The first week of the 2nd 9 weeks has been great!!
Most students in 6th & 7th grades turned in their parent signature sheets this week. If your child didn’t turn that in, please make sure they do so on Mon. so that they will not lose their Halloween Dress up day.
Next Week: (Oct. 26-30)
6th and 7th grade students will have a bell ringer quiz on Friday and will need to turn their completed bell ringers in from the first two weeks of class. They should look over and study these so that they will do well on their Friday quiz.
6th Grade: Students will continue and finish their folder designs. They have learned to make balloon letters writing their names. Next week they will add expressive stick figures to their designs so that their name balloons can be held up. Also, students will be introduced to art criticism as they write their first art critique using the 4 steps of art criticism.
See the video here to learn to draw expressive stick figures.
7th Grade: Students will continue and finish their folder designs. They have learned how to write their names in 3D, one point perspective, block letters. They will finish adding color on Monday & Tues. They will also practice critiquing, in writing, a work of art. Later in the week we will begin with lessons on using value in drawing as they practice drawing three dimensional forms.
8th Grade/Advanced Art: Students will continue their Pop Art Playing Card Self Portraits this week.
Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT WEEKEND, Mrs. Pulliam
