on Tuesday and Wednesday. 7th grade will be at 1pm and 8th grade will be at 1:30pm on both days. Thursday I will post my written assignment on my blog and they will be due to me via email no later than 5pm on Friday.

Since this is the last week, you will need to submit all missing assignments to me before Monday 5/25/2020, due to the fact that I will have to finalize all grades in skyward.

I am looking forward to seeing you all in my classes this week and for those of you that will be moving forward into the high school, I will miss you and always remember that we are always here to help you if you need it. Thank you all for a historical year.

As always, stay safe, stay healthy, and stay positive!!!!
