I can’t believe this nine weeks is coming to a quick end soon. This is our 8th week, so that means only one week left after this one.
Here’s what’s happening………
6th & 7th grade be reminded of a bell ringer quiz this coming Friday…you will turn bell ringers in also.
6th & 7th grades: FINAL EXAM is scheduled for Tues., Oct. 6th …….. Students were given a check sheet a couple of weeks ago to use as a study guide. Please look over this to see what you may need to review.
8th grade you will have a test over content that will be given to you this Wed. in class. 8th grade also, remember your sketchbooks are due this Friday (shaded self portrait).
This week in the classroom:
6th grade: you will have a busy and fun week in Art. Mon. & possibly Tues. work on “My favorite part of Cynthiana is…” drawing. Wed. you will have a review packet to work on in prep for your final test, Thurs.-Create your accordion folded book from your marbled paper and Friday-learn about the art of origami. Here is an example of small scale paper marbling you could do at home.
7th grade: you will continue to work on your Adopt A Highway posters this week. You will also have a reading assignment about ancient cultures on Wed. with a few questions. You will then use the information from your reading to create a couple of ancient culture inspired works of art.
8th grade: you will work on your masks this week as you begin to paint them and add other accessories. You will also be given a reading assignment this week featuring four famous early American artists. You will read to learn about their contributions not only to art, but to our history in providing visual clues and information in regards to our culture and heritage.
The 6th grade band students from the gold team who are in my 7th period class will finish their zen-doodle hand designs this week. They will also have a reading assignment this week with questions to help them absorb some of the basic content of a visual art class.
